DIY Head Chain

It’s spring time! I’m ignoring the rain outside.

For the longest I’ve been watching these head chains on E bay. They look so nice and they give off some hippy look which is great for spring. I finally got around to making one.

I don’t think a tutorial is really needed because it’s self explanatory and I didn’t use any, but here is one anyway (I waste my time on the net searching for those kinds of things so you don’t have to x)).

You can make it as simple or elaborate as you’d like. Here is some inspiration…

Hope this inspires you to make one and that you’ll share your craft! 🙂

OOTD and My New HairDo

Hi everyone!
I know I’ve been away for a while but for a good reason. I’ll explain everything after Wednesday.

In the meantime, I thought I’d do a quick post on what I wore today and my new hair. 🙂

I just got these pants from New Yorker and I love them! They are perfect fot the summer, so light! And the pattern! I will definitely buy more, but in colour. I paired it with a lacey white H&M T-shirt. Since it is all black and white and I need colours in my life, I just added simple yellow flat shoes, small yellow earrings and a green bag. Work appropriate!

Now. My new hair! 🙂 Actually, it isn’t so new anyomore since I’ve had it for 2-3 weeks now. This is the second time I have it and I feel so good everytime I do! 🙂
These are box braides. I did them myself. Lots of work let me tell you, but it’s worth it! My hair is very thin and has absolutely no volume (grrr) so no wonder I like these braides because my hair looks thicker and if I want the wow effect I simply put it in the bun!
I got lots of compliments for it and I hope you like it too!

Have a nice day everyone!
See you after Wednesday! 🙂

DIY 3 in 1 Spiked Hair Elastic

5 minutes work! Tops! 🙂

What you need:

  • a hair elastic
  • jump rings
  • spikes (I used about 25 of them, but you’ll see what works for you)

Image

What I like about this is that I can wear it as a hair elastic, I can put it around the bun to give it an edgier look and I can wear it as a bracelet.

3 in 1! 😉

Ballerina bun

Ovaj put ćemo se posvetiti kosi.
Sigurno ste svi već čuli za balerina pundžu.

Sviđa mi se jer je jednostavna i brzo se napravi, a opet izgleda dovoljno elegantno da je možete nositi i za vjenčanja (namjeravam ovo ljeto :)).

Za nju treba samo doughnut iliti po naši krafna (lol), gumica za kosu i ukosnice (bobby pins).

Eh, sada. Malo ću skrenuti s teme. Što sam starija to pažljivije trošim novce. Mislim da je cilj shoppinga naći ono što želiš za što manje novaca. Ne kažem da uvijek mora biti jeftino i što jeftinije – to bolje. Na nekim stvarima ne treba se štediti, ali ako se može za manje novaca naći ista ili slična stvar – score!
(neki drugi put haul pa da vidite što mislim)

Da nastavimo.
H&M ima te doughnut-e po kojih 20kn. Možda vam ne zvuči puno (meni da), ali istvu stvar možete naći na E bay-u za 90 centi (otprilike 5.30kn). Ušteda skoro 15kn! Nije li onda bolje otići na kavu za to? Ako nemate Pay Pal račun ili vam se ne da čekati 3-4 tjedana da vam stigne na kućnu adresu, isto to možete naći u Kik-i za 8kn (tamo sam ja kupila svoju). Ušteda 12kn. Opet, rađe ću otići na kavu s frendicama za te novce.

Bonus: DIY 😉
Sve što treba jest: čarapa! Odrežite donji dio (prste) tako da sada imate otvor na obje strane i jednostavno je zavrnite dok ne izgleda kao krafna.

Pošto je ovo već stari trik, mislim da ne trebam raditi tutorial o tome, već evo link na stranicu koja ima to jako dobro objašnjeno i prikazano. Primjetite da postoje 3 načina kako napraviti pundžu. Ja još volim lagano natapirati kosu prije.

Koja je razlika između kupovne krafne i ove od čarape? S obje dobijete lijep rezultat, ali prednost kupovne je ta što u nju možete zabosti ukosnice tako da bolje drže kosu.

Rado bih čula i vas! Sviđa li se i vama ballerina bun? Što koristite od ovog navedenog?
