Come behind the scenes at The BBQ Buddha for a #KitchenTour and see Chris's kitchen in Louisville.
The layout and the flow of my kitchen is the best. With a 12' counter it makes prep and plating a snap. The straight line to my outdoor kitchen is fantastic as I am able to move in and out with ease.
Recreate the jazz age style of Zelda Fitzgerald in #DIYTheLook with Julie from Knitted Bliss.
Zelda Fitzgerald is the quintessential jazz age icon. Flapper and party girl extraordinaire, the wife of one of the most popular novelists of the day (F. Scott Fitzgerald, of course!), Zelda was everything about the Great Gatsby era. Charming, beautiful, and always up for celebrations, the mystique of the flapper era never ceases to fascinate me. It exudes a fun, feminine, and yet powerful style for women who were hellbent on defining themselves and doing whatever they damn well pleased. here's to the jazz age, and the most fascinating flapper of them all.
Recreate the look of Maleficent's castle in #DIYTheRoom with Kinhime Dragon.
While most people see Maleficent as the villain, like when the original animated "Sleeping Beauty" came out long ago, but now we learn from Maleficent that monsters are not born, they are made. I see the Queen of Fairies with a room in Aurora's castle, however her room is not like the other rooms in the castle because it's got a dark fantasy or gothic feel to it, with furniture depicting the darker side of fairy tales, such as Ravens, crows and maybe even some beautiful poisonous flowers. True it's dark but it's gives off a mysterious aura that people love.
Host the perfect gender reveal party for a baby in #DIYTheParty with Aburklen1221.
The reason I chose a gender reveal party is because not only do you see them happening all the time And they are so neat to look through, but i have alot of friend and family that are having or have had a reveal party. weigh that being said should I have another child it would-be neat to have one done. The food section was the best for me especially since I have a lot of food allergies, most of these snacks can be tweet and made allergen-free. As for the decorations a lot of them can be set to gender colors so that way the reveal would-be able to remain unknown. I had A-blast putting this together and looking up all of the different pieces!

One of the best things about living in Denver, the Mile High City, is the spectacular views of the mountains. Denver serves as a gateway to the Rocky Mountains, which attracts people from all over the world. If you are an outdoorsy type of person, Denver will fulfill all your needs for hiking, dog parks, dirt biking, outdoor yoga, gardening, etc. You are just a short drive away from the mountains where you can enjoy skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and the hot springs in the winter and hiking, rock climbing, white water rafting, and geocaching in the summer. Denver, Colorado is filled with endless adventures and 300 days of sunshine. If you come to visit, you will not be disappointed.
