Trend Alert: Wrap Bracelets and Watches

Good morning everyone!

Today I will be accessorizing my look with this amazing studded wrap watch!

Bali Stud Wrap Watch

Wrap watches and bracelets are very popular right now, showing up on the wrists of celebrities including, Kate Hudson, Lady Gaga, Halle Berry and more...

Mix and matching colors and textures of wrap bracelets or watches can add a little pop to a plain outfit. Another great thing about this trend; is can carry on through any season. Having a versatile wardrobe and accessory stash is the key to keeping up with the trends, you simply add on to what you already have to fit the current trend! For wrap bracelets and watches, stick with darker colors for Fall and Winter and liven it up for Spring and Summer with pinks, yellows and white! You can add this accent to a day or night time outfit. 

Here are a few other combos I have created for myself:

Triple Wrap Leather Bracelet

Weave Watch
& Studded Wrap Leather Bracelet 
Turquoise Studded Leather Cuff
& Leather Wrap Bracelet

Studded Leather Wrap Bracelet
& Rhinestone Wrap Around Watch

Quick and Chic Look

Hello my lovely followers!

I put together a look this morning from a few items on my website,!

I started with the "Zig Zag Button up Top," which is a lightweight chiffon top that has a slightly longer back, giving it a more unique twist. The buttons are red to give the top a little pop as well. Pair this with skinny jeans for a chic look. You can easily mix this outfit with flats or heels depending on how dressy you want to make it. Accessories include the "Stacy Satchel," a bag that can comes with an additional cross body strap if you want to dress the outfit down a bit for daytime. Tear drop earrings and a leather wrap bracelet tie the whole look together.

The great thing about this look is the ability to dress it up OR down. Need to make a quick transfer from day to night? Put some heels on and remove the cross body strap to dress up the bag. You could also put your hair in a high bun to show off the gorgeous earrings and give the outfit a chic look.

Scrap Book Paper Decor

Hello everyone!

My next project is the easiest and most inexpensive so far! I have been looking for artwork to fill the space on the walls next to my dining room table. But all the pieces I found (and loved) were at least $50 or more. So I decided to create something on my own, and set the budget for $40 total!

All you need:

1) 12" x 12" scrap book paper sheets: (ONLY 97 cents at Michaels)

2) Whatever size frames you need to fill your desired space. I wanted to put a small one in my bathroom so I got one matted 5" x 7" frame for that. For the spaces in my dining room, I got two
18" x 18" frames, matted to 12" x 12" (the exact size of the scrap book paper sheets). The 18" x 18" frames were at Michaels for $16 each.

Simply frame your scrap book pieces and you're done! 

This idea gives you a unique decor piece at an extremely affordable price. I had a get together at my house the other night and one of my friends asked me, "how much did you pay for those?" Thinking I was going to say I paid something absurd, I happily responded to him, "I made both of them on a $40 budget!"
