Pom – Poms

I fell in love with DIY tulle pom-poms a few years ago when my brother got married, and when you apply a similar (but so much simpler!) concept to yarn – well, you get a pretty darn fantastic yarn pom-pom!  I’m going to get wild and crazy (eye roll) and try some multi-color pom-poms this year. […]

Red Roses

Valentine’s Day is coming up and I’ve been planning valentine’s cards, and class parties and a date night (and I’m exhausted!)  I’m re-using these red, pink, and white pom-poms I made last here, and this year if I find the time I may experiment with using multiple colors for each pom-pom; I know, things get wild […]

Bud Vases

 I was helping Julie Blanner with this Mother’s Day project last week.  Julie had cut a few extra blooms for me to take home, and asked me if I had a bud vase at home.  My mind was like an 8mm film projector, slowly but surely (and fuzzily) scrolling through all the vases and glass […]

How to Store Your Tulle Skirt

I posted a few weeks ago about the tulle skirt (or princess tutu, whichever you prefer to call it) and that every girl should own one. I wore that skirt, I loved that skirt, and then that skirt threw up all over my house. I had it hanging from one door after another, and The […]

DIY Party Crowns

I live in a house full of testosterone.  I have to fight it however I can.  With things like girly DIY party crowns.  And chocolate.  I also live in a home with three boys, a husband and everything that goes with it – the laundry, the dishes, cooking and cleaning, insert more time-sucking stuff here.  […]

DIY Sequin Hanger

I’ve seen these gold sequin hangers around for awhile now and I finally decided I had to have one.  Ever the glutton for punishment, I decided I could easily make my own DIY sequin hanger.  I thought I would document it for any other people who love to make their own things:  DIY Sequin Hanger […]

Organize Your Accessories, Part 1

 I love nothing more than accessories; jewels, pearls, golds, sterling silvers, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, rings, you name it. Especially after a friend of mine recommended I looked into something like the Jacobs The Jeweller store online, I became even more obsessed with looking for high quality jewellery. Saying this though, this doesn’t mean you have […]

How To: Hair Turbans

I have a love/hate relationship with my hair.  On a good day, I’m secretly grateful I have natural curls.  On a bad day……well, I’m sure you can guess how I feel in the humidity.       I’ve read books (actually, just this one.)  It was interesting, but in the end it wasn’t helpful.  I’ve […]

How To: Up-dos, Hair-dos

I named this blog after the style I’m looking for – all things pretty, polished and perfect.  I find them, but rarely do I ever achieve the Triple P status.  (Most likely due to bad hair days and muffin tops.) My bad hair day go-to?  The Donut (Doughnut?) Bun.  The Sock Bun, minus the sock, […]
