A DIY Lover's Gift Guide

I don't know about you, but I love a good DIY. Whether it's something I came up with on my own, a pre-made DIY kit, a project I found on an amazing DIY site or I'm putting my own spin on a DIY someone else came up with -- DIY's are always fun.

Do you have someone in your life that loves to DIY? I've compiled some great kits & classes below that would make any do-it-yourself fan ecstatic!




One more thing -- the amazing people at Brit+Co (legit one of my favorite sites) are offering eight online classes right now FO' FREE!  Yes!  For a limited time, you can learn how to:


Seriously, though, what are you waiting for? The classes are totally free (for a limited time, so hurry up & get on that!) & once you 'buy' them, you have unlimited access to watch them as much as you like! Such an awesome idea, brought to you by the lovely people at Brit & Co. & FedEx! 

I was not compensated for this post, nor does it contain affiliate links, I just like 
the products in the gift guide & wanted to share the class links with you all. Enjoy!

I wanted to thank everyone who has participated over the last 5 and a half years. I am sad to say, this will be the last That Friday Blog Hop post. It just seems life has me pulled in a lot of ways and I can no longer keep up with this. I can't believe that this blog hop started on 3-17-2011 and still continued on. Thank you all for the amazing support. -Rebecca

[GIVEAWAY] Celebration by Frey™ and Sixlets™ Spooky Treats Event

It's a Celebration by Frey & Sixlets Giveaway! As you all know, I'm a huge candy fan plus I LOVE Halloween -- it's my absolute favorite, so of course I had to jump at the chance to design some spirited & spooky treats featuring Frey & Sixlets candies.



I made a mini candy bar to show you all the goodies I used to create my spooky treats. These tasty trick-or-treats were made using Sixlets 8-ball Tube Halloween Mix, Witch’s Brew, Black, Orange & Lime Green Sixlets, Halloween Mix Sixlets, Shimmer White Sixlets, Shimmer Orange Sixlets, Shimmer Lavender Pearls, Shimmer White Pearls, Shimmer Lime Green Pearls, and Googlie Eyes Gumballs.


I'm throwing a little Halloween themed get-together soon but wanted to test out some ideas first so I can decide on what I want to serve at the party. I really like using Celebration by Frey and Sixlets products when I decorate treats because not only are they super affordable, but they've got an incredibly colorful selection that allows me to get as creative as I want with my designs. If you get inspired to make your own ghastly goodies, you can head down to your local Walmart, Wegmans, Meijer, etc. (any major retailer should have them, really), pick some up and join in on the fun.

I made some spooky sugar cookies using Shimmer White Pearls, Shimmer Lavender Pearls, Orange Sixlets, Black Sixlets & Googlie Eyes. I think they turned out super cute!


I also made some hauntingly good white chocolate fudge using the Sixlets 8-ball Tube Halloween Mix & the Witches Brew mix. It turned out terrifyingly tasty!



So, I've got some great news! The Fashionistas, along with Celebration by Frey and Sixlets, are hosting a MAJOR giveaway! There are 25 blogs on a linky below who are each giving away $50 Celebration by Frey™ and Sixlets® Prize Packs! You could win a $50 selection of Fall/Halloween Celebration by Frey decorative candies including gumballs, sixlets, crumbles and pearls!

Don't forget to enter all the #CelebrationSpookyTreats giveaways below!
 
   

 This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me by Celebration by Frey. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic.

Brad & Angelina, You Have Broken My Heart

There, I said it.



You have broken my heart.


See, here's the thing, you two. I rooted for you. I defended you, countless times, against people who said your love was born out of an affair. You were my people. I loved you together.  I remember seeing your W magazine cover and thinking that no more perfect couple could ever be. I loved the great things you did together as a couple. You adopted New Orleans, my spirit home, and you helped a hurting city. I will forever be grateful to you for that. 
 

You have six gorgeous children. Think of them. Think of Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox. Think of how much they wanted you to get married. Think of the fact that you'd been together 8 years before you got married. You KNOW it can work. Go look at the wedding dress your children drew on and remember it and them as a symbol of your profound love for each other.


You have been together a decade. Don't become another Hollywood divorce statistic. Triumph on the love you have - the love for your children and the love for each other. Get your shit together and make it work. Please.

Are You An Impulse Blogger?

 
I frequently see people on their blogs talking about why they do it.  Why they blog, that is.  Honestly, I started my first blog on an impulse.  It started with a name in my head and went from there. I had to have outlet for everything else that was going on in my brain - which is why this blog was born.  I loved it, and I blogged like clockwork for many years. But, over time, it twisted and turned until it became something of a chore, something I had to do, instead of something I wanted to do.  Yes, I still have the blog, but it had become something of a job.  Not to say that I don't enjoy it, on occasion, but I still feel a bit of a hesitation when I think about blogging full time again.

But, the time is come where I have to face it. My name is Tiffany & I'm an impulse blogger.  I don't blog on the daily. To be honest, I rarely blog on the weekly. I'm not yet ready to make this a full time blog again, and I'm not sure I want to. I do know that I want to connect with people. Hopefully I'll be able to do that! Right now, though, I only blog when I feel like it.

One Thing I've Realized About Myself

 via

....I'm no good at pretending to be perfect. Hell, I'm no good at pretending to be okay. I'm a mess. Not like, "Oh, I'm a hot mess. *tee hee*" but like, I'm astounded at how I make it through a day sometimes. Kudos to all you bloggers out there with your perfect Instagrams & your pristine blog photos. I don't know how you do it and honestly, I'm tired of trying to emulate you. That road to bloggy success just isn't for me. If this blog never has more followers than it does at this exact moment, that's fine with me. But like I said, I'm just not good at pretending to be perfect. From now on, when/if I post, the veil is off. I might make you laugh, or cry, or offend you. I might make you think, "oh, girl, I know how you feel"...but whatever it is that I write about, I'm done sugarcoating. Life is messy. I'm embracing it.
