Color Me Friday: Black & White

Color Me Friday: Black & WhiteInstead of sharing my favorite links for the week, I thought I’d mix things up a bit and get color coded. And although my heart typically swoons for all things color, these black and white DIYS are not to be overlooked. Plus any of these projects can be completed over the weekend, while still leaving you time to binge on Netflix and popcorn. Seriously, what’s not to love about that?!

Hump Day Giveaway: Bonlook

Win a pair of glasses to Bonlook!Happy Wednesday! Even though it’s not quite the weekend, I thought it would be fun to celebrate today with a little giveaway to Bonlook! I recently got new glasses from them and am in love, so why not share the goodness?!

If I could have a jewelry box full of different prescriptions glasses I totally would, but they aren’t always affordable. I think that’s what initially drew me to Bonlook– the frames are under $100 and are completely modern and stylish. I’m wearing these frames, but they also carry men’s styles for all the gentlemen out there.

Win a pair of glasses to Bonlook!

And now for the fun part, the Giveaway Details!

Contest is 0pen to US & Canada residents only. Winner, chosen at random, get one free pair of Bonlook eyeglasses. Ends March 3rd, 2015 at 5:00pm PST. Enter below!

8 DIY Washi Tape Projects

8 DIY Washi Tape Projects

If there’s one thing I learned from this Instagram post is that we all have an addiction to washi tape. And rightly so, it’s pretty much the stuff dreams are made of! You can get it in just about any color or pattern and it’s removable (which means the possibilities are endless). These eight must-try diys are a great place to start if you’re looking for more ways to bring washi into your life!

30 Minute Wall Art DIY

Time: 30 minutes
Materials: paper, scissors, brushes, canvas, paint

30 Minute Wall Art DIYValentine’s Day may be long over, but my love for all things heart shaped is still going strong. After rounding up these diy wall art projects a while back, I decided that I’m well overdue for making some of my own. Even if you’re not a fine artist, as long as you have thirty minutes, you’ll still be able to make this wall art!

DIY 30 Minute Wall Art

30 Minute Wall Art DIYIf you don’t have a heart stencil at home you can easily make one by folding a piece of paper in half and cutting out half of a heart, just as you did when you were making Valentine’s as a kid. Lightly trace the shape on your canvas with a pencil.

To make sure your outside lines are smooth, I recommend lining your shape with a smaller brush before filling in with paint.
