Decorating with Wall Decals

I don't know about you, but I am always afraid of hanging pictures and decorations on my walls. I never seem to be satisfied with the placement and end up moving the picture up or down or over an inch or two making holes all over the wall. Wall decals have been a gift to my walls. No more holes!

I had this space over the piano in my dining room/music room/sewing room that was crying for some wall art.

These wall decals, from RoomMates, in a music theme were just perfect.

I purchased them from A.C. Moore with a coupon. They were a great deal! $14.50 then the 50% off coupon! You can also get them at and on, my favorite online shopping place, Amazon. These decals are a great way to decorate apartment walls. My friend has been using them in her apartments for years.

They are super easy to apply. Just peel them off of the backing and stick them to the wall. The walls should be clean and dry. You need to wait 3 weeks to apply them to freshly painted walls. The package says you can apply them to wallpaper as well. You also need to wait 3 weeks to apply to freshly papered walls.

I love that you can move them around so easily. If you don't like where you put it, just peel it off and move it and there are no holes!!! They seem to stay sticky even when they have been moved several times. I highly recommend them

It was a bit overwhelming when I opened the package and saw all the pieces. I wanted to create my own design instead of following the design on the package. It took a bit of thought, organization and about 1 hour to get my wall art done.

Over time, I have tweeked the design, took it down, painted the wall, put it back up a little differently than the first design and added to it. I didn't use the gray pieces because I wanted an all black design above our black piano. I added to the design by using a black sharpie to color the gray pieces black. It worked perfectly! Here's what the design looks like right now.

I even added a music note on the light switch plate!

There are so many different styles and themes of wall decals to choose from. There are simple designs, kids designs, quotes, murals, wallpaper, etc. They even have peel and stick backsplashes that look like tile. How awesome is that! I would love to try them. 

There are also many different companies making wall decals Wall Pops, Decowall, DaGou, Meco and more. I chose a few favorite decals at the bottom of this post.

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out. Read more about blackhead, whiteheads and blind pimples This is a common problem for the under-eye area. It is a dry, delicate area of the skin. I see it a lot on my clients. Heavy products

Why does my lipstick change color on my lips?

So, you found a gorgeous shade of peachy nude lipstick.... right on trend. It looks amazing in the lipstick tube but when you put it on, it turns orange within 15 minutes!  It happens to me all the time. Pigments in the lipstick react with the chemistry of the skin and change color. This color shift is due to the pH of the skin. Our skin has an acidic pH of 4.5 to 5.5. It varies slightly from person to person which is why lipstick changes on some people and not others.  The oil, sweat and bacteria on our skin create a protective layer called the acid mantle with its pH of 4.5 to 5.5. The acid mantle can change due to how we treat our skin.  The skin pH can change due to the environment.  The sun, as well as pollution, can affect skin's pH.  What we eat can affect the pH of our skin.  Sweating and cosmetic products can also change pH.  The skin will always try to get back to 4.5-5.5 no matter how we abuse it.  Use gentle pH balanced skin care products, eat a healthy diet w


This post is all about dermatofibromas and some remedies to help make them look better and ways hide them. It includes my Amazon Affiliate Links to help you find the products I talk about. Q. I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j
