Jewelry Making + Tags + Prizes

I am so glad we had a long Memorial Day weekend, I really needed that extra day off to relax and catch some sleep. And because we didn't have to go to work on Monday, the bf and I decided to go have some fun Sunday night by eating hotpot at 10PM and then singing Karaoke afterwards. Well, it's more like I sung and he watched, haha. I want a Karaoke buddy :) If anyone is interested to come sing K with me next time, let me know!! 

This weekend, I also found a new hobby!!! I've always been interested in jewelry making, especially seeing all the pretty pieces many blogger girls made, I fell in love with Swarvoski crystal pendants :) Michael's had a Memorial Day 20% off sale, so I got out of bed super early and dragged the bf out of the house to get some supplies.

Since I am a noob at doing this, it took me a while to find all the supplies I needed to make a complete necklace/bracelet. But thankgoodness I got everything and didn't have to make a second trip out. 

And from all those ...  turned into these a couple hours later:

4 neckaces, 2 pairs of earrings, and a bracelet. And a LOT of pink! hahaha. What can I say, it's my favorite color :)

First the earrings:

Then the bracelet, which matches the second earrings:

And the necklaces, the first necklace also matches the bracelt and the second pair of earrings. They are a set together :)

I wore the first necklace out today, the Swarvoski crystals look so shiny under the sun! 

Last but not least, A mommy and baby heart necklace for a special friend, who also shares the same love for pink and all things cute, you know who you are :p This is also my favorite piece out of everything I made yesterday:

All packed and ready for the new owner:

I had so much fun making my first batch of jewelries, and I really love how sparkly, colorful, and elegant those Swarvoski crystal pendants are. I am glad to have found a new hobby. I just got more supplies last night and I'll be making more later. haha can you tell I am addicted? :D

I won Jen's Revlon's Runway Collection artificial nails giveaway a while ago, and received her prizes in the mail today. She sent me two sets of artificial nails in in styles "Sequins" and "Starlet". I love both of the designs, very elegant yet simple for everyday wear. I've never successfully applied artificial nails on myself before, I can't wait to try again and see how they work for me. I've heard great reviews from many blogger girls about these Revlon ones. Thanks so much Jen!!!
