I’m so happy that we are well into the autumn season now. The temperature has finally dropped (after a warm spell last week of 28°C/83°F in New York!), and the boots and scarves are officially on. Whilst I’m pretty sure this time of year is everyone’s favorite for many reasons, for me it’s all about the creativity it brings out in people. From decorating homes to making costumes, you get to see so much personality and flair in those around you. However, just in case you’re in need of some inspiration, check out these awesome creative (and no carve) pumpkin decorating ideas.

Super Bowl Craft Recap

9th February 2015

Did you guys get crafty for this year’s Super Bowl? I decided to treat myself over the Christmas period and splurged on a Cricut Explore! So far it has been amazing, so easy to use and the possibilities are endless. Recently I’ve been creating my own SVG files through Illustrator and importing them in to the Cricut Design Software however I decided to try out a couple of Cricut’s featured projects for our friend’s Super Bowl party. These Football Mason Jars and Favor Boxes were so quick and simple to make (supplies – mason jars, white vinyl, brown cardboard and a spot of glue), once ready we just filled up the jars with a sweet tea vodka cocktail and the boxes with popcorn for some tasty half time treats!

Birthday Mimosa Bar

25th February 2014

Mimosa_BarAs many of you know there is no bigger rivalry in the Six Nations rugby tournament than Ireland vs England, for me being English living in Ireland it’s especially an intense game. This year the match fell on a Saturday afternoon which coincided with a friend’s Birthday celebrations so I decided to host a pre match Mimosa party before we ventured out in an attempt to find seats in the packed Dublin pubs. Despite Ireland’s loss, it was such a fun day with some of my favourite ladies and the Mimosa Bar went down a treat!
