Hippie hair wrapping :)

Standard

Back when I was just a little girl, hair wrapping was very popular. At the many fleamarkets I went to, there was always a little stand where women were wrapping childrens hair in lovely colors. I’ve had it done many times, usually in bright colors. I forgot about it until it recently popped up in my head. Since I’m a bit of a hippiegirl, I thought it would be nice to do it again, except for more natural colors this time, I mean, I’m a bit childish but I don’t want to exaggerate.. 😉

I used two different colors for this one and added some beads in the end. You could also use for example feathers, to make it even more hippie-ish 🙂

The one on the right I did with woolen string, it’s one string with different colors. When you use wool, be aware its a lot thicker than normal thread/string.

And heres how you do it:

(I have never made a video before so forgive me for the funny faces :P)
You can use multiple colors and put beads in there, love it! Enjoy 🙂

The JoeyBra, handy or horrible?

Standard

Don’t you just hate going clubbin’ and having no place to put your phone or money without having to carry around a handbag? Aussies Mariah and Kyle developed the JoeyBra, a bra for women with a little pocket on the side to put your IPod or IPhone in, or some money. The bra itself look quite pretty and as its shown it looks quite handy as well. I, myself have found myself having coins stuck to my boobs when I woke up in the morning. It had seemed a good idea to put notes in there so I didn’t have to carry a bag, but had forgotten they would give you back coins after buying something. So when I had my first glance at the JoeyBra it seemed like the perfect bra for me.

But then I had a think about it. The bra has only one pocket. So us women would have to choose between putting in.. phone? bankcards? money? warm lipstick? keys? auch! IPod? Or would it be that the bigger the boobs, the more you could carry around? Somehow it also doesn’t seem too elegant to take money out of your bra (believe me, I’ve been there) or even worse, your vibrating phone.

But, that been said, the girl in the video does present it pretty well wearing a perfect dress for it, see how it works!

What do you think girls? Is the JoeyBra what you’ve been waiting for or is it a no-go? And also guys, would you be pleasantly suprised when a women grabs some money out of her top?

The day I gave pink another chance

Standard

I never wear pink. It makes me look like a 12 year old. Today I came home and mum had put a pink shirt in my closet. It’s always nice to get something new, even when it’s second hand. I never really buy new clothes. The clothes I have are either second hand, borrowed, old or were on sale. I believe we don’t need to keep buying clothes, but could also be very happy when we trade them or add a new accessory. So what I get I give a try. My friends have different styles, so when I get clothes from them I try to put a different twist to it. It usually works out. So today, after years of blacks, blues, reds and greens I gave pink another chance.

Head scarfs, the new fashion trend. I LIKE. 

Long necklaces, I love them! 

Lots of love,smiles and happiness,

For the love of Green

Standard

Welcome spring! Welcome Back sunshine! I’ve missed you. Spring has started and my mood has changed. I don’t spend whole afternoons in bed anymore, listening to the rain ticking on the windows and hot chocolate to keep me warm. Finally it’s the time again to sit on the balcony, attempting to get a tan and listening to birds singing. With positive weather come happy clothes, this spring we see the colourful jeans everywhere we go. And I love them! I’m just not a big fan of extremely bright colours, but I can’t say no to a nice pastel green / yellow pair of pants! Here’s the look that I love most with the best of spring 2012.


Lots of love,smiles and happiness,

Gypsy LOVE

Standard
Gypsy LOVE

I love the gypsy / bohemian style! I love the vintage, the colours, the jewelery, the long wide dresses, the feathers and everything about it. It makes me want to smile. These rings here are awesome. Big and colourful! I like!

The blue and the feathers remind me of summertimes and festivals. Places where everyone is happy and you find many, many different kinds of people, with different ways of dressing and expressing themselves. Festivals make people connect and respect eachother for who and what they are. Brilliant. It should be like that everywhere, all the time.

The layers are perfect for when it’s cold, in the summer you wear colourful dresses.

I love to stroll around thriftstores to find wonderful secondhand clothes for little money.Why consuming more and more when you can re-use and recycle perfectly good stuff?

Mary-Kate Olsen has great syle!
