Roasting Garlic 101

Love garlic? This is one of my favorite and easiest ways to prepare garlic. You can use this for your holiday feasts also! Roasted garlic is great to add to mashed potatoes, mac n cheese or just to spread on a piece of bread! Here's how you do it.

Dazzle On!

I love the holidays because it calls for getting together with friends and family to celebrate. Holiday parties are the best because they bring together people for food (my favorite) and we always dress up and be classy (or try to be ;P). Here's some holiday dressing inspiration on my pinterest board.

Cracked Makeup Rescue

This one's for my girls... everyone knows how sad it is when you open up your makeup bag and find this....

Whether it be from accidentally dropping your makeup or from traveling, I think we've all had to deal with a broken eye-shadow palette or blush/bronzer. Here's how you can save it without having to carry it around an a zip-lock. I originally learned how to do this from the Beauty Department check out their tutorial here.

DIY - Bling Chain Bracelet

DIY Bling Chain Stackable Bracelet

Here's a quick and simple DIY project to add to your arm party swag --
Materials needed:
  • large metal chain
  • rhinestone chain
  • large needle
  • embroidery thread
  • jewelry clasp and jump ring
Measure each chain to the length of your wrist, mine is about 5.5" long. Line the two chains up and start "sewing" together the two chains with the embroidery thread. Tie a knot on each end and connect the two ends with a jewelry clasp and jump ring. Now you've got some added bling to your arm.
