Time for disco dancing!

Christmas and New Year´s eve are coming up. I can´t believe how fast this year went by (and yes I say this every year). I do like to dress up for these occassions, although I don´t like to overdo it. No hours in front of the mirror for me. I was thinking about "a hint of glitter" to celebrate the beginning of 2012 and I found some pretty outfits online:

Glitter skirt on we heart it
Disco dancing shoes on Steffys pros and cons
Glitter dress for rock chicks on Hoard of trends

I wish you all happy holidays!

Shop update: Rabbit Brooches

I updated the shop with these cool rabbit brooches. The pin is 4 cm long and the pendant measures 19 mm. These brooches are available with different patterns and are such an easy was to brighten up a simple dress, vest or jacket. 

I like the preppy medal style of these brooches. I combine my brooch with a dark jacket and a checked button up shirt, as pictured above.

Gift wrapping

I love giving gifts to family and friends and I can really spend some time on wrapping a gift. I choose a special paper that I like, craft name tags or use colourful masking tape. The wrapping is part of the gift. 

On A creative mint I found some very inspiring ideas, such as using the Trader Joe´s bags as wrapping paper (too bad there´s no Trader Joe´s in Europe). Ofcourse you can find everything you need to craft on Etsy, Dawanda or in your local crafting shop, but use and re-use can even be more fun!

one and two were found on A creative mint and here are the links to three and four.
