Cindy is a former actress and model who now works as one of the top luxury […]
Easy, handmade cards using nail polish. (What?! Genius!)
I’m so lucky today to have my friend Shannon from Madigan Made here to share this cute project with you. It’s one of those projects that make me want to smack myself in the forehead and say “Oh my gosh! How brilliant is that, and why didn’t I think of that!?!” I just love these […]

Make an Anthropologie inspired cup & saucer serving tower.
Today’s guest post is from this fabulous blogger that I met on twitter, discovered we were both Southern California girls and decided to host The SoCal Social together.

A quick trip to Disneyland… Yep, I Just Got Happier.
