DIY BRANDY MELVILLE CHIYO BRALETTE

DIY Brandy Melville Chiyo Bralette

Hello and welcome to my blog!

So summer is coming up and the wetaher is getting super warm outside, so obviously those crop tops and racer-back tops are making their way out of the closet. Brandy Melville sell a really cute bralette, the Chiyo Bralette, for $19, so I thought I would make one myself, for as little as $5!!!

What you will need:

a brallete (from primark)
black thread
a needle
scissors
and some elastic

So let’s get started.

Start by cutting off the back of your brallete.
Cut as close to the seam as possible for a cleaner finish.

Then, measuring the elastic around your back, cut the elastic into strips.

I decided to cut three, rather than the original six, I just prefered the look of it. You can obviously do as many as you like.

Then just sow your strips of elastic across the back.

Once you have done that, you can cut two smaller sized elastic strips to be sewn on vertically.

If you want you could add some straps over the shoulders, but I prefered the strapless look.

And it’s so simple!! Now you can wear your super cheap and totally cute bralette!!

Sweater Weather

All I am is a man
I want the world in my hands
I hate the beach
But I stand
In California with my toes in the sand
Use the sleeves of my sweater
Let’s have an adventure
Head in the clouds but my gravity’s centered
Touch my neck and I’ll touch yours
You in those little high-waisted shorts, oh

She knows what I think about
And what I think about
One love, two mouths
One love, one house
No shirt, no blouse
Just us, you find out
Nothing that I wouldn’t wanna tell you about, no

‘Cause it’s too cold
For you here and now
So let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

And if I may just take your breath away
I don’t mind if there’s not much to say
Sometimes the silence guides our minds
So move to a place so far away
The goose bumps start to raise
The minute that my left hand meets your waist
And then I watch your face
Put my finger on your tongue
‘Cause you love to taste, yeah

These hearts adore
Everyone the other beats hardest for
Inside this place is warm
Outside it starts to pour

Coming down
One love, two mouths
One love, one house
No shirt, no blouse
Just us, you find out
Nothing that I wouldn’t wanna tell you about, no, no, no

[2x]
‘Cause it’s too cold
For you here and now
So let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

Whoa, whoa…
Whoa, whoa… whoa
Whoa, whoa… [2x]

‘Cause it’s too cold
For you here and now
So let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

It’s too cold
For you here and now
Let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

It’s too cold,
It’s too cold
The holes of my sweater…

DIY Perfume Display

 

Hello everybody,

Today I have a really simple DIY for all of your perfumes. This is so cute and you can totally customize to suit your own personal style. So lets get started….

image

What you will need:
A picture frame
Pictures
Scissors
Perfume

Taking your picture frame, I bought mine at IKEA, take out the picture that comes with it and set everything aside.

Taking the pictures that you printed out or may already have had, figure out which one you would like to have on display. I picked one that would go with my perfumes, which have apinkish theme going on.

Cut your picture to fit the frame if it already doesn’t.

It’s easiest if you put some tape to the back, to make sure it is completely secure and won’t budge.

Then, all you have to do is out your chosen picture back into the frame and put it all together.

Last of all, place your frame flat on a surface and then arrange your perfume on top.

DIY Notebooks #backtoschool

So I guess summer is officially over with school starting up again. So today I’m just going to show you two really easy but cute ways to make your boring refill pads or copies look cute and personal. So let’s get started…

Screen shot 2014-08-28 at 16.08.30

Taking you blank piece of paper, paint any colour or colours thatyou would like onto it. I used a light pink and blue to create and ombre effect for one. For the other, I placed the waterpaint colours in the corner and painted from there on outwards. Screen shot 2014-08-28 at 16.00.39

Once that has dried, you can leave it like so, or draw patterns and designs on it. Whatever you like. Make it your own. This way you can be sure that no one else will have the same copy as you. Screen shot 2014-08-28 at 16.01.45

Then all you will need to do is place it onto your copy with craft glue or Mod Podge. Paint a coat of glue onto the front part to seal in any design that you have created. Remember, this will not be perfect and air bubbles are completely normal…Screen shot 2014-08-28 at 16.01.27

Using old magazines that you don’t mind cutting up, cut rectangular pieces out that you can use as a label. Alternatively, you can use pieces of fabric or even make your own, as I have done with the colourful ones on the left hand side of the picture. 

Using your glue, stick these to your unique and personal copy and simply write your class or name on it. 

 

And voila! Now you have cute and colourful copies that you won’t mind using. 

Enjoy and Good Luck xx

Salt in the air, sand in my hair

Salt in the air, sand in my hair

Of course, the day the exams start, summer arrives. Because what’s more awesome than sitting in a stuffy exam room, while everyone else is soaking up the sun. Yeah maybe it’s not so awesome.
Luckily, I’m not stuck writing an exam. Pfewh….
Anyhoo, sunshine is the best excuse for a super cute outfit. And a super cute outfit is the perfect excuse for getting a Starbucks mango and passion fruit juice blend. So good and refreshing. 🌺🐬
I mean is it just me or is life better in a floppy sun hat and sandals?? With Starbucks in your hand.
And just remember: The tans will fade, but the memories will stay!
