beanie baby costume

We cannot believe that Halloween is practically here! We have faith that you’ve been working on your costume for a couple weeks by now, and prepping all your Halloween treats and cocktails, but what about your beloved pet’s costume? If you are crunched for time, we have the perfect solution that will take you under 10 minutes: a Beanie Baby tag.

As a kid of the 2000s, I am no stranger to the Beanie Baby. Shout out to all of you who tried to collect every single one which was only possible because your parents thought it would turn into a collectors’ item (still waiting…) Also, let’s not forget when McDonald’s sold mini Beanie Babies in their Happy Meals. Hey, McDonald’s — can we get all day breakfast and Beanie Baby toys?

You just need some red and white felt for this tutorial, as well as your trust glue gun and some ribbon. Now tell me this isn't the cutest thing you've ever seen.

Materials + Tools:

  • TY print out
  • White felt
  • Red felt
  • Ribbon
  • Hot glue gun
  • Fabric scissors

Instructions:

  1. Print out the TY logo on computer paper.
  2. Tape the logo to a piece of red felt and cut out the heart shape.
  3. Place the paper logo on white felt and cut out the letters “TY”.
  4. Hot glue the letters to the heart and attach ribbon to the back.

Place the paper printout on top of the red felt and cut out the heart shape.

Repeat the same process by putting the paper print out on top of the white felt and cutting out the letters T and Y.

Hot glue the letters in place to mimic the TY logo.

Attach ribbon on the back of the heart using hot glue.

Turkey is by far the cutest Beanie Baby around :) Can you imagine getting this Beanie Baby in your Happy Meal? Score!

Whether you're celebrating with your significant other for the first time or the tenth, you've probably already given some thought to your Valentine's Day dinner ideas. You'll be hungry by the time the sun sets, whether you've spent the whole day together, or you've just come back from an evening date. These recipes are perfect for ending the night on a delicious note or they can serve as your date night — cooking together is a super fun way to spend your time.

You can show your favorite valentine love with a DIY gift, pink cocktails or a V-Day fruit salad, or you can whip up a fancy-schmancy (and romantic) dinner. You can try the same recipe until it's just right, or experiment with a different pick every night of February. No matter what your favorite cuisine is, there's something for everyone. Here are our favorite ideas for a date night meal to remember.

​What is a good Valentine's Day dinner?

A good Valentine's Day dinner is anything that is delicious and romantic, and that will change for every couple (or if you're alone!). V Day is always a good excuse to cook up a steak if you and your partner eat meat, but pasta or seafood are also great ideas. Or go for a surf and turf dinner that incorporates all of them. You can also add aphrodisiacs into the menu, but whatever you pick, don't forget dessert!

What is the Valentine's Day menu?

Your Valentine's Day menu is totally up to you and your partners' tastes. You can check out what's local to your area if you want to have a menu that reflects this time of year in your state. In terms of courses, you can opt for dinner and dessert or go all out with an appetizer, entrée, drinks, and dessert.

What to make for a romantic dinner at home?

Here are some popular Valentine's Day foods you can consider making:

  • Steak
  • Seafood
  • Chocolate
  • Pasta
  • Sushi

  • Fish

When I was working barista shifts at Starbucks over the winter, we'd get Medicine Ball orders every single hour. And not going to lie, I really hated them. Let me get this straight — I didn't hate the drink, but I more so disliked the fact that the customers ordering them almost always demanded their tea between a swarm of thick coughs and countless small sniffles. Yuck.

It truly felt like I was on the fence of getting sick pretty much every time someone stepped up to the register. But, I remained strong and I did what I had to do as a service worker, which in this case, was to pour the peachy-citrus tea into a pool of honey syrup, then top it with steamed lemonade. Coughs and sniffles aside, I often questioned why someone would order the Medicine Ball, based on the cost of the drink alone (up to $6, and that gets expensive when you're ordering it all the time).

Popular during sick season, the Starbucks Medicine Ball (AKA the Honey Citrus Mint Tea) may be good, but it's not good enough to cure you of that semi-flu, or whatever other pathogens might have been floating around in my café. It's also not worth putting someone else's health in jeopardy. Turns out, you can make the Medicine Ball at home — which saves money and effort in the long run. Stay tuned to find out how simple making the drink is, and how we learned to make it ourselves.

@k.ard Medicine Ball for only $1.69 each! #medicineball#fluseason#coldseason#starbucksdupe#budgettok#SephoraConcealers#DrPepperTuitionContest#halloween#fall2022♬ Halloween - KenZie DarkStar

TikTok always makes recipes look effortless. So, we took this trusty tutorial into our own hands, to compare how good an at-home Medicine Ball could really be against the real one.

Ingredients for a Starbucks Medicine Ball Drink

How can I make a Medicine Ball at home?

Making a Medicine Ball at home is pretty straightforward:
  1. Heat 1 cup of lemonade in the microwave for 45 seconds to a minute.
  2. Add 1 cup of hot water and stir in 1 tablespoon honey.
  3. Add one bag of Peach Tranquility and one bag of Jade Citrus Mint, then steep for a few minutes.
  4. Enjoy your Medicine Ball!

