From junk to fabulous.

I never throw away old or broken jewellery ,and if am forced to ,i always remove any decorations like beads ,shells and even chain pieces,save them in a small box.The same case applies to belts and beaded sandals.

Are u all having an awesome weekend?Today’s DIY was inspired by a charm bracelet my friend wore yesterday.I did not take any photos ,sorry :-),but i couldn’t stop thinking about it ,i wanted it in my life,it was love at first sight.This feelings were too strong,something had to be done.

When i woke up today ,i had an idea,why not make  this bracelet that am in love with.

What i used.

  • Thin wire
  • Assorted beads
  • Shells
  • Old/Broken earrings
  • Buttons
  • Bottle(to wind the wire to a huge coil)
  • ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Method.

  • Cut the wire according to the length you want your coil to be.
  • Wind the wire on a bottle into a coil (i used a 300ml soda bottle).
  • Insert beads randomly (for the bracelet to be colorful and interesting) ,for the hanging beads, i used broken earrings and R’s from Richot brandy bottle.
  • Make sure you bend edges  so that the beads stay in place and not fall off.

How fun is that,you won’t have to spent any money,only 30 minutes of your time to turn your junk into a bracelet you can’t leave the house without.

Oversized obsessed

Happy New year ,i hope you all doing good.I feel like time is flying,just the other day it was Christmas and now things are back to normal,school and work.I never traveled during the festive season ,just chilled with friends and family.I took this photos during the weekend ,i was not feeling too well .Spending the whole day in bed sick is the worse thing ever,i had to get out of bed and try to be active,thanks to my boyfriend who helped me take this photos,he is quite good,ain’t he?

I’m obsessed with anything over sized especially sunglasses,pants and tops.One of my favorites is this cropped turquoise knit,awesome for sunny days and can be worn with everything ,over a body con dress ,high wasted pencil skirts and even shorts.

Lately i have been wearing my clothes a little baggy,sometimes it gets too hot and everything feels heavy, tight jeans do not help.

I was not too sure about this look until i wore my gladiators and stood in front of the mirror,i loved it.It was so much fun taking  the pictures and posing that i didn’t go back to bed,wore flats and joined my friends for a nature walk.
