As you know, I go through phases, last month it was florals,
now I am obsessed with pastels and all of the like. I keep finding all of these soft-hued
hairstyles- so cool and so fresh as shown in the February edition of MarieClaire China. I have been googling
pastel hair and highlights and am going to shop around for some DIY supplies to
work on for the weekend- cant wait!
If I had
the money the first thing I would do is go out and get this hairdo. Adore it-
not just the ombre pastel hair and not just the eye makeup, but his entire editorial
from the April issue of Elle Vietnam.
This is a great way for the everyday
woman to pull off this pastel trend that we saw so much of on the Spring
runways last year- so subtle. Remember last week when I posted these pastel pics?
bead stringing wire (I used .024” )- this is coated in nylon
which makes it sturdier than normal wire so it wont break as easily
jewelry spikes (I used mixed sizes and finishes)
metal hair comb
of wire (this should be enough, however rather safe than sorry so if you
think you need more for your comb, allow for some wastage).
first tooth on your comb, thread the wire in between the teeth and tie a
double knot, tightening each with your pliers so it is secure.Trim the short edge only, as the long
strand will be used for wrapping.
threading the spikes onto the wire.I thread three spikes and then wrapped around a tooth (you could
use more or less depending on the look you would like to achieve). Make
sure you wrap tightly and try not to allow any slack in the wire.Continue wrapping spikes around each
tooth until you have reached the other end on the comb.
another double knot, again tightening each with your pliers. Twist ends
together, trim and tuck into the spikes (so that the wires do not scratch

thank you it’s Friday.And I have
brought with me: my bike. As it has just
had a little makeover and I would like to show you the updates, I have been
slack about putting the post together. What I do have to show you: another
bike.Yes, a bike made completely of
food. A zest of lemon, a dash of olive oil and a heap of sugar are among the ingredients
which make up this strange compostable transportation tool.Have you ever heard of cowberries? Apparently
these are in there too, whatever they are. Photographer Fabian Öhrn and Art
Director Joakim Hedblad created this fixed gear bike entirely from food. Why?
Who knows. It’s cool though. Have an awesome weekend.
Tulips, herring and bicycles the epitome of the Dutch capital. Remember
yesterday you saw the cover of the county’s premier edition of Vogue? Now you
can see some of the editorial content done by fashion photographer Mark deGroot.His images depict both classic
and modern scenarios which make the country famous (excluding the red light
district and marijuana references).
things change, some stay the same. One thing that will never change: my
favorite country being the Netherlands.
And I just found out they are getting their own Vogue! Did you know that there is a Vogue in 19
different countries? Holland
may be the smallest of its counterpart edition holders but will always pack a
special punch in my book.
Enough of Winter 2011/12- as today is officially the first day of Spring, it seems appropriate to celebrate with these soft pastels, textures, and pouty coral lips.I wish I was in France or Spain or Sweden wearing these lovelies. I want to take a month off, travel to Europe and get off the grind for a while- damn, I wish I was loaded (why can’t I be loaded?). As much as I love NYC this time of year- my urge to get away is hard to tame- however my wallet keeping me here.My new goal for this year: pay my debts (this means NO MORE CLOTHES- ekk!) and save money for an incredible, once in a lifetime, amazing life altering adventure. Location yet to be determined.
