REVIEW: Cutey Bracelets

Cutey, jewelry making company from the UK, contacted me a few months back to ask if I wanted to try out some of their charm bracelets. And of course I said yes because I live for all things pretty in this world! :)

Cutey's Shamballa Bracelet (left) and Philotes Charm Bracelet (right).

The quality of these pieces are amazing. And the design is also something that got my attention. The structure of these bracelets (especially Philotes) is something that is unfamiliar to me. Learn more about these arm candies after the jump!

Tips & Tricks: Stretch Bracelet Tutorial

This was a tutorial I made over a year ago...but I didn't have the chance to post it on this blog. Anyhoo, here it is! One of the first few DIY projects I will be making and sharing to all of you! Enjoy and don't hesitate to ask questions or drop thoughts on the comment section below. :D

Stretch bracelets are very versatile and easy to wear and perhaps the easiest to make. But over time, the stretch cord will break or loosen because doing a random knot to secure the piece will just not do it. Learn how to properly tie an elastic or nylon to make your stretch bracelets last longer!

For this project, gather the following materials: Stretch Cord/Elastic/Nylon, Scissors, Colorful Beads, Bails, Charms and Jumprings.

Huge Charm and Bead Destash!

Goodbye my loves! This is extremely hard for me, but I know I'm making the right choice. I mean if I wouldn't let all these materials go I'd be suffering the whole trip to Cebu!

Ah, yes. The inevitable has arrived. I'll be taking the CE Licensure Exam come November and this June, I'll be travelling to Cebu to attend a review to prepare for it. :D This is crazy! I'm nervous already. But anyhoo, I know I couldn't possibly take all my babies with me. So here it is, AN UBER HUGE DESTASH of my beloved charms, beads, cameos, settings and what not!

More photos and close up shots after the Jump!

Sneak Peek: Personal Journal

What do we have here? :D Too funky for you? Ahahaha. Let's take another break from jewelry!

Well, this was a graduation gift from my sister. Everyone in the family knows I love to write and doodle. Mostly doodle. When I decided to go back to journaling a few weeks back I thought of buying one but because I saw this lying in a lonely corner, I decided to use this instead.

SHOP TO LOVE: Alunsina Handbound Books

I have come back to journaling a couple of weeks back and I haven't stopped writing since. :) It's really therapeutic and although I have only written a few entries, it's fun reading them once in a while! Unlike before, I have added pictures in my journal too. :D

But I have always wanted to own the perfect journal. And while I was just surfing the net, I found Alunsina Handbound Books! They offer these GORGEOUS LEATHER JOURNALS. OHMIGOSH. These are the exact same journals that have been haunting me in my dreams! :)
