I Have to Have it: New Series


, , , , , , , , , ,

I Have to Have it, is going to be a new series for the blog. These posts will be up once a week. The purpose of this seriesĀ is to take a particular brand (mostly makeup brands) and do a review on the brand and the products.

Most people do research before they go out and buy products so this is another avenue for you all to gain exposure to different brands you may have been thinking about trying. These posts will be mostly higher end brands because people definitely want to know if it is worth the money. ENJOY!

Live it. Love it. Style it.


My Fav Time of Year!



Daylight Savings Time is over, the weather is getting cooler, and the Christmas Countdown on the Hallmark Channel has started! That’s right it’s the most wonderful time of the year! The holidays are upon us and it really is a special time.
I love everything about this time. For me the holidays just make life a little easier, less stressful, and more fun. The music is better, the food is great, I get to start decorating, and people just seem nicer. Nothing can get me down this time of year.
So after a very long absence I am writing to all of you; stay positive, be happy, give thanks, and enjoy it because before you know it this time will come to an end and the countdown will start again.

Best time of the year!

DIY: Harvest Wreath


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

This is my favorite time of year which means I HAVE to decorate! I have been seeing these gorgeous fall wreaths in the stores but they are soooo expensive it is ridiculous! So of course inspiration struck… DIY.

What you need:

  • a base wreath
  • harvest garland (I used three 4ft strands)
  • other little touches like flowers or festive add-ons (I used little berry looking things)

I bought everything at Dollar Tree and I spent $5!

What I did:

  1. I took the garland and wound it around my base wreath pulling an shaping as I went along. I did this with all three strands until I had the desired fullness that I was looking for.
  2. I secured the garland to the base wreath by tying it to the wreath. No hot glue or any adhesive is needed for this project.
  3. I pulled the berry looking things off their stems and attached them to the stems on the garland around the wreath and again adjusted and shaped until it looked how I wanted.

Final product:
