DIY Wrap Bracelet from Honestly WTF

Giving friendship bracelets is a tradition as old as, well, me. I remember learning how to make the twisty spiral ones and then the wide flat version sometime around the fourth grade. Us girls would sell them to one another for fifty cents or something ridiculous like that. Friendship bracelets have come a long way since then, and there are limitless versions to make yourself or purchase if you’re not the crafty type! Here are just a few of my favorites.

Inspired by Gene Kelly: Happy Birthday, Old Fave

Gift ideas inspired by Gene Kelly films

I grew up watching Gene Kelly movies. My mom would take my sister and I to the library to rent old musicals on VHS. (I know, old school.)

He was always our favorite. An effortless dancer. He sang too. And of course that smile! It didn’t hurt that my mother had done a stage show or two with him in the past and had wonderful stories to tell. That definitely added to our admiration of the classic screen star.

With a tip of the hat to the charming Irishman on his birthday (and boy could he wear a hat), here’s a few gifts inspired by some of my favorite Gene Kelly films.

1. Pelican Boots by Sperry Top-Sider
2. Woolrich John Rich & Bros. Heritage Officer Coat
3. The Sky Umbrella fends off rain with blue skies underneath!
4. Prints of Paris by fine art photographer Irene Suchocki
5. Renoir Straw Porkpie Hat
6. Lemon Ball Vintage Baseball
7. Ebbet’s Flanell vintage replica: 1940 Hollywood Stars Cap

From the classic barbershop brand made famous in the 50s, is Lucky Tiger’s new premium line of organic products. This kit includes full size bottles of everything a gent needs for a clean shave and handsome skin—face wash, moisturizer, liquid cream shave, and after shave.

And because classic men tend to like classic things, all four bottles come neatly packaged in a vintage-styled Lucky Tiger tin. Rarrrr…
