DIY Kate Spade Inspired Splatter Necklace

I fell in love with these Kate Spade rhinestone splatter earrings, and recently picked up a few rhinestone necklaces at Target in the clearance section for $1.99 (leftover from Christmas at 90% off!) and thought I'd try and recreate the look
I used yellow and pink nail polish, and toothpicks to spread the splatter out a bit 
Finished product

Mardi Gras in Burlington

I recently went to the Magic Hat Mardi Gras in Burlington, VT
Despite being March in the Northeast, it was a pleasant day 
They hold a parade during the day (family friendly) and have festivities throughout the night 
I'm a Burlington native so it was nice being back
Church Street has some great boutiques and shopping (I held back..difficult)

and great restaurants...

Fab finds for February!

Here are some deals I snagged this month. 

At the BCBG outlet, they were having an end of the season sale with a few sale racks that were only $9!
I purchased 3 dresses- this gorgeous nude number, and these tiered midi dresses
and three sweaters that will be great to transition into spring with

While in the city for Ed Sheeran, I got this Reiss jacket as a valentines day gift for an amazing price! I wore it prematurely this weekend and was freezing! I also got a bunch of great stuff from Zara- averaging $10 bucks a piece, we also ran into Nate Berkus while we were there. 

I found this Theory trench coat in the Goodwill for $7 that fits like a glove, and this Chloe runway dress from 2008 for under $5. 

While getting rid of some items at Plato's Closet, I snagged these Citizens of Humanity jeans (in petite!) for $3!

This month, I want to concentrate on Spring cleaning, and not adding anymore to my closet and trying to edit what I already have...easier said than done!

Polka Dot Floral Nails

While flipping through Glamour I saw this really cute polka dot-esque nail design that I really liked. My 5 day old blue mani was chipping, so I decided to try it out with some bright colors over the spots that needed some help, and I'm actually really pleased on how it turned out!
I used a toothpick to drop varying sizes of dots on the wear spots on my old mani, and layered them over each other for a really interesting look. It extended the life of my mani by 3 days too!

Macro lens fun with iPhone

I recently picked up a set of lenses for my iPhone off amazon and I am obsessed with the macro lens
Here's some shots with it

I first fell in love with the olloclip, but found a cheaper alternative on amazon. I am really pleased with them and use them at least once a week. I did have an issue with the magnetic piece staying on my phone at first, but by placing something with weight and/or holding it on with the initial application helped the adhesive stay much better and haven't had a problem since.