How I Made The Starbucks Medicine Ball At Home

First, I embarked on an ever-iconic Target run to gather my copycat Starbucks Medicine Ball recipe ingredients. Since they were out of the exact Teavana teas I needed to replicate the TikTok recipe, I picked up two similar ones: first, the Good & Gather Organic Peach Honey Tea, and the Good & Gather Organic Mint Tea. I also picked up a jug of lemonade, and planned to use the honey I already had at home. All together, the three ingredients I needed ended up costing me about $9.50.

Step 1: Heat Lemonade

I measured a cup of lemonade, and just popped my Starbucks mug in the microwave for a minute.

Step 2: Add Water and Honey

While the lemonade was in the microwave, I set some water on in my electric kettle. Once both liquids were heated up, I measured a cup of water and combined it in the mug with a tablespoon of honey. Yum!

Step 3: Steep Tea Bags

Then, I put the two teabags in the mixture to steep. The tea wasn't overly hot either, and I steeped them for about 3 minutes before giving my homemade Medicine Ball recipe a lil' sip.

Is the homemade version of the Medicine Ball as good as the one from Starbucks?

To my surprise, my homemade Medicine Ball recipe was extremely delicious, and it mimicked the Starbucks one so closely. Before tasting, I gave my tea a sniff, and the smell was pretty much identical to the drink made in stores. The flavor hit the exact same mark.

Overall, I rate my homemade Starbucks Medicine Ball a 4.7/5.

The only detracting factors are the temperature of the drink – Starbucks steams their lemonade to make the drink super hot, and mine wasn't nearly as piping. Of course, this is just personal preference, and next time, I can heat the lemonade for a longer duration, or reheat the drink altogether. Another reason for the minimal point deduction is the drink wasn't as sweet as I expected it to be. Again, this is a personal preference, and you can add as little or as much sweetener you desire!

All of this goes to say, that a homemade Starbucks Medicine Ball is just as yummy as the one you can get at a Starbucks cafe. By following the steps above, you can make a copycat recipe that's going to satisfy your hankering for a citrusy, hot tea!

Let’s get real – painting is not for everyone! Maybe the mess is not worth the overall effort from your perspective, or you just can't fathom painting all of those nitty gritty details of a scene for your wall. Canvases, however, are for everyone. Even if you don't see yourself as a true Frida Kahlo, you can still create some awesome wall art using canvases, and they're impressive. Today, we’re decorating our walls with fabric-covered canvases! These are incredibly easy yet they look professional and classy. Read on for how to rock this super easy decor DIY!

What You Need to DIY Canvas Wall Art

  • Various canvases
  • 3 coordinating fabrics
  • Gold chain
  • Fabric scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • A staple gun and some staples

Step-by-Step Instructions for Custom Canvas Art

  1. Arrange your canvases in the order they will hang on the wall.
  2. Determine which fabric to put on each canvas.
  3. Place one canvas on top of your fabric, and cut around the frame, leaving about 1 1/2 to 2 inches of leftover material on each side.
  4. Fold the fabric over one side of the canvas and staple.
  5. Repeat step 4 on the opposite side, making sure the fabric is taught.
  6. Fold and staple the last two sides.
  7. Pull the fabric on the corners up, and fold to the side, creating a diagonal crease along one side.
  8. Staple each corner.
  9. Next, cover all of your canvases.
  10. If you want to include the gold chain, decide how you want the chain to lay on the canvas.
  11. Hot glue one end of the chain and let it dry.
  12. When gluing the other side of the chain, be sure to hold the chain taut while the glue is drying, or it will loosen and sag.

Illustrated Instructions

You’ll need to stop by the fabric store unless you have some material you’ve been hanging onto that you want to put on display. Remember that old t-shirt in your closet you just can’t bear to get rid of? Why not repurpose it as art?

Once you’ve got your supplies, place the frame on the fabric and cut around it leaving at least an inch on each side. This will depend on how thick your canvas is. The fabric should cover the frame just like the canvas does.

Start stapling your fabric! First staple along one side and then do the opposite side. Now staple the remaining two sides. Be sure to pull the fabric taught so that it doesn’t look droopy. That is, unless you’re going for a saggy look. We put anywhere from two to four staples in each side about an inch and a half apart, but you can add as many as you need.

Now for the corners! They look a little bit intimidating, but they’re really no sweat. Take the loose fabric, and pull it up and back towards the center of the frame. One side will fold at a diagonal along the side of the frame. Make sure you smooth out any bumps and then staple it firmly in place.

If you want to add chain or other embellishments to your artwork, you can easily do so with hot glue.

We added gold chain to spice up our solid blue fabric! Snip a chain to your desired length using wire cutters, then glue one side of the chain to the back of the frame. Let it dry before you do the other side, or the chain will drag through the glue. When you glue the other side, pull it tight and hold it until the glue is dry or the chain will sag.

That’s it! This project is so quick and easy. You've added some original pieces to your art collection, and are ready to get to hanging your art. The best thing about this DIY is that you can reuse the frames if you want, to change up the designs featured in your home. Simply remove the staples and make them again with new fabric!
