The first day of May marks the beginning of Wedding season ( and what a long one it is, through to October!). If you’ve been lucky enough to be invited to attend someone’s upcoming nuptials I’m sure your deliberating on what to wear!
Picking out an outfit for any event can be a process, but more important events like weddings require more energy and effort.

I was planning on redecorating my girls’ bedroom dresser this past weekend, but unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans. Since she decided to water my strawberries instead of giving me appropriate weather to decorate outside, my dresser reveal post will have to wait until next week. Which I guess is okay, because it gave me a chance to do a little more researching on DIY dressers and totally changed my idea. I am amazed at how creative some people are!

So, a couple of weeks ago, a pipe burst in our attic. Water gushed out for about 12 minutes until we were able to shut it off. The ceiling caved in over our girls room and thankfully, no one was hurt. But their room was significantly damaged, as well as some damage to the hallway. That night, we called a disaster team in, checked into a hotel room and have been dealing with the repairs ever since.

Need a do for Valentine’s Day? Love curls, but can only achieve the look with an expensive visit to the salon? I feel your pain, in fact- almost every time I attempt curls using curlers or a curling iron- they stay in for about 20 minutes-yes this is after I’ve sprayed it with tight hold hair-spray. Have an extra shirt lying around? ( or drop by Goodwill for a cheap one!)
I have a quick and easy DIY using an old shirt to create beautiful hair perfect for Valentine’s Day!
