Believe it or not, it is time to start thinking about autumn. We still have a month of summer sun to bask in, but fall fashion is here and back-to-school shopping has begun! After watching this Changing Room video by Free People, I was smitten with the Lace Cuff Henley and all of the fabulous ways it could be worn:

Five Below, and only thing more satisfying than unearthing every last chunk of 'gold' was using it to create something beautiful and useful. Raw mineral necklaces are gorgeous, edgy, and very interesting. If digging for fake gold doesn't tickle your fancy, any small stone could easily become a pendant with this technique.

That week at camp was the single highlight of my year (even more exciting than Christmas). Archery, tubing, and camping were fun, but my real passion was arts & crafts. I was kind of an indoors kid: I'm sure this doesn't come as a surprise to you. My afternoons were filled with magazine collages, glitter, and mastering the exotic art of Popsicle Stick Box Making (this is a staple camp craft right here). Each summer, I brought home a fresh collection of friendship bracelets, painted ceramic animals, and dream catchers to decorate my room and enhance my indoor lifestyle as I endured the fifty-one week long wait till I could return to camp.

Its time to play with sparklers! I'm ecstatic to break them out tonight (even though I'm still too scared to light one by myself). If you are in need of some festive last minute decorations before your picnic or bar-b-que, then this is DIY for you! Grab a bottle of white acrylic and look for something to paint. I created this sparkler design for a head wrap, but you could embellish throw pillows, paint a wooden tray to carry cold drinks, or make Fourth of July cards. I recommend trying it a few times on scrap paper first.

The 4th of July is almost here - and what could be more American than a frayed denim sundress and strappy sandals?
