An Owl Necklace Makeover {tutorial and giveaway}

Do you ever have pieces of inexpensive jewelry where you look at them and say, “I wonder if I could make this cuter?” I often buy cheaper jewelry and think “I am sure 1,000 other women have this exact same piece of jewelry now.” Well, here is one quick solution to fix both problems..you can make it cute AND have a totally unique piece to wear!
A few weeks ago, I bought a few of these owl necklaces from Pick Your Plum to give as gifts. When I got them, I loved them. You can see from the before, they are super cute necklaces, but then I thought, I want to paint one and see what it looks like…so that is exactly what I did.
I just got out some acrylic paints that I had on hand and went to town. I love how it turned out..so bright and cheery and in one of my favorite color palettes right now.
It took me about 20 minutes to paint it and about 10 more to dry. I know this isn’t for all jewelry, but a fun way to take an item that is cheaper and not so unique and turn it around to something really fun to wear.
I even thought how fun this would be to do as a craft night. Imagine getting 10 women together and all painting at the same time and then seeing how different they all are because of color preferences and then how you place the color on it as well! Wouldn’t that be fun?!
SO I have a necklace leftover..does anyone want to give it a try?

Enjoy Hair Care Giveaway

Enjoy Hair Care was kind enough to send me a variety of products to review for kiki creates. of course i immediately got busy and have been using these products daily:

below are some common hair mishaps, and their solutions:

Limp Hair- if you need some serious volume, smoothness and shine, Enjoy Volumizing Mousse is a good start. it works great as a root volumizer, just apply to the base of your hair shaft, then proceed with styling. volumizing is now easy!

Frizzy Hair- my hair is neither straight nor curler, it is a weird inbetween that must be blow-dried. Enjoy Straightener is an excellent product for helping to straight and control coarse or curler hair. it leaves your hair soft and smooth.

Dull Hair- ever wonder how women on t.v. get that glamourous shine? now it too can be yours, just try a little Enjoy Shine and Smooth. it helps eliminate frizziness and makes your hair soft and silky without weighing it down. this perfect product is also great for humidity by helping to lock in moisture and keep humidity at bay.

the whole product line is incredible. products ranging from gels, to antifrizz, Enjoy has you covered (in fact, Tman has been using the gel…and likes it!) if you are interested in purchasing any of the products, you can find them by visiting Enjoy’s website. 

just to see how easy to use and effective the products are, i put together a hair tutorial video for you. enjoy!

Look to the Lighthouse..{free download}

This last weekend was the General Young Women’s Broadcast. For those of you who are not members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, one time a year, all of the young women of the church (ages 12-18) and their mothers come together for a meeting specifically with the General Young Women’s presidency and the First Presidency to hear messages of faith and to feel inspired. 
This year I so adored the message that President Thomas S. Monson gave in which he spoke of the crazy time we live in these days and the principles of faith that can help us rise above them!  You can watch the talk here.  One of my favorite visuals was  of the lighthouse and how he compared it to the Lord. Isn’t that a sweet comparison…and how true it is! It is the Lord who can warn us, help us and lead us to safety away from the stormy seas around us. I have certainly felt that before in my life and know that this is such a relevant message today (and not just to the younger girls!)  So I made a quick print up of this fun quote to remind me and hope you can find a place to put it in your home to remind you as well!
Again, feel free to use this for personal use..give one to a friend..use it in Young Women’s, etc. It comes in one of 8 colors..so take one or take all!
