Watch Delemna- Preferences with Metals

Ever since my dearest dear Sparkly Bracelet Swatch, I’ve never had a fixed daily worn watch (semi including Ammi’s red metal Swatch hand me down that lasted me two years).

It was this gorgeous silver and sparkly watch that looked like a bracelet. It had those clear beads that were practically prisms with how many teeny tiny rainbows they broke all the light that passed through them into.

LOL. It’s name’s apparently First Romance

I loved it! And wore it for a good three or four years before the bracletty strap finally broke and the beads went flying everywhere. (Still had it repaired and wore it for another three to four months before the OTHER side broke D: ) Anyhoo, it was retired and it took me forever to finally pick out another swatch to replace it with.

It had to be neutral. It had to be silver ish. It had to be- fancy fabulous.

Now that I look back on it- I NEVER picked out a swatch- no, wait, I did.

Silver. Pinkish. A bit of detailing, but not nearly as ostentatious as the first one. But neutral for me. Too tiny for my taste now, but I apparently liked the thought of a dainty watch back then.

I can’t find an actual picture of it, but it looked a BIT like this. Less pink.

It had the same inner dial thingie!

I was even considering this one, but it was too similar to my old one.

Anyhoo, that’s it for my old swatch indecisiveness. Here’s my take on metal preferences now~

Sooo the deal with me and which colored metals I wore.

It’s basically silver versus gold, even thought there are so many other metallic colors now.

Back then, it was always silver. Silver rings, watch, earrings, all that. It had to be silver if it was concerning jewelry. I viewed gold as an “aunty” color for the longest of times. I couldn’t wear golden watches one BIT. Nor was I particularly fond of any other jewelry being gold either.

But now, years later, as I’m older, and matured just a tad, gold is the fabulous metal, and I love it. Yo, mah bling is gold man. #BlingBling

Although my sudden acceptance of gold is great and all, my current preference, especially concerning watches, would be rose gold. That pinkish golden color.

It’s gorgeous! And now I want, and am sorta already picking out a rose gold watch 🙂

There’s this one from Claire’s that Ayesha got at Budapest after I pushed her to.

Such bling and bedazzledness.

She wasn’t so sure about it, and I was originally going to buy it, but the curse with me and Claire’s on that trip was that every time I visited that store, I had already dropped most of that day’s money shopping! So I didn’t have enough to buy it then -____-

So I pushed Ayesha to get it, and she did. Now I’m considering getting it too.

But there’s this one I like a bit better at the moment, thought originally I was equally indecisive as which to get.

Still bling, pink, and GREY.

 

I like the random grey stripe through the strap, and the dial’s design intrigues me more than the other classical dudesy dial thing. Especially since none of those three tiny dial things even WORK >.> I don’t like the idea  of those fake ones being on it if they haven’t any functionality.

Plus, with the grey, if I do decide to wear  silver with this it’ll go better than having all silver jewelry and a completely rose gold chunky watch on.

I’m not sure yet. And who knows if I’m even getting these? I’d have to get them shipped from the UK, and I’m not sure if I’m up to pay the additional delivery charges =P

Meeeeh, so that’s it for now. Gotta pooof~!

DIY Custom PaperClips, Designs & Ideas

So today i did many things.

One of which was to FINALLY get Dan Brown’s Inferno in Hard-back, as my mother loves the author and was willing to pay for that. So thats GREAT.

While at SSB, i thought id also check out other books and maybe just maybe get Game of THrones book II (no idea what the name is =$ ) or just look around or maybe the Life of Pi. Unfortunately, as the book store has become eviler, they rearranged the book shelves. if they were something like this (birds eye view)=

I I I I I I
I I I I I I

before, now there something like THIS=

___ _____ _____ ______ _____ _____
___ _____ _____ ______ _____ _____ and it SUCKS. now i have no idea where the books i like are kept. and now youre wondering, ‘ok, great. so just ask those helpful guys who work there, duh.’ However, those guys are so not so helpful. they dont know where anything is kept in their own shop.

when i was assigned to read whuthering heights over the winter break for my literature class (an assignment i never did, btw) i spent a grand total of five minutes attempting to find the book. impatient as i am, i finally cracked and asked for “assistance”. It took them FIFTEEN minutes to circulate around the ENTIRE floor of the store (then it was two stories, now three. more on that LATER. funny tale, that…). all to come back to the shelf i had been sifting through. then another ten minutes to find the book. grr.

