DIY: Floppy Disk Penholder

So I had a lot of floppy disks lying around at home, and recently discovered a way of recycling them from Domestic Geek. Result - a floppy disk penholder.
You'll need: 5 old Floppy Discs, Scoubidous (or string/cable ties/etc.) and a whole lot of patience
Drill two holes, one on either side of the discs (there are already marked dents in the disc). Pick out your base (i.e. the disc you want to be the base of your pen holder) and drill two extra holes towards the top corners.
Lay the four discs out, tying them all together (once at the top, and once at the bottom) for each side.
*Note that the bottom corners already have these slots that you can slide down
Tie the "base" disc onto the bottom of one of the four discs. Then, bend the four "side" discs and tie them together (this is when you need patience) - after all this is done, tie the other corners of the base disc onto the corners of the side discs.
Add absolutely anything you want - and you are done!
My greatest apologies if the instructions are a bit confusing (...okay, maybe a lot), but you can head over to Instructables for a more detailed step-by-step guide. Good luck!! xx

Outside; When the Rain Falls

Today I'm stuck at home staring out the window at the grey sky listening to the pouring rain. Indeed, my life probably doesn't seem at all that interesting, but I guess I am one to be easily entertained (taking photos of the - very scarce - amount of plants that my family has in our backyard). The photos aren't that great, but i just thought I'd like to share them.

See you soon. xx

Jungle - Emma Louise

"My head is a jungle" - gosh I really love this song! I've been playing it on repeat all of today.

Catch y'all later. xx

Muted Out

Loose Waist Pants - Supre, Cropped Black Long Sleeve - Supre, Combat Boots - ROC, Black Bag - My Nonna's
Today I did almost nothing - sat at home, browsing e-shops for clothes (a pointless routine, since I am not even allowed to buy things online). However, I managed to go out to some shops for a while, to get an idea of what kind of dress I want for the upcoming social but most of the things that I liked:
1. Were sold out (this applies to the e-shops)
2. Were faulty - boo
3. Did not come in my size
4. Did not look good on me - yes, even the dummies looked better than I did
I sure hope I'm luckier in the next few days. xx

The Tilt-Shift Camera

Images, as well as the camera itself from Photojojo
Isn't this camera absolutely amazing? I love the effect it creates - seemingly "miniaturised" photos. Wait until I get my hands on these babies...

I'll keep dreaming. xx

Out and About

I haven't the slightest clue of what I was doing.
Chiffon Blouse - ChicabootiDenim Leggings (aka "Jeggings") - Supre, Black Suede Brogues - Wittner, Vintage Bag - my Nonna, Floppy 70s Style Hat - Dotti

Met up with two of my great friends today, we went shopping (my retail therapy after all the exams) and then went for a "catch up session" at the park. I pretty much shopped until I dropped (I'm currently owing people money). Boo.  It was a pretty sunny day on the most part, and it was great to see their faces again. Also, hoorah for my first ever outfit post! 

Lovity love, xx

DIY: Popsicle Box

A simple lady-bug popsicle box I made. 

So I know this is really simple, and so many people have done this before - I remember first making one in kinder for Father's Day - but I really wanted to make one again (talk about reliving out old memories).

So here's what you'll need:
A few popsicles, PVA Wood Glue, and whatever decoration you want.
And not really a tutorial, but here's a GIF (I was playing around):

Have fun, and see y'all very soon. xx

Just a Little Hello

Sorry I haven't been blogging for a while - I have exams coming up soon. However, I guess I'm free for at least two weeks after the exams are over so I'll probably be able to publish more posts. Promise.

See you all very soon! xx

An Oldie but a Goodie

My dearest grandmother "handed down" this awesome bag to me, along with a few others. The leather's cracked and some of the stitching has come undone, but, nonetheless I love it - if anything, it gives the bag more character.

Until next time. xx

While waiting for the train to come I took some photos. There are also some I took on the train - I promise I didn't look the least bit like a tourist - honest!

You've got to love public transport. xx
