One of my favorite things about DIY projects is that you can make things that look a lot more expensive than they are. I have been eyeing some marble and brass shelving online for a small nook in our bathroom, but they were a bit too pricey (especially when I was wanting a two shelf situation), so I thought I would MacGyver up a situation of my own instead! The... Continue »

I think you tend to learn most of your main cooking and cleaning habits from whatever you saw your parents do (or not do) growing up. While I have been trying to make a lot of healthy changes in my life in recent years and opt for more nontoxic options, I never really relied on some of the more harsher chemicals to clean my house, and I'm pretty sure that's...

In summer I like my hair to be as fuss-free as possible. On hot days, I want to go swimming, and taking ages to blow dry my hair afterwards seems like a waste of time. Instead I've found a few braids I can make with wet hair that look pretty but take next to no time. My favorite by far is the twisted crown braid. Crown braids are so lovely... Continue »

Hey, friends! Let's talk about a subject we are very passionate about... tacos! Now, I love myself a fish taco, and I had a falafel taco recently that was life changing. In a serious/romantic moment, I even asked Jeremy if we could become "taco people" together. He, of course, accepted. I'm joking a little, but mostly serious. Recently we drove across town to try a random bar that looked cute... Continue »

Don't know about you, but I'm so ready for 2016 to be finished. Sorry, it's just true. Kimberly Harrington wrote an excellent article for medium.com a few days ago and it's now one of my favorites. Because it hits the... Continue »

If I could make a housewarming gift for everyone I knew, this would be it. Seriously, you should probably just go ahead and move this month in case I run out of this fabric. I came up with this pineapple oven mitt design after realizing how perfect the shape would be for such an item, and I just knew a few of you might be feeling brave enough to dust... Continue »

I look back at 2015 and think of it the way one thinks of a particularly bad bout of food poisoning - there's a point when the vomiting stops and although you feel like a truck ran over you and... Continue »

Lately I keep thinking about how our skin is our body's largest organ, and I've been trying to take better care of that department than I have up until now (never too late to start, right?). In addition to trying the basics of skin care, like drinking more water, etc., I've also been looking around for months and months to find beauty products that do a really good job while...

This week I had no idea what I wanted to write. It is not like I didn’t have something to say but with everything going on (killing of two black young men and 5 cops in Dallas and today an attack in Nice, France with over 75 people dead), I’m at loss for words. I found this quote from the Purpose Driven Life site and I felt that these words made more sense than anything else I could say. So in a world of uncertainty and chaos take comfort; “You are as close to God as You choose to Be.”... Continue »

I had a lot of fun working on this recipe. It's really unique. I've shared a lot of sweet margaritas here (like watermelon, cranberry orange, peach and coconut). This recipe is on the less sweet side. Still lightly sweet, but not nearly as much as the others. I'd put it more in line with the cucumber margarita. Light and very fresh! Plus, you have to give it bonus points for... Continue »

Let's face it - most of you don't operate in an environment that can be categorized as a "Best Place to Work"... We like to think all of our cultures are unique for the right reasons, and without question, some... Continue »
