: D EYE Y : yarn wall hanging

wall-hanging-main

  1. What you need: buy some yarn in 1 or 2 colors that you like (I used this & this). Next, go stick hunting in your back yard or if you want a cleaner look you can buy some wooden dowels (get here). lastly, grab some scissors.
  2. Decide about how long you want your yarn to hang down, and then double that number. thats how long you need each piece of yarn to be because you will fold it in half for 2 lines of hanging yarn. (I used bundles of 5 pieces of yarn so 10 strands hang down, but you can use any amount).
  3. Place the yarn as pictured in #2 and loop it onto the stick. tighten the yarn well at the top and voila! it’s that easy. Continue down the stick until you have the amount of yarn you want. I have seen a lot of yarn hangings trimmed straight at the bottom, or into patterns, but I was feelin the way mine naturally ended up because obviously I ended up not measuring accurately. — hope you enjoy!🙂

: CHRISTMAS HAUL :

x-main

There is nothing I love more than a good haul. I was very blessed this christmas with some awesome gifts, and I wanted to share. Whether you want to gift yourself, your best friend or anyone else in your life, I thought these would also be some great ideas!

The first picture above is a group of my absolute faves this christmas. I have been wanting those frends headphones for ages, and a turquoise polaroid camera? duh. I’ve also had a thing for pineapples for quite some time, so those gold pineapple tumblers were a major hit, and the pineapple phone case to go a long with it was the cherry on top. Confession: I have way too many pairs of sunglasses, hence why 2 pairs made it into my favorites. I got the grey Quay ones from the husband (well done) and the amazing gold cat ear betsey Johnson ones from my mom (thanks zulily sale). Also, thanks to my sister and her Sephora obsession, I got some AWESOME makeup this christmas, more about that if you keep reading down. but really, that nude eyeshadow palette by bobby brown is my favorite eye shadow palette ever! Moving on to that amazing black camera – I have been wanting to get my blog up and running and do some experimenting with videos. I did some research and found and asked for the canon g7x for christmas for my big gift and I absolutely love it so far. Highly recommend if you don’t want a giant camera, but something nicer than a tiny digital camera.  Now i’ll be off now to drink iced coffee from my shiny gold starbucks tumbler, read the fabulous love style life book (that is way too pretty not to permanently keep on your coffee table), and doodle away in my rifle paper notebook.🙂

Obviously I love makeup, but I have never really been one of those girls totally obsessed, that is until 2015. For some reason I have finally started buying makeup that wasn’t from Walgreens and it’s my most expensive new hobby.  I will end up broke if I continue at this rate. I think it probably has something to do with my new YouTube star obsession- they always post so many amazing makeup tutorials. This is why I have so much Zoella and Tanya Burr in my beauty haul – I’m not sure if I will ever outgrow my tween phase. I love Zoella’s shimmer and solid fragrance, the scent is truly awesome. The lip gloss by Tanya Burr is definitely something I have been wearing constantly since christmas, it is the best deep burgundy/red. Everything else pictured is amazing but I have to talk about my 2 new favorites- the Clinque mascara and the benefit brow kit. Seriously if you are into trying new mascaras, the Clinique one will change your life- it makes your lashes so long and the wand is smaller so you can get every lash. Next, the brow kit- I have never used one in my life until I got this one for christmas and I love it. I never even knew what it was until I tried my sisters out one day, it really does make a difference!
