Watercolour Wallpapers + Raw Key Lime Tarts

I just recently did a guest post over at Garnish and Glaze and I have to say this Raw Key Lime Tart recipe is so delicious. 
Today, I also did a fun design freebie for watercolour wallpapers! I've been using the Dream BIG one and it makes me happy every time I see it!

What I'm Wearing // Bermuda

I had the most amazing time in Bermuda! It's such an inviting and warm little island that I was so happy to spend two weeks there! :) I did a lot of sight seeing and visiting old friends and old places I've been, it was such a memorable trip! This is one of the outfits I wore for one of the days I was here, although I quickly learned by the end of the day that it was wayyyy too hot for a long skirt! 
 Outfit Details: Skirt=Thrifted Shirt=Urban Behaviour Hat= Ardene's
Anyways, I'll share more pictures later! :) Hope you've all had a fabulous time while I was away! What have you guys been up to?

DIY // Leather Studded Bracelet

Well hello! I'm back! :) I was in Bermuda for a few weeks and now I'm home and ready to get back to blogging! I'll be sharing pictures later, but for now I wanted to share this DIY with you guys! If you've been a reader of the blog for a while, you'll know that I love my jewelry, like the knuckle rings or leather wrapped rings, arm candy has been one of my favorite accessories! This has to be my all time favorite creation, I'm absolutely smitten with this gorgeous turquoise leather that I got from Endless Leather, they have such a great selection!! Anyways! :)
You'll Need: Flat leather, magnetic closure, leather studs (make sure they're for leather, I later found out that mine weren't), pliers, leather hole punch, sturdy glue like welbond, a hammer and a pen!
 Step One: Mark all the spots where you want your studs to go!
 Step Two: Use your leather punch to punch the holes!
 Step Three: Put your leather studs in each hole!
 Step Four: Put a good amount of glue on each end of the leather and put them into the clasps and let dry fully!
 Voila! I've been wearing it non stop since I made it! :)
