Tray Table Socks Tutorial

Mar 31, 2010 by

Ages ago I showed you very quickly how I decorated my tray table. I love this thing to death because it means that I can work out in the lounge room without having a gigantic burning laptop scalding my legs! Because it’s adjustable I can make it flat and do crafts and nail art on it too :D

Tray Table Socks Tutorial

The problem with it is that on tiles every time you move it scrapes and make horrible noise. This is what the bottom of the feet look like, the tiles have actually worn through the paint! So my solution is to make it some socks to keep it’s feet warm :D

Nailart Pictures – Revisited

Mar 29, 2010 by

I’m here to distract you with nail art but I’m sure you’ve all noticed a few of the changes I’m making around the blog by now ^_^

I’ve been quite busy over the weekend and fixed a lot of the issues we were talking about last post, there is still more to come so when I’m finished (probably in the next few days) I’ll do a round up post of what has changed. Please keep in mind that I’ll be tinkering so if something doesn’t work, don’t stress just wait a little bit and try again :)

So it would seem that my heart shaped measuring bowls and spoons are a bit of a hit! I was inundated with emails and comments asking where you could all get one. So here are two websites that apparently sell them or very similar to them. These sites both stock the spoons and other cute things as well.

Hear Mum Roar found this site: http://www.littlebetsybaker.com.au/store/pc/Heart-Shaped-Bowl-143p962.htm

My Mother found this one which is definitely the same: http://www.chalet.net.au/home

Now onto what you all really want to see: NAIL ART!

Because I’m going to be spending the day making a heap of sets of nail art for my Etsy store I though I’d treat you to some eye candy ;) I know a lot of you have only just started reading my blog recently so I wanted to show you some nail art I did quite a while ago, most likely before you all started reading ^_^ If you’ve been reading for over a year feel free to skip this one :P Apologies for the size of the photos, these were all edited back when my blog was even tinier on blogspot.

These ones are all done with a Konad stamper for a competition, there are non-konad ones at the end.

Outfit of the day Post!

Mar 26, 2010 by

Morning everyone it’s outfit time!

First off I wanted to tell you all about a guest post I did for the blog “All Women Stalk“. They do lists of various things and my list is the 15 Must Have Items for Hime Girls, go check it out :D

But today’s post is mostly an outfit post so let’s get to that now!

Thanks for looking at my outfit!

Easy Macaron Recipe – The Adventure Continues…

Mar 24, 2010 by

Macarons… they’ve become a serious obsession now.

I blame Lolita brands for this obsession. If they didn’t keep including them in prints or in sweets deco maybe I could forget about how melt-in-your-mouth-delicious they are… maybe I could ignore the fact that they are incredibly pretty… and maybe I could stop thinking about how I desperately want one for breakfast today with a cup of tea…

Epic Macaron Recipe

But no!

And so it goes on until one day I got so frustrated I decided to make them myself. I suppose that’s in keeping with the spirit of this blog ^_^

I searched and searched for a recipe. Many were too complicated with things like measuring the temperatures in the room and comparing the humidity to get the correct amounts for different parts of the world!? Macarons are apparently the most fickle of all deserts.

Finally just as I was about to give up a friend sent me a link to Not Quite Nigella’s Recipe. It seemed easy enough but I wasn’t too keen on the idea of pistachio as I wanted James to actually eat them too. I kept searching until I found the Tasted By Two version. Seemed easy enough… and so the experimenting began! After maybe 10 batches I have modified the recipe for our kitchen/temperature/humidity/what ever other ridiculous things macarons are scared of. I am not a baking purist, I just did what worked! These techniques might not work for you but I assure you that my result was freaking awesome :D

So here is everything I’ve learned about macarons and my modified version of the Tasted By Two Recipe:

What you need:

Ingredients for chocolate macarons with chocolate filling-

For the outside bit:

  • 65 grams Almond Meal
  • 80 grams Icing Sugar
  • 40 grams  Caster Sugar
  • 1 table spoon Cocoa Powder
  • 50 grams Egg White at room temperature
  • Oil spray
  • Pinch of salt

For the filling:

  • Cooking chocolate
  • Butter
  • Thickened cream
  • Icing sugar

Utensils-

  • Scales
  • Sieve
  • Aluminum foil
  • Mixing bowls
  • Electric beater
  • Baking trays
  • Spoon etc
  • Piping bag/Small plastic bag

Gather everything together :D

Epic Macaron Recipe

James doesn’t like chocolate much either so he asked for some blueberry flavored ones.

