Wire Rings!


Jewelry

Wire Rings!
So it turns out that making a wire ring is super simple... even I (who is scared very easily by instructions with more than 5 steps) can make them! These are SUUUPER cute gifts to make in a flash... yay! They're cheap too, all you need is a bit of wire and some needle-nose pliers.
You can also use a few beads to pizzazz-up your ring!



Okay! Here we go!

  1. Gather supplies: Wire (I used 14 gauge) and needle-nose pliers (opt. beads)
  2. Fold the wire in half (when I say in half I don't mean down the middle... just into to sections. It's actually better if the fold ISN'T in the middle.)
  3. Wrap the folded wire once around the finger of your choice
  4. Use the pliers to style the remaining amount of wire however you please!

Pardon My Virtual Dust...

Hi again! Today is the first day of trying to figure out how this blog works. I can't seem to create categories yet, so instead of spending hours on how to make a "Jewelry" and "Beauty" and etcetera button, I am just going to do this for the time being:

To find something quickly, type on of these categories into the search bar to find all the posts under it.

  • Fashion
  • Beauty
  • Jewelry
  • Music
Yup, that's it! Happy reading!

The Skin Regime

Beauty

Lotion Time! (Day 1 of SR)

Today marks the start of the Skin Regime! Creating healthy skin/hair/nails/whatever without having to slather on 50 different chemicals!

Nobody likes dry skin... it's a fact. But with all of the chemicals in today's lotion sometimes I feel like I don't want to put lotion on. Seriously, who wants to put stuff on them that is 99% chemicals??

So today I introduce to you... coconut oil!


I think I may be in love. Based on the picture you can see that I have used a portion of the jar already. To use coconut oil you just scoop part out and rub it on. Coconut oil is non-scented and is solid when at room temperature. To learn more about it click here.
