Of pinterest projects and a personal challenge...

Guess what, I was looking at Merricks art (THE blog of blogs for sewing and other great DIY projects) and I found this great idea of trying to personally execute 6 of your favorite DIYs from pinterest...
I am choosing some of the simpler ones but hey, a girls gotta start someplace!!

So over the few coming weeks, I will try and put up posts of how I have fared on these projects...wish me luck ladies!

1. Flip flop refashion: What a great fun DIY this is:) and I have the perfect pair I want to play with!

2. Leopard nails: I think this is such a stylish and chic nail art tutorial - looks fairly simple...(hmm)

3. T shirt sleeve refashion: A great way to add a delicious touch of cuteness to your old T shirt or sweat shirt...can't think of any full sleeved shirt I want to try this on but lets see!

4. Painted heart bag: I am sure I will be doing this on a T shirt because this is too good an idea to be just done on a bag! :D

5. Repurpose small shirts into cardigans: This one is an absolute win-win if done right however I am sure mine will never turn out great but that's what DIY's are for...practice

6. And the last but not the least -A little re-organising- Another great DIY to help organize things around the house....I have a couple of drawers I want to target for sure!


Wish me luck & Happy week to all my readers!!!

Of black and white...OOTD

Hey there huns!
Quick post on my outfit of the day; I beg that you do not judge me by the lack of color in this look!!

I love the stylish simplicity of a black and white outfit - these two colors can be blended so nicely together that its amazing at times. Accessories in bold colors are fun to add on and with a cute pair of nice shoes, you are ready for a stylish day without putting too much effort into your look - perfect for those lazy mornings when you don't want to spend hours in front of the closet deciding on what to wear.

I am wearing my newest necklace + bracelet from my sale shopping spree and the peep toes are a recent purchase from Bata (they are super comfy and I have been wearing them almost everywhere!)

Hope you have a wonderful week ladies!
Stay beautiful and stay loved!
XXO!

Refashioning old shirts...

Hey there! 
Today's post is a quick semi-DIY one [semi since its not too hard and I am not going into details of how I did this no brainer refashion:)]

So I had this top that was mostly an impulse purchase from a brand called Kazo because they had a 60% off sale but whenever I tried wearing it, I just felt too frumpy in it...It was one of those things which you know is nice when its in your closet and you wonder why you don't wear it, but something is just not right when you put it on.(you know what I mean, don't ya?!)
Well, so obviously this item has been sitting at the back of my closet since a very long long time until today; my simple refashion consisted of just snipping off the long sleeves and the extra length; I hemmed the cut ends and added this pretty lace at the sleeve and that't it! My top (me thinks) looks much more wearable now and I will at least manage to get some use out of it!

Hope you lovelies are having an awesome weekend:) Stay happy and gorgeous!
XOX!!!

Of purlpe, polka and oxblood...

Hey dolls! 

As I mentioned in my last post, I have been shopping a lil crazily these past few days and one of the things I was waiting to buy  since looooong was oxblood jeans/leggings...and yes I found one that was perfect for me:)

Here is how I styled this piece...I thought it would be nice if paired with an unexpected color like purple and I am quite pleased with the overall look. The ruffles on the top add an interesting dimension to the look and just to make the outfit more a tad bit more interesting, I added this neon greenish-yellow necklace and clutch purse and TADA!!!

Hope you all had a lovely Sunday - stay gorgeous! kisses:*

Of floral prints and stars...

Hey dolls! How have you all been...? Hope the year is going great for you and that all you lovelies are getting plenty of reasons to celebrate life!

I have not been able to do much blogging lately but I think my 'really-busy' phase is over (phew!!), so hopefully I can spend some time do more posts:)

Just wanted to leave you with some pictures of this lovely flowery printed top that I picked up at a recent sale and this really cute star necklace that my hubs gave me recently...

Watch out for more posts!
Kisses..:*
