Valentine’s Day is a little less than a month away! A lot of people hate on Valentine’s Day, but I enjoy taking a day to celebrate everyone I love! I put together this Valentine’s Day gift guide in case you traditionally give gifts for V-day. Gifts are not necessary, though; a handwritten note in a Valentine can be just as special!

When I started blogging in the summer of 2015, I never imagined how difficult it would be. Despite learning a ton over the last 2.5 years about photo editing, content preparation, and search engine optimization, I struggle to define success in blogging in a way that brings me joy.

DIY Velvet Bow Hair Ties

DIY Velvet Bow Hair Ties

The velvet trend has been going strong this season, showing up in the form of dresses, pants, shirts, and accessories! Today I’m sharing quick and easy DIY velvet bow hair ties. They add the perfect feminine detail to any look, and would make perfect gifts for your Galentines this year!



Step 1

Cut 3 lengths of ribbon: 9 in., 12 in., and 14 in.


Step 2

Fold the ends of the 9 in. ribbon to the center and glue in place. Make sure the velvet side is facing out! Repeat for the 12 in. ribbon. (You may need something heavy to place on the ribbons while the glue dries).

Step 3

Glue the folded 9 in. ribbon piece centered on the folded 12 in. ribbon piece.


Step 4

Wrap the 14 in. ribbon around the glued ribbons and hair tie and tie in place. Adjust the tail pieces to lay how you want them to. This takes a little finagling!

Step 5

Add glue under the bow knot. You may want to glue the tail pieces to keep them in place.


Step 6:

Let the glue dry. Tada! Now you have pretty bows for yourself or friends!

I would love to know if you try this DIY!

Initially, I didn’t think enough happened over this year to warrant a whole blog post, but when I sat down to think about it I realized this year was quite eventful!

  • I was finally back to seeing patients today after the holiday weekend was extended by TWO snow days. I was going a little crazy being cooped up inside! The clinic had faux marble counter tops, so of course I had to take a pic of my stethoscope on it. (oh, Instagram, you’re weird, but fun). #medschool #lifeloveandmedicine
