5 Valentine’s Day DIY Decorations

January 19th, 2015

love_yarn_letters

 
Valentine’s Day is coming up really fast! We are in the middle of making a really great DIY Valentine’s Day wreath to put on our front door to decorate, but we need more ideas to spice things up for the holiday. We found five really great and mega easy do-it-yourself ideas to make your room totally V-Day ready! Check out what we found below and let us know which one you are planning to try out!
 

candles

 

Project #1: Twine Wrapped Candles

We think these large candles wrapped in twine and then decorated with little cut out felt hearts is a mega easy and totally adorable way to make your room special. You could even use some lace ribbon or something to tie around the center in a bow to make it more girly!

 

conversation hearts candles

 

Project #2: Conversation Hearts Candles

Okay, seriously! How easy would this be!? Take some huge candles, put them in giant hurricane vases and pour in a bag or two of conversation hearts! As long as you don’t let them burn all the way down and melt the candy, it’s a quick and easy way to make your table pretty!

 

heart_cone_tree

 

Project #3: Valentine Heart Cone Tree

The Valentine heart cone tree is a classic Valentine‘s decoration. You only need paper, scissors and glue to create it, but feel free to add your own personal touches. It would look adorable on a desk or bedside table!

 

playing cards garland

 

Project #4: Heart Playing Cards Garland

This one is available to purchase right from Etsy if you don’t want to give it a try yourself! Otherwise, you can probably make it with a deck of cards, some pretty ribbon and a hole puncher! It’s the perfect garland to put above your bed or on a mantle!

 

love_yarn_letters

 

Project #5: Yarn Letters

We love this LOVE decoration! Grab some cardboard or wood letters from your craft store, yarn in your favorite colors and a hot glue gun and get to wrapping! This would be cute in any word, if L-O-V-E isn’t your fave. You can even leave it out all year round since it’s so adorable!

Which project do you like the best? Are you going to make any of these DIYs to add to your Valentine’s Day decorations?

Yay! The fourth season of Disney’s “Austin & Ally” premieres TONIGHT, Sunday, January 18th! We know there will be a ton of new surprises in store for us, starting with a brand new opening credits scene!

Check out the new opening below, and then read on about tonight’s brand new episode!

 

 
Wasn’t that fun!? Tonight‘s season 4 premiere is titled “Buzzcuts & Beginnings” and is the 68th episode in the series! Wow! The official Disney summary is:

“The gang shares an emotional reunion in Miami at Ally’s triumphant homecoming gig. When Austin learns that the foursome’s time together is only temporary, he contemplates enrolling in military school.”

Sounds like an interesting episode! We hope Austin doesn’t make the wrong choice! We’ll have to tune in tonight to the Disney Channel at 8:00 PM ET to find out!

Get The Look: Lyndsy Fonseca

January 15th, 2015

lyndsy fonseca

 
Actress Lyndsy Fonseca plays super spy Angie Martinelli on the new ABC Marvel TV series “Agent Carter,” though you may recognize her from playing Ted‘s daughter for all those years in “How I Met Your Mother!”

She posed on the red carpet at The Langham Huntington Hotel and Spa in Pasadena, California yesterday, January 14th, to celebrate the Disney ABC Television Group‘s TCA Winter Press Event Tour party. She wore a cropped black shirt, silver and black patterned skirt and very unique heels to pull off a really classy look. We found a few pieces that remind us of Lyndsy‘s outfit, and we thought we would share them with you in case you wanted to get her look too!
 

crop top charlotte russe

 
First up, you will need a black cropped shirt. We like the one above from Charlotte Russe called the Textured Scuba Knit Crop Top.
 

h&m skirt

 
Next you will need a skirt. We like this ribbon embroidered skirt from H&M! Super cute pattern and style!
 
dsw
 
Lastly you need totally unique and cool heels. We picked the above ones from DSW. They are the Michael Antonio Jazz Pump and they are super classy! The pointy toe and funky cutouts totally remind us of the ones Lyndsy is wearing!

What do you think about the outfit we pulled together to look like Lyndsy Fonseca? Which is your favorite piece from it?

“#WellBeTheStars IS OUT ON ITUNES CLICK THIS HERE LINK https://itun.es/us/EkfV4 

Ready for a listen? Check out the song below and read along with the lyrics we posted underneath it! Enjoy!

 

 

“We’ll Be The Stars”

We are young, we are gold.
Trying things we didn’t know.
Looking at the sky.
See it come alive.

All our fears became our hopes.
Climbed out every locked window.
You’re the lion’s mane
We fell out from the rain

We can reach the constellations.
Trust me, all our dreams are breaking out.

No, we’re never gonna turn to dust.
All we ever need is us.
Don’t be scared or close your eyes.
No, we’re never gonna die,
We’ll be the stars.
Oh, no we’re never gonna step too far.
Yeah, we’re holding on to who we are.
When it’s time to close our eyes,
They’ll see us in the sky.
We’ll be the stars

Let me in, hold me close.
Fill my heart with simple notes.
So when it’s hard to see,
They’ll be there reminding me.

Take my breath, and hold me high,
So I can feel the city lights glowing under me
It’s on our reach, we’re breaking out.

No, we’re never gonna turn to dust.
All we ever need is us.
Don’t be scared or close your eyes.
No, we’re never gonna die,
We’ll be the stars.
Oh, no we’re never gonna step too far.
Yeah, we’re holding on to who we are.
When it’s time to close our eyes,
They’ll see us in the sky.
We’ll be the stars

We can reach the constellations
Trust me, all our dreams are breaking out.

No, we’re never gonna turn to dust.
All we ever need is us.
We’ll be the stars.
Oh, no we’re never gonna step too far.
Yeah, we’re holding on to who we are.
When it’s time to close our eyes,
They’ll see us in the sky.
We’ll be the stars

It’s such a great song! We love it, Sabrina! We hope you come out with new stuff soon too because we can’t wait to hear more.

What do you think of Sabrina Carpenter‘s song, “We’ll Be The Stars”? Are you adding it to your playlist?
