As I mentioned in last week’s DIY post, while in California a few weeks ago, Erica and I got down to crafting business. She had been inspired by Hazel Cox’s gorgeous tassel earrings and we set out to make our own versions. Figuring out the mechanics of making them was a little bit tricky at first, but once we figured out the metal parts, the rest of the project was smooth sailing.
I’m really excited about this DIY beaded tassel necklace. For one thing, it feels really good to be making jewelry again… but also, it’s just so easy! My favorite DIY projects are the ones that look fancy but are actually so easy that anyone could do them. This is one of them. The game changer is really this Etsy Shop…
And today, Jay and I are back with another DreamDry inspired hair tutorial! I’ve been really excited for this one as it’s so unique and different. It’s also (believe it or not) probably our easiest hair tutorial to date. I will admit that when Jay suggested we do a “topsy tail braid,” I raised an eyebrow at first… but then he showed me what it would look like and I freaked out (in a really good way).
When I was in my early twenties, my friend Kristen used to make us the most incredible watermelon martinis for book club and girls ‘nights. The recipe is pretty easy and yields a cocktail that is insanely refreshing and delicious. Her original version called for two parts vodka (to one part watermelon puree + one part watermelon schnapps)
A few of you had asked about the salad we made with our homemade lobster rolls, and this is it… Panzanella! This recipe is originally from Barefoot Contessa and has become a family recipe of sorts. It all started when my friend Remy came home to Cape Cod with us, and she made the salad. It was an instant hit..
