Taking joy in life is a woman’s best cosmetic.
After lounging around in a friend’s pool this weekend, soaking up the rays, I am not ready to get back to work today. I did find some motivation looking back at my favorite Pinterest pins. I can’t wait to put some of them to the test! Here’s what I am most excited to try out in this week’s edition of Sally’s Pins.
Pallet Backed Bookshelf: Remove the cheap cardboard from the back of shelving units and add some interest with pallet wood. I have just the bookshelf I want to try this on.
Chocolate Covered Banana Split Bites: I die for chocolate covered fruit! This is such a fun twist on the classic banana split.
Home Décor Tips, Infographics & Cheat Sheets: Everyone should check out this website. There are so many good tips that can improve a room’s layout.
Whole House Color Scheme: I like the idea of having the colors in my house flow from room to room. Using this guide you can have a red kitchen, green living room, blue bedroom, and grey bathroom.
Princess Silhouettes: Just looking at these charming prints brings me back to my youth. Their simple design has a modern twist with the color choice used.
How to Paint Bathroom Tiles: I am all about finding inexpensive ways to update my home. Painting a wall changes a room dramatically, so I am hoping the find the same effect with painted tile.
How to Make Easy Gazpacho: I love soup, but in the summer it rarely crosses my mind. That was until I saw this recipe for gazpacho. Cool tomato based soup sounds perfect in this 100-degree weather.
Braided Half Up Hairstyle: This is a fun way to pull your hair off your face with a chic braid. I like any hairstyle that looks easy to pull off.
Chili’s Copycat Salsa: I think I go to Chili’s Bar and Grill just to eat their chips and salsa. I can’t wait to see how close this recipe is. Now if only I can find some thin tortilla chips to go with it.
25 Handmade Gifts Under $5: I know there is at least one time a year that this website will come in handy. I always need ideas for handmade gifts to give my neighbors during the holidays. I will be coming back to this website for sure.
The Best French Vinaigrette: After trying the French Poodle Vinaigrette, I have been on the hunt to find a dressing that compares. This vinaigrette looks like it might come in pretty close.
Personalized Dog Collar: I don’t know about you guys, but I can hear my dogs coming from a mile away with their jingling collars. What a weird concept that dogs should be seen not heard.
Olive Oil, Garlic, Chives and Romano Cheese Mashed Potatoes: These are my dream potatoes. From the garlic to the Romano Cheese, my mouth is watering in anticipation.
Aqua Ice Cavern Necklace: Turquoise and gold are my go-to accessory colors. The shape of this necklace is perfect to dress up any outfit, but I really love the crystalized look of the stones.
Yellow and Gray Color Scheme: They say the color yellow has a way of making people happier. I need to think of the perfect room I want to cheer up in my house with these fun patterns.
What color makes you the happiest?
