Take the Plunge: The Coolest Summer Swimsuits

Take the Plunge: The Coolest Summer Swimsuits #swimsuit #summer #swimwear

I’m headed to the beach at the end of the week and could not be more excited for a tropical vacation. It’s our first real vacation since Hayes was born and I fully plan to live it up. But before ?I get ahead of myself own vacation plans, I need a swimsuit…or two!

I did a little window shopping…and rounded up 47 of my favorite swimsuits for the beach (or the pool). One pieces, bikinis, solid colors, patterns – the works!

Mother’s Day DIY to Try: Iron-On Decals for Purses, Pouches and More + A Cricut Maker Giveaway

Mother's Day DIY to Try: Iron-On Decals for Purses, Pouches and More. #mothersday #diy #diygift #diydecal #diypurse #patternonpattern #patternbag

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

If you’ve been around here for a hot minute or more, you know that I really, really love DIYs. But did you also know that I’m obsessed with discovering new craft tools that I haven’t used before? I’m like a kid in a candy store, who has to try the newest flavor. And today’s flavor is really tasty!

After making DIY ornaments last year with my Cricut Maker, I was curious to see what else I could do. Hint: SO many things. So, I tried out the Cricut EasyPress 2, alongside my Cricut Maker, and ooooohhhh…I am hooked. When I say I literally cannot stop using this thing, I mean it! I did some iron-on designs for purses, wallets, keychains, and more. Everything you see in that photo above!

And since my very first Mother’s Day is creeping up quick AND these iron-on ideas happen to make perfect gifts, I wanted to share the results to inspire you to make your own gifts for mom. Or yourself! Click through to see everything I made, download the (free) design files to make your own, AND enter to win a Cricut Maker for you and one for your mom!

Easter DIY to Try: Rothko Inspired Easter Eggs

Easter DIY to Try: Rothko Inspired Easter Eggs. Click through for the tutorial (surprise - there's no paint involved). #easter #eastereggs #diy

Taking it back to my art school days with today’s DIY! When I was in college, I was obsessed with the work of abstract expressionists, which eventually led me to color field painting (where I got my love for color palettes). And one of the artists that inspired me most in school (as cliche as it may have been), Mark Rothko, is who today’s Easter egg DIY is inspired by.

These Rothko Easter eggs involve layers of color (similar to color field paintings that often have many many layers), but are still very easy to make. Click through to see how they’re done. Surprise… there’s no paint involved, whatsoever!

Farmhouse Bleak to Modern Chic: How I Made Over My Awkward Landing Area for Less Than $450

Farmhouse Bleak to Modern Chic: How I Made Over My Awkward Landing Area for $450

If you follow along on Instagram, you may have already seen my staircase a time or two. BUT one area I never really share is the little space opposite the staircase that has always been kind of awkward…until now!

I finally got some motivation to finish up that once forgotten space. It looks completely different now and I am LOVING it. But the best part is that everything I did to transform this space is completely renter friendly – from cleverly covering up a pretty big eyesore to switching out light fixtures and using removable wallpaper from Target! Click through for the full breakdown AND the before photos (which you are DEFINITELY going to want to see).
