Every girl loves the idea of wearing a crown; whether it’s adjoined in jewels or flowers the thought always brings up fairy tale endings, which have stuck with me for years. Yesterday I desperately needed a break from my homework and decided to embrace the little girl in me by making a floral crown of my very own (click here for instructions how). It was a quick and easy project which turned out to be the absolute perfect afternoon getaway. Clearly it doesn’t take much to make me happy, and as one of my all time favorite icons once said, “Keep smiling, because life is a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”- Marilyn Monroe
