DIY Betty’s Cute Heart Ring

Like a lot of fashion & bloggin’ lovers do, I follow Le Blog de Betty on a regular basis. Betty’s style is so rock ‘n’ classy, colorful and inspiring, I love it ! If you are also a loyal follower of Miss Betty, you may have noticed her little heart gem… And if you haven’t, here’s a quick glimpse at that cute little ring Betty barely takes off :

So…. When I came across an old ring I had, I couldn’t resist a DIY !

To make your own Cute Heart Ring, YOU WILL NEED :

– A good look at Betty’s blog for inspiration

– A gem ring

– Pink nail polish, I used CHANEL 217

– About a minute, including drying !

Just dab a drop of pink onto the gem, leave it to dry, et voilà !

Spring Shades

Do you ever find that you have two items that suit each other so well and yet by essence cannot be worn together ? It happens to me so often and these two new pairs of Spring sunglasses are the perfect example. Don’t they look amazing together ?!                         Image

Mint is everywhere at the moment, a real Twenty-Twelver. You may have seen byebyesoccermom’s DIY leather mint belt featured in Chic Steal’s links of the week (along with my Walk of Fame wedges !) or maybe you noticed it’s right there every time you click on TheBeautyDepartment.com, up in the top right corner. And red ? Well, red’s a staple. And the sexy shade is definitely enjoying the pastel phase fashion is going through this year because it stands out more than ever ! I’m consciously influenced by current trends and think these colours look grand together, but the problem with these glasses is I will always have to pick one or the other…

By the way, did you notice my bright blue shelf ? I told you I was DIYing my new flat at the moment… Well this particular creation was made from a drawer I found in the street, a can of blue spray paint and a couple of belts : ) Ya like ?

Mint shades – Bought at local RSPCA charity shop

Wow, what a difference it makes using a real camera – this blog is on FIRE !

Hama Bead Baby

Remember playing with Hama beads ?! Well not everybody grew out of it… I have been messing around with these colourful plastic beads for the last couple of days and have come up with some funky stuff ! The story behind me getting back into this is actually pretty amazing – I recently moved into a new flat and apparently the people who lived here before me were creative fellas ! They left me a whole cupboard of exciting bits and pieces, and a great big box of Hama beads ! Previous tenants, if you are still out there somewhere, THANK YOU !

Have a look at these…
