Come behind the scenes at Melmaria Designs and tour Melody's cosy studio in New Hampshire.
My room, where my studio is, is actually an add-on space to our original house, and I love that it has wood floors and a slanted roof. The floors are easy to clean, and the roof makes it cozy.
Lisa from Tea and Craft recreates the colorful style of Japanese pop singer, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.
Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is the stage name of a Japanese pop singer and model who is not afraid to play with fashion. She keeps her makeup simple and fresh, her bows and false eyelashes big, her colours bright, and her accessories OTT. Kyary uses layering to create interesting silhouettes and adds embellishments and accessories to liven up otherwise plain wardrobe stables. Her style is cute, kooky, often a little creepy, and absolutely perfect to DIY. You may not be able to find a plastic jungle animal necklace or a studded bowler hat or question mark pattern tights in the stores, but don't let that stop you from having fun recreating Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's look!
