MORNING LOVE NOTE TO HOUSTON

image

When you found someone with the same kind of crazy 😂

Why do I love thee? There’s so many ways and there’s infinity to count.  Maybe it’s the way you come up with outrageous flavor for my lipstick (millipede and salmon),  or the way you created super weird burp-inducing fictional food , or the way you laugh with me and notice little details in messenger stickers.

Conversation always flows with you. From walk to park with Fred,  food and it’s components, (i’ve never been so interested about sorbet and gelato), to a bit of politics, effective stain removers, to exchanging videos of hilarious stuff, watching unicorns f*rt rainbows.  You always make my heart smile, baby boy.

The way you see things in my perspective, like when you say how good the papercraft will be at shop,  twirling,  just like how I envision it would be.

And that annoyingly cute same exact messages at the same time.

When I asked you if you like my choker and you agreed whole-heartedly and swear it’s beautiful,  not knowing what choker actually is. Coming up with a perfect praise for my blouse design  when I pointed it out.  😂😂😂

Remember when we installed Between,  and we spend the better half of an hour looking at the sticker of egg-like blob on the tiny tub,  it’s feet wiggling,  we discussed it like it’s the most special thing.

I can’t remember the exact moment I fall for you. Coz I can’t remember a single moment i’m not in love with you.

To someone in Houston, in a house with trees in front lol
Good Morning,  Lovey!  💋💋💋 please don’t forget to get some heavy cream for pralines, chocolate chips for fudge,  peanut butter and bread starter.  You said yesterday you need those to make sweets today.  But first,  lemon bars.  Lol

Loving you from more than
8,000 miles away… H

DIY LACE AND TATTOO CHOKER

Hello Everyone!!! we’re having a stormy week here in my little island, but I hope you’re all having super fun summer and catching sun rays everywhere,  or at least trying to dance in the rain if you’re having erratic weather like we have here. Lol *joyful emoji*

With tattoo choker re-emerging into the fashion world straight from the 90’s, gracing celebrity necks everywhere,  I was inspired to make my own version from scraps earlier (rain makes slow days at shop)

But first let me mention that I got the basic black version yesterday from El Nido,  which I upgraded with a  little heart pendant.

I’ve been saving the little heart, which was originally  attached to a fancy nail clipper,  after my sister gave it to me a few months ago knowing that i’m a sucker for cute and quirky little pieces. 😁

But on to the lace one,

While browsing through images in Google,  I was inspired by the lace tattoo chokers.  They’re gorgeous and adds an edge to  simple tops or put a rad vibe on summer outfit,  also as an interesting piece to anchor color mismatch get-up.

So,  with rain raging outside,  I tried to dig in on my closet and find the rest of cloth scraps left from my dreamcatcher-making madness days. Ha ha yes,  it’s right to conclude now that i’m not only creative,  i’m also a hoarder.  The worst kind.  Lol

Anyway I found an old tattered piece of lace cloth with the most perfect design i was hoping for. 

Jackpot!!!

I carefully detached the flowery detail using the tip of a cutter.

Luck of all luck,  I also found a cute little button to serve as “lock” for the re-purposed flower design.

Sew it on the other end,  and create a small hole on the other.

Then:

Voila!!!

My basic tattoo choker,  now with heart pendant and my new purple flowery lace choker! *happy dance* ready to rock despite the rain.  Lol very happy heart emoji.  💓💓💓

For a badass chick look,  try it with wine-shade lippy.

Carle Diem! ☆♡

Love,

Your Island Girl 💋
