hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

learn more about ME + MY BIZ

I was turned on to Mrs Meyer’s Clean Day household cleaners by The Nester, and am I ever grateful! These products are not only earth-friendly, but they have the most delicious scents. Mrs. Thelma Meyer’s was tired of those harsh-smelling chemicals she always used for cleaning, so she developed her own line of products that provide an aromatherapeutic experience while you clean! Amazing!
My absolute favorite scent is Basil. I could honestly stand next to the candle and sniff it all day long. One sniff takes me to a happy place. I’m not kidding- I adore this scent. It actually edged out my old favorite candle: Sage & Citrus by Yankee Candle (This is a wonderful smell, as well, but does NOT do for me what Mrs.Meyer’s Basil does for me.) I bought Monica a bunch of Mrs. Meyer’s products for Christmas (I know, wierd gift, but I knew she’d love it!) and now she’s hooked too!
The products come in a variety of garden scents like Lemon Verbena, Lavender, Geranium, Baby Blossom, Apple, Honeysuckle, and even includes a scent-free version for all you scent-haters out there. And their products will change your view of cleaning: from laundry, general household cleaning, and air fresheners to hand and body products and baby care.
I found these products at Target, but I also recently saw them at Walmart.
 Or, order directly from Mrs. Meyer’s herself!

    I’ve been following since day one & get excited everytime you post something new. I absolutely HATE cleaning but maybe I would like it just a little bit more if the scents were yummy! I’m going to head to target this weekend to pick up some to try! Thanks girls!

    I’ve been following since the beginning! but just now made it official 🙂 So far you’ve almost convinced me I need to get up off the couch and do something with my house… but the couch is still winning, in time I’m sure I will put your posts into action. I love love love all natural stuff and haven’t tried this brand yet. Thanks for the blog girls!

  16. Becca says:

    Ugh, mad I missed your first giveaway! Hopefully you’ll do more:) Just this morning as I was cleaning my bathroom, I was wishing that I could find the perfect cleaning supplies (tried the whole vinegar and water thing–wasn’t too impressed with the results in the bathroom, yet want to go more natural than Lysol). Anyway-thanks for the heads up , gonna give Mrs. Meyers a chance.
