Closet Revamp

It took me a few months to get on it, but redesigning the accessories closet got me pumped up to organize the neighboring room. First stop? My beloved IKEA where we scored this shelf drawer (that I just placed over the already existing shelf) for storing shorts and underwear and a super cute box set for you know, classically hiding junk.

Out with the plastic, in with the wooden hangers.

I had every intention to diy embellished mirrors but grabbing these from Art Effect was far less challenging and more practical.

Candle holders at the store, watch + bracelet solution in my closet. This candle dish will make a great jewelry-mess container when the number of bangles outgrows the candle holders capacity. Like tomorrow.

Inherited vintage tea cups also turned charming ring holders. Repurposing: cheers!

It’s easier to spot and prioritize the must-wear shoes of the season if they have their own little space, featured next to the other equally seasonal pieces in my wardrobe.

On the wall, a personalized diy sillhouette (call me vain but yeah it’s my profile) and framed song lyrics written by me.

It’s the way I found to insert sentiment onto an otherwise plain white wall and come to closure with my closet clean mission. Anyone else refreshing their walk-ins?

 

Easter Centerpiece


You all know how I like to decorate ahead of time, and although I will not go all out like I did for Halloween and  Christmas, Easter deserves a little attention too.  This centerpiece is ridiculously easy and very quick to make, however  the mushrooms won’t last over a day so you’ll either have to replace it or just make it when you’ll need it (Easter Sunday?) You’ll need:



  •  A vase (big, medium, small. It’s up to you)
  •   Styrofoam ( I used a sphere)
  •   Mushrooms (with stem)
  •   Toothpicks
  •   Paper (any kind that you can crumple)
  •   Preserved sheet moss (or real, you’re the boss)
  •   Optional: jelly belly eggs

Paper first

Foam second

Cover the top with the moss sheet.

Choose a good mushroom and stick the end with a toothpick

Stick the other point in the moss, through the foam underneath.



Now, you could be done! But if you wanna make your centerpiece scream Easter, you gotta take the prior step again, this time with jelly belly Easter eggs.

I think this took me five minutes from start to finish (not counting the last minute run to Walgreens to get jelly bellys).

Half Updo

After we shot the last outfit you saw here, I came upstairs and decided to film a quick how to video for the half updo. It’s the simplest hairdo ever, but just in case you were curious to see how I did it (or in case you’ve terribly missed my head-turn), here’s a step-by-step:
