I usually don't wear a lot of accessories in the winter time because it gets all tangled up in the wool and I mainly worry about staying warm :)

But now, that the weather is so beautiful, it's time to start accessorizing again. YAY!

And since I am absolutely in love with leather and beads at the moment, I came up with this super pretty slave bracelet tutorial.
