All Hallows’ Eve


This pretty much made my day.

Happy Halloween everyone! This Hallows’ Eve I’ll be chasing around my almost-two-year-old niece in Virginia, who’ll be dressed as Minnie Mouse.

What are you dressing up as for Halloween?


Hilarious Dog Costumes


There are few things that make me smile quite like animals dressed up in full costume. I’m not sure what it is, but I can’t stop laughing – especially those costumes that make it look like they’re standing up like a human (a la Yoda or the Sheriff). In honor of one more day of good old Halloween, costume goodness, I rounded up a few decked out dogs that will hopefully bring a smile to your day and get you all revved up for tomorrow!


P.S. 1 day ’til Halloween!

P.P.S. Are you dressing up your pet for Halloween? If so, what are they going to be? I’d LOVE to know!

Oculus Reparo


You know that unfortunate moment when a glass shatters or your necklace breaks resulting in an explosion of beads? Don’t you just wish you could tap your wand and fix it like they would in Harry Potter? I sure do. Well, no magic spells here, but it’s actually quite simple to repair or reinvent jewelry that has been broken…


All you need is a pair of pliers and a wire cutter, you might already have them lying around in a tool box at your house. If not, Michaels sells this starter kit for $9.99.


Pry open the jump ring by holding one side steady in place and pulling the other side towards you.


Attach a lobster clasp.


And there you have it, a repurposed bracelet.
