Hey guys welcome back to another "Blingz and Things." We have talked about
the present and the future but not about the past. As we all know that late 80's
and 90's trends has resurface as the new trends for 2015, such as the
windbreaks to the "Spice Girls" chunky high heels. We have also seen alot of the
late 80's 90's hip hop fashion recreating it's self. The saying in the fashion world
is "Trends always repeat it's self." So today we are going to be talking about the
past but in the present.
The tattoo chocker is a staple in teens and young adults fashion todays just as
well as it was in the 90's. The are versatile and and come in any color but the
black is mostly famous. Some tattoo chocker may have charms on them like a
ying/yang or a daisy. Even some of are favorite celebrities are walking around
in the chocker such as Rihanna to Vanessa Hudgas. Many adults find the chocker
useless and a waste of money if it's going to break. But in reality isn't some
accessories useless and a waste of money.
The Ying Yang were the hottest hit among the teens. They were popular best
friend necklaces or just a necklace for your self and rings. Yin Yang is the
balance of night and day bring together wholeness. The Ying Yang fashion
statement has taken over from halter tops ,nails,sunglasses.
Theses were every ones favorite when they're so many color and style you
Now these are my favorite I used to wear these all the time when I was little,
I had just about every color you could think of. Now they have reappear with
even most colors and style.
FLORAL MINNIE EARS
Hey guys welcome to another "Blingz and Things."It's finally Summer which is amazing,
and I know that means a lot of traveling for some of us. Since I living in sunny-side
California we are surround by fun things to do.
My favorite things to do is going to amusement parks , my favorite has to be
Disneyland. I recently went to Disneyland and California Adventure and I
didn't want to wear my regular Minnie Mouse ears. So I decided to make my
own with flowers.for our first set of DIY ears, we decided to let summer be
the inspiration and do floral Minnie ears. Check out the tutorial below:
Hot glue gun ( Please have an Adult to help if needed)
Lots of Fake flowers(if using small flowers)
(Fair warning this project does require a lot of glue sticks and patients.
It took me 5 hours to finish.)
Start of by tracing two circle equal sizes on your cardboard
and cut it
Draw a half moon at the bottom of your ears and cut it off
Start unrolling your cotton balls apart and sit them to the side
Fold your cardboard ears in your felt and glue it to together and leave room to
stuff your ears with your cotton balls

CREATE WITH LOOM BANDS
Hey guys welcome back to another "Blingz and Things" article.
Let me say that little girl is pro at making them . You may think that the loom bands are for pre-teens and little kids. But once you add your bands to your outfits it adds a burst of fun. Try them they are so cool. I find myself killing time making the bracelets, and other things with them. Some people have went as far as making clothing.
So jump on the Loom Band Wagon and get to having fun!!!!
CLEAN & SIMPLE
POP OF COLOR
Hey guys, I'm back with another article and this time it's SUMMER !! Yes I love summer, going to the beach and just having fun.
Since its summer every girl has to have that perfect outfit that they spend hours looking and
trying on things. But
if you don't have any accessories that matches your outfit well, I have the perfect answer for any girl. Just add a pop of color it doesn't have to match your outfit at all. But it does have to kinda coordinate with your outfit. For example, let's say... if you wear a white top with some blue pants, you add some pink or green accessories. It doesn't matter what colors you wear, as long as, it makes you happy and fashionable. So until next time have an amazing summer ...
Summer is right around the corner. That means no school, hot days and of course all the great fashion and flair. There is great headgear for the summer for hair styles you want to show off and for those bad hair days. For anyone who knows me, knows I love my hats and headbands; girls can never go wrong these in her closet.

MEET A "BLING BLING" DESIGNER (August 2013)
I want to introduce you to one of “My Very Own - Personal Jewelry Designer, Mr. Darrel Roach”. He is an amazing artist. Be on the lookout great things are coming soon.
Darrell Gene Roach
As a child he began to explore his artistic talents while participating in art projects with his mother Janet Roach. His first memorable work was a painting that he and his mother completed: a representation of the tree of knowledge and the sun, with an illustration of his mother holding him up to observe the glorious objects of the world. As he progressed into adulthood, finding great disappointment in his ability to express himself within the traditional business world, he became a full-time artist. He reached a career boost as the media and celebrities soon came to highly regard his work.
As an artist, Roach has been able to see his work transform from raw, cut-up bed linens into expensive wall treatments in some of the wealthiest homes across the United States. Likewise, his jewelry-making pursuit, which spawned from “an investment of $7.50 and a roll of copper wire,” turned him into a well-respected designer brand which has strutted down numerous red carpets and been showcased on iconic people such as Suzanne Taylor to chart-topping performers Rihanna and Beyoncè Knowles Carter.
Since Roach's rise to renown, his work has been featured in top fashion magazines across the globe, such as Vogue Italy, Elle Mexico, Fashion Magazine Canada, Zink, Cosmo and Glitterati. Despite his rise and the complexities that accompany it, his view on his career has retained the raw simplicity of its beginning. Roach says, “I love making things that I like. I am just blessed that many other people have appreciated my work. So in my eyes, I am just as I was when I began: an AMERICAN ARTIST.”
