Rambles... {PH}

So I'm obsessed with doing basic lanyard stitches and turning them into jewelry...
Yes I know... I'm 25...
I've made them using gimp and micro suede cord...

I plan to get some bright colors soon because summer is coming and they will look soo awesome stacked...

--------------------------------------------
So Sunday was Easter Sunday/ Resurrection Sunday..
Here is my hair and makeup...totally planned on talking pics of my whole outfit... but by the time I got home I didn't feel like it...

The eyes were just simple gold on the lid and brown and black in the crease...
I think the gold color is actually Urban Decay's Baked...
I used Red Cherry #213 lashes...very natural for church...

And I primed my eyes with Jesse's Girl Eyeshadow Primer (love this stuff...)
and NYX Eyeshadow Base in White... (also love...)








______________________
Super old look that somehow never got posted...



I don't know why I did this...
Meh, cute green look....

-----------------------
My hair...currently... 8inches from the top of my shoulders...
This is the longest my hair has been in my adult life under my care...
I'm so excited... The hair falls right at my Shoulder Blade... (BSB)
So I have about 2 inches to go before I'm BSL... and my short layers are APL...

I'm excited because I've just started on the Real Queen's/Green House Reggie...and it's super easy... 

And I plan to buy some Gro-Aut oil in combination with that...

I'll let you guys know how that goes...

So, twitter is funny.... cause in a way i makes you like people you've never meant cause they're funny and intellectual....

But it also makes you have ppl, you already know... cause you start to really see people for who/what they are...

Hmmph...

DIY Hex Nut Bracelet

So... whilst browsing my blogs I saw that Sugar Rock Cat Walk made and awesome bracelet out of rope and Hex Nuts....





The original (pictured above) is by Giles & Brother...
they have awesome jewelry btw...

She got the idea from Honestly...WTF, an awesome blog for Fashion Frills and D.I.Y's....


So I went over to wal-mart, grabbed some micro suede cord, and some hex nuts and tried my hand...

It is easy to do... even tho it is a little hard to get the full idea of it... at first...

For full instructions-----> Honestly...WTF...

Here's mine... I added a little circle clasp at the end... I'm still deciding if I like it...
and some feather charms for a little flair...







for detail


I hope you guys try this DIY...
I love it...
