Let me begin this by saying this post is spoiler-free! So, I don't watch Project Runway but when I heard about its spin-off dedicated to accessories, I knew I would have to tune in. This is a must-watch, not only if you make accessories but also if you are just a lover of accessories! The premiere episode had the contestants rummage through abandoned storage units to find pieces with which to create a necklace, belt and other accessory of their choice. These people were taking apart rat traps, couches, teddy bears! The most recent episode had the contestants choose a piece of jewelry by Swarovski (jealous!) then create shoes (shoes!!!) and another accessory inspired by their Swarovski piece. I wish I had half the skill set of any of these contestants... I can't use a sewing machine, much less make my own bag or shoes! Catch Project Accessory on Lifetime, Thursdays at 10pm.
OK, so this is kind of cheating since I've made it clear how much I love this color (see Friday Faves #9 and this treasury). But I have to mention it again because I finally got my mint accessory fix and must share!

I made a risky decision recently. This isn't the right time or place for me to go into details, but I will say that my decision was a good one as it has given me a new perspective on my own self-worth. More than that, it has shed some light on my friendships. I like to think of myself as a low-maintenance friend since I'm not one of those friends who needs constant attention, or even attention on a regular basis, because I know my real friends will be there for me when I really need it. So thank you, real friends. And you know you can count on me to be there for you next time.
