6 DIY Projects I Really Want To Try

February 13, 2015

Pinterest is the black hole of the modern woman’s time. I swear there are nights when I sit in front of the computer and pin pin pin ALL THE THINGS! It’s a bit crazy.

I’d consider myself a lover of DIY and crafts yet I don’t make time for it. Well for theses six DIYs I just might.

1. DIY Shibori Designs from Design Sponge

I just love turkish bath towels so how fun would it be to make some with these designs! I just love it.

2. Tissue Paper Watercolor Mug from I SPY DIY

What a fun and budget-friendly project. You can easily find a mug at Target or IKEA on the cheap plus finding fun and colorful tissue paper is this easy.

3. Dip Dyed Valentine’s Day Cards from Poppytalk


This DIY is very timely (like tomorrow timely). Quickly run to Michael’s to pick up some awesome cardstock and dye for this easy DIY!

4. Copper Magazine Stand from ZANA

I wish I understood how to make this one happen (wink, wink). Maybe one day, right?

5. How to Make the Easiest DIY Blanket Ladder (Without Nails or a Hammer) from Paper n Stitch

I love this one and definitely think I’m going to give this one a go. Why? Because it’s straight up EASY!

6. DIY Crepe Paper Peonies from Lia Griffith

I’m obsessed with peonies and as hard as this one would be, I’d love to give it a shot.

Wedding Moodboard // Rustic Love

February 11, 2015

Evergreen trees. Burlap fabric. Sweet tea. All things that are perfect at a rustic themed wedding. This amazing wedding theme pulls major influences from the outdoors and is extremely en vogue right now.

What’s more awesome about the rustic theme concept? It can be done on a budget. Burlap fabric from your local fabric store runs on the cheap. Bunches of babies breath in french flower buckets are both beautiful and understated. Creating a fun wood sign need only white paint, nails, and wood!

Can you tell I love this theme?

16 Fast-Paced Workout Songs to Add to Your Playlist

February 3, 2015

I’m officially on the weight loss train. I know, like everyone, I’m starting in the NEW YEAR. But I’ve spent the last six months gaining all my pre-2011 weight loss back (and then some). I’m totally bummed about it. And now i’m motivated to remove it. I hate shopping in larger sections and I refuse to go back to feeling bad about the way I look again. It’s on!

If I am going to do a high intensity workout, I need fast and motivating tunes. These are some of my favorite right now.
