Junky Fix: DIY Home Storage with Mason Jars

Here is a quick tip featuring mason jars! Before you decide to toss old jars out, use them to hold some of your day-to-day necessities! I personally use this chic and cheap storage option to store loose buttons, cotton swabs, cotton pads, loose change, and make-up sponges. You can easily convert these cuties to hold any little knick knack. You can purchase a case of mason jars at Walmart for $17.98.

Happy Decorating!

As Fashion Ages: Ashley's Birthday

So we just finished celebrating Ashley's Birthday. She isn't the type to enjoy the spot light ,so this year like many others ,we kept her birthday low key upon her request. Her husband planned a surprise dinner at her favorite pizza restaurant, Anna's Pizza (shot out to the cook for  fixing an amazing Margarita Pizza). Her close family attended and the night was filled with laughs and childhood stories. I was going to post a few embarrassing childhood moments that were told before she arrived, but she has so many on me I don't want her to leak those to the public. The night ended with a bang and the next day a few friends got together for happy hour at Cha Cha's Mexican Cantina . You can never go wrong with Mexican food, plus $0.50 tacos and a few drinks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!But needless to say, her birthday was celebrated with the people that truly love her along with but not limited to a few drinks and good laughs !!!!!!!!!!!!

Ashley doesn't like regular birthday cake, so I bought her favorite coconut pie and made her favorite cookies. This was the turn out. Tasty if I may add!!!!!!!!

The best Margarita Pizza

Happy Hour at Starbucks!

 This is not my picture

One of my spring and summer loves is Starbucks. My favorite drinks are a Grande Java Chip Frappuccino or a Grande Vanilla Bean Frappuccino with a chocolate drizzle, ill add some whipped cream if I’m feeling risky! A refreshing frap on a nice day always make the day that much better especially for those summer road trips. Right now, Starbucks has there Half Price Happy Hour special going on starting May 4th thru May 13th from 3-5pm.

As soon as I received the email notification that H&M would be coming out with a collaboration with iconic Fashion Director Anna Dello Russo I headed straight for the blogs. Unfortunately, I found very little information on the collection. So, I thought I post a glimpse on our little blog. This is what H&M says we have to look forward to: "Unabashedly glamorous, precious and playful, the range is an expression of Dello Russo’s taste for ornamentation. Available from October 4, 2012, at the peak of the global fashion weeks tour, in around 140 stores worldwide and online. The collection features jewelry, sunglasses, shoes, bags and a trolley allowing H&M customers uniqueness at an affordable price"

Aren't you just as excited as I am?
