In my last DIY post I made tassel bookmarks and after I finished making the bookmarks I had left over tassels so decided to use the left over tassels to make a tassel necklace.

So I was all set to make a tassel necklace and then I found some extra things in my craft box from making my DIY square knot necklace. Hmm. Why not combine my left over craft things to make a statement necklace using tassels, a square knot and beads…

Now, I have a super cool DIY Statement Tassel Necklace!

Dear Twenty Something Series Introduction


, , , , , , , , , ,

In my 1st Blogiversary post I talked about the new series I am starting. I’m excited about starting my Dear Twenty Something Series because as you may know I am a twenty something, specifically a late twenty something. My fellow twenty something women: Smart Twenties, Twenties Chic and Advice from a Twenty Something really inspired me to start this series. They were the first twenty something blogs I followed. When I first starting blogging a year ago I did not know that there were blogs about the twenty something experience.

Before I get started I want to share this funny video by Akilah, Obviously called Twenty Something Fridays. When I saw this video it made me lol. It sounds a bit like me minus the wine. ha! Akilah is a twenty something that shares comedy videos with a bit of hair videos tossed in. She is awesome! She’s funny :-)

Now, that you are cozy grab yourself a cuppa tea and let’s start chatting about our twenties!  Continue reading

Just a Little Bit of Inspiration Part Deux!


, , , , , , , , ,

If you have read my blog for some time you know that I like to be inspired. Earlier this year I wrote a blog post called, Just a Little Bit of Inspiration! I talked about how Andrea Lewis YouTube Channel is very inspiring for my fellow 20 somethings. This summer I won her #SelfLove Tank giveaway! If you want to find out more about Andrea Lewis check out her YouTube Channel.

For this inspirational post I want to spotlight a YouTuber (Kris) that I have subscribed to for years. When I subscribed to Kris she had one YouTube Channel, CrystalRoseLove. Now she has another channel, BeautifulLifeToday. Both channels are great. On her main channel she talks about relationships, beauty, hair, and fitness. The one thing I notice about Kris is that she is passionate and has a happy approach on life. I am a firm believe that if you want to be a positive person you have to share positive things and think positive. Escape the negativity (of course some will be there, but work on minimizing it). We can focus on the outside beauty, but we need to also focus on the inner beauty as well. Her BeautifulLifeToday channel showcases her inspirational bits on how to be positive, happy and beautiful on the inside. You should check out both of her channels.

Both Andrea Lewis and Kris are amazing women that are positive. They smile and I can tell that they are positive people in life outside of YouTube. When I watch BeautifulLifeToday and Andrea Lewis I feel inspired. In general when I read inspirational quotes, books or surround myself by motivational people I get inspired.  Continue reading

Style Bits & Bobs of M.E. Turns 1 Year Old: My 1st Blogiversary


, , , , , , , ,

First Blogiversary SM


I’m so happy today. Style Bits & Bobs turns 1 Year Old. It’s my blogiversary! Wow! A year ago I started Style Bits & Bobs of M.E. as a creative outlet. When I started my main goal was to share my creative side in terms of Style and DIY. This past January I decided to share more lifestyle posts with you. I am happy with how my blog has grown and excited to share more things with you.

This month I am introducing a series called 20 Something Series. I was inspired to start this series when I first came across Sam from Smart Twenties blog. She is amazing and we emailed back and forth about blogging. I want to share more of my experiences as a twenty something. Currently I am a late twenty something and I have learned a lot about this decade and about myself. It has been a quite interesting journey and I am happy to share it with you. I’m still nervous about coming out of my shell with my identity, but I will soon. Stay tuned!

Also, I want to share more of my creative side with you with more DIY projects (skin, hair and more) and soon actual styling posts in addition to my Polyvore style posts. Kendra from Closet Confections is amazing and her style is somewhat similar to mine. I contacted her earlier this year and she gave me some great feedback. I’m working on find ways to improve my photography. I’m excited, but nervous to put myself out there. I will shake this feeling and give it a go! If you have any suggestions let me know.

Thank you for all my subscribers old and new that have subscribed to me. I really appreciate it. This blog is a chance for me to share the things that I enjoy with you. I hope that you get some inspiration, feel happy and creative when you read my blog.

What type of posts are you looking forward to see?

Thank you for all of your support!

Fitness for Home Workouts


, , , , , , , , , , ,

Early this year I shared my tips on how to live a healthier lifestyle and now I want to share the fitness part of that post. For all of my people out there that like to workout at home this post is for you!

Here are My Favorite Fitness People to Watch and Apps to Use:

  • Nike Training Club:
    This is my favorite workout app. I have tried other workout apps, but this is my all-time favorite. It has different fitness levels and has workouts ranging from 15 minutes to 45 minute workouts. When I do these workouts I feel the burn. Also, some of their workouts (the 15 minute ones have all-star athletes like Gabby Douglas or Serena Williams). :-)
  • Fitness Blender:
    After discovering Nike Training Club I went to YouTube to find some fitness videos from fitness experts. Fitness Blender is a YouTube channel hosted by a married couple that are certified fitness experts that have workouts for all fitness levels. I like their videos because they are fun and when I do their workouts I feel like they are working out with me. If you check out their YouTube channel I’m sure you will find some workouts to fit your needs. There are over 200 videos on their YouTube Channel. This was the first YouTube fitness channel I came across. If you join their website, FitnessBlender you can mark your favorite videos.
  • HangTightwMarC:
    The next fitness YouTube channel I came across was HangTightwMarC. MarC is a fitness expert that has a lot of workout routines for different levels. I like her videos because she explains how to get started with a workout routine and she has an awesome personality. Plus she has more in information on her website, HangTightwMarC. She talks about health and shares the things she uses for her natural hair along with her varied workout videos.
  • Blogilates:
    Around the same time I came across HangTightwMarC was the time I came across Blogilates. Cassey is a fitness expert and every time I do her workouts I feel her energy. She has will push you to work out. She has a bubbly personality and shares healthy recipes along with her fitness videos. I like her videos because she has affordable easy healthy recipes and has different workouts to pick from. You can find more information on her website, Blogilates.
  • Thinking about Sworkit:
    Since Nike Training Club is the only fitness app on my phone I was curious to checkout other fitness apps. A few months ago I heard HeyFranHey talk about Sworkit on her YouTube Channel. She said that if you are a fan of Nike Training Club you should enjoy Sworkit. I have not checked it out yet, but I will soon.
  • Bonus: Walking and/or Running:
    I absolutely love walking. Walking is great exercise and it allows me to unwind. Running is another great exercise and I am looking forward to start running in the near future. Do you run, if so what tips do you have for beginner runners?  I will like to hear your tips. Share below.
