If you have followed my blog for some time you may know that I started this blog as a creative outlet. I enjoy share bits of inspiration, pieces of my style and some DIYs. After sharing my last DIY I decided now is the time to share more of my other DIYs with you. I have some other DIYs up my sleeve – hair, skin and more accessories! :-)

Throughout my teenage years I have been at war with my hair and skin. My skin and hair suffered because I was always stressed out. Between juggling lab assignments (I’m a scientist), writing and have a bit of a social life, I was busy. Years later I changed my diet, starting exercising more and started experimenting making my own products for my skin and hair. Since I am a scientist and I like doing experiments, why not make my own products…hmm.

Let’s get started!

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

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

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!

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

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!
