DIY for your accessories & more!

EARRING BLOG DIY

 

I have a fashionable guilty obsession! Accessories!

If it sparkles,dangles or glows around your hair,neck,ears or wrists …I’m in!

I use to and still do store all my fashionable beauties on veleteen boards and earring trays like Tiffany’s. But that can get expensive after awhile when you own as much costume jewelry as I do!

Last month my husband and I visited a new Asian grocery store that sold some incredibly delicious Japanese Mochi in the freezer section. After devouring all these cool and yummy goodies I was going to throw away the tray they came on. I got to thinking…how wasteful is that. And SILLY. The tray was quite sturdy and had spaces that could accommodate earrings,pins and more. So, I rinsed it out and started to fill. I left some space empty so you can see.

They work beautifully. It was just perfect storing for me. And they do not collect dust like the black jewelry trays and boards can do. Today I went and got more Mochi flavors for the long weekend.I look forward to organizing my jewelry in them and more.

What do you think? Pretty cool and eco- friendly idea.

PS

I think it would be great for eye shadow,gloss pots and the like too.

OPI New Image PASSIONHere are some tips to make you feel a little better and to look beautiful. I hope you enjoy them and will use them.

Your skin will go through many changes. Take time for a quick shopping trip to update your beauty regime.Use a skin care regime that is more hydrating.Chemo and other treatments will make your skin drier.

Even if you are not a lipstick,lip gloss or lip balm girl …you will definitely NEED something on your lips to keep them moisturized. Be READY for kissing and look better too.

There is NOTHING like a little color on your face.
Some days you may not feel like it and must simply stay in bed but the times you feel up to it… It can be as simple as 1,2,3.
You don’t have to use foundation. Use a tinted moisturizer.Perk up your eyes with a little eyeshadow or eyeliner.Add some blush to your face. Forehead,cheeks and chin.If you want the feel of mascara…use CLEAR mascara.

TREAT YOURSELF to something like a luscious pink nail polish like OPI’s MOD FOR YOU!

Use an organic/vegan body lotion or hand cream that makes you feel pretty,smells YUMMY and makes you feel good.If you are not into much fragrance at this time use a fragrance free one or even olive oil or coconut oil will do the trick.

Cancer is a sneaky disease and a club I too did not want to join. I did not want to be invited.PLEASE do yourself and your family a favor.Get a skin care exam for a check up all of your body for skin cancer (starting as a teenager)

Get a mammogram if you are of age or your doctor recommended.Preventative maintence makes you prettier and live longer.
