DIY Gold Letter Ring & Jewelry Dish - Aerie Inspired

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

I find inspiration for my DIY projects from many places! One of the best kind of inspirations are items that I see in stores that I love and know others will love, too, especially since I can usually show people how to make them for less than buying them. This particular DIY Ring Dish (or jewelry dish) is inspired by one that I loved when I saw it at Aerie--America Eagle's sister company--and instantly knew I could show you all how to make. Let's do it!

My Beauty Buys - March Edition

Thursday, April 7, 2016

It's been so long since I've done a Beauty Buys post--just about a year--so it's nice to be sharing these most recent beauty purchases with you all! To be honest, some months it's easy for me to bring these posts to you guys, but then other months when I don't purchase any beauty products (😮), or nothing that I really like, there isn't really a point to doing a Beauty Buys post. I'm going to try to keep up with these monthly posts again--even if I only have one product to share with you guys--because I really do like doing them and you guys seem to have liked them in the past, too! So here we go, these are the 3 beauty goodies I am sharing with you all from my March purchases..

Holy smokes; these were soo much fun to make!! For anyone who thinks this project seems "too difficult", I promise you, it is really super easy, and did I mention how much fun it is? The quick setting cement I used made this project much quicker to complete than you may think, as well!

Gradually, it will happen!
