Scarf Bag DIY
Hello Babes! I made a little scarf bag tonight, but I will warn you that it requires sewing and I am not very good at explaining sewing techniques. I hope to improve my sewing terminology soon. But until then just bear with me, please? I have been seeing these Furoshiki scarf bags, which I really love and I think are a great idea. However, I wanted to make something a little more permanent. So...
On Safari Looking for the Elephant of Surprise
Hello Dahlings! Monday is a tough day for me, even though I work on the weekends Monday still seems difficult to me. So, this post might not be up to par because I am feeling a bit blah. This outfit makes me feel like I am going on safari, I think it is the tan skirt with large dark buttons. This outfit is made up of a Smart Set top, a Joe Fresh skirt, Old Navy leggings, Blowfish shoes and a...
Sunday Flea Market Finds
Hello dahlings. As usual I went to the flea market with the hubster and my mother-in-law, it was pretty good week of finds even though I didn’t have much money in my pockets. This week I got lots of earrings which is something I normally don’t do. I got this costume jewelry ruby earrings, some cool cracked egg earrings, geometric earrings and whale tale earrings. I got a cocktail...
Greek Headband DIY
Hello Dahlings! I had been staring at this boring old headband for quite some time looking for something special to jazz it up a bit. Nothing interesting enough was coming to me. I mean, I could have covered it in feathers, or ribbons or sequins, but I really wanted something new for my collection of hair pieces. However, what I ended up doing was something very old instead. I decided to make...
Hello Dahlings. Today is my hubster’s 25th birthday, so I thought it would be an appropriate time to start introducing my little family of misfits. So, here is an outfit post introducing you to my hubster… Let’s start with the name. I call him my hubster because he is a real hipster and my husband, so I just kinda melted the words together. We have been together since we were...
Sunday Flea Market Finds
Hello Dahlings, I hope everyone had a marvelous weekend. I am feeling kind of lazy tonight, so I think this post is going to have to be a quickie. I got up early this morning; Hubster and I got giant coffees and went to the flea market. I don’t know what it is, maybe it is the summer or maybe just luck but I have been finding the most amazing jewelry the last few weeks at the market. Even...
Happy Birthday to my Beautiful Sistah
Today is my sistah K-jo’s 27thbirthday. I feel lucky to have such a beautiful sister as my only sibling. We haven’t always seen eye to eye as to be expected, but we’re older now and best friends. She’s a really neat person. She’s the talent in my family. She can play piano, guitar, flute and saxophone. She’s also an amazing artist, she can draw and paint. But...
Leather Feather, Feather Leather
Hello Dahlings! I hope everyone is having a splendid week and enjoying some lovely summer days. I have been super busy and really tired, but I did find some time for a little jewelry making. This week’s DIY is just my own spin on an old idea. I have seen a few people around the blogosphere wearing feather earrings made from leather. But most of the ones I have seen have just been kinda leaf...
Cloudy With a Chance of Elegance
Hello Dahlings! Okay, okay the title is lame, but my cup of coffee is gettin’ low and it was all I could think of. Sooo, moving on… It is a pretty gloomy Tuesday and it is sucking all the creative energy out of me. But I think I have something in mind for a DIY later in the week. So for now, I’ll just show y’all my beautiful new trench. I have never had a classic...
Another Sunday of Flea Market Finds
Happy Sunday everyone! I had a beautiful Sunday full of coffee, samosas, bff time and flea market finds. I found some amazing pieces this week, there was actually too much there this week so I had to leave so much behind. I think I must have been a crow in a past life because everything I picked up is so shiny. So, what I got here is a spider pin, a ship pin, an owl ring (a gift for my...
Great Dress, Bad Background
Hello Dahlings! First, I would like to thank everyone for all the love on my last DIY post. It really inspires me to keep DIY-ing my own jewelry and keep this little blog going. So, Thank You. Second, I took the photos for this post thinking I was lookin’ all cool, but looking at them now I kinda look ridiculous standing in heels in my tiny excuse for a yard. But it’s about the outfit...
Swirly Galaxy Ring DIY
Hello! I can’t believe how long it has been since I posted a proper DIY. I am so ashamed for letting it go this long. Thanks to everyone for sticking with me. So, I was thinking about how much I use clear nail polish when I make jewelry, which got me to thinking about what I could do with the rest of my nail polish. After trying a few different things that turned out terribly, I came up with...
Back to Our Regularly Scheduled Programming
Hello Dahlings. I am back from being away and returning to my regular schedule at work. I am hoping to catch up on my DIY posts shortly, but for now it’s just a quick outfit post. I was just out for a little walk with my hubster, and he snapped a few blurry photos (he’s trying, it’s very sweet) of me in the street. I am not sure this is the most flattering dress in the world,...
Neon Felt Rosettes
Hello! Sorry for my silence this week, but as I mentioned earlier I am super swamped. I dont even have time to drink my coffee and read my favorite blogs in the morning :( Also, I don’t have time to do a full DIY tutorial (I promise at least 2 next week), but I do have time to make a DIY suggestion. My suggestion is to make fabric rosettes! There are so many great tutorials for...
