Guys, big things are starting to happen at the house and I finally feel like I can see the light at the end of the renovation tunnel. It’s been a long 4 months so far, but we’re getting there. We’ve given ourselves a deadline of Christmas, so it’s time to really push through and get this baby finished. One of the biggest projects in phase 1 is the master bathroom. We’re almost doing a complete gut job, but before the reveal happens, I want to share the details for the master bathroom renovation plans that we’re tackling to change the look and feel of the space!
I’ve been VERY quiet around here and on social media lately, mostly because I’ve been exhausted (which you can read more about below). 2020 has been filled with so many things, some good and some bad, but it’s also been filled with lots of big changes for us that (seems like) happened overnight. One of the biggest things to happen this year was the 180 degree turn we made in regards to our living situation, and…spoiler alert (!!)….we bought a house! (Also, yes, Josh is really this happy about the new house, but since he’s out of town for work for a little bit longer, I definitely needed to include him too. Also, sorry Josh. Haha).
I can definitely say that we’ve been cooking and baking A LOT at our house during quarantine. It’s been fun to re-connect in the kitchen, but sometimes you really just need to get out and grab something from your favorite restaurant in town. Luckily, they’ve kept the restaurants open for take out and we’ve splurged a few times, because it’s all about supporting local and keeping your faves in business, right? In honor of that, I’m sharing some fun printable temporary take out tattoos that you can print right from the comfort of your own home! They’re fun for the whole family to play around with during quarantine, and since most of us are working from home right now, your boss won’t judge you either 😉
I tend to entertain a lot during the fall and winter months. Between October and February tons of holidays and events can creep up and can become a little overwhelming when you’re responsible for feeding a crowd. Today, I’m sharing how to set up a DIY chili bar, which is one of my favorite easy entertaining ideas to use all season long. (Super Bowl anyone?!) They don’t require a lot of effort on your part and can be made to appeal to a variety of diets and tastes. I’m also sharing a delicious recipe for my favorite turkey chili too!
With everything going on in my life these last few months, I’m a little behind on my holiday gifts. I just finished crossing everything off of my shopping list, but I haven’t even started wrapping anything yet. Luckily, I’ll still be able to wrap the prettiest packages and they won’t take me very long thanks to this DIY wax seal holiday gift wrap idea! It’s so easy to do and looks so chic!
If you’re still a little behind on the holiday decorating or have yet to get very crafty so far this month, I have a SUPER easy DIY project that you can whip up in an afternoon and it will check off both of those boxes for you! This DIY holiday gift box wreath is so cute and you’ll be shocked at how easy it is to put together.
I’m not sure how summer temps have been in the rest of the country lately, but Utah has been hitting over 100 degrees these last few days! Bring on all of the frozen drinks and pool days please! But if you combine those sunny and hot days with an extra dry desert climate, you’ve got a recipe for a dry skin disaster. I can always tell when my skin needs an extra little moisture boost and when it does, I head into my kitchen to whip up this easy DIY avocado aloe face mask!
Not sure about you guys, but lately my skin has been feeling a little less than perfect. The winter season has left it dry and dull and I’m on a mission to get it summer ready! One of my favorite ways to do that is by using this DIY brightening face mask! It’s soooo easy to make and really helps get my skin out of that post-winter rut! Plus, I love using all natural ingredients!
Check out the super simple tutorial and make your own mask this weekend!
