You know when you see something in the stores and you’re like, how in the world can they charge that price for that item? Sometimes it’s really high quality materials. OK. Sometimes it’s handmade and part of the proceeds go to help children go to school in a war torn country. OK. This time, I’m not buying it.
Have you been holding out on chokers like I have? My obsession with the 90’s started with the music and ended at the TV shows. I never thought I would find myself donning flannel and chokers again… until 2016 hit. Fashion trends are so cyclical, and though it sometimes takes me a little while to think, “OK, it does look cool again.”, I usually embrace them in the end.
When it comes to jewelry, I can be pretty picky. I’m not into huge statement pieces or the teeny tiny delicate ones. I like a little color and a little bit of sparkle, and it has to be comfortable to wear (you will never find me wearing stacked rings). Oh, and I’m working with that beer budget, y’all. In order to get something I loved at a great price, I went out and made my own!

Though I’ve stocked my house with cozy pillows and shareable sized blankets, sometimes we all need to leave the couch to stock up on more hot cocoa and tea and for some reason wearing a comforter as a coat isn’t acceptable. The solution: blanket scarves. Continue reading “Flannel Blanket Scarf DIY”→
I can’t get over it. It’s taken over my life – from kitchens to, now, necklaces! No matter how much carrera marble you throw at me, I find that I will love it even more than I had before.
Elegant, bright, and beautifully natural, this stone has taken over the design markets. But not without a cost. So when I spotted this marble necklace tutorial from A Beautiful Mess I was thrilled to find it was made from cheap clay! Buy some clay, swirl it together, and throw it on a chain; you’ll look like a million bucks. My kind of Fri-DIY. Have a great weekend sporting this chic accessory!
