Since I have to start somewhere, I’ve been making productive use of my Pinterest scrolling time and searching for some relatively simple projects to launch my wannabe hobby. Continue reading

Last year, pastel hair was all the rage, and pretty soon, #grannyhair picked up steam.  Of course, as any self-declared unicorn knows, keeping bleached hair healthy isn’t always an easy feat, but it’s worth the battle to be able to show off those colorful locks on Instagram (right?). This spring, however, it’s all about icy hair. Think pastel, but with a shimmery twist. Here are some ideas guaranteed to make you want to run to your local salon, stat. Continue reading

It’s part of the traditional American dream: the house with the white picket fence, preferably somewhere that’s green, according to Aubrey from Little Shop of Horrors. Having your own house means you own all the walls and get to hang things and paint to your heart’s content. It means you can landscape, plant trees, and put anything you want in the garage.

And you guys, let me tell you, I wanted it all. I wanted pants in patterns I didn’t even know existed and I wanted one of everything from Pottery Barn’s window display. In my mindset of craving more, I was fairly convinced that fancy tea and new snow boots were my ticket to becoming content. Continue reading
