You may have noticed we have a certain thing for color…and rainbows..and unicorns. Okay, so we’ll leave unicorns out of this one for now, but we have combined some surprising DIY supplies to make very budget friendly DIY rainbow art. Any guesses?!…

I bet you wouldn’t have thought that pool noodles would make for chic art in your home, but I think this proves otherwise, don’t you think! Not that we’re encouraging you to hang dollar store noodles from the wall or anything.

Surprise! We’re still rolling out that renovation content. It’s basically the house makeover project that never stops, haha. This time we’re sharing our kitchen makeover design plan, before photos, and ideas with you.

TECHNICALLY this project has already been finished for a few months now (if you watch on IG stories, you’ve already gotten a peek!), but I wanted to share the process with you regardless. It’s not nearly as fun if there isn’t some mystery to the reveal lead up,

Faux Boxwood Wall & DIY Neon Sign

Boxwood Wall & DIY Neon Sign by top houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth

This faux boxwood wall & DIY neon sign was a total showstopper piece from our rooftop patio makeover! You might remember us sharing the before post that Alyssa put together right here. She also manned this awesome faux boxwood wall & DIY neon sign to go with it!

To me, boxwood walls are always so cozy and inviting. I love how they can give you that feeling of privacy while also bringing in an element of nature to your space.

Our London Cruise Itinerary + Need Your Recommendations!

Our London Cruise Itinerary + Need Your Recommendations! by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth #travel #family #familytravels #britishaisles #cruises

Hello, from London! We’re here prepping to go on our British Isles cruise with Princess Cruises tomorrow and we are so excited!

We flew into London last Thursday and we’re finally leaving Southhampton port tomorrow after sightseeing in the city and letting Gwen adjust to the timezone. Even though we’ve gotten pretty used to flying with Gwen, this is the first time we’ve had this much of a time difference to account for with her sleeping scheduling (London is 6 hours ahead of us!).

Sherry Berry Cocktail Recipe

When it’s still over 90 degrees for the foreseeable future, it calls for Sherry Berry Cocktails on repeat! If you’re not familiar with sherry cobblers or sherry in general, you are in for a treat.

My, Ashley Conway’s, first experience with sherry was reading Edgar Allen Poe’s The Cask of Amontillado in 9th grade. And then I didn’t come across it again for another 12 years. I saw amontillado sherry on a spirits list at a cocktail bar in SanFrancisco and could only think of literature class.
