White Button Down

Sunday, January 26, 2014

Today's post is one of my favorite outfits! I love this classic white button down and black jeans! These cheetah (of course) wedges are so adorable! And black purse with gold accents is so great! It's the perfect big bag to carry everything I need! (And all the unnecessary crap we girls insist on carrying around!!) 

Shirt: JC Penny
Jeans: Kohls 
Bag: Forever 21
Shoes: Forever Young

Have a fabulous Monday!! 

Loves! Tayler. 

DIY Tassel Garland

Friday, January 24, 2014

Today's post is about how to make a tassel garland!  I've seen so many cute pictures of these garlands, I had to have one!  They're so cute, and easy to make!  I made my tassel garland in Valentine colors!

You will need:
Tissue paper
Rotary cutter or scizzors
2 yards of rope
Hot glue gun

First, fold the tissue paper in half.  (I did 3 sheets at a time.)  Cut into 1 inch strips.

I used 15 strips per tassle.

Tightly twist the strips together from the middle.

Fold the tassel over the rope.

Use a couple of dots of hot glue to keep the tassel together.

Simple as that!  Hang and enjoy!  I love this fun garland so much! I used clear command hooks to hang my tassel garland.

You can get hoops like these from Sweet September! 

Valentine Hoops available at Sweet September!

I would love to see pictures of your cute garlands!  Good luck!

Fix a Broken Compact

Sunday, January 12, 2014

This has happened so many time over the years: broken powder make up!  Usually I just throw them out because I can't use them.  But recently I found out there is a way to fix them! And it's soooo easy!
All you need it plastic wrap and rubbing alcohol! 

Break up the make up as much as you can, cover it with plastic wrap
or a ziplock bag, to avoid a mess!
Pour in rubbing alcohol, and let it soak in.

Cover the compact with plastic again, and smooth out the wet make up.
Let it dry over night.
Ta Da!

It's so ridiculously easy to fix broken make up, every girl should have this trick up her sleeve!

Harry Potter Fashion Sketches

Tuesday, January 7, 2014

I have been trying to do more with fashion sketching.  So I've been practicing as much as I can!  I've been trying to find inspiration so I can practice! One of my favorite things in the world is Harry Potter (obvi, it's amazeballs.). So I decided to do a series of fashion sketches inspired by Harry Potter!  Something I love about fashion sketching is that it doesn't have to be perfect.  It's whatever I want it to be!  I've seen so many inspiring fashion sketches recently and I'm obsessed! I hope I can develop my own "style". I love that everyone's interpretation is different and unique!
Enjoy! :)

I'm so excited to do more and hopefully get better!! 
Loves, tayler

Every year, I find myself making a list of a million resolutions.  Many that I don't pursue, which I know we are all guilty of!  So this year one of my resolutions is to make a list of meaningful resolutions that are important to me, that I will really stick with!  I saw a good list on Pinterest of some outlines for goals, so I used that as inspiration, and added a few others.  I am going to put my list somewhere that I will see often, so my goals are always in the front of my mind!

Hopes and Dreams for Twenty-Fourteen (has a nice ring to it, yes?)

A new skill I'd like to learn:

A place I'm going to go:
On a cruise!!!

I'm going to be better at:
Reading my scriptures

Bad habit I'd like to break:
Saying mean things about myself, to myself
I hope you will all put that on your list!

A person I'd like to be more like:
My sweet husband, he doesn't let the small things get to him
and he is VERY patient

A few more:
Build my testimony
Get a gym membership and actually USE it: zumba and yoga classes!
Be more relaxed, and less anxious
Create more! Sketches, crafts, sewing, blogging
Don't compare my projects to other peoples projects
Do more with the Esty Shop!

I hope I can really stick with these goals, and grow to be closer to the woman I hope to be!  I know this year is going to be full of memories and I'm so excited to to conquer this year!

Camo Leggings

Wednesday, January 1, 2014

I've seen so many pictures of cute camo legging outfits, I just HAD to get a pair of my own! I love these ones that I got from The Nest on Main! They are pretty thick and stretchy!  I know people have the whole "leggings aren't pants" thing. Which I agree with, to a point! As long as they're stretchy and thick, and your bum is covered, :) I say yes to leggings!!! Cotton On has a ton of cute high/low shirts that I love to pair with leggings!
