Bad Blogger

Ok, I have seriously been a bad blogger over here. I have so much going on. I read a really great book, I have a new recipe to post from an amazing food blogger, I am in my last semester of grad school, and I am sure there are tons of things on my 101 in 1001 list I have completed or am working. But I have been so busy I have not even had a chance to look at the list.
But there will be posts coming up about the book I read and actually 2 new recipes I have tried that were yummy.
So there is more to come.
I have been blogging over on Journey to Green and if you stop by there soon you can get a discount on a wonderful, natural, aluminum-free deodorant that actually works, as well as other all natural bath and body products from the fabulous Etsy seller, Rachel of Soapwalla Kitchen. So run over there and check it out.
I will be posting here soon.

DIY Chain Boots!

I bought these black boots a couple weeks ago and was going to wear them as is, but after awhile I thought they looked pretty boring. So I decided to buy some chain and do something a bit interesting.

From bland and boring...
Photobucket blinged out! ('s the best I could do.) Here's the outside...

and the inside...

The shoes are from Wal-Mart and the chains are from a store in Vancouver called the i-Found gallery (on Main Street). It's a really awesome store, full of antique jewelery, charms and pendants. I have made a few custom necklaces there already. They also sell tons of different types of chain by the foot, which is where I got the chain for this DIY project. I know you can also buy chain on ebay, and another way to get chain is to go to a cheap-o clothing store and check out the necklace selection. I just grabbed a couple tools from my closet to pry open the chain where I wanted to attach it to another strand, and after a bit of finegalling I got everything where I wanted it to go.

I'm really happy with how they turned out! This is definetly an easy project that anyone can do.

I just discovered a new street style website- Streethearts! There are some totally amazing looks on this site that I am in love with. The website is just over a year old and I hope they keep it up...

And the obsession continues...

There is never a time when I don't want anything from I especially like the way they style their models with jewelery and other accessories- it's always accessible, something that you could wear out the door and into real life. Add in pleather, crosses and other on-trend items and you've got me!
