Hello lovelies!
Just wanted to quickly share with you about my friend’s company, Umba Box! It is a company that sends you a delightful box full of handmade goodies every month! You can subscribe for a couple months at a time, or just one month to try it out! My friend Erin is the buyer for the company, which means that she picks out each and every thing inside of the boxes. Trust me; her style is killer, so there’s no doubt that anything in the box is going to be incredible!

The boxes come with anything handmade, such as soaps, note paper, jewelery & other accessories! In each box, you also get a story about the artist, to see who they really are & how they made your product!

Finally, the girls at Umba Box just put together a great collage of things for the festivities of the season; and they took a great spin on Halloween by featuring products from Edgar Allen Poe’s spooky poem, The Raven.

I just wanted to let you know that although I was given no great adventures, vacations, goodies in a box, or Raven TOMS, I still wanted to post this because I LOVE Erin & her company so much & I thought I’d tell you about it tonight! Have a great week!
Much love,

hello lovelies! I’m here today¬†with a fun DIY that I hope you’ll really enjoy! I recently saw something like this selling for $18 at a high-end boutique, & although I know it’s cute, I also know it’s not worth that much! So, I decided to try my hand at duplicating it, and I’m quite pleased with the results! This project cost me $1.75 total, so it felt amazing saving so much money! I really hope you like this; if you make it, let me know or send me a picture so I can see how it went for you!
Much love,

What you Need:
  • Scissors
  • Newspaper
  • Headbands (mine were 2 for $1.75 at Forever xxi)
  • Glue gun


  1. Tear newspaper into small strips about 1-2 inches in width.
  2. Hot glue the top & bottom sides of the headband
  3. Begin tightly wrapping the newspaper strips around the headband.
