If you have read my most recent blog then you would know that I just re-did my room. As I said in the past blog, I did not have to buy anything!!! I mostly decorated with DIY’s made using stuff I already had. I made two big things. I made mason jar pen displays, and I made a knit hanging decor to go over my bed.

So first I will start with how to make this really simple hanging wall decor. I have seen this all over the place and I think they are so cute! I decided to make my own. All you need is sticks, yarn of your choice, and scissors.

I found the sticks straight out of my backyard. I looked for a medium length (about 15 inches) and somewhat straight stick. Once I found a few, I chose my favorite and washed it in my kitchen sink to get rid of the dirt and any possible bugs. 


I found this yarn from a previous project and thought it would be perfect. 

I started with my white yarn first. I cut a piece slightly longer than I wanted it. I figured I could always cut it shorter later. Once you have figured out your desired length, you can cut seven other pieces of the same length, giving you eight strings in total of the white yarn. After you have your strings, it’s time to tie them to the stick. Fold them in half and place them on top of the stick.

Then bring the loop around behind  the stick and pull the ends through. Cut more yarn and repeat this process until you fill up the stick. I am not doing a very good job of explaining so hopefully you can tell from the picture.

I wanted to use all white, but I ran out halfway through the stick. So, I used the gray and the magenta. Obviously, you can use whatever colors you want and there is so much you can do with this. Once you have filled it up, simply take any leftover string and tie a knot on either side so you can hang it one the wall.

This is how long mine was before I cut it. I recommend cutting and shaping it after you have hung it on the wall. My middle strand was white so it was easy to find. If all of your yarn is all the same color, just count until you get to the center and you have the same number of strings on both sides. Then, simply start from the outer string and cut at an angle until you get midway through your middle strand. Then do the same thing on the other side. Don’t worry if you don’t get it on the first try. It took me a couple of tries to get it the way I wanted it.

Overall, I am super happy with how it turned out and I hope you are too.


The next DIY are these two mason jars you could use to display your pens. You don’t just have to display your pens in them, that just happens to be what I did.  All you need is one or more mason jars, some cute or colorful pens or pencils, and some vase fillers or     “pebbles”. These are all things I had at home, but you could also find them for pretty cheap at a local craft store. 


The first step is to fill your mason jars with your vase filler or pebbles. I used these clear circular pebbles.


Depending on how big your jar is will affect how many pebbles you need to put in. You can test the height of the pebbles by putting in a pen and see if it reaches to the top or whatever height you want it to reach.


After you have placed all your pebbles in your jars, it is time to add the pens. I decided to go with all pastel pens and keep a theme. I used flair pens and stabilo pens.  Again, you can display whatever you want.

When you are placing the pens in the jar, try not to put them all in the same place. Do your best to spread them out, this is when they look best. This DIY was very self-explanatory and simple.


I know it was only two DIY’s, but these you are the big DIYs  I did for my room. Both of these DIYs are customizable, so there is a lot you can do with both of them. I hope you enjoy this blog and please leave your opinions in the comments below. Thank you so much for reading and I can’t wait to post again soon. -Suki <3

This Saturday I decided I wanted re-do my room!! I celebrate Christmas and it is my favorite holiday, so I go all out making my bedroom festive. I decorated so much this year and I had a ton of fun with it. After Christmas, I took down my decorations and I realized my room was a mess. It didn’t really have a theme and it just did not look good. I decided this weekend I would fix my room. I went with a pastel theme.


 I redecorated my desk and dresser, and changed out the pictures in my frames. The room looks so much better now and the best part is I didn’t have to buy anything! I decorated with a mix of DIY’s and stuff I already had.

Does the name Sugar Factory ring a bell? It is this amazing restaurant in NYC. They have huge “steaming” drinks. They have everything from crepes and French toast, to salads and burgers. Their food is great, but their dessert is even better. 


