4 Gold Knuckle Rings from Etsy

I just bought these over the weekend and I’m so pysched for them to arrive!  I have fat fingers, so I didn’t think Knuckle rings would be flattering~ but I tried some on when I was in SF two weekends ago and well…they actually make my fingers look longer!  Go Figure.

DIY Stone Cuff

How cool is this tutorial?  From P.s.–I made this

   P.S.- I made this...logo


We love collecting treasures from our travels. Whether sifting for sea glass or gathering stones, bringing a piece of nature home means creating long-lasting memories. In our final installment of Pretty Savvy with presented by Jeep, Erica shows you how to take it a step further by pulling them off the shelf and wearing them your self!

To create: Squeeze a dollop of E6000 onto the backside of your agate; press and hold it against the center of the cuff for a few seconds. Wrap gold wire around both the agate and cuff to secure it in place (P.S- this also adds an extra flare to your new arm candy, so don’t be afraid to wrap more than necessary). Snip off the wire end with the scissors on your swiss army knife. If you don’t have agate lying around, use seashells or coral from your summer beach trip or repurpose a vintage brooch!
Stay Crafty,

Weekend Recap and Photodump

This past weekend was  BLAST!!  I went glamping with 2 of my besties and we explored San Francisco a bit on Sunday. =)

Friday I flew out to the San Jose airport and they picked me up along their way to the campsite near Santa Cruz.


When we got to the campsite, it was SOO nice!  It was called Constanoa~ and you had the option of staying in a hotel, fancy cabin, tent-cabin hybrid (which we did), bring your own tent, or bring your own RV.  The campsite was split into different areas and it was REALLY fun to have a weekend away from city life.  There was absolutely no cell phone reception, but luckily there was wifi!  Not quite “roughing-it”… =)

*Important things first…we set up our snack table!




For the first part of Saturday we made breakfast, hiked for a few hours, napped, and relaxed in our tent.




In the evening, we ate at this bomb restaurant (on the camp site) and then tried about 6 times to start a fire.  It took 2 of our neighbors to help us get it going >.<  Next time we’ll know how to start a fire for SURE!  lol




Sunday…was a day of eating.  And that’s about it… lol

HRH is born: The future King of England

Ok…so lately I don’t write about any celebrity news.  But this was too big to ignore…

dun dun dunnNnnn…The new Future King of England is born!

Article below from UsWeekly:

Sound the trumpets: at long last, His Royal Highness is finally here! The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton gave birth to a baby boy — her first child with husband Prince William — at St. Mary’s Hospital in London on Monday, July 22, the Palace confirmed via Twitter. “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 4.24pm. The baby weighs 8lbs 6oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth. The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry & families have been told and are delighted. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well and will remain in hospital overnight.”

UPDATE: The official announcement has been placed on the wood and gold easel behind the gates of Buckingham Palace. The certificate bears the news of the future heir’s birth, as well as a note that reads, “Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.” Prior to the placement of the birth announcement, a royal crier shouted the news for well-wishers outside the hospital.

“May he be long-lived, happy, and glorious, and one day reign over us!” the crier proclaimed of the new Prince. “God save the Queen!”

As for the royal baby’s name? The Duke and Duchess, both 31, “may take some time” before choosing a name, a royal source recently told Us. After all, it took Princess Diana and Prince Charles seven days to name their firstborn William, two weeks for Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York to name their daughter Beatrice, three weeks for William and Kate to name their dog, Lupo, and one month for Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip to name Charles.

Married since April 2011, William and Kate announced they were expecting back in December of last year. Although first-time mom Middleton’s first trimester was marred by acute morning sickness, the common-born Duchess found pregnancy “fascinating,” and was feeling “great” in the final weeks before the baby’s birth.

Once Middleton and William leave the hospital, an aide promises the pair “will pose for baby pictures.”
