Job interview look

June 19, 2014

Sweet As Candy headband – vintage earrings – Asos dress
Oh my, it’s been so long since I did a look of the day. The shame. Anywaysies, today I went to an amazing job interview and it went so well. Do you know that feeling of being so happy and excited that you just wanna squeal even though you’re surrounded by people in the middle of public? That’s how I felt when I left. If I actually squealed or not will remain unknown, but I have such a great feeling about this. Next friday at 10 I will have to go to a makeup test with a model of my own choice, so cross your fingers for me guys, and hope it will be fabulous! This job is so perfect for me, so hopefully I will have good news shortly. Eeeep, the excitement.

DIY | Flintstones bone necklace

March 31, 2014
Here’s a fun, little DIY project that I wanted to share with you guys. I’ve always had a thing for The Flintstones and that whole cavewoman look, especially if it’s in a more cartoon-ish and not so serious way. Kinda like Jeremy Scott’s SS10 collection, which was just perfect. Anyway, something about brown beads and nylon string kinda offends me, so here’s a quick DIY on how to turn cheap halloween jewelry into actual, wearable accessories (if you’re into this sort of style, of course!)
Remove the nylon string from the face of earth and paint the brown beads black with your magic marker. They will need to dry for a bit, otherwise they can stain the plastic bones. And well, your fingers. I used a bobby pin to hold the beads so my hands wouldn’t get all black and magic marker-y. 
Arrange the bones and the beads nicely – meaning turn the bones the right way, so the ”made in China” logo won’t show, since this was obviously too big a job for the manufacturer to handle themselves – and also take one long bone from one of the bracelets that comes with the jewelry set and put in on the chain.
And there you have it. Your very own, very fancy bone necklace. Perfect for.. Well, people who’s into kitchy things and may or may not be cavewoman/stoneage/Flintstones obsessed. I’m saving the rest of the extra bones for future DIY’s and also use the earrings that come with the set for everyday wear – all I did to those was changing them from clip-on earrings to having a hook. So much more comfortable now that they don’t squeeze my poor ears.

Latest eBay finds

March 26, 2014
I may or may not have gone a bit overboard with my eBay and etsy shopping lately, but I have very valid excuses for once. Also it’s been forever since I did one of these eBay shopping updates, so I thought now would be a good time to start again. I’ve tried to link to everything, but since some of these items – like the Jeffrey Campbell shoes and Wildfox clothing – were one of a kind items I won, I’ve just linked you guys to the specific sellers.
I’ve officially banned myself from shopping until next month, cause we really just can’t risk becoming eBay addicts, right? So my watch-list is getting longer and longer and in reality I should just log off the internet so I won’t be tempted. Did you guys find any interesting treasures on eBay lately?

Bones & leopard

March 22, 2014

Details of todays look. I almost got tired of the red hair, but a change of mood and music helped with new inspiration. I’m currently re-obsessed with bone jewelry – DIY will follow soon – and I especially like it paired with red lips, hair and leopard print.

Blazer and velvet dress are both secondhand, I will pair it with these shoes and this jacket when I head out to show some sweet American girls around in a minute. They are visiting Copenhagen this weekend, and are friends with someone really special to me, so no doubt it will be fun.. If, I can manage to stop listening to 60’s music and actually leave, that is.