Soo yeah. i got the book and while i was at it, i was gonna get a clear paged folder in neon colors for my comics but due to surprise budget cuts as my brother got himself a new mouse (he installed an old video game that apparently requires a swivel mouse or something like that) so i had to leave them behind.

So instead i found post its, colorful thumbpins for my bulletin board, and PAPER CLIPS.

And here i am.

I remember WEEKS ago, on 9gag, i saw this cute picture to bend paper clips into heart shapes, and so i googled it, and found the pictures and used them to make a cute little pink heart paper clip that im using as a book mark now. (i love using paper clip bookmarks, their cute, colorful, jazz it up, and dont fall out easily =P )

since i had to google those pics only cuz i never saved them when i first saw them, and regretted that later, i saved them, and thought id post them here.

pink heart clips

And heres how to do it in an easy one two three step guide. well…its so easy that there IS no step three =D

How-to heart shaped paper clips intstuctns

and then, inspired, i searched for other shapes, like stars, or four leaved clovers or flowers, but couldnt find any =( when i do, they will most DEFINATELY be up here. so have no fear, i am on the hunt!

but i did find websites that sold already made fancy paper clips like leaf shaped ones (loved. very naruto =P not a big fan of that though. just find it tolerable NOW. before i used to hate it.) and speech bubbles, like in comics. those wouldve rocked. and loads of other designs too, like elephants, dogs, cats, swirly hearts, flowers, etc. just google for stuff like that.

i did however find some really cool ideas and came up with my own to design and customize a regularly shaped paper clip.

1. Like taking a jumbo paper clip and adding ribbons to one end to use as a griped reliabler bookmark or just to jazz up an assignment like so

simple bookmark paperclips

or something like this

BrillianglyBland-RibbonPaperclips

or as i found on another website, but didnt save the pic (sowwy), make a cute little bow and then loop that into position where these plain ribbons are tied, so it sticks out from the book your reader, or where ever else you decide to put it, like a card. and that particular blogger put buttons in the centre of the bows with some glue. i think DIRECTLY glueing the button, like a huge one, on the paper clip would also look cool.

or something very pre-school, or simple, with less hassle, would be to cut out two identical shapes on paper or stiffened fabric and cut out a cartoon character or design or letter or whatever and sandwhich the tip of the paper clip in between with glue.

or for the extremely lazy, or artistically challenged, or legit preschoolers as a fun little project to encourage reader (or other grades too. i just weally like kindergarten and preschool =3 ) use stickers with the same method =P

you could also add things like glitter, sequins, beads, and other gorgeously girly and artsy ideas =) even tiny little origami might work out great!

so yeaaaah. those are my little ideas and shit. gosh, this took so long to post, as the internet rebelled against this, and posting those photos was also pretty troublesome and nerve racking (esp. paired with the fluctuating helpfulness of the internet conection.. -.-” ). and as ive said, technology is not my forte =P

BUUUT yeaaaah, thats it, and great, im done WO-HOO!

freeeedooooommm

liberationnn

sleeppp…maybe. but ice cream first ❤

kay, then, laterrr!

Exiled From Ireland&The Irish Love Me

Obviously.

Anyways, i have a dream where im in this plain boring area, with hills and a sun above them, and nothing else. all in shades of yellow, green, and orange (yes, even the sun.) and yet somehow i know im in ireland.

Scene shift. at this absolutely gorgeous mountain top, with magnificent mountains as far as the eye can see. its a crisp winter morning, but insanely sunny. my perfect winter weather. we’re in this amazing manor, castle, thing. all grey carved stone, and beautiful. its brilliant. and then, there are all these random people scattered here and there. and theyre about to announce who got shuffled into which team with who. anyways, ayesha and i are super excited, but ayesha’s flipping out with insane hand gestures and everything. (so very un ayesha like). shes going on about how cool itd be if she gets an actual french person on her team and they become great friends. and i want to make friends with whoevers on my team.

