DIY Boho Wall Art

February 9, 2016

I’m kind of loving my cheap decor DIY projects lately. Have you guys seen all the adorable yarn and macramè wall hangings? You know the type. They are all beautiful and minimalist and Urban Outfitters names them something dramatic like “Vintage Textile String Art” or whatever. Anyway. I scoured the Pinterest and looked at about a hundred articles and photos for inspiration on what I was looking for. I combined all the ideas together and came up with a piece…

The Miracle Hair Treatment (That You Have in Your Pantry)

January 25, 2016

That title MAY be a tad dramatic. However, I AM impressed with the results of my most recent hair care experiment. First, lemme whine for a second. My hair is at an all time low. Right now I have a perfect storm of hair issues. First of all, it’s winter and my already dry hair is even dryer. My scalp itches and is flaky because of the dryness. It’s the worst. On top of that, postpartum hair loss has rudely…

Last Minute Tablescape

December 1, 2015

It’s the holidays and I love entertaining. Like, I LOVE ENTERTAINING. If I could afford to throw parties all the time I would in a second. I must get that from my Grandma Mullis. The only problem besides the cost incurred with parties is time. Where, oh where does a Mom of two find time to prepare for a dinner party? Answer: she doesn’t. Last week my Dad was in town but wouldn’t be able to stay through Thanksgiving, so…

DIY Retro Edison Lamp

November 30, 2015

If it was up to me, the inside of my home would look like it came out of a Restoration Hardware catalog. I love rustic, industrial chic everything. One trend I’m totally smitten with is vintage lighting and “Edison Lamps”. Stores like Pottery Barn, World Market and others have so many varieties of this concept. This one is an example of one of the table lamps that West Elm has right now. Basically, the lamps are designed where the bulb…

DIY Family Photo Shoot

November 23, 2015

This holiday season is going to be especially tight, financially. We just had a baby, have tons of hospital bills rolling in, and we have made the decision for me to only go back to work a couple of days a month so that I can be home with the kids. Essentially, we are now a one income family! ALL the expenses that come with the holidays are going to be a bit of a challenge for us, but not…

DIY: Blanket Scarf

November 11, 2015

If you look around, you can see that oversized scarves are very trendy right now like they were last year. I’ve had my eye out for the perfect one, but no luck so far. I decided to check out the fabric store and just *see* if they had any cute flannel/brushed cotton that I could potentially turn into a scarf! Well. They did. And let me tell ya. This is probably the easiest fashion DIY ever. The first one I…

DIY Old Ladder Shelf

November 7, 2015

I found this great antique ladder a few years ago when I was living in Iowa. I had been on the hunt for one that didn’t break the bank, so I got lucky when I found this seven footer for only $50. I have always struggled with thinking of a creative way to incorporate it into my decor. I have experimented with hanging my scarves on it in my bedroom, (which was actually cute, but I have more scarves than…

DIY Himalayan Salt Lamp

November 3, 2015

You’ve probably heard of the Himalayan Salt Lamps. Having one in your home has many awesome benefits including removing negative ions from the air and easing respiratory symptoms by cleaning the air. Here is a great article that lists benefits and explains how it works. I have been wanting to add one to my home, but unsure about the visual aesthetic of a giant glowing pink rock with my decor (which is currently vintage/industrial/rustic).…
