DIY HANDCRAFTED BRACELET
And the love from Punk Sinatra continues. I just love it that they’re a one stop shop for studs and leather. You read it right, LEATHER! Over the past few months I was having a hard time in finding leather. Especially when you don’t know where to look. It’s a good thing Punk Sinatra is now selling faux leather. Love it! For today’s DIY I was inspired by the rawness of leather and the name plates I’ve been obsessing with. It’s very easy and you just need to follow 6 simple steps.
Faux Leather | Wax Cord | Name Plate | Cutter | Scissors | Ruler | Needle & Thread
1. Cut a narrow piece of leather. Mine was 0.5in by 5in. Also, cut two strands of wax cord about 10in long.
2. Slit both ends of the leather strip. Make sure that the slits are not that big and not that near from the end of the leather strip. See the red dot on the picture.
3. Sew on the name plate or any charm you want to put on the bracelet. Do whatever you want!
4. Insert the wax cords through both ends of the leather strip.
5. Knot the wax cords at both ends of the leather strip.
6. Knot the ends of both cords and apply on a thin layer of transparent nail polish on both tips of the knotted ends.
I was really inspired how cut leather can feel so raw yet finished. It’s very laid-back and very me. Also this bracelet is perfect for stacking. Now wasn’t that easy? It’s very simple and it’s a bracelet that you can wildly embellish. Have fun with it and be creative! I hope you get inspired! Thank you so much Punk Sinatra for sponsoring this post! Ciao!

It’s summer again! The cold weather is truly gone. Gone are the layering habits and in with the “less is more” quotation. Which means graphic t-shirts and tank-tops are set to be seen everywhere. I’m not a tank-top kind of guy. If I had guns I’d totally wear one, but I’m very lazy so no tank-tops for me. Anywho, if you don’t feel comfy in tank-tops wear graphic t-shirts and button downs. They’re very comfy and refreshing. Just like what I’m wearing here. A pastel button and khaki chino shorts are great items to pair with anything. They’re very versatile and perfect for summer! I suggest that you guys invest on these pieces because you could get a lot of use out of them. Reverting back to the outfit, I opted to wear sneakers because I wanted an urban feel to a very beach appropiate look. An unexpected twist to a classic combination. Also, the camo bag helped with the urban touch. What do you guys think? Leave a comment below.

Greetings from Baguio! It’s cold here but not as cold as it was a few weeks back. No matter what temperature it is, as long as I can’t bear the cold, it will always be a perfect excuse for me to layer up! Layering is very simple. You just need to know what combinations fit each other. The simplest way to do so is by color. Simply choose a base color and accent it with complementary ones to make the base pop. In my case, I opted to go very muted. I just wore a plain white t-shirt and everything else blue. Now the twist is, instead of adding another color I chose to wear something black to contrast the blue. And it worked flawlessly! What do you think? I didn’t know that a neutral color can actually be the pop of color you need. Very interesting right? Imagine hues of olive green in pants, a shirt and shoes and add a dash of black, it would be magnificent! The black will tone the outfit down. Interesting, no? Never ever be afraid to experiment with colors because you will never if you won’t try. Haha That’s all for now guys!
