Hi there! Thanks so much, Stephanie for having me guest post during her fabulous $0 Budget Month series! I'm Lia from Smart n Snazzy, where I focus mostly on DIY, fashion, beauty, and decor, but I also post about whatever strikes my fancy. I'm a wife and mother of two beautiful kids, and I work full time as a Data Analyst in Denver, Colorado.
I like to say that I have expensive taste but a limited budget. Having a family to help support doesn't really allow for us to buy what we desire, so we have to make do. I like to invest in classic pieces, and skimp on the trends. A lot of the time, I'll make pieces inspired by high-end designer items for only a fraction of the cost. And sometimes, I make things using what I've got on hand! Here are a few examples.
When I laid eyes on the beautiful Kate Spade City Lights Bracelet, I knew I had to have it. But its price tag is not anything I'd be willing to spend. So I made it instead. Here's my version, and here's the original post:
Inspired by this gorgeous Dannijo Studded Stingray Cuff Bracelet, I created one in a similar fashion to that of the City Lights bracelet. Click here for the original post:
Finally, and yes I know I was on a TOTAL bracelet kick, I saw the whimsical Anthropologie Earbuds Bracelet and was completely enamored with it! So I rounded up the supplies and made my own. Here's the original post:
A huge thank you once again to Stephanie for having me on Full of Great Ideas! Please stop by Smart n Snazzy and say hi!
