The Laundress Holiday Collection & SoHo Flagship Store Opening

I immediately fell in love with The Laundress brand after trying their Fabric Fresh Spray in September and have been choosing their products for my laundry care needs ever since.

DIY Anthropologie Inspired Monogram Confetti Yarn Ornaments

In 2013 while I was visiting family in the States I got to check out Anthro’s latest ornament assortment for the Holidays.

When I saw the confetti dotted yarn ornaments (below) I loved the concept but wasn’t willing to pay $8 for essentially 20ft of yarn. I knew this was one Anthro item I could DIY myself with pleasing results. The best thing about…

6 DIY Pom Pom Holiday Crafts

Don’t ask me why, but pom poms are strangely therapeutic to make! You can whip out a dozen of them while watching the latest episode of your favourite TV show and pretty much create anything you want. So grab yourself a sharp pair of scissors and let’s get started!   The small poms are perfect for topping gifts, festive napkin holders, key rings, necklaces, cocktail style rings and earrings. Update a boring packing with twine, poms, tassels (you could use tissue paper, foil paper or yarn!) and these FREE printable paper bows! The medium poms are adorable as shoe clips…
