A DIY Experiment: DIY Photo To Canvas for Mother's Day!

DIY photo canvases have been on my radar as a cool craft to try for several years now.  I just got married, and our wedding pictures are still very new to us.  I knew my mom and dad would love a special picture of me with each of them, and I wanted to make them extra special.  I also knew I couldn't afford to purchase a pre-made canvas, so I thought I would try the decoupage technique.

Choix review

Choix is a subscription box that allows you to pick 5 high end makeup samples every month. It costs $20 a month, but I was fortunate enough to get this on Black Friday when it was $120 for an entire year, so $10 a month. I would be on the lookout for sales like this because they've been having them more and more often.

Sephora Play April 2016 Review

Good news! Sephora Play! is now open to more people! This box is $10 a month and includes brands featured at Sephora. I'm really sad this month, either they didn't include an info book and play pass, or I just didn't get one. Either way, it makes me sad! I hope it was just a fluke because those are so helpful.

Silver and White Hand Dipped Style Succulent Planter DIY Target Dollar Spot Find $3

While roaming the three isles of the Target dollar spot (you know, the only safe place in Target for a spendaholic like myself), I found the planter of my dreams. It was cheap, $3, it was fake, so I couldn't kill it, and it was super adorable. When I got it home, I was completely satisfied with it, until I got the urge to paint. In a past life I was subscribed to many a nail polish box, and I only use a few of them. So I decided to put them to use here.

Sephora VIB and VIB Rouge Sale Spring 2016

I feel like people are going to be pretty upset about this, but don't shoot the messenger. This is all on Sephora. I know last fall people were pretty upset that VIB and VIB Rouge members got the same discount of 20% off their entire purchase. VIB Rouge members are promised extra perks beyond that of the VIB membership, and this seemed to be a slap in the face for many who loyally spent $1,000 at Sephora in a calendar year. This year's sale is possibly more upsetting. VIB Rouge members will not only get the same discount as VIB members, but a 15% discount at that. *gasps* I know there has been precedent for this discount to be smaller during the spring sale, but you'd think with how much Sephora has ticked people off lately, they'd try to make amends. Oh well, on to the sale!
