i lthink these sugar cubes are pretty awesome. they’re fun and easy–and they add a little bit of spunk to your tea and/or coffee.
here are the steps i took to make mine :
i love skulls so i chose a skull shaped silicone ice cube tray – if you look on amazon they have all kinds of shapes and forms.
making the sugar cubes are pretty easy. the two things you need (besides the ice cube tray) are sugar and water.
use one cup of sugar and one tbsp of water and mix together!
scoop the sugar into the tray using as much or little sugar as desired. i usually fill mine up 1/3 of they way.
let them sit a minute and then put them onto a plate (like the top image) to really dry- about an hour or so.
be careful not to touch them because they will fall apart. the easiest way i’ve found to do this is get a big plate and then flip the tray over on top of the plate.
and viola! next time you have friends over for coffee you’re sure to have the best sugar cubes in town!
this week i’ve been really inspired by some DIY! here are three things i am going to try to do this weekend! hope you’ll be as inspired as i am!
+1- these coasters are great and i feel like i am constantly looking for them around my house.
+2- i don’t know about you, but i love instagram and i use it all the time. i really love this idea of turning your pictures into pieces you hang on your wall! and i think these look super chic! –like the black & white too.

+3 – i love this idea of changing a plain white tee into some awesome! not sure i feel about the neon, but i want to make one!

well i hope i’ll have something to show by monday! i’ll have a busy weekend though if i get around to all of these! if you try them let me know.
here are three things i’ve learned about the way that i like to decorate. plus they’re just pretty things i’ve found around the internet that i wanted to share.
hope you’re having an awesome thursday. its been off and on raining/storming here in waco ( it NEVER rains!). i kind of hope it storms again tonight! (…and tomorrow is FRIDAY!).
#1- i love grey ( and the crux symbol). i really like black walls and dark colours, but i can never seem to fully commit to those dark colours. s0- grey is my go to!

#3 …and i just like everything about this room. esp. the chairs!
here are some peeks into our weekend and new house. jamie and i (and the cats) are completely exhausted. moving sucks the life out of you–and this monday morning i’m wishing for an extra day to help me recuperate and/or finish things up. we still have a few things at the old apartment and need to clean it as well some painting to finish up. BUT jamie and i are going home on wednesday for his sister’s wedding, which i am really looking forward to. i’m throwing a lingerie shower with mary at her new house which i’ll get to see for the first time. so here’s to the beginning of this week flying by and the end of it moving wonderfully slowly to soak up some tennessee sun and spend every second with family.
could i wear these today? pretty please?
#1-these lila rice earrings
#2-this of a kind tee
#3-and these lovely leather sandals (perfect for exploring!)
find them here! : #1, #2, #3

2. i love this beautiful bracelet by stella and dot.

i’m back from nyc!
what an awesome trip(for work!). so much art. so many museums. so much fun.
here are some photos from the trip!
this is the morgan hotel — the whole hotel was decorated in black and white with pops of red. and each room had an original robert mapplethorpe b&w photo! it doesn’t get much better than that.
these are just a taste of the art work we got to see! some of my favourites klimt, picasso and warhol- love his skull series!
we went to so many museum — the met, guggenheim, the neue, MoMA, storm king, the earth room, dia beacon, the whitney and tons of chelsea galleries!
and you know i had to get some cupcakes from magnolia bakery!
beautiful grand central!
and at the end of our trip we missed our flight back to waco and had to drive home, which was kind of a bummer, but we made up for it by stopping at in-n-out at 1am! ha!
perfect for a lovely little afternoon…
sitting in this room…
wearing these boots…
and eating this oatmeal (i’ve been on a HUGE oatmeal craze lately).
i’m in nyc (eee!) this weekend! follow on instagram for pictures!
1. these earrings are fabulous! i am obsessed with scarab beetles.
