grown-up underwear.

Don’t worry; this post is rated G. I’m talking about half slips! Never did I ever think I would own one, but since I own a sheer dress, a half slip was a requirement. So off I went to purchase one, a little shy, because, well, my grandma used to wear these! But guess what – it turns out I’m a big fan of half slips, especially in this beige-pink shade. It’s silky and smooth, and super comfortable. It actually adds a layer of warmth. Best of all, no more see-through dress. I’m keepin’ it classy. And now a clip from my favorite Filipina YouTube star, Christine Gambito aka HappySlip, on Panties. Are half slips a must-have or a no-way? Share your feelings below!

origami hearts.

Today’s DIY is brought to you by super nachos from Casa Latina and Missy Elliot’s pumped up performance at the Super Bowl Halftime show (what a treat!). Valentine’s is just around the corner and I’ve been prepping for a few themed crafternoons. I’ve got hearts on the craft brain and thought I’d share this origami favorite. I used to fold these origami hearts in junior high back when my besties and I wrote notes to each other every day. Remember those days? Even though we saw each other during the day, we managed to fill pages. I still have my box full of handwritten notes, each one hand-folded and filled with so much love. Whip out some paper – notebook paper works perfectly – and get to folding! Scroll through the gallery below for the complete tutorial. Do you have a favorite origami project? Share below!
