Make It Monday: DIY Terrarium for CHEAP

I have been coveting terrariums for a while now. Some of them are just gorgeous and I really love the idea and feel of something green in the home. Plants bring in life and make a home feel energized. This is what has been on my wishlist.
Terrarium...geodesic terrarium!



Floating vases

But really, I dont have the money to go out and buy some plants and some dirt in the hopes that I dont kill my plants.. I dont have the best track record for that kind of thing.
Anyway, so I was on Pinterest the other day (pick a day, Im always on) and I saw this little thing that read "put the green onion ends in water, and they will re-grow. You will never have to buy green onions again." Sounded good to me. Not that green onions are that expensive, but whatevs, right? Worth a shot. So, I emptied out a baby food jar, filled it with water and put the ends the jar and set in the window sill.

Within days, it started to sprout again. How lovely! (something on Pinterest finally came through for me.. lol)
But a little baby food jar with plants in the window sill did look a little 9th grade Biology class, and not in a cool way.
I was determined to find some where to put this. Insert BRILLIANT idea. I had a beautiful, but boring, apothecary jar full of shells and rocks I purchased at the dollar store a while ago (not the jar, just the shells.. now THAT would be a steal.) And thought to myself, self, this is the best idea ever. 

I pulled a few shells out to create a shallow hole and snuggled the baby jar with the green onions in it. Filled the edges around the jar to keep it in cognito and Voila!

Amazing and super cute, ridiculously cheap, Terrarium.

Hope I have inspired you today, to be creative!

Friday Giveaway : Beaded Applique Headband

 I thought this week I would give away something that I personally have made. As a gesture of gratitude toward you all, my lovely readers. In the past I made headbands using appliques. They were all different and very gorgeous. The one pictured above is one similar to the one up for grabs!
This one pictured here is the one that one lucky reader will receive.
The coloring is the same as the one above, it just looks different due to the glow from the computer monitor. The design of the beadwork is the only difference. They are the same size, so you can see from the picture where its in my hair, about how big it is and where it will sit on your head.
The head band I am giving away is silver in color with a flower designed out of rhinestones. Wrapped in frayed black silk, its elegant yet edgy.

Red Lips Via MAC Cosmetics: The perfect red lipstick for fair skin

I have been trying to find just the right shade of Red. I think its tricky, there are so many shades. You've got the orange reds, the purple reds, the mauve, burgandy, pink red. The list goes on. But for my fair skin and blonde hair I think I found the perfect color. Where else but MAC right?
This combo was just the ticket.
