To DIY For: Jersey Knit Bracelet from V and Co.

I used to love a good friendship bracelet.  The thought of those braided rainbow bands bring me back to Camp Timber Trails, campfires, and pigtails.  But somewhere down the road, friendship bracelets became childish and unfashionable.

Until now...

If these DIY bracelets by V and Co. don't make you want to run to the nearest fabric store and make one for each of you closest had no childhood and I pity you.  But for those of you who enjoy a handmade bracelet, check out this tutorial from V and Co.

It's super easy, ad once you get the hang of it you'll be making bracelets in just 5 minutes.  Vanessa shows you how to make two, three, and four-fingered woven bracelets that are perfect for summer trips to the beach or backyard BBQ's.

Here's how my first one turned out:

Mine is a little rougher around the edges, as my edges weren't as clean while I was cutting my fabric.  I don't mind it gives it a bit more edge.

Happy finger-weaving!

Brotherly Love

I'm super stoked...

My little brother is coming to visit me in Los Angeles by himself for the first time.
Since booking the flight, I have been concocting various plans to treat him to the best week of sibling fun ever known to man...or 16-year-old-boys.

The latest of my ideas is to turn the garage (or at least my side of it, since I share it with my neighbor) and the back patio area into a BBQ fun zone.  All I need to make my hosting dreams a reality are:

1. Pig Terracotta Grill - World Market
3. Paper Lanterns - Luna Bazaar
4. Red/ White Meditation Beach Chair - World Market
5. Pompeian Red Adirondack Loveseat Collection - World Market
6. USB Amp Speaker - Urban Outfitters
