DIY fringe necklace





One more super Easy DIY post from me.
I been inspired by beautiful designer pieces. These necklaces are so beautiful but extremely pricey.  I am sure prices start from around 300 dollars.
To make my easy version I spend no more than £5.
As a base I used Primark necklace what was reduces to just £1. I found this fringe and ribbon in a local fabric shop, all was around £3. Unfortunately they didn't have the greatest colour selection in a shop, so I chose these two.


Process is like I said before, super easy. You just hand stitch two pieces, making sure it is the right length for your base necklace.
And now I just sewed necklace to the fringe.



To cover stitching I used this green ribbon.
And it is ready.

Cara Delevingne brows with Benefit Gimme Brow

Cara Delevingne
This girl is rocking every single Fashion Show, she seems fun and crazy. And there is a lot of admiration of her eyebrows, I heard them being called the "power brow", they are so popular! I wont be surprised if they have their own Twitter account...
Some people think they  are disgusting or thick or too dark, but personally, I love them.
While most of us girls haven't been blessed with these "caterpillars"  I suggest to create them
yourself.

 Benefit, Gimme brow, brow-volumising gel

This little thing is the most natural brow enhancer. Ever. It lasts all day long and it's easy to apply! After getting this product (thanks Kat ;-)  I didn't use any pencil, powder or gel, just the Gimme brow and it made my brows look really full.



INNOVATIVE BRUSH-ON FIBER GEL:
• Water resistant  
• Long-wearing 
• Natural-looking 
• Buildable
 
97% said brows looked fuller*
100% said it was smudge proof*
100% said it looked natural*
94% said results were long-wearing
 This is another amazing eye product from Benefit cosmetics.

BADgal liner waterproof, eye pencil
 Really love this liner, I  use it on my waterline and it's super smooth and easy to apply. It is a lot smoother and creamer than pencil and glides on my waterline and lasts all day. 

 The smudge sponge on the end is very good and perfect for smokey eyes look. Would defiantly recommend it to everyone.

 Peace!

Real Techniques Core Collection review






I had had my eye on this product for ages, I finally got it as a  Birthday present and was very happy.  
I really  use all four brushes daily and now I want all the other brushes in the collection.
These brushes are fantastic, super soft and feels great against your skin. It feels like the brushes magically can  pick up the right amount of product :-) I was never left with a stripe on my face.
I love the case which can be folded into a stand, very handy to have. 


The only slight problem I've had is that the brush for blush/powder is quite small but I`m getting used to it now.  I hope they will wash really well and wont  shred  at all.
The foundation brush I find a bit to small for applying foundation so I use it as a concealer brush. And it is good because  you can really get into the corner of your eyes and blend very nicley. It just makes my under-eye concealer look airbrushed.
The buffing brush makes application so easy and quick and  blends everything in so easily!  


For the price, you are not going to get better brushes. A sound investment for anyone looking for good make up tools.

Wall Art Stickers - Cut it out wall stickers

I am so happy there is an easy  method to turn plain walls into something you always want to look at. I think wall sticker art idea in general is just genius! It was really nice to discover a company what was created with its customers in mind.
I got to chose any wall art sticker  I wanted, and it was incredibly hard and took about an hour of browsing ! So after what seemed like forever I went for this one. It`s made by the company called Cut it out wall stickers, and every single wall sticker is  made to order. There is an amazing color selection to chose from and wall stickers look like they have been 'hand painted' blending very nice onto  walls.

This is my wall before.






































 That`s how wall sticker looked when I have  received it.This sticker is in size Large and it costs only £13.99.  It actually sticks not only to the walls but also to smooth surfaces like tiles, glass etc..





































I applied it to my wall like a pro.(after watching a quick tutorial) If you want to know how to do it the right way press here.
It was super easy and  took about 15 to 20 minutes.

And look at my wall now! How pretty is that?
I am super happy with the result and just cant stop starring at it today.







So lovely readers, what do you think?

