The Only Accessory DIY Update You Need For Spring Summer 2016

Chains. It was all about chains in the Spring Summer 2016 season catwalk presentations! Big chains, chunky chains, gold chains, silver chains, tiny chains, there’s no size order so if you want to update your old wardrobe with an essential element for the next season, chains are what you need!

Seriously, remove the old bag strap and replace it with a chunky chain! You’ve seen big fashion names chained for SS16: Alexander Wang, Burberry, Calvin Klein, Dolce&Gabbana, Emilio Pucci, Marni, Miu Miu. You can also wrap your old bag or backpack in a chain-made harness, it will definitely be the next year’s arm candy for uber-fashionistas! And if handbags are not your accessory of choice, perhaps (chain) earrings will be more attractive?

The time of Christmas Wreaths have come and passed and yet I’m still talking about them. Could it be an effort to bring back those wonderful jolly days of decking the halls… and the doors?

Happy New Year 2016!

Winter finally found its way to us and the first snow is slowly covering everything with an immaculate white cover. All the mud, all the misery, all the blood and the debris, everything gets snowed in, away from sight. Not away from mind.

As snow decided to show up late at the annual party, so did I, fashionably ^_^. I will start 2016 by wishing you a wonderful, happy, peaceful new year and then I’ll round up stories I haven’t got around to publish this past month. Just like snow failed to show up for Christmas. Ha! Take that snow!

From Dior to Chanel and Marc Jacobs – every major fashion house wants a piece of the nails industry. Because – didn’t they say it on repeat? – nail art is dead. Long live the new posh nail art!

Ikea Hack: Handwritten DIY Custom Curtains In 30 Minutes!

Everyone who knows me, knows a capital thing about me: I can’t live without hacking – a dress into a skirt, a skirt into a dress, a tshirt into a bag, and so on and so forth.

My Home is filled with more or less artistic craft projects, things we care deeply about and have huge sentimental value to us. Pictures of our children or love letters penned on posters hanging on our white walls. This new DIY project is no different: an Ikea Hack of their white Teresia curtains into a pair of shabby ‘French curtains’ with a brush and black acrylic paint. If you feel reluctant to this, don’t!

4 Black Magic Sweaters To Warm Up This Season!

I’ve had my pink years and my purple years, now, as my minimalist fashion sense is controlling me, black and grey are definitely my wardrobe palette de coeur. Getting less colorful in my looks has left me with a lot of freedom when it comes to accessorizing. I love bold earrings, in funky colors. I love fancy belts and happy scarves, I love fancy nail art and unruly hairdos.

But I like my clothes on the monochromic side. So when I’m not wearing grey or a variation of greige, I’m definitely wearing black. From head to toes if I can, yes. If I wasn’t so clumsy to spill anything and everything on me, wearing black could’ve helped me be more wash-conscious!
