When I think of the word Hawaiian several things come to mind: pina coladas, bikini’s, beaches, Hawaiian punch (weird, I know. I don’t even drink them), Hawaiian rolls (you delicious things, you), and candles. Now if you’re still with me after that train wreck of a thought process, I’m happy to bring you a simple DIY vanilla orange mint sugar scrub that I love to make that helps me pretend that I’m in a tranquil, Hawaiian place (plus it helps you get ready for your upcoming beach days) as part of our little collaboration with Glade.

Now prepare yourself for silky smooth skin in all of five minutes with this super simple recipe that you can make while thinking of all of the things the word Hawaiian brings to mind. That’s totally what all of the cool kids do to prep for summer right?…

Are you guys tired of my macaron projects yet? Come on, give it to me straight, I can take it! Worst case scenario I just emotional eat all of my DIY ice cream cone macarons on my own (see what I did there? you almost didn’t even realize I slipped another macaron DIY in on ya!).

No but seriously, these are great because you can trick small children into eating half the amount of sugar and they’re still getting ice cream and cookies, plus they’re super simple to make unlike the somewhat tricky painted waffles and fruit macarons. Now let’s hop to it (that’s my Easter weekend nod for you)…

Well it was a doozy of a weekend over here, you guys! Between our Easter styled get together and the DIY home decor workshop, I think I’ve had enough cake, pie, nutella sandwiches, and pendant light wiring to last me a few months. Good news is those were mostly positives minus the fact that I need to take up working out now apparently, but it was great for Brittni and I to get to meet all of you that attended!

Now let’s get down to business recapping the excitement, and by that I mean pictures of cupcakes, yeah?…

How to make flavored bitters & printables!

I’m always a sucker for cute jars, and lately I’ve caught myself wanting to buy the insanely expensive bitters jars to add to my bar cart collection almost strictly for the look of them (please tell me I’m not the only one who wants this?!). I’ve resisted my impulse buying urge, and since I loved the fruit patterned wall art that I made for the studio with my Sprout, I decided I wanted to include it at home for cute jar labels.

Obviously you can use labels for anything (and everything if you’re asking me), but I figured I’d try my hand at making my own bitters and use the labels for for those. Alas, it actually turned out to be more expensive than if I’d bought the pre-made versions (of course, isn’t that my luck?), but supposedly they taste much better, plus you can make twenty times the amount and reuse the spices over and over again. So really you can just look at it like a longer term investment (that’s me trying to console myself).

ANYWAYS, to share the love I figured I share what I learned on how to make flavored bitters & printables from my Sprout for you to use either to fill in the blanks on your own, or for your own bitters too!
