Studio DIY HQ: The Reveal!

Studio DIY Headquarters

It’s here!!! Six months later and I’m finally ready to share Studio DIY Headquarters in all it’s bright, crazy, colorful glory!!!!! This was truly a labor of love to put together, and so fascinating to watch my brand that I’ve built here in this not-so-real space come to life in a very real space! I was lucky enough to partner with so many of my favorite companies to make this place of my DREAMS come true and I’m freaking out EXCITED to share all of the details (Like, 30 photos worth!) with you. And BONUS! Glitter Guide is sharing a tour of the space as well (with some photos you won’t see here!) along with a fun interview about my brand, the studio and everything in between! Head over there to check that out, and keep on scrolling to check out all the insanity this here blog now calls home!

Party Hair: Hair Chalk for Brunettes! (+ A Fishtail Top Knot)

How-to: Hair Chalk for Brunettes

So apparently 2014 is the year that everyone decided to dye their hair pink. Am I right!? I was feeling all sorts of left out, because most people dyeing their hair happen to be blonde. When Tic Tac asked me to try “Shaking it up!” for a fun post, I knew I had to find a way to turn my not-so-blonde hair oh-so-very colorful! Of course, I wasn’t about to bleach my hair and dip it in pink just three months before my wedding (!) so I asked Joy of Page Beauty if she had another solution…. hair chalk! We had some fun shakin’ up my look, and styling it in the top knot to end all top knots (helloooo fishtail!) to show it off!

Funfetti Creamsicles

Funfetti Creamsicles

Ooooh yeah, I told you I wasn’t letting summer slip away. BACK OFF SEPTEMBER! Luckily my pals over at Garlic My Soul share in this quest. We decided we needed to squeeze in a popsicle recipe just in the nick of time… and it needed to involve sprinkles. Funfetti creamsicles!!!!!!!!! Yep. It happened. And GMS is here to share the recipe (at the bottom of the post!). My only contribution to this was the eating of excess sprinkles. OK, I may have styled an orange slice or two. I do what I can, folks.

Recipe by Garlic My Soul

Makes 6-8 creamsicles, depending on your ice pop molds!

½ cup orange juice (freshly squeezed preferred)
½ cup coconut cream
½ cup milk
sugar/honey to taste
½ cup sprinkles

1. Juice your oranges (I needed 2 to get ½ cup. Pro Tip: Cut your oranges lengthwise instead of width wise to yield more juice!)

2. Whisk together coconut cream and milk until creamy and smooth.

3. Mix your orange juice with your creamy mixture, and taste. If not sweet enough for your liking, add a tablespoon of sugar/honey at a time until you have the desired flavor (but remember – you are going to add sprinkles, so don’t make them TOO sweet.)

4. Add your sprinkles and mix well.

5. Add mixture to your popsicle molds – you will have to help the sprinkles find their way into the popsicles as they have a tendency to sink to the bottom of the bowl – that’s ok, just use a spoon to equally distribute!

6. Freeze overnight. Enjoy a refreshing popsicle for your afternoon snack!

A huge thank you to the GMS ladies for putting sprinkles in popsicles and making our lives better today!!
