My D.I.Y. Bracelets :)

Hi Guys!

So I wanted to share these bracelets I made! if you guys are frequent watchers of a certain Youtuber named MissGlamourazzi, you'd know that she made a video about this. Honestly, i used to know how to do this a while ago. This was huge back in the Philippines. When i saw Ingrid's video, its sparked that joy again and here are the bracelets that i made :)


This one is just a simple braid. If you guys know how to braid hair, then its super simple to just do this :) i just used a smaller suede cording

This one is much more complicated. This knot is called a square knot. just google "square knot bracelet" and you'll be good to go. I used a purple suede cording as a base (or an anchor, whatever you guys wanna call it lol) and i used blue hemp twine for the knots.

This bracelet is the same knot as the last one. The only thing i did differently with it is that i did it in a different color and i placed a toggle on it. I personally didnt buy these toggles, i had some bracelets that had toggles (That i know i wasnt gonna wear anymore) and i took of the closures. Great way to recycle some jewelry right?

This bracelet is essentially the square knot bracelet but i just used beads. I took apart some beads from an old bracelet (again, something that i felt was out of season) and i put them within the bracelet. i just put some knots in between the beads so it doesnt seem too clunky in one area

Anyway, please let me know what you guys think of these bracelets :)

If youre curious on where I bought these materials, they're all from Amazon. I feel like theyre much cheaper :)

Till later!

OOTD: Swing High Low ;)


Hi guys!

I wanted to share a quick OOTD. I was so happy to have a high low skirt that I wore it the day right after I got it. It's from JCPenny surprisingly. I got it for $8! Granted, there is shipping costs but it is still so much more cheaper than anything from forever 21 or H&M. I wanted to wear it kind of high waisted and I really do like it. I felt like it was a little too weird so I put a small belt on to really tie everything together :)
I also put a slightly loose shirt, not too loose since the skirt itself is loose. I also chose one with print because the skirt is just one color and i wanted to balance it out a little. The skirt is a little bright but the shirt helped bring it down a little :)

Anyway, please let me know what you guys think about this outfit in the comments below :) btw, I post all my outfits on my instagram. It would be awesome if you guys followed me :)

Till later!

NOTD: Summer Fun! :)

Hey Guys!

So I wanted to share this NOTD with you guys because im seriously loving both the color combination and the small design of it. Granted it isnt the best and most intricate design, i still think that it stand out enough for people to take notice.


As you can see, all i did was a copper, kind of darker rose gold polish as a tip and a moon at the bottom of the nail with a nice slightly neon coral base. As a base color (the coral), I used a Jessie's Girl nail polish in JulieG and the accent polish (the bronzey rose gold) is China Glaze's Harvest Moon. I wouldnt really have a tutorial for it because i think its pretty simple. I let the base cool down completely, i even used a quick dry nail polish to speed up the process.

Im calling this manicure "summer fun" because i think this combo just SCREAMS summer. Since rose gold has been such a big trend this year, this kind of bronzey color is a great substitute. The coral also brings out the "rose gold" in the polish.


So let me know what you guys think of this NOTD down in the comments below :)

till later!
