Studio 10 Tampa DIY Easter Basket

I had so much fun today on the Studio 10 Tampa Show making a DIY tutu Easter basket. Easter is such a sweet holiday to share with family, friends and children. It’s religious significance is special but it’s also a day filled with magic as the Easter bunny appears alongside Easter bonnets, people dressed in their Sunday best, and of course the traditional Easter egg hunt which calls for a fanciful Easter basket to collect all your darlings sweet finds in! I have always loved making an Easter basket for my daughter and now it’s time for you to learn how to make one yourself.

Supplies: Basket, Tulle in desired color or colors, Ribbon (at least 4 yards), Silk flowers, Other desired embellishments such as crystals, buttons, vintage jewelry, Glue Gun with Glue Sticks, Scissors, and Spray paint in your desired color.

Step One: Spray paint your basket your desired color and let dry.

Step Two: Cut your tulle into 12” x 4” strips.

Step Three: Using two layers of cut tulle at a time use a crochet needle to pull your tulle through the slots in the basket and tie with a simple slip knot. Repeat this step around your basket alternating colors.

Step Four: Use your scissors to trim your tulle around your basket so that it is even.

Step Five: Embellish your basket with silk flowers, ribbon bows, buttons, vintage jewelry pieces around your basket and the basket handle anyway that you like. I love to add a few Swarovski crystals with my glue gun when I am finished for a little added touch. Get creative and have fun making it your Easter basket for your little darling to treasure forever!

Incorporate Love Into Your Home Year-round

Love_Heart_Valentines_Day_Julee_Ireland_TelevisionFebruary 14 is the day that we celebrate love but I believe that love should be celebrated every day.  I recently had the pleasure of sharing these four simple tips to incorporate love into your home and life year-round on the Studio 10 Tampa show with Stephanie Webb and Toby Hall and I wanted to share them with all of you. Yes, that’s Toby Hall as in the former Major Baseball League pro baseball player for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. He was the co-host for the day and it was quite fitting as his Anniversary was on February 14! We had a lot of fun. Be sure to watch the video clip on our blog and I hope these tips bring lots of love into your home.

Love_Valentines_Day_Julee_Ireland_Studio10_Tampa_News_Toby_Hall

1. The entry to your home is your first impression and it’s the perfect place to set the tone for Love. People tend to glance to the right as they enter a home so it’s a great place to display a beautiful table with an open bowl or a family or couples portrait on the wall holding hands, sharing a kiss or family hug. Remember, if you enter a home with a feeling of Love, you will exit with Love.
2. Out of our five senses, the strongest is our sense of smell. Scents remind us of people, places, and life experiences that we love. A scent has the ability to transcend us to another time and place. Placing candles or essential oil room fragrance throughout your home in various scents that fit the mood that you wish to evoke in each room, is a great way to connect your sense of smell to your heart and home. You can easily create feelings of happiness, harmony, tranquility and Love. Lemon and Orange is uplifting, Lavender is calming and is known to relive stress, Eucalyptus promotes balance, and Vanilla or Ylang Ylang is alluring and romantic. My candle pick besides my own soy candles at www.juleeireland.com is a line I discovered at Cosmoprof called Naturally Bare. These are Reiki Infused Organic Soy Candles with a line of body products. I love that they are all natural, affordable and I love the clean sophisticated look of the line!  www.naturally-bare.com
3. There’s no better way to bring instant love into any room in your home than through a vase of fresh, fragrant, colorful flowers. Choose a vase that fits the look and feel of your room and use a variety of seasonal stems that match your accent color in your room to brighten your space year around. When it comes to roses my favorite company is Spring in the Air Luxury Roses.  What could be better than two dozen Roses fresh from the grower in Colombia sent straight to your doorstep? I order the roses monthly and because they are fresh they last two to three times longer than flowers that you purchase through a supplier such as a florist or grocery store.  They are the most beautiful roses ever! I promise you will love them. www.springintheair.com It’s a Glam Thing exclusive. Use coupon code WOW at checkout for 15% off your order!
4. Surround yourself with Love at home by displaying meaningful art, photos, books, or words to remind you daily of the things that matter most in your life. Make your home a gallery filled with Love. Wayfair is my go to place for everything for the home. They have great prices and something for everyone’s taste.  The wall art I featured on the show is from Wayfair.  www.wayfair.com

I hope these tips and a few of my favorite brands help you to celebrate love year-round. xoxo

A “summer nights dream”

After hours of preparation, excitement and few gallons of hairspray later, the VIP Exclusives Fashion Show was underway at the Tampa Convention Center making it a “summer night’s dream”. Founded in 2004 by business man and entrepreneur Terrance Shaw, VIP has brought nothing but top notch service since day one. And that is exactly what they brought to Tampa Bay. The evening started off with celebrity performers opera singer and ballet aerialist, Jacqueline Valdez & Jason Rex of Infusion Remax. A beautiful duet that reminded me of cirque de Solei meets opera. Jacqueline and Jason are also survivors of cancer and Sjogren disease.

After that the designers & models started things off with a bang and a few feathers. The show featured designers Lacie Cupani and Cupani Fashion, David President, MEROCKI, Jacqueline Saldana, Jackie Hutcherson, Nailuj Villarroel, Aleksandra Salo, Jessica Rios All Brides 2 Be & Formalwear & Adreamrocks! We had everything from formal wear, bathing suits, blinged out bathing suits and towels and so much more. Sometimes words cannot express just how amazing these shows are! Some designers and models even flew in from out of town just to participate. At the end of the night awards were given to the best designer & best international model. US Gold & Silver donated rings to the best designs, All Brides to Be by Jessica Rios and Best International Model Abby Marie Santiago. Congratulations ladies!
