Scrapbooking: Where to Start

Taking a photo of a moment captures that moment for forever, and that's exactly what I'm trying to do. I started scrapbooking a few months ago and now I'm almost done with my very first scrapbook. The focus of this one is my boyfriend and I and our first year of college. I want to share a couple of pages with you and give you a pretty good list of what you need to make an awesome scrapbook!
Here's the cover of my scrapbook! Pick a photo that you love that represents what the scrapbook is about <3
Since football is super big at our school I put a bunch of photos with red boarders on a red scrapbooking sheet and added some cool football stickers as well as a list of all our home games!

This halloween page is one of my absolute favorites because of the adorable little cop stickers I got! It was such a fun night and I incorporated the typical halloween colors with the scrapbooking paper and photo boarders. 
Of course this is one of my favorite pages because this is one of my favorite moments. I added tons to the page using ribbon, stickers, and boarders. 
Now, I totally recommend making your own scrapbook and here's a pretty helpful list of what you'll need to get started!

  1. Scrapbook! (Obviously) Good thing is Michaels sells a ton of them and if you catch them on sale you can find some for only $15.00. 
  2. Boxes to put all your scrapbooking materials in! (I got these 7 for $10 at Michaels and they're online now for $3.99! However the selection might be better in store. Click here
  3. Recollections adhesive runner! This is a MUST. Glue can make everything look terrible if there's too much AND sometimes the edges aren't glued down enough. However, with this its like little double sided sticky dots that perfectly seal a photo, or whatever you want, onto the page. (Get it here from Michaels) 

  4. Extra scrapbook album refills! The scrapbook itself only comes with a few pages so you'll definitely want to add more. (You can get them at Michaels as well! Hint: Make sure you pick the right size) 
  5. A paper cutter. This will be super helpful because it will drive you crazy if your photos and boarders aren't evenly cut; or at least it drives me crazy! The one I have is great because its not to big, and the perfect size for scrapbooking! (also found at Michaels
  6. Scrapbook paper! I've gotten most of my scrapbooking paper either from Michaels or Target. You also want to get some construction paper as photo boarders to add more depth to the page. 
  7. Of course something to put the scrapbooking paper in! Michaels has specially made containers for scrapbooking paper so its easy to store, and they also have a ton of other cool storing options. 
  8. Lastly, stickers and ribbons and more! Two of my favorite ways to decorate my scrapbook is using stickers and ribbons. Michaels always has a ton of sticker selections in store, but you an also go to their website and search the selection there. Get excited, they have stickers for pretty much anything and everything!

If you don't already scrapbook, I hope you try it out and like it just as much as I do! And I also hope this post helps you out!

Good Luck!

The Best Michael Kors Watch You Could Ever Have

Michael Kors. Probably my two favorite words when it comes to bags, and of course, watches. I've always wanted a Michael Kors watch but I never knew which one I wanted. Well somehow, my amazing boyfriend managed to get me the most perfect Michael Kors watch, and here it is:

I love this one because its silver. Most of the jewelry I wear is silver, so this watch is perfect for me because it'll match my everyday jewelry. I also love this one because its a 33mm watch. Many Michael Kors watches are a lot bigger and I like smaller watches a lot better! 

Do you love MK watches as much as I do? Let me know! And tell me which one is your favorite :) 


P.S. The hands of the clock glow in the dark... if you don't think that's cool I don't know what to tell you

New Hair... Again...

Good Afternoon!

I haven't ever been one to dye my hair, but I did for the fist time a few months ago for a modeling job, and they made me blonde, like really really blonde. Before that I had more dark blonde/light brown hair so of course the change was sudden. Just yesterday I decided to go to a salon and get it just a little darker!

Lets start off with my natural color (which I actually miss so much!)

The previous three photos are from my photo-shoot for Kharis Design's Look Book

Now, this is what my hair looked like after the modeling job that I had to dye my hair for: 

This photo featuring my boyfriend, Matt :)

And finally this is my hair now! We made it a little darker so it looked more natural (hopefully!). 

Hope everyone has a great and safe weekend!

DIY Adorable Candle Holder

Good Afternoon!

Well today I woke up in a wonderful mood, but of course my geology lab this morning killed it so I'm doing some crafts to help get back to a good mood :)

Today I'm going to make a candle holder (which you could also use for things like earrings or trinkets). Its super easy!

What you will need: 
  • Foam Paint Brush (or regular brush)
  • Little Glass Bowl
  • Tissue Paper 
  • Mod Podge 
  • Scissors or Paper Cutter 

1. Cut paper into whatever shape you want to, I did 1in squares
2. Use the brush to cover an area with Mod Podge and place the tissue paper square over the            Modge Podge then paint Mod Podge over the square 

3. Repeat!! :)

And you're done! Yes, it really is that simple. 

(All photos are mine, please don't take them<3) 

Hope you guys like it. Its super easy and definitely worth making. Tell me what you think!
