If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I recently said good-bye to my childhood bedroom color. After this post, I decided I wanted a bright, white room. I’m a pretty extreme person because painting has led me to want to redo my entire room. I’m currently on the hunt for a cute desk, and would love to hang a couple shelves right above it. The gold shelf brackets add a touch of glamour to an otherwise functional piece, and would be a super simple DIY!
When I was in middle school, my parents let me pick out a new color for my bedroom. I went from a light pink to a really deep pink. I always loved pink and thought the darker color was much more grown up. I loved it, and still love it, though on darker or rainy days it sometimes makes my room feel like a cave. That’s why lately I’ve been admiring white bedrooms. They are much more crisp and bright. I especially love the idea of adding gold and blush accents!
Handira,Â or Moroccan Wedding blankets, are hand woven out of sheep’s wool, cotton, and linen. The blankets are laborious as they can take hours to complete. Because of the amount of hard work that goes into these blankets, they are not cheap. I’m currently researching ways of how to easily, and economically, recreate these beautiful pieces of art!
A couple weeks ago many enjoyed FX Network airing every Simpsons episode ever. The marathon brought back such great memories of episodes I hadn’t seen (or ever seen!) for a very long time! It also inspired me to create a cake in honor of the show. I settled on the famous pink doughnut…sprinkles and all!
1. The very first step is to bake a cake in your favorite flavor! I used two 8 inch pans. Refrigerate your cakes until completely cool. This will make it easier to ice and stack! Begin by cutting off the tops of both cakes to get an even surface. Ice the top of one of the tiers, then stack the second tier on top.
9. Dye a piece of fondant a light tan for the base of the cake. (I used about the size of a grapefruit in order to cover the sculpted 8 inch cake.) Roll out the fondant until it is just big enough to cover most of the cake.
13. Cut a small hole in the center of the fondant and push down into the inside of the cake. If the fondant does not cover the entire center, cut a smaller piece of fondant to fill it in. Don’t worry about the seam as it will get covered by the frosting.
As if I needed another reason to love gold. These temporary metallic tattoos have been popular with girls who like the idea of wearing jewelry at the beach, but don’t want to run the risk of losing it. The brand Flash Tattoos has had a big part in making the trend popular. Their tattoos last four to six days making it easy to change your look. Because I love recreating things I see on the internet, I’m currently dreaming up ways to DIY the look. Stay tuned!
