Vlogging Workshop: My Valentine Wreath!

my valentine wreath

I accidentally started loving wreaths on my  front door. I went years living a wreath free life and then I think I had to make one for a Crafty Mom challenge. I loved the look of that wreath on my door so much that I started buying and/or making wreaths for all sorts of occasions. I’ve made a Halloween chic wreath, a Valentine pom pom wreath, a monogrammed, and a garden hose wreath. And Pinterest is constantly throwing more wreaths in my face so of course last year’s pom pom wreath will never do for this year. Just as an A List celebrity would never be caught dead repeating an outfit, my front door too, prefers an updated look each season. After seeing some really amazing Valentine floral wreaths I decided it was time to tackle another one. At the craft store, however, I discovered a really neat little time saving trick. Take a look!:

This week I’m featuring Tico and Tina because last week they shared a hilarious video of themselves trying to execute a handful of couples yoga poses that Tina found on Pinterest. I was really impressed at their ability to even come close to some of these posts. Not sure I could get my husband to give it a go, but I loved watching Tico and Tina try it!:

Vlogging Workshop: What You Missed

This week I highlighted some of my finest moments on YouTube in 2014. In retrospect I wish I had added in some of my most popular hair tutorials and dance videos, but oh well. There’s no recreating that kind of beauty and here’s hoping for plenty more to come in 2015! Take a look at what you missed:

Vlogging Workshop: New Year’s Eve Makeup

Vlogging Workshop: Minus The Vodka

grinch kid friendly

Happy Christmas Eve!! Are we vlogging today? I don’t even know…but I have a video to share if you do! I actually filmed the Holiday Style tag and then completely overestimated the time I would have on my hands to edit it considering the mad amount of holiday shopping and cleaning I’ve had to do. And by “holiday shopping and cleaning” I just mean “drinking alone”. Speaking of drinking alone, the video I’m sharing today is a non-alcoholic version of  the Grinch Punch I made earlier this week. Kainoa snuck in on the video so I let him put his own drink together, minus the vodka:
