DIY Fall Headband & Makeup Tutorial

We thought we’d come up with a fun DIY Fall Headband that would be adorable through the holiday season.  Plus while we’re at it, we thought we’d throw in a simple and pretty makeup tutorial (using all natural & organic products as well)

“Gratitude can transform

common days into thanksgivings,

turn routine jobs into joy,

and change ordinary

opportunities into blessings.”

William Arthur Ward

We LOVE this time of year and look forward to a day of thanks giving. Whether you’re joining us from the States or not, it’s a beautiful thing to take the time focus on gratitude and having a thankful heart!

But actually whether you’re from the States or not, it’s such a blessing to fill our hearts with gratitude no matter what. I actually go through a list of things I’m grateful for every day, and make sure they are new things so that I’m always absorbing the good in everything I do and see. And it’s amazing!

So with grateful hearts, and in order to honor of this very special upcoming holiday, join Tiffany, as she shows how to whip up this cute DIY Fall Headband and beautiful makeup tutorial (using natural, safe, & organic products of course!) So YOU can be a knockout naturally, YAY!

We hope the spirit of this season fills your heart with an abundance of joy. We love you guys!  Please comment below, share your thoughts, reasons to be grateful, etc., we love to hear from you!

 Simple DIY Tricks for Restoring Jewelry

We’re all about repurposed and recycled jewelry, and why wouldn’t we be? But what if it stinks like that old attic smell? In this post, we’ve got some simple DIY tricks for renewing that old jewelry, and even getting rid of that stink–yay! 🙂

This post came about because the other day I was at a Boutique and ran across a booth full of old jewelry. I must have had the “look” because the girl at the booth announced that every piece was just $3. Immediately I had to touch it, and as I felt the metals and jewels, I knew they were worth much more than the price she had set.

She continued, “We bought a storage unit at an action and it was loaded with all of this jewelry.” I was intrigued, “so I’m just selling it to get rid of it.”

Wow. Some people get all the luck, lol.

But I’m happy for her and also happy for me, because that $3 price went a very long way! As I draped 17 pieces of very cool jewelry onto one arm, I started to smell that old stinky metal smell. If I didn’t know it was an easy fix, I may have set down every one of those pieces and move on. But luckily I knew, and that’s when I realized I needed to share what I knew with you.

I went home and here is what I did:

Mix the following together:

 

INGREDIENTS

INSTRUCTIONS

Pour ingredients into a pitcher and stir.

  1. Place jewelry into a glass bowl or metal pan, then pour the mixture over the jewelry, making sure to saturate each peice.
  2. Allow to sit overnight or at least 12 hours.
  3. Remove from the liquid mixture and place jewelry pieces onto a dry towel.
  4. Allow to dry completely.
  5. Enjoy your fresh new jewelry!

Viola!! That’s all there is to it. I wish I would’ve taken a before and after because it was much more sparkly and bright after the cleaning. But had you seen it before, it was pretty dingy and dull, but luckily I could see a glimmer of hope.

So that’s all there is to it.

Many of the pieces I’ve done this with have been costume jewelry, and I haven’t had any problems with it at all. If you have something you’re afraid could get ruined, do some research before taking the plunge. But from my experience it has brought new life back to something old and forgotten, and that’s been really fun!

Let us know how it works for you! Comment below, we love hearing from you!

Spring Fever – Free Printable!

Spring is in the air!! We love it and had to do something fun to celebrate all of this beautiful sunshine!

Spring Fever - Free PrintableSo when we hooked up with the adorable, Aly Brooks, who created this cute printable, we couldn’t resist!  This one is cute, and for us, it says it all…Spring Fever! Absolutely perfect. 🙂

PIN IT! – Spring Fever – Free Printable

Download your Free Spring Fever Printable

This is super simple to do! I decided to do some iron on transfers with this printable, but it would make an adorable wall hanging or cleaning or gardening bucket too. Actually, look at the cute wall hanging Aly made!

In order to do an iron-on-transfer, you’ll need to reverse the printable, and make it the size that works for your project.

Spring Fever - Free Printable

Since my top was stretchy, I stretched it over the ironing board so the transfer would move a little with the fabric. It worked quickly and really well and the color was true to the actual download.

For the kitchen towel, I couldn’t get the transfer to release from the backing, so I had to heat the iron hotter. The fabric was cotton, so it could tolerate more heat. But I think I got a little too aggressive with the heat, thus, it turned into a nice warm golden version of the download. I kind of liked the warm version too, but in case you don’t, I thought I’d explain how to do it (or not 🙂

And whether you’re a total fashionista or think it’s beyond your reach, we’ve got some great affiliate reads for you….

Get Dressed Not Stressed! Look Great no Matter What Your Size or Age

It only took a total of about 10 minutes per printable, and I think they turned out cute! Please share what you’re going to do with yours, we can’t wait to hear!
