2 Broke Girls: Caroline's Necklace

Who makes the original two broke girls necklace? I don't know...but I make my own versions! 
Caroline's Necklace: Two Broke Girls

The only new show this year that I have grown to love is 2 Broke Girls.  2 Broke Girls is a quirky comedy about two best friends who are struggling to get by while they pursue their dream of starting a cupcake business. One of the main characters, Caroline, wears the most adorable double strand pearl necklace in almost every scene. I fell in love with this necklace as quickly as I fell in love with the show, so I had to make a necklace for myself. I get so many compliments on this whenever I wear it, I have started to get requests from friends as well as strangers for a Caroline Necklace of their own.

This necklace wasn't just fun to make, but it is such a great inspiration piece. There are so many different things you could do to make different versions of this necklace (different chain, different color/size pearls) and either way it would still be adorable.

 I promise to have a tutorial on this necklace posted in the near future!  Are there any pieces of jewelry you've been lusting after?

If you don't want to make this necklace and would rather buy one ready to go, then visit my etsy shop for one :

New perfumes

It has been almost two months since I last posted, I have missed being on here!

Anyways, I recently stumbled upon a few new perfumes I thought I would share. With summer quickly approaching, I had to include these 2 perfumes because not only do they smell lovely, but they are perfect for Spring and Summer.

The first one is a new spin on a classic: Light Blue Dreaming in Portofino. This is an updated version of Light Blue, which was launched in 2001. You might be wondering what makes this new version different than the original. The best way I know to describe it is there is more of a floral scent as well as a musk tone. It is still very fresh and light.

The second perfume is new altogether, it is Candy by Prada. I first loved this scent when I came across a sample in a magazine. The main notes for this perfume are caramel and musk. It is a darker, richer perfume. All it takes is one spray and you are good to go, anything more than one or two sprays and it is way too strong.

So these are some of my new favorites. To see the list of my all time favorites, refer to this post from last year

Let me know if you come across any new scents that are worth trying!
