I’ve been busy playing with MJ and decorating a special baby room.
(PS- I’ve completely changed my mind on all aspects of Ingrid’s room, about 42 times. Stay tuned.)
In the process of changing my mind over and over again, I needed some tassels for the mobile.
For whatever reason, I knew exactly how I would make them.
And it worked!
All you need is some embroidery floss and scissors.
I doubled the amount sold in a pack, so the tassels would be thicker. Each pack of floss is $.30 at Walmart. So, each tassel costs only $.60. Such a good deal! This process takes about 3 minutes per tassel. I was glad it was pretty speedy.
Here is the picture tutorial on how to make them. Let me know if you have questions!
I might just have to make a tassel necklace for myself next.
More times than not when I get the urge to dig through the dirty shelves of a thrift store, my sweet girl is napping. Alas, I don’t get to go very often. She’s asleep right now and I just had said urge.
Then it came to me: I need an online thrift store.
I found two that are help those in need and seem fairly easy to navigate.
Shopgoodwill.com has more of an eBay feel. You set up an account and bid on items. They pull items from all over the country to post online.
Here are a few vintage (turquoise, Ray Bans, Coach bag) finds…
The other site I found is called WebThriftStore. This site allows anyone to donate items, the money goes to a charity, and then the seller gets a tax receipt. No bidding here, you can buy what you like immediately.
Here are a few more vintage (Marc Jacobs and CHANEL) finds…
Do you thrift online? What are you favorite sites?
Last weekend, my mom treated me to a pedicure. (Can’t thank her enough!) One of my favorite parts of the pedicure is pillaging through the stacks on stacks of past magazine issues. The pedicure was relaxing and rejuvenating, but during it I read an article about Drew Barrymore. I’m a longtime fan.
Who knew she had a makeup line? Not me. Maybe I’m just late to this party.
She created Flower Beauty with the intent to sell high-end cosmetics at low prices. How might she do that without compromising the quality? No advertising. Yep, you read that right. She promotes it. Brilliant, Drew. We all thank you. Where might you find this product line? Walmart! Don’t worry, they carry it online as well.
I haven’t had the pleasure of trying it out, it’s not carried in every Walmart. This week I’ll be hunting one down that carries it. SO excited. If you’d like to see my favorite products from the line, head over to follow or like Whoa, wait. Walmart? on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.
Have you tried Flower Beauty yet? If so, what are your favorite pieces from the line?
