8 Spring Wreath Ideas

Good Morning…and Happy Spring!

Even though the weather forecast calls for snow this week in Indiana we all know spring officially started on Friday {hello Mother Nature can we get up to speed please?!}. So what better way to kick off the start of a new season than with some DIY spring wreath ideas!

I mean maybe if we all get inspired and start to spread some spring vibes at our front door it will keep the colder temperatures {and snow} away for good!

Here’s hoping anyways…now onto the wreaths :)

March Madness & The IU Basketball Experience

When you live in Indiana {and have grown up with a basketball obsession} March Madness is kinda a big deal. Now…I know this isn’t a sports blog in any sense of the word, but when it comes to basketball, tournaments and the month of March I can’t help but get roped into all the excitement…or should I say madness :)

You may or may not have heard that my beloved Indiana Hoosiers made it to the big dance this year. Thank goodness! So, in honor of their game today {at 2:45PM EST to be exact} I find it only fitting to dedicate today’s post to my favorite basketball team, and share a little bit more about the IU basketball experience.

Project: Teeth Whitening Part Two


A few weeks ago I talked about having braces, how I developed a slight teeth obsession and my latest beauty project…whitening my teeth. Fun, girly and completely personal stuff :)

For this project I am partnering with Smile Brilliant, and last time showed you how I created my custom-fitted teeth whitening trays. Today I wanted to give you a little update on my teeth whitening treatments…and breakdown the process a bit further for those of you that may be thinking about giving this a try yourself {which I’d highly recommend ;)}

Wedding Save the Dates from Shutterfly

Good Morning!

So as you know my sister, Kelli has been busy brainstorming ideas, and putting a budget together for her wedding. Even though she won’t be getting married until 2016, it’s never too early to start covering your bases…and she is just a really organized planner!

One of the many things she has started looking into are save the date cards. And I can tell you…there are lots of pretty options out there! We {because I get to help plan, remember!?} found some gorgeous save the dates on Shutterfly, and the kind folks there sent me a few samples of their collection to share with you today.

Getting the Most Out of a Bridal Show

Good Morning!

I have to admit…one thing that excites me most about helping my sissy plan her upcoming wedding is attending bridal shows. She’s all about numbers and budgets…and I’m all like “when do we get to look at fancy decorations and sample some cake!?”

So when we attend bridal shows we get the best of both worlds…lots of numbers and lots of samples of cake :)

But bridal shows are really the perfect place to gather tons of resourceful information…that is if you do it correctly. Being the veteran bridal show attendees that we are quickly becoming I thought I’d share a few tips we have learned thus far.

A Spring Trend


I don’t know about you, but I am over winter.

O.V.E.R. I.T.

Don’t get me wrong I love the snow and change of the seasons…but eventually it comes to a point when one is sick of wearing the same sweaters and boots day-after-day. And I for one reached this point about 2 weeks ago.

Let’s start to focus on spring now, shall we!?

One spring trend I’m currently obsessing over is the slip-on sneaker, so what better time to start talking about this trend then now {even if it feels like -20 below zero here in Indiana today…brrr}!
