Figs after Easter

10 May

a.k.a. Cupcake lesson FOUR

I know I know, Easter has come and gone, but I realised I hadn’t shared my cupcake creations for Easter / Spring with you yet! And it’s still spring (although judging from the weather, you’d think it’s fall allready). So here’s some sunshine and smiles for you, Enjoy!

Spot the smile

13 Apr

A big part of your look and how you come across, comes down to confidence.

Feeling good about yourself is the main accessory!

Do you often feel insecure? Play some games!

Researchers from the Department of Psychology of McGill University (Canada) came up with these online “self-esteem games“, which are designed to break negative thought patterns.

“Imagine you could play a computer game for five minutes each morning that would help you feel more secure and confident in yourself. Our research shows that people may be able to change the negative thought patterns that sometimes produce insecurity. We are now examining whether over time, with practice, people can develop positive, beneficial habits of thought to help them become more secure and self-confident on a long term basis — whether in the context of their working life, their personal relationships, or their overall sense of well being. Beginning in 2006, these games are being developed and marketed by MindHabits Inc.”

Are you ready to grow your confidence by playing Eyespy, Grow Your Chi or Wham just 5 minutes a day?

So, does it actually work? I have no clue, but it sure is funny! And worth a try 🙂

Painting dresses

3 Mar

I was watching an old Sex And The City episode a while back and this scene just keeps popping up in my head. The fabulous “Closet Dress up Scene”

LOVE Charlotte’s Marilyn Monroe / Warhol / Pop-Art dress (1:23 in the video)! The legging… not so much 🙂

Google has some more wearable art, painting shoes and iconic trousers.


An other Warhol dress: Campbell’s soup!

Mondriaan-fan? Prepare to be spoiled! With a YSL Dress, Louis Vuitton handbag and Louboutin shoes. Also some nice heels that I found on Etsy and even a bra, made by Sapph. Fab! This very graphic print seems to be a great source of inspiration for designers.

Keith Haring!

An other favourite of mine: Escher!


And end it with a Scream. Munch!

Do you know of any other paintings-turned-clothes ? What’s your favourite?

Have one’o mine!

Dress like Blair

27 Jul

Blair Waldorf is classy, sassy and spoiled. Gossip Girls all over the world love her for it. Dressing like Blair? Keep these things in mind:

  • Do the uniform thing: blazers, preppy skirt, white blouses, navy, plaid skirts, tie or bow, knee socks.
  • The headband is the crown: big, tiny, red, tartan, bow, flower, lace,… anything goes!
  • Colour: blue and yellow, hot red, a splash of pink, electric green. Colour blocking “hooray!”, but never let it overpower the outfit.
  • Girly: bows, flowers, pink, diamonds. Blair wears a lot of socks and tights, but trousers? Never!

Will she keep this up in the fifth season?
