DIY Pom Pom Shoes:

Recreate the look with Jenna's pom pom shoes tutorial:



How would you describe your style?

Somewhat clownish, like a young child who was given too much freedom in dressing themselves. Lots of print mixing, statement pieces, pastel or bright colours, (or both) and general eccentric cat-lady style.

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

My rainbow polka dot 50's style dress. Especially fantastic worn with petticoats and doc martens, so you look particularly sassy.

Who are your style icons?

Anna Piaggi, Iris Apfel, Tavi Gevinson, and the people who wear what they want, and don't give a damn.

Do you have any favourite designers?

Oh, yes. The crazier the better. Romance Was Born, Meadham Kirchhoff, Lu Flux, Lady Petrova. The style of the pieces is important, but so is the ethics of that designer.

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes?

Both ethically and because of my budget, op shops/thrift stores or hunting designers on ebay is my way to go. But I do find myself obsessing over certain Dangerfield pieces, or Gorman. 

Do you make or customise your outfits?

As much as I can, yes. I have sewn a few dresses and what-not, but I find handmade accessories are easier and have the same impact. You'll often find me stroking velvet and playing with buttons in craft stores.

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?

Learn to sew, even it means re-hemming or changing necklines. Recycling old clothes, making accessories, gettin' crafty with a hot glue gun and embroidery also add a personalised touch, and you can be as insane as you wish. 

Which other fashion blogs do you love to read?

Pineneedle Collective, The Clothes Horse, Mermaidens, Self-constructed Freak, and Scathingly Brilliant. I love blogs that are beautiful aesthetically, but also those with happy, interesting content. 


The best thing about Berlin is the greenery. No matter where you are in this huge, crowded city you are never far away from a grabbing breath of fresh air & a break in one of the many well taken care of parks.




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!"




Tell us about your space?
My craft room used to be my oldest son’s room. When he went off to college we transformed the space into a spare bedroom/craft room. The room is about 10x12 and also contains a twin bed. I do work on my crafts and scrapbooking in this space and also use it to photograph some of my projects for my blog.

What have you done to make your space cosy, beautiful or inspiring?
I added a purple accent wall to give it some color and spark my creativity. My ribbon wall organizer is very fun and then I have the quote on the wall “Live your life to be a story worth telling.” That encapsulates how I want to live my life!

How do you keep organized?
I love my scrapbooking paper organizers and chalkboard labels because now I can find everything because it’s so well organized! I use both open and closed storage for variety. I also took the door off the closet and used shoe cubbies to store additional supplies.

Any tips & tricks for organising supplies?
Labeling definitely helps me and grouping like supplies together. I want to be able to access easily the items I use most often. I also know that keeping my work area clean is vital to being able to work in this room!

Which are your favourite possessions and are there any of your own creations on display?
I love my scrapbook paper and now that it’s organized I can use more of it in my crafting. I find the colors and patterns inspiring. I also have a display wall where I hang some of my scrapbook pages. I took an old window which I painted chalkboard and glass panes alternating so I used scrapbook paper and chalkboard sayings as decoration.

How do you organise your inspiration and ideas?
As a blogger I’m a huge fan of Pinterest and I organize my ideas through my boards. 

Where do you look for inspiration?
I still love my scrapbook/crafting books. I enjoy going through them and using the ideas to create something new and different. As a blogger, I’m always on the lookout for inspiration. I also search the internet and Pinterest often to see what catches my eye. My husband is also great at helping me repurpose yard sale and found items into home decor.

If you had three wishes, what would you do to make it the dream space?
I would make my room bigger so that I had enough space for one of those cool storage cabinets that opens up to reveal tons of room to store and craft.
I love my room but I’d love for the windows to be larger to bring in more natural light.
Honestly, I love my space and have worked hard to make room for everything I love and to create a space that makes me happy!

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.

Singapore, Southeast Asia • Visit Website »

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!"




Tell us about your space?
My craft room is located in Toronto, ON. I've lived here for about 4 years now. It's technically the dinning room in our place. It's not too big, It connects to the living room and kitchen (which is also very small). In this room, I paint, sew, animate and draw. In this space I mostly paint, draw and animate. I just recently got a sewing machine so now I also do some sewing on weekends.

What have you done to make your space cosy, beautiful or inspiring?
I like to keep my space very colourful and fun. I put up a lot of the pictures I take because it reminds me of happy times. I pin up things that inspire me from the internet or just things I buy.

How do you keep organized?
It's hard but I try to clean up after myself after craft. If I let it go a little, I try to clean the area up on the weekend. I try to keep all my sewing supplies in on area, all my paints on one shelf, etc. My desk is always pretty clean.

Any tips & tricks for organising supplies?
I like to keep things out in the open. If i can see it then I know where it is. If i put it away somewhere, i'll probably forget about it. Thats why I love that big built in book case in the corner of the room. If I didn't have that I think I'd have a bunch of wall shelves or something.

Which are your favourite possessions and are there any of your own creations on display?
I love the wall with all the colourful mini polaroids. It's just nice to look at. Above my sewing machine I have a few of my tribal animal paintings hanging up. I like looking at them. They inspire me to do more.

How do you organise your inspiration and ideas?
I take down notes sometimes, of things that id want to make or do. But usually its an idea i have in my head for a while... and it just won't go away so I just go ahead and do it. Those are usually my favourites.

Where do you look for inspiration?
The internet is full of amazing artists. I also like watching old cartoons, disney movies, anime. Sometimes fashion inspires me too. Inspiration is all around!

If you had three wishes, what would you do to make it the dream space?
My 3 wishes would be; to have a bigger room. A door would be nice too because sometimes I wish I could just be alone. But then I'd need a TV in there with me or something. A big window near me would be nice too. I love looking outside and natural light is awesome too.

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...
