Easy 2 Minute Hack To Turn Tab Top Curtains Into Pleated Back Curtains!  So Easy!! // By Life on Sunset Drive

My favourite place to buy curtains, hands down, is Ikea.  Honestly, they have an excellent selection plus the prices can’t be beat- I paid $11 for each pair of these curtains!  E l e v e n.  Plus they are extra long at 90″, which almost the perfect height for our windows in our home.

Six Way To Stay Healthy While Travelling // By Life on Sunset Drive

My mom and I have this running joke that we only get sick when there is a big trip planned.  It happened the day before we left for our Italy trip (a man in a restaurant accidentally sneezed on my mom during breakfast!).  It happened the day after my husband and I landed in London (I came down with the flu!) and many more times.  And my mom missed one out of two weeks in Mexico because she had heat stroke.  To be honest, it’s usually my poor mom that gets the bug and we’ve really narrowed down our plan of action when travelling.  Some of these are her tried & true tips, and some are ones that I use every. single. time.  And guess what?  We rarely, if ever, get sick anymore!
