In Pinning News…

So every few weeks I thought it would be fun to catch you up with my latest Pinterest obsessions because, as it turns out, I'm a superiorly talented pinner. I wish I could make it a job… Does that mean I should be an editor?! I think yes. Anywho, a few years ago I even won a Rachel Zoe Pinterest contest and besides my wedding day and the birth of my child, it's my proudest moment. You think I'm joking. I'm not.  My handwritten note from Rach is most definitely framed on my dresser… No shame. She's Bananas. BA- NAN- NAS. Moving on, here are my top pins from last week!

sloppy joes[I never actually had a sloppy joe when I was a kid. I mean, ew. But lately they sound delicious. I'm gonna share my own red lentil sliders recipe later this week.]

snickers[Vegan Snickers Ice Cream Bars, literally one of my favorite things in the world pre-veg!! Can't wait to try these. The Minimalist Baker is my hero]grey jacket[This is my top repin of the past 2 weeks. I love the all white with the boxy gray coat. The black bag and nails are perf.]subway[I'm currently obsessed with moving and buying a house. A house, hopefully, full of subway tiles]

Flower Power

A flower crown is a must for any hippie in training! Just ask Pinterest!! Despite my lack of crafting skills I was able to, with the help from a friend, create an inexpensive and super cool flower crown quicker than you can say hippie-dippy-trippy-coachella-petchuli stink. Swearsies

diy-flower crown-coachella- hippie -boho- bohemian[We started by wrapping 2 pieces of raffia wire together to our desired circumference. No idea if that's what it's actually called, but it looks like flower wire wrapped in raffia. You can find it in the silk flower section]

diy-flower crown-coachella- hippie -boho- bohemian[We used wire cutters to keep the sharp edges from scratching.]

diy-flower crown-coachella- hippie -boho- bohemian[We choose 2 different kinds of fake flowers, a main white one and then a smaller beige flower. We took off all of the leaves and some of the white flowers and added smaller beige petals to give it a little somethin' special.]

The finished product!!! For under 10 bucks, I think it's the perfect accessory for a photo shoot, a wedding, or whatever hipster music festival you're heading to next!!! Enjoy!!!

Gold Spray Paint Makes the World Go 'Round

DIY-Coasters-prettyI have this friend, Emily, who thinks you can fix any unsightly home good with gold spray paint. And you know what? I can't argue with that. Gold is the tits. I wanted a new coaster set because the picture coasters [you know you have at least one set hiding in your house] from my wedding weren't quite meshing with my 2013 design sensibilities. Cue Em, "Spray paint that shit gold?" Okay, she didn't say that at all, but it's funnier that way. So she took my coaster holder thingy and sprayed it a matte gold. In my mind she keeps a secret locker full of gold spray paint so she's always prepared just in case something needs a quick spraying. DIY-Paper-Coaster-GoldI removed the beer bottle labels that The Captain had lovingly removed from the picture inserts and added super cute scraps of paper I had in my paper box. Yes, yes. I have a paper box. I have a weakness for expensive and pretty paper. Such a weird obsession because honestly what do you do with a stack of pretty paper? Well I put it in my picture coasters. BOOM. 10 points to Gryffindor for using shit you already have in your house! I'm a virtual budget diy pioneer. Okay, I'm getting carried away. I shouldn't have had that 2nd chai latte. Well here's the finished product! Super easy, super cheap, and  looks tres chic.
