As one year ends and another begins, here is a short and sweet post about capturing special moments, brought to you by Anna. May your weekend be filled with love, laughter, and cherished memories. Happy New Year, everyone!
This is the time of the year when we tend to reflect on our lives and our loves. Not only have I fallen in love once in this lifetime, but I've fallen in love with two special little people. The day I first met them both, it was love at first sight. I knew they were coming; I had time to prepare. You prepare their nurseries, buy special toys, fold sweet smelling clothes. Your belly is rubbed, your body aches. But, finally the wait is over and into your arms is placed the most precious gift. And it is love. A love that will never go away however horrible the day can be and a love that grows as they grow. It makes me not take a moment for granted and to hold them and hug them for as long as I can.

Have you ever heard of nail plates? Most people haven't yet, but they're starting to catch on for creating gorgeous, intricate nail designs right at home. They're more sustainable (read: reusable over and over) than those cute little nail stickers that are so popular right now, and you can try out any color combination you like!
Hello there! My name's Sam and I'm from a little blog called My Latest Obsession. I have an obsession with making pretty things and just bought a bottle of gold glitter that I needed to put to good use! So what better to make than a glitter star hairclip?! It's really easy and super cute, a perfect little accessory to add a little magic to your outfit!
What You Need:
Glitter (color of your choice)
Mod Podge (glue that dries clear)
Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
Cut out a star from your cardstock, about 2-3" from point to point. Then apply glue on the star and coat with glitter. Let dry.
After your first coat of glue and glitter is dry, add another coat of glue and glitter. When that dries, add one last coat of glue to seal the glitter so it won't fall off. Let dry.
For the last step, use a hot glue gun to attach a hairclip to the star. And voila! A glitter star hairclip!
I wish I could wear this everyday! It makes me feel kind of fanciful, but doesn't overdo it with the glitz and glam.
I was born in Canada and live in Canada, yet my heart seems to always be in New York City and I wanted to create a photo collection with a few photos I took the last time I visited New York. I love taking photos that capture something unique and that will help me remember exactly where I was when I took the photo. I hope that others will enjoy these photos too!
