Advent DIY gift wrapping

What could be better than gift wrapping in the weekend just before travelling to England for the holidays. I want everything to be ready and next weekend I will be packing and cleaning the apartment. Last weekend I packed the presents for my boyfriend's family and this weekend is the rest of the family.

Here are some example of how you can decorate your Christmas presents in a new way.











What do you think?

Did you finish with theChristmas shopping and gift wrapping?

Have a lovely week!

A glimpse of Christmas

I love all the fluffy pullovers with Christmas motives that I can see on the display of so many shops. 

Here is a classic combination of a Christmas outfit. Loving pairing my Christmas skirt  with long black boots and my Gina Tricot fluffy top (See HERE).

Weekend DIY Christmas Cookies Jar

Christmas season always puts me in a creative mood and this weekend I have been very productive, not only decorating my little apartment but also try to do something extra.

Todays DIY PROJECT is a jar for cookies with Christmas motives, that you can also use to store candies and other sweets during the Christmas season. It is great because it does not require the purchase of a lot of additional materials but  what you have at disposal.





     

Here is what you will need:

 - an empty glass jar (you can buy one, or reuse one, as I did)

 - stickers with Christmas motives (you can get that at any hobby shop for example-søstrene grene)

 - Christmas ribbon, I have chosen two different ones (you can buy them at søstrene grene)


You must clean  the jar well and remove the sticker that was originally put, if you are re-using one. Then you must measure the christmas sticker according to how wide the jar is and stick it carefully. Be careful, with leaving air between the sticker and the jar because you will end up having balloons of air and it would not look as pretty. When you are finished with that, the last thing you need to do is choose a ribbon and put a bow on the jar.

VOILA 



I hope you enjoyed it :)

Christmas mood ON 2014

Hello Darlings,

I hope you are enjoying the great Christmas mood !
This year I am a little bit too busy with work and school that I have not finished my Christmas shopping. I am usually very organized and I am starting with the Christmas presents from August-September but this year it has been very intense due to my Masters thesis. Shame on me!! I know:)

Anyways still some presents to go, so I will try and arrange getting some the next two weeks, hopefully I can also get some better deal with the upcoming days.

How about you? How are you with the Christmas shopping?

Last week was the photo shoot for Contessa Jewellery, so it was quite great to be behind the scene and observe the actions behind the camera. More to come this weekend... I know that these oho toes are not that good quality but I tool them with my iPhone and the light was not so good for it.

We had a lot of fun and I am actually looking forward to seeing the results:) Check out Contessa Jewellery's Facebook page HERE and Etsy Shop HERE, Insta profile @Contessa_Jewellery





Have a lovely Thursday!

The joys of winter

It is time also for me to choose my top 3 winter coats. I am probably a little late but since the weather in Denmark has been so great the past months so I haven't really had the time to think even about buying one.  I already tried the pink one and  I am absolutely in love with it and it is already on my Christmas wish list :)

I guess that all the styles of coats I chose are made to fit different occasions and this is also the reason why I picked them, of course. Also depending on what your style is, you would choose a different winter coat.



                       
                         Black Coat from Just Female HERE             Grey Coat from H&M HERE

What do you think, do you find anything that you would like to have in your closet?

Have a lovely Thursday!

Last minute Halloween costumes

Are you one of those girls that like Halloween  decorations and playing dress-up, but still thinks about what costume to wear in the last minute. I do that every time and Many times I have no costume in the end because it is too late to make or order one.

Anyways, one thing you Can do is to look at ASOS marketplace since they have 
a lot of interesting ideas and cheap costume offers that Would do the work.   

I also have a few very easy suggestions that would not be expensive and you might actually have some of them already in your closet:-)

 One of my favourite costumes ever is of the WITCH... Quite easy to be done in a short period. What I think you should have is the big cone hat that the witch have, prefferably a white wick (both of these things you can find in your local supermarket or in Tiger) and in the end you can have a little black dress ( something that every girl has in her closet) and as a finish you Can rip a part a pair of your not so expensive tights to be more effective.



Another easy costume to have is of a cheerleader/ schoolgirl. I think almost every girl has a red print pleated skirt, a white shirt  and sneakers that can perfectly fit the cheerleader image. If you want a complete look then you can accessoriez with things like a tie, long socks or a band in the hair:-) 

If you want to look Like a police woman, that would probably not be very hard, too. This season were very trendy jumpsuits, so you should most probably have one in your closet. If not HM or Vero Moda might have something cheap to offer. You should most probably look for a  police hat, too, that you can match with a pair of hand cuffs and may be a fake gun. You should also try and find a belt that can hold all those things  and a badge if possible:-) (to be more convincing).

P.S. Do not forget the long boots if you have short jumpsuit:-)

These are the suggestions I Would have when it comes to a Very easy, cheap, last minute Halloween costume:-) So... Any favourites? Which one Would you choose? I think I will go for the WITCH:-) and you?

Have a lovely Friday:-)

P.S. If you want your costume to be published, please send me a pictures and one of you guys will win a surprise present:-)

Yours,
Fashion Memos.
