TREND ALERT: Suede String Choker


Hello,

I'm not really one to jump on the bandwagon of trends (lol I kid!) But this suede string choker trend has my name written all over it. As a lover of Bardot tops/dresses, I can't think of a better way to accentuate and display my clavicle! Despite multiple efforts to find a decent UK seller, they've proven difficult to find. Fear not, dear readers. I've got you covered! I sourced a few styles and colours to fit everyday chic-ness.

P E R S P E X


Hello,

Literally since my package arrived, I patiently waited for the weekend to come just so I could rock these bad boys! I just love the sleek futuristic look. The very unique material just opens my mind up for so many different outfit textures to play with! (I'm thinking maybe fur next or very delicate hair-like wool?) Since I've finally had the perspex experience, it's only fitting I give an honest review!

PRO's: Sleek, gorgeous, literally breaks necks on the streets and loves the camera.

CON's: Can get sweaty and defo inspires new ways to conceal impefections.

Have a (hopefully) sunny week ahead!

DIY Bag




Hello,

Today I share a quick blog post on how I customised my bag to give a more playful look. I originally bought the bag from Forever 21 in Amsterdam, but as I already have quite a collection of serious/formal looking bags, I thought it would be fun to explore creativity and spice this one up. So here we go......



STEP 1: CLEAN THE BAG


As I'm going to stick things to the surface, it's important to make sure it's clean. I simply used a dry cloth to wipe the surface and get rid of any dust/residue.


STEP 2: IRON PATCH TO FABRIC


The ultimate goal is to stick the ice-cream patch to the bag. But as the patch has a slippery/waxy backing, this may prove difficult. Therefore, I ironed the patch to a random piece of black fabric (I used jersey) to make it easier to stick to the bag.


STEP 3: CUT OUT PATCH


I then used tailoring scissors (much easier to cut fabric with!) to cut the patch out of the fabric.


STEP 4: APPLY GLUE TO PATCH


And then the fun begins!! I used a hot glue gun to apply glue to the back of the patch.


STEP 5: STICK PATCH TO BAG


I then gently stuck the patch to the bag and smoothed it down.


STEP 6: MARK POSITION FOR CRYSTALS


Using a ruler and pencil, I (tried to) marked the position for the crystals. To be honest I tried to do this whilst watching some youtube vlogs and ultimately messed up the pattern - hence the random order!


STEP 7: STICK CRYSTALS TO BAG


Using  specialist adhesive and a tweezer, I stuck the Swarovski crystals to the bag.


STEP 8: ADD POM-POM BALL TO BAG


For an extra dose of fun, I attached a fur pom-pom ball to the side of the bag.

VOILA.....

Amsterdam 2016


Hello,

As I'm sure you can tell from the blog post title, I recently went on a city break to Amsterdam, Netherlands. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment and can't wait to go back again! I did all the touristy things like visiting the Van Gogh museum, Anne Frank House, shopping at Kalverstraat and Leidsestraat and also some clubbing. Anyhu I hope you enjoy the pics as much as I did!
