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 »

  • Review: Victoria Secret Pink tinted lip balm “Love”

    Before a friend gifted me with this lippie, I didn’t even realise that Victoria Secrets did make-up! And it’s no wonder if this lip balm is representative of the general quality of their make-up products. Basically, it sucks! OK before I bash it up, let’s go over what I like about it: – the product… Read more »

  • Creme de La Mer Soft Cream Review: if it’s not broke, why fix it?

    So, I finally bought the Creme de La Mer facial moisturiser. At £105 for 30 ml at House of Fraser- although I was good and bought it (and the eye cream) from Duty Free 🙂 – I thought about it for (literally) years before taking the plunge. Having hit the big 3-0, I’m willing to up what I… Read more »

  • Life in London: Draw & Dance

    Ballet Revolucion Having moved to London, I initially thought that I would write about living in London. But honestly, that topic is waaaaay overdone. There are so many blogs, much more interesting- and prettier!- than mine could ever be, about “new Londoners”. And yet, somehow, I would like to acknowledge this new phase in my… Read more »

  • Tried and tested: punk stud earrings

    When I visit other DIY sites, 1 question always comes to mind: “Would this project actually work?” (Particularly when it involves glue) As a fellow-DIYer, I must say it’s very cynical of me but oh well :p And whilst I try to only feature projects that I know can be used/ will last, sometimes I… Read more »

  • Chanel Camellia: 1 min flower hairpin DIY

    Behold, my first Chanel purchase! 🙂 When I was younger, I never saw the appeal of Chanel bags (I thought they were “old-looking” :p) but now I am a convert! 🙂 so at the ripe old age of 30, I decided to splurge on 1 of their classic quilted bags. I figured that the CPW… Read more »

  • 10 min DIY: bling bracelet

    This was a project I came up with some time back and really like. It s easy to do, fast and looks like it came from a store somewhere 🙂 it even works as a necklace- just use a longer chain 🙂 so enough of singing this project’s praises, and down to what you need:… Read more »

  • 10 min DIY: black and silver long chain statement necklace

    The description “Statement necklace” is waaay overused. Do a quick search on Etsy or Pinterest and you’ll find a gazillion examples which don’t seem to make a statement at all! (Or perhaps the author just has a different idea of what “statement” means from me- & the Oxford dictionary!) So I am a bit leery… Read more »

  • 5 min no pliers DIY tutorial: sleek silver bracelet

    I actually had a totally different idea in mind for this bracelet- i wanted to weave the bead caps to make a really thick bracelet- but unfortunately the cord was too thick! Unfortunately I’d already cut the cord, so I had to think of something else 🙂 What you need: – approximately 18 silver bead… Read more »
