Skin Care Edition | Beauty Counter

Skin Care Edition | Beauty Counter

At a recent wellness conference that I attended, I met a lovely women named Carmen who is a representative for Beauty Counter. We got to talking, and her mission inspired me to truly appreciate and take notice of what goes into the products that I am putting on my skin. She sent me a package of so many goodies to try and review. I have to say, I like to use new products for about a 3-4 weeks before I can truly get a good idea of how I feel about them, and to really take notice of the effects the products are having on my skin. Let me tell you, Beauty Counter does not disappoint!

DIY Hat Wall Gallery Display

DIY Hat Wall Gallery Display

I recently cleaned out my closet and put together some bags for goodwill (best feeling ever to get rid of things) and I realized that all my hats were shoved into a basket at the top of my closet. I love me a good hat and they don't deserve to be shoved and smushed into a basket in a dark closet :P Every time I visit Anthropologie, I spend way too much time looking at their wall hooks collection. Some of them are just so pretty and I'm always like what can I do with these?! Come on think! I want them! So lightbulb went off one day when I was rummaging through and thought oh my, a hat gallery wall!!

DIY Velvet Earring Holder

DIY Velvet Earring Holder

Hi friends! Happy February! Hope you all are having a great new year. So when the weather is chilly, sometimes I get tired of wearing the same boots and sweaters (I'm a freeze baby so I always need to be covered in the winter.) When I feel like spicing up a tired outfit, I pair it with some fun earrings! I don't know about you all, but I have about a thousand little earrings and earring backs floating around everything, or in tiny random trinket bowls. I wanted something where I could put everything in one place, that was cute that I could hang up next to my other jewelry displays. This velvet earring holder is so easy to make and you only need a few supplies to make it!

DIY Himalayan Pink Salt Coconut Oil Scrub

DIY Himalayan Pink Salt Coconut Oil Scrub

I don't know about you guys but during this time of year, my hands are like the Sierra Desert. Dry, cracked, itchy, red, just gross. I made this for some friends and family as a gift last year during the holidays and it was a hit! I thought this was a good time of the year to show you guys how to put it together. It's so so easy and it can be made with only a few items that you might already have in your house! The recipe isn't anything new, its all over Pinterest. I added my own flare with some cute little wooden spoons and hand lettered labels that you guys can download here. Enjoy! Stay warm my friends, spring is near.

DIY Tassel and Pom Pom Scarf

DIY Tassel and Pom Pom Scarf

Hi everyone! Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a great holiday season. If you live on the east coast, you know how absolutely freezing it has been here. BItter cold. It was -17 with the wind chill today. I've grown up here in good ol' Cle so I am used to the cold, but man this is too much even for us natives. It makes you think even more about the homeless people and animals out there. With that said, I am volunteering at a homeless shelter with a group next week. We are making a meal and serving it to around 100 people. If you have never done it before, you should. It is nothing like you would expect. It really makes you appreciate how blessed we all are. Even as I sit here on my couch with a roof over my head, and my nice warm fuzzy socks, I take things for granted everyday. By the way, socks are actually one of the most requested items that a homeless individual is in need of. Food for thought.

With the weather so cold, I needed something fun to wear that made me want to actually leave the house. I am obsessed with this navy, rose and mustard color palette lately. When I got the idea to make this fun scarf, I went searching for the perfect knit to jazz up. I found this navy scarf at target with little specs of mustard and coral. So I went and found some yarn that matched, and got to it!

Since I have started this blog, I have had the opportunity to meet some extraordinary, inspiring women. Its not often you meet someone who is so passionate about what they do, that it just radiates from their being. I was gathered in a room with some amazing makers, doing a photoshoot for The Cleveland Flea. As we were sitting around gabbing waiting for the next shoot, I got to talking with the amazing woman behind Maeve's All Natural. She was showing off photos of her adorable little daughters and explaining to me a little bit behind her passion for her all natural skin care line [...]

DIY Clay Celestial Trinket Dish

DIY Clay Celestial Trinket Dish

With the holiday season coming up, I wanted to put together some fairly simple DIY projects that you can gift to your friends and family! This is also a very budget friendly project, and its a fun little afternoon activity. I saw these little dishes at Anthropology and they were sold out of the ones I wanted so I thought I would give making them a try! And they came out so cute. I can't wait to give them to friends! You can either do the horoscope of whoever you are giving the dish to (or yours if you're keeping it for yourself ;) or you can do a little celestial themed one like the moon and stars one [...]
