Is It Fall yet? Here we are October 7th and I think the weather is FINALLY starting to change here in Los Angeles. There’s something so wrong about wearing shorts in October, but when the iPhone weather app tells me it’s 94 degrees outside, it doesn’t leave me with many options. Thankfully, things seem to be cooling off which means I can start wearing my Fall fashions.
Pulling out the Fall gear means storing away the Summer swag. Although I’m happy for the change, there are a few things I’m sad to see go. One of them being my neon rhinestone wrap bracelet. Do you guys remember that DIY project? (If not click here) Definitely one of my favorite Summer DIY projects, but I think neon is more of a Summer trend. I wanted to find a way to rework this project for Fall. So using the same technique, I decided to trade neon rope for warm colored suedes like oxblood and navy. This update was the perfect transition for Fall.
I’m so excited that I’ll be in New Orleans next weekend making these very wrap bracelets as part of New Orleans Fashion Week Retail Shopping Day!!!
I hope all of my lovely readers in the Crescent City can join me next Saturday, October 13th from 11am to 1pm at Hattie Sparks for the DIY party of a lifetime…yes, lifetime! We’ll be shopping, crafting and just having an all around good ole time. It’s going to be an amazing afternoon kicking off an amazing week of fashion and creativity in the city of New Orleans.
There’s a special place in my heart for that city. For those of you who don’t know I wen to college in New Orleans and have so many wonderful memories of my time there. Be sure to follow me on Instagram (search @Glitter_N_Glue) to keep track of all the fun!
Hattie Sparks is located at 714 Adams Street NOLA 70118. DIY is from 11a-1p while supplies last
This weekend I packed up my Marc Jacobs beach bag with a few DIY supplies and headed to the beach for an afternoon of sand, sun and snow cones! The ladies at the Broke Girls Guide and I teamed up with LifeCrowd for a crafternoon of rhinestone wrap bracelet making at the Annenberg Beach House. Here are a few pic for those who missed the fun…
In my opinion, there’s was no better way to spend a Summer afternoon. I hope you’re now inspired to plan your own crafternoon. What are you waiting for? There’s plenty of time left to celebrate Summer. Call over a few friends and grab a few snacks ’cause it’s time to get crafty!
Thanks to everyone who came out to play.
In addition, check out LifeCrowd.com for tons of fun events happening in your area.
The event only cost $15 (to over materials). We’ll be making the neon ‘n rhinestone wrap bracelets, soaking up the sun and snacking on snow cones.
See ya there!!! xo

I have an exciting announcement to share with you all… I’M GETTING MARRIED! Ok that’s a joke seeing as how my Facebook relationship status seems to be permanently stuck on single, but if you walked into my DIY studio you would totally think I was getting hitched. The truth is I’m up to my elbows in wedding magazines collecting bridal inspiration for I DO DIY MONTH!
I get tons of emails from my Glitter ‘N Glue brides-to-be asking about Bridal DIY’s and I’m so happy to accommodate. I’ve partnered with Ruche Bridal and ever Wednesday in the month of June I will post a new DIY Bridal project. But never fear ladies who, like myself, believe that the movie 27 Dresses is bases on your life these projects are great for brides, bridesmaids AND super stylish girls alike. (C’mon I know I’m not the only one singing Beyonce’s Single Ladies at the top of my lungs, right?)
#iDoDIY month is sponsored by the Bridal Collection at Ruche
Today’s is Earth Day and in honor of our planet I figured I’d celebrate with an earth friendly DIY project. Today I teamed up with StyleCaster to create a Marni inspired necklace made with materials I collected from my trash can. Yes indeed! today we’re taking the term “Reduce, Reuse, recycle” to a whole new level. Click here to check out the entire project and remember to do something nice to the planet today… it’s the only one we have!
My neon obsession has blossomed into a full-blown addiction! I started off as just a social neon spray painter, first using it to color my neon satchel then my neon clutch, but somewhere along the way I lost control. Over the past few weeks I’ve collected the Krylon Flourescent Spray Paint in every color and I can’t stop painting! I’m spraying necklaces, shoes, sunglasses, bracelets and so on and so forth. Somebody call Dr. Drew because I’m in need of neon spray paint rehab!
It may have to apply a couple of coats but when I’d have to say this makeover was a huge success
