For a quick and easy necklace organizer use a memo board and push pins to hang and display your necklaces.
For extra support for the push pins, glue a piece of cardboard to the back of the board.
I customized the frame by adding droplets of different coloured nail polish. You can also customize your board by adding a piece of patterned fabric to the corked area.
How do you keep your accessories organized?
There’s a few different ways you can wear a printed strapless dress, and it’s very easy to do because your not limited by sleeves or pant legs. Try wearing it as a skirt or top, and mix and match it with different pieces.
I picked up this dress from H&M about four years ago (gosh time flies!). I love how colourful and summery it looks so I’ve worn it multiple times with different clothing pieces.
Because it’s strapless I like to wear bit more accessories than I typically would, so I paired it with a necklace and a body chain. You can DIY your own body chain with my tutorial here.
Remember those colourful fake tattoos you sometimes wore as a kid? Meet the grown up much sexier version, Flash Tattoos.
You may have spotted these jewelry-like tattoos popping up on bodies this summer. Lasting 4 to 6 days Flash tattoos are temporary, waterproof and easy to apply. Each collection includes 3-4 designs which gives you many possibilities to get creative with the layout and locations of your tattoos.
I think it’s neat how Flash Tattoos combines the concepts of tattoos and jewellery into one stylish idea. It’s also a simple way to add some shine if you don’t want to wear your jewelery to the beach. Definitely creative thinking.
You can order Flash Tattoos at flashtat.com.

Your shoes should fit when you buy them, but if you need to quickly stretch or break them in there’s an easy way to do it. Read on to learn how.
In the corner of your eye you spot the perfect pair shoes, you ask for your size and hold your breath hoping it’s in stock. Your excitement builds when you see the box coming towards you. You try them on, maybe walk around in them for a bit and they seem to fit perfectly. That’s when you decide “I’ll take them!”
You find the right outfit to compliment the shoes, and then suddenly while your out your feet start aching in pain. Okay, maybe it’s not that dramatic but I had a similar situation happen to me recently, and its not fun.
Here’s how you can avoid the above situation and quickly break in a pair of shoes or stretch a pair that are too snug.
A new pair shoes
A thick pair of socks (or double up on a regular pair)
1. Put on the socks
2. Put on the shoes
3. Turn on your blow dryer
4. Test the blow dryer on a small area. If the heat doesn’t affect the shoe continue to the next step.
5. Aim the dryer towards the areas that are too snug while wiggling your feet
6. Repeat until you have your desired fit
Bonus tip. It’s best to go shoe shopping at the end of the day, or at the end of your shopping trip because your feet tend to swell slightly over the course of the day due to standing and walking. This will help to ensure that you get a comfortable fit.
Here’s to happy feet 🙂

If you’re going out for a night on the town and you decide on a risqué revealing outfit with a plunging neckline or an open back it can be really difficult to find the right bra. Adhesive bras are a great leave-your-regular-bra-at-home solution. They lift, support, add shielding, and come in variety of shapes and styles. When you apply them make sure your skin is lotion and oil free and they should last all night. You can find them at lingerie stores and some pharmacies (specifically Shoppers Drug Mart).
Ever have those days where you have a last minute change of heart about an outfit, or you try on a million pieces of clothing before you find the one outfit that works? Finally content, you do one last check in the mirror and whomp whomp there’s a bunch of ugly looking deodorant stains along the sides of your shirt. Don’t fret.Take a fabric dryer sheet and gently rub it on the stains to remove them, and you’ll be good to go!
If your gold or silver coloured jewellery isn’t the real deal, paint on a layer of clear nail polish to keep them from tarnishing and changing colour. Stay Shinin!
