Tough Stuff

I may look like a girly girl on the outside, but deep down I’m a tough cookie with an attitude…at least that’s what my mom says. πŸ˜›





I bet you can’t guess what that bracelet is made up of … the INNER TUBE OF A BICYCLE WHEEL.

Yes, you heard me, it’s made from a bicycle wheel. Urban Lace Jewelry thought of a way to turn trash into something absolutely gorgeous. With a variety of designs and sizes to fit your personal style, you can promote eco-friendly stylish jewelry.

For those who don’t believe my claim…

Ways I am more of a “Tough Cookie”
1. I have perfected the evil eye that gives my students the shiver from head to toe.
2. I’ve killed countless of cockroaches.
3. I can hold my bladder for up to 9 hours straight (I know, probably not a healthy thing)
4. I can craft for 8 hours straight while withstanding the pain of paper cuts and hot glue burns.

Have I changed your opinion? πŸ™‚

What makes you tough?

  1. The evil eye was one of the first things I perfected as a preschool teacher…haha πŸ™‚ Love the bicycle wheel bracelet! It’s amazing how trash can be turned into jewelry so beautiful!

  2. That bracelet is gorgeous! I would’ve never guessed that it was made out of a bike tube! My hubby and I are big mountain bikers, so that would be cool to have. And I love that you’re tough on the inside and girly on the outside – fun combination! πŸ™‚

  3. Don’t we all have a wee bit of a Jekyll and Hyde within us πŸ˜› Digging the monochrome of this outfit Alex, and the wee bit of oomph the necklace gives to it πŸ˜€ E

  4. That vest is awesome! Adds the perfect amount of texture and interest. Those shoes are amazing too- need to find me a similar pair ;).

    Gorgeous as always!

  5. Lol…I have an “I’m a tough cookie” shirt that is pink, which describes me very well. I am NOT a tough cookie when it comes to hole punching though…had to make ~200 wedding invitations for a friend recently and my hand started hurting so bad I couldn’t hold a fork during dinner that night. πŸ™‚


    • Haha! I definitely know how you feel about hole punching. It really takes a toll on your hands! I think that the fact that you even attempted to make 200 invitations by hand makes you a “tough cookie” hands down! Lol
