I wanted to try out the tracing thingy on Photoshop so I grabbed a random picture from Trixia S's Lookbook and traced it. It looks alright, I reckon, for a first try. Excuse my ugly signature :L

DIY- bows

I FINALY LEARNT HOW TO SEW BOWS! I thought it was going to be really complicated and hard but when I watched the tutorial and tried it out, it turned out to be really, really easy! Mum had a few fabric left and I wanted to try it out. I'm planning on making bows and selling them for a dollar or two so I can earn money and BUY MORE CLOTHES HEHEHE! As soon as I learnt how to do it, I made heaps more. It was so easy! It took me like 5 minutes? I don't know but I am definitely going to do heaps more.

This is the tutorial:

La jupe longue

Top- Cotton On
Belt- Supre
Maxi dress- Sister's

Just took some Lookbook photos today with Wendell. He came over to film a Someone Like You- by Adele parody. I wasn't planning on taking Lookbook photos, it was only supposed to be a costume! Anyways, check it out!

This is the serious one. It's a total fail! I didn't know some of the lyrics and it looks like I'm trying way too hard to lip-sync :-( I want to redo it again! But great editing and filming, right?

This one is the funny one, where we both did it. It was so much fun filming this! I think this is much better than the serious one lol.

Thrifting Haul

It's the end of the first week of the holidays and I got one more week till school starts again :-( Boo! My sister didn't go to uni today cos she was sick (Yeah, right!) so she took me shopping. We went to Dressmart but there was nothing good so I begged her to stop by Savemart (THE best thrift store that I know of). I encouraged her to try out thrifting but she's more of a "hype" person. She likes new and "in-style" things, while I, on the other hand, prefer second-hand and vintage stuff. When we arrived at the thrift store, I ran inside, jumping with excitement (I haven't thrifted in a while) and I automatically went to check for printed sheer blouses. I picked 5 beautiful ones but I only had 10 dollars in my pocket :-( SO I chose the blue sheer one. AND GUESS WHAT. THE TAG HAS MY NAME ON IT! THE EXACT SAME LETTERS! I just saw it when I got in the car lol! Then I checked for high-wasted shorts/jeans and I found this Lee 3/4 pants. I'm going to cut it and distress it later. I might even make a DIY video. Even though I only had 10 dollars in my pocket, I COULDN'T leave the blue sheer blouse or the high wasted pants behind! Thankfully, my sister was generous enough to pay for the rest! :-D

Thrifting is so much fun. If only I had heaps and heaps of money, I would have bought the rest of the blouses :-( I WANNA GO THRIFTING AGAIN!!!! I swear I can spend the whole day in a thrift store.

I spent less than 20 bucks!

Summer, where art thou?

(Everything DIY, shirt: Jayjays, shorts: JustJeans)

Yesterday I took some photos with the head wreath I made out of mum's flowers. I looked outside my window and I saw these beautiful flowers outside the garden and I just HAD to make a head wreath out of them! I haven't got the time and money to head down to Spotlight and buy plastic flowers and the materials needed for a proper head wreath. It's the fourth day of the holidays and it feels like it's going too fast! NOOOOOO! I am stuck at home, alone, cold, hungry and bored :-( I shall go and make breakfast then shower and do some more DIY!

Disney Princesses Photo Project


Disney Princesses Photo Project- Princess Tiana

This is the 4th photo of my Disney Princesses Photo Project. I haven't done any in a very long time, I've been really busy with school work and stuff that I've forgotten about the project. This time, I did Princess Tiana from Princess and the Frog. I TRIED to look like her but I am nowhere close, but oh well! Looks like I'm not dark enough. I just played around with the makeup and looked at her picture; she had purple eyeshadow and maroon-ish lips. My lips look pink but they're actually maroon in person. I also Photoshopped the eyes to make it look brighter. Oh and thank God my sister owns a tiara! I couldn't find her gloves :-( It would've looked better with the gloves but I couldn't find it :-(

I think I am going to do Snow White next or redo Pocahontas :-)
