We threw my awesome best friend a surprise party over the weekend, I cant believe we actually managed to pull it off! She’s a really chill person so, I thought an intimate Bohemian themed hookah party complete with flower crowns was the perfect setup for her. Bohemian themed parties are really easy to put together quickly. The thing to remember is…nothing has to match really! We had tiki torches a fire pit and a taco bar set up inside. I chose some pretty tapestries I found on amazon to set the backdrop under the cabana. These tapestries were so pretty, I ordered several for the backdrop and also for the table and for people to sit on around the hookah table.
I knew I wanted lots and lots of candles and pretty things for the table, and like I said nothing matched! I went to goodwill and found so many cute candle holders and pretty jars to use. There were lots more around the cabana but, this is the table where the hookah was set up.
OMG I wish I would’ve known how to make these DIY Unicorn Horns years ago!!
These are the perfect accessory for a unicorn themed party and the kids definitely loved them too! They are so cute and simple to make with just a few things. Anyone can DIY these unicorn horns for a party or even a Halloween costume! My friend and I had fun making made these unicorn horns one night, it took just 10-15 mins to get 12 of these rolled out and in the oven ready to go. My friend was really good at getting them the perfect size so I just watched and took pics and decorated them the next day.Read More
In just about 2 weeks my little girl will be turning 2 and having the coolest unicorn party!
This is so crazy, I feel like I was just sitting on the edge of the bed 9 months pregnant trying to figure out just how this was all going to work. Finding out you are pregnant is one thing but, then you have all the crazy emotions that start up and you realize you are about to have to take care of another human being… for me this was mind blowing!! I was just learning how to adult for myself! For the first 4 months of my pregnancy I ate pizza and cried my eyes out watching Roseanne reruns. I mean what if I can’t do it? What if I drop her, I hate holding babies. What if I cant get her to stop crying? What if she hates me? How does this diaper changing thing work? So many things but, after she arrived I instantly knew what I was meant to be in this world, and that was Aaliyahs mommy! Read More
So back in January my friends had talked me into a trip to Vegas. I hate leaving my daughter for any period of time but, it was one of the only times I would get to see a lot of my favorite people all at once. So, I skipped town for literally 24hrs to go hang out and party with everyone. Vegas is just not the same now that I have a kid lol while everyone was sleeping away their hangovers from the day before I headed off to the mall to go find my mini me something cool to bring home. Somehow I ended up in the LUSH store! I love LUSH, I used to be highly addicted to everything they have. Their body bars and scrubs are my favorites and I love the fact that the ingredients they use are all natural and good for you! I couldn’t help but notice the increasing prices since the last time I had shopped there. I found some cute little bath bombs and bubble bars that I thought my daughter would love but…..$9??!!?? I grabbed her 1 of each because I couldn’t help it of course. That girl is spoiled!
When I got back home it was game over, she was in love and I literally watched $9 go down the drain for the next few nights of my life (that really adds up!). So, I decided to make my own! I looked all over pinterest and youtube and tried 4 different recipes until I finally found something that worked.
Just dropping off the first of many or these super easy 4 step DIY’s! Sharpie mugs are quick and easy gifts that require zero special skills! I picked up this ceramic coffee cup at the $1 store which is definitely one of my favorite stores in the whole world? There’s so much in there and nothing is ever what it seems, I just keep telling yourself that! I have purchased many items there and given them complete makeovers like this centerpiece below.
I used a candle stick holder, a tea light, glass, vase fillers and flowers all from the $1 store and they were so cute all lit up!
Ok on with the tutorial!
Coffee cup/mug (glass works for this project too!)
Sharpie paint markers in fun colors.
(I chose medium point markers. I Originally used a fine tip gold and did not like the outcome. I definitely think the medium point looks better, especially for the dot design.)
Heart shaped sticker.
(I used my cricut machine to cut a 3×3 heart)
Stick your heart sticker or cut out right in the center of the mug.
Decorate with your sharpie around the heart cut out. I started with one color all the way around and then went back and added the other color. I was a little conservative with the dots but I honestly, want to go back and add more. So get crazy with yours! Dot that thing up!!
Have your drink of choice, and wait for your creation to dry! I gave mine a good 10min of drying time.
Peel sticker and Ta-da!! So easy!
