Bows, Boots, & Décor

What do you think of my new cup? Isn’t it adorable?

Hello, hello! I hope the weekend finds you all doing well. I have a mix of a blog post for today, so it’ll keep it interesting!

I thought it would be fun to do something different for starters, by doing a little walkthrough of how my house is decorated. I have a lot of cute details in my place, so I thought it’d be fun to show a bit of that. Here we go!

Bathroom

My favorite thing about the bathroom layout is the floral touch I made to my cabinet. I bought the faux-plant vine thing at Michael’s a year or so ago, and it made such a drastic difference to the overall look. The little canvas on the wall is one of my favorite quotes, so it’s a nice reminder to see when I’m getting ready for the day.

Remember I Dream of Jeannie? When I watched the show, I totally loved the little bottle she lived in…

Color theme-wise, that’s what I was going for, and I think I’ve done really well getting the right pillows and such for my bed. ❤

Sometimes, all it takes is an interesting arrangement to give the room some color! I made this little floral-looking centerpiece – I bought the items at Joann’s and put them in a vase. They have such a variety of imitation plants that the possibilities are endless!

I hope you enjoyed my little mini-tour. 🙂

Moving on to the outfit post: I decided to bring out some bow headbands, taking a little break from my usual flower ones. Aren’t these little rings super cute?

Doesn’t matter how old I get; I’ll always be all about pink stuff and bows. I think it’s embedded in my DNA or something, so why fight it?

This blouse from H&M I bought a week or two ago is one of my favorite tops now. It screams, I can be fun AND professional! Win-win!

But then everything flies off the rails when you bring in the brown tights and the boots with the bow. It’s like a professional kawaii cowgirl…? Who knows. I don’t take myself too seriously when it comes to fashion; I aim to be fun, and pretty much a woman who never stopped playing dress up, essentially.

And there you have it, folks! I hope you enjoyed this whimsical post. Have a fantastic weekend and enjoy yourselves!

See you next time!

 

 

 

New Items!

Yesterday was a gloriously awesome day, having sold two rings in my Etsy shop (yay!) and shipping them out. I was seriously ecstatic, because I hadn’t sold anything in awhile. :/ I’m sure people wondered why I looked so happy to be at the post office.

Since I sold two, I made two new ones to keep my shop full. Although, I really do need to make at least two more. I need more color variations to choose from and what not!

Hello all!

For my first official blog post, I thought I’d take the time to talk about one of my favorite hobbies: designing my own rings. At first I just did it for fun, but then I decided to open my own Etsy shop about a month ago (which you can find here).

Beginnings

The first rings I began making, I glued onto a wooden plank, then framed the ring with a string of pearls. That was a lot of trial and error, because the string of pearls continuously popped off. The main decorative pieces I use are cabochons and acrylic crystal beads. I use gorilla glue to keep everything glued down tight! In my experience, it’s the best glue I’ve ever used.

I always have fun making new ring creations. I love anything bright, cute and fun, so when I’m designing rings, that’s always what I aim to create in the end.

As of recently, I discovered lovely cameos (the foundation for the rings pictured above, at my work station). These little things are my go-to when designing rings now, because they’re perfect settings and they come in so many different colors. 🙂

As I mentioned earlier, I opened my own Etsy shop about a month ago! It was something that was on my bucket list for a long time, and I finally went for it. My shop name is PinkBopp; there’s a funny story behind that, too. I couldn’t come up with a shop name, so I randomly merged my favorite color (pink) and my favorite comet (Hale-Bopp) since I’m a bit of an astronomy nerd. Random, I know!

Overall, I’m happy with all of my little creations, and I love being able to wear them out-and-about, and most of all, be able to say I made it myself when people ask where I got it. 🙂
