DIY Turban Headband

I’m a vendor in a craft show this weekend, my second year, I’m really excited. Being my first year last year I really didn’t know what to expect. I made tons of really cute headbands, and they pretty much all sold! It was definitely my best seller item. This year, I made a ton of headbands and hair clips, with the hopes that they will sell well again.

I just found this really cute DIY Turban Headband tutorial and am thinking I will mock up a few of these too. I have a feeling these would be really hot sellers too. Use old stretchy fabric or t-shirts to make them, talk about comfy! Follow the full tutorial here >>


Gift Ideas for Engaged Friends

I’m getting to the age where lots of my friends are getting engaged. I feel like every time I log onto Facebook there is another engaged couple, married couple or couple having babies! Ugh. Not ready for that. I haven’t had any super close friends get engaged yet but I know it’s coming soon. I never thought about what gifts to get for engaged couples, I didn’t even know you were supposed to get a gift?

Anyways, I stumbled across this idea and thought it was so cute. I know when my best friends get engaged I will totally make them something like this. It’s realistic and usable, unlike many other gifts I have seen. Also, it’s affordable. I love the nail polish and magazine ideas, also the champagne (that’s a given!) Check out this idea here.


Halloween Hotdog Mummies

Happy Halloween everyone! I absolutely love this holiday, it is probably my favorite. What is not to love about crunchy leaves, pumpkins, and dressing up into a costume? This is my first year not “going out” for Halloween and it’s a very weird feeling. Rather than binge drinking in a costume, like I did in college I plan on going out for a mature dinner with drinks.

Although I’m sad about not going out like I did in college, I’m not going to miss the hangover. That’s for sure! Instead, I want to make these cute hotdog mummies for my nieces and nephews :) As soon as I saw these I knew I would make them, they are so cute and festive. I’m not a fan but my nieces and nephews love hotdogs, what kid doesn’t really? check them out here!

Pop of Color Smokey Eye

Add a pop of color to your eyelids with this pictorial. I’m always a fan of seeing a pop of colored eyeshadow, however, I never know how to apply it without looking like a clown. I’m really digging this plum/burgundy color added to the smoky eye. This pictorial is easy to follow and perfect for the beginner.

I’m definitely going to try it this weekend, I have a wedding to go to and this will be perfect. I’m not sure if I will line both lids like it shows in this picture, I feel like a witch when I do that. I have a plum colored pallet so I think I will dab into that color. One thing to keep in mind when creating a dramatic eye is to remember to fill in those eyebrows! I always think it looks so silly when there is tons of makeup on the eyelid and the eyebrows are sparse, no shame, fill ‘em!

Body Treatments Huntington Beach | VOTED #1 Day Spa in Orange County, CA

I have been breaking out lately with both dry skin and some acne. I’m not sure what the cause is, I’m thinking the weather changes are messing with my skin. I typically have very dry skin and it gets even worse going through winter. To try to prevent this from happening, I have been really spoiling myself with bi-weekly facials, a girl has to spoil herself somehow!

I have noticed after receiving regular facials how much nicer my skin is looking! It’s amazing what a little work can do. Although I try to give myself at home facials using all sorts of creams and DIY ideas, nothing compares to the pumpkin peel facial. Body treatments Huntington Beach offers, is hard to find. After being voted #1 Day Spa in Orange County, I can’t help but find myself coming back all the time. I have been finding tons of really good deals and coupons, which makes it possible for me to go so often.
