Mini Stud Earrings | DIY

Hello! I am super excited for today´s DIY! These turned out to be one of my favorite pieces, to be honest. I have been using them non-stop every since I made them last week. They are super affordable, 100% customizable, and so much fun to make.  I think these will come on handy for everyone!

For materials:
-       Ear posts.
-       Rhinestones (got mine forever ago from a local nail supply store, they are online as well)
-       Nail polishes. Colors are optional. Watch video to see what nail polishes I used)
-       Epoxy glue, or any strong glue that can work fine with jewelry.
-       Rhinestone Picker (optional, but handy). Got some polymer clay already? Check this DIY out as well.
-       Pliers.
-       Block of foam (optional, but handy).

Here comes the fun part: How to do them! Happy DIY-ing and enjoy!

PS- I also kind of got inspired from this beauties right here:

DIY Rhinestone Picker | Monday Mani

Hi friends happy Monday! Today´s post is very short and quite frankly I was debating between posting it or not, because I think it doesn´t really need a tutorial, but then again, you never know and maybe this could be helpful for someone!

In hopes of that, here is it. Pretty simple, you just need a piece of Polymer Clay, and a toothpick. So, let´s start crafting so we can move on to painting!

Apple Sprinkle Cupcakes | Desserts for the weekend

Hi friends! Today I am sharing this very cheerful and colorful Apple logo cupcake idea. I don´t have many things of this brand, but I have to say, the few things I do, have lasted me a long time, and they are very user-friendly. On the other hand, I have always loved the little apple of the logo and I wanted to make some cupcakes with that in mind.

Since no one that I know (of those who end up eating what I bake) likes fondant, I wanted to incorporate color to the logo, so that´s why I thought of adding sprinkles.

They are easy to make, and you only need 3 things:
-Cupcake recipe here
-Whipping cream (mine was store-bought)
-And lots of sprinkles.
-Oh..and option but tweezers. They are not super essential, but if you bake a lot, comes on handy to just buy a pair of cheap tweezers wash them really well and use them only for baking. That is what I did.

Let´s start the fun. Happy bake-orating! (baking + decorating).

Floral Home Décor

Hi! To me, it´s amazing what a little nature can do to a room. “It” being natural or fake. It ads a bit of cozy and a bit of home feel to a room. And I also like sparkly wine.

I wanted to do something with this bottle of wine, and I had some fake flowers and tinny stones around, and so this was born.

It might not look super luxurious, but I think it´s a great alternative for when you don´t have a ton of space (like an office, small kitchen or a room) and still you want to add some color and nature!

All you need is an old bottle of wine (clean & w/out labels), fake nature (or real, up to you), tinny stones, scissors and pliers. Let´s get crafty:

**BTW Don´t you just love that I look like a Christmas Tree on that dress? Every time I wear it, I feel like one. LOVE IT!

Roses and Dots Reverse French Tip | Monday Mani

Hi and Happy Monday! Today I am super excited because this one turned out actually pretty well. I am combining the reverse French tip thing I have been seeing around everywhere lately and the two patterns these two ladies are wearing. I was watching this video and had to take a screenshot because I loved the roses next to the polka dots, and I just had to make it into nail art!

You won´t believe how easy they are to pain. Just a few nail polishes, a thin brush (super cheat on e-bay) and a couple of dotting tools (which you can totally create by using the back of an eye shadow brush and a sewing pin).

Things you´ll need and step-by-steps come in the video. So, let´s get the fun started & happy panting!
