Stitch Fix

It’s Stitch Fix time again! I signed up for fixes to arrive every other month and it’s like opening presents for Christmas/Birthdays 6 months a year. Fun part was my birthday is actually right around the corner so I was excited to see what items I may be able to wear to celebrate the big 3-0. For more details on Stitch Fix and how it works, check out my post from December 2014. Otherwise, let’s dig in!

February 2015 Stitch Fix #7

Having your own personal stylist isn’t just for the rich and famous. Sign up for Stitch Fix and get real style advice for real people.

Stitch Fix

It’s Stitch Fix time again! I don’t shop much beyond groceries and crafty things these days so it’s fun to get this box in the mail. What I like best is that you can pick how frequently they arrive from as frequently as once a month to as little as only when you ask for one. Right now I am thinking every other month may suit me. For more details on Stitch Fix and how it works, check out my post from December 2014. Otherwise, let’s dig in!

Side note: Stick through the entire post and you’ll also get a chance for a free month of another fun fashion service – Rocksbox.

14 DIY Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Give gifts from the heart this Valentine’s Day with this list of DIY gifts. From homemade lip balms to red velvet hot chocolate, I’ve got you covered. 

Making a gift for your dude? Paint a mug with loveable phrases, inside jokes, monogram, favorite sports team/movie/whatever and fill it with a bag full of homemade hot cocoa mix and marshmallows. Heck maybe he’d enjoy some manly peppermint lip balm too.

Wanna go crazy and make gifts for your friends? Doodle hearts onto the mugs and fill with a bag of chai tea mix, homemade chocolate lip balm, and some sparkly hair ties. I’m tempted to make myself the same combo.

And in case you are also in need of menu planning ideas, check out the links below for previous years’ Valentine’s Day Recipe Roundups:

DIY Painted Mugs

Personalized mugs make great gifts and they are easy to make thanks to Sharpie paint pens! Draw your design on a clean mug, bake, and revel in the awesomeness.

DIY Painted Mugs 6

If you are familiar with Pinterest I am sure you have seen at least one pin showing how easy it is to make your own personalized mug using a sharpie. After looking into it, there are mixed reviews on the durability of the design after washing. However, I also discovered through my search that there is a thing called Sharpie paint pens which produce much better results. So I grabbed my handy JoAnn Fabrics coupons, bought a few Sharpie paint pens (and some Rust-oleum universal metallic gold spray paint to try that too), and then gathered some inexpensive oven-safe black and white mugs.
