Fashion Fridays: DIY Aztec Print Easter Eggs

DIY watercolor aztec print easter eggs Fashion Fridays: DIY Aztec Print Easter Eggs

Happy Friday! In the spirit of Easter and the popular Aztec print trend, we have decided to merge the two into a fun DIY for Fashion Friday.

You’ll need:
1. Eggs either hard boiled or plastic decorating eggs
2. Acrylic paint in your choice of colors, paint brush
3. Cup of water
4. Metallic permanent marker

Begin by painting your eggs with acrylic paint and paint brush. Use cup of water to thin the paint and get a soft watercolor effect. For brighter eggs, skip the water and paint 2-3 coats to get the egg completely opaque.

Search the Internet for Aztec print inspiration or use our Google search here

Begin re-creating the triangles, dots and symbols onto the eggs using your metallic permanent marker. We used gold but silver or black would also look great! Remember, there is no right or wrong, so experiment with all types of colors, shapes and patterns. Tweet us a photo @giftingexperts if you try these eggs!

Fashion Fridays: Look Your Best with Cassani Fogless Shower Mirror

cassani fogless shower mirror review Fashion Fridays: Look Your Best with Cassani Fogless Shower MirrorFinding good quality fogless shower mirrors for shaving that don’t break the bank usually involves trying several mirrors from various stores only to get them home and find out they look like a fun house circus mirror. It’s hard to look your best when your face is distorted and fogless means look quick before the shower heats up!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

We were recently sent a Cassani Fogless Shower Mirror and were excited to see if it lived up to the hype. The mirror is available on Amazon.com for $14.99 with free shipping through Amazon Prime. It has tons of raving reviews and even offers a 100% money back guarantee.

The mirror comes in an easy to open box (see left) and also includes a stainless steel hook for hanging and a bonus hook to hold your razor. Each hook has a self adhesive backing, which is a huge bonus for those of us who hate dealing with suction cups losing their grip. Just be sure to take the extra couple of seconds to place the mirror correctly for height since the self-adhesive strips do not move once placed.

The mirror itself does not bend, which plagues many shower mirrors in it’s price range. It also doesn’t have a tacky metal or plastic frame which the Cassani proves you don’t need to be sturdy and sophisticated. The mirror is also super thin (see third pic on left) so it hugs the shower wall which is great for clumsy people (you know who you are!) and also for aesthetic purposes. The bonus razor hook is separate from the mirror itself so you can place the mount underneath the mirror (shown in pic at left) or anywhere you want as it has its own adhesive back.

So far Cassani Fogless shower mirrors for shaving are living up to their name. The adhesive is working beautifully, the mirror doesn’t fog and the oval shape is wide enough to get the job done. This is a great gift to update your bathroom, guest bathroom or upcoming Father’s Day!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
