holi-DIY emoji ornaments





It's no surprise that Christmas is one of our
favorite times of the year. 
This year, we wanted to spice up our decor
game, so we came up with this FUN and
(semi) easy Emoji ornament DIY project!
Why not mix our favorite holiday with
our favorite faces.

You will need:

Clear Ornaments
Yellow Spray Paint 
small painbrushes
various paint color (for emoji faces)
ornament hooks
pencil (if needed for outlining)
Protective Sealant Spray

OR, if you are really lucky, you can
find Plain Yellow Ornaments. Our local stores
unfortunately were fresh out, so we went this route!


To make:

Spray pain your clear ornaments with the yellow
spray paint. Allow them to dry for amount of time
specified on the can. If needed, give the ornaments a second
coat before you begin to paint your faces.
Once the spray paint is dry, pull up images of your
favorite emojis. Depending on your skill level,
trace the emoji face onto your ornament. OR, if this
is not necessary, start painting the faces onto the ornament.
When you are satisfied with your emoji face, 
seal the deal with your protective spray to avoid
any chipping!

Happy HOLI-DIY!

Tunesday: Rolling Stones







 The week after a holiday has us singing the blues.
 Just in time for a remedy is a song from the upcoming
 rhythm and blues album Blue & Lonesome, Hate to See You Go
by the Rolling Stones. Not only is this exciting because
it is the first album from the legends in over 10 years,
but we are already addicted to the sweet sound and are
 keeping all of our fingers crossed for a Bonnaroo 2017
headliner spot...I guess we could settle for a
 Blue & Lonesome World Tour.

Mom Jeans {for the win}




Back around Halloween, we planned to
do an 80's inspired shoot which required us to
purchase some mom jeans. The shoot ended up
falling through, but the mom jeans totally 
did not! We became OBSESSED with them.
lucky for us, it looks like we aren't the only
ones trying to bring this style back to life.
Not only are the ridiculously comfortable, but the
are fantastic with just about everything. The high
rise fit alots for a tucked blouse, or even just
a basic tee, crop tops,  or for winter months, 
paired with a slouchy sweater. Literally,
 anything goes.

We are DOWN with the mom jeans!
