The boy gave me this jumper a while back and
the headscarf is from a little vintage shop in Dublin
called The Harlequin

D.I.Y : Oversized Sport Luxe Crop Top

Hi Hi!
Today I was a little bored and decided I missed college work a little (not really)
SO I'm going to show you how to make an oversized mesh crop top.
I made a similar one for my end of year project but this one is a little simpler and
I hope you guys enjoy,


1. Roughly a meter of some sort of mesh material. I got mine from a local shop
but all major fabric suppliers should shave some too.
2. Measuring tape
3. pins
4. Scissors (Mine are fabric but any sharp ones will do)
5. Thread to match your mesh
5. Paper

Ok so this is the slight tricky part as making patterns isn't really straight forward as you need exact measurements BUT seeing as it is oversized top you can use this pattern to guide you and using a ruler
draw onto your paper. It doesnt have to be perfect. Just get the basic shape. The back will be the same as the front but lower the neckline 2 or 3 centimeters. 

Next place your patterns on on your material and cut!

Do the same with the sleeves and you should have all your pieces cut out.
Now it's time to put them together and sew.

Next you need to figure out how you want to have it close at the back.
You can use buttons, snap fasteners or even a ribbon. 
I'm using a 16 inch open end zip. So just turn in the ends, pin and then sew 
along the edge of the zip.

And then your pretty much done!! All I did then was turn up the hem, neckline and rolled up the sleeves.

New In: Romwe Make up brushes

Hi hi hi,

I cannot contain how excited I am at the moment. I have been waiting aages for
the postman to come with this little package and I am most definitely not disappointed.
It came to my attention a few weeks ago that Romwe did not only do clothes and accessories
but also make up brushes! I had to wait at least a week for them to come back in stock as they were
completely sold out. As of right now they are in stock and you can find them here (hurry)

I'm not going to lie I was completely skeptical about how good they were going to be
as they were only 13 euro for 24 (with a 20% discount) 
However, I was completely surprised as they are incredibly soft and well made. Delighted.
They come in a really nice wrap carry case and they all came individually wrapped.
My first impressions are just go and get them. I haven't even used them on my face yet (I will
keep you updated) but I know that I will never need another make up brush again in my life. 

SO, I hope you enjoy the pictures and If any of you guys have these or get them let me
know what you think,

Talk soon,
