Hello lovely readers! Today I’d like to share the DIY tutorial for the Gem Pendant Necklace I designed for Wander & Hunt. It was inspired by an over-the-top, bejeweled and utterly gorgeous Dannijo pendant – and so I couldn’t help myself but re-create all that glittery goodness. Here’s how:

Just like everyone these days, my life is jam-packed
. From morning to night, I’m going to the gym, taking my son to school, running errands, scouting locations, meeting my business partner, chatting with the girls over tea, picking up my son, and going to after-school activities (and then maybe out to dinner if I’m lucky!). Basically, my feet are two busy dogs
and I usually hit my 10,000 steps daily with little effort needed. With the new feather-light Reebok Skyscapes
, I can go from errands to car to walking to running around – all while supported, comfy, and stylish.
The lace-to-toe molded silhouette and unique design provide amazing comfort
(seriously, you have to try these to believe it!!). This shoe is crafted borrowing the materials and soft molding process used to create lingerie, which provides all-around comfort and creates a shoe so lightweight that it weighs only 5.0 ounces. (The soft foam material in the upper feels just like my favorite molded bra – which feels almost like I’m wearing nothing on my feet at all.) I love that the shoe isn’t covered with all sorts of stitching and rubber bits and things that catch and weigh me down: the design is sleek and streamlined and looks like a hybrid between an athletic shoe and a casual sneaker
. Inside the footbed the Skyscape features Skyspring technology
, which is a unique design architecture designed to help support the foot and provide all day comfort for my on-the-go lifestyle. It’s just like walking on clouds.
(“So lightweight and comfortable, you’ll forget you have them on”
is their tagline.)
Perfect for keeping up with the dog: Pudding may have super-short legs, but she can run!
Plus whilst wearing them I love to coordinate them to my outfit
– and they don’t look as if I just walked out of a spinning class or something. (They’re now my choice of footwear when picking up my son at school for the long walk from the car to his classroom, standing around the playground, and then back to the car.) They come in some fun and fashion-forward colors
(mine are Pink Fusion!) and cost under $70 for a pair. Reebok Skyscapes are available for online purchase
, or at select Kohl’s, Reebok FitHub, or Outlet locations for in-store purchase
You can win a YourReebok Custom Card and create your own pair of Reebok Skyscape shoes!

I’ve just completed a super-fun collab with DIY kit shop Wander & Hunt – and designed 2 special DIY projects just for them.
The first, the DIY Radiant Rhinestone Belt, was actually inspired by a rhinestone belt I spied on Anthropologie.com this past Winter, and figured it would be a snap to re-create. For $29 you get the ribbon base, felt for attaching the rhinestones, glue, a skewer, and an absolutely HUGE amount of rhinestones to deck out your waist embellishment. Gorgeous over a plain shirtdress or even a light coat, this will be an accessory you reach for again and again to dress up your outfits.

For the second project, the DIY Gem Pendant Necklace kit, I drew inspiration from a Dannijo bejeweled pendant I saw on Pinterest. Again, for just $29 you receive a bevy of gems, glue, a skewer, PVC plastic, endcaps, jump rings, and a rope for the necklace. The design is super-chic – and creates a fabulous statement!

You can also check out all the other DIY kits available at Wander & Hunt here (everything under $70!), as well as all the other supplies and materials that they offer. They have a ton of tutorials on the site as well, so you can get your DIY on without even buying a kit. Standard shipping is also free worldwide!
Thanks so much to the team at Wander & Hunt for making this happen! I had a blast designing these projects.

Spring is finally here – and that means Spring cleaning! I always head to my closet first and foremost to do a major purge this time of year. It’s cathartic and frees up my mind to get rid of lots of old junk that has accumulated – and that I no longer wear and enjoy. And what do I do with everything I pull out of that overstuffed madness? I head to Goodwill and donate it all – since I know it creates jobs and helps my community: one of the best ways to create a local impact by investing back into it. (more…)
