The Reveal of Sexy “Garage” Windows


If you read my first post…..(pause for read)……you know how I feel about the garage windows.  Just because windows happen to be in the garage doesn’t mean, they make the curb appeal of your home even more enhanced.  It’s obvious your windows can have a negative affect…just by looking my sad yellowing plastic blinds. 

So let’s keep it simple.  These magical blinds will do:

  • What the corded ones did but look neater
  • Will give you all kinds of curb appeal for any of your windows
  • Not break the bank to have your house look like all is in order in the interior :-)

If you’re looking for blinds that will:

  • Block the light (but not make your room black)
  • compliment your existing window coverings
  • Easy to install without a bunch of tools
  • Easy to use daily

THAN this is your find!!


I’m not big on selling people.  Proof is in the pudding and this pudding taste good!



If you’ve entertained the idea of new window coverings, check these out!  Thanks Leveler and Lowes for making my curb appeal fresh and revived. Read more about your choices  HERE.

Garage Windows Can Be Sexy Too! | Levolor Cordless Blinds




The Problem.  

Need I say more.  I’m so in love with our forever home.  I still after two years can hardly stand the joy!  When we bought this sexy beast, the two windows in the front of the house had no blinds.  Now, probably because those two windows belong to a garage and there really isn’t anyone going to see them (except the all day passer byers that drive by).  Of course since we were just focused on the inside of the house, we threw up some cheap-o on sale special plastic blinds.  

Cue sad sob music!  Look at those pitiful things.  I will divulge – they started out WHITE!  I know, I can barely believe it myself.  It only took two years for these plastic cheap-o’s to yellow.  I drive right into the garage everyday and turn my head hoping not to see how my beautiful white shutters in every other window of the house don’t really pronounce the fact that our two front windows are yellowing. 




The Solution. Levolor Cordless faux wood blinds

I have no problem is trying to “SEXY-up my garage windows, not at all.  Levelor® thought the same thing.  The opportunity to try out the absolutely stunning and affordable Levelor® cordless faux wood blinds was more than perfect for this space.  Just take a peak with this link (a TON of choices) and the image below.  NO CORD(s)!!!  You simply, pull or push and twist to allow light in.  Um, yes and please!!



Guess what?  We got’em.  What color?  Well, white of course.  Right?  Would you have gone with a darker color even though all the other windows have white shutters?  Curious to hear your thoughts.

Since our fabulous cutter (she was a bit camera-shy) was cutting our blinds – for FREE – mama had to check out another item to finish the sexy in the garage.

Since I’m here….right???  Don’t mind the crazy attire.  It’s how you dress when you come to the lumber/hardware store.  That sexy piece behind me…he would be all mine.  Celebrating our 25th this year…woot woot!!


The Install.




Having those yucky blinds down were already a huge improvement.  Wouldn’t you think?  Seriously, I can’t believe I waited this long to remove those hideous things.  

Stay tuned…..why?  The reveal of the garage space with the ever so sexy Levelor® Cordless Faux Wood Blinds installed.  A and men!

Holiday Stressing Already? Come get a little Therapy with Mary J Blige

Holiday Family Time

It’s that time of the year where I usually begin to reflect, refresh and reset for the new year. The time when family gatherings happen (rather you want them to or not).

The time when cooking happens in 8-10 hour intervals.

Since our twins have gotten older I think this is the first year I haven’t felt the stresses of the holiday season. The stress of getting everything “right”, whatever “right” might be.

I work out of the home now 40+ hours a week. The last thing on my mind is preparing a complicated pinterest recipe after working 9 plus hours, including commute time to and from work.

What I need is music time.

Musically Driven

Music allows me to reflect and refresh my mind, body and soul. How about you? I’ve been musically driven as far back as my first childhood memory. In fact, one of my first memories with my husband and I was Mary J Blige’s first album, “What’s the 411″. Remember that? I hold Mary near and dear to me and my 25 year relationship with my husband. She is our “go to” artist.

Having an opportunity to review my girl new Mary’s album, of course I had to! Take a peak, take a listen and tell me your thoughts?

10 things you should know about MJB

I absolutely love Therapy. I’m sure we could all use a little bit right now especially with the holidays fastly approaching us. Honestly, amongst the African American community therapy has never been something we talked about or entertained.
I’m more than excited to see Mary not only addressing what was never really talked about in my community in the past but putting it to music. For me, Mary’s voice has always came across as being downright truthful and sincere in all that she sings about. All in all, I’m diggin Mary’s new album and loving that she chose to change her enviroment to record this album, love, love love the whole London vide that she has intertwined into this new album.

Collaborating with my boy Sam Smith is absolutely huge. Um, can we say an Amen! Give this album a listen, get into her vibe of the music and let me know your thoughts about it. I can talk music all day
