Catwalk fall

19 Feb

Winter is not coming, it’s here. And it brought snow. Lovely, but treacherous and slippery. Did you fall down on your butt these past few days or weeks? Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us.

Of course, these models are walking in mile high heels and on treacherous runways. Cudos to them! But for us normal people, cobblestones and wet marble are an equally big challenge.

So if you fall down flat on your face, do it with grace!

And stand back up with a big smile, like this Zac Posen model

xoxo!

Your inner ballerina

3 Nov

First position, pink tutu’s, satin slippers, plié, Swan Lake, Tchaikovsky, tendu…

Ballet is so stylish and good for your figure. And since Black Swan, it’s all the rage again!

I used to take ballet when I was little. And this trimester, I decided to put on my tutu again. We didn’t have class this week because of vacation, so I browsed Youtube to find some ballet class- and dreammaterial.

Here’s some of the videos I found. Enjoy!

 

 

Ballet class

Dancescenes “Adult ballet dvd” series is a great workout. They have plies, battement tendus, battement glisses, stretches and more. Good stuff.

 

tells you how to do stretches. But warm up first!

 

has some great tips to improve your flexibility. Not only for cheerleading. Now, I just wish I could do this.

 

Dream on

The Anaheim ballet Youtube channel is really a must-see. So go watch it!

 

This is how pointe shoes are (un)made. I never danced on pointes. When is it too late to start?

I don’t care that she didn’t do all of the ballet scenes, you can’t expect anybody to become a professional ballerina in just a year. Kudos to Natalie, Mila and Sarah Lane.

The story of OPI

22 Aug

We all love O.P.I., but did you know that it started out as a small family business? And that it used to be a dental products company? “Odontorium Products Inc” was founded in 1981 by George Schaeffer. Now it’s world’s leading professional nail care company. Good job!

Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, “The First Lady of Nails” tells you all about it.

In case you get hungry

8 Aug

I just spend about an hour making myself a gorgeous, enormous quiche. Ok, not so pretty when it fell apart, but extremely jummy anyways.

That made me think of this funny (and just a bit absolutely disgusting) Youtube series: Epic Meal Time. In case you get REALLY hungry.

But “ye be warned”, this contains a lot of bacon, beer, bacon, eggs, bacon and cheese…

Enjoy your meal!

Homemade earrings

4 Aug

I love making my own earrings, but I usually don’t have the time or inspiration for it. Very sad. Every now and then I do succeed in making myself a pair. Which is kinda hard, because they need to be about 99% the same at least… so if you’re not feelin’ up for that, making a necklace or ring is probably the better bet.

This is my collection homemade earrings for now

The top half is genuine DIY, whilst the bottom half is mainly “stick those two existing things together, et voilà”. Which works for me 🙂

Have a closer look:

Snowball / Red bow / Heels / Candy

Candy / Upcycled moviestars

Stars / Flower 1 / Flower 2 / Tinkerbell

Flower 1 / Flower 2 / Tinkerbell / Flower studs

Here’s a Youtube tutorial to make your own easy earrings

I don’t use 3 kinds of plyers, but just one, so that’s probably why my loops aren’t as nice. But that’s fine I guess.

My jewelry stand is a beauty like this one. It’s so elegant, displays up to 64 pairs of earrings and is just cute as hell! You may have noticed I’m still head over heels in love with this one, I got it from a Dutch webshop Capricci.nl. But you can find these just about everywhere now.

Have fun!
