Ha! I Made It!- Neon Pom Pom Necklace

I’ve mentioned that I’m obsessed with neon right now and while I’m still looking for that perfect neon dress I am still injecting little bits of neon into my winter wardrobe. I wanted a neon necklace that was a little bolder than my bluma project necklace (seen here), so I decided to make one :). There’s really not a whole lot of steps to this sweet DIY, but we shall first start off with supplies.   Supplies: Chain-I had some… View Post

Smile File-LIN-teresting :)

I can’t believe it’s already All-Star Weekend and I have not posted about basketball at all! Truthfully, because of the lockout and the short season basketball was not super exciting to me. I was a bit deflated with watching games. Short seasons have teams on an aggressive schedule and I think it really just tires them and sadly it shows. BUT THEN(!) something LIN-teresting… DUHHH! I’m talking about Jeremy Lin and his inspiring story. Above is a site called Linterest… View Post

Where the Goodwill Goes Tour

Friends, I was incredibly lucky to be invited on a tour to the Goodwill NY/NJ headquarters in Astoria last week and it was profound! This tour truly made me love Goodwill even MORE! I learned so many things about the amazing work of Goodwill and what WE do to help their very worthy mission. Lesson 1-Nothing Goes to Waste! DONATE! DONATE! DONATE! I was really under the impression that there are certain things that should NOT be donated. I would… View Post

Consciously Trending…Bad Girl Bag

Well friends, I have come to terms with the fact that I’m a bit of a bag monogamist. I basically have a rotation of the same 5 bags during the work week but I heavily heavily rely on a go to bag and for me that is a bad girl bag. The above is my now retired bad girl bag. It served me well but honestly not as long as it should have in my opinion. While it looks pretty… View Post

It’s Not Too Late!-Last Minute Valentine’s Day Gifts

  Even though Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday I really like this day super simple and I prefer Valentine’s gifts that are small and full of thought. Here are some thoughtful gifts that you can still manage to put together this evening! For your family: I made these little transfers last night. Directions HERE, pictures don’t quite do them justice, it looks like they’re some kind of archival paintings. Really pretty outcome and definitely a project you can get… View Post

I Heart the Internet

“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.” Ralph Waldo Emerson Happy second week of the second month of the year, friends! I think we all need this little quote from Emerson at times. By staying angry, sad, or upset at something you are really eating the seconds you could spend happy. Ways to stay positive and start loving your body. Karen of Where Did U Get That? has a new bloggy on cute couples (not… View Post
