We head to Greensboro to go behind the scenes at Marty's Musings tour and see Marty's purple organized craft space.
The organization is my favorite thing about the room. When I changed the way I store my massive selection of scrapbook paper I took the time to organize everything with DIY chalkboard labels. I spend less time looking for things and more time creating!
This week PinkWeeds recreates the look of Daenerys from Game Of Thrones:
What I love about Daenerys Targaryen is she knows who she is and she is completely confident in her own skin. Her style is completely reflective of her life and the different places she finds herself. Ironically it isn't when she's dressed in silk gowns that she is most herself, but when she's in rough leathers and woven cloaks that she seems most confident.
Henderson's Of Edinburgh is a staple for vegetarians in the city serving delicious fresh salads, hearty veggie burgers and delicious fresh baked goods. We've teamed up with them this week to learn how-to cook their smokey babaganoush and a roast vegetable and caschewnut satay.
Nicole Lulinski (she goes by Luli) is an illustrator and the creator of HoneyTruffle Co. She loves to draw girls with giant heads and bad attitudes. Honeytruffles are what she calls her illustrations of ridiculous thoughts, favorite quotes, cool people, and rad fashion because they're small, sweet and exactly what you need. Follow @Honeytruffleco on Instagram even though she has no clue where she's going.
I think the best thing about living in Singapore is also the worst—space. We are a really small country with a growing population, so over the years, it has gotten a lot more crowded here. However, I feel that the fact the we are small makes it great for travelling. You can make your way from one end of Singapore to the other in 2 hours and explore all the different places. Nowhere is ever too far.
We head to Toronto, Ontario to tour artist Angel Szafranko inspiring art studio and craft space.
My favourite thing about this space is that it's 'open'. It's actually the dinning room but we were never using it. I can see right into the living room from where I sit. So if I'm on the computer doing some work I can also watch a movie!
This week Juliet recreates the victorian steampunk look of musician and Snippets coverstar, Emilie Autumn:
DIY the style of Emilie Autumn, a well-known electric violin player, singer, actress and poet. She carefully selects amazing clothes from the Victorian era, corsets and striped stockings, adding sometimes a hint of fantasy and sometimes a Steampunk inspired accessory. Prepare yourself a cup of tea and welcome to her Asylum: but remember that it's easier to get in than to get out...
We stopped for lunch at The Beet Box Cafe while road-tripping in Hawaii and loved their deliciously fresh veggie options. Today, they're teaching us how to cook their Portabella Stache'wich which might just be the best sandwich ever!

How would you describe your style?
I always have a hard time with this one as my style is really ever-evolving based on the season, my mood, and whats currently inspiring me! That said, I can definitely say it usually some sort of mix between vintage and modern, and I always try to keep things fun!
What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?
My favorite piece in my wardrobe for comfort is one of my slightly oversized V neck t shirts, which you can find me in on most weekends! As for a more fashion-y item, my cat- eye tortoise shell sunnies that my mom found for me in a grocery store in Hawaii are one of my very favorite things I own right now! I know thats more of an accessory than a piece of clothing, but I feel like an outfit is truly complete once I have them on!
Who are your style icons?
Other bloggers are my style icons! I am so happy to be a part of such an inspiring and stylish community. I am always pinning outfits I want to try out and swooning over things I see on my daily blog feed.
Do you have any favourite designers?
I am really not big into designers, but I really enjoy everything from Dear Creatures.
Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes clothes?
Most of what I wear is vintage and or/ thrifted, so when I get something that is actually new it feels like a treat. My usual go-tos are Urban Outfitters, H&M, and Modcloth. Also, whenever I enter a Target I always end up with SOMETHING new that I really don't need!
Do you make or customise your outfits?
Yes! I love to alter vintage clothing to make it a bit more modern. My Etsy shop is full of clothing that I have altered and/ or customized! It's amazing what taking up a hemline a bit or removing poofy sleeves can do!
Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?
I'd say always have fun with it, and also make sure you feel like "you". This is not to say I believe people should be limited to wearing one style, but I think its important to feel great and be comfortable in what you are wearing. An easy way to make an outfit more personal is to have a few favorite sunglasses that can be the finishing touch to basically any look!
