DIY Color Dipped Luggage TagSummer travel is just the best part about summer, don’t you think?! Aside from ice cream and patio cocktails that is.

Before leaving I thought it would be fun to make a colorful luggage tag. If you have any other trips planned before fall sets in, and you want to make one for yourself, here’s how: Continue reading…

Friday LinksHappy Friday friends! And what better way to kick off the weekend than with a colorful roundup?! It’s hard to believe that fall going to start slowly creeping in, so I’m doing my best to hold on to these vibrant colors while I can.

Fun in the Sun: Summer Playlist