anways, they announce the teams, and group us all together. we then are supposed to hang out together as a team to improve our teamwork and get to know each other more. after a debate and all that time, i become really close friends with this irish guy on my team. we become bros. its awesome =) and then after that, when we get our own free time to spend with whomever we choose, i go find ayesha. shes ecstatic cuz she has a french chick on her team. so thats cool, sure why not, were both happy.

later on, i see ayesha hanging out (bothering) the frenchie girl, and its pretty obvious that shes  irritated. yet ayesha being oblivious to this, continues her pursuit of being best friends with the Croissant Lover. she goes on about our (ayesha and mine) lit references, how shes the Lady of Shallot, how she has always considers herself french, and french worthy, blah blah blah. anyways, im then hanging out with Irish-Guy (and i dont remember what he looked like much- possibly blonde with green eyes? im not sure…but i do remember that he was hot. buuut i wasnt into him. not then. yes, there IS a sequel dream! =D ) and we become closer friends.

the next time i see ayesha, she has irked the french chick to a terrible extreme where she snaps at ayesha. ayesha gets stunned and a bit confused and tries to appologize and then go on about how theyre such good freinds and forgive each other. Madam Mustache (..no she didnt have one..but-but still =P) gets more annoyed, and tells ayesha shes not worthy of calling herself french let alone being french, and how shes just an annoying little wanna be. ayesha gets angry now, and they proceed to a full scale riot yelling match fight thing. then this girl sues ayesha, and takes her to the french embassy. there, all the french also hate ayesha, and tell those in charge of our debate tournament training thing (the debating TTT =P ) that they hate her and will not tolerate her being in ireland where shes happy and where currently there are a lot of french people or something. the irsih are totally chill and are just like, ‘yeah, sure, cool, why dont we just exile her, yeah?’ and thus ayesha gets exiled from ireland.

now, we;re at this scene where ayeshas crossing the boarder. once again, in all shades of orange, green and yellow, strangely. so ayeshas leaving and she asks me to cross over with her, you know, lets ditch this popsickle stand kinda thing. (i would never call ireland a popsickle stand but you get the idea right? no offense..) and im fine with leaving (since i can come back. no exile for me =) ) but all these random irish people appear and they say no, i cant go because they like me and are attached to me. aw, im loved by the irish ❤ anyways, as this happens, my irish guy friend was standing by my side the entire time and when the ayesha asks me to leave with her, he hugs me. like, NO. she wont go. it was cute.

all and all, this is a pretty morality type dream of mine.

the irish will love me. the irish are cool and chill. ayesha doesnt belong in ireland. ayesha is to be hated by the french. and, apparently, ayesha doesnt have what it takes to call herself and to BE french. yowch. and obviously, the sun is secretly green, orange and red in ireland. i feel so much more enlightened now. =)

Burned Gorgeous Flower Embellishments

4873238162_372c120208Burned Gorgeous Flower Embellishments

I found this DIY project on how to make these, and honestly, its just SO EASY and i just ADORE the end result ❤ its cute, pretty, and so versatile that you could use this flower on anything! just click on the picture, and youll be leaded to the blog for instructions with pictures on hwo to recreate this beautiful invention.

Adding this flower onto an old dress, or belt, purse, or bag to make a huuuge difference and would make a something old seem much more new and festive. its just such a FUN idea. =D

i like it, cuz it involves absolutely no sewing skills- no matter how artsy i am, i cant sew ^_^ its easy enough to produce in a couple of minutes if you have all the equipment. i wanna make this now, and im thinking of adapting a small version and super gluing it to a pin to stick in my hair =) i also wanna make a big version for a corsage, so i could pin it to some of my purses and some scarfs too =) then i could also pin it onto my sash at school =)

sewing on or clipping on one of these pretty roses could totally change any outfit to a more dazzling, loud, elegant, fancy, formal, bold, attention grabbing, feminine element to it simply by using the right color, and size.

i do hope you guys try it, its just so INTERESTING that you all muuust =* but still, it seems cool, right? fun? something you just MUST try? …no, just me? ok… =S =P haha, i hope sharing this idea inspires others, as it does me =)

haha, and most exciting of all, it involves FIRE. eeek. i soooo wanna try it noooow! *___* yesh, i know im VERY violent =3
