Step 1: Cut your string (you can use any color you want), into two strands. One strand needs to be an inch longer than the other (so it will lay flat).
Step 2: Begin stringing your beads on both strands. Tie a knot at each end of the beads so they stay in place.
Step 3: Once both of your strands are beaded, thread them through the toggle clasp and tie a double knot. *You can also use a jump ring and chain if you would like (I opted for the easier version of just double-knotting).
That's it, my friends.you're done! So easy, but so cute!
Try-It-Tuesday: Splurge vs. Save
As some of you know, I am a lover of all things Bobbi Brown. However, I don't work for them anymore, and so buying the products I have grown to love has become a bit taxing on my wallet. I have been
Bobbi Brown Extra SPF 25 Moisturizing Balm ($88)
This Balm is aaaamaaazing! I have uber-sensitive (being a redhead) skin, and this stuff is phenomenal if you have dry, sensitive or flaky skin. It helps with wrinkles and fine lines and feels super rich, without being sticky. I have used this for about five years, and never thought I could find anything that would compare to it. Now, don't get me wrong, if you want (or CAN) spend the money..I say go for it! You won't regret it.
However, if you want to save a little money, I found a moisturizer I like almost as much for about $10.
It's Eucerin Q-10 Anti-Wrinkle for Sensitive Skin. It doesn't have a weird smell (I'm super OCD about smells), and is rich and creamy. It has already done wonders for my skin this winter! I can't tell you how thrilled I am (and how thrilled my hubby is) that I saved $70! I got mine at Ulta, if you want to check it out.

Tasty Thursday: Creamy White-Chicken Chili
I have been asked to share this recipe, because it is just so delicious! It is one of my favorites and as easy as 1, 2, Chili!

2 cans Great Northern Beans
1 (14.5 oz) can Chicken Broth
2 cans Green Chilies
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Cumin
1 tsp. Pepper
1 tsp. Oregano
Rinse and drain the beans. Combine all ingredients in a soup pot. Bring to a boil and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup sour cream and heat through.
Serve with hot breadsticks or whatever you want!
Who doesn't want a good laugh everyday? I make it a point to try and get my little babe to laugh, and when he does, it is seriously one of the best parts of my day.
I saw this video the other day, and busted up laughing. This is SO me and my friends. Get your laugh on! :)
Well there you have it! A week of posts!
A quick THANK YOU to all of my friends, family and fantastic followers who have given me so much support on this blog so far. You guys have made me feel all tingly :) Love you all!
