Organization: Jewelry

I had to retire my old Claire's earring holder and the rest of my random jewelry boxes. In other words, you could say I needed to "centralize" my jewelry system. So I decided to spend money on nice jewelry trays!

I bought these from Bed, Bath, & Beyond. The brand is Neatnix. I got the two on the right as a pack of 2 for $20. Then I got the one of the far left for $15. Great deal because I was comparing it to other nice leather trays that totaled $50, but I'm a recent college grad, I don't need fancy. Plus these come with plastic covers to prevent dust! Love that.

Oh yeah, they're stackable and the top one slides easily across!! Anyway, here are the trays all filled up!

I would highly recommend this as a jewelry storage solution :) These sets are actually on sale for $30 instead of $50 on ideeli if you're a member!! I would definitely get it on sale right now if I didn't already have it!

July: Handmade Cards and Grad Gifts

Birthday Cards:

I started heading toward the stamping route because stamps are very convenient and versatile.

Thank You Cards:

Grad Gifts:

Decided to do a variety of frames with quotes displayed in them.
"Go the extra mile. It's never crowded."
"Let Go. Let God."
"You're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem,
& twice as beautiful as you'd ever imagine."

Favorite Nails of Summer 2013

Before I officially start working, I still have the freedom to wear whatever nail polish color I want! So about a month ago, my aunt gave me a sample nail polish she received but didn't want. Also, I just bought a glitter nail polish to paint my ring finger tips. It was my first time painting my ring finger tips and I loved it. It turned out to be a bright, almost neon coral colored polish with a dark metallic gray glitter for the tips. Here's the finished product!

The colors I used were: 
- Color Club in Reign in Spain (6010)
- Sephora by OPI in Justa' Pinch of Glitter
