White Winter Scarflace
Here is a new SCARFLACE I made.
I also just made up that word! 

Scarflace: mix between a scarf and necklace!

I have had this pretty white yarn for a while and wanted it to put it to work.
It was super simple to make, I hope to put up a tutorial later this week!

What do you have laying around that you can recreate or come up with? If you have something new that you are very proud of, email me and we can do a feature post with your great idea! 

Happy creating!!

30 for 30 Challenge: Watch This Space!

With my 30th birthday just around the corner, this challenge seemed a great idea as I am "wardrobe fund challenged" for the time being and only appropriate with the 30, 30, 30!
I came across a great style blog called Kendi Everyday which is a style blog where she came up with this great idea called Style Remixing! Check out her outfits on her blog, and this is how she describes the 30 for 30...
not sure when I will start this but I will decide soon!!

The "30 for 30" Philosophy
In December 2009 I started a style blog to document my daily style journey. By April 2010, I’d run out of funds and had lost the original intent of my blog: to remix the contents of my closet. I introduced the idea of remixing what was in my closet by the idea of the 30 for 30 Remix. "30 for 30" simply meant that I would take 30 items and remix only those items into 30, (hopefully) stylish outfits.

The whole point of the remix is to show myself and readers that with a little bit of creativity, you can make what you have work for you.

Interested in joining in? If you don’t have 30 items in your closet, no problem. The best part of remixing is working with what you’ve got. If you’ve got it, let’s remix it. If you have more than 30 items, pick the items that make sense for this remix. This is a challenge to help you learn to shop your closet and to shop smartly. By being well-versed in what you already have, you will become a better shopper.

Here are the rules:

1. Pick 30 items or less from your closet. Shoes are included, but accessories and jewelry are not.

2. Remix the 30 items into 30 different outfits.

That's it! Well not entirely so..

3. Don't shop for 30 days.

Why in the world would I add insult to injury, you ask? Because of two reasons: 1) so you'll learn to shop your own closet and 2) so you'll appreciate it. So many times I've run out and bought a new dress for one event or I bought something because I felt lacking and not what was in my closet. Obviously, this is not the best solution to a problem. I have found that when I limit myself with shopping, with 30 items, I become so much more aware of what I have versus what I need. By the end of the 30 days, I am ready to shop, but with new eyes of what I really need.
Apartment Decor Without Painting
One of the saddest part about apartment living is that many times you can't paint or add the personal touches that you would want to if it was your own home. Well, I recently was watching the Nate Berkus show where he talked about adding fabric to a wall with liquid starch! You can frame it, line a wall, or whatever your creativity dreams up and it comes off easily with a damp cloth when you want to remove it (which Nate also mentions is a great idea for decorating an apartment) 

Here is the idea from his show and obviously you could use any pattern of fabric that would work for your style. The possibilities are endless!

Here are a few more project ideas...

These I found through another great blog Just Flew The Coop where she describes how to do this and remove it.

How to Use Liquid Starch to Apply Fabric to a Wall

Fabric wall coverings are an attractive alternative to standard wallpapers. They are also easy to remove and do not damage the wall, making them a good wall-covering choice for renters who are stuck with boring white walls. The easiest way to apply fabric to the walls is to use liquid starch. This also has the benefit of not damaging the fabric so that you can wash it and reuse it in another project when you do decide to remove it from the wall.
Difficulty: Moderately Easy


Things You'll Need:

  • Measuring tape
  • Liquid starch
  • Fabric
  • Paint tray
  • Paint roller

  1. Measure the height of your walls. Cut the fabric into lengths that equal this height.
  2. Pour liquid starch into a paint tray. You can also use a shallow pan.
  3. Roll the starch onto the top half of the wall with your paint roller. Apply an even coat.
  4. Attach the top of the fabric to the top of the wall, smoothing it flat with your hands. Apply starch to the bottom of the wall and finish smoothing the fabric on.
  5. Apply a coat of starch to the entire surface of the fabric that is now attached to the wall. Smooth out any wrinkles with your paint roller or hand as you do this. Repeat the entire process until the walls are covered.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can remove the fabric by dampening it with a sponge then pulling it off.
  • Protect furniture and carpet to avoid damage from drips.
