DIY – braided hex nut bracelet

crafting is a new passion of mine and i seem to spend more and more time braiding hex nuts into bracelets and researching for new diy projects like these.
TIP: visit your local building centre and let yourself get inspired by all the items that can be used for making jewellery! also, if you want a DIY supplier that offers really everything you need, i would recommend ornamentea.
even though they have to ship from north carolina and you have to pay the shipping fee and taxes i put up with that because i can´t find the right stuff in my surrounding area.
here is one of my finished wristbands, find the instructions at honestlywtf!
have fun crafting away,

label check – wildfox couture.

one of the labels i really love is wildfox. it is an american vintage-inspired women´s knitwear brand, but they also offer swimwear and have a kid´s line! what i like about it is that the label was founded by two beautiful, young childhood girlfriends, emily faulstich and kimberly gordon.
“she is a native heart, she is all neon light, she is a love child; she is a WILDFOX.”
btw, i think their campaigns are amazing!

Top 10 Hipstamatic Pictures

i know that a lot of bloggers use instagram, but i am a big fan of hipstamatic and really love the outcome of most pictures! i want to show you my personal top 10 of photos taken with hipstamatic!
you count eleven? that´s because the last picture shows my beautiful friend as a little extra and the photo came out wonderful because of her and not hipstamatic.

le pliage – new collection

the box of joy

after seeing lots of pink, sweet boxes with goodies in it on other blogs, i had to research what this pink cute 
package is about. 
you can order a glossybox and it will be delivered to your door, filled with 5 luxury cosmetic products in 
smaller sizes. of course i had to order this box of happiness instantly and one week later it arrived – 
glossybox of january 2012! 
in my glossybox there was an oil for hair from kérastase, which is a brand i have been using for years now 
and am pretty happy that i got this oil “elixir ultime” – it also came in an appropriate size and you don´t have 
to use much, so i think this will last a while!
then there was a small “high impact” mascara by clinique – i normally use lancôme´s “doll eyes” mascara, but 
this one is also very, very good and has a perfect size for taking it with you in your handbag.
what you don´t see on the pictures below (sorry for the quality but my camera died just before taking these 
photos) is a kiehl´s “ultra facial moisturizer”. kiehls is also a brand i really like, but my skin is very sensitive 
and therefore i didn´t use it yet because i don´t really like switching brands when it comes to my skin – 
anyhow, i will try it and then report how it works for me!
the last two products are a lipbalm by janssen cosmeceutical, a brand which is totally new to me – but i like 
the taste of this lipbalm. normally i am using elizabeth arden´s “eight hour cream”, but this one is fine as well.
and then an orange flavoured body lotion by an (at least for me) unknown brand as well, which i haven´t 
tried out yet.
last i want to say, that the package is so sweet, i will save all of the boxes for storage – so i am really excited,
 the february box should arrive next week!

babyboo madness

“babyboo shoes” is a sidney based company which emblazes shoes, bras and corsets with thousands of rhinestones and sequines and fulfills every girls dream. they have their online store on facebook, you can buy all items here:
i think the bras are amazing and would definitely buy the black one or the stars and stripes corset and wear it to a theme party or perhaps underneath a sheer, black blouse.
which one would you get? 

isn´t this vintage baby just amazing?