I used tinned blueberries, crushed them and added to the mixture just before piping.

Epic Macaron Recipe

This is easy enough, you just need to add slightly more of the dry ingredients to counter the wet of the blueberries. If you’ve made a couple of batches you should be able to roughly guess at what the correct consistency should be.

Epic Macaron Recipe

My absolute FAVORITE flavor is green tea with pistachio filling. OMG this is seriously awesome. All you need to do is add 1/2 a teaspoon of matcha powder to the mixture instead of your chocolate powder. I’m using one from Tea2 but any will work.

Epic Macaron Recipe

Green!

Epic Macaron Recipe

They all look so pretty!

Epic Macaron Recipe

When you come back to the macarons the icing should have formed a very slight shell, you should be able to touch the top without getting your finger wet. Pre-heat your oven to 160 degrees Celsius. When the oven is ready you can put in the tray and cook for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes you should be able to see the little crinkly bottom feet, if not something has gone wrong! Cook for another 4 minutes and then allow them to cool on the bench.

This is a picture of the first time I tried to make them, they weren’t very pretty but you can see the little crinkly feet I’m talking about…

Epic Macaron Recipe

Leave the macarons to cool while we make the filling.Basically all that is involved in that is melting chocolate in the microwave, adding a little cream, butter and a little icing sugar so it doesn’t go solid again. Very delicious. Be sure to taste it along the way ;)

Epic Macaron Recipe

The pistachio variation on this is basically crushed pistachios with butter and icing sugar to make a delicious paste:

Epic Macaron Recipe

Now it’s time to remove the macarons from the tray and turn them over… the bottoms should look like this:

Epic Macaron Recipe

Below is a good example of failed bottoms. The reason this didn’t work is because they weren’t cooked long enough so the insides were liquidy. They stuck to the (stupid) baking paper and collapsed when being removed. Still tasted good though.

Epic Macaron Recipe

Take a half and spread some filling on, pop another half on top and you’re done :D

Taadaa! Success!

Epic Macaron Recipe

And here are the delicious green tea ones:

Epic Macaron Recipe

So there you have it! No longer will I be a slave to sweets deco and brand prints! Next time I crave macarons I’ll bloody well make some! :D Mine may not be the prettiest ever made but they tasted damn good and nobody complained so I’m happy!

Hope you all enjoyed the adventure as much as I enjoyed eating all of the failed and successful batches of macarons!

Violet’s Top 10

Mar 22, 2010 by

The ever lovely Mitsu over at Universal Doll was wonderful enough to translate some of the Ageha model’s Top 10′s :D

She challenged us all to do it ourselves and after seeing how adorable her Top 10 was I couldn’t resist ^_^

Alice in Wonderland Nailart

Mar 19, 2010 by

The way we get to the end of this story is a little long and rambling but it ends in Alice in Wonderland nail art so I’m sure you won’t mind ;)

A few months ago my Mum went on holiday to the Gold Coast and discovered a shop called “Del Sol” which makes products that change colour in the sun. Very 1990′s right? Well that was my attitude until she mentioned that they made nail polished that change colour in the sun! :D

She brought me home 4 of their polishes to try out. I was a bit skeptical at first but they actually change surprisingly well!

These are the colours in normal inside light: Red with silver glitter Blue with a pearly finish Clear with silver glitter Pink with a pearly finish

Del Sol Polish

So back to the nail art story, I’ve been wanting to do some Alice in Wonderland themed nail art for years now but I’ve never been able to think of a design that would do it justice. Now that everyone is talking about Alice again I thought it was high time to try it out and the first thing that came to mind was colour change. You can’t get more Alice than that!

This is them inside:

Alice Nails

This was also my first attempt at doing 3D acrylic. To be honest I’m not really happy with how these turned out, the idea was so much cooler in my head. Also I think that if I had spent more time practicing my skills I would like the end result better. I’m all out of the acrylic liquid now but I’m going to get some more and try again! Practice, practice, practice! The 3D parts are the Heart and Club card suits, the playing card and the White Rabbit on the thumb. I didn’t have coloured acrylic so I used clear and painted them after.

