Oh my! Sometimes you spy something so cute, you’ve just got to share. This is definitely one of those times. So in LOVE with these little macaron trinket/pill boxes! I thought it would be a great idea to get your girlfriends one of these colorful confections and pair it with a bottle of your favorite hair growth pills. They’re gorgeous and could obviously be served alone as a very chic way to carry whatever tiny things a lady might need.

Tis almost the holiday season, friends! Too often we busy bees are under-prepared for all the parties, all the photos + all the gift giving. This DIY will help us look lovely and stay ahead of schedule.

I was in Anthropologie the other day. I LIVE for that place, but you can easily rack up a major bill… fast. For the last couple years I’ve been buying these sparkly, flower-shaped hair clips. They’re stunning, but they’re $20-30 each. It’s cute to make a cluster of them behind a topknot or above a chignon, but it would cost a fortune if you bought that many. Let’s save some money and make them ourselves, shall we? This way you’re ahead of the gal pal gift-giving game and/or you’ll have something around that you can quickly clip in your hair for some sparkle when you’re running behind for a holiday fête! Here we go! (more…)
