Hi Beauties!

Today I want to share my latest DIY project with you. In a previous post , I showed you guys these DIY framed letters that I made for my daughter’s room.

Now that my goddaughter, Skylar, is getting her own room soon, I just HAD to make sure that she had some customized wall art! I mean, a Princess room really isn’t a Princess room unless her name is displayed proudly above her castle, right?

Luckily, I had enough time to film the entire project this time so I could show you guys how I did them from start to finish. Most of the items are from Hobby Lobby, Dollar Tree, and Walmart! Click the video below to watch the tutorial!



Not only is this a very easy and inexpensive to add decor to a child’s room, you could also use these letters as wall art in a family room, classroom, or office. Hmmm, I’m getting more ideas as I type! Let me know what you guys think of this project!


Pretty (No Carve) DIY Glam Pumpkins

Who else loves fall as much as I do? I mean seriously how could you not obsess over cozy sweaters, hot beverages, and don’t even get me started on pumpkin spice everything!

Speaking of pumpkins, after London and I went pumpkin picking I thought we’d try to do something other than carving this year. Even though fresh pumpkin is a lovely ingredient for fall recipes.I think I can skip the mess and just settle for the canned.

This time we ditched the knives and reached for the glitter to create a more glamorous touch to the season, and boy did we have fun! London really enjoyed herself…I mean REALLY REALLY enjoyed herself. I mean like glitter glued to her legs enjoyed herself.

In total, we had 6 pumpkins to decorate. I decided to create some Alanna Foxx originals while Lon headed straight for the sparkles. I’d say we did a pretty good job!

I started off by spray painting the stems of each pumpkin. Making sure to tape around the base of the stem, covering the pumpkin with tissue paper to protect from the spray paint. If you want to paint the entire pumpkin one color skip the protection and spray the entire pumpkin. Let that dry for about 30 minutes.

Next, do the opposite, protect the stem as you spray paint the pumpkin with two coats of spray paint. Allow to dry for about an hour.

To add glitter: Coat the pumpkin in spray adhesive and sprinkle with glitter. Sprinkle a little or sprinkle a lot you can even do two coats if you like. Seal the glitter in with clear spray sealer.

(My special little helper)

To add bling letters: Sketch out the letters you would like to be written on the pumpkin, a light market or highlighter is perfect for this. Using a glue gun apply rhinestones one by one, tracing the letters written on the pumpkin.

There you have it! This project was super easy and fun! All the items that I used will be listed below. Don’t forget to tag and tweet me your pictures if you decide to do one of these ideas, I would love to see how they come out!

*Products used
– Spray Paint (black, white, and gold)
– Glitter (both fine and regular)
Washi tape* Be mindful of harmful chemicals when using spray paint, make sure the area is well-ventilated. 


Remember, pumpkins are fun to decorate all season, NOT just for Halloween. Happy Fall! ♥

Decorate: DIY Framed Letters

I LOVE to decorate and anyone that knows me knows that I love finding new and creative decor that I can D-I-Y for my home.

We recently moved into a new home where London’s room is not only bigger but a much different shade of pink color than it was at our old house. That means I have plenty of room to DIY it up!

When London was first born my mom bought her these super cute pink glittery letters that spelled out her name, but I procrastinated with putting them up and my teething baby chewed them up pretty badly. Needless to say, I couldn’t use those anymore but I did want to find a creative way to incorporate her name into her new room design.

Browsing the isles of Michaels…or my second home as some like to call it, I came across some small wooden letters, and you guessed it, they were on SALE. So naturally, I picked up all the letters in Miss London’s name and headed to the spray painting isle.

Originally I was going to paint the letters pink and hang them on the walls by bow-tied ribbon, however I was able to find some cheap frames at Dollar Tree and I thought the letters would look SO much cuter in the frames.

I spray painted the frames & letters and used scrapbooking paper as the background. Once everything was dry I put the frames back together (with the scrapbooking paper) and hot glued the letters and ribbon on.

This is how they came out. Super adorable!

Holiday Decor : 33 Fabulous Christmas Tree Decorating Ideas

Every year, like clockwork, my family would decorate our christmas tree in red and green balls, gold garland, and white string lights. So naturally, being that this is my first Christmas away from home, the first thing that I put in my cart were red & green ornaments. It wasn’t until my bestfriends mom asked me what my color theme was for Christmas this year that it dawned on me…there WERE OTHER COLORS that I could decorate in and still feel the Christmas-ey feeling! 
I thought back to when I was a little girl and I used to vistit my aunts house for the holidays. I remembered her decorating her tree in blue and silver ornaments and even going so far as to have a tree with WHITE limbs one year. I thought that was the most fabulous tree ever! Being that this is my first year ever decorating for christmas on my own, I thought I’d find some inspiration to share with you all!

Enjoy 🙂

I think I’ll hold off on the white tree this year, there are SO many beautiful designs that incorporate the color blue! I think I’m gonna go for the ice blue, silver, and white theme 🙂
Which color combinations are YOUR favorite for this holiday season?
