The Perfect Pear has moved to a new location where both my blog and design site are now in one location! :) This blog has been so good to me, I've spent so many hours designing it, adding posts, diys, and I'm going to miss it, but I'm so excited about my new site and I'd love for you to come check it out!
To everyone, who has ever commented, emailed or supported my blog, I LOVE YOU!
I had the most amazing time in Bermuda! It's such an inviting and warm little island that I was so happy to spend two weeks there! :) I did a lot of sight seeing and visiting old friends and old places I've been, it was such a memorable trip! This is one of the outfits I wore for one of the days I was here, although I quickly learned by the end of the day that it was wayyyy too hot for a long skirt!
Well hello! I'm back! :) I was in Bermuda for a few weeks and now I'm home and ready to get back to blogging! I'll be sharing pictures later, but for now I wanted to share this DIY with you guys! If you've been a reader of the blog for a while, you'll know that I love my jewelry, like the knuckle rings or leather wrapped rings, arm candy has been one of my favorite accessories! This has to be my all time favorite creation, I'm absolutely smitten with this gorgeous turquoise leather that I got from Endless Leather, they have such a great selection!! Anyways! :)
You'll Need: Flat leather, magnetic closure, leather studs (make sure they're for leather, I later found out that mine weren't), pliers, leather hole punch, sturdy glue like welbond, a hammer and a pen!
Step One: Mark all the spots where you want your studs to go!
Step Two: Use your leather punch to punch the holes!
Step Three: Put your leather studs in each hole!
Step Four: Put a good amount of glue on each end of the leather and put them into the clasps and let dry fully!
Voila! I've been wearing it non stop since I made it! :)
This is where all the magic happens! *woahhh* Since blogging and designing logos and blogs for other people is my full time job, it was really important for me to have a space that inspires me and is pretty to look at! :) I finally got a little desk, along with a cork board for all the things I love! Now you can finally see where I work!
I loooove having fresh flowers, they totally brighten up the space!
Happy! :) It feels so good to be productive and have a space that inspires me!
p.s. happy Canada day for you fellow Canadians out there!!
Its no secret that life can get pretty stressful!! Over the years, I've found that a good book and nice warm bubble bath with some candles certainly does the trick to relieve some of my stress! I love baths so you can imagine how much I love this bath caddy from RedEnvelope, its so handy and I've been using it on a regular basis! It perfectly fits across your bath, with a place for a book, some wine and a bar of your favorite soap! Not only did it show up at my door in a nice big red box tied with a pretty white bow (totally adorable!!) but its sooo sturdy, and feels really well made, it actually surprised me by how heavy it is!
I love using it to brainstorm ideas for the future and for blog posts, it perfectly holds every single book I've tried on it so far!
As if it cant get any better, they even engrave your initials on it! :) yayy!!
Red lipstick was always kind of scary for me! Haha, I don't even know why, but it was one of those things that I never bought because I didn't want to spend money on something that I was almost certain would look bad on me! BUT, I bought some the other day, and I have to say I kind of love it, I feel very vintage, and I kind of love that! :)
Details= all thrifted, except for the shoes (which I cant remember where I got..)
ps. can we also talk about the fact that 'lipstick' has a 'k' on it, since when?!
