When Mapiful reached out to Scot and I and pitched us their maps, we knew we had to jump on board! We’ve never had a sentimental item that signified our love story, and then Mapiful came along and it’s now one of our most treasured decor pieces!

Essentially Mapiful takes meaningful memories and turns them into a longitude, latitude map. Our map is where Scot and I first met in high school pottery class. There are so many ways to customize your map, and I chose to put “You are my greatest adventure” at the bottom of our map, because that’s what Scot is, my greatest adventure!

Our map design is the following:

  • Pantone

  • Legend

  • White/black combo

We removed the longitude and latitude and replaced it with our quote. The shipping of our Mapiful was INSANELY fast, especially considering it came all the way from Sweden! Do you have a special place you fell in love, or met your significant other? Or maybe you traveled somewhere that left you speechless and full of new memories? Create a map from Mapiful today to display in your own home!


When it comes to tough smells, we need something that can combat it without harming us even more. That’s one reason why we are so in love with our new Bamboo Activated Charcoal Air Freshener bag!

This aesthetically pleasing beanbag is the perfect solution for any space in your home that has strong odors. Personally and for our home in particular this space happens to be our laundry room. Both of our dogs sleep in our laundry room at night, so between their dog blankets, dog bed, and any additional dirt they drag inside, the smell is extremely prominent.

Aside from our dogs sleeping in the laundry room we also have the second leading source of foul odor in our home and that’s our shoe bin at the bottom of our wardrobe! These shoe bins house all of our children’s shoes, including baseball cleats and basketball shoes. If you are a mom and have children, then no more explanation is needed, you get me. The shoe bin for sure tops all the dog smells.

We placed our Bamboo Activated Charcoal Air Freshener in the wardrobe shoe bin. We cannot wait to check back in a few days with the results!

So now that I shared our problem areas in our home, and where we’re placing our bag, I want to share a few things we LOVE about this product, and the company that created it!

  • It’s a new brand of premium activated charcoal air purifying bags.

  • Its an all natural way to remove odors from the air and is not only toxin-free, but also eco-friendly!

  • They’re completely fragrance free!

I love that this product is fragrance free, as I’m extra sensitive to smells. HOWEVER, my favorite thing about Bisou Natural is that for every air purifying bag that is purchased, they PLANT A TREE. That is such a commendable action to implement in a business. That alone motivates me to buy one for every problem area we have!

So let’s get into the good stuff! How do you purchase? You can purchase your own Bamboo Activated Charcoal air freshener on Amazon HERE. You can select from two color choices pink or green, we personally own the green one! The best part? Right now they’re UNDER $10! That is such a steal.

If you’ve never stumbled upon Bryant’s Etsy account BT Design + co, what have you been waiting on? His shop is affordable, printable wall decor. I love the broad variety he offers. Each piece can literally fit perfectly in any space. I was instantly drawn to this “Be a nice human” print. It’s such a positive message, and one I want our children to read every time they’re in our family room.

When it came to framing this piece, I went with Custom picture frames.. Not only do you have endless possibilities on their website when it comes to framing, but they’re sorted in style categories which I LOVE. That feature makes it so convenient, and perfect for the indecisive individuals (cough…me). I went with the Scandinavian selections, specifically this frame.

The digital print process was so effortless, Bryant it sent directly to my Dropbox. I printed mine at Costco as a 20x30 print. This Custom Picture frame is a 24x36. I opted for no mat, but might change my mind and add one now that it’s up on the wall! The best part about these two combined together? The frame is non-glare acrylic, making it non-reflective, and super lightweight!

We are extremely passionate about clean products. A big goal for 2019 is to slowly eliminate hazardous toxin filled chemicals and replace them with natural, non-harmful, ingredients. If you can relate to this goal, then Gold + Ivy Co candles are for you and your home.

Store bought candles have a long laundry list of negative ingredients that essentially just pollute the air you’re breathing. Gold + Ivy Co candles are hand poured, made from cotton wicks, phthalate free essential oils. We also love that they’re in reusable jars using American-grown soy wax. It just doesn’t get much better than that. Actually, it does. This Toasted Marshmallow scent will take you right back to childhood campfires. It has won over the noses of the entire household.

We highly encourage you to check out Gold + Ivy Co. Not only will your purchase put you on the right track to a safer home, but you’ll be supporting a small business!
