My Mani ~ Holographic

Hi lovelies!  Today's mani is full-on holographic.  I mean, BAM!  I am so in love with this color, the holo-ness of it, that it's inspired me to do a holo week here on SnS!  Can you imagine?  Yup, there's going to be DIYs, manis (like this one!), beauty products, and of course fashion!  {Click to keep reading!}

DIY ~ Camouflage Pocket T-Shirt

Hi lovelies!  Yesterday's DIY was a shirt for my daughter (remember this DIY mix tape tshirt?), so today I have to do one for the dude!  He has a couple of plain tshirts that could use some jazzing up, so I decided to do that by adding a camouflage pocket!  So fun, right?  And this again isn't just for kids... I absolutely foresee myself doing this to some of mine as well!  {Click for the how-to!}

My Mani ~ Essie 'For The Twill Of It'

Hi lovelies!  I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!  I'm just trying to stay dry over here, it's been raining nonstop for the last week, which is quite rare for CO.  Normally we get an hour's worth of rain at most in a week.  Crazy.  Luckily, we have been safe in an area that hasn't been hit by the devastating flooding.  So at Target the other day, I found the last bottle of 'For the Twill of it', part of Essie's newest collection.  I was so stoked, because it was always sold out everywhere!  {Click to keep reading!}

M&J Trimming ~ Project DIY #MJProjectDIY

Hi lovelies!  As I'm sure you know, I *love* M&J Trimming.  I consider it my Mecca, although I've never been, I do hope to make a pilgrimage there one day!  (Anyone want to sponsor that trip? LOL!)  I was so excited to take part in the M&J Trimming Blogger Challenge recently, and of course was so stoked to hear about its launching of a monthly subscription box - Project DIY.  For $30 a month, you'll receive the supplies and tutorials to create 2-3 accessories inspired by the runway and current trends!  All the projects are created by a super talented team of designers at M&J Trimming.  I was lucky enough to receive the press kit for the inaugural box, themed 'Autumn in New York'.  {Click to keep reading!}

Be Yourself, Together with #TargetWedding + DIY Tassel Dinner Napkins

Hi lovelies!  With wedding season upon us again, it's time to think about just what do we get the happy couple.  It can be so stressful, especially when you have two people that are so different!  When Target asked me to post about its Target Wedding, its Target Wedding Catalog and its 'Be Yourself, Together' idea, I was more than happy to!  It's about when two people join forces while celebrating their individuality, think about two very different Target products that, when gifted together, add up to something more – just like our couples.  If I were to get married (yikes!), I would absolutely register at Target. I mean, there's everything everyone needs there, and you can really personalize your registry by including items for each person, rather than what just one person likes/wants.

Take my boyfriend and I for example.  His taste is very classic, simple, and timeless.  Mine is more classic but with a twist!  {Click to keep reading!}

DIY ~ Easy Chain Link Bracelet

Hi lovelies!  Today's DIY is an easy one.  We see the beautiful chunky chain link bracelets everywhere, but it seems hard to find the right chain to make one, amiright?  Rather than shell out too much on such a simple piece, buy the right chain and make a few instead! {Click for the how-to!}

Mani Monday ~ Faux Shiny Matte

Hi lovelies!  Today's mani is a pretty neon matte finish, using China Glaze's neons I recently picked up at Sally's.  After the base coat, though, I got to thinking if I could maybe mimic a faux shine on the matte without using a topcoat.  Well, I think it works, it's a subtle trompe l'oeil, and I love it!  {Click to keep reading!}

DIY ~ Vintage Button Charm Bracelet

Hi lovelies!  I hope your weekend was fabulous!  My mom recently sent me a box of some random yet absolutely amazing goodies, and included was a huge bag full of vintage buttons!  Inspired by this coach bracelet (no longer available), I knew I could easily recreate it!  {Click for the how-to!}

DIY ~ One Direction Charm Bracelet

Hi lovelies!  So my daughter is a huge 1D fan (confession: I may like some of their songs too!), so I had to do a 1D DIY right?  She has been getting so many compliments on her bracelet, all her friends want to know where they can buy one, and she proudly tells them: "My mom made it for me!"  Want to see how I made it?  {Click for the how-to!}

My September Julep Maven Bombshell Box ~ Unwrapped

Hi lovelies!  I just received my September Julep Maven box yesterday and can't wait to share it with you!    If you're not familiar with the Julep Maven box, you take a quiz to determine your profile, and for $19.99 a month, you get nail polish (and beauty products!) from the higher end Julep brand (sold at Sephora), with a retail value of at least double (usually more than that!) {the polishes alone retail for $14 each}. If you haven't, click on one of my links and sign up! And right now, sign up and enter promo code FREEBOX to get your first box for free, just pay $3.99 shipping. The best part is that they show you what you'll be getting each month, so you have a 5 day window to either switch to a different profile (there's 5!) or skip the month altogether and not be charged. Genius! {Click to keep reading!}

My Outfit ~ Boho Natural + The BEST Strapless Bra, EVER!

Hi lovelies!  Can you believe it?  Gasp!  An outfit post!  It's been quite a while now, and to be quite honest with you, I don't feel that my outfits as of late are anything worth taking pics of, never mind posting on the interwebz.  You see, I've been unemployed for a few months now and my days consist of hanging with the kiddos, trying to find a job, and feeling sad for myself.  I digress.  I bought this gorgeous maxi last year at Target (dude it was on clearance for $10!  It is an XL, so it's rather big on me, but I keep telling myself I'll alter it, in the meantime I just keep pulling it up!) and find myself wearing it rather often, with flip flops, sandals, pretty much whatever I feel like putting on!  {Click to keep reading!}

We got 'Licensed to Spill' with Mohawk Flooring SmartStrand Carpeting

Hi lovelies!  It's no secret that I have two kiddos, luckily for me they are older now (my youngest is now 8 and my oldest will be 12 in about 2 weeks!) but that doesn't mean they still don't make messes!  The condo I live in includes its original carpeting (I think it's at least 20 years old!) and is in a not so great state... if only I could get my landlord to put this stuff in!

I first learned about Mohawk Flooring's Smartstrand Stain Resistant Carpet (they're the world's largest flooring manufacturer!) at this weekend's Taste of Colorado in Downtown Denver.  Sam's No. 3. was there serving (free!) breakfast burritos with green chili sauce in the License to Spill booth.  More on that in a bit.

My lucky little dude got to make a mess!

Mohawk Flooring, #LicenseToSpill, SmartStrand Carpet

He was armed with squirt bottles of blue gatorade, soy sauce, and red wine and told to go to town on the carpet square.  And he made quite the mess!  {Click to keep reading!}

Birchbox vs. Glossybox vs. Ipsy Glam Bag ~ August Edition

Hi lovelies!  As I just posted my Glossybox review the other day, it's now time for the head to head (to head!).  Curious how the 3 most popular beauty subscription boxes (and bag!) stack up?  Not sure which one (or two or three!) you want to subscribe to?  Have no fear, my dear, as I bring you August's edition of Birchbox vs. Glossybox vs. Ipsy Glam Bag!  {Click to see how they stack up!}
