Memory Lane Mondays

I have been contemplating adding another post day to my current blog line-up for a few months now.  I just could never pinpoint exactly what I wanted to do.  After much deliberation, here it is!  Mondays will be for highlighting nostalgia related to fashion, beauty, etc.  A day where I can share with you things from my pre-blogger life, whether it be outfits, snapshots, etc.  

For the first ever installment, I wanted to share with you this gem of an old photo we recently found while digging through boxes of family photographs.

Useful DIY Tips for Everyday Life: Monkey See, Monkey Do

The general rule of thumb I learned from my mother many years ago (mentioned in this post) is that if you see something you like, you can probably make it yourself...within your skill set, of course.  I'm not going to try and recreate the Sistine Chapel ceiling if I can't paint well, but I may try to copy a cute bracelet I saw on Pinterest, like I did here.  This is the beauty of DIY!  Anything can be inspiration!

Useful DIY Tips for Everyday Life: Buttons

Again, I'm misleading you with something boring, in theory.  However, there are some things I think everyone should know about, and that includes the beauty of buttons.  From fixing a button that has popped off to updating the look of a top by switching them out, this how-to will help.

Beauty Tuesdays: Les Parfums

Here is my perfume philosophy: a scent can make or break the day, so a girl can never have too many to choose from, but stick to the ones that suit your chemistry.
