Enjoy the winter time in the city

Buying pieces of jewelry can be pretty expensive, even if it’s just costume jewelry. However, crafting handmade jewelry can mean much more than making nice pieces of jewelry pieces at lower cost; you can also make jewelry that closely matches your personal style and taste. By learning a few basic techniques, you should be able to construct unique styles of jewelry sets, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and more.

Try making Swarovski crystal earrings. These earrings are fairly simple to make, and only require two crystals for your charms, two jump rings, and two earring findings. You will also need a set of pliers to help open and close the jewelry pieces..

1. Buy a jewelry making kit. Jewelry making kits provide you with basic supplies and tools that allow you to customize different jewelry pieces and make them all your own. Most kits come with some basic instructions with different jewelry ideas, but you can use your imagination to create whatever kind of jewelry you want.

  • There are many variations of jewelry making kits depending on what specific kind of jewelry you want to make.
  • For example, there are beading jewelry kits, stringing jewelry kits, and wire jewelry kits, just to name a few.

Common skills and techniques that must be learned include opening jump rings, cutting wire, wire working, stringing, and using jigs and pegs, just to name a few.

Fashion tips for fall

Fall is a versatile season for fashion. The weather starts getting cooler, making heavier-knit fabrics, boots, and chunky accessories in vogue. The occasional mix of warmer weather also makes lighter clothing appropriate, as well. To be fashionable in the fall, stick with an autumn color scheme and wear clothing that seems sensible for whatever the weather is outside.

The most notable thing about fall fashion is the color scheme. Sticking with colors and patterns associated with autumn will lead you down the path of becoming fall fashionable. Consider the seasons natural color scheme. Autumn is most notable for the way the trees change color and shed their leaves. Form your color palette of the natural color palette by opting for colors associated with this process. Think reds, oranges, yellows, browns, and deep burgundy-violets.

Six 90s Fashion & Accessories You Actually Want to Wear

Hey mamas,

Last week, a pr firm sent me a fun package full of nostalgic candy from the 90’s, and Pretty Woman stick-on nails. It brought be back to the late 90’s when my mom let me purchase a pair of Sally Hansen stick-on nails in a light, French manicure print. I was fifteen and feeling fabulous.

Now, I’m thirty three and feeling even more fabulous. One reason could be the ridiculously wild, art-deco inspired stick-on nails I’m wearing! I wonder whatg the kids will think? I wonder what my husband will think?

I’m always looking for beauty short cuts, and it doesn’t get any easier than stick-on nails. Pretty Woman NYC has created really great options, and, as I type away, the sticky tape (I opted not to use the glue) is holding firm.

Each kit comes with 24 artificial nails, so you can find which size works for you. I have very tiny fingers and was still able to find the right fit, without having to file away sides.

90s Fashion Short Shorts

Who wears short shorts? Well, mom can wear short shorts, if the kids aren’t round or the kids are just too young to realize mom is hot enough to wear short shorts. Check out H&M for tons of affordable options under $20! #SexyMama

90s Fashion Denim on Denim

I can’t say I ever loved this look, although photos I recently uncovered prove otherwise – see below. When wearing several denim clothing items, I like to go with different shades. Or, I’m all about a denim bottom and denim cap. This acid wash denim cap is from Bebe -another 90’s relic I used to love. #WhereTheCoolKidsShop

90s Accessories Chokers

Blame it on Bella and Gigi Hadid, thaqt chokers are back. I don’t love the ultra thin, velvet styles from the 90s. I do enjoy a multi-strand option like the one you can create with StyleSting. For luxury buffs, Chanel recently got in a slew of divine choker options. If you’re in NYC, go to Bergdorf Goodman and ask for Ilona. #AllChokedUp

90s Tech Polaroid Camera

Your go-to accessory for upcoming picnic season is going to be a Polaroid. If you kept your old one, great. If not, you can buy one at Target. #TheOriginalInstagram

90s Beauty Press-on Nails

Save time, just press and go with Pretty Woman Designer Nail Kit available in 90’s beloved all-black nails and the nude French mani. #NailedIt

90s Fashion Crop Tops

This is an acquired taste – kind of like some your friends’ spouses . I also think, much like short shorts, this is something I wouldn’t rock at the annual family BBQ. I would do it on a vaca with the hubs. The photographed crochet top was purchased in Cuba, by me, nearly 15 years ago. But you can find similar styles at BooHoo or Forever 21. #BecauseIHitTheGym

How Sexy Can You Go? — Every Day Lingerie Ideal for You

Hey Mamas,

How sexy can you go?

Valentine’s Day is TODAY … no pressure.

No, seriously, no pressure.

Valentine’s Day, in my humble opinion, is a commercialized joke forcing terrible husbands to run into a drug store during their lunch break, to purchase a terrible box of over-priced chocolates.

It’s also a day when terrible wives put on their sexiest lingerie for an annual “play date”.

Guys – you should get your wives flowers and chocolates every day; and, give her the attention she deserves, on the regular.

Mamas – you should wear sexy undergarments on the regular. It’s not just for your man; it’s for your own sexual confidence.

I’m sitting right now in a lacy peach bra from Hanro of Switzerland and my wickedly glamorous Gooseberry Intimates kimono robe (which you’ve likely spotted in my Instagram or Facebook pages). I feel feminine, confident and extremely sexy. #AlwaysBeYourBestYou

Get inspired not intimated, to wear lingerie every day. Simply decide, how sexy can you go?

There’s no right or wrong lingerie, no right or wrong level of sexy. Just own your look, own you sexiness, and don’t save your sexy for one day a year.
