Hello:) Hope you had a fun weekend.If you didn't,there's always another one so plan ahead!
I had a very interesting weekend and i thought i'd share with you.Let's start with  Friday evening-went window shopping/shopping/eating out with my friends and the bus almost left us behind at the was hilarious! Then Saturday came along and we had a party to attend.I don't do that often so i was pretty excited.I had fun dancing and laughing with my friends.Good company is good for the soul i tell you. Here's what the evening looked like for me ... sorry about all the doors in the background.

i couldn't stop smiling when i found this sequin top at the thrift store.:) i love sparkly stuff!

kept everything else black to tone it down a bit.

my beautiful and crazy flatmate.:)

oh yeah! i have a little fro hawk going on.

i'm usually the bag handler.i love my job but i danced a little.:)

some drama before leaving,(told you she's crazy)

That's it for now.I wish you a wonderful week filled with joy,happiness and progress.
And please stay warm!(if you are in a cold place).
Quote-A girl should be two things :classy and fabulous. -Coco Chanel
                                                                            One wish that you sparkle through the week,


WITH YOU!  Hello and welcome :). I had a thought and i wanted to share it. What does it mean to be in love with yourself. It sounded a bit funny to me at first but as i thought more ,stuff kinda cleared out.Being in love with yourself... i think it means something different to all of us cos everyone's definition of love is new and interesting.But i believe we should fall and stay in love with the person in the mirror because for no reason.JUST BECAUSE.
You are special and important and no one else will see it if you don't do so first.Sometimes we bend until we break for someone else whether or not its appreciated. Now i have nothing against being kind or sacrificing for people you love.But here's the question... What about you? When was the last time you did something nice for yourself or said something nice to or about yourself.
It might seem a little off to think about devoting time to loving yourself but you should.You will be better at loving others when you start with  you.
So here are some tips.

  • STOP!  Yeah just stop and breathe.Too often we  are in a hurry to get things done.We just want to go go go.School,market, again. Everyday.And even on days when we are off,there's no relaxation.You are stressing about tomorrow.Stop and give yourself a break.
  • SEE- How far you've come.And give yourself credit for all your hard work. There might still be a long way to go but you have made it this far.Enjoy it.
  • SAY- Nice things to and about yourself.I have a friend that replies compliments with''thanks,i know!'' and that always makes me laugh.There's a difference between conceit and confidence.So love yourself enough to say it.
  • SMILE- i keep coming back to this one.But that's only cos its important.Wake up.put a smile on your face and a spare one in your bag just in case you need backup so you never lose your smile.
  • TAKE- time to take care of your body.Eat healthy meals more often,exercise,drink loads of water,cut down on junk and eat more  fruits and vegetables.
  • PAMPER- yourself pretty! This is up to you.You can do anything you consider to be luxury or just something nice for yourself like a manny /peddy,facial treatment,get you an early birthday/Christmas present,or just get 30 extra minutes of sleep!
  • TREAT- yourself like royalty.Forgive yourself and give you some time and space to improve in any areas of your life that  you need to.

You are special,wonderful,unique,beautiful,intelligent and amazing.The fact that there is no one else that is like you should tell how true that is.
So please start now to truly love yourself.Don't wait for someone else to come along and do it for you cos its your job.
Quote- Love yourself.You deserve it.

Hola amigos fabulosos! he he he.( i know my love for Spanish is just starting to show.) Hope you are having an amazing day wherever you are.First snow today!!. I love snow,especially when its white out.Not a huge fan of the temperature that comes with it though.I have a little project to share with you.(not the one i intended to)still working on the video.But this is a really easy and fun way to jazz up some old sweaters for winter.Wore it to school and for some winter boots''hunting'' with my friend.Enjoy...

Thrifted sweater + studs(online Chinese store) + a little bit of 

patience= fab new sweater! :)

 you can try different patterns(a bow,heart,sign...) doesn't have to be the shoulders. 

stud all the way to the back 

takes about 30 minutes to complete.(if you do use studs,please sew a little bit of fabric underneath the shoulder area to keep you from feeling the cold metal when you go outside.)

my fab friend Blessing :)

Try changing up an old jumper by adding random craft items.if you like the end result,leave it on.if not,you can always try something else.I guarantee you'll have fun and you'll be amazed by what you come up with.
I wish you a wonderful,productive week.

