Mickey & Me.

Happy Saturday!! I’ve been waiting for today all week. It is 73 degrees in Austin today and it does not feel like December, but the Posadas are creepin’ in. Yay for Christmas food!

Since the weather is amazing, I decided to wear my favorite crop top. I may have over done my outfit for a day of errands…but I feel good and that is all that matters anyway.

Here are some pictures of my #ootd taken by my talented friend Ryan Walters at http://www.somethingstandard.com/

IMG_5159IMG_5156I really love these Gap boyfriend jeans. I was a little skeptical about wearing “loose pants” since I have hips, and thought they would make me look wider. However they are the most comfortable jeans I own, and look pretty awesome paired with a blazer. IMG_5162IMG_5187IMG_5177

These rings….

DIY| Faux Marble Coasters

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I’m sure you are all planning your gifts for the special people in your lives. Let me give you an easy and fancy DIY idea that can make a great gift for the holidays.

This DIY is amazing, it actually uses clay instead of marble which is soft to the touch and absorbent.  Not only does it look like the real thing, but all coasters came in at under $8!

Heres what you will need:

-Premo Oven Bake Clay in two colors

-Glass or Mug

-Rolling pin

-Cutting board

-Parchment paper

-Metal bake sheet DSC_0029Start by mixing the two different color premo clays together with your hands, mix the two colors as much as you would like. 
DSC_0035Flatten the clay using the rolling pin by covering it with two pieces of parchment paper. DSC_0049Roll it out to a thickness of about 1/8″. Using a large size mug or glass with a thin or sharp rim cut your clay into circles. Repeat this step one through three until you have as many coasters as you would like. I made 5!DSC_0055Then bake at 275 °F  for 30 minutes on a parchment lined baking sheet. Take them out and your done!DSC_0112DSC_0117DSC_0121

Your going to love the finish product! All you have to do now is wrap them and check…..one custom handmade gift done! You can see in some of the photos that mine have a slight sparkle that looks like real stone or quartz. Which I think make them look more luxe.
