Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs

It is officially Easter Week! N is on a business trip and I have been quite busy this week – I was in a commercial yesterday! (I have always loved acting ever since I was 12 and started taking classes in the 7th grade! The long – all day shoots don’t bother me one bit.. I’ll share some BTS pics on tomorrow’s post!)

I haven’t had time to prepare my house for Easter this year!! There is just so much to do! Luckily, we do not host Easter so I guess it doesn’t matter as much?? But one day, I would love to have it all Eastery … (more…)

DIY: What to do with extra Save-the-Dates (or other paper items)

SO there are 228 days until MY WEDDING! I planned on sharing with you my wedding planning, but I think I am going to save it all for a post series after I get married so I can better evaluate what worked/what didn’t and offer better advice.

Turn a spare bedroom into a Walk-in-Closet

img_6543fThe closer you live to the city, the smaller your yard gets (if you even have one!), the smaller your parking spot gets, (if you’re lucky enough to have one!) the smaller your master bedroom gets and most importantly, the smaller the closet space gets! I was able to live with all the above, minus the closet space! After 3 years of folding and refolding clothes that were all displayed on the guest bed, closing the door from embarrassment of the mess it was when we had company, never being able to find a purse, a shirt, an accessory when I needed it, we decided it was time to invest and turn that guest room into a walk-in closet. We figured that if in the 3 years of owning our condo, we only had a handful of guests stay the night, turning the room into a walk in was a no brainer!
