You’re probably thinking, “I’ve already seen this! EVERYONE is doing it!” 💁 That may be so, but *I* haven’t done it yet, and not all of you read the same blogs and see all the same Pins, so maybe this blog post will have some helpful, new information, even if it’s only new to one of you!😂
A few years ago I showed y’all how I “marbleized” my office magnetic boards and updated an old CD rack to live a new life as a shoe rack using marble contact paper. Since then, the contact paper I loved so much has been discontinued, so this “marblizing” DIY does contain a new project, as well as a link to some currently available marble contact paper!
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of entertaining a group of incredible women for a Progressive Brunch. A progressive meal or “Safari Supper” is made of successive courses prepared and eaten at the residence of different hostesses. This involves consumption of one course at each location. Each of us ladies prepared a part of traditional brunch and Ubered from each of our houses to the next, after each course, enjoying the company and styling of each person’s take on a brunch tablescape!
My house was the first stop and I hosted the Mimosa and fruit course! I wanted to share my tablescape with you because I have to show you how easy it is to design a party table without spending a ton of money on theme décor. Every element of the design are DIYs I’ve blogged about previously with a few drugstore Easter isle props thrown in!
I know I’ve created a bunch of tech wallpapers for y’all recently but I wanted to do something a little different for this month’s freebie using the zebra motif from January’s download! One of my favorite things to DIY is artwork for my house. It’s so easy to customize the perfect piece when I’m in charge of the design! Last week I made this adorable Zebra print using my favorite illustrated clip art and had to share with y’all! (See inspiration for this design here, here & here)
Who else has a love / hate relationship with Target? Last night I was browsing, killing time before meeting with a client, and I fully spent 1.5 hours combing through the store and I didn’t even make it to athletic or outdoor sections (that should go to show you just how much there was to look at)! Shockingly I walked out only having spent $51.47, which is a feat in and of itself, considering I haven’t been in a Target for months.
I was really impressed to see the collab collections they’re currently offering (Bauble Bar, Who What Wear, Oh Joy & Nate Berkus) and upcoming projects (Victoria Beckham & a WINE BAR?!). A trip to Target has always been a “treat” for me and the 5 years I lived thousands of miles away from a Target I was more than fine with learning to do without it (when one has Paris in their backyard it’s not difficult to forget everything else). After spending all that time away from stores I had been accustomed to frequenting I realized something startling: Target is not necessary! But it embodies so much of what we love about shopping in America: Pretty, convenient and essentially unnecessary, but OH SO FUN!
