Create Cozy Reading/Nap Areas for Kids!

I am on the prowl for a hanging wicker basket chair for our home. I fell in love with these chairs on a recent vacation where every balcony at the hotel had one. It is super cozy and it brings you back to childhood days no matter how old you are. That one (above) was big enough for hubby and I to doze off in almost every night and I thought, how fun would it be to have this at home...In the living room, our room or even in the kids room-hung low enough for them to climb in and out for story time or nap time. I know I would have loved that as a kid!

I found this one (below) at pier1imports. It is big enough for one adult and child or two kids to sit in at once. You can buy whatever color cushions to match your decor. How perfect is this...

This trick has saved me from tossing a lot of my quality sweaters in the trash.

As a woman I know how hard it is to find that perfect bathing suit when summer finally hits. It is such a rough process trying on swimwear. It gets even harder as we get older.

I actually
