DIY Green Wreath

FARMHOUSE WREATH DECOR

If you haven’t noticed, I’m pretty obsessed with DIY. If it includes crafting of any sort, making my house feel more homey and saving money by doing it, I’M IN! JoAnn’s Fabric is my go to store when it comes to savings…Stepping into that store I feel as if I’m a kid that just arrived at the largest toy store in America…taking a “quick trip” is definitely not going to happen…ever. Let me start off by saying if you haven’t signed up to receive the JoAnn’s Fabric emails and text messages I suggest you do so if you are into anything DIY or the cutest home décor for any season/holiday! You can save SO much!

My most recent find was a medium sized grapevine wreath, 3 stems of greenery, old vintage clock and a metal vase. Luckily when I got up to the register I had just received a text message the day before for 60% off one regular priced item and an email of 20% off the total purchase! SCORE!

Going in to JoAnn’s Fabric I had in mind my floating shelf in my dining room that my boyfriend just built me. I had a sign that I made out of wood and white paint (that says “eat”) that I wanted to put on that shelf with the clock, the vase and the wreath. I will show the complete look at the end.

 

Here is what you’ll need for the wreath:

  • 1 Medium size grapevine wreath
  • 3-6 stems of greenery depending how much greenery is on them (I would hold it up to the grapevine wreath in the store to judge how much to get)
  • Hot glue gun with several glue sticks

1 What you’ll do:

  • Clip all stems down to just the greenery
  • Put a glob of glue on the end of the greenery and stick into the grapevine hold there for a few seconds
  • Keep overlapping the greenery until all of the grapevine is covered.

Pretty easy and very cheap to make! Buying a wreath like this at any store would be at least $25 and you can make it for $15 or less depending on your coupons.

7 Minute Breakfast On-The-Go

nom nom!

My mornings can be so hectic between getting in my morning “BootyCall” aka Tone It Up’s High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) which is a great way to start the day and give your metabolism a boost, getting the kids ready for summer camp and fed, and getting myself ready and out the door by 7am. I’m sure a lot of you can sympathize with hectic mornings and trying to remember a healthy breakfast, that’s why I love this quick 7 minute recipe. It’s definitely a favorite and you can even take it on-the-go!

Breathe: Thursday’s Mantra

Today’s Mantra:

Breathe: “Take several deep breaths, and exhale slowly to awaken your energy and to release old patterns.”

-Archangel Raphael

Hey followers! I hope you all are having a great Thursday! Today’s mantra is great for everyone. We can all benefit from several deep breaths and slow exhales to awaken our energy and start a new day with good vibes.

Today is the day I go to orientation and finalize my classes for this semester. It’s kind of an overwhelming feeling but amazing at the same time, to know I am going to be one step closer to the career I have wanted for so long. Here’s to taking lots of deep breaths, exhaling through any negativity or fear you have and gaining positive energy to create a new set of patterns that will make the happiest you!

Cheers to Thursday! Make it a great day and breeeathe! 🙂

Namaste,

Tuesday Pick-Me-Up

Is it only Tuesday?!😳

In serious need of my PerfectFit Awaken tea. You know one of those days you can’t get out of your own way? That’s me today. Could be the result of a Bachelorette hangover, from staying up so late to see the final rose ceremony and of course the after show, mixed with tying up all the loose ends before my classes start at the end of the month. Needless to say it is only Tuesday afternoon and I’m wishing it was Friday already 🙂

The PerfectFit Awaken tea is the perfect pick-me-up! Green tea with a blend of tropical breeze…reminding me that in exactly 3 months I will be laying on the beach in the Caribbean feeling that tropical breeze firsthand.

Is there anyone else suffering a Bachelorette hangover today?! Any thoughts on the outcome??🌹

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your Tuesday!
