I love to buy my underwear from Hunkemöller , because I like to be abel to go to the store and try the bras on. Their designs reminds me a lot of Victoria Secrets, but they are a but cheaper. Ive been surfing on the website and the app, and I've found two bras I need to own. I know it's the same model in two different colours, but it's really pretty and comfy.
What you'll need
Fabric long and wide enough to wrap around your pillow
An invisible zipper - you can also use a normal
First of you need to know the size of the pillow. I've found that if I use the 50x50cm pillows from IKEA, I get the best result but cutting the fabric 50x50cm, because the pillow will fill it all out.
When you know the size of your pillow, you cut two pieces og fabric in the same length and width.
When you have your two pieces og fabric, you are going to attach the zipper to the two bottom edges. If you don't know how to apply a zipper, follow this tutorial.
After the zipper is attached, position the fabric right sides together, and sew to two outer edges together, to close the bottom edge of the pillowcase.
All you are going to sew ow is the side edges and the top edge - remember to leave the zipper open - and now your pillowcase is done..
I've been looking at Christian Louboutin's shoes for way too long, and I've almost decided which pair to invest in. At first I thought I wanted a pair in patented leather, but after trying them on, I've changed my mind. They were way too stiff for me, but I really liked the feeling of the suede and leather ones. I've decided on the materials, but now I need to decide on the style. My friend really liked So Kate, but I felt like I was tipping forward, because of the hight. I've always t´liked shoes with a cut out on the inside of the food, and I think I'm going to buy Iriza, because the hight is perfect, and it has a cut out. One of the other styles I looked at is Decollete 554, but I don't think the toe is long enough. It almost looks like it's been squeezed a little. Only time will tell which style I'm buying, but I need to make a decision within 2 months.
I'm having waaay too much sparetime at the moment, which means I find a lot of things I want and need. First of all I've found an apartment I really would like to buy - only happens in my dreams at the moment. Besides that I would really like to try some of the products from Swedish Stockings, and I've found a couple og jackets at American Dreams and Saint Tropez, some bags from Markberg and Rebecca Minkoff , and shoes from Christian Louboutin. Probably not buying everything right away, but who knows?
At one of the fashionfair's I attended in Copenhagen Fashionweek, Revolver, I stumbled upon a Swedish brand who is making stockings and pantyhose from reused materials, old and worn stockings and pantyhose. The brand is called Swedish Stockings, they are based in Stockholm, but is shipping everywhere.
I spoke to one of the two for quite a long time, they told about their products and their vision. I've been looking at their website, and I really need to try them out. If it's true what they write on their website, they last longer that the cheap ones, and with all of the different styles, it's impossible to not find a pair to like. You can either buy with or without patterns, long or short socks or pantyhose.
I had been thinking about my breakouts for a couple of days, and I really hate them. It suddenly hit me, what would happen if I cleaned my make-up brushes? Well... Let me tell you something - clean your god damn brushes!
After 3 days my skin looks normal again, and it's the best feeling. The same day as I cleaned my brushed, I bought my first concealer ever, and my god why haven't I bought that before? I used to use my foundation as a concealer, because I don't need too much coverage, but the concealer stick is waaay easier to carry around. Most people use a brush, but I use my finger when I'm on the run. I use the concealer stick from Nilens Jord, it's a medium coverage, but I think it's covering everything.
I’ve been in Copenhagen for the past couple of day with my school. We went to two different fashion fairs. Besides the fair, we went to the Design museum Danmark and to Christianaborg.
Yesterday we were at the Design museum where we saw the collection of Erik Mortensen’s - Haute Couture “I am black velvet”. When Erik Mortensen was 16 he drew from the northern Jutland to Copenhagen to study fashion design. He was going to visit family for the first time, but brought all of his drawings and sought the most recognized designer Holger Blom, designer at Pierre Balmains fashion house. When he was 22, Holger Blom told him to go to Paris, the capital of fashion, if he wanted to learn more, because Holger Blom had taught him all he knew. Erik Mortensen went to Paris, and within a few years he was working for Pierre Balmain.
The collection is a mix of dresses donated of Erik Mortensen’s family, and some borrowed from Balmains archives.
The two fairs was with a lot of different fashion brands. Because we are creating a webmagazine we needed to collect materials for the articles.
Do you ever find something at IKEA and think "wow this is nice, but everybody else have it..." Not anymore, because with just a few things you can put your personal touch to anything!
I bought this mini chest with drawers many years ago, and I've done a lot of different things to it. I've had it as I bought it, I've glued different types of wrapping paper on it, I've painted it, but I never really liked it. Until I found multiple rolls of self-adhesive gold foil at the thrift store for £2.5 each, so I bought them all. After that I went and bought 6 knobs for the drawers.
For the makeover you need to cut the foil to size, and afterwards apply it following the instructions on the packaging. When the foil is on the front of all of the drawers, my boyfriend helped me making the holes for the knobs. We made the holes in the center of every drawer.
