Here for your entertainment are my favourite online finds of the week!
♡ This week I found my new favourite blog, Beckerman bite plate. They’re twin sister with the most amazing style imaginable.
♡ Mars is in retrograde, y’all.
♡ In search of the perfect vegan pancakes, I found this recipe. One word? Life-changing!
♡ Do you need to go on a Digital Detox? (My answer is a hells yes!)
♡ Janneke Storm was the photographer at The Blogcademy Brisbane and she is insane! I’ve been scrolling through her portfolio totally mesmerised.
♡ I really wanna give this spaghetti squash pizza crust a go!
♡ Joseph Gordon Levitt EVERYTHING
♡ Is anyone else crazy excited for Lena Dunham to host SNL tonight?!
♡ Kate’s post on how to be a happy blogger was just lovely!
Happy Friday! On the Gold Coast today it is blue skies and sunshine and where am I? Sat inside on the internet! Typical! But I did make a trip to the post office and had a little play with my dogs in the grass. You’ve just got to appreciate such beautiful days.
This morning, while getting dressed, the clear neon pink bag seemed way too simple and plain. So I did what any self-respecting woman would do – covered in dollar store stickers! Amazeballs!
Isn’t it just Tacky Chic (and Acid Rain) perfection?!
Barbie shoe necklace: PIXIE and PIXIER; Top: Mr Price (similar); Skirt: Primark (similar); Bag: Jay Jays (similar) & DIY; Shoes: Doc Martens; Sunglasses: eBay
Probably not one for the minimalist but now it’s given me this need to cover everything in cute little stickers. I might actually carry a sheet in my bag and start a guerrilla stickering campaign of hearts and “Well Done!”
I’ve also been making a few new pieces, including this Pink toned Barbie shoe necklace, that will be appearing in the shop over the next few days, so check back soon!
There’s always time for the Power Pose!
Are you ready for the mind-boggling tutorial?!
Take some stickers and your bag…and get sticking!
If you was after something more permanent try covering them with a few layers of Mod Podge.
Oh jewellery! Clearly, running my own jewellery shop, I’m big on accessorising. I think that an outfit isn’t even an outfit until you’ve smacked on a couple (or ten) rings, a stack of bracelets, and your favourite necklaces. Accessories turn a simple outfit in a personal style statement. That’s why I love them so much!
It’s no surprise then, that my collection is mounting! Jewellery is something I collect. I pick up pieces from around the world. You receive it as gifts. It’s precious! So naturally, it’s something that should be stored in more artful ways than a lone box!
I’m a fan of displaying my favourite pieces. As a maximalist at heart, I love to see all the sparkles, colours, and textures glistening and adorning PIXIE and PIXIER HQ. On the corner of my desk I have this beautiful mirrored box filled with treasures and a vintage silver cake stand (that I thrifted for a mere $2!) to hold my current rotating accessories. It’s right in the entrance to my room so I can just pop my jewellery off there and stop trailing rings and necklaces in random places!
There are a lot of beautiful storage devices to test out. Go thrifting and look for interesting dishes, bowls and stands (I also use a spray painted toilet roll holder for my bangles!). Pick up some clear plastic storage boxes and colour co-ordintate your stash!
Or perhaps you could pick up a box of humble thumb tacks
, line the up on your wall and hang your most beautiful necklaces from them.
Amongst my collection there’s a ton of stuff that I also sell in my shop. I just can’t help but to make one for myself too!
How do you store your jewellery and accessories?
Jewel hoarder fo’ lyfe!
You may have noticed that I have curly hair. It’s big, it’s crazy, and I totally love it! Unfortunately, there’s not that many people how there who love their hair’s natural texture. We fight with it, attempt to “tame” it, and always think the grass is greener. So, I thought I’d share my quick (and insanely easy) styling technique in hope that more people will rock their natural do’s!
I’m a big fan of Moroccan Argan oil - it’s a light oil that the hair soaks right up so it doesn’t feel sticky or give an oil slick glean! I’ll double that up with some leave in Moroccan oil conditioner, a spritz of sea salt spray, and I’m good to go!
Curls really don’t take much effort at all! Just show them some love, keep ‘em moisturised, and sing a bit of India Arie!