Locksies Designer Dolls

I remember when growing up I loved playing with a paper dolls. Best thing about them was almost unlimited amount of clothes you could draw yourself. All because  I didn't have any skills or patience to sew dresses for my Barbies. Bad thing about paper dolls was they never lasted long..
That`s why  Locksies Designer Dolls are so good for a little girls who love dressing up they`re dolls. This doll will make every girl into little designer and it`s fun and easy and guaranteed to keep a variety of ages busy for hours.
It works like this: You can dress your doll by wrapping the material around her and locking it into the strip in her back with the stylus.
I took a few pictures of this easy process!

Instruction on the back of the box.
Whats inside the box (stickers and little belts are also includes, they just not on the photo)
Each 15cm designer doll comes with 3 pieces of fabric, 2 belts, shoes, accessories and stylus.
That`s how easy it is to make an outfit!
I think it is very important  to use your imagination and make pretty outfits yourself..

It’s a great way to use up those little bits and pieces of fabric or clothes  you’ve been saving, so it’s an economical toy too!

 
 I also got this cute little Fashion Refill Pack.
My daughter is very happy with her new doll.
And of course I had to make this.

Diy Projects: Top with sew on designs

One more little make over, one more boring top and one more attempt  to make it look elegant and simple. I am really trying to have my very personal clothes, something I would really enjoy wearing. I hope you like what I have done here.






































So I wanted to throw my old shoes away but I thought that buckles are rather nice, so they had to stay.
I cut buckles off  and got rid of them shoes.
I sew buckles to my top neckline. It was very easy and took just a few minutes.





































Buckles are sewn on both sides. Stitching is actually not very visible, which is what I wanted. And I filled the gap between two buckles with a simple black ribbon,
 Cute little bow:)



So lovely readers, what do you think?

They do:
Curate French food selections from the most typical products
Package them in a lovely box

I was send this box at St. Valentines, what a perfect timing!
I was very impressed by the beautiful packaging and I really enjoyed reading the Bonjour French Food minimagazine. Magazine is filled with information about French-based producers, news and some useful addresses.




And when you look inside you see all this! This is a February box, you can see previous boxes.here.
Delicious Almond and Curry Shortbread's. This is my first time tasting them and I loved them This is going to be something I am bringing home with me next time I`m going to France!. 
This is Venison Terrine. I ate this meat this bread and it was lovely. Very nice starter!
Very cool Hot Chocolate! And it is real and has no industrial powders, dark chocolate tasted so good when melted in a hot milk!
Seriously the best Chocolate Spread I ever had! Spread is enhanced with feuilletine, thin "dentelle" biscuit spread
And of course French onion soup. This is probably the world's best-known soup and very popular
starter. It is said that King Louis XV or XIV created the dish at a hunting lodge after returning from a hunt and finding the cupboard bare of much beyond some stale bread, onions and champagne. Though the story may be myth, the soup endures.

 Check out they`r website - http://www.bonjourfrenchfood.com/en/


HOW DOES BONJOUR FRENCH FOOD WORK?
Bonjour French Food’s online subscription makes it quick and easy for the client to sign up to its
service with just a few steps to complete on the website. Once subscribed, the client will receive —

between five and seven authentic French products.
WHO IS IT FOR?
The service provided by Paris-based Bonjour French Food is designed for anyone that appreciates
fine food and is based in Greater London; the company intends to branch out into the regions in due
course. It is particularly suited to French expatriates in London, who may be nostalgic for certain
products that are hard to find in the UK, but also to British enthusiasts for the French art de vivre
who wish to discover France’s culinary heritage.
It’s an ideal gift !
WHAT CAN I FIND IN MY BONJOUR FRENCH FOOD HAMPER?
The hampers are made up from a half savoury/half sweet selection of products that are 100%
French. The product choice is key to client satisfaction and the selection criteria are based on
authenticity, the French roots of the product offering and, above all, taste. For this reason, clients
receive produce from small, regional producers as well as the largest manufacturers such as
Comtesse du Barry (foie gras and delicatessen food) or Michel et Augustin (biscuits). Marlette is
another favourite of the Bonjour French Food team, thanks to its organic recipes for typically French
products such as “crêpe” batter and farmhouse bread.Moitié salée/ moitié sucrée, la sélection est
100% MADE IN France.
