Etsy loves.....

At the beginning of August I bought some stuff to make bracelets similar to these I found on Esty, but of coarse I have yet to make  mine...so instead I found someone who does, and might give me some inspiration to finally make mine.

I stumbled across this fun jewelry designer, last night. They are based out of Los Angles, and make some really young yet sophisticated pieces, that are just screaming to be stacked on for an Arm Party.

Hope this inspires you to either make some bracelets or go out, and buy some funky ones.


Sarah Jessica Parker...my style icon

I have always loved Sarah Jessica Parker! She is someone I always look to for fashion inspiration. She is FANTASTIC, her style is, in my option, something lust worthy. Which is why, I am super excited, to see her on screen again in "I Don't Know How She Does It", coming out September 16th.  

Here are some of the lovely dresses she wore to the premier.


Here are some other amazing dresses, she has worn to other events. Seriously, don't you just want to live in her closet! I know I do!! 

She always looks so fantastic! Her hair, her make up, and jewelry, are always to die for. So pulled together and effortless, yet gorgeous. 


RASPBERRIES....are so good..

Everyday Food, May 2011
  • Prep Time 20 minutes
  • Total Time 40 minutes plus chilling
  • Yield Serves 12


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 7 graham crackers
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons powdered gelatin (from one 1/4-ounce packet)
  • 5 cups fresh raspberries (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups cold heavy cream


  1. Lightly coat a 9-inch square metal baking pan with cooking spray and line with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on all sides. Arrange graham crackers in an even layer in pan, breaking them to fit as necessary. Place lemon juice in a small bowl and sprinkle with gelatin. Let sit until gelatin softens, 3 minutes. In a blender, puree 2 cups raspberries until smooth, scraping down bowl as needed. Pour through a fine-mesh sieve into a measuring cup, pressing on solids (you should have about 1 cup of puree); discard solids.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine raspberry puree and 1/2 cup sugar over medium. Cook until bubbles form at edge. Add gelatin mixture and cook, stirring constantly, just until gelatin dissolves, about 1 minute. Transfer mixture to a small bowl and let cool to room temperature, 20 minutes. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat cream and 2 tablespoons sugar on medium-high until firm peaks form, about 4 minutes. With a rubber spatula, gently fold in raspberry puree mixture until combined. Pour over graham crackers. Smooth top with an offset spatula and arrange 3 cups raspberries on top. Refrigerate until set, about 2 hours (or up to overnight).
  3. Using parchment, gently lift pie out of pan and place on a serving plate. Peel away parchment from sides of pie; trim excess paper with scissors or a sharp knife. Cut into 12 pieces to serve

 I hope you enjoy this delicious dessert!! let me know if you like it, I would love to hear what you think.


    LONGER the Better....

    HELLO old Friend..I feel like its been ages since i've been on here..I do apologize, school started back up a few weeks ago, and it's been crazy, fun, exciting, and exhausting all at the same time. But I've loved every second!! 

    ANYWAYS...I am LOVING these longer, mid calf-skirts, especially one's that have a pattern, a crazy print, or look like an old lady would wear them...which is weird for me, because I'm normally a plain jane kind of girl, lately though i've been drawn to patterns and prints, maybe I am giving in to the pressures of expanding my wardrobe to colors other then black and white, but even looking at the skirts below, I choose ones in a certain palette...more boring colors as my mom would put it, then look at me colors. 
    Baby steps mom, baby steps.

    dolce & gabbana....stars..

    Now, I am not normally a fan of any pattern involving stars. Except to see them in the sky. BUT Dolce & Gabbana, did an EXCELLENT job at making "Stars" couture, extremely fashionable, and most importantly wanting to wear them, RIGHT NOW!

    DIY necklace...Box Braid

    The past couple of days have been CRAZY...with teacher meetings, organizing my classroom, and all that jazz. So, even though I should be doing something productive for work, I've been spending the last two evenings making this necklace.
    Now I must confess, it took me watching 3 youtube videos on 'how to make a square knot' and my husband helping me to FINALLY figure out, how in the heck to do this square knot!!! It was however, a pretty simple necklace to make after I figured out how to do that stupid knot!

    Supplies- 12 yards of Faux Suede cording
                       - assortment of washers, I picked mine up at Ace Hardware

    Now I got this idea to make this necklace from this AWESOME
    website Honestly...WTF they show, a step by step process on how to make the coolest things.

    Here's a picture of their necklaces and the link to this particular necklace, they call it "Box Braid Necklace"  


    I really like how they made two and layered them. So, I got a Coral Faux Sued to create another necklace, which I will be wearing them together.
