DIY Découpage Floral Bag - Honestly WTF When H&M asked us to DIY a boho-inspired item for their summer issue, découpage was the first thing that came to mind. Honestly, does it get any better than customizing a simple handbag with a brilliant floral print? However you create it, it’ll be satisfying to know that you’ve designed yourself a one of a kind bag! You’ll need:a handbagcotton fabric with a large floral patternpainter’s tapeMod Podgecraft paint2 small plastic dishes2 brushesscissors Start by taping off the edges and hardware of the handbag. Squeeze a dollop of colored craft paint into a small disposable container. Allow the first layer to dry completely. While the paint dries, carefully cut out a handful of flowers from the fabric. Arrange them onto the painted section of the bag. Remove the painter’s tape when the Mod Podge has dried clear and your floral handbag is complete! (all images by HonestlyWTF)

We were able to attend over a dozen fashion shows and even though it’s not even Fall yet, we’re excited for the Spring trends that we see rolling out. One of my favourite prints ever is the elegant French classic, Toile de Jouy, and it was used generously in the Ruffian Spring/Summer 2013 collection! Here’s our inspiration: runway photos from Style.com What you’ll need: - white base coat - konad nail stamping kit: an image plate (m71), stamper and scraper - blue konad special polish - nail polish remover - quick dry top coat Start with a few coats of your base colour and don’t worry if the coverage isn’t the greatest, it mostly gets covered anyway. As quickly as you can, grab the rubber stamper tool and stamp down onto the design on the plate. Top coat and you’re done!

Fashion Blog Hello! It’s Syl and Sam here again & we’re back with another #manicuremonday post for you to follow along with. We’re so excited to be participating in the LuLu*s Blog Stud Week & we’re kicking things off with this cute and edgy manicure. This look is easy to achieve but takes a bit of patience! Here’s the look we’re going for: What you’ll need: - A base colour - A top coat - “microbeads” (they can be purchased from eBay or Michaels Craft Store) - a toothpick Start with a couple coats of your base colour. Now you’re going to work on one nail at a time. Working very quickly, dip your toothpick in a tiny amount of nail polish and then touch the tip of your toothpick to a single microbead. The microbead should easily stick right to the end of your toothpick Take your microbead and stick it right down onto your wet topcoat. Continue placing beads one at a time in an alternating pattern onto your wet top coat! Then repeat all of the above steps, doing one nail at a time. And there you go!
