DIY Candy Cane Wreath

DIY Candy Cane WreathOne of my favorite projects that I made for our home this year is this candy cane wreath! Since we live in an apartment building, and can’t have anything on our front door (dumb, I know), I thought it would be fun to bring a little cheer to the doors inside. And get this, it only takes 10 minutes to make, and requires little skill! I’d even bet money that you could make this after a few glasses of spiked egg nog.

They may seem like a simple detail, but it’s one that will make you smile on the days you decide to skip the sweatpants and dress up instead. Here’s how: Continue reading…

DIY Botanical Facial Steam

DIY Botanical Facial SteamI love winter as much as the next person. Snow days, cute scarfs, hot cocoa, all great. But one aspect that tends to be a bit more unfavorable is the dry winter air. The lack of moisture just wreaks havoc on my skin, but one regiment that I found helps is a botanical facial steam!
