Fall Bucket List PrintableGetting Personal

Posted by Gaetana Friday, September 22 2017 06:37AM

Blog imageHappy Fall!!! Today is officially the first day of fall no matter if the temps don't match the season. I am not complaining.smiley Nevertheless, what better way to get into the feel of the season then with a fall bucket list.

Blog imageNow you guys know the previous seasons I used stickers from Me and My Big Ideas sticker book to create my bucket lists. Since I'm on a printable kick I made my own with a laundry list of actions that anyone anywhere can do. I left plenty of white space so you personalize it. In my case, with fall stickers. It's made for personal size unfortunately. Unless you change the layout of the page at printing.

You have a bit of everything from apple picking to watching Hocus Pocus and everything else in between.

Freebie Friday: Make Stuff Happen PrintableTrends & gossip

Posted by Gaetana Friday, September 15 2017 11:31AM

Blog imageNothing makes me more happy then creating a master to-do list where I can brain dump every little task that I have to complete. It can be stuff that needs to be done a week, or two, or even months away. It goes on the list. This is the same list that I will go to each week and select an item on two to add to my weekly to-do list.

Blog imageThroughout the year you might even fill up a page or two like I have and it's so rewarding to see every item marked off. It features a page full of lines with a circle next to it to mark it off when the task is completed. Super clean and efficient. You'll be glad you added it to your planner.

Please note, this printable for personal size ring bound planners.

July/August Must HavesTrends & gossip

Posted by Gaetana Tuesday, September 12 2017 10:14AM

Blog imageThe summer is basically over here in the northeast so I finally have time to do a proper blog post featuring my monthly favorites for July and August. They're are mostly hair item minus one jewelry item.So enough chit chat and onto my must haves.

Blog imageYou might of seen my post on Instagram about my hamsa bracelet that was missing for months but resurfaced one day when I was cleaning in the most unlikely place. Since I found it and repaired it it hasn't left my wrist except for one day when I forgot to put it one. Hamsa's are a symbol of protection and ward off evil in a nutshell. My original piece was all rose gold plated but I had to repair it with gold tone chain and findings. Nevertheless, I still love it. You can find a similar bracelet on our website but in silver tone. Silver Tone Hamsa Chain bracelet

Blog image
Now with this next product I love what's in the container but of recently this brand has showed it's true colors. I won't touch on the controversy because you already heard about it and has moved on. But when I found it in my hall closet I said I would rather use it then toss it in the trash. Despite the company the product in this jar is pure gold. Shea Moisture Raw Shea & Cupuacu Frizz Defense Hair Masque is the business. One it smells so good but my thick hair loves it. I've noticed less frizz when I use. Will I be repurchasing??? I'm on the fence about that one. But since I stand behind my reasoning for not supporting this brand any longer I won't be repurchasing no matter how cheap you can find them. I'll pass but if you do still support this brand I would purchase this product.

Blog imageHold up, stop the press. Who knew Madam C.J. Walker was still in business. I didn't until I went to CurlFest.Now you know she's an OG of black hair care. I tried it and love it on the first try. I finished 2 packets with almost two months. Yes I was using is sparingly. One it smell soooo good, two the consistency is thick and a little goes a long way.Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture Wonderful Deep Conditioning Masque is the business. It is going to be a staple in my hair care routine.My hair loves moisture and this product gives the moisture it craves and then some. Try it you'll love it. Available at Sephora.

Blog imageWhen it comes to this brand I love Eden BodyWorks and the same can be said for their Jojoba Monoi Line. Their Natural Deep Conditioner is a must for my hair routine. I really should of picked up a full container at CurlFest. Well now I know. This conditioner in combination with my other regular conditioners makes my hair happy. Leaves my hair moisturized and helps makes the detangling process easier. Definitely adding this to my must have conditioners. Available at all your retailers.

