DIY Luggage Gift Box

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SWEET BOYFRIEND! It was his birthday over this last weekend, and I wanted to spoil him as much as he spoils me every day. With gift giving holidays, one of my favorite items to give isn’t an item at all. I love giving the gift of time together. Over the years we have seen comedians, musicals, and gone on trips. This year the gift was a trip and I wanted to wrap it in a cute way! Plus if I gave him an envelope, I’m pretty sure he could make a guess what it was. This little luggage gift box was the perfect solution! Do you wrap gifts in creative ways? Comment below with your gift wrap ideas!

Pumpkin Scones

What is the most quintessential “Fall Flavor” to you? For me it is easily pumpkin. Everything from Pumpkin Cream Cold Brews to Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, Pumpkin Beers and of course… Pumpkin Scones! For the next few weeks at least, if there is pumpkin flavor, I will be there! For the Halloween themed brunch, a good scone was a must. To add a little extra Halloween flare, I piped “BOO” with the spiced glaze. If I make these again around Halloween, I would definitely put a little dye in the base glaze to add a little extra Halloween vibe to the scone.

Quick and Easy Fabric Pumpkin

You’ve seen it, you’ve probably made it, and you love it. It is the pumpkin that uses toilet paper to make the base shape! I have not made this craft before and can I just say, I love how quick and easy this project is. I will be putting this technique in the back of my mind to use for another holiday (hopefully). It takes 4 supplies. Yes, you read that correct… only 4!

Power Song

Let’s be honest, we all have at least one song that makes you feel like you can take on the world. For me, that song is (and probably always will be) Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys. My favorite time to hear it is when I least expect it but need it the most. That happened this week while I was stressed and thinking about my day ahead and it came on the radio. It was like a mental weight was lightened as I sang loudly along, “Oh she got her head in the clouds and she’s not backing down”. Feeling relieved and inspired after my power song, I wanted to remind everyone reading this to go take on your biggest dreams and don’t back down!

Taco Salad – Tortilla Bowls

A go to meal for my busy week uses taco meat. I’m able to use it for a couple of days as tacos, burritos, or taco salads. My personal favorite is the taco salad! I still like a tortilla with my salad, so how perfect is it when the bowl is edible! It’s really quick and easy, and warning… super delicious! Read more below to find out how to make these tortilla bowls.

Fresh out of the oven!
