Ready for Spring #NOTW

Who else is ready for sunny days, slurping on snow cones, and bright colors!




2015 Vison Board Party


Last night I got together with some friends to really think and formulate our goals for the upcoming year. We sipped on some wine, listened to some music, and enjoyed each others company while preparing for 2015. We are ready for a glorious, joyous year; can’t wait to see what blessings bloom.

I have dubbed 2015 The Year of Exploration. For me I want to read more, research more, explore more. I want to travel, learn, and discover. My focus is stepping out of my comfort zone regarding personal, family, work, health, spiritual, and wealth aspects of my life. I am ready to explore what I am capable of and grow to become a well-rounded individual. Let the journey begin…

DIY: Ugly Christmas Sweater

Hello all!

I was recently invited to my first “Ugly Christmas Party.” Hmm what to wear, what to wear??? I couldn’t find an ugly Christmas Sweater for the low so I decided to just make my own. I browsed my favorite thrift store and Pinterest to get some ideas.

This diy is super easy and didn’t take me much time to complete.


  • thrifted sweater (or any sweater you don’t mind painting on)
  • white fabric paint
  • sponge brush
  • reindeer template

The hardest thing with this diy is making the reindeer template. I looked on a picture on the internet and free handed it. I am no kind of artist so I was happy that it came out looking like it is suppose to.


1. Layout your sweater

2. Trace around the reindeer template you made with a pencil or sharpie

3. Take the template off the sweater and fill in with white paint. Don’t forget to go over the sharpie with the paint.

I ended up adding a red bow and some battery operated lights that I found at the Dollar Tree. Everyone loved it.
