With the first week of school under our belt I’m hoping our routine becomes a little easier to follow. It’s always a rude awakening going from sleeping in, playing all day, and staying up late to alarms going off early, a busy routine, sports every night, and lots of homework.  I’ve kinda been MIA when it comes to my blog but with the kids back on their routine I can be back on mine.

Today I want to share an easy go-to outfit you can throw on without putting too much thought or effort into it and still manage to look put together.  When it’s hot out and I’m not in the mood for jeans I pull out a maxi skirt.  I love pairing it with a basic t-shirt or a blouse and a little jewelry.

Hopefully I can stay on track and be consistent with my blogging.  Thanks for reading, hope you have a great week!

I’ve had such an obsession with stripes lately.  Just about every stripe I see I want to buy.  This top was no exception, especially with it being on sale.  It’s so light and summery, it’s perfect!  I think it’s going to be on major repeat for me!

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you’re having a great Thursday!

I’m kind of obsessed with stripes and straw bags right now.  I’ve had this bag for a couple years and bring it out every spring/summer, it’s timeless!  This outfit has been on repeat lately because it’s just so easy to throw on and run errands without looking sloppy.  I’d love to hear what your go-to outfit is.

Thanks for stopping by!

MUAH!

It’s raining and cold here today so Tommy and I are staying in and I’ve been doing a little crafting. Valentine’s Day is almost here but it’s never too late to work on a few projects.  I made a pink glitter kiss on a gold and white canvas.  I love this one and will probably keep it in my office (if Elle doesn’t sneak it up to her room) after the 14th.

Here’s what I started with…

.Valentine's Lip Canvas on calicrest.com

Here are the “lips” I found on google and printed from my computer, just cut them out and use them to trace.  You can use any lip tempate you find, I liked the size of this one.

First I taped off my canvas with the tape shown (it’s not painters tape so it bled a bit but I’m okay with that, I kind of like the not so perfect lines look on this one.

Next I spray painted my canvas gold…

Once it’s dry, peel the tape and start tracing your lips.  Once they’re traced fill those lips with glue (I used Elmer’s Glue and it worked great).

Pour your glitter, dust it off and wa-la!  You’ve got your Valentine’s Day lips canvas.

Hope everyone’s having a fun Valentine’s Day week, tonight we’ll be working on the kids Valentine’s that they’ll take to school on Friday.
