Once your kids have flown the coop, they will appreciate little reminders of home every so often. The best way to show your newly independent kids that you’re thinking of them is with thoughtful DIY college care packages. We’re not suggesting you send one every week, but maybe send three throughout the school year. This way, they won’t feel smothered, but also won’t feel forgotten about. The three things to consider when creating a DIY college care package are to make it personalized, helpful and sharable.
Now that summer is over and fall is on its way, it’s time to refresh your skin and get rid of those pesky blackheads. Instead of buying blackhead peels or masks with all sorts of chemicals and unknown ingredients, try making your own. A DIY blackhead mask can be made of all different natural ingredients and the best part is you know exactly what goes into them.
When the cooler air finally settles in for the fall, you’ll want to have hearty, seasonal recipes on hand. One of the easiest ways to cook filling, stick-to-your-ribs dishes is with a slow cooker (also called a crockpot). Slow cookers are the ideal cooking tool because you can just set it and forget it. Put the ingredients you need into the slow cooker, turn it on and let the crockpot work its magic. When you get home from work at the end of the day you have a warm, home cooked meal waiting for you. It’s perfect! With these slow cooker recipes, you’ll always have something tasty to eat in the fall.
Much like the rest of the country, we here at Levin Furniture have been watching as the effects of Hurricane Harvey continue to devastate southeastern Texas.

However in the midst of tragedy, the people of Texas have united together in support of one another in a way that has inspired the entire country. To quote the beloved television personality, Mr. Rogers, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping”. We did not have to look too far before we found a helper with a familiar face.
