Featuring: Scarves & Accessories by Ima Picó

Hi guys!

So today I’ve got a post for y’all featuring an ETSY store which sells scarves and accessories by Ima Picó. Her work is utterly amazing, trendy and vibrant.

Here’s a statement by Ima:

You will find unique silk scarves for women and pocket squares for men and other handmade accessories such as necklaces, beaded bracelets, wrapped bangles, brooches, pin flowers and small decorating pillows all designed by me and printed on natural silk.

I accept customs orders, so have a look around and if you find something you like but prefer another size/color, please let me know and I might be able to help you.


On to her work!

I’ve picked to feature two of her scarves:

I feel this scarf would be perfect for autumn as it has cool colours which helps begin the transition into winter fashion. It still has pops of colours which avoids the feeling of a dull outfit.

cropped-makeup il_570xN.737670072_f5y1The second scarf I have chosen is this one; it’s vibrant and perfect for the transition into spring. The bright colours give a playful, joyous feel to the outfit – making it a somewhat statement piece. The colours on this scarf screams out spring!

il_570xN.658894863_qx15 il_570xN.658894909_3eg0Now onto the accessories:

This is a unique, subtle yet pretty necklace. The colours are not too vibrant, instead have a calm, sophisticated sense to them. This would be perfect to spice up an ordinary outfit in the spring or summer time.

il_570xN.714038076_lq0pThis bracelet is another amazing piece my Ima, it has quirky, bright colours similar to one of the scarves mentioned above. It would be a perfect duo piece or a stand alone piece to bring some colour and life into your outfit. It is also made out of silk, making it extremely comfortable to wear throughout your day.

Lastly, my favourite piece by Ima; her pillows!

I can’t express how adorable these are; they are full of colour and would look magnificent on your sofa or even on your bed. I think these are a really fun piece to have around the house and also give off a spring/summer time vibe. If you don’t like this one, she has many more to choose from!

il_570xN.700106964_afy8 il_570xN.700230635_bezyCheck out her store/connect with her:

Ima has also kindly provided us with a discount code for 20% off items in her store! Use this at the checkout in her ETSY store: BUYHANDMADE20.


Let me know your favourite piece from her store & your thoughts on her work!

“Knee/Thigh High Socks” Trend?!

Hi guys!

So I’ve seen quite a few people sporting the knee high socks look and it does look quite cute! At first I was skeptical as it reminded me of animes and manga (nothing wrong with that) which I thought was a bit odd. However as I began to see them styled, I realised that the trend is actually quite cute especially with a t-shirt dress or even shorts. I think that this trend may make your legs look shorter though (especially if you’re already short) which is not what you want! The knee high socks trend gives a very girly, playful look.


Here are some pics of girls styling it:

Although it’s a cute trend, I personally wouldn’t wear this out – it would be comfy at home during winter though! Let me know your thoughts on this trend & if you’d sport it.

Featuring: CraftiveLeather + FIRST GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)!

Hi everyone!

I am so excited to be collaborating with Michael, the owner of CraftiveLeather who has allowed me host a giveaway for him (my first one EVER!). So stay tuned until the end for that – also there’s a prize for you whether you’re male or female!

Here’s a quick synopsis of what he’s about:

We love to create leather jewelry inspired on rustic and old look style but we love the most the idea of someone enjoying our items.
We design and create leather bracelets for men and women, leather pendants and rings from recycled materials. On our leather wristbands and pendants we use high quality genuine leather.
From us you will find raw, old look, rugged and rustic style of leather jewelry made with all our love and care!

As soon as I begun to browse his ETSY store I fell in love with the rustic, yet fashionable bracelets he creates. I am so excited to be branching out to a larger audience, in this case men! Men can actually read this post and gain inspiration without being overloaded with all makeup and girly stuff (shoutout to my male followers!).


I’ve picked my five favourite pieces from his shop to feature & show you all:

il_570xN.731102205_dmib il_570xN.733055328_eqbbPersonally, I think this is such a fashionable piece and is perfect for the upcoming Spring and Summer for those of you in the Northern Hemisphere! It captures the essence of Spring and will definitely add a little spice to an outfit as well as festivity.

il_570xN.733270771_q3eq il_570xN.718427799_h20wThis one is for my male readers which I think is extremely fashionable, yet versatile. I love the subtle detailing on the bracelet which makes it more interesting and edgy than just a plain wristband – perfect for a day in the city!

il_570xN.733107888_bj2jil_570xN.733279269_1uy8Here are two different bracelets with touch of denim – I think the touch of denim makes it look sophisticated, yet fun with the leather on the outside. The first one (NO3) gives off a more classy look, suitable for more important events where as the bottom one (N18) is more casual and perfect for a day out.

il_570xN.733128958_b971 I think this bracelet is captivating as it’s simplistic, yet stylish which would definitely add another element to your outfit & would definitely be grabbing some compliments.

il_570xN.725658061_a6x6 il_570xN.725526236_luk9This leather bracelet has a nifty aluminum plate attached to the middle which I believe is able to be customised to say whatever you please (how cool is that!). This bracelet captures the rustic, yet modern fashion style for men – one that I would definitely buy for my boyfriend!


