I always find it funny when magazines recommend jewelry pieces that cost upwards of $50 as items that can be afforded on any budget. I don’t know about you, but as a recent college graduate who has yet to begin her career, there is no way I can drop $50 or more on a necklace or bracelet, no matter how cute it is.
That’s why I love these DIY Jeweled and Studded Cuffs from Life in Mod. Blogger Camille Dipaola created these gorgeous and affordable bracelets with just a few supplies you can find at your local craft store. She walks you through the project step by step, and once you know the basics, you can take your own creative spin with designs of your own.
These cuffs would be a great addition to any wardrobe. They’re great pieces of statement jewelry for your next girls-night-out or date night. To get crafty, check out the Full DIY over at Life in Mod.

Throughout your life, you will receive innumerable favors, gifts, congratulations and condolences. In exchange, you’ll be expected to reciprocate with thank you notes. This may be the modern world, but a text or Facebook message doesn’t cut it; a sincere, handwritten letter is in order.
When it comes to actually writing, you may find, despite your gratitude, that you have no idea what to say, and that no combination of words could do this deed or present justice. The contents of your note of course will vary based on who you’re thanking and what for, but any thank you should follow this basic formula. Any personal thank you, that is. Continue reading
