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!!Read More
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!Read More
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!Read More
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 [...]Read More
I wanted to put together some easy last minute Fall DIY Decorations. I love carving pumpkins! But this year, I was really into trying some new things. I wanted to create pumpkins that I could put around the apartment and leave out past Halloween [...]Read More
This basket bag trend is absolutely one of my favorites. It's like carrying a little picnic basket on your arm. I saw this JADETribe bag on Instagram, checked it out and the price seemed way too high for me. It also seemed pretty easy to try to make. So I sought out a basket bag on Etsy that fit the shape I was looking for, got some string and created this little designer dupe [...]Read More
I saw something similar at Anthrpologie awhile back and thought hmm I can make that! So I started researching how to make paper flowers. I realized the amount I needed to make what I was envisioning were going to take forever and I had just moved into my new apartment at the time and I desperately wanted something on my walls. So I almost abandoned the idea, but I'm so glad I didn't because this has become such a staple piece for me [...]Read More