Blog imageI have a love and hate relationship with Creme of Nature. I love the scent of it but if I use it too regularly I'm over it.Nevertheless, I was loving there Intensive Conditioning Treatment. If it comes in a bottle like their shampoo does then I've used it in the past. Hands down my hair loves their entire line. It's never heavy or overly thick. My hair just absorbs it and makes for easy detangling. Leaves my hair moisturized. Available at all your retailers.

Blog imageI started using the Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave in Conditioner when I finished my regular leave in. It can be used on a daily basis but I mainly used it after I washed and deep conditioned my hair. Even when I used it in the middle of week on dry hair it add the needed moisture my hair was craving. Super light, no,flaking or product buildup. I'll definitely be purchasing this product in the near future. Available at all your retailers.

Blog imageNow this product surprised the hell out of me. I love me so Design Essentials. By day 3 of any hair style I do in my hair (ie:wash and go, twist out, two strand twist, bun,pony tail, pineapple) my hair is screaming for moisture. I normally spritz my hair with a little bit of water then a moisturizer and restyle. I instead used this in place Design Essentials Natural Coconut & Monoi Curl Enhancing Dual Hydration Milk.Wow! It has milky consistency, super light but highly moisturizing. A little goes a long way. I sealed with oil and my hair was good to go. I will definitely be purchasing when I go in the store. Try it. You'll see exactly what I mean. Available at all your retailers.

July and August were hair products heavy since it was the summer and I tend to spend a lot of time in the sun.Which results in my hair getting fried and needing a ton of moisture added.September has only started so you'll have to wait and see what I'm loving.

Blog imageSeptember is literally days away and fall is definitely in the air. Especially if you're on the east coast. This month I included 2 journaling cards instead of 3. One being plain and straight forward and the second being school related.Since by now all the children should be getting ready to start a new school year. So the stack of books with a pair of reading glasses are a perfect theme for September.

Deeper Connection necklace setCustom Jewelry Projects

Posted by Gaetana Tuesday, August 01 2017 03:14PM

Blog imageIt's that time again for another behind the design of a custom design I was working on. This set was for my godmother's birthday. Each year it's getting harder and harder to top the design before for her. Luckily, I know the type of design she likes. So let's so behind the design of this piece which I'm calling Deeper Connection.

Blog imageLike always when I'm working on a piece I gather all the elements in front of me and see where it goes. This time I grabbed a bunch of coco pukalet beads in brown, some brass drops, agate beads, carnelian beads, glass beads and some aluminum chain to round it all out. I definitely knew I wanted this necklace to have the aluminum chain in it for sure.
Blog imageI then cut a piece of wire, attached a crimp bead and added a jump ring. I got to work on unique combination of beads and some brass drops. (Shown above is what I came up with) Totally random and got it the first time around.
Blog imageI then measured the bead combination and came up with the remaining length of the necklace which I divided by 2 and got the length of chains I needed.
Blog imageI then added an additional jump ring and the chain to each end of the bead mix strand.
Blog imageTo finish off the necklace I added a jump ring and a lobster clasp . While the other end I added two jump rings.
Blog imageAnd the necklace is completed. It's the perfect length and lays beautifully.

Now if you know me I can't make a necklace without including the matching pair of earrings. So I had a ton of supplies left over and I carried over the same elements into the earrings.
Blog imageI found some bead caps while pulling out the headpins and decided to use those to flank the carnelian beads. I took 3 coco pukalet bead and put those on separate head pin.Blog imageI then combined the two elements together but it was missing something so I took one of the brass drops and added it the mix. Added the ear wires and it's complete.

Blog imageHere's a better look at the completed earrings. I think I knocked this one out of the ball park and I can't wait to get my review from my godmother. So what do you think?!?!

August Journaling CardsGetting Personal

Posted by Gaetana Tuesday, July 25 2017 08:20AM

Blog imageAn idea hit me yesterday while scrolling on Pinterest. Why not create monthly journaling cards. So I got to work and came up with 3 different designs. A plain and simple one, one with a watermelon and one with the character I created Sandra the Petty Cat. They're super cute and you can use them any number of ways.
