Nailcare Workshop + Tough As Nails Talk with ezza

On Thursday, April 23, 6:00 pm, we’ve invited our good friend and CEO of Ezza, Ale Breuer, to help us figure out how the heck to deal with the 4-week old no chip we’ve been sporting. This workshop + talk will be centered on at home nail care and how people can take care of their nails so they are stronger and healthier. It will also be an open conversation format, focused on popular nail care questions (that you can ask at any time!) with Jeana, aSweatLife’s CEO and founder. Ale will be sharing best practices on how to keep nails healthy and modeling how to use their Toughen Up At-Home Nail Kit!

DIY Wall Hanging

We’ve been in our apartments, homes, condos, etc a LOT recently and so we got to thinking, it is a great time to change up some decor. One great way to do this without breaking the bank? DIY decor!

On Tuesday, April 28, 6:00 pm, we’ve invited our good friend and interior designer, Leigh Hardy from Indigo & Violet to help us create a one-of-a-kind yarn wall hanging. These stunners can be found at Anthropologie, West Elm and more but are an easy DIY craft for all levels. And since #everythingisbetterwithfriends we want you to join! Leigh will walk us through how to create the beautiful wall hangings step-by-step so you’ll have your very own to hang by the end!

Here are the details:

*Amazon shipping and availability has become inconsistent, and Leigh recommends supporting a smaller business in Blick. Check for coupons and free shipping and estimate a minimum of 7 days for cheapest shipping option. Feel free to make substitutions and use what you have! Availability of these items is subject to change.

Choice of base:

Yarn: Recommend a minimum of 3-5 colors. A variety of colors and textures of yarn works best – you can also use strips of fabric or ribbon if you have anything around the house. You can do a general “yarn” search. We use a lot of Lion Brand Yarn – here are two different thicknesses both available in many colors as a starting point. Feel free to reach out with any questions.
