Hi lovelies! I have been wanting to make this clear purse since last year but I never had the chance to. I have seen these purses sold online for over $40 and though to myself, I could make this! This is a super chic trend that allows you to further accessorize your outfit with the stuff in your purse. I love the ability to show off the colorful items in my purse Now keep in mind, some may think that this makes you a target for theft, but that’s ridiculous as it is always down to the street smarts of the person, not the items in your purse. This is also a handy DIY for those of you that work in government jobs where clear purses are required for security.
This DIY is pretty easy to do. I spent a few hours perfecting the pattern to make sure it is easy to do for a weekend project! Let’s get started! (more…)
Today we are going to make cute flower throw pillows! This is a super easy, no sew project to put some summer in your home décor! I was inspired to make this from an etsy seller. Her link is below if you are not feeling crafty. The materials needed are very inexpensive and with some creative use of color, you can really put a pop of color into your home or room! Ok, lets get started, shall we?
I have been seeing so many cute and interestingly designed box clutches out in the market. So many designers came out with elegant to artistic boxy clutch styles that looked so fun to recreate. It is pretty tough for me to justify spending a lot of money for a clutch that I would only use for a special event though. I wondered if I could just DIY one myself. I have a tendency to collect pretty boxes ( jars too!) and when I see a good and quality one, I like to keep it for when I have a DIY idea in mind.
Today’s project you will need…
Hello Again! Are you guys ready to play with some clay today? Today we are making cute and colorful bow rings and a mustache ring and necklace combo.

Knife (plastic will do) and something to roll the clay.

So the other day I had an insatiable craving for some oatmeal cookies. Whenever I’m in the baking mood, I would just look for vegan recipes online and then change it around to my liking. I’m not a full time vegan however I prefer dairy free foods. I came across a couple recipes online but found them too fancy and complicated. I took a little here and there from each recipe and then came up with my very own version. Turns out my version is perfect and delicious!!! I must say these are the best oatmeal cookies I have ever made. This was all made while I was watching the Oscars. I give myself a standing ovation. I would like to thank the academy….

I feel like I just came back from the dead. These past few weeks have been the gloomiest days of my life. Living in New England, I developed aversion toward winter. In the last week, we got hit by a gigantic storm “NEMO” with over two feet of snow! To top it off, I caught my son’s flu and was out sick for almost 2 weeks! Not fun at all. It was the most depressing 2 weeks I can think of. Urgh..!
I am just ecstatic that is all done and over with. On a positive note, I have this fun DIY project for those crazy candle collectors like myself here! Every time there is a Bath & Body Works sale, I stock up! Every night is a new scent for me. Burning a candle can be therapeutic and very calming; that is why I love candles so much. If you are like me, you probably have a bunch of used up glass candle jars in the closet. So what to do when you’re finish burning them? Here are some awesome ideas below!

So here’s a new sweet Valentine’s DIY for you. Today we are making a deep moisturizing whipped body butter cream! While I was making this, my whole house smells like butter frosting. I find it quite satisfying to smell something so yummy without the guilt of actually eating it.
This is a recipe I have been using on my dry feet, elbows, and legs. It’s natural, light weight, stays moisturized, without feeling icky like my Burt’s Bee foot mask. I used this on my feet every night. This recipe is super simple to makeand consists of all natural ingredients (minus the butter crème scent). The best part about this Do-it-yourself, is that you get to control what’s in your moisturizer.
So let’s get started shall we?
If you have any empty candle containers, here’s a great way to recycle them. You can also find cute containers in craft stores like Michaels.
For utensils, you will need: Blender, mixing bowl, large pyrex cup, and table spoon
The Basic ingredients to this easy recipe are natural butters and oils.
Organic Mango, Shea, Almond, and cocoa butters are some of my favorites to use. They carry many great beneficial properties. These butters & oils can help fade away scars, and renew, repair, and heal other skin irritations. Some of these butters are also naturally packed with Vitamin E, which helps restores the skin to feeling and looking a lot smoother. Some of my favorite raw organic oils to use are Coconut, Jojoba, sweet almond, and extra virgin olive oils.
All Butters were purchased online and cost me around $25.00 total. I was able to make many massage bars and 5 jars of this moisturizer.

Sorry for this late post guys. Eric usually helps me with my blog posting so I can handle things on the youtube side, however February is always a super busy month for us. He runs a Accountant/financial business on the side and right around now is peak season. I used you help him manage the business. Now that my blog and youtube channel has been picking up momentum, I can invest my time into something I actually enjoyed.
With that being said, I have a cute home decorating tutorial for you! We will be making cute Flower hearts and a easy twisty pillowcase. So lets get started with this!
Materials: 1 yard of felt and fabric or glue gun.
Step 1: Cut out 5 x 5 squares, you can actually make these any size. I’ve made my flowers big and small.
