Happy new year !

I know, 2012 hasn't started yet, but I would like to wish everyone an amazing year ! My sister and I will be using firework for the first time in our lifes ! This will be my last '2011' post, and I thought of some goals for my blog next year :

- I would like make more DIY's for beauty products and fashion;
- I want to take more pictures and maybe save some money for a better camera ;
- Maybe I can start making youtube videos for Hairstyles and DIY's

If you have any more ideas to improve this blog, please let me know.

P.S. My Ebay auction for the Penny Loafers is -click here- ending today. I can send to Germany, Holland
and the USA (although the costs would be very high, as I live in Germany).

with love, Jip.

Sewing adventures # 1

This will be my first 'Sewing Adventures' - post. It is not that I need hats. I have a lot of hats. This is a hat I made for a friends friend. There is this girl in my school, called Julia and she is in 5th grade (I'm in 10th) and she also comes from Holland.  She once asked what hobbies I had and what I did in my free time and I answered this question with blogging, buying vintage clothing, playing the piano and sewing. Then, she asked me if we could sew so a hat for her friend back in Holland together and that afternoon we started right away. 

I used a hat pattern on this website. The lady who owns the website is a very experienced seamstress, I think. And although the site is half Japanese, it is really easy to understand, as she posts videos on how to use the patterns, too.

Photos were taken by my sister, she wanted me to use this one :).

Love, Jip.

Homemade nail and cuticle oil

This is my first 'beauty DIY'. It is a recipe for ordinary nail and cuticle oil. My friend got a bottle of  ''Sally's nail and cuticle oil '' (Holland) for her birthday. I put  it on my nails once and have been since then in love with nail oils. Because I could not find the product at my local drug store, I decided to make my own. And although there are millions of recipes on the internet, I decided to post my tutorial. So here we go !

This is what you'll need :

 -A small glass bottle (you can get these at any drugstore) ; -Do not try to clean an empty nail polish bottle. I    tried this and it didn't work out. There was still nailpolish in the bottle left ..-
 -Extra vergin olive oil or baby oil (you can use almost any kind of oil for this) ;
 -Some perfume of your choice, I chose my grandmothers 'Gloria Vanderbilt'.

Step 1.

Pour some olive oil into the glass bottle. Make sure you don't spill it on the floor or table, mommy won't be happy ;)

Step 2.

Spray a little perfume in the filled bottle and shake it well.

Step 3.

Your homemade nail and cuticle is now done and ready for use! Put some oil on your nails and cuticles and rub it in. You can pad-dry it a little and than let it 'dry' overnight. If you're in a hurry (like in the morning before school starts), you can rub it in and than wash your hands with water and soap so you won't be dripping oil onto your exercise books :). Enjoy !

Love, Jip.
