I’m not really into super complicated hair tutorials that look cool but take FOREVER to recreate. Figuring out what to wear in the morning and doing my makeup is hard enough. I am, however, very into hair tutorials that look complicated and cool BUT are actually really quick and easy! And maybe you are too?
So, I teamed up with Rogaine to bring you a hair tutorial that totally fits the bill. What I love most about this effortless updo is that while it looks complicated, it’s actually SUPER easy to pin up and can be worn day or night for a casual cool vibe, anytime.
I’ve whined talked about finding the perfect coffee table plenty of times here before, and I’m 99% sure at least a few of you felt my pain.
It’s HARD to find a coffee table that 1) fits your style AND price range 2) works with the couch / seating area you already have. So, I put together a whole bunch of coffee tables that I really, really love (in different styles, so you can find one that works for you). And they’re all under $1,000 (in fact, more than half of them are under $500!).
I’m running around this weekend trying to get some things in order for a makeover I’m finishing up next week. And I might pop back into the studio to work on a DIY project that I’ve been meaning to finish up as well. We’ll see how motivated I’m feeling tomorrow.
What are your plans for the weekend? Anything DIY related? If so, I have a handful of projects for you. Here are 6 DIYs you should totally try this weekend…
It wasn’t very long ago that I shared my kitchen update at the studio, but I think I’m about to start work on it again. Very soon.
Wait, what?! Well, the kitchen project was always a temporary fix to a larger cosmetic problem. And things are coming together for a bigger (more complete) remodel faster than I thought they would, now that I’ve spoken with a contractor, etc. NO TURNING BACK NOW. Well, I guess I can probably still turn back if the quote is crazy high, but I’m pretty excited / motivated to move forward. So, we’ll see.
To celebrate a new chapter in this interesting little kitchen journey that I seem to have us all, I’ve put together a bunch of inspiration for the new, NEW studio kitchen reno today. There’s a lot I want to do, but the plan is to keep what I can salvage (appliances and base cabinets), demo the things that have been driving me crazy, and upgrade the rest.
But the thing that I’m most excited about with all the changes is…
I feel like a total pillow pusher right now because I’m itching for some new pillows at the studio and our apartment. Pillows are like a good pair of shoes. They can make or break the look and you can never have too many. I’ve also heard people say they’re like a pair of earrings…but for your couch. Not a bad analogy.
Anyway, if you’re looking for a budget-friendly upgrade for a seating area, a few new pillows will most likely do the trick. It’s a lot cheaper (and easier) than buying a brand new couch! But if you do happen to need a couch, I rounded up all of my budget-friendly faves right here: the coolest couches under $1,000. #shamelessplug

I don’t know anyone who couldn’t use a little color in their mailbox, amidst all the sad AF white envelopes (bills) and brown kraft paper packages. Boo. So, this tutorial is for all of us who could use a pick-me-up in the mail!
These painted DIY envelopes would be a playful option for wedding invitations, save the dates, birthday parties, housewarmings, thank you cards, etc, etc. And I’m showing you how to make ’em, from start to finish today (the start being a completely blank piece of paper).

With all of the flower DIYs I’ve done over the years, I’ve noticed that I tend to gravitate towards a handful of flowers for almost every bouquet, centerpiece, floral DIY, etc. It’s like I’ve developed a shorthand for it almost – like the quickest path to a beautiful arrangement involves XYZ.
So, I thought it might be useful to put together a flower list that will pretty much guarantee you a good looking floral arrangement every time. It’s my go-to list of fave flowers to use!
