How to Give Yourself an A-Line Bob

How to give yourself a bob

I’ve been wanting a haircut for some time. The truth is: I’ve been needing a haircut for some time, but I couldn’t muster the gumption to walk into a salon and have it done because I am experiencing a big psoriasis flare up on the back of my neck that is not really the kind of thing I want to make a stylist stare at

DIY: Sugar Skull Milk Jug

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with the California Milk Processor Board and DiMe Media. However, all opinions expressed are my own. Milk is kind of a staple in our home. It’s one of those things that we make sure we are never out of and we go through it pretty quickly because we have milk drinkin’ kids. Most of the time we recycle

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with DiMe Media and Pampers. All opinions are 100% mine. Do you see that personalized branded leather bracelet I’m sporting in the picture above? I’m in love with it! I’ve always loved decorated leather bracelets, but what makes this one super special is that if you look right in the center it says “mamá” in my eldest daughter’s

Hola, Cariños! I hope you had an eggcellent Easter. If you celebrated with children, you may find yourself up to your elbows in plastic Easter egg carcasses.

Easter is just around the corner and honestly it’s not really a holiday I do much decorating for except, of course, for dying Easter eggs with a homemade mixture of vinegar and food coloring, but usually we do that right around Easter Sunday. Well, this weekend my girls were jonesing for some kind of a craft and I thought lets decorate eggs without eggs because

Personalized Valentine's Day Chocolate Boxes

This cute little DIY monogrammed Valentine’s Day chocolate box is for my eldest daughter’s teacher. As I was picking up cards for my daughter to give out to her classmates, I grabbed a rather generic looking box of chocolates for the teacher because teachers deserve mucho love and appreciation.

I have been wanting to make a chicken wire frame for eons, but there is one thing that has kept me from making one and it’s that I’m CHEAP. Yup, it’s true, I’m a cheapskate. I had to wait until I found the perfect sized preferably free frame somewhere, a big one, one big enough to look substantial over the mantle in my living room.

DIY: Monogrammed Tile Coasters

I can’t believe I actually made these monogrammed tile coasters because my entire grown up life, I have shunned coasters. Perhaps it’s because I never cared if my furniture got rings on it or because the coasters I had seemed useless or ugly. My husband, however, has been nagging me to make coasters out of tiles for quite some time and I guess I’m starting
