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.

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 »

  • Upcycling DIY: old shopping handles

  • Top Tuesday: Best Hex Nut DIY jewelry

    Hex nuts were really big. Back in 2011, 2012. Which makes my post just a little dated. But hey I say real style is timeless and so is really stylish DIY 🙂 Regardless of whether it’s 2010, 2015 or 2050, these little DIY projects are just as cool as ever 🙂 I’ve tried to choose… Read more »

  • 365 DDD: 10 min DIY Dannijo-inspired earrings for short hair

    So, a week before graduation, I made the colossal mistake of going for a haircut. And due to a series of errors, ended up with 4 inches shorter hair than I had wanted. (I guess lob does sound a bit like bob…) I’d always rolled my eyes at girls who cried at the drop of… Read more »

  • Makeover Monday: Orla Kiely Geranium Body Lotion

    Orla Kiely does body lotion? Who knew?! To be honest, I’ve never seen the point of Orla Kiely (or geraniums for that matter)- not that it’s not nice, it just seems too overpriced! However, when i stayed at Nobis Hotel in Stockholm during my Easter holiday this year, they provided Orla Kiely toiletries (how patriotic)… Read more »

  • Makeover Monday: La Mer facial

    If you grew up in the 90s-00s, and read fashion magazines, La Mer is probably the Holy Grail of beauty to you. Heinously expensive but supposed to be oh-so-good. To make it even better, it even has a real story behind it, and not just marketing drivel! (scientist burns self, scientist spends years looking for… Read more »

  • How to get designer goods for less: Bicester Shopping Village

I used to be a super indifferent dresser (still lots of room for improvement now I say!) but after exploring all these outlets in UK & Europe, I’m a convert to the saying “there’s no excuse to be badly… Read more »

  • Omorovicza Cleansing Mitt

    Before you think I’ve lost my mind (or won the lottery), I would NEVER pay £10 for a cleansing mitt. Well not unless it gives me perfect skin 😛 This mitt was the gift for spending £150 at Omorovicza Liberty. (That’s the best part about shopping at Omorovicza Liberty- they give great gifts when you hit… Read more »

  • Liberty: Aveda Stress-Fix Massage

    Yes, I’ve decided to give Liberty its very own series in my blog 😛 That tells you just how much I love it & how often I go for 1 of their treatments. (2 interlinked factors :P) But hey since the treatments are redeemable, they’re a real bargain! 🙂 After all, we all need to top… Read more »

  • The best liquorice tea

    Sad as this may sound, the most memorable thing about my Dublin holiday in 2006 was that it introduced me to Liquorice tea. I’d always hated the taste of Liquorice but, in the name of trying new things, I decided to give the Liquorice and Peppermint tea (Never liked peppermint tea either!) that the Aveda… Read more »
