DIY Project

A couple of days ago my co-worker and decided to make our own bracelet. Working in the garment district in NYC there are a bunch of different trim stores and bead stores all over. We were looking for some studs and ended up finding the cutest little charms- one idea to the next we bought all the supplies to make our own bracelets. We figured why would we go out and buy something that we can just make our own way? It’s completely original, a fun project, and most importantly the feeling you get after is the best! Making accessories is def. a fun task because it’s super creative and allows you to stretch beyond your imagination. The best part is that it’s super easy! Really! It took me about half an hour to make my bracelet and the time felt like nothing because I was enjoying every moment.

Location for beads — Beads @ 5th. But, I would also recommend Beads World on 39th Street and Broadway.

What’s Your Vision?

On this relaxing Saturday I decided to add some more inspiration to my vision board. I’ve always been a fan of collages because they are so fun and you can personalize them. Vision boards are a collage of things that inspire you, they create a vision. When I create one I look through countless magazines and the first thing that catches my attention I cut out and put to the side. I do this from time to time because inspiration always changes as we are evolving. Different things attract us on different days. But the trick is to not overthink it, whatever it may be that just captivated your attention will work. Because that is exactly what you will feel again when you look at your vision board. When I finally have enough to start my board, I take out the glue stick and start pasting 🙂 For me, it takes time to finally complete my board. I like to go back and add more quotes/pics/colors/whatever it may be! This is my vision board in the works.. and I will post a pic of the final one .. when it’s complete 🙂 But for now, get inspired and start your own! Put on your favorite music, relax, and trust me motivation and inspiration will follow.
