DIY: Thrifted Office Desk Makeover

I love taking a well-loved beaten piece of furniture and turn it into something sort of fabulous. My desk in the home office was transformed a very long time ago (almost a year now) so this post is way way overdue! My office is still a work in progress although most of the major work … More DIY: Thrifted Office Desk Makeover

Half-Wilted

Isn’t just painful that you spend so much money on fresh flowers and they barely last for a week? I don’t care where  you get your blooms; we all face the same problem. Once they begin to wilt, the water starts to smell like mildew so the next logical step is to toss them out, … More Half-Wilted

DIY: Tea Space

Our home renovation is going s l o w l yyyyy, but who can blame us? We have a 5 month old infant and a toddler who’s as energetic as ever. There’s literally no time in the day for any type of extracurricular activities whatsoever. Kids and work take up 99.9% of our time. Outside, we … More DIY: Tea Space

DIY RAINCLOUD MOBILE

I’ve been lacking so much sleep, it’s insane. Axel’s been waking up every 1.5-2 hrs at night. Each time he brutally wakes me up, I swear I would nap during the day to make up for the lost sleep. However, when morning comes I’m as energetic as ever. Napping?! Nah– it’s for the weak folks.  … More DIY RAINCLOUD MOBILE

Nightstand Makeover

I’ve always had a thing for thrifted items, particularly furniture pieces. You never know what gems you’ll find. Yes, it takes a little work to turn these loved treasures into something spectacular but it’s well worth the effort. Seven months ago, we bought a pair of nightstand for $20 (!) a piece. After some sanding … More Nightstand Makeover

DIY Gold Chevron Vase

It’s known to mankind (aka the husband) that I hoard unnecessary random objects. To me they are absolutely NOT unnecessary. My motto has always been “You NEVER know when you might need them!” and I’m still standing behind this ideology. In our relationship, I’m ALWAYS right. For instance, I like to keep empty glass bottles. … More DIY Gold Chevron Vase

DIY Photobooth Room

My sister’s wedding was full of DIY’s. One of the most unique ones was the Photobooth Room. Frames were created by the Bride&Groom and implemented by us. My sister’s fiance (at the time) cut out a polaroid frame using a Styrofoam board. Due to its lightweight, we were able to string it from the ceiling … More DIY Photobooth Room

PARIS, A Gift!

I think that one of the most rewarding things in life is being able to shower your loved ones with gifts. I’m not talking materialistic things here but rather gifts that would last in memory for a lifetime. Perhaps like giving a trip to Paris? My oldest sister did just that. She gave my newly … More PARIS, A Gift!

The Bride

So many pictures to sift through…where to even begin? I think starting with The Bride seems to make the most sense. Here are some images of my sister as she was getting ready. Gorgeous and classy but yet so spunky (wait ’til you see her heels!). Our oldest sister helped her put on her veil … More The Bride
