i have a holiday work party coming up on the 4th. its a celebration of hannukah & the new year. of course, my dillemma is what to wear. i want to try to replicate this look, but with tights & 86 the shades, since the party is at night.
& maybe its a great opportunity to try this golden, smokey eye:
even though i followed this recipe to the tee, my dough ended up like falling apart. granted, i don't have a mixer, maybe that has something to do with it. but byofriend came to the rescue and helped me kneed it back together so we could cut out shapes to bake & decorate. of course, here in israel there are no cute, christmas-themed cookie cutters so i used stars & heart's.
crumbled m&m's, oreo hershey bar &
mint, dark chocolate for toppings
i melted already-ready vanilla icing & added a drop of food coloring to make pink & light green
they came out dangerously delishious!!!
i have seriously already eaten like 5 in a span of 1 hour...
seriously just sat and pinned on pintrest for like 3 hours.
i had applied a week ago for an invite and sure 'nuff it was in my inbox this morning and i was ecstatic to begin creating boards and pinning away! i had heard it was addictive, but i didnt know what i was getting into. for the mean time, i created 12 borads, some of which include "creatures," "body art" & "style cravings."
ill leave you with one of my favorite photos found today....
this weekend boyfriend an i spent a few dollars and a few hours to turn our kitchen table from blah to blue. the boring wooden look had been bothering me for a while, but i didnt know what color i wanted to paint it. we finally went to the hardware store and found a grayish blue, almost violet color paint to transform our table.
now i need to decide if i want to finish it off with a glossy coat....
ive reopened my shop! its not something huge, but i am selling a few items that ive created or treasures that i have found in the local markets here in israel. i hope you can find something you like!
i have expressed my love obsession for etsy many times on the blog, here. there are endless pages to browse through and countless sellers to read about. i love reading about shop owners and what were their inspirations to begin creating and selling.
one feature that i found today was on a woman named courtney and her kick-ass shop called doloris petunia. read about her here & see below some of her unbelievable creations. and tell me its not clever that her shop slogan is "because one-of-a-kind is the new black."
