DIY Tutu Skirt For You and Your Daughter

I used to take ballet classes when I was small and what I liked about them the most was my tutu skirt. It made me feel like a ballerina. And when I saw this skirt online, I knew I had to try to make it myself. It was fun, especially because I could not wait to see Chloe-Sofia’s reaction. At first, she did not want to wear it. But then I made one for myself and she changed her mind. As one of my friends like to say, she is in her monkey see, monkey do stage. This tutorial is simple and takes maximum 45 minutes.

DIY Pearl Denim Shorts

I have been eyeing pearl denim shorts for months now. The first time that I saw pearl denim was during an event that I attended a few months back. The girl, who wore them, looked relaxed, understated and chic. She had this “je ne sais quoi” aura about her and I fell in love with that look. By the time we reached summer, I noticed pearl denim everywhere.

The nice thing about pearl denim is that it is not about the age but about …

Hi everyone,

I hope your week is going well. After two weeks I finished my first video tutorial. I used Filmora software which is very user friendly and once you learn how to use it, it can make wonders. Have you ever tried making videos? I have been blogging for more than three years now and vlogging is a completely new sphere.

Chloe-Sofia was not at home last weekend, I could work on the video but I really don’t know how I …

DIY Pompoms – Customize Your Handbag

Pompoms are so versatile. They are easy to make and perfect to customize just about anything. From heels, sandals, handbags to a T-shirt, pompoms are the way to go. And how to make your pompoms?

I used a pompom maker because it is fast and easy. You can also make your pompoms with a cardboard. It is supposed to be easy but I did not succeed to make them as pretty as with a pompom maker. It is up to you which method you choose but I find that pompom maker makes them perfectly round and even. …

DIY Flower Crown – Summer Must-Have

I would like to share with you fast, easy and affordable flower crown tutorial. It took me 20 minutes to make it and I spent CHF14 ( $14) in our local flower shop. I ended up choosing real flowers over silk ones as those, that I found, were too expensive and not nice enough. In free weeks, I am going to be at Paléo Festival which will be the best occasion to wear my flower crown.

It is my favorite summer music festival of the year. Besides music, Paléo is about the atmosphere. It …

Lace Hem Jeans – Summer DIY

I really enjoy wearing lace tops and dresses in summer. The other day, when I was going through my old clothes, I found a pair of white jeans that I have not put on for two years. I was about to give them away when I got an idea to customize them with a bit of scalloped lace. It turned out to be a fast and an affordable way to refresh my old jeans. And I still can’t believe how many compliments I receive every time I wear them. 

Here is what you need to make your own lace …

DIY Slogan T-shirt Inspired by Dior

I love Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s books. Besides being funny, beautiful and smart, Ms. Adichie’s work will make you laugh and cry when you expect it the least. Half of a Yellow Sun made me weep like a baby when I got to the end while The Americanah feels so bitter sweet and personal that I have been reading in bits and pieces for several months. Isn’t it funny how certain books can touch something deep inside and make us ponder our own existence? My current plan is …
