Vintage Airplane Bedroom Ideas

Vintage Airplane Room Ideas

I’m a fan of vintage and antique items.  In fact, my mom and I have gone to our fair share of auctions buying really cool pieces of history.  This vintage airplane bedroom brings in just a bit of history into a fun and playful space.

room

The room all started with this fun bed.  The front of the bed opens for storage (which is awesome!) and the bed is the perfect size for your toddler.  Moving from a crib to a bed can be a hard transition, but with a fun bed it can be exciting.  You would think that this bed would be expensive, but it’s not!

Now you may be wondering why I’ve included this hat in a post about decorating.  But the truth is, it’s only $3.75 and cute as a button.  When decorating your space, think outside of the box.  This would look great framed in a shadow box and hung on the wall with your vintage airplane art!

Nautical Bedroom Ideas

Nautical Room Inspiration

Nautical design is a classic look that never seems to go out of style.  I love the look of this room.  That bed!  Adorable.  I also love the fact that as your child grows out of a toddler bed, this room can grow with them.  In fact, all of the decor items can be used in even a teen’s room or a spare guest room!  Nautical Bedroom Inspiration

 

I love this bed for sure!  It’s a show stopper and fun.  For toddlers it is the perfect size and I love that it isn’t high off the ground.   I was a little shocked at the price as I expected it to be very expensive.  But it isn’t!

How To Use Keyword Research To Get Your Blog Noticed

How to do keyword research and use it to benefit your blog

If a tree falls in the middle of the woods and no one is around to hear, does it make a sound?  What about if you write the most informative article and have beautiful photographs, but no one knows it exists, is it considered a success?

You may think that the answer to getting your posts seen and the key to driving the most traffic to your post is to get it on social media and cross your fingers that it goes viral.  But while social media is definitely helpful (and going viral is always something to be appreciated!) it’s not always the answer.

What should be your goal?  To rank on Google!

What does it mean to rank on Google?
—————————————————-

Google is one of the most powerful things in Internet-land.  Ranking well on Google’s search engines can mean lots of traffic, from people who are seeking the exact information that you write about (which makes them great candidates for following through with signing up for your newsletter or following you on social media).  It also means the chance for consistent, steady traffic.  If you write a post that is able to rank well on Google, it can bring in lots of consistent traffic for months or even years!  How often does that happen with social media?

Think about it…
———————-

How often do you Google something and click the first search result?  Most of the time right?  And if you don’t click the first item, I would bet that you click something on the first page.  I rarely click to page 2.  I usually find what I need in the first few search results.

That’s where you want to be!  Millions of people are searching for things everyday.  How many people are searching for what you are writing about?

How do you rank on Google?
————————————–

Well, that’s kind of a loaded question.  Google has a pretty extensive algorithm that is kept pretty secret, but luckily SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is a topic that has had tons of research!  One important factor is they keywords that you use.

Keyword Research
————————-

Taking a few minutes to research keywords can really pay off in the end!  There are several really important ways to implement keyword research into your blog.

    • Starting a blog?  Use keyword research to find a domain name that people are looking for!  I wanted to start a website for slow cooker recipes last year.  A quick search for what people were searching for that contained the key words ‘slow cooker’ and I found that a very commonly searched phrase was ‘easy slow cooker meals’.  The particular program that I use (Brainstorm it!) also told me that it had a high chance of profitability.  I thought to myself, “Hmm. What a great website name!”  Great website name (that also happened to be available!) as well as a high chance of profitability? Win!
      How to do keyword research and use it to benefit your blog
      Let’s pretend you want to start a site about coconut.  You search the term ‘coconut’ and sort by profitability.  Skimming the list of keywords can help you find ideas for domain names.  For this example, ‘miracle of coconut’ receives 1,874 approximately searches and only has 13 sites that would give you real competition making it have a high chance for profitability.  Having the phrase ‘miracle of coconut’ appear as your domain name and throughout your website will help you rank for that particular term.  Congratulations!  You have a new domain name for your new site!

 

  • Planning your posts.  Sometimes it’s hard to come up with ideas to write about.  Using a keyword research tool can help to make sure you have plenty to write about.
    How to do keyword research and use it to benefit your blog
    Now, using your list of keywords (still sorted by profitability) you can see what people are searching online for about coconuts.  I upload the list into an excel sheet and categorize them.  As you can see, you have article ideas for recipes, articles on beauty, or health benefits.  Two phrases in this list are very exciting: ‘coconut oil vitamins’ and ‘coconut oil supplement’ are highly searched phrases with very low competition.  Why are they exciting?  Well, chances are if you are searching for coconut oil vitamins or supplements you are looking to purchase them or to learn if you should purchase them.  There are 10,664 searches every month for ‘coconut oil vitamins’.  That is a lot of potential, not only for a lot of traffic (and ad revenue), but for a lot of potential affiliate sales!
  • If you have already written an article or have an idea for an article you can also do a keyword research to find out the exact phrase to use.  Look at the difference that it makes using the word vitamins rather than supplement.  Both keyword phrases have 5 sites that are considered competition, but one gets an additional 6,000 monthly searches.

How do I search for keywords?
—————————————–

I personally like Brainstorm it!  Not only does it offer the Keyword Research, but there are lots of videos and articles with ideas on how to improve your website.  It’s also not expensive – it’s about $199 for a year, but you have the option of paying monthly as well.  It’s definitely a program that I find worth the investment!