This is a picture of one of their amazing drinks. If you ever go you,  you absolutely have to get the berry watermelon one!!! It is by far the best. Don’t be tempted by others. It isn’t the prettiest drink, but it is the best one, I promise. I went this weekend for my friend’s birthday party. I got an apple pie crepe and fried mac and cheese. Another must if you go are the fried mac and cheese pops, literally the BEST thing EVER!!!!! So, all my friends and I are just hanging out and enjoying dinner when the waiter appears with a HUGE milkshake in her hand. “I have a surprise for you girls. Do any of you know who Dr.Drew is?”. None of us had any idea of who she was talking about. It turns out he’s a celebrity doctor. The server then goes on to explain that whenever a celebrity comes to the Sugar Factory, they give them a free milkshake. Dr.Drew, being a healthy doctor, turned it down. 


This is the tweet he posted of himself with the milkshake.

The waiter told him that since he didn’t want it, he could donate it. She then told him it was my friend’s  birthday and he donated it to us!!!


Sry, this is the same picture from above, but I couldn’t find any other good ones. After the amazing lunch, we walked around the Meatpacking Distrct a bit. I saw a Paige sign so I had to take a picture with it…


 I just got a pair of Adidas Superstars on Friday, so I wore them for the first time to the Sugar Factory. I was excited, so I took quite a few pictures of them.


I also painted my fingernails to match. I got the idea to do my nails from my “Mr.Kate A Hot Glue Gun Mess ” book. You guys should definitely check it out. It is really cute and I am super obsessed. 


The nails are called Dalmatian nails. I hope you like them as much as I do! Make sure to leave a comment on what you would like me to write about next. Thanks for reading and I will do my best to get another blog up soon.- Suki <3

I went SHOPPING!!!!!!! I LOVE shopping 🙂


 So when I was told I was going to the city to go to all my favorite stores with some friends, I flipped!!!! I had such an amazing time and I hope to do it again soon. The first store I went to was American Eagle. 


I got a pair of sunglasses and two  chokers.


I love these sunglasses because they are not completely circular.I like round glasses, but they just don’t look good on me. They also have a really cool looking reflective lense, which is the other reason I bought them.


The first choker I got from American Eagle was this crochet black choker. It reminds me of Coachella and summer.It is intricate, so it looks really pretty close up or far away.


The second choker I bought is connected to a necklace. I think the moon charm is SO pretty and I love the “rusty” gold look.


The next store I went to was Urban Outfitters!!!! The Urban was  three stories and it was SO much fun!


They were all set up for Valentines Day and it looked So So So So So So Cute.


The first thing I got was this thin beaded choker. It reminds me of summer in Hawaii. I got the black and white since it goes with everything.


This is the second thing I got from Urban Outfitters. It is a denim choker, but this is not the best picture of it. It wraps around your neck and then ties in a bow.


This is also something I have wanted for a long time, a Polaroid album. This one is super cute and it was not too expensive.I can’t wait to fill it with all my Polaroids.


The final thing I got from Urban Outfitters is this marble notebook.  I am OBSESSED with marble. I also love notebooks. I have about a million and I probably should not have bought another, but…. I got it to plan out BLOGS!!!!! While I was in Urban Outfitters, I couldn’t help but take some pictures. So here are a few of them.




After my spontaneous “photo shoot”, I went to Forever 21!



I got a sweatshirt and a hair massager!!!!


I have heard a lot about hit massagers, and they are supposed to stimulate hair growth. So far, I try to use it for about ten minutes a day. It feels amazing. After Forever 21, I had dinner. After dinner, we stopped at & Other Stories! It was on the way to my final destination, Brandy Melville. & Other Stories was the CUTEST store I went to ALL night! I took a ton of pictures. You may recongnize some of these pictures from my instagram.


After my short detour to & other stories I headed to Brandy Melville.


At Brandy I got a navy mini backpack and really cute dusty pink sweatshirt. Overall, I had and amazing expirence and I can’t wait to go back into the city. I hope you enjoyed my first blog and I look forward to writing more very soon.- Suki <3
