just an idea.

I love this casual summer look. That hat by the way from F21 is becoming my favorite. I love the touch of bright yellow on the rim, and it was such a good price! I have also worn these sandals almost every day this summer so far... haha.

When I first started my blog I shortly after opened up a little shop on Etsy called Alycia Belle Creations, where I sold headbands that I would make. Growing up my Dad always called me Belle or Alycia Belle (he still does by the way!) It is a nickname that only he (and sometimes my mamma) calls me, and I thought it suited the name of my little shop. I have missed that little shop, and have been wanting to re-open it with something else handmade to get my creative juices flowing again - my hands get bored!

With Trevor gone for his internship, my little sister moved in with me for the month of May and into June. Even though she spent most of her time with her fiance (a-hem!) it brought back memories of when we had shared a room together growing up. Taking this inspiration and the fun trend of bright colors going on right now, I have been going crazy making fun glammed up friendship bracelets and beaded bracelets.

I am planning on reopening up my shop and selling some A.B.C Bracelets. They are a throw back to the girl's camp days, with some added glam. I think they are a fun accessory that will add a POP to your look.

As you can see I am wearing some of the bracelets I have made in this post, what do you think? I want to make something YOU personally want, so I think I will be doing it custom order style. I have much more then you see here - think swarovski crystals, and crystal chain ;) - but wanted to get some input on the idea of doing some cheap fun custom bracelets!

  16. I love them. I'd buy a matching pair for me and my sister ;) She moved home for the summer, and we shared a room again. We're 22 and 21 respectively, so living at home again, nonetheless with each other, was strange. I'm moving to GA in a few weeks, though, so it was nice to have the chance to live together one last time.
