Daily DIYs #1

Hello there…fancy seeing you here.  Uhm, I haven’t blogged for two weeks.  I suck at this, huh?  To be honest with you, I have been writing a story of my own, just a personal one, so I’ve been neglecting you, and I’m sorry!  I am not stopping or anything like that!

So I really, really love crafts.  Obviously.  And I have always been very confused how to show you guys what crafts I find around the internet if I don’t actually do them myself.  I decided I am going to (at the approximate beginning of each week) have seven crafts I find that are worth taking a look at!  Because I can’t do them all, it’s a great way to showcase what amazing ideas I’ve found from various blogs, pictures, and websites.  Each week will probably have a general theme, but some weeks may just have no theme at all.  Sound good?

Celebrity Style: Blair Waldorf’s Coats

One thing that I noticed while I was watching Gossip Girl…the amazing fashion!  I mentioned this in my GG post, and I am going to be doing a few Celeb Style posts on it!  For the first instalment  I have found four of Blair’s coats, and found either the exact ones, or very close matches.  I will probably do one of these for Serena too, so stay tuned for that!

DIY Ombre Speckled Shirt

Hey guys!  So I found a DIY a long, long time ago, and I don’t think I’ve ever showed you guys!  I am planning on doing it sometime, because it looks so good!  I thought I would share it with you now, with Christmas coming up, so maybe you could make it for presents!  They use hot pink with a t-shirt, but you could of course try it out with different colours, and a long sleeve shirt.  Maybe even a sweater?

 

Here’s a link to the tutorial! 

 

Thanks to blog.freepeople.com for the awesome tutorial!  I know I will be trying it out soon!  It seems super simple and easy, and you don’t have to spend a fortune on it.  Like I said, it seems like a great holiday gift idea, and I’m sure whoever you give it to will love it, because tee shirts are great gifts when you don’t know what to get somebody!

Talk to you soon!  Thanks for reading!  Let me know if you try this out…I’d love to hear what colour you used!

Bye!

 

PS, I know this isn’t a Countdown To Christmas post, but there’s only 10 days and two hours!!

SOFC Week 4: 5 Ways To Sport Turquoise- Wednesday

Hey guys!  So I have yet another way to sport some turquoise!  Of course, nail polish!  I recently bought a Essie Luxeffects polish in “Set In Stones” and paired it with another Essie shade in “Turquoise and Caicos”.  Sorry this is up so late, I have been sort of busy having a life!! (YAY! Finally!), and haven’t been able to get these posts up until close to midnight.  I hope that’s alright with you guys!  Tomorrow I will have a OOTD with turquoise in it.  But for now, enjoy my NOTD!!

 

 

Ta da!  A little crazy, but nice for once and a while! (:

 

It’s currently dark out right now, so here’s some pictures that other people have taken of the two polishes:

 

Pictures from here and here.

Turquoise and Caicos is one of my all time favourite polishes.  It is a two (or three) coater, that has some type of a jelly formula to it.  Click the second link above if you’d like to hear Temptalia’s review on it!  I would say it isn’t as neon as in the picture above, but it definitely isn’t a dull shade.  If you are looking for a staple turquoise shade, try this one!  It’s permanent!

As for the Set In Stones (from the luxeffects collection), it is an awesome polish too.  Of course it may not be for some people, but I think it is a nice thing to have because it is a great basic silver glitter.  There is tons of glitter in it, leaving quite a bit on your nail.  You would probably only need two coats to get an entire glitter nail.  It is so crazy it almost covers up the turquoise I paired it with.  I think it would look stunning with a silver polish like Revlon Silver Dollar under it.  I believe it is a permanent collection, and I bought mine at Wal Mart.  You can read my review on another polish from the Essie Luxeffects Collection here- Essie Shine Of Times.

I hope you enjoyed!  Thanks for reading!  I will talk to you guys soon!  Have a great night/morning!  Bye!
