New Studio!

    So if you were wondering why I haven't posted many pieces of jewelry on Etsy?...I have a ton of earrings but its pretty time consuming to take the pictures. Who would have thought I'd find that the hardest part of the creative process? But I'm not being lazy by all means I remade all my earrings with sterling silver earwires.Per a suggestion by another Etsy member.
    And when I wasn't busy with that I was turning my basement into a mini studio. I'd prefer something cute in Bucktown. But this will do for now.  Oh and celebrating my child's 8th grade Graduation. Yay!..So there is a major overhaul at Chicago Diva On A Dime going on.  Cant wait to take pictures of my new studio. And of course take more pictures of my fabulous jewelry. Thanks for reading my Babble!

Next week more earrings on Etsy.

Well its been a crazy week. I've been sick and my son had a sprained ankle so I've been slipping on adding jewelry to my Etsy site. Not planned but it happens. Mostly because its so time consuming to take the pictures for my jewelry. .. Well I've bought more beads and also sterling silver ear wires. So more designs coming! ☆☆Just a note all earrings sold now via Etsy will be on Sterling silver earwires. ☆☆

Dieting isn't fun but I made this. So delish!

For those who don't know I've been dieting. Due to back pain I'm not working out and I'm gainin weight. Ugh!..So I've decided to eat healthy. I found this recipe on Pintrest. Which is now my addiction. When I can I cook the pins I find. This was so good I had to share.

Beauty Bargin #2! Yes Under $6!

First of all to those who don't know me. I'm a MAC addict! I love make-up. But I also love a Bargain. One of my favorite looks for a night out is a smokey eye. Usually I do this with shades of Grey. And no I don't mean the book;) Mmm Christian Grey. Anywho back to makeup. I purchased L'Oreal Studio Secrets in Blackened Smokes. Its a quad that has four shades of Grey. Its even numbered and there is a diagram on the back to help. Im pretty confident in my application skills but it was great help for a friend of mine who doesn't wear makeup.The quality of the make up was great. It was higher pigment then I'd expect from a drug store brand. The look was great. I can't believe it was only $5.97! I enclosed an after picture with liner and lashes added.
