Necklaces are a must have for my outfits. You will never see me without at least one necklace on. Unfortunately, the more I buy, the more I misplace, break, and/or lose. I never had a place to keep and organize my necklaces. I always took them off, threw them on my nightstand, and Nemo (my cat) handled the rest.
I didn’t want to get a necklace stand because some of my necklaces are very long and I wanted them to hang instead of lay on my desk. Not to mention, I had no desk/table space for my stand either. I decided to buy a shelf, some hooks, and make my own simple DIY necklaces shelf.
We know that the instant pictures trend is at it’s peak right now. Everyone loves taking pictures and printing them immediately to share with their friends and family. It’s fun to make tangible memories instead of just uploading pictures to Facebook or Instagram. I was deciding between the Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera or the HP Sprocket instant printer.
This summer has been crazy humid and brutal, so the last thing I want to worry about what’s in my bag when I’m on the run. I usually grab my Kate Spade Tenley Crossbody bag as my go to summer bag because of the guava color. So here are the things I’m always carrying when I go on errands on the weekend.
This week’s Inspiration Tuesday:
I am personally a huge fan of the whole white wall and black/grey, monochromatic room look. I think it looks clean and makes the room look bigger, and any pop of color on a random item in the room is a nice accent. Although, many disagree with my tastes and call it too “sterile” for their tastes, but I think if done right, the room would be brought together nicely. Here are a few examples of rooms that I think have nice features in their monotony.
“It’s not about the shoe; it’s about the story behind it, and what this product stands for. In a sense, it comes from the oceans, and it stands for the oceans.”
adidas has partnered up with Parley for the Oceans, an organization that is bringing awareness to the terrible state of our oceans, to design first of (hopefully) many footwear lines using confiscated fishnets from illegal poachers. Through this collaboration, adidas has been able to release a concept prototype upper shoe made of entirely fishnet and yarn recycled from ocean waste that was collected during a 110-day expedition tracking illegal poachers.
I am extremely, extremely excited and grateful that a huge global company is using their power and name to take steps towards bringing awareness to ocean pollution through product sustainability. By adidas announcing that they can make an entire shoe line and potential garments out of reclaimed waste from the ocean, you can imagine how much crap was and still is actually out there. Keep an eye out for these shoes in 2016!
