Miss Kris DIY Garland Christmas Wreath

Christmas time is here! I’m so excited! I love decorating for Christmas. It’s rare that you’ll find me decorating with the traditional red and green colors of the season. I’d much rather prefer decking the halls with metallic pinks and purples. I often find myself having to craft Christmas decor pieces (duhhhh! less “having” and more like wanting!) and this easy DIY wreath is one of my favorites.

There are so many pretty garland options out there and turning a pretty metallic garland into a glamorous wreath is as easy as they come. Plus, if you’re dollar store is hooked up with great Christmas and craft supplies, this is a cheap and chic  hashtag dollar store decor project!

Assembly Required Ad

Los Angeles, CA – I’m so excited to finally share with you the Miss Kris Assembly Required DIY kits!!! I have to be honest, I’ve been working on this little project for quite some time now. See the thing with me and projects, especially ones that I’m really passionate about, is that it takes me forever to agree (or commit as my therapist would say). I want everything to be beautiful and absolutely perfect, so I sit on projects longer than I should. Call it fear. Call it commitment issues. Call it whatever you want, but the point is nothing never gets accomplished. Finally at some point you just have to give it a go and here we are!!!

My dream in life is to inspire every woman to live a little more glamorously. The idea of a glamorous woman isn’t just about beauty, it’s about confidence. We’re not like men. We find confidence in different areas of our lives. As a woman, our entire mood can be effect by the way we feel about ourselves. Nothing changes my mood than slipping on our favorite dress and accessorizing it with fantastic piece of jewelry. With the Holidays approaching I wanted to give my bold and creative readers one more reason to be glamorous this season. These DIY kits are a chic and creative way to accessorize as you work your way through Holiday party after Holiday party. Pair them with your favorite LBD and you’re all set! Nothing gives you that extra boost than letting a fellow party goer know that “…Yes! My earrings are fabulous. Thank you! And yes I made them myself!”

There are 4 wonderful earring kits to choose from this season and they included all* the materials you’ll need to craft them. You can view and purchase them HERE. They also make great gifts this season!!

As I mentioned, I’m excited and also a little nervous to share. I hope you love these projects just as much as I do and I hope that they fill you with lots of joy! These are all projects I’ve done at some point before on my blog. So if you’re a faithful Miss Kris (Glitter ‘N Glue) reader, you might recognize them. Enjoy! Enjoy! And Happy Holidays!!! xo

Miss Kris Thanksglamming 1Thanksgiving is here! My favorite Holiday of the entire year. I love thanksgiving because it’s less about the hoopla and more about taking a second to be truly thankful, spend time with family and friends, eat and watch a lil football! Although, if you’re playing hostess this Thanksgiving you might be stressing a little to make sure everything is perfect for your guest. Well allow me to take a little stress off your shoulders and remove “decor” off your list.

Setting the Thanksgiving table is my favorite thing to do (prob because I don’t really cook). I just love the look of a well put together table. So classy. This year think about setting your table with fresh produce from the grocery store. It’s simply beautiful, evokes that farm fresh vibe (even if you’re eating canned goods) and you can pick everything up while you’re shopping at the market!

Here’s a little Youtube video to show you how:

Miss Kris Beverly Hills 3.3

Beverly Hills, CA – It’s a dress?! It’s a shirt?! I’m not really sure but when I saw this fabulous fringe piece squeezed between pieces on a rack in H&M I just knew I had to have it. When it comes to fashion, I’ve put a freeze on the purchase of black. Anything black …besides shoes _ accessories. I have WAY too many black pieces in my closet so for the next few months I’ll only be adding pieces of true value to the mix and not just another black dress.

Olive is the color of the Fall (along with my other favorite burgundy), is a great alternative to black and looks great on almost everyone. A nice, rich and warm jewel-tone that’s perfect for the season. This outfit has me feeling like a West Coast Carrie Bradshaw mixed with a hint of Troop Beverly Hills. A special thanks to the 4 way crosswalk on Rodeo for helping us achieve this shot. Have you make any olive purchases this season?

Miss Kris and Coffee 1

West Hollywood, CA – Bur first, coffee! No seriously… coffee! My day does not start with out a cup of that warm and delicious caffeine. My addiction to that early morning cup of joe actually started at a very young age when my Grandmother and Great-Grandmother with way up early, around 6 am and sit on the porch together to share a cup before their day started. I was the kinda kid that never wanted to miss out on anything, so there I was at 6 am sitting on the porch with those two beauties, sippin’ away. Although at the time they substituted hot cocoa for coffee in my cup, it was then and there in the early mornings on that simple front porch in Houston, Texas that the “but first, coffee!” tradition started for me.

Recently a new coffee shop opened in my neighborhood, Verve. I rushed down to try a cup and of course celebrated with a obligatory blogger photo shoot. Duh! Does anyone else associate any fond memories with coffee? When did coffee become such a thing? Adulting, I guess.

  • Evelyn - YES! I have a VERY similar tradition with my mother! I have been a coffee drinker as far back as I can remember. I used to steal my mom’s coffee when she wasn’t looking until she gave up and bought me a mini coffee mug from Chuck E Cheese. I used to feel so special sitting at the kitchen table every Saturday morning drinking coffee with her. We still do this every week! =DReplyCancel

    • MissKris - Awwwwww I love this! Thanks for sharing!!! xoReplyCancel

  • Michelle - I cannot start a day without my cup of coffee, but although I love it I cannot drink another one after 12 or I cannot sleep at night. Funny that it has such an influence on me!

  • Nomads By Nature - Never could get the coffee thing. Lived in a very famous coffee producing country and everyone said I would be a coffee drinker then for sure. Nope. But tea!!! oh, yeah!!!! For me it is hot tea, in early morning, on the back porch now where we are. And in that quiet hour before day I feel like I’m sitting with my dad, who when he was alive sat outside – with his coffee – watching the day get started.ReplyCancel

  • Paulina - I can relate to the waking up at 6 in the morning with my grandmother just to take a cup of coffee to begin our day.ReplyCancel
