Tips For DIY Projects

Preparing for the Summer this season started off with a ton of manual labor for me. I wanted to make room for new products (which I always stock up on for Summer) and just have a clear space in my room for when temperatures heat up. As temperatures started heating up and the labor intensified I turned to Starbucks for daily pick-me-ups and a refreshing break. The Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee is a permanent item in my home all Summer long. The bottles are available in four different flavors and I love that you can purchase it in a pack for the same price as a single cup would cost you. This is definitely convenient for me and my fellow daily coffee drinkers.

You can choose from the following  four flavors:

  • Iced Coffee + Milk
  • Low calorie Iced Coffee + Milk
  • Vanilla
  • Caramel

My personal favorites are the Vanilla and Caramel flavor. Not only do they taste delicious, but these bottle iced coffees are the perfect blend of premium Starbucks coffee and milk. Also, they're low in calorie, which is a plus for me. As I took on this room transformation project my Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee was the perfect aid in getting me through it all.

Days turned into weeks and finally my room is Summer ready. I got rid of a messy tall shelf and replaced it with a clean vanity. The vanity doubles as my writing desk, which in turn triples as my filming backdrop. There is also enough space to setup my lighting for the videos with ease.
Once that project was under control I started updating my wardrobe. Switching from Winter to Summer clothes has to be my favorite transition. I love the way my closet changes from dark shades and heavy layers to more of a colorful variety.

  1. Take before photos -- you'll be that much prouder of yourself once you compare the finished project to what you started with.
  2. Make a list of everything you will need, where to purchase and the costs.
  3. Clean everything out before purchasing new items.
