Chloe + Isabel Giveaway!

Today, I’m super excited to share with you all Chloe & Isabel merchandiser, Meggie Hunter with 2 Chic Cousins.  Meggie and I have been friends since college and she just has an unbelievable sense of style! Meggie is an Mommy of 3 boys by day and a “jewelry fashionista” by night. Selling jewelry alongside her cousin Shea Brattian who is a school teacher.


2 Chic Cousins has generously donated a $48 Sand + Sky Convertible Pendant Necklace that I am going to giveaway to one lucky winner. The winner will also get $25 off a $75+ purchase! (See the details below)
If you have yet to hear about Chloe + Isabel, they are a high-end end jewelry company that offers a lifetime guarantee on ALL pieces. Yes you read right LIFETIME guarantee! Chloe + Isabel is a nationally recognized brand and has been in major magazines and has recently teamed up the past few months with companies such as BirchBox and Julep. The Chloe + Isabel brand was inspired by a concept we call “The Friendship Philosophy” – the idea of two best friends with different personalities and styles, united by their passion for fashion and self-expression. Chloes are more trendsetters with a daring, chic sense of style. Isabels are more sophisticated with a romantic refined and classic approach to style.

DIY Puff Quilt

DIY Puff Quilt

I just love DIY gifts, don't you? This past Christmas I decided to make my mother a DIY Christmas gift, as I often do for people that I love. I received and overwhelming response of requests via the photo I posted on my Instagram account that I decided to post a tutorial on making a smaller child sized version. So, as promised, here is my DIY video! This tutorial is intended for those that have a basic understanding of sewing and sewing machines. It is a very easy project, but as always should you have questions (because I've never done a quilt tutorial) please don't hesitate to ask!

DIY Melted Bead Suncatcher

Looking for a fun, fast, and inexpensive craft to do with the kiddos? Look no further, ta-da! DIY melted bead suncatchers are fun for the whole family. They make great gifts or just a fun craft to do with the kids. Keep reading below for what you'll need, tips, and a how-to video!

What you'll need:
- cheap plastic pony bead
- cake pans, cookie cutters, and cookie sheet
- an oven
- power drill (to be able to hang them)
- string

NOTES:
- No, this did not stink up my house, but I did have the stove vent on and the window open to circulate the air
- You do NOT need to spray the cake pan or cookie cutters
- While cooling your suncatchers will make a popping sound, this is the plastic drawing away from the pans and means they will soon be ready to pop out!
- Allow your suncatchers to cool for at least 10 to 15 minutes and then pop out once fully cooled
- I used a convection oven set at 400F and cooked my suncatchers for 30 to 45 minutes or until the surface looked smooth and fully melted
