Handmade tuesday: DIY hair accessories

Handmade Tuesday is so simple and wearable this week.  I love hair accessories and honestly they are to expensive for something really cheaply made. I love  elastic hair tie seen on Emi-Jay website a wonderfully two girls that donate part of profits to charity,but honestly the $19.99 for eight is bit steep for me. Anthropologie has them as well for $12.00 for five. Imagine my amazement when I walked into Micheal’s to find the elastic band in 60 inches for $3.99. So I had to try to make my own hair accessories. 

What you need:
 Elastic band
Accents / flowers
Fabric glue

Take the elastic band and cut desired length. Tie at the end with two knots. Add the accents simply add to fabric glue on the accents and firmly press it to the elastic band. Put it some place it wont be disturbed for at least two hours. I let sit over night before wearing it.

Home edition: Outside garden

This Friday we replanted the bed outside our front door. I am going to be honest gardening is not my thing even though my mom is amazing landscaper and gardener. I guess I didn’t get that gene. So I enlisted my friend Candice to help and we planted succulents. Hopefully even I can’t kill them. 

I like the way it looks simple and clean. So here is peak at our front.

Fourth of July trip: Monterey Bay Aquarium

Hope everyone had great 4th of July weekend. We decide to do a quick trip up north to Monterey Bay Aquarium. It was a fast two day tip and really fun. It was a lot of driving for two days and we are still trying to recover from it. 
   It was really cool little town with so much to do. We spent most of the day at in the Aquarium itself and Cannery row the street the aquarium is on. The Aquarium had two special exhibits that were phenomenal! The first one was all on jellyfish and we spent most of our time just looking at the different jellyfish. The are amazing animals and so gorgeous.

The second exhibit was on seashores. They are really unique little creatures that I really had no idea about. The babies are so small you can’t help stop and oohh and ahhing over them. The are very interesting little guys.

The aquarium was really amazing and perfect for kids. Tons of interactive exhibits that will excite kids and parents alike touching and get close up to sea birds and sea life.

At end of our day we wandered around Cannery Row and checked out the stores. I searched for my vintage postcards and we picked up way to much candy at true candy store.We had great time and I defiantly want to go back.
