I’m getting ready for Christmas in my own way: the clay way!

Hopefully, this and many more hanging clay decorations will be ready in time to embellish the tree. 🙂

Sanctus Sphaericus Necklace

Beads, beads and more beads!

Got these metal, vintage looking beads from Hobbycraft. They remind me of  Salzburg’s architecture and its heavenly aura.

For price queries or any other details, contact me.

Jordana Fabuliner – Such a fabulous liquid eyeliner

26/11/2014

A friend of mine presented me with this gift as I was always complaining about make-up smudges and how hard I find it to draw the perfect line with any eyeliners. She bought plenty in bulk while visiting some relatives in the US, and I ordered two more for myself from Ebay.

It glides on effortlessly and stays put all day, quick dry, it creates the perfect drama effect and it’s absolutely amazing for such a cheap price! So far, I’ve only found them in black and brown.

New house!

26/11/2014

I moved houses recently and had to buy this-that and what not.
As our budget was becoming more and more strangled after having bought all the essentials, an expensive wardrobe wasn’t really something to afford.

As I am a big Amazon fan, I started browsing the website and found THIS!

There were no reviews so I was a bit skeptical about buying it. Nevertheless, although it was dispatched from Germany, it got delivered in 2 days, it was easy and fun to assemble, it’s light in weight, modern looking and each cube can hold up to 10kg of stuff. My handmade boxes went straight on top. It was a must.

You can find other designs from Songmics in different sizes, if you fancy this sort of furniture 🙂

I’m officially greeting The Mighty Winter

Brr, it’s getting colder and not even a cup of hot, milky tea can cope with the frost any longer. It’s almond & cherry, BTW 😛 (yum!)

And since I’m the chilly type, here’s a list to all of you sun lovers to guide yourselves after during these wretched months:

1. Thermal tights & knee highs (I think I might be addicted to them :D). They are a MUST!
2. Tea, tea, tea! Plenty of tea – keeps you warm, healthy & will work its magic on your skin.
3. Eat proteins, ginger & go shake that tush on the dance floor! That’s why the weekend was invented for! 😀
4. Snuggle under those fluffy covers! Burn that love! You might need a partner for that… 😀
5. Pick the right outwear & don’t leave your hands exposed to that blizzard.

Browse:

1. Legwear & more
2. Benefits of drinking tea
3. Warm jumper – bought mine in white. Great value for money!

And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be having my second cup of tea today.

P.s.: Oh, how I miss wearing this cherry skirt! *long sigh*

Findings, new ideas & soon: new handmade beauties

02/12/2012

I found these amazing buttons while shopping for some fruit in the Bullring Market some weeks ago. They’ve got a loop hole at the back, so they are just perfect for my clay projects, not to mention they’re absolutely gorgeous and their surface is perfectly smooth!

And since I’ve got this obsession for nature related things, I’ve created a small infantry of trees pressed into clay. After they’re all dressed up in paint and lacquered, they will embellish this small hexagonal wooden trinket box. (The image quality isn’t that brilliant, sorry for that!)

I’m also planning on using these small cuties for a brand new project of mine, which is hair accessories.
I’m not going to give away too many details, though (surprise-surprise-surpriiise!), since this is just a teaser…
