cozy night in.

when it comes to winter, I prefer to stay in. especially at night. and now, while the weather is still nice, it is the perfect time to prepare my wardrobe, living room, and kitchen. the snowy nights are coming.

nothing over $27.

[don’t forget your man].

a bottle of peppermint schnapps is always a good idea too. delicious in hot cocoa. [and I’ll be sharing a few cocktail recipes that feature it]. whether we like it or not, the holidays and winter are sneaking up.

happy monday.

DIY gold glitter.

my favorite do-it-yourself projects start at the dollar store.

partially because regardless of the project I have a 50% success rate. and if my supplies are under $5, my failure guilt is very low.

this project is no exception. but thankfully, it ended with success.

our dining room table was in desperate need of an elegant, fun, fall-inspired centerpiece.

[*editor’s note: [J] has been DIY’ing the heck out of our apartment. I felt the need to had to step up my game].

3 plain cream candles. 3 cocktail glasses. and $6 bucks later ..I was well on my way to DIY success.

[tip: use unscented candles in your dining room. you want nothing to take away from the smells coming from your scrumptious food].

all you need is mod podge + glitter.

I went with gold to compliment our dining room decor + the upcoming season: autumn.
