And just like that, Valentine’s Day is a week away! With all of the wedding events happening, the Super Bowl was the last thing on my mind on Sunday, so I decided to bring heart shaped whoopie pies to the party we attended to try to fit in a little Valentine’s day celebrating before it passed me by.

So remember when we were planning out Adriana’s small apartment layout and decor plans back in November? Well, she has finally moved in and we have some updates to share!
Over the weekend, I hosted Megan’s bachelorette party with all of her incredibly sweet friends, and we had the BEST time! These days, weddings and the associated parties can get so out of hand and outrageous, and it was important to her that we keep things casual. In order to do that, it was very DIY and required some planning, but it turned out to be such a great time where we focused on spending time together and showering the bride-to-be.

Well, as it so happens, folks, we’ve had two days of snow in Houston in one Winter season. It’s true insanity after living here for eight years and only seeing snow one other time, but I’ll take a day working at home and the best soup weather there ever was! And really, truly, there’s nothing I like better than a big bowl of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich.
As promised, I’m sharing some of my travel tidbits from my trip to the United Kingdom, or the UK for short, over the holidays! A group of friends and I jetted over to Edinburgh for New Year’s Eve, better known as Hogmanay, and then took the train down to London for five days. This leads into today’s blog post: 8 days, one carry on, one personal item, and a whole lot of cold weather – can it be done? Continue reading “How to Pack for a Week in the UK Winter in a Carry On”
Happy New Year, everyone! I am back from vacation in the UK visiting Scotland and England and am SO READY to share this dress tutorial with you! A fitted bodice, simple gathered skirt, and caps sleeves were the basis for this beauty, but the true magic comes from the beaded and embroidered fabric. I finished it weeks ago, but the post is just now ready… life, ya know? Continue reading “Beaded Dress with Fitted Bodice and Cap Sleeves Sewing Tutorial”
Wow, has this been the craziest December, or is it just me? Usually the end of the year at work is quiet and painfully slow, but this year I’ve been going non-stop. I’ve also been working on a sewing project that I’m hoping to share with you all as soon as possible… as it turns out, beaded fabric is sort of the worst to work with. Gorgeous, but my little fingers are sick of picking rhinestones off of mesh if you know what I mean. Continue reading “Banana Mini Muffins with Streusel Topping”
It’s that time of year again! (The most wonderful time of the year, some might add.) Christmas trees are going up, every candle in the house is lit, and sweaters and leggings have become the unofficial uniform of the season. It’s also time for holiday parties, and that means holiday dresses.
