New Year’s Eve

DSC_0401

 

This is the last post for 2014 – a year full of many emotions, unexpected situations, and valuable lessons. Since the beginning, I’ve been encouraging you to be more creative and always add something different, so here’s what I decided to wear on New Year’s Eve. What we should all have in mind is to have something to throw on before and after the party no matter where you are heading. It can be a cardigan, a jersey, a blazer, or even your favourite chunky sweater. You can always pull off any outfit, as long as it is chosen with taste.So you don’t need to spend thousands on it.

Don’t forget to enjoy yourselves! See you next year!

Welcome to my blog! This is the last Christmas DIY, which I’m both excited and upset about. Excited, because Christmas is just around the corner, and upset, because I had so much fun capturing these photos and inspiring you. Hope you’ve enjoyed them as much as I did. I’m definitely making more in the future! As for today’s DIY – I have a gingerbread biscuit recipe for you – something you can do with your whole family! Continue reading

DIY: Christmas Cards

DSC_0229-horzWelcome people! There are only 2 days left till Christmas! Perhaps most of you have already prepared gifts for your loving ones and are wondering what kind of cards to add so as to spice up your presents. I have a couple of ideas on how to make easy, not expensive, however, very gorgeous holiday cards. Good luck!

  • Christmas Bauble Card
    This one is quite simple – you choose 3 or more of your favourite holiday wrapping paper, cut circles (could be in various shapes as well) and stick them onto a cardboard (I used light blue). You can draw some strings as well.

  • Holiday Tree Card
    Firstly, draw a Christmas tree that is completely the same on both sides because we are going to cut it in the middle. Then fold in two and cut the cardboard the way I’ve shown in the pictures. After that fold at the three ends of the tree. Stick every part of the cardboard to another cardboard (diffeerent colour is advisable) except the actual tree. Now you can put/draw any decoration you want.

  • Snowman Card
    Draw two different sizes of circles on a pice of white paper. Cut them and glue them to the cardboard which you’ll be using for your card. Draw a smile, a nose, buttons (as you can see, I added blue beads instead of drawing them). For the scarf – I cut some ribbon and made it look like a scarf.

  • Holiday Dress Card
    This is the card I gave to my fashion design teacher and she really liked it!
    I used red wrapping paper, drew the skirt and the top, and sticked them to a green cardboard. Then I added a little bit of ribbon in the middle to make the dress look more life-like. I put some Christmas washi tape on the left. In order to make it look a little more festive, I added these sparkly jewels/beads. It’s pretty, isn’t it?

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

DSC_0090

Welcome back everyone! I haven’t posted an article about an outfit of mine recently, so I thought now is the perfect time to do so. As the holidays are fastly approaching and most of us are being impatient about what to wear during that time, I will share with you a few of my ideas on how to feel comfortable and look chic at the same time with your festive outfits (a very significant combination – and not quite easy to reach actually).

Designers during the years have slowly developed the idea of the diversity of the wardrobe. Instead of spending a big amount of money on clothes – as women in the past used to do – they bought the clothes and wore them the same way they were presented to them on the runways or in the shops – very different from today, isn’t it? I encourage you to be creative with the few pieces of clothing of yours, but still be able to make the right combinations. Hence, today’s clothes can be worn on a day when you’re just hanging out with friends, having a holiday lunch or a Christmas party – you might only need to change your shoes, bag and add or remove a few accessories, probably do something more to your make up as well, and you’re done! I’m wearing a simple white cotton shirt from Stradivarius, a fluffy sweater from Pull&Bear, skinny jeans from H&M, leather boots from Gotti, bagpack from Pink Woman and the bauble necklace I made. (Click here if you want to see how to make your own!) On my nails I have Essie’s ‘Watermelon’. Hope you enjoy the look!
