DIY Dreamcatcher + GIVEAWAY

My friend, Hannah (from An Old Story) and I, have been working together on a Swap Challenge. If you're wondering what that is, and what it entails, check out my videos below. But the basic idea is that we sent each other a box of mystery craft items and we had to create a tutorial out of them.

The first video is the unboxing video where you can see the stuff that Hannah got me.

And this is what I made with the items Hannah sent me.


You also have a chance to win the items that we created (the best part, isn't it?).
All the rules are explained in the video above BUT the break down is:
- You must live in either Canada or the US.
- You MUST be subscribed to both Hannah and I, but we have other ways for you to gain entries in the giveaway, which are all available on rafflecopter.
- When you enter the giveaway you are entering to win one of the two prizes (either what I made or what Hannah made). When the two winners are chosen we will contact you both and ask which one you would prefer. It'll be a first come, first serve basis, so whoever replies to us first will get the first pick of the prize. (But both are so awesome, so you'll be happy with whichever you get).
- The giveaway will be open for two weeks (it will end on April 24th).
- We'll put the winners names in the DIY video, as well as declaring them on Twitter and our Facebook pages.

Spring Room Inspiration

I previously did a post on my office spring inspiration, so I figured it was only right to do a post on my spring bedroom inspiration. I've also done a little video on that, which I will link at the bottom of this post if you are curious in seeing it all in a video format. 

Happy first day of spring!

My Top 10 Spring Nail Polishes

Since spring is on the way I thought I would share my top 10 nail polishes for the spring. These are old nail polishes, although last time that I checked most if not all are all available online if you are interested. 
I love spring because it's the perfect time to put away all those dark nail polishes and bring out the pastels and brights.

What is your favourite spring nail polish?

DIY Almond Milk and Granola

A few weeks ago I decided to make some homemade almond milk because nothing beats food and drink that is homemade. Almond milk is surprisingly simple and quick to make, so if you're a fan of milk that doesn't come from a cow (aha), then give the recipe below a try!

Almond milk goes great with cereal, but since I don't like store bought cereal I decided to make some homemade granola which basically turns into cereal once you pour some almond milk over it.

To make it I simply combined together a mixture of oats, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and walnuts.  I mixed it up together with a bit of coconut oil and spread it on a cookie sheet, and into the oven it went. After the oats turned a nice golden brown, I mixed in some dried cranberries and raisins. Tastes super good and looks good as well!

I also enjoyed mixing in some granola into my greek yogurt and jam. YUM!
