Exercise, Money and Am I a Student?

Hey everyone, so if you are a current assiduous follower of this blog of mine, you might have noticed that I have not been posting a lot. Well basically I’ve been running up and down here and there with a lot of “interesting” things, and today I wanted to share them with you.

Well, first of all you know I’ve been working out in my fitness/health side for some time now, and somehow the past months I got stuck in my weight and was not feeling good. I just knew I needed a change, so one day at 4:00 AM I decided to give a big turnaround to my routine. I started working out early in the morning!! Now this is a big challenge, because my working hours are from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM, so I started getting up at 5:00 AM and going to the gym.

This has been a BIG challenge and I’ve been trying to get USED TO my new schedule, which I won’t deny is a bit harsh, BUT the feeling I get every day after I leave the gym ready to start a new day is PRICELESS. No wonder I heard that working out in the mornings is the best thing. On my weight I have not seen big changes, but my clothes are loose now and I feel great, which is the most important thing.

On the other side, well I think I am going back to school (wait, I am going back to school)…I still cannot believe it. Two years ago I finished my Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting and I felt that was time to go for my Masters, it all happened very sudden and I’ve actually been given a great opportunity that I cannot reject. So yes, I will be a student again. Not a full time because with a master is very different and this one is great because classes are only on Saturday’s so this will not mess with my weekly goals.

So where does this leave my blog and my YouTube channel? Well I’ve been giving it some thought and I will definitely not be leaving it because I love it, this is my hobby my escape and something I truly love doing, and I know school and work are first (after all they pay my bills and the stuff I review for all of you guys! ?) but I have to be realistic and I know that I will not be posting every day as I used to. Hang in there posts will be juicier!!. Plus thanks to these new activities I have now tons of new Post Ideas for all of you, so it is a win win situation.

On my No spending month let’s say that I’ve been a little overboard with my expenses (just see my YouTube Hauls) but now that my birthday is coming well let’s say that It will be over for some time, maybe until winter comes. But I have managed to keep my savings in good condition still and keep moving forward!!

Wishing you all a happy Weekend!!

Until Next Time,

xoxo

DIY: Peter Pan Collar

So I was rumbling thru YouTube the other day and found out a Peter Pan Collar Necklace done by missglamorazzi on her channel. I really liked the idea and I had to recreate it, if you started following recently I already did a peter pan collar in the past), and although I really liked it, it kind of choked me a little (maybe because my pattern was not well cut, or I have a big neck LOL). Anyways, in the video she gives you the link where she got other pattern, this was done by Alison Faulkner from The Alison Show (click if you want it here, and this is what I did.

So what will you need for this DIY?

  • A piece of felt I bought mine in beige color to match the beads.
  • Any desired colored beads I got mine at Michaels.
  • Glue you can use craft glue but I didn’t buy any so I used a hot gun.
  • Scissors.
  • Lace.
  • A Space you can work on, in my case I have an old cardboard.
  • Pencil or Marker.

First you need to download the pattern and print it out, before cutting it out I modified it just a bit to make the curve of the collar more prominent (which missglamorazzi also did), this really made the difference in my case. Then I just folded the felt in half and with my pattern cut the collar.


Then I just started gluing the beads, I waited for my glue gun to be really hot to make sure the beads would not fall. I started gluing all the corners because I wanted to alternate colors, but you can go randomly if you want to.



When all the corners where finished I just added beads randomly making sure they glued to the felt.


Last, I just cut two pieces of lace and glued them to the back of my necklace.

And that was it


I can now enjoy a Peter Pan Collar Necklace. I like this because I can use it with a lot of different colored blouses and looks very good and classy, I even received several compliments for this. I just love it.

Until Next Time,

xoxo
