How to make fake embroidered patches

Have you ever bought a pair of shoes that you don’t wear? My childhood trauma of never being able to buy shoes back home- I had huge feet that they didn’t stock sizes for (and had to shop overseas)- is making me overcompensate by being a total shoe fiend now. I have an entire cupboard of… Read more »

Top Tuesday: 10 best statement jewelry

To post or not to post. That is the question. I once read that Pete Cashmore posted up to 6 times a day when he first started Mashable. So obviously I had to 1 up him and post SEVEN times when I rebooted Hapiness, Wherever. Of course, that didn’t last 😛 It dwindled, but posting… Read more »

Round-up: Best jewellery dish DIYs

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Begging notice: I only have 2 followers at the moment, so any new ones would be loved to death! Recently, I re-discovered my cheese obsession. Not the best choice when trying to lose weight. However, I did read that eating cheese and butter actually HELPS weight loss because they’re so… Read more »

Top Tuesday: Best Spray Paint DIYs

I think spray paint is an amazing addition to the cupboard of any DIY-er/ crafter. It really gives a piece more oomph and makes it look more upmarket. And it’s so versatile! Unfortunately, it doesn’t make sense to get it if you only have 1 project to make so I thought a list of 3… Read more »

  • Thrifty Thursday: old earring make-over

    Way back in 2014, I rode the tassel trend and decided to make some shell & tassel earrings. Although I was generally satisfied with the piece, I have yet to wear them. And it’s been a year! So I decided it was time to give them an update. This is what they used to look… Read more »

  • DIY: how to make a heart & butterfly charm necklace

    Follow my blog with Bloglovin Earlier today, I just wrote about how much I like statement jewellery so it’s a little ironic that my next tutorial is for a dainty charm-style necklace. Well, unfortunately, my besties have very different styles from me and when I was thinking up graduation gifts for them, I had to… Read more »

  • 5 min DIY: how to punk up stud earrings

    Being a fan of statement jewellery, I used to dislike stud earrings. Too… discreet I thought. But recently, I’ve taken another look at them. They’re actually very versatile! By switching the back of the stud, the same pair of earrings looks totally different. Take 1: normal stud earring Take 2: the same earring but with… Read more »

  • Round-up: Best Shoe/Sandal DIY tutorials

    Today, I was planning to do a shoe DIY. Unfortunately, that plan didn’t come to fruition due to my decision to dunk the E6000 (post about that coming soon). To satisfy my shoe longings, I decided to do a web round-up of the best shoe/sandal DIYs instead 🙂 You know what the weird thing is?… Read more »

  • No tools DIY: bling bling clutch

    I’m truly in 2 minds about this DIY… to be honest, I’m not sure it’s good enough to be featured as a tutorial!! In fact, looking at the photo below, the original might even look better than the DIY-ed one. Oh dear! But, that’s only in the photos. In reality, the bling version is definitely… Read more »

  • Upcycling DIY: what to do with old boxes

    Have you ever tried TWG Tea? If not, you should. It’s really good! The  tea is amazingly fragrant and the leaves are lovely. I had a Green tea blend with bits of purple flower in it. Yuuuum. Luckily for me, 1 of my Aunts is a tea-o-phile (tea connoisseur?) and fond of me, so she… Read more »

  • Pandora inspired: Ibiza accessories

    This year is an exciting year: 3 of my besties got married! 🙂 To celebrate, we went to Ibiza in July for a hen party. Can you believe it was my first time in Ibiza? I’d always thought I wasn’t an “Ibiza type of girl” (whatever that means :P) but I actually really, really, reeeaallly… Read more »

  • Top Tuesday: Best No Sew DIY tutorials

    I hate, hate, hate using a sewing machine. From what I remember of my Home Economics classes, most of my time was spent trying to change the stupid needle. (Now if the needle changing was automatic, I wouldn’t mind them! Although, who knows, after so many years, maybe they are?!) Not to mention the fact that… Read more »

  • Erickson Beamon Rose Garden necklace inspired: 5 min, no tools earrings

    A couple of years ago, the Erickson Beamon Rose Garden was pretty hot. Unfortunately, so was the price tag (USD$1100) and so it inspired quite a few cool DIY tutorials 🙂 Nice as it was, it wasn’t quite my style so I never created a necklace DIY for it. However, I was looking at it… Read more »
