Winter Decorating Post Christmas

The holidays are over and before heading back to work this week Erick and I used our last day off to de-Christmas our apartment.  The stockings are down, ornaments packed and the tree is no longer standing tall in the living room. Christmas decorations always make any room feel warm and cozy so it’s always […]

Have I mentioned that I love holiday traditions? JK, I know I have (here, here, here…I’ll stop).  Since living with Erick we’ve made it a point to create our own traditions while carrying with us those that we each experienced while growing up. Our first Christmas morning together, three years ago, we decided to make […]

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

I am really squeaking in this recipe at the last-minute here because Thanksgiving is tomorrow!  Last November around this time I talked about the chocolate chip pumpkin bread my grandma makes every year, read about that here, and I wanted to check back in to share the details.  For twenty-eight years of my life I was […]

I started Twine & Braids as a creative outlet to share recipes and DIYs, lifestyle tips and the like. But before all that my lifelong passion has always been wellness.  My full-time career is within the health and wellness field and you may notice me make some healthy swaps in my recipes here and there. […]

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 […]

Edible Spring Centerpiece

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

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 […]

DIY Candle Holders: Two Ways

Growing up my mom had window clings for every occasion; March had shamrocks, with April came the Easter eggs, and in February, of course, she had hearts.  Our home had four pane windows and french doors in the living room so we would place a simple red heart in the center of each pane.  These were always […]

Holiday Wrapping

I think my favorite part of the holidays is wrapping gifts.  I mean, spending time with family and friends is great and all but the day you’re ready to wrap up your presents is just magical.  It marks the end of the shopping, the running around to find a gift or stocking stuffer for everyone […]
