Wintery Inspiration

Even though it's hot and summer here in Australia, I follow a lot of blogs that are based in the Northern Hemisphere who are enjoying winter right now. So most of the photos that I have been viewing lately have been of people in jeans and blazers and boots. All this has been making me miss winter so much and wearing one of my billion scarves.

It's always that way with weather though, when we are in one season we miss its polar opposite and then when we finally get it we miss the other one again!

My days recently have just been me wearing shorts and simple shirts or singlets, very boring. So here are some of my favourite wintery pictures!

Arm Candy

Have been stacking my arms with a couple of bracelets today, I made the blue one with embroidery thread and a bracelet I bought from Diva for $5.


Needing help here, I want to get a bracelet like the gold one but only for a relatively cheap price, so if any of you know where I can get one let me know!!

Shiny and New

I have been having the worst trouble with Blogger at the moment so this post is a day late. Here are just a few pics of new shiny things I have aquired recently.

I got this vest from an op shop for $5, and then added the studs from an old belt I had.
New earrings from Bardot

Finally an awesome cuff that doesn't feel annoying on my arm from Diva

My boyfriend bought me this one from this awesome new jewellery shop called Lovisa

I have been looking everywhere for this bag, I couldn't order it online because Zara doesn't ship to Australia, and the Australian stores didn't have it, and those who post it on eBay just double the price, but......



I found this lookalike clutch at a store called Love Couture! I was so happy when I found it, plus it was a cheaper version too which is always good :)

All I want for Christmas...

Is lots of presents!! I love christmas so much, I love spending time with my family and having great food all day. Heres part of my Christmas list!














All of these things are available online on the Vans website, ebay and etsy. I have fallen in love with online shopping, but only for accessories, I'm not a big fan of clothes shopping online, I like being able to actually try the thing on and feel the fabric.


My camera is out of charge right now but I promise tomorrow a post about the things I've recently bought!

DIY Bracelets

I decided to get a bit creative these past two days and create a couple of bracelets, getting the ideas from the awesome website http://honestlywtf.com/

I have already planned my next few projects inspired by what I have seen on there!

I made a chevron bracelet with some embroidery thread, it took me about 4 hours and I was so mad at the end because I just needed the ties to be about another inch longer each so I could tie a double knot, so now I have to find a way to tie this thing so it won't fall off!
Inspired by Honestly...WTF I have been wanting to make this bracelet for so long now and I finally got all the stuff I needed from my local hardware store to make it. I love it!

Bling

Well I am finally free! School is over for me and real life can now begin. I have spent the last week relaxing with friends and trying to keep busy, its been marvellous :)

I've been shopping a couple of times and so I thought I would show you a couple of my new jewellery pieces.

Ring from Sportsgirl
Ring from Diva

My skull obsession will never cease with this cute bracelet

My dad bought me this one, a pretty butterfly clip for my hair

Actually made this one myself, buying the skulls off Etsy and the elastic string from a jewellery supply store.

Freaking awesome skeleton earrings from Dangerfield

On an unrelated topic I got a new bedspread, the black cushion has long furry hair on it just like the jackets I've been previously swooning over!



Finally, I got a new piercing the other day, my conch, I love it!



Enjoy the rest of your week!

DIY: Skeleton Leggings

I think this is my first DIY...woo!

Its ridiculously easy cos its pretty self explanatory, I copied it from a picture I found on tumblr

1. Get a pair of leggings (colour of your choice)

2. Get some chalk (I used pencil but it didnt show up too great)

3. Draw outline of skeleton face like in the pictures I have here (I couldn't be bothered doing each individual tooth so what i did was just draw a smiley face line and then cut teeth randomly above and below the line

THINGS TO REMEMBER

The holes will be bigger than you originally intend cos the stretchiness of the tights will just expand that way

Dont cut the holes too close together cos the fabric will pull away some threads and may make one massive hole you dont want

Brand New

Just posting some pictures of all the clothes and jewellery that I've purchased over the past few months. I can't be bothered typing out where I got each one from because I have to make a cake for my best friends birthday, so if you want to know just post a comment and I'll get back to you!
