Boozy Peach Ice Pops

Boozy Peach Ice Pops_Twine And Braids

It’s that time of year when the days are getting longer, air is getting warmer and the fruity cocktails are flowing.  And I’m here to add another drink to your rotation that is so delish it may last past the summer months.  With the warmer weather I tend to go for drinks that are not […]

Grapefruit Sugar Scrub

Grapefruit Sugar Scrub_Twine And Braids

Truth: Sometimes I pick up products and materials for projects and never make them.  In this case it was an essential oil.  A while ago I went out in search of a citrusy essential oil with the game plan to recreate cooling towels the Bikram yoga studio I was attending at the time handed out […]

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother's Day Gift Guide_Twine And Braids

As I’ve gotten older and my likes and interests have evolved,  choosing gifts for my mom has become easier.  I tend to choose products and visit shops that I would enjoy myself and the gifts are always a hit.  Now my only explanation for this phenomenon is that I’m turning into my mother, which isn’t […]

Kale Salsa with a Green Juice Cocktail

Salsa and Green Cocktail_Twine And Braids

Guys, get your grocery lists ready.  I am bringing you two easy recipes just in time for the weekend – a kale salsa made in the blender and a refreshing green juice cocktail.  Now those that know me, know I am not a big fan of most dips or condiments.  Seriously, I eat my salads […]

Chicken Pot Pie

Have you ever come across a recipe on pinterest or instagram and you thought it looked too good to be true?  That if you attempted to make it yourself it would never look as professional?  Everyday?  Yep, me too.  I had that same feeling when I spotted this chicken pot pie recipe from Julie of Lovely Little Kitchen, […]

DIY Flour Sack Towels

DIY Tea Towels_Twine And Braids

My dishtowel drawer was overflowing, so naturally I needed to make more.  Our current kitchen is a good size for an apartment, but it mainly consists of cabinets and appliances – not much room to decorate.  That’s when I turn to my dishtowel drawer.  Kitchen linens are an easy way to add a pop of […]

Edible Spring Centerpiece

Edible Centerpiece_Twine And Braids

I’ve always had a soft spot for edible arrangements, I mean come on, they’re delicious.  But they aren’t always the most attractive choice for a centerpiece, plus they can get a bit pricey.  Simple solution?  Make one yourself! A few years ago my mom and I had attempted our first DIY edible arrangement and we […]

Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars_Twine And Braids

My Grandma’s birthday falls on the day before St. Patrick’s Day.  So naturally, when we celebrate the theme is always shamrocks, corned beef and Irish soda bread.  Typically my offering of dessert follows suit with something sweet that requires green food dye, inevitably staining your teeth.  This time around I decided to switch things up […]

Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs

Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs_Twine And Braids

The weather has been absolutely perfect over here on the East Coast this week and it has me feeling everything spring – open windows, soft florals, outdoor dining and of course, Easter.  Now, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; I’m a sucker for any and every holiday tradition. (Need proof? See here, here, and here).  Dying […]

Supermarket Flowers

Supermarket Flowers_Twine And Braids

I LOVE having fresh flowers in my apartment.  It’s something Erick will never understand with his rationale of – “what’s the point? they’re just going to die.”  But, they make me happy.  Whether it’s a full vase of blooms or a small teacup with a single flower they’re guaranteed to brighten any room.  My favorite […]
