I love...

DIY! Im no stranger to a paintbrush and hammer but in this case I am talking about making jewellery . Now I have to say I am no expert but and the things that I have made will more than likely fall apart but that doesn't really bother me too much as I tend to change my tastes so often. The reasons why I usually diy things is that sometimes you can replicate something in a shop for a cut price and that no one else will have what you have made.

So enough of my rambles, these are just some of the pieces that I have made, I tend to prefer more masculine jewellery. Im not really one for brights colours and beads, not that I don't like that sort of thing it just doesn't really suit me and my style.

So that is just a small selection of things I have made, so far I have only experimented with chain and cord, but i kind of like this combination. I do want to some leather and suede cords and some different types of chain, obviously I will probably need to branch out from the wrist wear jewellery as my whole arms will be covered with bracelets!

I have also experimented with body chains which I love and I personally think are crazy prices in the shops when you can make one for literally pennies. So I hope you are inspired to try and make some things. Its always nice when someone asks you where you got an item and you know that no one will have the same thing as you do.

Happy diy-ing! x

What I Wore: 1.

Playsuit- h&m, Cardigan- Primark.

Its pretty difficult for me to get a full length shot in my room but I am sure I will find a good way in the end, this required a stool, multiple books and something to prop against my camera to stop it falling over. Obviously a tripod would be the answer to my problems, but you know that would be far to simple for me, i like the challenge.

So this is what I ended up wearing today its actually sunny for once and dare I say slightly warm. Some days I just cannot be bothered to form an outfit and if I am not going anywhere then I don't like to 'waste' a good outfit, I am strange I know. I think that a playsuit is a good way of wearing something easy and that requires little effort, you can just throw it on and it usually looks okay.

In true lazy style my hair is in dire need of a good washing so I just put in it this huge high bun, some people may not like it but I think it looks nice and makes a change from just scraping it back in a ponytail. I always feel like I should be a ballerina when I have my hair in a bun.

So that's all for now folks. x
