As you may know, we’re allll about wedding talk over here right now. Since we haven’t gotten our hands on an abnormal amount of hanging flowers recently, I thought it would be a fitting reason to bring the two together with a sweets and sips modern bridal brunch! Go big, or go home, am I right?

This DIY goes out to all our spice-loving friends out there! After all, who doesn’t obsess over a spice and cookies combo?

Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroons

Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroons recipe by Sugar & Cloth, an award winning DIY and lifestyle blog.

For many of us, coconut is the dividing line, you either love it or hate it.. I, Alex, seem to live in a divided house as well.  My husband can’t stand the look of it and of course, I’m coconut’s biggest fan! My favorite desserts include a coconut cake, a dollop of coconut whipped cream and these simple dark chocolate coconut macaroons.

Since they are raw, these macaroons are softer and chewier than the traditional baked version.

DIY Printable Photo Wall Calendar

Free DIY Printable Photo Wall Calendar by lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth

I’ve come to the conclusion that there are several types of calendar people in the world. There’s the type that loves token picture calendars, and a twist of nostalgia. The type that buys a really cute one and then forgets to flip the pages until October (my usual category), and then ones that prefer yearly calendars but can’t ever read read the dates because it’s so small. I like to think my DIY printable photo wall calendar solves all of these issues,

#SMITHSGONEMILD: A Major Plot Twist in Wedding Plans by top Houston lifestyle blogger, Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth

Sometimes when real life hits you smack dab in the face, you might be left announcing a major plot twist in wedding plans. That’s exactly what happened to us, so grab a cup of coffee and brace yourselves for this one– we’ve decided to cancel the Harbour Island destination wedding plan.

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.
