Happy Thanksgiving

I've got so much to be thankful for this year, my family and friends being the most important. Without their support, I really don't know where I'd be. I'm also thankful for my longtime knack with hair. I'm beyond lucky to have such an amazing skill and even more fortunate to have a huge command of very loyal clients. Now, last but not certainly not least, I'm thankful for our freshAss new house, there is something about "owning" a home that leaves such a sense of fulfillment. What are you thankful for? I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday as much as I did!

Mezuzah Modification

Before we moved in, we noticed mezuzahs embellishing all the doors of our house, this made me so happy. I immediately made note of the rusty one on the back door, drooling at the thought of a simple and fun project.  Mom told me you're really not supposed to take a mezuzah down after it's been hung, however this one desperately needed a facelift.
Shabbat Shalom, have a great weekend!
I'm out. -SaLLy

OnePiece Wonders



Table Turning

So this table has been welcoming us in our foyer since we've moved in, it fits ever so perfectly in our entryway and has turned out to be a central spot to keep our keys and such.  As practical as it is, let's be real: the paint color needed to hit the road. I posted a few foyer pics last Friday that really inspired me and instantly got my creative juices gushing. Two cans of spray paint later, here's my latest before-n-after!

Appalling Adjustment

I'm so very sad to discover Drew's latest fall hairdo, the color & cut both look horrible! I'm totally shocked as she always has head turning hair and this epic display of fug just makes me want to turn away. #whatwasherstylistthinking

Adorned Antlers

DIY Woodgrain Rug

No-Bake Cakeballs

I got to try one of these little balls of heaven at the office today and it was nothing short of amazing. The recipe is simple and there's literally no baking, or use of eggs. I'm going to give it a whirl with chocolate or strawberry  batter this weekend. Thanks, Alex!

Indivisible Initiative

Starbucks and The CFDA (Council for Fashion Designers of America) have pulled together
to help generate and sustain jobs in underserved communities nationwide. As a thank you, donors who give $5 or more will receive the red, white, and blue wristband with the word “Indivisible” stamped on a metal charm. All wristbands are handmade in the United States from U.S.-manufactured components, and 100 percent of proceeds will go to OFN to provide loans to community businesses across the country. Visit any of the three links I've posted and act now. My donation has been made, has yours?

RIP Heavy D

I'm despondent over the loss of Dwight Arrington Myers aka Heavy D and absolutely shed tears on my way home last night. I've been a fan of his music since my middle school days, I can totally still hear my mom chanting the lyrics "black coffee no sugar no cream" like it was yesterday. Though the "Overweight Luva" might not be with us any longer, his infectious music will without a doubt play on forever.
His last live performance, BET awards one month ago:(
