DIY : Fun Food Labels

If you're anything like me , you get really excited about eating healthy and head to the closest grocery to stack up on organic vegetables , dried fruits , raw nuts , soya beans . . . but then half way through the week you forget why and it's back to Pop Tarts!

So in an effort to stick to my regiment, i made these cute food labels to remind me that "My body is a temple if i treat it as one"!

Guilt free snacks

Food Facts!

Use paper tape as labels

Start scribbling

Almonds are good for the Heart!

DIY : Peg and Candy Wrappers Deco

Wooden pegs can be used in more ways than one . I made this quirky unit out of pegs and vintage looking wrappers from candy i bought in Cannes.

I would also imagine hanging pegs all over a wall and clip some family portrait pictures .

DIY : Gypsophila Frame

A very good friend of mine got me this cute frame from Zara Home , the worn out lining and vintage design are too beautiful to be distracted by a portrait picture so that's how i got the idea of framing Gypsophila (aka Baby's Breath) because no flower whispers hopeless romantic like this one. Sigh*

Faux-Vintage Vase , A Tribute to Dame Liz

Her over publicized personal life might have turned us off but no one can deny that Elizabeth Taylor was a timeless beauty and a pioneering fashionista. Who can forget her trend setting headpieces

As a tribute to this legend, i incorporated the looks that made her famous in this faux-vintage tin vase. 

Using glue, stick the cutouts randomly around the vase

Scrunch the napkin to add creases , it gives the tin a "used" finish

Using mod podge, cover the tin with the napkin....

When it's almost dry, start scratching some off 

Let it dry naturally
