As a shopaholic, I can tell you I love to shop. I’m also cheap as hell and don’t like to pay excess money on pieces that are not worth as much. That goes for pieces, I won’t be using as much in the first place. I won’t paying $50 for a necklace that I’ll only wear on one occasion. I hope I’m not the only one. I find necklaces that are in the high prices and they don’t even look quality.

So I decided to open up a shop on etsy and sell jewelry pieces for a reasonable prices. I don’t have anything up yet because I want to have a substantial amount of pieces before I put them up.
I believe that the thought of carefully putting the pieces together would be nice. I want to put a nice touch to it. I want to also create custom pieces for people. They can create wonderful gifts.

The name came about when I was at work and I was trying to figure out what to name my shop. It was going to be CreateBrilliantly but I wasn’t sure. Me and my two of my coworkers were coming up with names. One of which has their own shop. Then one of them, the guy, came up with KarinaKouture and it just stuck with me. I like it. It’s different to me and it gives a personal touch because my name is in it. I want all my pieces to come from the heart like I said before. I’ll put my link up once the pieces are up so everyone could see.

cake pop galore

It’s only right that day 9 start off nicely. 

I’ve tried cake pops before but they never used to come out perfectly. Thanks to the 6th day, my cake pops come out perfectly round and delicious. I enjoyed decorating them. 

Just look at that decoration.

100 Happy Days – 1st & 2nd look

I first heard of this challenge a couple months ago from a snail mail friend. She told me that I should try it but I said that I’d forget and I don’t have time for it. I checked the website out though, and they asked a question that stumped one of my statements. They say on the website, “You don’t have time for this, right?” I can’t even catch up with the monthly challenges. *face palm*

My friend decided to just do it for herself. 

However, the other day, I decided that I have to actually start project life this year. The problem was that I never knew how to start it but the 100 happy days challenge is the best way in my mind. I would love to try it out. Start the challenge with me, I bet it’d be fun. 

You fill out a form and towards the end, they ask you about your motivation to participate, I said “project life and seems interesting”. 

Follow me on instagram as I document my 100 happy days


I will post them on here as well for those with no instagram. 🙂
