Revamping A Lamp Using Spray Paint & Book Pages

Hello friends!

A few changes are going on around here. In our sitting area and entry way to be exact. And although, I won't be sharing the changes in our entry way yet, I'm excited to show you my newest addition to our little sitting area: this REVAMPED LAMP USING SPRAY PAINT AND BOOK PAGES!

That's right, people. Book pages. You know those things people normally read? Well, I've been busy tearing them up these days. 

It all started with my Book Page Wreath- and I can tell you this, it's not over. Maybe I should of started a Crafting With Book Pages series?

Too late. The ball has officially been rolled.

The Easiest Book Page Wreath Ever!

Hello friends!

How many book lovers are in the house?

Well...you're either going to love me for showing you a really cool way of incorporating book pages in your home or you're going to hate me for destroying a book in the process.

Yeah...it sort of had to be done.

But maybe looking at this fabulous BOOK PAGE WREATH will pacify you...maybe...hopefully.


And gorgeous it is!

Easy Fall Decor: Hanging Gold Leaves Art

Hello friends!

I know it's been officially Fall for a couple weeks now, but Fall weather has yet to hit my neck of the woods (central California) so my fix for this dilemma is crafting my way into Fall decor.

You see, this is actually the very first year I've decorated my home or Fall. I know..gasp, right? And by decorated, I mean a few pumpkins, a whole lot of acorns, my Fall Burlap Banner, a cute DIY Mini Cloche and a Fall centerpiece on our dinning table (coming to the blog soon).

But hey, you gotta start somewhere, right?

The newest addition to my Fall decor collection?

This HANGING GOLD LEAVES ART that was free and just sort of happened while playing outdoors with my daughter.

How To Make ANY Lipstick Long Lasting {and my favorite Fall makeup look}

Wow..look at me keeping up with my beauty related posts! 

In the midst of all the Fall decorating, crafting and just being a mommy, it sure is nice to gab beauty with all my beauty loving peeps.

In case you haven't been up to date with what's been going on in my "beauty world", I've discovered a Skin Regimen For My Sensitive Acne Prone Skin, spilled the beans on How Grapeseed Oil Saved My Skin and today my friends, I am going to show you HOW YOU CAN MAKE ANY LIPSTICK LONG LASTING!

Because I know every lipstick loving gal owns a lipstick shade they just adore  and they'd wish it stay put longer on the kisser. Or is it just me?

Mini Cloche with Pedestal Base {made by repurposing items}

Hello there!

By the time this goes live it will officially be Fall!!! I've been on a roll scheduling my posts in advanced. Sometimes I get in these modes where I just want to edit photos and write which is a lot of fun!


I am so excited to finally share this DIY MINI CLOCHE WITH PEDESTAL BASE I made with repurposed items. To say I love this little guy is an understatement. I adore it! I mean, look at it...it's darling!

And the fact that this new fabulous piece of fall decor was made at the spur of the moment with things I had around the house is just awesome.

Anytime I can get crafty without having to go to the store is a good day for me.

DIY: Trash Bag Roller {a smart 'space saver' solution}

Guys. Girls. Whoever happens to be reading this...

You are about to have a "why didn't I think of that" moment.

Today's post is going to completely change your space saving game.

From this day forward you are going to love taking out the trash.

Okay, so I'm over exaggerating, but seriously this super easy DIY TRASH BAG ROLLER has definitely made changing our trash bags a whole lot funner! And funner is essential when we're talking about throwing out the trash, you know.

I saw this on Pinterest last year and finally got around to installing the trash bag roller in my laundry room this March. 

And yes, that means it took me 6 months for it to make it on my blog. What can I say? "Totally-has-it-together blogger" in the house.

Using Grapeseed Oil as a Night Serum {And How It Saved My Skin}

Please know that I am not an expert when it comes to skin. The opinions expressed are just my personal experience. I obviously have had a positive experience using grapeseed oil but there are also those who have not. Use at your own discretion.

Hello friends!

As you know I am super excited to finally be writing this post and sharing why I love GRAPESEED OIL so much!

Last week, I shared with you my Sensitive Acne Prone Skin Journey & Regimen and I mentioned how I USE GRAPESEED OIL AS A NIGHT SERUM.

I wanted to use the grapeseed oil for a good amount of time before I opened up my pie hole in excitement. Lots of self-control was exercised for this people, lots of it! I'm the type of person who has to instantly tell everyone about a product if I love it!

Well, it's been over 6 months, and I feel like I can finally give a wholesome review to my all natural alternative to night serums. Yay!!!

Today, I will be spilling  all the 411 on this nature's serum for healthy skin, how I use it, as well as what it's done for my complexion!
