The most glamorous of holidays, National Lipstick Day, is this coming Tuesday and our friends at Amazon looked at lipstick sales and search terms to determine the most lipstick obsessed cities in the United States as well as the most popular lipstick shades summer 2014.

Would you believe that people in Miami, Portland?! and Atlanta buy more lipstick than in any other cities in the US? Looks like NYC has to up its lipstick game!

Be sure to pop by next week, I’ll have a fun pink lipstick how-to.

Momstrology | The AstroTwins’ Guide to Parenting {Giveaway}

Momstrology-Book

When asked about my sons’ personalities, I will almost always mention that they’re Virgos and were born the years of the ox and dragon in the Chinese zodiac. I think those little tidbits says so much, even to those who only dabble in astrology.

While I don’t exactly live my life by the moon and the stars, I’ve always found astrology fascinating and am intrigued by the idea that different aspects of our nature are affected by our zodiac signs and birth charts. As such, I was super excited to read Momstrology: The AstroTwins’ Guide to Parenting Your Little One by the Stars, and am still thinking through all the thoughtful advice it provided me as a Leo mom (with a Scorpio fourth house ruler). Momstrology is loaded with sign-specific advice to make sense of parenting from an astrological point of view accounting for the strengths and weaknesses of each sign between mother/child and father/child, whether you’re new to astrology or really into it.

With summer in full force and outdoor entertaining at its peak, I’m happy to welcome Rheney Williams back with a DIY Mason Jar Pendant Light project that’s sure to get your creative juices flowing and brighten up any outdoor space:

DIY Mason Jar Pendant

Addressing the lighting in and around your home is one of the quickest ways to dress up drab spaces and add a pop of brilliant luminescence to even the most mundane of areas. Many times, you can incorporate your personality and style in a single fixture. And even if your home is fantastic as it is, there’s always room to glam it up a notch!

That’s just what I’ve done with these simple DIY Mason jar hanging pendant lights. I’ve taken an ordinary product and enhanced it by combining a few equally commonplace items to create something truly extraordinary. The best part is that you can make your own with little to no DIY experience and minimal cost.

Start by gathering your materials. You’ll need:
