You asked for more sources from the blog and other inspirations, so I’ve decided to start a new column of my favorite styling and craft items! As of approximately 7:30 pm last night, this is my current styling wish list. Now, I could totally go buck wild with this whole wish list thing, but I’m keeping it to minimum so there will plenty to go around every week.
First up, these ten items are some of the things you’ll see in the studio, plus a few extras that I would totally kill for! That gold rimmed ice bucket? I NEED!

Not to go all 8 years old on you by bragging about my sweet new bike or anything, but it wouldn’t be true to form if I didn’t DIY a little something for it, so I’m justifying it as something that most 26 year old girls do in this instance. You have to admit, she’s a pretty sassy looking little thing with this DIY polka dot bicycle basket, huh?!
I’ll spare you the super uncomfortable part of the conversation where I decide to name her something like Lola, and then whisk off into the dusk with my basket full of flowers and sunshine beaming from her pedals. Totally not going to do that to you. BUT, I will tease you a little with saying this a part of an upcoming partnership with Brooklyn Bicycle Co. where one luck reader will get to win their very own Lola, er, I mean bike, but we’ll get to that in a few weeks! For now, the DIY…
With the new studio underway and a whole slew of fresh ideas for workshops in 2015, we’re looking for workshop partners to team up with to create even bigger and better classes and concepts for both workshop attendants and online recaps.
If you’re interested in having your brand featured on the blog and locally in the classes with either goodie bag products, providing the light bites and sips, or by sponsoring a class, fill out this quick survey to let us know how you want to be involved!
In the meantime, we’re working feverishly to finish up the new studio to host the first workshop of the year at the end of March. Don’t worry, we’ll be announcing all of the yearly calendar details with you soon enough!

When I realized how much you all loved my sequin ampersand project, I knew I had to take one for the team and make an even more glamorous version with this DIY sequin marquee heart. Plus I don’t really need that much of a reason to buy a marquee heart in the first place, so the slightest hint of a DIY project on the horizon really sealed the deal for me.
If you’re planning a “Gal”entine’s brunch (or wedding!) anytime soon, you know your name is all over this! In case you’re not a heart gal, you can use this same tutorial for any size or shape marquee light, too. Just promise not to make one for your boyfriend as a Valentine’s gift and then tell him I told you to do it when he drops it like it’s hot….
