Yes, I Got My Eyebrows Microbladed…

Yes, I got my eyebrows microbladed! by top houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth

Yes, yes I did! Actually I got my eyebrows microbladed back in October, and then the standard touch ups done in December, so I’m now officially all healed and finished! I shared some of the process on Instagram stories at my first appointment, and a TON of you have been asking me about it since! To show you the cold hard difference that good eyebrows make, I’m sharing my no-makeup, non-edited, horrible iPhone photo before and after shots. You’re welcome in advance.

Let’s face it: 2016 was sort of a mixed bag. Maybe not completely, but I think we can all agree that it feels GOOD to start a chapter!  It’s the perfect time for us to hit the reset button, reevaluate what’s important to us, and refocus on what we want from the next year..  Plus, we’re fresh faced enough to believe that we’ll stick to the fifty new years resolutions we make, ha!

DIY Decanter Tags

DIY Decanter Tags tutorial by Sugar & Cloth, an award winning DIY and lifestyle blog.

I, Erin, scored some cool decanters while thrifting this Fall, and have been excited about setting up our bar cart ever since. One thing I hadn’t accounted for though was once the beverages are decanted, how do you know what’s what? Is that Vodka or Gin?

Precisely this conundrum is how the idea for these monogram-esque decanter tags were born, which use a letter to signify the type of booze inside each decanter. “V” for Vodka,

Changing the Blogging Game by Giving Back

five-percent-giving-back

We’re all friends here, right? I ask because I don’t want you to judge me too badly for this next statement. To be 100% candid, I’m over it. I’m over the social media number chasing. I’m over pictures of myself when in reality I’m just a behind the scenes kind of girl. I’m over buying things for picture perfect parties that barely anyone comes to. I’m over wanting to have free weekends but feeling pressured to live up to the blogging name and find things to post that seem cool enough.
