Decadent Crystal Necklace | Fall For DIY

One of my favourite things about visiting the Museum was the gum ball machine in the shop - except it didn’t give out gumballs, it gave out crystals! I’ve always had a love of crystals, gems, minerals and all those beautiful things that nature has created. So this DIY immediately caught my eye - and then I saw the part that said ‘no tools required’ and I was hooked! There are lots of shops on etsy selling crystals. My favourites are amethyst, pink druzy and carnelian. Layer them up or wear a single pendant on a long chain.

Zipper Book Clutch | See Kate Sew

I’m loving on this amazing sewing project! What a cool way to upcycle an old and loved book (or a vintage book with a cool spine!). And to my pleasure, this project does not involve any sewing! That’s right, no sewing, just some glueing with some super strong E6000. Just make sure you use that glue in a well ventilated area to avoid headaches!

DIY Rope Bag | Style Me Pretty

I should have a new regular post called ‘can you work out how this was made?’! This tote bag is made of rope that is sew around and around in a circle. I imagine that once you start building up the sides of the bag it might get a little tricky, but you’ll end up with a super tough bag that’s perfect for groceries, clothes, library books, etc and that you can chuck in the machine to wash. If anyone attempts this I would love to know how it works out! (also this would look awesome using neon rope!)

Floral Vans | Always Rooney

I would never have thought to use iron on transfers on a pair of Vans - but they look amazing! The perfect ‘Summer shoes’ to slip on and get going in. As soon as I saw these I had the perfect floral images in mind to make my own pair, but all you need to do is either google image search 'floral pattern’ or have a search on Pinterest.

Tassel Dress | A Beautiful Mess

OK so maybe I’m a little obsessed with tassels at the moment! I just adore this dress, it’s so fun and colourful and Summery! And even better you can make the little tassels whatever colour you want so you can go multicoloured as above or get them to coordinate with your dress. And don’t think you have to go with a plain colour for this to work - it would look super cute with a bright floral pattern!

Halo Braid | Fashion Magazine

Last Monday, in a fit of frustration, I cut my hair short. I don’t regret it because it actually looks pretty good (though I would not suggest cutting your own hair to anyone - mine is quite wavy which makes the choppy look work!). But then I find a ton of gorgeous braids on the internet. Of course! But that doesn’t mean I can’t share these looks with you, my fab reader. If you’re doing something special this weekend then this might be a great Spring look.

Heart Print Jeans | My Little Secrets

I’m not sure why but something about printed jeans speaks to my soul. They’re fun and easy to style. But they can also be a lot more expensive than regular jeans and often times they make them in weird cuts. Using a cheapo/second hand/old pair you already have, you can get the print in whatever colour, size, shape you want and these heart print jeans are just too cute to pass up!
