Lately I've been feeling a little bit DIY'ish. It's just been extremely frustrating because I haven't had the time to actually do any projects. Again this weekend I'm going to be gone majority of the time, but I'm hoping to squeeze in some creative time on Sunday.

Here are some of the things I've been pinning...

Super cute bracelet actually made from scarves and gold chains

Fabric TuTu for my daughter

I'm working on a painting similar to this now for my staircase

Want to make for my daughters room, maybe add a bit more color

Perfect silver art for my new bedroom decor

Using up old wine bottles, easy to change out with the seasons

I can't wait to get started on all my projects, these aren't even close to all of Pictures and tutorials to come with each one.
Goal for the weekend---finish my painting for the stairway!

Want to share any DIY projects? Post a link in your comments below.


  1. I LOVE that bracelet!! And that tutu...oh to be three-years-old again...I would wear that everywhere. I was just thinking last night that I need some good DIY projects. Where I live (in DC) they actually charge you for grocery bags, so I thought it might be about time for me to sew some stylish reusable shopping bags. Looks like I should just put that first up on the list! Hope you have a great weekend :) All the Best, MademoiselleMichael

    1. Yes I'm actually looking for some old thrifted scarves to make the bracelet, I just love it. And let me know if you find any stylish bag DIY's. Here in Italy they charge as well for shopping bags.

  2. LOVE all of these! The wine bottles in white are a great idea

E.L.F. Cosmetic Brushes...Fave or Fail?

Admittedly I've been using the same Mary Kay makeup brushes for a while now, along with a few other random brands thrown in. I was just satisfied with my MK brushes because they washed well and have help up for a really long time. But it was definitely time for a whole new set and I had trouble making up my mind on which makeup brushes to try. At first my plan was to snag a few from different companies to see what I liked best, but then E.L.F. Cosmetics had a 50% off sale with free shipping over $35. Naturally I had to give it a shot since I was getting so much bang for my buck. I already knew that I wasn't too fond of their cheaper $1 brushes so I opted for the Studio Line which ranges from $3-$10 and I'd heard great reviews. All together I got 15 brushes (1 didn't make it to the picture) for only $37, definitely a steal! Keep reading to find out if it was worth it. 

 I am extremely pleased with these E.L.F makeup brushes. The only one that I'm not too fond of woul…

Gracelynn Rose Designs & GIVEAWAY

Today I'm very excited to introduce everyone to Gracelynn Rose Designs! The owner, Stephanie, is one of my closest and dearest friends that I consider more of a sister. The first time we met it was instant friendship, now we've known each other for 5 years. Even though we're currently thousands of miles apart it's as if we never left.

Stephanie has been designing her own jewelry since 2001 and selling it to customers along with a few stores. Each design is her own, delicately handcrafted, and unique. She did an entire jewelry line based on Twilight (which of course I loved every piece) that was so beautiful AND she sold a line of pearl & crystal bracelets to David's Bridal and those were stunning.

For my birthday Stephanie sent me a pair of earrings in the mail and I fell in love with them and wear them every chance I get. Might I add that they are 1 of a kind, not another pair like them...

It's obvious that my girl is super talented and I'm so proud of h…

IPSY: December Glam Bag Review

I will be reviewing the products I received in my December Ipsy bag since I've had the chance to test them out for about a month now. If you don't know already here's the spill. Instead of doing an "unboxing" type of post, I review the products over the course of a month and then let you know what I thought and all the product details. If you didn't see my November bag review you can check it out HERE.

   This post is a bit late, but we'll be getting back on track for February.
   Here's what I received in my December Ipsy Bag...

1). December's Glam Bag- Not going to lie, this month's bag was a disappointment for sure; it felt cheap, was flimsy, and the zipper was in a weird spot. I will probably end up giving it to my daughter to keep her play makeup in.

2). NYX Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet- Retails for $4.00 (this is the full size)
   I'm not a big tinted lip balm fan, I'd rather just wear a lipstick. This is the first NYX balm I…
