We all love our closets and I personally spend a lot of time in mine. But, they sure can get messy easily. Many of us are always on the go and don't always have an hour to dedicate to cleaning our closets up. To help, I came up with a super quick list of things you can get rid of quickly that will make all the difference.
Fast Fashionista turns three today!
First of all, thank you to all of my readers and supporters. You all mean the world to me. I love that my little hobby/labor of love has been a place for you to come to. Be it fashion or food or whatever else I'm glad you're here for the ride. I thought this would be the perfect time to share my dressing room with you.
Before I say anything else let me take you to a cold November day when we were buying our house. "Babe I found your closet" he says after the inspection. Mk knew while we were looking that I needed two things 1) a dressing room and 2) a huge bathtub. I had plans of making one of our bedrooms into my closet. But with MK's idea we decided to roll with it and do the attic. Once we got our ducks in a row, my sweet Dad built stairs to the attic in one of our small rooms, and construction started in August of last year. I know you're going to ask so yes, I very much will miss the pink room with butterfly border.
Some of these are Iphone photos so bare with me.
So since this was just an attic there needed to be windows. It was amazing to watch our construction team put them in! One day there were no windows and just like that there were.
The contractors were in and out in two weeks and MK and I are all about DIY and we painted and painted and painted...and then painted more.
Not only did my sweet Dad build the steps he also helped MK while he put the floor down. I helped some too!
The floor was done and I couldn't have been happier with my choice. It was time to start building wardrobes. Before we started weddings and every free second we had it was building the wardrobes.
Once the wardrobes were done it was all about the island assembly. Thank goodness for this man of mine because I would not have had the patience or building smarts for that matter. Perla was always there to assist.
Building three chandeliers took up a lot of time but we got it done.
It took three months to finish the closet and I was in by the end of October. I wanted to get some final details complete before posting it online. Here are pictures we just took yesterday. Let me know what you think?
I'm so happy to be able to share this with you. I want to take a quick second and thank my Husband for putting so much time and effort into this project all to make me happy. I lucked out that for sure. Thank you MK!
It's been a really crazy week, as per usual. Tons of fall shoots and constructing my closet as been very time consuming. Sharing a quick outfit pic of me on the job since that is all we have been doing and having a blast too! Seriously guys, this blanket scarf is everything. Best SEVEN DOLLARS I've ever spent.
But one thing is for sure my sweet Husband has been begging for Mini Pumpkin Pies for like ..long. And nothing screams fall quite like baking. With a roast in the oven and apple candles wafting through my house it felt like exactly the right moment to get baking.
I make these little guys every year! Here is my recipe:
1 box pie crust
1 15oz can pumpkin
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 tbsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
Whipped cream for topping
Preheat oven 425, Mix everything but pie crust and whipped cream (obviously) , and spray muffin tin with spray butter. Since I used a mini muffin tin, I used the top of a champagne glass to make perfect circles and put one on the bottom push it as far as it goes and then add another circle. Push into the pan until it comes up to just the edge. Fill 3/4 of the way up and pop in the oven for about 15 minutes or until the pumpkin mixture isn't runny looking. Top with whipped cream and enjoy!
