DIY Card

Hi all,

I have been watching a lot ofย YouTubeย videos lately ๐Ÿ™‚ Who gets sucked into watching them like me?? hehe I stumbled across this card makingย YouTubeย tutorial and it inspired me to make my own card ๐Ÿ™‚
It was my friend’s birthday coming up so I decided to make her a card ๐Ÿ™‚ She loves Paris and I thought this was a pretty nifty idea and who doesn’t like heart felt hand made cards ๐Ÿ™‚

What you will need :

Any Plain or colored cardboard

Cutting knife and board or scissors

Picture that you want to use

Ruler and pencil

Method:

What you need to do is really easy – I created a stencil of 3 different rectangles, use your ruler to create even rectangles and cut them out with your stanley knife or scissors.

DIY card

Place ย this stencil to trace around your preferred pictureย and then cut around your picture.

Then on colored paper/cardboard – arrange the picture so that the rectangles are on slight angles and voila ๐Ÿ™‚ Card done!

Happy Thursday everyone!

Lacey cream and black

Hi all,

Happy Australia Day for those who are in Australia ๐Ÿ™‚ The first public holiday of the year ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s great to have a sleep in and have a BBQ or just go shopping hehe ๐Ÿ™‚

This is what I tried on at Target – It’s a cream lace dress with black faux leather collar and I thought this will be perfect for work or casual too.

Lacey cream and black dress

I think the plan for today will be either to go out shopping or do some baking ๐Ÿ™‚ I have been youtubing a lot and found some great recipes there ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Monday everyone!

Zigzag nails

Hi all,

I saw this cute lightning nail tutorial on a blog and decided to use the same concept but change up the colors.

Zigzag nails

I used a purple pink nail polish as the base. To make the zig zags, all you need to use is scotch tape and use that to make your zigzag lines.

I used a lemon pastel color for the second zig zag line and this bright Sally Hansen cobalt blue as the end zig zag ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Thursday everyone ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

 

Colorful maxi

Hi all,

The weather has been lovely – increasingly hot – Summer is definitely here to stay for a while ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s the time to rock out some maxi dresses. I own a couple of different maxis. I think this one is my favourite though. With hues of green, purple, yellow white and blacks. The pattern is like ย lace with different lines.

I paired it with this cobalt cardigan ๐Ÿ™‚

On another note, I saw these cute ipad cases in Typo. If only I had an ipad ๐Ÿ™‚

So what do you all think of maxis? Love them or loathe them?

Tealy Summer

Hi all,

We have a scorcher of a day today – 39 degrees and we are also having the Australian Open ๐Ÿ™‚ It makes me want to play tennis and I spend lots of time watching tennis on tv ๐Ÿ™‚ Summer always makes me want to be really active and go jogging or play sports.
I’m wearing this colorful blocked top – I love the colors in it and these teal jeans with these thrifted sandals that I scored for 1 dollar ๐Ÿ™‚

Sandals

I got them from this market in Camberwell ๐Ÿ™‚ Markets are always full of surprises sometimes you find gems and it is always different every time you go ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope you are all having a lovely Thursday!

Blue peplum

Hi all,

Hope you are all having a happy weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ Mine was spent lazing around playing with my rabbits and going market shopping.
This is some blue peplum. I have tried other peplum tops but some weren’t that flattering but this one curves at the right places ๐Ÿ™‚

Blue peplum

Paired it with this blue pencil skirt and my jeweled sandals ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ Hurrah!

Correspondence club

Hi all,

I have been joining the correspondence club for the last couple of months and love the feeling of getting snail mail. One of my penpals was from Mexico and she sent me these lovely dove earrings that I can’t wait to wear. I also love reading about her culture and traditions.

This is what I sent out recently to my new penpal ๐Ÿ™‚
