A little DIY

It’s been  a while since I made a jewelry. I didn’t even realize how much I missed it until I decided I needed a chain for a Chanel medallion pendant I got online. I bought it as recycled fashion, the authentic pendant with a necklace chain but the chain does not match the pendant at all, I tried looking for a ready made chain but could not find the best one, so I decided for a DIY, nothing fancy, simple and basic, see material used below

1 – 17″ brass chain

1 – Brass Trigger clasp 1 – Open jump ring

1 – Flat nose pliers and curve tip nose pliers

I found these materials at www.houseofgems.com. Their prices are reasonable, they ship fast and hey they are located in Orange County, CA so just 1 day ship to me. I searched for the right color of chains and findings at the other local stores but couldn’t find exactly what I am looking for to make this chain.

They also have some really nice beads for my future DIY later.

Yoga pants fashion

Saks Fifth Avenue

Yesterday I did a full count of the many yoga pants I’ve purchased since I immersed myself in the wonderful practice of Yoga. Sure I still couldn’t pronounce nor remember properly the Sanskrit terms for the poses but really it’s the execution that really matter right? Anyway, I counted 12 and I think, I may have some more in the depths of my closet but whatever! I want more!!!. They are so comfortably awesome. I wear them at work without looking like I am ready to do a dancer’s pose anytime. With the right accessories and a little bit of attitude people might not even notice it. I also use it on Saturday and Sunday mornings errand with the children before attending an afternoon class.

Leggings and knee high boots are my absolute staple pieces during the winter season. It is the one thing I can wear 5 days a week, so really the excessive purchase of yoga pants is not an excess at all since a. I use and need it for yoga b. it is an excellent alternative to the boring cotton material leggings c. I you don’t know yet, I have a penchant for psychedelic-ish and print design on pants c. duh! multi-use anywhere – studio, work, lounging, lazy days.
