Here's a post for all of you out there wanting and wishing you could do your own blog design but don't have Photoshop. Well GREAT NEWS. There just so happens to be a little service called . Rejoice!
I have been living in this house for over 5 years now and I have NEVER experienced what has been going on for the past week. I have a very aggressive robin attacking all of my windows (and my car). It has woken us up at 5am banging (and I mean REALLY hard) on the windows in every room. I don't know how it hasn't collapsed from a concussion.
Okay, I have absolutely no idea why I'm doing some beauty stuff on my blog, but here we go. Inspired by my last visit to Lush store I thought why I couldn't make all those natural beauty products by myself. I decided to start with the easiest one - coffee body scrub. Take some fresh coffee grounds, 2-3 spoonfuls will do. Add some olive oil and little bit honey and mix it all up. You can also add some salt or raw sugar and some essential oil for good aroma.
We interrupt this string of travel posts to bring you something that might actually be of interest. A long time ago, Dawn wrote a post about book clutches and I fancied the idea of making one myself. Fast forward to the time I visited Francfranc in Tokyo, I came across boxes that are made to resemble books and the idea of making a book clutch out of it hit me. Sourcing for the right materials itself took me a lot of time. I wanted a book clutch that resembles some of those fancy old bibles with book corners, a leather strap and clasp. Searching for the right clasp proved difficult and I had bought clasps from Singapore, Tokyo and finally found the right one in New York.
I tailored a ton of clothes. Once again, very simple, but it makes it so much more flattering to the body. Before/after:
There have been tons of clothing racks made out of plumbing parts, here's my little version of it. It is the easiest, most uncomplicated clothing rack imaginable, it is basically just a frame that leans against the wall. And surprisingly it turned out sturdier than I thought it would be, and is also really easy to deconstruct and move around. What you'll need: / 2 tubes of 2 meters in length / 2 tubes of 1 meter in length / 4 3 way joints for plumbing tubes / a roll of tape step one. put the long tubes against the wall in an inclined way. Mine are on the floor about 75cm away from the wall.
I love getting mail around the holidays and it always irks me to throw away the envelopes — I like seeing my name and address in other people’s handwriting. I can’t remember most of my past apartment addresses (shameful) so I thought it would be nice to keep pieces of other people’s envelopes to me as a historical record of where I’ve lived. Plus it’s fun to remember the friends that sent something (and where they lived when they did). All I needed was a whole punch and a metal ring, plus a scissors to cut envelope fragments.
In the last few years we saw ear cuffs getting more popular. They offer the chance to decorate the whole ear. This shape requires new solutions to fasten the earring to the ear.
Someone asked to show how I alter my clothes. I have to admit, I take the easy way out! I am sure there are more professional ways to do it, but I only plan to wear the dress one night and it was only $4!
