Here's another fun studding project! I have always wanted to stud a pair of sneakers, and I thought my Converse kicks were a good choice. It's fairly easy, all you need is a pair of shoes, some studs and some nose pliers (I ordered my studs from studsandspikes.com).
- First, find a layout of how you would like to place your studs on the shoe. I went around all the hard places where I wouldn't be able to puncture a stud through.
- Next, you simply poke the studs through the fabric till they appear on the inside of the shoe.
- With the pliers, bend the points toward each other to create a flat surface.
You can really do this with any size studs or spikes. Try it yourself and have fun!

For my spring break I went to Florence, Italy. This was my second time in Italy but my first time in Florence. Florence is a beautiful city filled with art, amazing buildings, gardens and great food! If you really want to get a great look at Florence, go to the Duomo and climb to the very top, it’s a long way up but worth the sweat. Walking around the public squares is entertaining; there are tons of people and often music performers in the street. Just stop at Grom Gelateria to grab a cup or cone of gelato and explore the streets. I also went to Rome and Venice while I was in Italy. I spent two nights in Rome cause there is a lot of sightseeing and is impossible accomplish in a day. Rome is one of my favorite cities to visit, and seeing all the monuments again was just as exciting as the first time. I made sure to head over to the Trevi Fountain to toss my coin into the fountain; I definitely want to return to Rome someday. If you love shopping and fashion, make sure you hang around the Spanish Steps. There are so many designer stores, and is a great spot for some fashion sightseeing. Venice was fun for a day trip but you don’t need to spend a lot of time there. You can probably cover the whole city within Five to Six Hours. It may sound cheesy to do but take a Gondola ride; it’s nice tour around the city. If you haven’t travelled to Italy I suggest looking into it, it’s a destination must!