And outside:

Alice Nails

I really loved the idea of the colour change polish but I don’t think I used as well as I could have. It works great on the index nail that says “Alice” because it looks plain until it’s in the sun but the other little details like the Cheshire Cat turning red-purple weren’t as obvious.

Another problem I had when taking the photos

Comparison between the two:

Alice Nails

A close up of the hat and rabbit on the thumbs. The hat band changes from red-purple but because it was over the black it’s hard to see. The background of the rabbit also goes from silver glitter-red :( I am really proud of my White Rabbit though! My first 3D thing that actually looks like it’s supposed to :D

Alice Nails

So conclusions: -I currently suck at 3D acrylics but I will practice and get much better! -These Alice nails weren’t great but I now have ideas for even more spectacular ones. -Colour change polish is completely pointless but also very cool.

Also on a side note the adorable Momoberi gave me a mention on her blog too and I didn’t find out until I’d already written that last post! She was inspired by one of my hair tutorials ^_^

Have a great weekend everyone! And I’d love to see some photos if you’ve done any Alice in Wonderland Nail Art!

Hime Gyaru FAQ

Mar 17, 2010 by

I’ve been saying I’m going to do this Hime Gyaru FAQ for such a long time now but I just kept putting it off and avoiding it. I find writing things like this very difficult because there is so much about fashion, especially those whose roots are in a different culture, that is subjective. Writing essays on the subject is not something I want to do, I would be much more at home making some hair bows!

Also please note that these are just the conclusions that I have come to from my own research and opinions. I am not the be-all end-all authority on the subject of Hime Gyaru. I wouldn’t consider myself an expert, I am just writing in response to the huge number of questions I receive on the subject so I don’t keep having to repeating myself.

About The Hime Gyaru Style:

What is Hime Gyaru?

-Hime Gyaru is a street fashion which originated in Japan. The literal translation of Hime Gyaru (姫ギャル) is Princess Girl. It is a fashion subculture which centers around dressing  and (depending how seriously you take it) living life like a princess.

Features, Discounts and Housekeeping :D

Mar 16, 2010 by

Evening everyone! Ok so tonight I’ve just got a couple of things to take care of before we get back to regular posting tomorrow.

  • Firstly remember I did a review on Skin MD moisturiser a few months back? A lot of you had questions about where it was available and if it would be available in Australia any time soon. Well they currently don’t have plans to stock in physical stores in Australia but they do ship internationally. The only thing with this is that a bottle costs $18 and the shipping is another $9.95 which is not exactly cheap when you haven’t used the product before :(

Violet to the rescue of your bank balances!

If you want to order and you enter the promotional code “VIOLET” you will receive 20% off your order!

I know I’m going to be stocking up :D

  • Secondly my blog has also been featured on lots of other blogs lately !

I did an interview with Pretty Wonderland about blogging.

I was featured on All Women Stalk in the post 7 Great Fashion Blogs.

I was featured in a “blogs we love” post on The Beauty Stop.

Tabby over at Life of Mine wrote this adorable post about me.

I’ve also been receiving some lovely emails from you all and I just wanted to say thank you all for continuing to read my blog. I hope I can make it even better in the future!

  • Following on from that in an effort to make things even better around here I’m going to be making a couple of changes. Nothing major, just a few things here and there so please don’t mind as I tinker with the site. If something doesn’t work please let me know and I will fix it up! If there is something that you want to see on the website I’ll be putting up a little poll so you can have your say ^_^
  • There is also a competition coming up for you all to look forward to!

Lots of love!

Pompom Hair Band Tutorial

Mar 15, 2010 by

Lately everywhere I look there are pompom hair bands so I thought why not do a pompom hair band tutorial!

Seriously it’s hard to turn around without seeing some kind of variation! I’ve been seeing them worn in hair and as bracelets or tied to bags. At first I couldn’t stand them but they’ve been slowly growing on me… and now I think they’re cute! The only thing is that here in Aus because they are more hard to come by they are very expensive, who wants to pay $20 for a hair tie?!

