Apple & Cheese Quesadilla


Bikini Bites: Apple & Cheese Quesadilla

Good Morning!

Most of you know I can’t stand onions…unless they are fried or cooked so well that you can hardly taste them.

And if they aren’t you can bet I will be picking them off of whatever it is I’m eating :)

I know it’s childish…but I HATE onions with a passion!

So when Danielle told me about a new quesadilla recipe she made featuring apples {yum!}, wine {love it!}, cheese {gotta have it!} and onions {hold the phone – not trying it!}…I was more than a little hesitant to eat it.

But I can’t share a recipe without actually trying it myself. I knew it was time to suck it up and take one for the team.

{Looking back now I can say I’m glad I did!}

Here’s today’s Bikini Bites recipe:

How-To Make Your Own Shower Curtains

Good Morning!

As you know I am participating in the One Room Challenge 6-week link party.

{Or if you are not sure what I’m rambling on about click here :)}

One of our tasks for this project was to make a shower curtain.

Now I know you are probably thinking “they sell lots of shower curtains in stores these days” and you are correct…

But for this remodel we decided to have an extra long shower curtain to create the ambiance of a spa, and make the bathroom appear larger.

So DIY shower curtain it is!

Halloween Home Tour


Halloween Home Tour

Good Morning!

One thing you might not know about me is that I am a big scaredy-cat.

Like huge. No joke.

So it seems weird that during Halloween I love decorating with spooky, slightly gothic décor.

I think it’s because purple and black just go so well together…and if something scary is decked out in glitter it makes it less scary, right!?

I’ll let you be the judge :)

Welcome to the Purple Palace’s Halloween Home Tour!

Bathroom Remodel Project: Week 2


Last week I introduced you to my sister’s bathroom that I decided to sign-up for the 6 week One Room Challenge.

I know…I’m such a good sister :)

She’s no dummy though…the only way I could use her remodel is if I agreed to help her out.


So you’ve seen the before pictures, now it’s time to show you the inspiration behind this remodel!

Creative Halloween Costumes


Creative Halloween Costumes


Halloween is on my Top 5 list of favorite holidays.

For. Sure.

If I could wear a costume everyday I’d probably do it…ok not really but I’d definitely consider doing it maybe 10-25 days out of the year :)

Back in my early twenties I used to spend money buying costumes, but that can get expensive. And who really wants to show up to a Halloween party dressed in the same costume as 5 other people.

Not me!

For the last several Halloweens I’ve gone the DIY route. It is cheaper and oh so much more fun.

Today I thought I’d share 4 of my favorite costumes with you for some early Halloween Inspiration!
