Cupcakes and Crafts

Hi there ^_^ I just wanted to share a few treats ♪

Firstly, I got a delivery of yummy red velvet cupcakes from my boyfriend for our 5th anniversary ♥♥

Mmmmm ♫

I also did a bit more crafting. I sewed beads onto some cookies I already made from felt and sewed a velvet (pin and hair) bow from a thrift store dress and made a cream bow pin.
I also ordered some cute cookie charms from Etsy to make hair clips (a la Angelic Pretty). 

 How does everything look? 

P.S. I was also thinking of doing a video room tour. Yay/nay?

Getting Crafty

Why yes, I am a crafty girl ♪
Haha, anyways, I recently made a sketchbook of all of the crafts I want to make (well, accessory wise). Most of theme are based of brand items I've seen (and can make much cheaper). 
I sort of want to have an artist's ally table at a convention ^_^
Here's what I've done in the last two days:

Some supplies (I had a bunch of other supplies but these were my favs)
Berry branches for 20 cents each! *A*

French ribbon and "pom pom lace" 

Onto the goodies (mostly brooches)~
I plan on buying cabachons and making different versions of the cookie/chocolate ones as well
Omnomnom biscuits <3

Yummy raspberries ♫


Cell phone straps


Dolly-kei/cult party hair clips

Matching pin
I plan on making many more once I get more supplies!
I can wait to wear these with scarves once the weather gets cooler

Birthday Bliss

Saturday the 3rd was my Birthday \(^_^)/ I spent it with my family. 

We went out to eat at a very nice French Bistro and enjoyed a chocolate x blood orange cake at home.

My Dad repainted my bike from scratched bubble gum pink to mint!

My new Fujifilm Instax 7s (since the stopped making old Polaroid film)

I need to practice on the exposure settings... :/

A lovely gold lapel pin from Alaska!

As far as personal shopping, I just bought (too much) mori clothing to try to build up my wardrobe. It was relatively cheap, but with conversion rates still ended up being $85... T_T

P.S. This is my 100th post!

September Lifestyle Ideas

September is my favorite month! Why because it's the beginning of Autumn and my birth month!

  • Load up on cheap socks (summer clearance) before it gets cold and experiments with layering
  • Give your outfits a slightly nerdy, school-esque look with a uniform ribbon
  • Go all-out nerdy with cute braids, large-rimmed glasses and drawn-on freckles!
  • Be on the lookout for flavors like pumpkin and apple cinnamon. My grocery store even carries pumpkin ice cream!
  • Make biscuit-themed accessories, like hair clips and brooches (I really want to do this)! 
  • Make a monthly/seasonal shadow box filled with seasonal items (like leaves, pine cones, acorns and dried flowers for autumn). Change the contents of the box as the season/month changes
  • Sew a cute sleeping mask 
  • If the weather permits, try to spend an entire day outside, or just go on a camping trip!
  • Spend time on a walk collecting acorns (I did this when I walked home from school last year) 
  • Add dark greens, burgundies or plaids into your wardrobe for a warmer look
This is the sleeping mask idea~

Monthly Challenge Theme: Socks & Tights

Sorry for the late post, September arrived so quickly!
From Cath's blog, I believe
Theme: Socks & Tights

Autumn is just around the corner (not where I live though, I can't remember the last non-three digit temperature day ;A;). Hopefully you're having better weather, so why not show off your collection of socks and tights for the upcoming cold weather? Do you like lacey ankle socks or patterned tights? Knit socks or loose socks? Try layering socks over colored/patterned tights, or let them peek out of open-toed shoes!
