Deco Nails

Just the other day i really wanted to make some deco nails, after looking at some of the fake nails they have in 'Popteen'. Here are some I made...

I just wanted to make them simple, I dont like them to be too over the top it's hard to even use your hands properly! But then again some people like lots of bling!

Two weeks on the couch

Over the last school holidays, I spent 2 weeks on the couch following ankle surgery. I was able to make a few things I've had planned for ages. Above is a little bag for my niece.
I also made her a cute headband.

This one cracks me up. A Starbucks iced coffee made from Swarovski crystals! I found the bead kit on Rakuten Borderless after searching for 3 years after I saw it in the Japanese bead magazine "Friend". It even comes with coffee scent which you drop inside the completed cup. The Japanese think of everything. I also made a slice of chocolate cake and added a resin cream swirl. This was given to my sister for her recent 40th birthday.

A cute little kimono made from a chirimen craft kit. I love the colours.

This is supposed to be a New Year decoration. We got the idea from a display in the Liz Lisa shop in Macau. We secretly took a photo of it. I think it turned out quite well. I handmade all the decorations.

P!nk Concert

We recently went to P!nk's funhouse concert. Probably one of the best
concert's iv'e ever been to. The circus themed sets are awsome as well as her dancers
and costumes. And of course she sang really well. Her circus acts she does
from the air are really well done too,It's well worth your money.
I wanted to upload a video but it didn't work!
