Our France itinerary

It’s been a few weeks since our trip to France and as we’ve been cooking on all 4 cylinders since, what with the One Room Challenge and all of our holiday content, not to mention some upcoming big projects (stay tuned!), but I’ve now hunkered down to share our itinerary because if you ever get to the chance to plan a trip to France I’d highly recommend so many things that we did. They took my breath away. I mean, look at my face here! That’s the look of pure joy (and it’s all staged because we’re pulled off to the side of the road 😉 )  Because we were there for a wedding, it took us to a part of the country that I’ve always wanted to go to but hadn’t prioritized yet. It was a life-long dream really.

Instead of creating a comprehensive Paris guide, I’m just noting a few bucket list items that may or may not be the Eiffel Tower. You can find those in all tour books. These are worth it, but not mentioned as often. Here we go!

DIY Shoe Appliques

DIY Shoe AppliquesWe’ve been seeing the most glamorous shoes this fall and we’ve caught the bug. My shopping cart is full of velvet, embroidered, and detailed shoes that I’m sure positive would make any outfit ten times more beautiful. Unfortunately, I don’t currently have a fairy godmother dropping off glass slippers. However, I’ve found an easy hack that will easily transform a basic shoe into something you’d be hard-pressed to take off! These DIY Shoe Appliques is the perfect solution. Luxury is only a pair of shoes away!

Check out the full DIY!

4 easy iron-on costumes

Green house Halloween costumeAm I the only one that tends to get burnt out from all the Halloween hullabaloo before Halloween even arrives? This isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy every minute of Halloween prep because believe me, I think about Halloween nearly every single day of the year (sadly, this is true!) But when the end of the month finally rolls around, I realize I haven’t even planned out my own costume! Decorations, parties, festivals, and plenty of other things seem to fill up my schedule (and brain), leaving me frantically throwing a costume together last minute. Well, we’ve come up with the solution. Halleluja! We’ve joined forces with Cricut to create four easy iron-on Costumes! Each adorable Halloween costume can be thrown together in less than an hour! The iron-on vinyl decals can be easily cut out with the new Cricut Maker and ironed on with the Easy Press! Bonus? You probably already have something in your closet that you can easily transform into one of these costumes!

5 mama and baby costumes

Russian nesting doll mommy and baby costume Artist and palette mommy and baby costumeHalloween is fast approaching and there are few holidays I like more! Spooky and creepy may not seem like the name of the game here at Lars, but we love to go all out! What’s more fun than dressing up?! You’ve probably heard that I’m pregnant (yeah, that’s the bump under my dresses, folks), 24 weeks to be exact, so naturally, we have babies on the brain here! We’ve teamed up with Solly Baby this Halloween season to create 5 amazing costumes for moms and their little ones along with their daily giveaways on Instagram! Each costume has a component for the mom and then a way to dress up the Solly wrap in a coordinating costume for their baby. We are so thrilled with how they all turned out! And even if you don’t have a babe to tote around on Halloween, these costumes would still be amazing! I’m having a hard time choosing, but I think I’m going to go with the Russian doll costume myself! But who knows! They’re all so good!Mushroom and garden gnome baby and mommy costume Chiquita and banana mommy and baby costumeStork and package mommy and baby costume

Check out all the looks and start planning your costume! I’d love to know which one is your favorite?

Paper Flower Corsage and Customized Ribbon

Paper Flower CorsageWith school back in session, everyone seems to be back to the grind. However, it’s not all doom and gloom this month! I’ve been noticing the preparation for homecoming festivities at the local high schools and universities around here. Homecoming means football, friends, family, and dancing. It’s a time to celebrate a new year and recognize years past. Something we can all get behind, am I right?!

Paper Flower Corsage

Inspired by the traditional homecoming dances, we wanted to create a beautiful paper flower corsage you could don at a homecoming dance, and even a wedding or other special occasion. Not just any corsage though. This one is entirely handmade out of paper with lovely personalized details to ensure that you can keep it for years to come. We’ve teamed up with Brother to add a personalized ribbon using their P-Touch Embellish ribbon and tape printer. You can display your name, school, graduation date, or whatever catches your fancy on the ribbon! Tucked into the paper flower corsage, this makes a beautiful, customized accessory, and an even lovelier keepsake.

Make sure to check out the full tutorial!
