DIY Leather Necklace

Recently, I received an email offering a product for me to review along with a giveaway for my readers.  It was for a mature take, if you will, on the monthly beauty box.  And by mature I mean that it contains a sampling of items that might enhance one's love life.  Ok. Well. First of all, why can't I get an offer from one of the standard monthly beauty box subscriptions (yeah, Birchbox, I'm talking to you).  Secondly, MY MOTHER IN LAW reads this blog (hi!).  Thirdly, I post about kids, how I can't keep my coffee warm in the morning, and nostalgic things like chickflicks from the 80's.  I think a post reviewing _______ (see I can't even write it), may be a little out of left field.  Don't you?

So, let's get back to what we know and love, like a DIY necklace that is so easy, you can make it over breakfast!  One of my favorite morning reads is In Honor of Design.  Anna has some hot kickin style and a pethora of DIY ideas.  I made this leather fringed tiered necklace in about thirty minutes, over breakfast, not kidding, and wore them to work the same day.

Anna's necklaces, my inspiration (umm, yeah, I got really creative with mine - ha)

Amy you are funny and I love your necklace and the fact that you took the time to make it. By the time I get around to doing things, they go out of style. Admirably, dawn suitcase vignettes xo
