Back To School Wrapping Paper

by Kathleen Ballos

Remember the classic Pink Pearl eraser? That’s what inspired this DIY back to school wrapping paper. I loved shopping for school supplies when I was a kid (I still do actually!) so I thought it would be fun to make these little packages of goodies for your kids to open the morning before they go back to school. Maybe the surprise will make the end of summer a little easier?

Target Room Essentials

Like just about every other person I know I love Target! So when I got a chance to check out Target’s new Room Essentials line I said “yes please.” They asked me to share a few of my favorite pieces below, but you can find everything here. I like that the new styles and colors feel so fresh and modern. The patterns on these sheets are amazing, and I can’t wait to use this lamp in my bedroom. And a huge bonus: everything is super affordable. It’s a great way to freshen up your house for a new season without spending a ton of money.

Gemvara Giveaway

I’ve got a great giveaway today! Have you heard of Gemvara? It is a super easy way to buy customizable jewelry. They have a great selection and the process is super easy.  Once I picked out a few, I could totally customize them using 20 different gemstones and 9 different metals. And there is no stress about buying them sight unseen because Gemvara offers 101-day returns (even on customized and engraved pieces.) They make all of the jewelry in New York and the shipping is super fast. I ended up customizing the Micropave Band for myself – I loved the classic look of the diamonds & gold band. But the Zoe Band with black diamonds also caught my eye. It’s an easy way to get unique jewelry at a great price.
