DIY Cute Minion & Emoji Easter Eggs

Emoji-Minion-eggs

Hey guys! Regardless if you celebrate Easter or not this is a fun and quick DIY for all who simply want to put a smile on someone’s face. If you follow me then you probably already know, but I love using emojis and I use them all the time. Previously, I did an Emoji Pillow tutorial on which you can find here, but I thought that I could also use emojis to decorate eggs! I also think the Minions from Despicable Me are so cute. I’m excited for the upcoming Minion movie.

This Easter DIY is perfect for everyone in the family to do at the same time! You can do this with hardboiled eggs as well, but if you are Vegetarian of Vegan, no worries, you can use plastic eggs! This is also perfect as an after Easter Egg hunt activity to do after taking the treats out of all the plastic eggs!

Warm & Neutral

I was feeling super lazy today.  Eric and I had a afternoon meeting.  It was one of those days where you just don’t want to do your hair or take time to draw in your eyeliners.  I was cold and felt like staying in bed a little longer.  When Eric reminded me of the meeting, I had to drag my laziness to the closet.  Lazy day outfit consist of a cozy oversized sweater and coat.  The leather pants and heel booties was to break from looking overly frumpy. What is your out of bed outfit?

On A Red Coat Mission

back-1

walk-1back As I’m sitting here writing to you this post, it’s in the 80’s outside.  Anyhow, I must say the day I wore this coat out, it was actually the coldest it’s been in SoCal.

 I have been crushing over everything Red this winter.  Did you know it’s also the color of the year?  I actually never liked red.  In fact, I despised it. My reasons: One – it looked old on me, two – it is a very bold and passionate color, and three it was too popping for my personal style.  However this time around, I find it to make me look lively and cheerful.

I was a little late on the game this winter of finding a good red coat.  I think I have searched every single website on google.  All the red coats I liked were of course sold out.  When I saw this particular style, I knew I must have it. However, the site I found it on was sold out in my size.  Therefore I went on a worldwide search for the particular brand (Sisley) and style.  Luckily, I was able to find it! If there’s a will, there is a way ;)

Doggie DIY | Mini Pet Bed

Header

Ever since I introduced Harley, our little rescue poof, you guys have been requesting a doggy DIY! This new tutorial is perfect for all the small breed pet lovers, but if you like large pets, don’t worry, I have a DIY planned for you soon!

Harley loves to find weird places to sleep in the house. He likes to lie down on the stairs and he blends in so well with the carpet that I end up stepping on him or tripping over him! He now loves to sleep in his new doggie bed and it keeps him off the stairs, which is safer for the both of us. I used pet safe craft paint and bedding. I found a similar DIY in a book and knew that it would be perfect for Harley and my Shiners!

California Winter | Striped, OTK & Duster Coat

walk-1

Hi Everyone! Long time no style post.  After talking to my family over in Massachusetts, I must say I have no regrets moving to SoCal.  I can still remember those winter days dressed in piles of layers and feeling like a snowman.  I’m the kind of person that gets cold easily, feels cold every second, and always need a sweater with me.

Today I decided to take my new boots for a walk.  What do you think? I’ve been searching for a pair of nicely fitted over the knee black boots.  I’ve searched and searched and finally found these Stuart Weitzman.  They fit nicely around my thighs. The quality is nicely executed and the overall size, height are right on. They are over my ideal spending budget but I must say , they are worth it!  I can believe how comfortable they feel and easy they are to walk in.

What I wore:

Striped Dress http://bit.ly/1F32ot0

Urban Outfitters Duster Coat http://bit.ly/1CX9ekd
