diy: simple glitter art

I went through a phase about a year and a half ago where I was semi-obsessed with glitter. It was a messy obsession (and I’m pretty sure my roommate hated finding glitter on pretty much everything in our apartment)…but I just loved crafting with it! My favourite creation is my “Everyday I’m Hustlin’” hot pink piece that I hung above my living room sofa (see it here). It is such a simple craft and really quite fun to make.

decor vs. fashion: black and white shower curtain or skirt?

News flash! We will never get tired of decorating with black and white! Case in point–we’ve added a monochromatic shower curtain from Bed, Bath & Beyond and a striped skirt from The Gap to our shopping lists this summer, if only for the classic and ultra modern home decor and fashion appeal each piece brings to the table.

You’ve saved up $50 for a summer upgrade. Which would you choose–the black and white shower curtain or skirt?
