10 Minutes or Less: DIY Jeweled Eyeglass Case

Time: 10 minutes
Materials: eyeglass case, E-6000 glue, acrylic gems

Make this jeweled eyeglass case in less than 10 minutes!After getting my new glasses, I instantly starting thinking of ways to makeover the case they came in. That’s everyones first reaction, right? Since I’ve never been big on neutrals, I decided to add a splash of color with a few acrylic gems!

**PS– If you don’t have an eyeglass case, be sure to enter my giveaway to Bonlook.

Make this jeweled eyeglass case in less than 10 minutes!This project is so easy, you don’t really even need a step by step (it’s just glueing some gems on top of an eyeglass case, right?). I do recommend that you play around with the placement of your gems, especially if they’re different shapes, before glueing down. You can move them a few minutes after glueing down, but it’s not recommended since you any extra glue goop will be visible.

Once finished, set aside and let dry, ideally overnight.

DIY Wooden Memo Board

Time: 20 minutes
Materials: wooden panel, cord, hot glue gun, paint & brush (optional)

DIY Wooden Memo BoardGuys, if your desk is as cluttered as mine was before this project (and trust me, it was bad), then you need to make this wooden memo board asap. It took me 20 minutes to make (heck, probably even a little less than that), and my desk has never looked better. Well… except for that one time I covered it in sequins.

Color Me Friday: Black & White

Color Me Friday: Black & WhiteInstead of sharing my favorite links for the week, I thought I’d mix things up a bit and get color coded. And although my heart typically swoons for all things color, these black and white DIYS are not to be overlooked. Plus any of these projects can be completed over the weekend, while still leaving you time to binge on Netflix and popcorn. Seriously, what’s not to love about that?!

Hump Day Giveaway: Bonlook

Win a pair of glasses to Bonlook!Happy Wednesday! Even though it’s not quite the weekend, I thought it would be fun to celebrate today with a little giveaway to Bonlook! I recently got new glasses from them and am in love, so why not share the goodness?!

If I could have a jewelry box full of different prescriptions glasses I totally would, but they aren’t always affordable. I think that’s what initially drew me to Bonlook– the frames are under $100 and are completely modern and stylish. I’m wearing these frames, but they also carry men’s styles for all the gentlemen out there.
