8 DIYs to Try This Weekend #weekendprojects #diy #diyideas

Happy Friday! This weekend I am super busy because (surprise) we’re moving! Actually, the movers are already here and loading up the truck – we’re officially moving into our new place TODAY! I’ll share all the details soon, but for now, I’m just super excited to be getting into a new place…with more space to spread out (and a whole lot of rooms to decorate). I’ll try to share some behind the scenes stuff today on stories, if you want to follow along.

So, with all of this going on over the weekend, I probably won’t be getting around to any DIY projects this weekend (unless you count unpacking boxes). BUT I rounded up a handful of my faves for you anyway, just in case you’re in the mood for a do-it-yourself project or two. Click through for 8 DIYs you should totally try this weekend!

Get in vacation mode with a Grapefruit Cucumber Gin Cooler. Check out the full recipe to make your own. #cocktails #gin #grapefruit #cucumber

Once April hits, my mind goes immediately to tropical vacations – sipping on some fancy cocktail with my toes in the sand. BUT a beach vacay isn’t always in the cards (or budget), so today I have a cocktail recipe that might be the next best thing… A drink that will make you feel like you feel like you’re on vacation without the hit to your wallet.

The tart grapefruit paired with chilling cucumber should probably come with a pair of sunglasses, but for now I’ll just take a few  grapefruit slices and a cucumber ribbon.
