free gift tag printable

printable blush gift tags
I've begun to wrap some Christmas gifts, and I'm in love with a blush pink palette for the holidays- rather than red and green. (And it's no secret that blush pink is one of my favorite colors!) I made some printable gift tags because I can never find the perfect ones in the store, and I'm sharing them with you! Check out the end of the post for the download link.

diy gourmet salt gift

Now that Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is upon us, it's time to start making Christmas gifts! I've had some projects planned for a while, so I'm excited to finally start working on them. Today I have a DIY for a little set of gourmet salts! I've been seeing these in the stores but I thought it would be so fun to make it rather then buy it, and I love how it turned out! Keep reading to find out how I did it.

smoky mountain backpacking

smoky mountains
Last weekend my friends and I went on a short backpacking trip in the Smoky Mountains! It was such an amazing hike, so I thought I'd share a few photos of the trip. We spent three days on the trail, climbing Mt. Sterling to an elevation of 5,843, descending to camp by a beautiful creek, and walking through a wonderland of orange and red trees. Our trip turned out to be more adventurous than we were expecting- we found a dog who saved us from a potential bear attack, did a bit of unplanned night-hiking, and climbed a fire tower on top of the mountain to see a spectacular view! It was a perfect way to spend a fall weekend in the mountains.

vegan toast recipes

vegan toast recipes
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day- I go to bed looking forward to what I'm going to eat in the morning! Lately I've been having toast almost every morning, so I decided to share a few recipe ideas with you! These don't just have to be for breakfast, I would eat these for lunch or a mid-day snack too! Or make these for your next brunch party and I'm sure you'll have everyone instagramming their food. ;)

diy tea gift

diy tea giftAs the weather is getting colder, a hot cup of tea is my choice of drink. I love making little things for my friends so I put together this cute gift for autumn!  I found this glass vial at Michael's and added some dried tea leaves. I wrapped some string around the top and made a little tag and it became an adorable little present!
