DIY Elina Linardaki Inspired Sandals


I have been wanting a pair of the Leather Dizzy Parrot sandals by Elina Linardaki for quite some time now, so I decided to make my very own pair.  It has been forever since I’ve last done a ‘Mel Made‘, and with my blog’s 6th anniversary just around the corner, I thought it would be perfect!

Making my very own Elina Linardaki Sandals made me realize how much I love making things. When I first started my blog, it was mainly focused on DIYs, and making these sandals truly reminded me how much I missed it.

I plan to do more fun DIYs, so be sure to follow along to see what I make next.



Q&A With Bae: How Well We Know Each Other Before We Say ‘I Do’



Happy Monday everyone! I’m happy because the big day is FINALLY around the corner (eeek)!!!  I’m so nervous and excited at the same time.

I have been wanting to do a Q&A with George on how well we know each other before we say ‘I do’ – for a long time now, but wedding stuff has really taken up most of my time.  However, I recently discovered something new about my fiancé (I know right – you’d think I know everything about him after 14 years), and I literally looked at him and said, “ok, we are shooting this video right now. Start jotting down some questions.”

I mean, I am marrying this guy. 😉

I hope you enjoy this quick video I put together.

Don’t forget to give it a thumbs up, and subscribe to my channel. Oh, and I’ll be on my honeymoon next week, so be sure to follow me on Instagram (@melrodstyle) and snapchat: MELROD1206 to see where we’re headed!

The next time you see me, I’ll be a married woman! OMG!

Wedding Makeup Trial with my Nieces


With my wedding just months away, I decided it would be fun to do a video with my nieces. I decided to do a “wedding makeup trial” video.

It was so much fun but definitely leaving the experts to doing my hair and makeup for the big day. 😉

Hope you enjoy my video, and be sure to subscribe and give it a thumbs up.
