hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

Yep, you read that right, so get your DVR setup or tune in tomorrow at 9 am EST to Live with Kelly and Michael because I’ll be on during two segments sharing fun DIY pumpkin project ideas for Fall and Thanksgiving decorating and party hosting.


Here’s a little sneak peek at one of the projects I’ll be sharing. I’m excited to show Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan a few DIY pumpkin tricks.

    Your segment on Kelly and Michael was great! Where can I find the recipe for the Pumpkin Punch? Michael really had my thirst going to taste it. Thanks for the unique ideas.

      Hi Janet,

      We’re so glad you loved the segment, thanks for watching! Here is the recipe, it’s in the middle of the post!

      Pumped Up Pumpkin Punch – Michael’s Fav!

      1 bottle Sprite + 1 large can pineapple juice + 1 bottle orange juice + 1/4 c. pumpkin puree

      Mix all ingredients together and pour into your pumpkin. Allow to sit in pumpkin for approx. 1 hour before serving to allow the pumpkin flavor to infuse into the punch! Yum!
