Easter in Pictures

I hope you had a wonderful Easter! I look forward to this weekend every year, and the joy and hope that it brings. It’s funny how having a baby makes you look at things, like holidays, a lot differently. I found myself super conflicted over the easter bunny this year, and we ended up not […]

Mama + Me: Welcome, Spring!

This is by far one of my favorite outfits I have put Piper in. She just kills me in that little bonnet, polka dotted tights, and blue dress. We took these pictures on a chilly morning with my gal pal and photography genius, Jessi Nichols. I’m still not totally sure I trust Spring as to […]

Peppermint & Eucalyptus Shower Melts

Sometimes the closest I get to some spa time is the 5-10 minutes I slip away to take a shower while the kids are napping. It’s sacred time, people! 😉 Lately I’ve been trying to think of ways to make shower time a "treat yo self" experience. Yummy smelling shampoos, fancy masks… but recently I’ve been loving these little DIY shower melts. The peppermint and eucalyptus (with a touch of…

Gold Star Manicure DIY

Simple, yet pretty are the types of manicures that I tend to gravitate towards the most. I saw a pic of someone with unpolished nails and teeny tiny gold star decorations and thought it was such a simple yet elegant way to add a little bling to your normal nail routine. Really easy and really pretty? Where do I sign up!? Supplies: -gold star confetti -wax pencil -clear topcoat (I…

Messy Bubble Ponytail

I’ve been playing around with different wet-set techniques to give myself some curls overnight. They’re great in theory, but some are a little trickier than others and can lead to some crazy morning hair. Which is annoying since part of the point of wet-sets are to save time in the morning! On this particular day, my hair curled in the front, but the back was almost completely straight. Ugh. But…

DIY Patch Laptop Case

We’re back with another simple DIY project! We’ve been really into the patch trend lately. They’re showing up everywhere from denim jackets to purses. Patches are an easy way to make something generic into a custom piece that shows your personality. For this project, we decided to jazz up a plain laptop case. There are tons of solid computer cases out there just begging for some flair. The patches we…

Make Your Own Relaxing Massage Oil!

I’m just going to come right out and say it, this massage oil smells like every good thing on earth and is changing my life! I’m definitely being a little dramatic, but I can’t get over how yummy and relaxing this oil smells. After I made it, I would walk by it in our bathroom and just put a little on my hands and arms to smell throughout the day….

Vanilla Latte Coffee Scrub DIY

If you haven’t tried a sugar scrub yet, let me tell you, you don’t know what you are missing! I tried one for the first time last year, and I’ve been hooked ever since. The fine grains from the sugar exfoliate while the oils keep your skin feeling soft and supple long after the shower is over. I bought a shower scrub last year that had coffee in it, and…

Sister Style: Spring Cleaning

You guys! I have been a complete psycho about spring cleaning lately. I’ve already gone through and weeded out all my makeup and skincare… LOVE being down to the bare essentials. Now, I’m working on my closet. I’m cleaning out and trying to figure out what I need to be looking for for spring and summer. I find spring to be one of the hardest seasons to shop for. Summer…

Try This: Turn a Simple Straw Clutch into the Perfect Vacation Bag!

Whether you are in college and getting ready for your spring break trip or well past the dorm life but feel Arnold’s sentiments from Terminator 2 ("I need a vacation"…), chances are you’ll be gearing up to go somewhere warm this spring or summer to get a piece of that beach life. Since picking out outfits for vacation is almost as much fun as the trip itself (at least for…

Step Three: Take a small section of hair beneath your twists on the left side of your head. Twist it a few times, then pull it above where you tied your hair off and under…

Epsom Salt Bath Soak

I’ve always been a HUGE fan of baths… and the whole pretend-spa-at-home thing! I love setting aside a little "me time" in the form of a face mask, a hot bath and maybe a glass of wine? Today I’m excited to teach you a really simple recipe for an epsom salt bath soak. When I started "cleaning up" my beauty (and household products) routine last year, it took time. Like,…

Eye Spy A Button-Down DIY

Ha. The post title just makes me laugh. Anyway, I saw a photo of this really cute button-up shirt that had lashes embroidered over the top of each buttonhole, and I thought it would be such a fun DIY to add to my own shirt! Rather than embroider the lashes, I decided to use some good ol’ fashioned fabric puff paint (remember those puffy paint days??) to get a clean…

Luckily, all it takes to refresh winter skin is…

Sister Style: Get Happy

Probably the thing I think about the most is happiness. Am I happy? Is my husband happy? Are my employees happy? (It still and probably always will make me feel weird to say "my employees". It also weirds me out when someone introduces me as their boss, even when it’s accurate. 🙂 I guess you could say I am a little obsessed with happiness, although I have a feeling that…
