Now that we are here. so very far away from our families, I decided it was finally my time to make dinners; how domestic of me. Unfortunately I…

I would ask my dad for his recipe, and his response would always be, “It’s on the internet” or “I found it on Facebook”. Nice try dad but…

While I‘ve seen the tattoo choker make a roaring comeback, the wraps and bolo chokers are also all the rage right now. I was on Pinterest, like always,…

Glitter Gel Nails Tutorial

While doing my toes one day I had the thought to also do my fingers.  From…

How I Got All My Wedding Flowers Under $700

When Brian and I decided to get married, we also decided we were not going to go into debt ourselves or empty our parents wallets on the wedding. Being young college students with practically no money, resulted in me being my own wedding planner, and many do-it-yourself projects. When it came to my flowers I knew what I wanted and didn’t want to settle. I searched out the best floral designer around and saw her starting price of over $3k.…

DIY Bandana Bib

I received a few of these handkerchief style bibs at my baby shower in April, and they have proved to be very useful.

What I Use to Balayage My Own Hair

Growing up my mom told me that I could do whatever I wanted to my hair!… If I paid for it. Unfortunately, the salon isn’t cheap and I never had enough money to get the blue or purple hair I wanted (thank goodness).
