Bamboo Mirror Makeover

Bamboo Mirror Before & AfterI have a really quick makeover for you guys. As you already know I love me some Craigslist, thrift stores, and yard sales. Let’s face it, I ain’t paying full price for nothing!  Now the downside of me shopping at those places is that the pieces normally require some type of TLC. I have sooooo many projects that I need to get to. This one, however, was reallyContinue Reading

How to Style a Bookshelf or Etagere

Bookshelf Styling1Bookshelves can be used for a plethora of things. They are so functional and purposeful. You can use them to display a collection of your favorite things. They can also be used to display family photos.  I got these from Target that I use to display my heels in my closet room (tour coming soon).

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram then you know that I scored this beautiful vintage étagère on Craigslist for $40! I mean seriously, $40? I immediately Continue Reading

DIY Ampersand Art

DIY Ampersand Art5I have a super simple DIY for you guys! So I’m minding my business, scrolling through Pinterest, when I see this image. How cool, right? It looked pretty easy, so I thought I’d give it a try. I used the ampersand sign because I love the way it looked, but you can also do letters, numbers, whatever you like! I am working on a hashtag art piece for my closet room. This project was so inexpensive and virtually under $3 per piece of art. I purchased the thumb tacks from the Dollar Store for $1 each. The canvas is from Ross. It came in a set of 6 for $6.99.Continue Reading

DIY Striped Clutch


Hey Loves! Happy Hump Day. Did I tell you that I am going on a cruise soon? This will be my very 1st one. I’m beyond  excited!  We’re starting off with a small 4-day cruise in the Bahamas. I’ve always been afraid to go on cruises. I think its because I’m surrounded by so much water, and believe it or not….I can’t swim :(. The waterContinue Reading

Sewing 101 – Disaster

As you all may know, my Sweety bought me a sewing machine for Christmas. It lived in the box for what seems like an eternity. One day, I was brave enough to take it out of its sleeping quarters, and give it a new home on my sewing table. It lived there for a while, untouched. I started watching YouTube tutorials for “beginner sewers”, such as myself. It literally took me an hour to figure out how to thread the needle & the bobbin. After I finally got it all threaded, the machine sat again for a few weeks. So one Saturday, I sat down and played around with stitching.  After much practice, I finally got the hang of it. So you know I thought I was a professional seamstress at this point, right? LOL! Well, I bought this “project dress” below. All I wanted to do was shorten the hem & make me a cute little mini dress. Disaster!
After countless Continue Reading