I've been working on my first tutorial for a while now and believe me... its not very easy.i'm still learning how to edit and add stuff and whew! I salute youtubers. Its coming along great though and i'm enjoying the process. I hope it gets done this weekend cos i'm super excited to share that project.Christmas is almost here and it would make a nice,personalized gift for friends. Okay enough about my next post(hopefully).Here's what a couple of days ago looked like for me.Enjoy...Naranja amor..Spanish for ''Orange love''.

I've never really taken black as one of my favorite colors. White,coral and teal have been close to my heart for a while.But recently in the spirit of trying new things, i've been wearing more of other colors and as it turns out,black likes me a lot! :)
Threw this look together and it felt a bit too ''black'' so i let my pink scarf brighten it up a bit.I was really happy with it and as my big sister said ''rocker chic''. 

look at me mum,i'm flying!

Quote-Find out who you are and do it on purpose.- Dolly Parton.
You are wonderful,beautiful and amazing.Enjoy the rest of your week.

                                                                                               One really big hug,


Hello fabulous people.Hope everyone's week started great.If you are having a difficult time please don't worry.Its only Tuesday! We'll have tomorrow to get it right.:)
A while back,a friend of mine found an old note on a piece of paper in her room and she gave it to me and said''i'm sure this is yours''. I read it and yeah,it was mine! i thought i'd share it with you.Here's what believing has thought me...

''There are certain things to fight for in life.Most important is life itself and the little things that make everyday worth getting up and in to.Things like love,happiness,health,peace and success.I fight everyday and i believe more each minute that passes that something wonderful awaits me every moment of my life.I might not see the difference every day.May be too grumpy or sad to notice but as sure as the stars in the night sky are,i will keep my joy for the beautiful about the love of God is not the assurance that bad things won't happen.its the promise that my very best friend will always be by me.''

Sometimes its difficult to see past the ''now'' of things.When its like you are doing your best but day after day,its the same story. You've got to refuse to become negative and let the way things are today define you.
Believe that every thing will eventually get better.Hey! it has no choice! :) 
Tell the person in the mirror that you can get up and out of whatever you are going through then go out and take steps to make it better.It may not change immediately,but it will.This much i know is true.

 Quote-Believe in love,believe in magic.Hell believe in Santa Claus.Believe in others,believe in yourself.Believe in your dreams.If you don't,who will? - Jon Bon Jovi

I think i'm gonna leave you with that.Remember to live,laugh and love.:)

Hello fabulous people.I hope your weekend was fun.With a new week starting tomorrow,i thought i'd share some love and inspiration.So here it goes...

Start loving yourself more-look at the person in the mirror every day and say something positive.Smile at him/her and say how lovely he/she looks.Treat yourself like royalty and believe that you are worth it.

Give it hundred percent-do everything excellently(by your standards).Make sure you leave each day knowing that you did all you wanted to and could have done.

Look  flippn' amazing!- Every single day .Wear those new shoes just because.Change up your hair just because.Bring all that inner beauty out.Don't wait for a special occasion! Today is special enough.I have stuff i bought when i was a size 6 and i never wore them cos i was waiting for the right time.Now i can't wear them because i'm...well,not a size 6 anymore.(' ',)

Eat healthy-as much as you can.I understand busy schedules,exams and deadlines.But i encourage you to take some time to take care of yourself.Have healthy meals,fill up on those fruits and veggies.Your body will thank you later.

Be positive! Everything might not be exactly the way you would like.But hey,that's life.Choose to be happy and positive any way.Don't postpone your happiness until certain things happen.Be happy now! I've heard people say stuff like'' i will be happy when i get married,i will be happy when i graduate,i will be happy when i get my money,i will be happy when i'm done with this project''. No. Don't tie your joy to anything.You are here,that's good enough so please make the choice to be happy.:)

Be a gift to others- give,give,give.whatever you can,as long as it makes someone's day brighter.Give a smile,a hug,a listening ear,a compliment,anything fabulous.

from me to you.

Quote-Whatever good you want to be and do,start today. Doesn't matter how small.START.- Cynthia Chukwu
One wonderful thing about being alive is that you get to choose how you live.Choose love,life,happiness,peace,success,good and you .Start now.
Remember to live,laugh and love.

Sometimes we want to have all our ducks in a row before doing anything.I'm guilty of chronic over thinking and over analyzing.Now i'm not saying its not important to do your research but sometimes,you just need to let go,try and figure it out as you go.