So those are my favourite pieces from Michael’s store – and what’s more, they are all made from genuine leather and the whole store has FREE SHIPPING! Who doesn’t love that.

“This or That” Tag

Hey guys!

I’ve seen this tag going around on wordpress, so decided I’d join in and tag myself, haha ;). Hope you enjoy reading!


This or That?

Blush or bronzer?
I would have to go with bronzer, since I love how contouring looks!

Lip gloss or lip stick?
I prefer the way lipstick looks, also I don’t own any super good lipglosses (unless you count the provocalips!).

Eyeliner or mascara?
This one is easy for me, eyeliner because my lashes NEVER stay curled, no matter what I do! It’s super annoying.

Foundation or concealer?
Foundation because you can use it all over your face & I mainly use it to even out my skin tone and cover some blemishes. I barely use concealer!

Neutral or colour eye shadow?
Definitely neutral, I don’t really like attention being brought to me.

Pressed or loose eye shadows?
I think pressed, just because they’re easier to work with.

Brushes or sponges?
Brushes definitely, I’ve tried using a dupe of the beauty blender and it sucks.

NAILS:

OPI or China Glaze?
I’ve never tried China Glaze, so OPI.

Long or short?
Definitely long!

Acrylic or natural?
I think I’ll go with natural since acrylics are really damaging, also I love doing my own nail art (hate waiting for the polish to dry though, anyone else? -_-)
Brights or darks?
Darks – I think they look much more sophisticated.

BODY:

Perfume or body splash?
Perfume.

Lotion or body butter?
Umm, I’ve actually never used a body butter so I suppose lotion!

Body wash or soap?
Body wash, it’s easier to use and comes in heaps of different scents.

Lush or other bath company?
I’ve actually never tried lush (ahh I know) soo other bath company.

FASHION:
Jeans or sweat pants?
Jeans, sweat pants sometimes look like you’ve just got out of bed.

Long sleeve or short?
Short sleeves.

Dresses or skirts?
Dresses, I used to hate wearing them but now I am obsessed. They’re perfect to throw on too without worrying about matching clothes together.
Stripes or plaid?
Stripes since I don’t own any plaid clothing!

Flip-flops or sandals?
Sandals since I only wear flip flops when going to the beach.

Scarves or hats?
Hmmm this is a hard one, I’ve recently been getting into hats but the one I bought is too big for my head -_-. I’ll have to go with scarves.

Studs or dangly earrings?
I like dangly earrings but for school I like studs or small hoops.

Necklaces or bracelets?
Definitely necklaces, for the sole reason of I lose all my bracelets. My boyfriend gave me a bracelet for my first birthday together but I LOST IT!!! Depressing :(.

Heels or flats?
I would love to be able to wear heels but I am already super tall, so I would say flats or heels with a small heel.

Jacket or hoodie?
Hoodie, I think they’re way more comfy and cute.

HAIR:

Curly or straight?
I have dead straight hair which is nice, but I would love to perm my hair wavy.

Bun or ponytail?
Ponytail because when I tie my hair in a high pony it looks extra long.

Bobby pins or butterfly clips?
Bobby pins, butterfly clips are too girly/young.

Hair spray or gel?
Hair spray, do girls even use gel?

Long or short?
LONG! I’ve been trying to grow my hair for like five years now, but it seriously grows slower than a snail moves.

Light or dark?
I would love to dye my hair a light golden brown, so light.

Side sweep bangs or full bangs?
Side sweep bangs.

Up or down?
I actually prefer up in a high pony so it’s out of my face.

RANDOM:

Rain or shine?
I’d prefer shine but only if it’s below 24 degrees – I HATE hot, humid weather!

Summer or winter?
Definitely winter.

Autumn or spring?
Spring, it’s not too hot – I love the fashion of spring too.

Chocolate or vanilla?
Vanilla, I like the taste better.

Kim, Kourtney, or Khloe?
Kim. I recently watched Keeping up with the Kardashians (ahha) and she seems pretty sweet.

Coffee or tea?
I like either, but out of the two I think I would have to go with tea.


That’s all the questions in the tag, hope you guys enjoyed reading!

“Flash Tattoo” Trend?!

Hi everyone!

So another recent trend/popular item are flash tattoos – I personally think they’re adorable! They are perfect for the summer or even spring time to jazz up an outfit (perfect for big events) and they look gorgeous as they catch the light and let off some shimmer. They can used in place of jewellery and often come in gold & silver – the best thing is that they’re not permanent & easy to apply, so you can wear it whenever you like! These are pretty cheap too. Personally, I think it gives off a subtle hippie/festival vibe, which looks amazing.


Here are some pics of flash tattoos:

Would you wear these and if so when? I love how these looks & would be totally up to wearing them for events, parties or going to the beach. I don’t really like how the necklace flash tattoo looks though.
