Addicted to Bracelets {Let's Accessorize!}

I've gotten an addiction. 
I can't stop making or wearing bracelets!!
They're so much fun and make me happy! I love bracelets with special messages or images (such as hearts).

I made the one above a while back. It's a brown leather bow bracelet! I've made lots of these, which you can see pictures of here. Would you like to see these in the store? I can't make up my mind, plus they're hard to photograph! Let me know what you think :)

The bracelet above is a friendship bracelet I made for myself. The pattern is hearts and I think it's sooo cute.. I can't stop wearing it :) Would you like to see this in the shop? Let me know :) We can be bffs ;)

I made the 3 bracelets to the left. My bff made the beaded one. And the "HEART" bracelet is a Nike bracelet. I love mixing and matching the colours :)

Above is another pic of the heart bracelet. It doesn't show off the pretty blue colour of the hearts. They're more turquoise than the picture shows.

And lastely, my 3 bracelets from Nike that read CONFIDENCE, DESIRE and HEART. I'm also wearing a pink LIVESTRONG bracelet. I found these in a drawer a few weeks ago. I got them when we lived in Dubai, and I was so happy to find them - I had to wear them straightaway! :) They also remind me to be confident and listen to my heart's desire, which I really like :)

Well, this is what I've been wearing (well, not only that haha) lately :)

So whatcha think? Which bracelets do you like the best?
What's your favourite accessory? (Mine vary, but I looove accessorizing!!!)
Would you like to see any of the bracelets I made in the store?
Let me know in the comments please :)

I'm linking up over herehere and here.

Making Fruit Fun {lots of fancy fruity recipes!}

I've found sooo many yummy recipes on pinterest! A few that have caught my attention have been the ones featuring fruit. The recipes are really clever, and make me crave fruit whenever I look at them! They look fancy, but I think the recipes are simple enough to do :) They would be perfect for a party!!

They say that children are more likely to eat fruit when the fruit is cut up into pieces. Well, I bet they'd eat these fruity dishes as well (maybe even rather than the plain old cut up pieces of fruit?) !

Enjoy these fruitastic pins! ;)

The above photo doesn't include fruit. However, you can switch the caviar with a blackberry or raspberry!

Source: via Katrine on Pinterest

For the above recipe, you could maybe switch out the Prosecco with some water or sprite (to make it kid friendly) and switch the rose petals with some strawberries or raspberries - the possibilities are endless!

What are some of your favorite fruity pins?
Have you tried any of these?

Up-cycled Crafts! - Clothing + Home Decor {Lots of Tutorials}

I've found LOTS of DIY tutorials on pinterest lately.. and I love them all! I'm sooo addicted to pinterest!!

I thought I would share some pins with you today that are both DIYs AND up-cycled crafts.

The positive thing about up-cycling is that it's much cheaper because you can use what you already have!! And if anyone else out there hates throwing things away as much as me, you'll know why up-cycling is the perfect thing for us to do ;)

I've found lot of super cool clothing refashions, accessories made using the simplest of materials we have lying around the house and some home decor.


Which one did you like the best?
What are some of your favorite up-cycled crafts/ pins??
