I can remember sitting on my couch watching the Kardashians and admiring their lushes home bar. My “bar” at this point was just a sad mini-fridge and looked very…college dorm-like. I wasn’t very proud of it. However, instead of remaining jealous, I started to consider what I could do to dress up this space. I thought up this hack and not only does it look gorgeous, but it wasn’t that expensive either!
It seems as like as fast as the world opens up, it’s shutting down again. Here in Massachusetts, things are still much the same as they were the whole year with lots of time being spent indoors and only going out if I have a mask and a bottle of hand sanitizer on me. However, there’s still lots of fun to be had indoors. Regardless of whether or not you have kids or not, this craft is fun at any age. Who knew that personalizing your own mug could be so fun!
July is iconic summer weather here in Massachusetts. It’s usually pretty warm (except for that one time a few years ago we actually had a cold snap and I wore a sweater), and there are lots of fun things to do. For the summer I wanted to create something really fun that would be a way I could preserve my memories of nice beaches, as well as functional. I loved the color (and the taste) of this wine which I got at Trader Joes, and I decided to give it a fun summertime decoration and I LOVED how it turned out. So, of course, I had to share it with you!
What I thought was going to be a fun easy little project turned out to be so much more. This was seriously like a bad romance. It was fun in the beginning, then little disappointments added up, then it came down to sheer commitment to finish the project. Now as I sit here writing this, I’m looking at this beautiful little thing I created and kind of wanting to do it again…kind of…maybe…I’m going to show and tell you about its twists and turns and all that went into such a little package and YOU can decide if you have enough of your life to
waste spend on gluing, shaping, and even soldering micro-sized things to create this. The only advice I can offer should you chose to go on this journey is “Take your time and Good luck”.
Are you missing the mall so much that you want your home to smell as good as Williams-Sonoma did? Well, you’re in luck! This pot-pourri is gonna do just that. You might not be able to go to the mall, but at least your home will smell fabulous!
Nothing smells better in the morning than coffee…and I drink decaf!!! Coffee just has a naturally invigorating smell so I’m really happy to show you how to make this Coffee Soap! Not only does it smell fantastic, but the ground coffee acts as a mild exfoliant to give your skin a bit of a wake up as well! It’s currently my husband’s favorite soap!
I love really unique soaps. I also like saving money and you can do both! I made this Tropical Coconut Lime Soap a few weeks ago and I’ve been using it in the shower and it’s been amazing. It’s very hydrating on the skin and feels like I got it from a store at the mall. The smell of coconut and lime is so invigorating that it’s just perfect for morning showers.
I had something completely different planned for this post. Actually, my original plan was to write about how to throw a fun Cinco De Mayo party, but with everyone practicing social distancing or being asked to stay in their homes (like me right now), I thought it would be best to change up my plan. So hopefully this inspires you to add a new hobby to your repertoire.
Spring is a beautiful time of year for me. Honestly, the winters in Massachusetts can be really bad with tons of snow and blizzards, so when the first hints of spring start showing like little green blades of grass I get excited.
I’ve seen pictures of this Topiary for your dinner table floating around online and I love the freshness it has. So I decided to make one myself and share how you can make one of your own! It’s a nice fresh looking centerpiece that you can use to decorate your dining room table. It didn’t take a lot of materials either.
So if you’re looking to bring in some of that spring time flare into your home this is perfect for you!
A few days ago I heard the much-welcomed sound of birds singing. For those of you who may live in warmer places, birds tend to migrate to warmer places and return in the spring. So after a few months of silence, you can imagine how nice it is to hear them again. Last year I made this wreath and the birds and squirrels LOVED it. This year, I changed up the birdseed a bit and got great results. If you would like to welcome your birds back with a nice treat just read on.
