Something about 2020 has me starting Christmas early, but the good news for you is that I can share all of my inspiration and research before most of you get your trees up! Now that we have moved up to Colorado and are surrounded by snowy woods, I have been really inspired to go for a natural and more neutral Christmas tree. We got all of our supplies in and quickly got to work decorating! What do you think?Continue reading “How to Decorate a Natural Christmas Tree”
One of my favorite TV shows from this year was Schitt’s Creek… ok… it’s been a favorite of mine for a while! It’s a simple premise for a show, but the characters are just so incredible and the writing cracks me up constantly. With numerous Emmy’s and thousands of fans, I’m not alone. That’s why this year I decided to dress up as one of the best, and most outrageous, characters from the show – Moira Rose! Continue reading “DIY Schitt’s Creek Moira Rose Costume”
No matter where you live in the US, it’s safe to say we have adopted mask culture. I’m personally happy to wear a mask. It keeps other people safe from me if I am potentially sick and don’t know it, and me safe from others if they happen to be sick. It’s an easy way to take care of one another and ourselves, and there is no reason we can’t make them a part of our ensembles!Continue reading “My Two Favorite, No-Pattern DIY Face Masks”
After being in Houston for the last 10ish years, Kyle and I are moving to Colorado! It’s crazy to think that we won’t be in the first city we met in, made so many friends in, went to school in, and have worked in our entire careers, but we are so excited about this next chapter. The lifestyle will be completely different going from a city to essentially right up in the mountains, and I’m pretty sure there is a whole new wardrobe ready to be sewn on my sewing machine once we get up there (hello snow!). We are ready for some outdoor adventures together, and for friends and family to come visit us!
During this quarantine time I have gotten very acquainted with my kitchen. Honestly, I always found cooking to be a little stressful. I grew up baking, so the thought of casually changing recipes based on taste and getting the timing of multiple items spaced out so that everything was hot and ready at the same time kind of gave me anxiety. With all of this time at home, though, it has given me the opportunity to try new recipes, practice new techniques, and generally get comfortable cooking consistently because I have the time and energy to do so (commuting is a real time suck!).

Being cooped up at home feels like the understatement of the century at this point. I like to think of myself as a homebody, but in an effort to truly not expose myself to anyone else, it’s been a full on lock down these days. We have been avoiding the grocery store as much as possible and doing pick up when we really need it. Going down stairs to get the mail from our mailbox at our apartment feels like a journey these days. Because of this, I think we can all agree that our normal day-to-day wardrobe staples have changed. Continue reading “Cutoff Cropped Hoodie Sewing Tutorial”
