DIY Friendship Necklace

As soon as Lauren and I saw this editorial in Flare Magazine, we knew we had to recreate these awesome, friendship bracelet-like necklaces.  We promise they are super easy to make and the perfect way to pass the time during those long summer roadtrips.


You’ll need:
– cotton rope or twine
– a pair of scissors
– nuts and washers
– embroidery thread
– thread bobbins or squares of cardboard (all of which you can find at your local hardware and craft store)

Military Time

I don’t think a guy can have too many watches, in fact the more the merrier. This is a classic everyday watch.  The design is based on an iconic 1940s military style from the Timex archives and only available at J.Crew.  I love all the different colored straps, which are a great and inexpensive way to give your watch a whole new look.

(Timex vintage field army watch $150, straps on sale $10-15)

Real Falsies

We know we can count on the beloved YSL mascara for long, lush lashes.  But some occasions call for an extra boost to really get that effet faux cils.  Enter Fast Lash by Tweezerman.  One application of the glittering snowflakes* in between coats of mascara and lashes are transformed into glorious butterfly wings.  Bonus: Fast Lash works with any type of mascara and washes off with soap and water.
