I hope you are having a wonderful festive season. My family had an early Christmas dinner this year, so I thought I would share the decor with you. I tried to keep things minimalistic and simple.
I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend. As many of you may already know, I recently celebrated five years of blogging. To commemorate the occasion, my friends and I had a little bonfire picnic. I also filmed a simple vlog that captures the night perfectly. You can watch it at the bottom of this post.
As you can see, I never do things in halves. The decorations you choose will contribute massively to the whole aesthetic and mood. I wanted everything to feel warm and homely, but at the same time have some pops of colour. To make this happen, I used lots of flowers, fairly lights, pillows, candles and picnic rugs.
I hope you are all having an incredible week. It's almost the weekend, so hold in there <3 I recently posted a velvet choker DIY that you seemed to love. Thank you for all the positive feedback on here, Twitter & Instagram. I really appreciate it. If you haven't read it you can view it here.
Chokers are an absolute love of mine and a definite must have this season. Since you loved my last choker post, I decided to film a suede choker video for you to give you more detailed explanations and inspiration. If I'm completely honest with you there is no point in buying a suede choker as they are so easy to make and style. I bought some suede chord from Spotlight & made these 10 chokers to suit my style.
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Thick velvet chokers have been the epitome of celebrity fashion for the last couple of seasons. However, the mysterious part is nowhere appears to sell any currently. I have decided to take these important fashion matters into my own hands. Let's be real. You know you need a velvet choker. Let's do this!
Hope you are having a lovely day. I know I'm never ready for Christmas until my house looks incredibly festive. After that, I become like a six year old on Christmas Eve. Today's post is a really simple, last minute Christmas DIY. Since it's a last minute DIY, I've made sure only to use items I already have at home, so you can too.
What you need:
Create the circle shape of your wreath using the wire. I have chosen to use lots of different strands together, just to ensure that my wreath will retain its shape. Cut off any extra wire using the side cutter or another wire cutting implement. Twist the ends around the wire to secure in place.
Begin adding your Christmas decorations to the wreath. I'm adding some silver beads by wrapping them around the wreath, securing it in place by tucking it under other beads.
Add lots of different Christmas decorations until you are happy with your wreath. I have chosen to add one type of decoration at a time, and then fill in the spaces with other decorations. This helps to make the wreath more symmetrical.
Once you have added all of your beautiful Christmas decorations, tie a ribbon at the top so you can hang it.
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all have an incredible day and it exceeds your expectations. I hope you also spend it with people who love and care about you.
Hope you are all having a lovely day. Christmas is the perfect time to try out different DIY's and let your creativity shine. With this DIY you can literally let it shine :P I'll be showing you how to create a gorgeous twinkling tinsel star. All you will need is a few things that you're likely to have lying around at home and re-purpose them.
When choosing wire try to use wire that is pliable, but still sturdy enough to retain it's shape. Using a few pieces of wire together can help with this. If you cannot find wire like this, follow these steps and I have an extra little suggestion at the bottom to solve this.
Create a star shape with your wire. This may take a few tries to get the perfect shape. Drawing a stencil on a piece of paper and shaping it to follow the stencil can also be quite helpful. When you have the shape you want, twist the ends of the star shape to hold it together. Use side cutters or another form of wire cutters to cut off any excess wire you may have.
Twist your tinsel around the wire until it is completely covered. To make it easier to twist around, keep your tinsel in a ball and unroll as you go.
Twist your fairly lights around the tinsel to give it a light and sparkly effect. Your sparkling Christmas star is now complete and ready to hang.
You could also add some candles in the middle of the star for a table centre piece. This is great for Christmas lunch or dinner to add something extra to your table. This suggestion is perfect for those you who don't have write that is sturdy enough to retain it's shape.
Have a fabulously festive day beautifuls!
P.S. Vlogmas has now begun over on my Youtube channel. There'll be lots of adventures, Christmas ideas and general festive activities. You can watch Vlogmas 2015 here.
The festive season is a wonderful time to express creativity and create a warm, homely place. This year so many people appear to be becoming highly enthusiastic about Christmas right through the month of November. There is nothing wrong with getting excited about Christmas early, and being organised for December. Quite frankly I am just as excited as the next person. Instead of providing you with Christmas inspiration in December, My Violet Delights is beginning this week. Just to give you lots of inspiration, motivation to be creative, along with a bit of festive spirit in time for December.
Today's DIY is incredibly simple, but as always also incredibly effective. Not only will this Christmas tree make a lovely table centre piece for you home throughout the festive season, but it will also help it smell beautiful.
While everyone on the other side of the world are getting excited about their amazing Fall decor, it's time for our very own Spring DIY. Spring florals are made for each other. For this DIY I've chosen to work with some fake pink cherry blossoms, but if you have another type you would prefer, go for it! This DIY is actually incredibly easy for those of you who haven't made anything like this before.
I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend so far. For this week's video I decided to get into the Halloween spirit, along with having quite a bit of fun and hilarious moments. I am once again letting people use my face as their canvas of 'interesting creativity'. This time my little sister and boyfriend have the task of completing a Halloween makeup look in just 3 minutes. I honestly cannot decide who won, so I would love your opinion. Enjoy!
I will definitely have to do a video again with these two again, as it was so much fun and they constantly had me laughing.
Have a wonderful weekend beautifuls!
It's time for another thrifted styling post. I bought this blazer from my local Vinnies (Thrift Shop) for $5.00. Before styling I did a little updating and reshaping. I removed the shoulder pads, took in the sleeves and back of the coat. This created a more flattering silhouette.
