DIY: From Blah Fridge to Viola Fridge

So I’ve recently become obsessed with Pinterest! I mean like seriously obsessed to the point where I may need intervention before it’s all said and done. And like most I look and wish about all of the fab things I see. But the other day while scouring through all of the wishful pins, I came across this simple DIY to spruce up my fridge and to make cleaning it a breeze. So I decided to give it a try….

You’ll need…

  • Plastic place mats – I purchased mine from Target for less than $2. They can also be found at Wal-mart and even The Dollar Tree.
  • Scissors
  • Pencil measuring

I removed everything from my fridge and cleaned the shelves. The plastic mats are larger than the shelves and need to be cut to size. Instead of using a ruler/measuring tape, I simply placed the plastic mat over the shelf, marked it with the pencil and cut. Super easy! Check out the before and after pictures.

Not only does my fridge look brighter and more inviting, cleaning it will be super easy too. All I have to do is remove the plastic mats to was rather than the entire shelf.

Will you be trying this DIY?

Nailed it!

Hey “Savvy Readers!”

It’s the weekend! And I don’t know about you but I have been looking for Friday since Monday…And one of my favorite things to do during the weekend is to give myself a mini manicure (I give myself pedicures too but I will leave that for another post). I used to go to the nail salon all the time when I was younger but I realized that it was both time-consuming and expensive.  So as a result, I fell in love with nail polish. And recently, I have been experimenting with designs and glitter polishes. So much so that I wanted to share some of my favorites with you…

I call this one “Purple Bling”…..

And this last picture is by my favorite nail design to date….

I hope you liked the pictures and nail art! If you have any questions, comments or tutorial requests please shoot me an email or leave a comment below. And I hope all you “Savvy Readers” have an awesome weekend! =)

Tribal Print Inspired Nail Polish

This season tribal print is everywhere. And I haven’t had any luck in my search for the perfect tribal print piece, so when I came across this nail tutorial on YouTube I fell in love. What better way to rock a trend then on your nails.

I opted to wear the design on my toes instead of my fingers (I figured it would last longer).

 Here are the results:
