10 Fall 2016 Outfits Under $100

Happy first day of fall! I feel like I go through this every year, fall comes and all my clothes from last fall have magically disappeared! I build a new fall wardrobe, then along comes spring and all my spring clothes are gone. It’s just the circle of life I suppose. I’ve notices that one of Pinterest’s most popular searches right now is “Fall outfits”, so I’ve pulled a few of my favorites. In celebration of fall, and in hopes…

DIY No-Slip Bed Sheets

To give you a little peek into my life, my husband and I sleep on a homemade king bed (two twins pushed together) with a king memory foam topper pad. It’s really awesome, except that if we want to cuddle or even just sleep close to one another, someone ends up in the dip between the two beds, otherwise known as the crack. I really don’t mind sleeping in the crack, so it really isn’t too much of a problem.…

How I Color My Titanium Hair

Hey all! So this week while I was going through a few of our remaining moving boxes that are scattered around the house, when I found a few tubes of color that I had left over from doing my sister’s hair. I was going to return them, but I thought I’d do a little hair makeover instead. I wasn’t quite sure how it was going to turn out on me, doing a cool color with my warm roots, but It…

DIY Nursing Pillow Cover

Howdy all! When I was pregnant with Jamie I bought myself a Boppy pillow, and it was one of my best purchases. Even if you don’t plan on breastfeeding, this pillow is awesome to let your little one lay in or even do some tummy time when they’re older. I bought the pillow without a cover because the only options at Target were pink flowers, a yellow jungle theme, or blue whales. Come on Target! Don’t they know baby themes aren’t…

My Favorite Finds: Dinner Recipes

Although Brian and I have been married 18 months, I hardly ever made dinner for us the first year because I was hardly ever home at dinner time and we moved in with my parents for 2 months before coming here to Kentucky for law school, so my fabulous momma would make us dinner. 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…

Best Cowboy Caviar Recipe

Cowboy Caviar, this is one of my favorite dishes! I grew up on this stuff, my dad called it his Texas Salsa and man was it always a hit! When I moved away and got married this was one recipe that, for the life of me, I couldn’t get my hands on. 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…

DIY Leather Choker Wrap Necklace

Well the beloved 90’s chokers are back, and have been for a few months! I’ve got to admit I was slightly behind the trend thinking, “Are those really back?”. But how can you not love them when so many beautiful people like, Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner, look so good in them! 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

When I was in beauty school, we learned a service we called “glitter toes” or “glitter gel toes”. They were all the rage and are still very popular. When I learned them, I literally thought to myself “That’s it?”. They were so easy! I immediately went out to buy the supplies so I could do them on myself at home. Who doesn’t want glittery toes? 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.…