So I decided to make my own and it took around 10 minutes.

Big Fat Bodyline Japan Review!

Mar 13, 2010 by

DSC_0789_100205_6513 copy

Quite a while ago I placed an order with Bodyline Japan for quite a few items as a belated Christmas present from James ^_^

A lot of you asked for a review of the items so here it is!

Here is the package that arrived:

PIC_0276 copy

Inside I ordered the following (not the real names but I can’t find half of the things on the site anymore):

James’s mini review of the beannie and hat is “very soft and nice” XD

PIC_0277 copy

Ok let’s do the individual reviews!

Spotty Bow

Price- US$3

Made from average quality ribbon, finished quite nicely.

DSC_0777_100205_6525 copy

On the siteI thought it was a side bow but it’s actually right in the middle, now looking at it I think she’s just wearing it to the side. The plastic band it’s on is a little flimsy.

DSC_0776_100205_6526 copy

Over all: happy with the quality for the price. I’ve worn it several times now.

DSC_0778_100205_6524 copy

Short ruffle socks

Price: US$5

The lace is nylon but it’s still very very soft. The actual socks are incredibly soft. I’m really happy with these especially for the price, they are adorable!

DSC_0786_100205_6516 copy

Music Note Dress

Price: I think it was around US$35-ish I can’t find it on the site now but it was very cheap.

This is the packaging. Something about Bodyline’s international packaging has always made me happy.

PIC_0280 copy

The dress:

DSC_0767_100205_6535 copy

I fell in love with this print. It’s not top notch quality, up close the print gets slightly pixeled and one thing that irritates me is that some of the treble clefs are backwards… but unless you’re staring at it from 2 inches away and are a music nut like me I don’t see it as a reason not to buy.

DSC_0768_100205_6534 copy

The quality of this dress is fantastic for the price plain and simple. No it’s not the same quality as AP or BtSSB but it’s still better than the average dress you would pick up at Supre or even Target. All of the seams are finished well and though there is no lining every stitch is in it’s place. *edit* I also forgot to mention that this jsk comes with bow ties for the back and shirring with ribbon so the size is quite adjustable. The bow ties are not detachable unlike other brands.

The quality of the lace was as good as any brand piece I’ve seen, no nylon at all.

DSC_0774_100205_6528 copy

It came with 2 detachable bows on the collar which I totally love. They are the perfect size to use on my beret or just in my hair. The only problem I had (and this is really nit-picky) was the clips were put on backwards compared with everything else I own so I put them o upside down a few times out of habit ^_^

DSC_0775_100205_6527 copy

Eyelashes:

Price: US$1-3

PIC_0281 copy

I was really happy with the lashes, here in Aus lashes are usually $8-10 which I think is quite unreasonable. These are a great price and decent quality. They also offer many many different styles.

This was my favorite pair:

DSC_0699_100204_6602 copy

Diamantes!

DSC_0698_100204_6603 copy

Shoes with bows

Price: US$37

I can’t express how happy I am with these shoes, they are exactly what I was hoping for! I bought them so I would have good walking shoes for Melbourne, the reason I chose these ones is because the front platform is almost as high as the heel so there isn’t as sever slope as appears. Apart from rolling my ankle once they did their job fantastically and I didn’t have any major dramas.

DSC_0779_100205_6523 copy

I picked the non-shiny version. They are very sturdily made and surprisingly light. I went through two airports with them and didn’t set off security so I imagine they are made of hollow plastic.

DSC_0782_100205_6520 copy

The heels are thick and the bows on the back are so cute!

DSC_0781_100205_6521 copy

One feature I really liked was the fact that the top buckle is on a snap closure. This means when you have ridiculously long nails you won’t have problems with putting your shoes on :D

DSC_0783_100205_6519 copy

The tread on the bottom was a nice touch too that a lot of these style shoes seem to miss out on.

DSC_0785_100205_6517 copy

The only problem is that being white they do scuff quite easily. That’s not a design flaw, it’s just how white shoes are so if you’re going to get some you should get some shoe polish too.

DSC_0780_100205_6522 copy

Stripe Candy Tote bag

Price: US$6

DSC_0790_100205_6512 copy

I was a little disappointed with the colour of this one, on the site it looks like a very pastel blue but in reality it’s about half way between my photos and theirs.

