Energy Efficient and Smart Home Lighting from Feit Electric

IntelliBulb Switch to Dim

The Switch to Dim bulb is great for low and high light settings. It is like 3 bulbs in one that you control in intensity from 100%, 60% or 10%. A great energy saving option because you use only the light you need and no dimmer switch needed.

Filament Bulbs

The LED Original Vintage Glass  is so exciting to me. We just bought a new home so this will be a great piece in some lamps I bought such as for the guest room for a little vintage style. The original vintage line comes in 7 designs.

Glass Color Filament Bulbs will match your personality, with the colors red, blue, orange, green, pink, yellow and purple. This would be the bulb you use while entertaining or taking certain mood photos. I will use this one in my office for product photos and can move it to the dining room over the bar for mood when entertaining. The filament bulbs are a lot of fun.

6 Tips To Get Your Home Summer Ready

*This post is not sponsored*

With the move nearing and our house in boxes I am so excited to get into our new home. For about 3 weeks an Extended Stay will be our home between needing to get out of this house and the build complete on the new one. There is something about our brand new home that has me tossing old furniture and decor to start fresh. I have held garage sales and buy/sell posts to get rid of the old and start planning for new. I have most of my furniture picked and waiting at the warehouse but the decor and organizing has my brain constantly running. So, now I am enjoying a new site I wanted to share with you called Map My House from Life Storage.

To start you choose the US region you live in and a season. I am focusing on Summer posts from where I live in the Northwest. The ideas are fantastic and inclusive to most areas, but you can search areas such as yard and some decor that may be region specific so head over and choose your region to find more.

6 Tips To Get Your Home Summer Ready


My pick from their Bedroom ideas that I am going to use in our new guest room is the Guest Room Clipboard Wall Art. I have been collecting brochures as we explore the town and got several from the hotel we stayed in near the new home over Memorial weekend. I plan to buy fun clipboards instead of doing them as a craft. Isn’t this an fun idea for your guests?


With the kids home all summer it may be fun to update their bathroom. Changing the rugs to a fun bright color and adding wall art like these free printables are a fun update.


You know those sports balls overflowing in totes will get used this summer. This is a fun and easy DIY Equipment Storage featured in the garage section of Map My House with wheels to easily move in and out of the garage to keep all the equipment together. Hang rackets and bats. Make it custom to your kids.

Family Room

That hardest decor shopping for me in centerpieces. I have an open concept kitchen, dining and family space so I want it to flow but be practical. Changing a space can be as easy as shopping for new couch pillows and changing your table space and you have a new look. Find some inspiration with these 10 Easy Coffee Table Decoration Ideas.


Map My House has many great dining ideas, but this one sticks out to me. Living in the Northwest we can still have very cool nights so creating a hot cocoa bar in the home or even RV is a fun idea. Find inspiration from this post, How To Create The Best Hot Cocoa Bar.


Guests coming over with last minute notice? Get to the kitchen and grab a pot. These 10 Natural RoomStovetop Potpourri Recipes will help get rid of that dirty dog, diaper pail overflowing, dirt & boys smell in your home.

I am so inspired by these ideas and have this site bookmarked. Head on over to Map My House.

LED Lights – LOFTEK Rechargeable Ball Lamp Cordless Night Light

Sample sent for feature


Whether you need soft light inside or outside, you will love the color choices and amount of light the LED Ball Lights from LOFTEK puts out. We had a weekend of nice weather and I decided to use my LED lights outside. It is so pretty lit up at night. I love the soft pink and blue colors. There are 16 colors total to choose from.

Of course, you can use indoors also. There is a protective cap when you use it outside so that water stays out of the charging port but I plan to keep mine in our guest bedroom for fun when we have the older kids over and then I can easily carry outside when we entertain.


Not only is this a great party or decor light, it is also eco-friendly. These LED lights are completely free of UV, IR, lead, mercury, and other toxic elements. Choose from round, cube, stump, mushroom, pyramid and Christmas tree shapes. You can really put life into a space with a few different shapes lit up in different colors for your home.
