Fellow Gator, Blair from the Atlantic-Pacific blog featured the above striped American Apparel bag that I instantly fell in love with. The Just B blog featured DIY instructions that I tweaked to add the striped pattern. I lined up the in painter’s tape to create the stripes and spaces between each. Click here for Just B blog’s DIY instructions. American Apparel has many bag colors to choose from…click here to view the bag choices. So fun! Can’t wait to use my new bag.

My assistant found this awesome bracelet on the Just B blog and we just had to make one. With some hex nuts from the local hardware store and lavender memory thread from Michael’s (we couldn’t find the suggested twine), we recreated the hex nut bracelet. For DIY Braided Hex Nut Bracelet instructions from Honestly…WTF click here. If you don’t feel like making your own, you can buy one here.

Recently I participated in the Sterling Vineyards Ultimate Host Challenge in partnership with Pizzazzerie. The objective: entertaining on a dime. You have six guests coming over, a $75 budget and Sterling Vintner’s Collection Cabernet or Chardonnay. How do you put on a gathering for six on a shoestring budget?
My sister and I decided to give a spin on the traditional game day and add a little glam to it. See the above inspiration board for how we would host a Glam Game Day for Under $75.
