Christmas Wishlist

christmas wish list

It has become a tradition for me to make this wishlist every year. It started as a fun idea to share what I was looking forward to get for christmas, and now it is a must, my parents are already asking… – Are you not making a list this year? And, yes I am, here you go:

  1. Kitchen Aid Artisan in White, it’s been my dream already for many years to have it. This year is not going to happen, since there’s no space for it in my kitchen (don’t want any trouble with my rommie), but it’s still my dream, that’s why it stays my number one in the wishlist.
  2. Google Chromecast to be able to connect my phone and other devices to the TV,  and more 😀
  3. Nexus 9 – Black, 32 GB, LTE my laptop is not going to last forever and I’ve been looking for a solution, maybe this could be it!
  4. There’s no Christmas without a new Pj’s .
  5. I have just the perfect shoes for this leopard clutch, so, destiny?
  6. Rebecca Minkoff Avery bag because I’m looking for a new everyday bag.
  7. Fancying a new nail polish, my favourite and perfect for this season, Chanel’s Rouge Noir. 
  8. Because it’s time to say goodbye to my beloved Asos Parka, going for this Zara one.
  9. Looking for a replacement for my long-lost winter beanie, this Carhartt one does the trick for sure!
  10. And last but not least… Grace Vagabond boots, my old ones are sadly falling into pieces…

(It got expensive tho :P)

DIY Polka Dot Coffee Cups

Bored of your plain white coffee cups/mugs? I have a solution for you!

Next you’ll be drinking your coffee in the morning in a self designed cup or making your loved ones happy with your great and unique coffee set gift 😀

First think of a design for your cup, I used polka dots in gold, but there are many things you can draw and colours you can use.

I bought a special sharpie water-based for porcelain, glass, metal and glazed ceramic objects. It was arround the 4€ and it’s totally worth because the finish is perfect.

Make sure your cups are clean and dry before you start. Draw your design and when done wait 4 hours till it’s completely dry. Heat fix in a non-preheated oven for 90 min at 160 ºC. Let it cool in the oven. This way you’ll make your design dishwasher safe 😀

*I don’t recommend painting on the surface you’ll eat or drink.

DIY Raindrop Pillow

IMG_0492_2

I’m back to work, and it was time that I did some diy post. This one is a different one, no more fashion accessories for now.

I got a sewing machine for christmas and I was thinking all the time what could I do with it, since I’m learning and I’m still not able to do some Haute Couture. My Sis told me about this tutorial so I had to do it. My version it’s a little bit different since I didn’t sew legs to it, but pretty much it is the same. Took me some time to find fabrics that I liked but well, I think I’ve chosen quite well didn’t I?

These two are going to someone very special that hasn’t been born yet (just a few days/hours to go), and I hope she likes them 😀

You’ll need

  • a newspaper
  • a pencil
  • pin needles
  • 2 pieces (approx. 50 x 50 cm) of fabric : I used a blue velvet one, and a two-tone polka dot blue
  • scissors
  • needle and white thread
  • sewing machine (optional)
  • polyester batting (150 gr will be enough)
  • embroidery needle
  • black embroidery floss
  • coral embroidery floss

1

Draw a raindrop on the newspaper paper. Pin the template to the velvet fabric and cut the raindrop shape out of the fabric leaving approx. 1cm seam allowance. Cut also the raindrop shape out of the polka dot fabric.

2

Put the two right sides pieces together and sew, leaving an opening at the bottom for the stuffing. Turn right side in and stuff the pillow with batting. Hand stitch it closed. Sew on the eyes and mouth and you’re finished!
