So I know this week is when people start to feel all of the holiday treats and decide to make diet-related resolutions, but I still need to share this awesome party popcorn with you.

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love popcorn as a snack. And it’s made even more fun when it’s jazzed up for a party or special event. And the good news is that it’s not too hard.

Mini Piñata Garland

I know that it’s September and I should probably start doing some fall projects, but I’m just not ready. I want to still wear shorts, eat ice cream, and go swimming. It’s technically still summer for another week or two, anyways.

With sunshine on my mind, I created today’s mini piñata garland. Bright colors and fun designs are always in season.

Since I now live hours away from where I grew up and from where I went to college, I have friends all over the US. It can be really hard to keep close with everyone, especially since I hate talking on the phone. The easiest way for me to show that I’m thinking of someone is to send mail. I absolutely love sending small care packages to my best buds, and birthdays are an extra special occasion to celebrate. Today I’m sharing a mini package that’s perfect to mail to friends and family that you can’t celebrate with because of distance. The best part is that I only spent money on one item (the candy) to fill the box!

I’ll admit that I have a little nail polish collection going. So when I learned that you could easily marble with nail polish, I was all for it. It turns out that it’s a pretty simple process that can get really cool results.
