Face Mask DIY

Face Mask DIY

Who said face masks can’t be chic? The scarcity of face masks is a real problem and you shouldn’t contribute to it! Our healthcare professionals need them and we all should do our part. STAY HOME and make your own! I obviously had some Katie Kime material hanging around and put it to good use. Follow the instructions in the link below.

SPOOKTACULAR IDEAS

SPOOKTACULAR IDEAS
BOO!  Halloween is next week and if you are a procrastinator like me, you probably haven't put up any of your decorations yet or thought about what costume to wear to that party this Saturday night. Not to worry! There are so many easy and fun ways to incorporate festive ideas into your home decor and party planning.

To say that I love Halloween is an understatement. I'm actually OBSESSED with it. When it comes to decorations, you can get SO creative and work within whatever budget you have set. Listed below are some SPOOKTACULAR ideas that you should try this year!!


Halloween Party Essentials:

1. 
SKULL ice molds and/or floating EYE BALLS - you have to have something festive floating around in your punch bowl. Details matter and your guests will LOVE it. #INSTAGRAMWORTHY

2. Beakers, Syringes & Skull shot glasses - Halloween drinkware is dangerous. There are so many options and you could go CRAZY on the cocktail front. Checkout my Instagram post for drinkware ideas! If you have the app LiketoKnow.it and you like or screenshot my Instagram post, you will receive an email/notification with links to where to find some of my favorite Halloween-themed glassware.

3. Skeleton Mouse/Rat Cheese Board - unless you are lactose intolerant, everyone LOVES a good cheese spread. Get a cheap slate board and style it with various cheeses and of course a mouse/rat toy (it doesn't necessarily need to be a skeleton). I tend to also style my cheese boards with faux cockroaches. It's a great unappetizing yet AMAZING touch.
 
Halloween Decor Essentials:

1. Spooky candles - Black taper candles, bloody candles (see my previous DIY here), and skull candles SCREAM Halloween! This year, I up-cycled wine bottles to create my tablescape decor.
DIY trick: To get rid of the wine labels, all you have to do is soak your bottles in hot, soapy water and scrape. I found that not all of the adhesive residue was coming off after I soaked the bottles, so I applied Goo Gone to remove what was remaining.

2. Cobwebs - Cheap and classic. Like the saying goes, "if you got it, HAUNT it." You can pretty much throw cobwebs on anything for a creepy look. #HAUNTED

3. Lights - From ravens to mummies to ghosts, outdoor/indoor Halloween lights are necessary. Don't be that neighbor that pretends they aren't home. Get festive! Lights attract the trick-or-treaters, DUH!

FOR THE LOVE OF FLOWERS

FOR THE LOVE OF FLOWERS
Talk about FLOWER POWER. I’m a sucker for all things floral and I absolutely love how an artfully styled arrangement can transform your tablescape. We all know how expensive floral arrangements can be, and given that I find it necessary to incorporate flowers into my weekly décor, I had to start arranging them myself.

 

My love for florals inspired me to take a class with the QUEEN, Holly Chapple, who taught me the essentials that I needed to make a balanced and romantic arrangement.  And, I recently had the opportunity to put my amateur skills to the test in designing the centerpieces for a bridal shower. Let me just say that they turned out to be total SHOWSTOPPERS. Humble brag.

 

Flowers bring me joy and symbolize LOVE. We could all do better in spreading a little more love and happiness. The world could use it. So, build yourself, friend or someone random a beautiful Fall bouquet this weekend and follow my tips below. :)
  
Jefferson Lane Tips:

 

·        1. Trim your beauties (on a slant). I typically cut at least 1” off of each stem to ensure that the flowers suck up the water they need to survive.
2. In creating the arrangements, you will need green floral foam or coated chicken wire. Both mediums create stability for your centerpiece. When using green floral foam, make sure to pre-soak the foam beforehand.
3. Start with greenery, then layer in your statement flowers (personal favorite: David Austin garden roses). Don’t be afraid to mix colors and textures. Contrast can make for the most unique and beautiful arrangements.

Stitch & B$tch




Stitching and b$tching - a new obsession of mine. Sewing is making a comeback, but in a different way and with a different demographic, Generation Y. The traditional "Home Sweet Home" cross-stitch pattern that was once hanging in your mother's kitchen isn't all that popular anymore. Instead, "Home of where the Fart is" and pop culture references that better resonate with Generation Y are the... Continue reading
