Jewellery Box

Every year for my mums birthday we buy her a box of ferrero rocher, this year I dediced to take the empty box and re-use it as a jewellery box as I have far to many earrings!

I dedcided to stick some rhinestones on the top because the box looked boring and plain, the center piece is an old broken earing and I also tied some lace around the front.

Thanks for reading! I hope you liked this post.
What do you think of my jewellery box?? Is there anything you like to re-use??

Roses are Red, Violets are Blue...

I thought I would do a valentine's themed post today as its valentine's day,  Secret life of a bio nerd has just posted a tutorial on how to make nylon flowers. There a great alternative to real flowers if like me you have hayfever, they look just as beautiful and last all year round.

I first saw my mums friends making these for a Thai restaurant when I was little and I've wanted to make these for years now but I've never had the supplies to make them, but I have finally found some floral tape and as soon as I can find my tights and some cheap dye I am going to make these asap!!

The women at the restaurant always used to make beautiful bouquets of Lilly's or orchids but I really want to make some pink roses!

Thanks for reading I hope you all had a great valentine's day!!

What did you do for valentines day??

What do you guys think of my new blog header?? I can't decide weather or not I like it, I'm quite tempted to change it again!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

All Studded Out

Studded shorts have become very popular and ever since I first saw them I knew I wanted a pair but I definitely wasn't willing to buy a pair as they can be very expensive.

When I started college I met Hanna-Lou :British Birdie, she has a very vintage style and she gets most of her clothes and jewellery from charity and vintage shops. She has inspired me to DIY more my clothes and she has tought me that charity shops aren't just of older people.

Hanna took me charity shop shopping (thrifting) for a pair of high waisted shorts/jeans but as our town isn't very reliable none of them were in my size!

In the January sales I went to H&M and found a pair of high waisted shorts that fir me perfectly for £10, so I bough them while I had the chance and then cut them up. They aren't completely finished yet but I did finish studding the pocked, so I thought I would share the images before I finish.

I took the studs from an old pair of shoes I never wore, but I also bought 100 studs from ebay and got 100 for free as they sent them to the wrong address

It took me forever to stud this pocket because I am a perfectionist I tried to make every stud as straight as possible (harder than it looks!) I gave up after I ran out of big studs so I spread them out more towards the bottom of the pickets.

I really want a pair of cross shorts like Singapore blogger, Miyake Wong is wearing in the image on the left.

It seems a lot of Singaporean bloggers have these, I want to know where they get them from!

Thanks for reading, I hope you liked this post! What do you think of my studding??

What do you think of Miyake's shorts??
