scalloped mirrors {on-trend}


Let’s talk mirrors! Like any good home decor blogger, I love a stylish mirror. Mirrors are great for adding interest, making a space look larger, and opening up a room. They make a great focal point, and are the perfect addition to a gallery wall, mantle, or anywhere you’d like to add a bit of style. More specifically, though, I am currently crushing on scalloped mirrors…the fun scalloped frames are chic, feminine, and very definitely on-trend! Here are my favorite scalloped mirror finds…

easy valentine’s day snack mix {a recipe}

valentines snack mix

One simple, creative way that I use to celebrate different holiday with my kids is to create easy, themed snack mixes. My kids LOVE them, they take almost no time to put together, and they’re a fun way to mark holidays and special occasions. With Valentine’s Day coming up, I wanted to create a themed snack mix that my kids would enjoy over the next week or so as we celebrate the day of love!

First, I wanted to create covered pretzels to add to the mix. I melted a handful of white melting wafers, added a couple of drops of food coloring, dipped my pretzels, and covered them with sprinkles.


Place on a sheet of parchment paper, put in the refrigerator to quicken hardening process, and that’s it!

Add to the rest of your ingredients. I used rice cereal, oyster crackers, mini marshmallows, yogurt raisins, and a few conversation hearts to create my snack mix. Toss together.
