This is a pair of old shoes I had lying around.. I felt they were a bit boring so I rarely wear them. hehe… I think a lot of people have a similar problem, there are always something we don’t want to wear / use, but we are reluctant to throw it away or be wasteful. It is a good idea to give them a new birth with alterations and decoration!
All we need to snazz up these shoes is some lace, two heart-shape cabochons, and some pearls.
First, wrap the heart-shape cabochons with some lace and sew it tight at the back.
Then, string up the pearls and sew them around the cabochons.
Sew some pearls on the ribbon (or shoe!) randomly.
Finally, stick the cabochons on the ribbon.
Imagine your fingernails sparkling when they are typing on the keyboard or flipping the pages of a book! Pretty fingernails really make one feel very happy! Think Sanrio, “Small gift, big smile.” In times like these it’s the sweet, inspired things that really go a long way.
So let’s go on a trip to the nail salon I frequent in Hong Kong! I’m planning to get some gel nails with 3D acrylic nail art and Swarovski crystals.
Amazingly the nail painter accomplished my rough sketches to wonderful gel nails!
I found the patterns in some Japanese nail art magazines which the nail salons provided.
But if those magazines can not satisfy your crazy thought about nail art, it is surely more fun to design your own cute nail tips! Miseducated girls are all about inspired lives and diy — I’m sure you have many ideas to use.
You can change your nails in honor of a holiday or occasion; how about a Christmas version with snowman and Christmas tree?
Just draw whatever you would like on your nails and simply write some descriptions about the colours and what kind of stone you prefer.
Use the ideas in magazines as an inspiration, but most importantly, have fun and create whatever you like!
Once I saw the milk chocolate camera on Fuji’s official website, I knew I had to decorate it with sweets and delicious desserts as much as I could! haha
Here I bought some very cute plastic sweets (cabochons) from shops at Yu Chau Street in Hong Kong. The street is very popular for its accessory shops. You can find a broad variety of components with different styles, which can be used in DIY (such as earrings, brooches, etc.) or to customize anything you like!
This is my nude camera and the components.
Finally I squeezed all the sweets and cream on it! haha!!!! Love it so much! 😀
My boyfriend nearly cried after seeing the new look of the camera (that HE had bought me). He thinks it is to abnormal for one to carry such a cluttered, exaggerated camera to take photos. hehe.. but then I read the information about Miseducated, “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” – Dr. Seuss, hoho! That’s right! I know my boyfriend really doesn’t mind my crazy works. It’s really important for us to be who we are or else we will lose our own personalities and the ability to imagine and create new things! 😀
