It’s when you need a quick solution without spending too much.

You might remember one of our previous This Girl posts where we showed you how to make your own paper earrings. If you made those, then you know how absolutely easy they are to make! All you need is cardstock, string, and jewelry hardware. We’ve provided the Cricut files too so you can easily cut out the few shapes that you will need. With these earrings, you can be sure to make a statement while keeping yourself from getting pinched!

DIY Shamrock scrunchie

How to wear green on St Patrick’s dayEvery time I hear the word “scrunchie” I 1) cringe 2) hearken back to my oversized sweatshirts and bunches up socks 3) repeat “my lucky srunchie. It helped me pass Spanish.” (Name that movie). So today, now that scrunchies have some way made their way back into our vocabulary, we are making a lucky scrunchie with this DIY shamrock scrunchie, just in time for St. Patrick’s day.

How to paint lime wash with Pure and Original Paint

We recently released a new collection of home goods in partnership with interior designer, Meta Coleman, and today she’s sharing a peek into her new main floor. Meta’s home is constantly evolving stylistically as she grows and I love seeing the process into how she brings it altogether. She gathers inspiration from her favorite artists and travels to create a truly one of a kind home.

Today she’s going into detail about the new colors in her house in partnership with Pure and Original Paint, her lime wash company of choice. Lime wash has the most lovely texture and it’s been something she’s been experimenting with the last couple of years. I’m excited to let you in on this technique with you!  – Brittany

DIY rainbow pom

St. Patrick’s Day means many things but around here it means EVEN MORE RAINBOWS than normal–and we already live in a rainbow-filled world. We’ve been spotting lots of motif-themed poms and thought it would be fun to try it out our own DIY rainbow pom. It’s just like normal pom-making but with some layering and cutting involved. It’s much simpler than you might expect! We added on some solid colored poms to create a tassel. Together they’d be great to hang on a bag to get your festive green in.
