{ Gift It } DIY Hand Warmers

Forget Valentine’s Day and remember Galentine’s Day. It’s the fictional holiday created by Amy Poehler’s character on Parks & Recreation and it’s a day to celebrate your gals. Here’s a gift idea the ladies in your life will LOVE. The tutorial linked was found via Pinterest and created by graphic designer/mommy blogger Rae Ann Kelly, but I originally got the idea over the holiday when my friend stayed with me and had a set of hand warmers that someone DIYed for her – so thoughtful!

People go nuts for DIY gifts, especially when they’re awesome and these are. They don’t stay warm quite as long as a purchased heat pack but do the trick and cost little money and time to create. They’re great cold AMs on the commute or chilly PMs on the couch.

{ Interview } Tips On Fashion, Blogging & Dream Chasing

It’s getting to that point where people stop saying Happy New Year, but we’re not quite there so let me say it once more, Happy New Year! You may notice things look a little different around here. Sometimes I get the itch for change and nothing can stop me. When I was a kid I’d rearrange the furniture in my bedroom and pretty much every other room in the house. My parents would come home or wake up and be like, ” when did you do this?” I do this at my place now, remix my wardrobe and how I do my makeup, and so the blog sometimes also needs an impromptu upgrade. It wasn’t really impromptu. It was planned but happened sooner than scheduled.

Speaking of sooner than planned, the creation of this blog happened in a similar fashion. SkinnyAffair.com recently asked me about how the blog came about, my tips to aspiring bloggers, what’s in my bag and more. It was a lot of fun answering the interviewer’s questions as SA is the blog of Melissa Funtanilla, who recently celebrated her first year blogging at Trend Hungry!

I did the interview a little while ago so it was cool to go back and read it. It’s reminded me of two things that have been important in my journey and I’d like to be mindful of this year.
