Display Your Gems

If you’re in need of a quick, easy and cheap way to decorate your room, put your jewelry on display! Firstly, it will instantly add a fun pop of color. Secondly, it’s a great way to remind yourself of the pieces that you own, rather than forgetting about that favorite statement necklace tucked away in a dusty drawer. By having your gems out in the open, you can visualize your options and quickly accessorize on your way out the door!

The painted flower plate (above) was a flea market find that now holds my bracelets and stud earrings. The blossom hook rack (below) is from Anthropologie, and I loved it so much that I now own two for my necklaces. I purchased the bodice earring holder (below) at a craft booth in high school, and it’s still the best way to keep all of my earrings from becoming a tangled mess. Finally, I also have a letter “A” hook from Anthropologie (not pictured) that holds a stack of colorful bangles and a straw fedora.

Pepperoni and Cheese Croissants

After making s’more croissants and now these, I am fully convinced that everything goes well when wrapped inside of a croissant roll. As a fan of easy recipes that still taste great, these yummy eats are at the top of my list!

Roll out Pillsbury crescent rolls. Add about five pieces of pepperoni and half of a string cheese to each. Roll them up and try to close the ends as much as possible. If not, you’ll wind up with melted cheese on a cooking sheet (not that I minded eating it off in the least). Follow the cooking instructions on the crescent roll package and you are good to go!

Spotted at UO Store on Tour

After a quick trip to Highwire Lounge, Sarah, Rebecca, Coco and I enjoyed an afternoon shopping trip at the Urban Outfitters Store on Tour. I picked up a super stylish leopard sweater and we were fortunate enough to be deemed “street stylish” by the UO team. Check out the tweet, loves!

Missing In Action

First and foremost, let me begin by saying that my blogging hiatus is completely inexcusable. This is the longest time I’ve gone without a post since I first began blogging in June 2010. (Note: I only began Glamazon Guide in January 2011; formerly, I used a Tumblr account.)

For all of you wondering why there has not been a new Glamazon Guide post in well over a month, the reasons are countless. Rather than bore you will all of them, I’ll highlight the top two: lack of time and lack of inspiration. Now, while you can’t help me with the first, I could certainly use your assistance in fixing the second.

Here’s how you can help. If there is a fashion, beauty or general lifestyle topic that you would be interested in reading about, please leave a comment with a suggestion. I’m hoping to draw inspiration from your passions.

Thanks for the help, and be on the look out for a new post soon!
