blogiversary

 On this day two years ago, I decided to start this blog. I had just finished high school and was looking for something to do before I started college in the fall. When I first started posting, I didn't tell anyone about my blog. I was still figuring out the blog world and not sure if I was even going continue mine. A few months went by before I finally decided to share my blog with other people.

Two years later and I'm still blogging! I'm so proud of myself for sticking with it and blogging even when it was hard to find the time. It's a creative outlet that is so special to me, and I love it. Coming up with blog ideas, finding new recipes, sharing tips & ideas, taking pictures, working on DIY projects, creating blog series and everything else that comes with blogging has truly become my favorite thing to do. 

To celebrate this blogiversary, I decided it was time for a new look. I now know way more about html code and css than I ever imagined I would. I hope you all enjoy the new look, and I can't wait to share all the posts I have prepared for summer!

Thank you so much to everyone that reads my blog! It makes my day :)

simple rings

I love rings, but I always have trouble finding ones that I like. So I decided to make my own! I bought some jewelry wire and went to work. And once I realized how easy it was to make my own, I went a little crazy. I felt like I could make any ring that popped into my head! On top of that, it's super easy to adjust the size so that I can wear it on any finger. Here's how I made them!
Start by wrapping some jewelry wire around something like a nail polish top or a marker. This gives the ring a perfect shape. Cut the wire so that it overlaps slightly. This will allow for easy size adjustments later. Try it on! Then squeeze or pull the ring apart slightly to properly customize the ring size.
Once the size is satisfactory, do any additional wire trimming. I like to leave a slight overlapping so that I can change the size depending on what finger I'm wearing it on. Once the wire is trimmed, use a nail file to smooth the rough wire edges. Done with ring #1!
For the second ring, follow the same steps as above. Once the wire is cut, use your fingers to bend a "V" shape into the front of the ring. Follow up with any wire trimming and use the nail file to smooth the edges. Done with ring #2! I made two of these and wore them stacked.

red tour

Taylor Swift's RED tour recently came through my state so of course I had to be there! I'm extremely lucky to be able to say that this was my 4th t.swift concert. Her concerts amaze me every single time. I'm not even sure how else to describe it. It's an experience that I'll always remember. Not that I ever lost it, but it was like I became a fan all over again at that concert. She's pretty awesome.
