After visiting a crafts store last week and picking up some materials, I was feeling inspired. So I let my creative juices flow. I know that felt roses are not new but I found an easier way to create them.

These are all the materials you need:
1) Felt 2) Scissors 3) Glue gun 4) Pen or Pencil 5) CD (or round object) 6) Ribbon
Use the CD to trace a circle on the felt material and cut out the shape.
Then begin to cut the shape in a circular motion. As seen below.
Starting from one end roll the material until you get to the end. Leave a bit of the material unrolled so that you have a flap. Put glue on the bottom end of the rolled up material. Press the small flap onto the glue to cover the bottom of the roll. And, there you have your rose.
You can create as many as you want and make a necklace (as I did) or a headband. Whichever you choose will look fab. This is a great gift idea or something simple you can make for yourself to go with your spring wardrobe.
So it seems that Boston will be hit with another snow storm. We didn’t receive much snow until recently but the impact of having it snow so much in a short span of time is brutal. Enough is enough!! With that being said, I’m going to go out tonight and enjoy the evening since it’s likely that I’ll be snowed in this weekend.Argghh!!
Have a lovely weekend everyone!

I simply chose the title for this post because of my hair (shocker). My hair is a big part of me – literally. It was so windy today! I kept trying to fix my tresses but they had a mind of their own…Good windy day clothing staples are a blazer and skinnies but then again when is it not a good idea to wear skinnies and a blazer?!
(Blazer and Boots: H&M, Pants: Wet Seal, Necklace: I made it myself by using a metal chain I purchased from the fabric store and tying short pieces ribbon on both ends of the chain. Now you have yourself a necklace – Voila!)
I’m loving suede in jewel tone colors. The texture is already lavish and when you add lush and juicy hues it elevates the material to another level of fabulousness. I incorporated two shades of suede-like items into my look. The color of this jumper is the reason it ended up on my radar. I haven’t worn this shirt in a while but I thought that it suited my retro vibe quite well. I went for booties instead of knee boots which I initially considered. I wanted to add some length to my appearance. I think the knee boots would’ve made me seem shorter.
I’m a visual person and when I look at something, color is the first thing that jumps out at me. Color moves me. It can inspire and change my mood. Color makes the world vivid and full of wonder. I’m now on a mission to find a saffron shaded suede mini. Wouldn’t that be an amazing garment?

Here’s a quick DIY jewelry job. I was in the fabric store and saw all these cool metal chains. I bought 2 feet of metal (that I’m wearing as a necklace in these photos). I put the chain around my neck and let the ends loose. I took one end of the chain and fed it through one of the loops on the opposite end. I fed enough through so that some of the chain would hang. And voilà! You have your necklace. What’s great about this is that you can adjust it to make the chain tighter or loser. It’s your prerogative!
