I picked up a few of these blank iphone cases and have been playing around with them. A few weeks ago, we tried covering a few in gold leaf and paint – and I love the way they turned out! You could make them any way you want (even put someone’s monogram in gold leaf!)
After the 50th person asked me to make a tutorial based off of this amazing Anthropologie tablecloth we decided to take a stab at it. I have the original tablecloth (they no longer sell the pink version) and the quality and craftsmanship is gorgeous. But if you can’t swing the hefty price tag here is how to make a decent knock off.
We scored a hard-to-get reservation to Havasupai next week. If you haven’t heard of it, Havasupai Falls are these huge beautiful sets of waterfalls at the bottom of the Grand Canyon on an Indian Reservation. We used to go in high school and college a lot and it is amazing. You go for 4 or 5 days, camp, hike, swim in the clear blue pools and go cliff jumping. It is like a little hidden oasis in the middle of the hot desert. The only catch is it is a little tricky to get there. You can backpack the 12 miles in (the start point is a five hour drive from Las Vegas or Phoenix) or they have a helicopter service that flies in and out every few days. Once you get there the campgrounds are really affordable but you usually have to call in February to book them. We miraculously got some last month after a someone else cancelled theirs. I’ve been planning my packing list which includes a swimsuit and sunscreen (That’s all I need, right?) Here are some of the items I’ve been browsing from Target. I can’t wait to jump into those crystal blue pools! Have you ever been to Havasupai?

Here is an easy tutorial to make Watercolor Party Hats. Watercolor is fun to work with because it doesn’t need to be perfect. Down below you’ll find our tips for getting the best, perfectly imperfect strokes. Every hat will be a little different, and that’s what makes them so fun. You can paint these in colors to match your party or just in a rainbow variety.
