Mermaid Avocado Toast

Toast + Avocado + Cream Cheese 
'Mermaid' for each other!

Avocado Toast is one of our favorite
quick and easy breakfast go-to's so
we decided, why not make our mornings
a little more magical!

You will need:

Whole Grain Bread (or whatever you desire)
Whipped Cream Cheese
Food Coloring
Edible "accessories"

To prepare, we seperated about 1 1/2 TBS. of cream
cheese into small saucer dishes and then added about
a dot of food coloring to each. Add more to make
it to your desired coloring!
Mix Well.

Toast your bread slices. Allow them to cool
before spreading on your cream cheese.
We put down a thing non-colored base
of cream cheese, and then slowly added in 
the colored cream cheese.

You can play around with all sorts of designs!
Ombre, tie-dye, whatever you're feeling!

 Slice up your avocado, or mash it if you prefer,
and add it to your bread!

Then, get creative with it! We added some star
sprinkles and bread crumbs to look like sand!

If you don't want to use food coloring, and are looking
for a more natural way to color your food,
check out these alternatives!

 beet juice (pink)
 turmeric root (yellow and orange)
 chlorophyll drops (green)
freeze-dried blueberry powder (purple)
 and spirulina powder (blue)

Tunesday; Lust for Life

Is it Christmas?! 

This new single from two of our favorite artists'
The Weeknd and Lana Del Rey, Lust For Life, 
has us feeling like it is. Not to mention, the music
video just giving us all kinds of life.
We can't wait to see The Weeknd at Bonnaroo
and are hopelessly clinging onto the idea
that Lana will make a surprise appearance.
Wishful thinking. But for now, we'll just have
this one on repeat 'til then!

Lust For Life

Happy Tunesday!

Bandana DIY

Bonnaroo is just 24 days away and we
are already making some early preparations
for the trip! One of our must-have
festival accessories for the past few years
has been a bandana

We decided, this year, why not give
our bandana a little makeover and make 
them a little more fun with a super easy DIY!

We went through our goodie bag
of DIY notions, and found some cute
embroidered flowers and some 
ombre fringe to sew onto the bandanas. 
You can pick up bandanas just about anywhere
these days and they are usually about $.99!
You can also get a 12-pack on amazon for around

We got our floral patches on amazon, and
there are really great ones on etsy as well!
the ombre fringe we found at Michaels!

For the floral patches, we just did a simple 
whipstitch, enough to secure all the edges
of the patch down. The fringe was a little trickier
and delicate, so we did a machine zig-zag
stitch to secure the edges. Once secured, we 
trimmed the bottom of the fringe.

This DIY was so easy and we loved the way
it turned out! How will you style
your bandana this summer?

Happy DIY-ing!

Organizing Small Spaces With Sugru

We’ve discovered something AMAZING that has
completely changed our DIY game. It’s called Sugru!

What is Sugru?

Sugru is a mouldable glue designed for fixing, making and 
improving just about anything you can imagine. It sticks to almost
 anything, moulds like play-dough, then turns into a durable
 silicone rubber in 24 hours time! It’s seriously addictive.
 Sugru is waterproof, flexible, cold resistant, strong,
 heat resistant, grippy, easily removable, and so so much more!

About Sugru!

We decided to put this magic mold to the test by 
creating an organization piece for our kitchen to reduce
 some of the clutter. It’s a small kitchen with not a lot 
of shelf space. Currently we just have our spices sort of 
strewn about on the window will and stove top.  We can’t tell 
you how many times the spices get knocked over on a 
daily basis. It can be a bit annoying.

 This is our current spice situation...yikes!

We found an old crate that we had and some old mason jars, and
 though to ourselves, let’s make a shelf for the kitchen for the spices!

We used the Sugru glue to attach the mason jars to the bottom
 of the crate for some of our “bigger” spices. To help identify
 the spices, we also added some chalkboard paint on the front so
 we knew what spice was in each jar.

We let it dry for 24 and hung the shelf on the wall and
 WOW. The kitchen feels so clean! The Sugru was WAY
 easier to do then drilling holes into the crate. The beautiful
 thing about it too, is, if we ever change our minds later in life,
 we just simply remove the sugru!

For more information about Sugru visit their website!

Happy DIY-ing..and SUGRU-ing!
