DIY Sweaters, For Mugs!

Its the typical North Indian winter. It’s cold. It’s lazy. And tis’ the season when you crave delicious hot beverages. So trying out my beloved Gayatri’s hot chocolate recipe, as a cure to my dull mood on a cold Thursday afternoon, seemed absolutely perfect. Let’s take a minute to appreciate what an amazing recipe it is and how any of you who haven’t yet tried it are missing out on a cup filled with goodness and chocolate and warm hot winter love! Those of you who are yet to try it, here is the link. http://twogirlsandcoffee.com/winter-hot-chocolate/   image   Anyhow, I had a small issue. And much heard in the typical Indian household too, “Chai thandi ho gayi!”. (For our non-hindi reader “The tea has gone cold!”). Disaster. No less. Either calls for reheating of the beverage, a task so unnecessary. Or gulping down your drink before it turns tepid. Or making another cup full that takes a whole lot of work. But there is a cure. And a rather cute one! A warmer or sweater for you mugs. Here’s a very very simple DIY to keep those mugs and cups warm this winter season! ❤️    image   DIY MUG SWEATER: *Christmas Season Special*  🌟🎄🎅🏼🎁🎉 1) Go buy yourself a pair of cheap but cute looking socks, winter prints, woolen, and bright and colorful ones works so well. 2) Now take your mug and fit into the top part of your new woolen sock, where the rim is snug, and nicely measure the length till the bottom rim of the mug. 2) Get a pair of scissors and cut the sock where it touches the bottom part of your mug. Make an inch long slit in the middle for the mug handle. 4) Now pour your hot beverage, and your DIY Sweater for your mug is ready. xoxo Tag us in pictures if you do try this little fun winter DIY activity. 🤓 @twogirlsandcoffee on instagram Or hashtag #twogirlsandcoffee #artistrybysahej   😊

Cheeky Cocktails!

“Cocktails, please..?!”

I think I can go out on a limb here and say that the art of concocting a cocktail is one of extreme finesse, technique and accuracy. Or as you all know, a favourite word of mine, an artistry.

Why then, do we take cocktails for granted. It’s a lot like baking, once the measurement is out of the window, the key essence of the cocktail is lost, leaving you with just a mix of tinctures, yet the paradox of this rather technical art, lies in its scope to mix and match, alter and create potions, hybrids and combinations as per your taste, mood and interest!

DIY: For The Love of Mason Jars

Namaste! To all all my fellow creativity conspirators.

I was sitting and thinking how badly I’m crushing on Mason Jars! And I thought, since I’ve personally used them for a ton of things, why not share a Do-It-Yourself post about these handy babies. I’ve always loved them, but this week they’ve just been glaring at me. I think it’s because Summer is here, the days are long and my creativity has been a running wild. I find summer so beautiful, colorful and happy, making my brain turn towards Summer décor.
