Sharing this one for all my dreamers and doers out there in need of a little motivation this Monday morning. Here’s we are, Monday… a fresh start! Wishing you all the best week yet. xo
I’m absolutely THRILLED to share my editorial feature on Darling Magazine. I feel in love with Darling some time ago and I was honored when asked to be apart of their website. While I was in the Palm Springs last week, Sylvia Gunde and I headed to the desert to shot this glamorous (and windy) editorial. I’m so excited that I finally get to share!!! Click here to see the full spread.
As many of you know I was a wardrobe stylist for yeeears before focusing on my blog full time. It’s been many months since I’ve style a editorial, but this project re-energized and reignited my love for the stylist life! Maybe it’s time for me to pick up my stylist kit once again. Enjoy!

Hot pink chair? YES PLEASE!!!!! I gave this basic chair from IKEA a hot makeover courtesy of a can of Krylon spray paint. Adding a fresh coat of paint is an easy way to personalize a piece of furniture and make it fit the decor scheme of your home, but I personally hate brush painting projects. I prefer to apply paint with a spay paint, but if applied incorrectly your paint job can look just AWFUL… trust me I’ve butchered many a chair.

If you’re anything like me, the thought of going into the office on a Monday morning in the middle of Summer is the most dreadful thing you can think of. Ugggggg Well I’m thinking we all might be in need of a little fabulous inspiration to get us through the day. Last week Paris was host to the Fall 2014 Haute Couture shows. One of my absolute favorites was the Giambattista Valli collection. Seriously, I want EVER piece in this collection. To me this collection reads permanent vacation. I’m loving all the graphic prints, the fun colors and of course the headpieces. This collection is everything vintage and glam and is loaded with tons of DIY inspiration for the brave and crafty.

Complete honestly right up front… Pinterest is to blame for this project! These watermelon kegs have been blowing up my Pinterest feed and with the 4th of July coming up I thought now was the best time to try to make on. I have about a 80% Pinterest project success rate. I was worried about how this would turn out because I see lots of room for leakage potential, but Id’ have to say it worked like a charm!!!! Watch the #DIY video here and don’t forget to subscribe (here) to the Miss Kris YouTube channel while you’re there. This keg the perfect accessory to your upcoming Summer get together. Now to find the perfect watermelon and vodka cocktail recipe…
Hashtag this and hashtag that! There’s that joke floating around the internet about how social media has taking over or lives so much so that some of us speak in hashtags in our daily vernacular -> watch! I have to admit that I’ve been guilty of this in the pass. So obviously when Crossroads Trading invited myself and a few other blogger affiliated with their Style Council to speak on a panel about blogging and lead their managers retreat in a few DIYs, I thought these social media hashtag tees would be a perfect project! #Brilliant #iKnow #DIYGenius #Humility #LOL
This project is pretty simple after you get over the fear of working with iron on transfer paper. The printing instructions can be complicated so my recommendation is to pick the transfer paper that has the instructions clearly printed on the box. You’ll have to print your image in reverse, so just make sure they spell it out for you clearly on the box so that there’s no confusion! You can purchase transfer paper at your local craft and hobby store. Once you have your paper, follow the instructions to print out your favorite hashtag and then iron it on your shirt. Some of my faves: #nofilter, #ootd, #fashionblogger or your can custom create your own hashtag for your event: #CrossRoadsCamp2014, #KristenAndDrakeGetMarried
We all had such a wonderful time at Crossroads Camp. As long as I’ve lived in California, I’d never been up North to wine country. It’s simply breathtaking. I’ll have to make plans to visit again real soon. In other news, I can mark “road trip” off my Summer to-do list!!! Below are a few instapics from our trip up to Sonoma.
