DIY Beaded Mittens

DIY Beaded Mittens

Winter has finally arrived and we’ve been dealing with some pretty chilly temperatures. We’ve enjoyed the season’s first snow and the colder days are begging for mugs of cocoa and cozy sweaters. If you’re lucky (or unlucky for those of you with a cold weather aversion) enough to live in a climate that requires warm weather ware, then you’ve probably been unpacking the extra layers. But just because you’ve got to bundle up, does not mean you have to look like a lackluster marshmallow. Slip on a pair of these DIY Beaded Mittens to solve your winter woes!DIY Beaded Mittens

We wanted to glitz things up this year and when we happened upon the stunning knitwear work of Laerke Bagger, we were immediately inspired! I can’t imagine how much time it takes her to make all her stunning creations. A boring pair of mittens is the perfect vehicle for loads of sparkle and a fun way to pump up a winter outfit! This project is ideal for a few nights in watching holiday movies.

Get the how-to after the jump!

Where to find cute baby boy clothes and giveaway

Lars Baby Shower

As you might recall, I was a skeptical of finding adorable baby boy clothes (you know, stuff that doesn’t have “Little Slugger” plastered on it)  but as we’ve been preparing for the arrival of Baby Boy (due in January!), I’ve been overwhelmed at the number of options. There are way more than I thought! I’ve been lucky to work with some of my favorite brands to create this post and I’m featuring them here so all of you in a similar predicament can have a go-to resource as well. Of course, they’re good for both boy AND girl. If you have more to add, I’m all ears! I’m keeping a very active spreadsheet 😉  Just email or dm me on Instagram.

And…AND! As we previously mentioned, for the rest of the year we are doing a series of giveaways where we recognize the many women around us who teach, lead, serve, work, struggle, love, and support. I’m sure there are a lot of mamas, soon-to-be-mamas, or people who love mamas, who are in need of a treat and and this is your chance. We’ve teamed up with 8 of our favorite brands on a massive giveaway.

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!
