DIY: Fabric Wrap Sandals

Ok, I've officially had it with Winter! Today was the coldest day ever. Well, in degrees celsius it wasn't, but with the wind coming from the north the cold is just unbearable! I can't tell you how much I long for Spring, my favorite season.. it seems so far away :(...
I miss Spring and Summer even more now I found this amazing DIY tutorial for fabric wrap sandals today! These sandals are so cute and perfect for Spring and Summer. It's a great way to spice up those boring sandals in the back of your closet. I know it's still very cold in some parts of the world, but it's never to early to start preparing for Spring! Get inspired!

Love,
Lucia

Outfit post #12: Keep it simple!

Hello ladies! How was everyone's weekend?!

Monday again! And again it has been days since I had the time to blog. It's almost March already, oh my, February passed me by in an eye blink, ridiculous! With all the busy and good things happening lately I don't have anymore time for relaxation and the good stuff, boohoo. For today I just want to keep it simple. I'm working the entire day in my studio (pictures are made in my studio, no time for a fancy decor :D hehe) and this is what I'm wearing...nothing special without make-up.. just a "daily life at the studio" outfit. I got this cropped sweater from my mom last week, it's vintage and I'm SO in love with it! Isn't it totally cute?!

Gotta get back to what I was doing. Hope you girls like this outfit! Wishing you all a very nice week!

Love,
Lucia

Wednesdays' Inspiration: Lace

I've always loved lacy things. Lace clothing, lace accessories, lace blankets.. anything with a touch of lace! It's very versatile and can be combined with any style. Lately I'm working a lot with vintage lace since I started my Upcycled Vintage journey and I just can't get enough of it! This morning I was looking for some inspiration, which I want to share with you girls!

Wishing everyone a lovely Wednesday!

Love,
Lucia

The benefits of Lavender

One of my favorite scents is lavender. I have been using it a lot lately in my daily life. Did you know that lavender has many amazing benefits and healing powers? Lavender can help cure a lot of things and is an essential to have in everyone’s household. Lavender essential oil can go a long way. Here are some magical tricks you can do with it.

Beat Insomnia – Place a few drops on your pillow before bed, or make your own lavender sleep pillow with muslin fabric and dried lavender buds.

Sooth Headaches – Massage the oil onto your temples, back of neck, and forehead to relieve any tension headaches.

Heal Wounds – Dilute lavender oil with olive or jojoba oil, mixing 1 part lavender to 10 parts of another oil and apply to wounds.

Cure Digestive Problems – Have a go at making some lavender tea at home to help sooth digestive problems and to relieve gas problems.

- Place one tablespoon full of culinary lavender buds into half a pot of water and boil

- After the water has boiled, place into the tea cup with your choice of tea bag (I love mixing them with earl grey tea) and sip away!

Ease Anxiety and Depression – Having lavender around the house can help soothe your mind. Place lavender stems with their buds in little vases – I usually place a big bunch in my bathroom and let the scent linger.

New Project: Uncycled Bohemian Vintage Clothing

O.M.G. I can't believe I didn't blog for almost 10 days! Time isn't flying, it's passing by in hyperspeed!! I'm sorry for the lack of posts, I have no idea where my days go. So many thingd happened!! The last 2 weeks have been hectic but also very exciting. Times passed by so fast because there were too many nice things happening. First of all, I had an interview with an Icelandic Fashion Week journalist (hello!!!!!) that wanted to write about my work. Also I've been contacted by 4 companies who want to sell my work in their stores by Spring.. 3 in the US and 1 in the Netherlands. I just can't believe it's getting so serious. I've worked so hard for this to happen and now at once, within 2 weeks, I get so many offers I don't even know if I can keep up with it!

Also I've been working on several projects! One I wanted to share with you girls today! A few weeks ago I was contacted by a vintage store from Amsterdam where I shop frequently. They were looking for co-operation on a new project for upcycled vintage. Very exciting, because I was looking for a new challenge as well (like I don't have enought to do already, mental!). Anyway, we started last week. They provide vintage clothing and I upcycle and recycle it into One of a Kind Bohemian pieces. I've always loved upcycling old vintage and forgotten clothing, bringing it back to life. The collection will only be sold online, probably via Etsy. Let me see where it goes.. maybe this could grow into something great!

Ok, enough of my speech! I wanted to share my favorites. Any feedback is very welcome.

Love,
Lucia

February Inspirational Quotes

Oh my, I can't believe it's February already! Times flies so fast! I remember like yesterday that I was running around on primary school...and now, almost 30 (yep, born 1985 here). I just can't believe all those years passed in an eyeblink. Once every day I realize myself that life is so short. That's why I enjoy life every second, even when bad things are happening or I'm having a bad day. Really, enjoy every moment!

I want to start my first Febuary post with some lovely inspirational quotes. Hope you girlies get some inspiration out of these wise words! Oh, by the way, if you want to know where I get all these beautiful quotes from, check my Wise Words Pinboard ... a collection of almost 500 lovely quotes to get inspired by!

Enjoy your Sunday!

Love,
Lucia
