Photos have been a major love of mine from the very beginning. As a kid I remember my mother an aunt dressing me up in clothes and having me pose while they napped away. In my teens and early 20’s I was the designated camera-man for all my friends, toting around my dinky little digital camera and snapping as many candid party shots as I could. Now, as a full-time blogger I take photos every waking second, literally. Photography has been a huge part of my life and it’s a passion I will always nurture.

A few weeks ago, the first weekend of Coachella to be exact. I had the pleasure of attending the POPSUGAR Cabana Party with Walgreens Photo. It was incredible to escape to the desert for a day and enjoy some coconuts under the blazing Palm Desert sun. Naturally, I took my bestie Jenna, and when the two of us are together the photos just keep rolling. She knows all my angles and we really enjoy the whole process of getting a great shot, editing and of course sharing on Instagram! What I miss the most is tangible photos and flipping through an actual album…remember those days?!

So, I decided to take my favorite photos from the POPSUGAR Cabana event and create a DIY project! I went to my local Walgreens and printed a ton of 4×4 square images! I used code COACHPICS to get 40% off my prints (valid 4/15 – 5/31)! I then cut some thick thread in two pieces and pinned them to my wall with push pins. I bough some wooden clothing line clips and clipped my photos to the line! A simple, easy DIY project that is tangible and puts a smile on my face! Be sure to use the code COACHPICS to get 40% off your prints and share those images on social with hashtag #sharelifeshappy!