Click here for a full tutorial on how to use Brainstorm It! to search for keywords.

Healthy Homemade Mozzarella Sticks Recipe

healthy homemade mozzarella sticks

 

I’m just going to put it out there.  I’m no good at diets.  I can eat my veggies (I love veggies.)  I can eat my fruit (I love fruit.)  I can give up red meat.

But if you put some pasta, some comfort food, something sweet or well, let’s be honest, anything else in front of me and I’m going to want some of that too!

I just love food.  So the only solution that I’ve been able to think of is to make my favorite foods myself.  That way I can control what goes in and I can make healthier swaps.  That way I can eat what I want and feel good about it!

These Mozzarella Sticks are a perfect example!  These are baked and not fried making them healthier than your traditional appetizers you may get.  Not to mention – they are super easy.  Make a large batch and put them in your freezer.  Then you are able to grab as many as you need, when you need them.

Healthy Homemade Mozzarella Sticks Recipe
Baked and not fried (and no butter!), these homemade mozzarella sticks are easy and a healthier version of your restaurant favorite appetizer! Make a large batch - these are great for freezing for later!
Ingredients
  • 12 sticks of string cheese in your choice of cheese – I used mozzarella
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp of flour
  • 5 tbsp of bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp of Parmesan cheese
  • A tad of olive oil, or cooking spray
Instructions
  1. healthy homemade mozzarella sticks
  2. Cut the cheese sticks in half, making 24 slices, then freeze the slices in the freezer until completely frozen.
  3. healthy homemade mozzarella sticks
  4. Beat the egg in a small bowl. Use a separate bowl to combine the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese.
  5. To bread the cheese sticks: First dip the frozen cheese stick into the flour, then into the egg, then into the bread crumb mixture.
  6. healthy homemade mozzarella sticks
  7. Once all of the cheese sticks are coated, place them on a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil coated with a few drops of olive oil or sprayed with cooking spray (this helps keep them from sticking)
  8. Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 4 minutes, or until crisp. Watch them closely so they don’t melt completely!

3 Car Hacks Every Mom Needs To Know

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of PERK for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

3 Car Hacks   Moms let’s get real.  We spend a lot of time in our cars.  Driving to play dates, vacations, the dreaded carpool lines, shuffling kids from practices and oh, the errands.  Some days it’s like they never end.  And some days it’s like we never leave our car.  Here are three tips that will help you to make your car a little more enjoyable.

1. Diaper Bags Aren’t Just For Babies

Joshua is 12 and we still have a bag.  Now it’s just a backpack, but it stays in the car.  Here is what I keep in mine:

  1. Chargers – one for each device.  These are designated ‘car only chargers’ which means just that – they stay in the car.
  2. Headphones – Again these are for the car only.  Right now Joshua’s favorite music is video game theme music.  As exciting as that is…it’s a little repetitive for Mom.  And driving down the highway during rush hour to the Halo theme song is a tad too intense for me.
  3. A book – Every so often I order a new book on Amazon and pop it in there.  Josh never knows when it will arrive and it’s always a surprise.  I always make sure to have a favorite on stand by too.
  4. Wipes – Fast food?  Spilled drinks?  No problem.  I don’t care if you have a 6 month old or a 16 year old, you should have wipes in your car.
  5. Snacks – Fruit snacks, mini bags of pretzels, and granola bars are all good choices.

3 Car Hacks

2. Keep a Laundry Basket In Your Trunk

You may have read that and thought what?! But hear me out because I swear by this one!  For some reason, making two trips to my car is just totally out of the question.  I insist on grabbing everything and hauling it in at once.  Some days I probably look ridiculous with 15 grocery bags, dry cleaning draped over my shoulder, a purse, and take out pizza (because who cooks after they go to the grocery store?) all in my hands while corralling two dogs and a child.  Now, I keep a laundry basket in the trunk.  Not only does it make carrying all those bags inside so much easier, but it keeps things from falling out of the bags and rolling around. (I learned my lesson that time I thought I forgot the sour cream at the grocery store only to find it under the back seat 3 days later.  It was summer.  My car smelled HORRIFIC.) hacks2

3. The Only Way To Get Your Car Smelling Good

Speaking of smells….I’ve tried all of the car air fresheners out there.  Some smell good for a day.  Some even last a week.  But they don’t smell as good as I would like and they don’t last.  That is until I tried PERK Visor Wrap.  Available in different scents like Summer Berry, New Car, Golden Vanilla or what is in my car right now, Carribean Colada. perk   Perk slides onto your visor.  It’s out of the way so it doesn’t look like a bunch of clutter in your car and there is nothing to hang on your mirror.  The best part?  Your visor can still work as a visor. Wait, no that’s not the best part.  The best part is this stuff smells good.  And it smells good for 30 days. Wait, no that’s not the best part either.  The best part is that I’m giving away a 6 month supply of Perk, a travel mug and 2 pairs of Perk sunglasses! Can’t wait to get your own Perk fragrance?  (I don’t blame you.)  You can find them at Walmart, Target, Advance Auto Parts, AutoZone, Meijer, Kroger, Pep Boys, Publix, CVS, and other places auto air fresheners are sold.  Don’t forget to keep in touch on PERK’s Facebook and get your $1 off PERK coupon!
