Cricut Room Makeover with J-14 and Jenna Ortega

Heidi Moore • DIY inspiration lifestyle

Cricut Jenna Ortega

OMG, it’s been such an exciting few months and I finally get to share some of the reasons why! I, along with J-14 magazine and the oh-so-awesome team of Cricut, was given the opportunity to totally makeover a room for the adorable teen star, Jenna Ortega! Let me tell you, it was such an incredible experience. From selecting amazing furniture & decor from Hayneedle to traveling to Palm Springs to make it all come to life, it was an opportunity for the books! Not to mention, Jenna has a heart of pure gold, and the best part…I found she was like a mini version of myself – which made this project that much more special. Transforming this up-and-coming teen’s room wasn’t just about the room makeover. It was about giving a teen sister duo a space they felt amazing to be in, all while growing with them throughout their teen years. I wasn’t just designing … Read More

  OMG it’s here again! I LOVE Halloween and each year keeps getting better and better. And since it’s my favorite time of year, what better way to celebrate than to play with hair and makeup for our annual Halloween card? Keeping up with tradition, this year I’ve got the hair and makeup need-to-know for a DIY perfectly spooky Miss Peregrine from Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home of Peculiar Children. I first read the book awhile back (and loved it!) and after seeing the movie, it was a no-brainer. This HAD to be this year’s costume! Simply follow these steps and you’ll be just as glamorously spooky as Miss Peregrine herself!   HAIR Step 1: Prep hair with heat protector. Use a pliable medium hold hair spray for curling. When curling wrap and pin. Allow hair to cool before removing pins. Step 2: Remove hair pins, and start to pick the curl … Read More
