DIY Tree Wall Decal-FREE Downloadable Template!!

I was working hard on this tutorial all week and I'm so excited to share it with everyone! I wanted everyone to know how easy it really was to make your own Tree Decal for the walls in your home! I took a trip to my nearest Lowes and purchased wall paper. I wanted to make birch trees, so I purchased textured wallpaper to mimic the bark of that tree's look and feel.

Above, I digitally composed the pattern onto a wall to show you an idea of how the tree will look. Also, how they would look when painted (black). You can also frame parts of the pattern...You can flip the pattern over onto your wallpaper and get a mirrored image tree as shown above. Use different colors if you'd like to create depth. Use the extended tree height (later explained) to create different heights of trees.

How to ROCK Fake Lashes...Step by Step Instructions!!!

I wanted to share an easy, step by step beauty tip: Fabulous Fake Lashes...It's a quick, easy step from looking frumpy to fab in minutes. I discovered them about two years ago.   I was a bit late reading the How to Be Fabulous memo :) Working in New York city, Fashion City, I noticed a lot more women wearing them on a daily basis. To work, to the supermarket, to the park etc. It's not only worn on special nights or events anymore. I found them really affordable at this store in Manhattan, New York...just doors down from work. They charge about $2.50 for lashes. That's dirt cheap!! helena collection --They have an amazing selection of wigs, hairpieces and lashes. They have a very famous list of clientele posted all over their walls. I started experimenting with lashes and got hooked. I shared this with a lot of my fabulous female peers and they love it.  I'll show you how to apply fake lashes in no time.
Kim Kardashian: Do you really think she was born with those lashes?? She is never seen without them! I don't blame her, they look amazing...She probably wears eyelash extensions instead of the fake strip lashes. Those are individual fake lashes that are applied and glued one by one onto your individual lashes.  See below (way below for eyelash extension info).

PERFECT Wedding/Party Favors...for a Dollar!

Wedding season is almost here, and a lot of brides are knee deep in searching for the perfect dress, venue, florist, and other details. Things can get very expensive VERY fast. The budget you set out to spend is almost never the amount you end up spending.  It's almost always way more.  These days, couples are spending far less, especially on things like flowers, table centerpieces and favors.  However, that does not mean that the wedding has to be any less extravagant! I found these amazing favors ideas at the Jack's 99 cent store in midtown Manhattan (New York).  I suggest you RUN over there if you are in the area. They do not last very long. These are just a few of their selection. Keep in mind that some of the candles come in many different colors also. They can be used for bridal showers, birthdays, anniversaries etc. They are sure to be a hit at your next event. If there are no Jack's stores near you, find your local dollar stores and hunt for their treasures. You'd be surprised at what you will find!

Fun Foods for Kids: Cute Cheesy Sunflowers!


Here is round 3 of my quest on how to feed a picky toddler.  In the middle of the night I had this great idea to make a healthy snack with the abundance of block cheese that I have my refrigerator...pretty sunflowers! Great for kids or adult parties. This can also be used to entertain adults at a wine and cheese gathering. YUM. This tutorial was inspired by gourmetmomonthego  I found it while trying to figure out the best way to make them.
