This week Cat recreates the look of actress Kat Dennings in the TV Show, Two Broke Girls and gives her a glittering purple smokey eye makeover.
Someone once told me "it's funny, you look like Kat Dennings and your name is Cat too!". Though I don't totally see the similarity, I do really love her look and couldn't resist trying to recreate it. After all, who can go wrong with a sleek cat eye and red lips?!

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!
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.

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.
