HOME AWAY FROM HOME

If you find that I'm not really blogging on here, its because I'm a) at work or b) bloggin' on my Tumblr.
Its quicker- lets be honest - and that's what I need when I work 7-day weeks and am just starting to organise things for the next Attitude beauty shoot....

WORKYTIME

To fill in the time at Tafe while waiting for heels to arrive I made Sally some simple black oxfords she can wear to work.

I know Sally LOVES tassels, so I made sure to make some tassels for the laces, and gimp the edges of the pattern pieces.

CHECK EM.

D.I.Y. MARIBU EARRINGS

Sally recently posted about the House of Holland Maribu earrings. We had a little chat about them and their amazingness as well as price tag.

I decided I could make them. Easy.

So here is the accompanying D.I.Y.


THINGS YOU'LL NEED:

Pair of earring backers
80cm of fine feather boa
Two large crystals (I used buttons and clipped the button backs off)
Square link gold coloured chain
Wire
Small pliers
Scissors
Tarzan Grip glue

Earring Backers

Fine Feather Boa


METHOD

1. First bend up the rounded dome of the earring backers (if they have one) and using pliers, open up a link in the chain and thread it through the small eye on the earring backer. Leave about 5-8 links in the chain to hang off the backer, this should be the right length.

Attached chain and opened up earring backer.

2. Cut two lengths of 40cm feather boa. Loop each one on itself twice and using a small piece of wire (about 10cm) wrap around the where the ends of the boa meet, to fix in place.

3. Open up the last link in the chain that is attached to the earring backer and hook onto the wound wire on the boa.

4. Clip off the button backs on the large crystals with pliers.

5. Put a reasonable dollop of Tarzan's Grip on the back of the crystal and press the earring backer into it. Leave to dry.


DONE!!

STRAWBERRY FIELDS

On Friday I went to check out a nearby Strawberry Farm where you can go and pick your own strawberries. 

It was a lovely day for it, and, best of all, you can eat as many as you want free of charge while you're picking. GREAT!

CORAL SALAD!

It's been a while since I've gotten dressed and felt excited and as though I'm wearing exactly what I feel like wearing. I had a long few months of wearing black on black, with not much time to really consider clothing as anything more than a tool to avoid nudity.
Today, however, was different. I really enjoyed clothing today, mostly due to my new favourite socks. :)
