DIY: Box Braid Necklace

I remember years ago in day camp when I would play with lanyard all day and make hundreds of bracelets, learning new stitches was always so fun :) This DIY totally brought back memories... Thanks again to honestlywtf! Inspired by Phillip Lim's Box Braid Collar Necklace:

 What you'll need: 12 yards of micro fiber faux suede (Erica highly recommends using this because it's super soft, flexible and easy to work with) 4 rubber bands and an assortment of small, medium and large washers.

I love it! Such a fun project to work on, and easy too!

Remember it will be saved in the DIY: Projects page of Dragon Fruit.

Going away for the weekend, again! Off to the island of Madeira ;)
Looking foward to some serious sunshineee.

(This is why I need an iphone, so I can post while on adventures!)
Hope you all have fabulous weekends <3

Featuring: Quinoa

Quinoa is a biological bakery, cafe and gourmet grocery store in the heart of Chiado, Lisbon. The building is over 100 years old and the atmosphere inside is nothing short of comfortable. Quinoa's mission is to serve delicious, light and healthy food such as sandwiches, salads and soups - with the occassional Portuguese twist. While I was there last weekend I got a delicious sandwich with lox and cream cheese, while a friend of mine got a bagel with brie, honey and nuts! So simple yet sooo good. And we could not leave without dessert...

lemon meringue
chocolate cake with a hint of PORT VHINO for extra sweetness ;) 
gourmet groceries including jams, teas, olive oils, cookies... 

This is the perfect place to go for a meal, sweet treat or to find some new groceries. The staff is incredibly friendly and the atmosphere is incredibly relaxing. Don't forget that QUINOA will be saved in the where to eat page of dragon fruit! :)
