first, there was the launch of phillip lim for target. the store was open for a total of five minutes before every single handbag was taken.

thankfully not before we got our hands on all three of these.

have you ever gotten a trenta sized beverage at starbucks? yeah, us either. until the barista mentioned we had a free beverage and we might as well get the biggest size. [J] definitely wasn’t mad.

and lastly, I went to my first bridal dress appointment ..

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.
