    How to Create Beautifully Wrapped Gifts

    I think it’s easy to say that presents are my favorite part about Christmas! I love giving them to my family and friends, and I equally love wrapping them. I used to help my mom wrap them every Christmas. Then, in about the second grade she got smart and realized I would do them all for her. Since then, I’ve been deemed the presenter wrapper in the family. Today I’ve gathered all my tips and tricks to create beautifully wrapped presents that are budget friendly, as well as quick and easy. With the right tools, it is super easy to create presents that are equally as amazing as the gift…

    DIY Simple Syrup Gifts

    Happy Monday friends! I hope you are all having  a relaxing, cozy, and warm Christmas season so far. I don’t know about you, but between the cold temperatures, cloudy skies, Hallmark Christmas movies, and the twinkly lights on my tree, I do not want to get off my couch, and much less do I want to think about the list of to dos and present buying I have to complete in the next few weeks. However, there is one thing I have crossed off my checklist: DIY gifts for family, friends or coworkers! Every year I love to make a little something for the people that are important to me.…

    Holiday Essential Oil Blends

    I love playing around with essential oils and creating my own blends. It’s even more fun around the holidays, because I get to diffuse oils that I don’t typically use year round, like Pine or Christmas Spirit (although, this one should be used during all seasons. It smells so great!) I combined a few of my favorites to create three custom essential oil blends for Christmas. I narrowed myself down to three blends, because honestly, I could have probably came up with a few handfuls! There are so many oils that are great for this time of the year, and there’s no better way to add to the Holiday Spirit…

    Bacon Wrapped Green Beans

    Did I have you at bacon wrapped? I would think so! These bacon wrapped green beans are the perfect side dish to any holiday (or just dinner in general!). They are really easy to make, super tasty, and look really impressive. They’re the perfect addition to dress up any meal. The green beans get a little crispy on the ends and are full of delicious bacon flavor. We had these for dinner tonight, and with a mouth full of beans, Brett turned to me with an endearing look and said “I love these bacon green beans.” Add these to your next holiday table, and I promise you’re sure to wow…

    DIY Holiday Garland

    I’m so excited to share my holiday garland with you all today! I love decor that can double for multiple seasons or holidays. Not only is it cost effective, but since the holidays come and go so quickly, I like to be able to have my decorations out for a little longer. This garland makes a big statement, but is secretly inexpensive and incredibly easy to make. It’s a win win! As soon as I saw the Hearth and Hand Eucalyptus Pinecone Garland at Target, I knew it needed to come home with me! Decorate for Thanksgiving or Christmas, change out the saying, and this garland fits perfectly into both…
