My DIY Necklaces Shelf For Under $12

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.

Starting a Bullet Journal – July Spread

I finally joined the bullet journal cult! I’ve been trying to start it for months now, but never got into it. I kept getting self conscious about my handwriting and drawings whenever I looked up inspiration.

But I finally realized that this is for me and not for anyone else. It’s supposed to help me keep myself organized and on track with my plans.

So, this was my first time doing a full spread bullet journal entry. There are still lots to learn and edit for next month. But here’s what I have so far!

What Are You Reading?

I’ve been mentioning to my boyfriend, Andrew, for a while about how I’ve been meaning to get back into reading, but for some reason couldn’t. And little lucky old me got a Kindle for Valentine’s Day from thoughtful him. Now I need some help! What are you reading?

How I Make Extra Money While Driving To Work

As a commuter, I spend a lot of time behind the wheel just to get to work. I live about 38 miles away from work, so every day I’m driving at least 76 miles. That’s assuming I don’t have any errands to run afterwards or I’m meeting friends for dinner. My boyfriend lives about 47 miles away, so on weekends I’m driving minimum 94 miles. Luckily, I found an app that lets me make extra money while driving!

Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post. I made sure this app was legitimate before I made this post. This definitely works, I promise.

6 Netflix Shows I Can Always Bingewatch

I’m sure I’m not the only one to say this, but I don’t know where my life would be now without Netflix! I’m always watching something if I have free personal time. My close friends and coworkers all know that I quote TV shows. If you don’t have Netflix, you don’t get my jokes and references. That’s just how it is in my life! 🙂

I think it’s safe to say that I’m addicted. I’ve recently looked at my Netflix history and I realized that I bingewatch and cycle through the same 6 shows. (With a few new shows or movies that I watch in between cycles. A Series of Unfortunate Events, anyone?)

I’m from the US, so I only have access to Netflix shows allowed in the States. I apologize beforehand if you don’t have access to these shows.

Goodbye 2016

It’s my second new year with Tiny Taurus and I’m so glad I started this series last year! I can actually reread what I reflected on last year when I wrote Goodbye 2015. Now that another year has past, it’s time for me to sit down, reflect, and say Goodbye 2016.

A Chatty GRWM – Everyday Makeup (Monolids)

I finally had a day to myself so I decided to make my second youtube video. My first video was 8 months ago, so it’s been a long time. I made a GRWM (Get Ready With Me) video featuring my everyday makeup using the Stila and BECCA eyeshadow palettes.

My voice is pretty annoying and I end up mumbling a lot, but it’s something I will have to keep in mind for my next videos (if I ever do another one, ha!)

Sunday Ramblings — I’m Still Alive, Y’all!

sundays

Anyone out there? I’m back after a two month hiatus! Work has literally drained my schedule to the point where I didn’t even have time to fit in a single workout. But I finally got time to myself on this GORGEOUS Sunday, so I decided it’s time to give Tiny Taurus a little loving and start with my ramblings!

I just made myself a yummy hazelnut iced coffee, turned on some Netflix in the background, opened my windows to let the fall air breeze in, and now I’m finally sitting down to write my first post in a really long time.
