Diy Holiday Tutorials from DesignSponge

Today I was perusing DesignSponge and found these gems…I will be doing both. I’m excited. It’s freezing outside, so I’m enjoying and instant (gasp) cappachino. Perfect blend between hot chocolate and wih a slight coffee twinge. I also managed to score a blow out and some serious needed texurizing today!

WTF: Here’is hoping for snow!

Last time it was this cold in San Francisco it “hailed” an inch. It was the scarriest and raddest moment of 2005 though for sure. I was driving, which was terrifying but once we reached the coffee shop we were going to we had hail ball fights and watch Muni breakdown.

It snowed in the central valley the other day! Here’s hoping for a white holiday season.

A girl can dream can’t she.

Holiday Garland!!!

I love garland. There are always endless possibilities, and there’s nothing like enjoying the fruits of your labor once it’s strewn all over your house. I haven’t decided which one I will be making yet, too many to choose from.

I always feel guilty when I go out for coffee and get a sleeve, because it’s suuuuch a waste of paper. So, I always end up opting not to get one and then after that I usually burn myself. Here’s a solution to both my problems and a good last minute gift for coffee (or tea) lover everywhere. A tutorial from Pink Milk and Fairycakes!

Christmas is almost here!!!

One of the reason’s I love Christmas, is for all the parties and fancy dinners you get to get dressed up for. When else can you wear a sparkly red mini dress without someone giving you the eye? Modcloth, if you don’t already know is an awesome¬† online store with vintage inspired pieces. If you haven’t already add them to facebook and myspace. Everyweek they pick one friend to win a $50 gift certificate, all you have to do is add them!

My wishlist:
