Creative Way to Give A Gift Card

Hello!

I wanted to share with you a simple DIY idea of how to give a gift card. 

You will need: mason jar, ribbon, candy and a gift card, of course.

Just stuff the jar with the candy, put the card in and wrap the ribbon around the mason jar.
Happy Holidays!

Fall and Spring Scarves

Hello!

I thought it would be a good idea to remind everyone about fall and spring scarves.

I personally love them. Scarves easily spice up your outfit and warm you up at the same time.


These are the scarves I own. I choose neutral ones for the fall and brighter - spring, but you can always break the "rules".

Share with me some of the scarves you own for these seasons!

1 Jewelry Piece I Always Wear

Hello!

Today I wanted to share with you 1 jewelry piece I always wear. This ring was a gift from my parents a long time ago. I remember really wanting a simple silver ring. When I finally got it, I would randomly put it on. However, a few years ago I started wearing it daily. Now never take it off. The ring has a lot of scratches and is not round anymore but it is very symbolic to me.


What's 1 jewelry piece you always wear?

Let me know!

Movies of May

Hello!

These are the movies I watched during the month of May:

Delivery Man - pretty good movie, displayed emotion and humor.

August: Osage County - full of drama and unexpected turns and twists, good movie.

Walk of Shame - banal but pretty funny, easygoing.

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom - did not leave a very good impression, too of a fast-paced film.

Fast and Furious 6 - decent action movie, nothing too special though.

What To Expect When You Are Expecting - pretty good comedy, I liked the idea of it and how it was presented.

Safe - good action movie, was not a fan of certain acting.

About Time - film with a great message, recommend watching.

Homemade All-Purpose Cleaner

Hello!

I wanted to share with you this all-purpose cleaner I made. I did not like most of the toxic cleaners I purchased before. It is not only cheaper to make your own cleaning product but also much more healthier. 

All you need is 1 cup of water and 1/4 cup of white vinegar.

Mix it all together and here you have it!

Graduation Dresses*

Hello!

Since it's the time of graduations, I wanted to share with you some dresses I found. I will be focusing on the college graduation dresses.

I know some of you might have had your commencement by now, but here are some ideas for those who have it coming.

These are 10 of my picks for graduation dresses:

What Shoes Would You Choose?*

Hello!

I wanted to share with you this website called DresSale.com!

This time I would like to explore their shoe selection. They have some great options including pumps & heels, sandals, platforms, wedges, flats, boots and sneakers.

Here I will show you some of my favorites.

Pumps & Heels

These are amazing. Definitely an eye catcher. What I love the most about these heels is the color. What is more, pointy toe seems to be perfect for it. The heel is delicate and would look very feminine. The perfect mix of classical and modern. Click here to explore more.

Sandals

I love these shoes. They are extremely dressy and definitely play as the main accent of the outfit. Shimmering straps give that fancy look and golden platform do not overwhelm the shoe. The zipper in the back adds that extra kick. The color is amazing. Click here to explore more.

Platforms

I adore these nude platforms. I like how chunky the front is and the heel is not too skinny. They look perfectly balanced. The heel is average and would not be too hard to walk in. The color would help to elongate the legs. Simply elegant. Click here to explore more.

Wedges

Finally some color! I really like these wedges. They look extremely comfortable since the platform is pretty thick. The straps are not too complicated and simplistic. I love the little slit in the platform. The color is beautiful - one of my favorites. Click here to explore more.

Flats

I really liked the simplicity of these shoes. I love how they would cover most of your feet. Perfect for the weather when it's not too cold but not too warm at the same time. Brown strap with the buckle makes these shoes interesting and unique. Click here to explore more.

Boots

These kind of shoes are definitely on my wish list. Most of the rain boots look chunky. However, these are perfect. The stitching and metal detail at the top add the regular boot feel to it. They will look amazing and your feet won't get soaked. I am drooling over these. Click here to explore more.

Sneakers

I don't wear sneakers unless there is a need to, but I really liked these ones. First of all, I love the design on the shoes. I like the red on the platform of the shoes since it balances out the overall look. Mid-cut also works with the design. Click here to explore more.

Let me know which shoes were your favorite!