The pattern is so cute!

DSC_0791_100205_6511 copy

For some reason the straps are made from a shiny slightly stretchy almost cheap vinyl fabric. It’s a very strange choice because it feels so much more flimsy than the rest of the bag. That said I used it to carry my heavy laptop to and from Melbourne and all around the place and it still hasn’t broken. It hasn’t broken yet but I still think I want to replace the straps just to be safe.

DSC_0792_100205_6510 copy

It’s lined with pink cotton. For $6 you can’t really go wrong though.

DSC_0793_100205_6509 copy

So what does it all look like on? Well it looks like this…

DSC_0696_100204_6605 copy

The skirt of the dress has lots of room for a good sized petti. Without the petti it is the perfect shape for hime style.

DSC_0694_100204_6607 copy

And co-ordinated slightly differently. Also don’t worry I haven’t forgotten that you all want a tutorial on this hair style, I’m just a bit behind at the moment *_*

DSC_0757_100205_6545 copy

Overall I’m happy with my purchases. I think it was great value for money and I was able to buy a lot more items than I was expecting.

Bodyline had such a stigma in the Lolita community because of quality issues many years ago, since then they’ve worked hard to change their image. Yes you will still find maid style items and no not everything there is good BUT if you are prepared to do your research and study the pictures carefully it can be a great place to pick up well priced lovely items.

I will definitely be ordering from them again :D

Yay Bodyline Japan!

Circa Vintage Melbourne Photos!

Mar 11, 2010 by

One of the absolute highlights of James and my trip to Melbourne happened on the last day, in fact it happened on the way to the airport: we got to visit Circa Vintage!

Mar 8, 2010 by

Today I wanted to give you guys first pick of my new nail art for sale ^_^

This is all going up on the Etsy store soon but I want my blog readers to have first preference. I’ve also made a few of those bow and heart rings that you all loved so much on Twitter. All the information on ordering is down the bottom, I hope you enjoy!

Outfit Of The Day Post!

Mar 6, 2010 by

Today’s outfit was very stereotypical French inspired.

The kind of France that’s in my dreams… where everyone always carries a baguette all the time and has a poodle permanently attached to their arm. Yes that may be the kind of France that doesn’t exist but so what, I love my outfit anyway!

How to Store False Eyelashes in a Cake… yes a cake.

Mar 3, 2010 by

How to store false eyelashes? Challenge accepted.

It’s no secret, I love cake. No I don’t think you guys get it… I looooooove cake. So much so that the first thing I thought when I was trying to think of a way to store my false eyelashes was cake… and you’ll see why in a minute :D

DSC_0383_091207_4239 copy

If you’re anything like me you have a lot of lashes. Here in Aus they don’t come in the nice little trays, they come in stupid plastic packets which mean it’s really difficult to store and reuse them. My counter tends to look like this after a few days…

DSC_0131_091202_4490 copy

Very ugly, very messy and very unhygienic. So what to do? When I found this cheap craft storage box at a $2 store I had a great idea :D

The storage container looks like this when it’s filled up. Each compartment has it’s own lid so when you need one set they won’t all fall out and it’s transparent so you can see them all at once. It’s exactly the right size so your lashes don’t get crushed or out of shape.

DSC_0135_091202_4486 copy

So let’s get started! This is what you need for cakey lash storage:

-Paper clay. I picked up a kit from Singapore but I’ve seen this same kit available on Etsy as well. -Container -Cute ribbon -Icing bag with nozzles -Optional if your paper clay kit doesn’t come with white icing you can use acrylic modeling paste (read more here) -Small false flowers

DSC_0189_091206_4432 copy

So this is what came in my kit. It has lots of molds and a couple of colours of clay and a ready to go icing kit.

DSC_0190_091206_4431 copy

I wanted a strawberry for my cake so I made one with the mold like this:

DSC_0191_091206_4430

Put clay in both sides of the mold.

DSC_0192_091206_4429 copy

Squish it together..

DSC_0193_091206_4428 copy

You get this:

DSC_0194_091206_4427 copy

Remove the extra and you’ve got a strawberry.

DSC_0195_091206_4426 copy

You can make pretty much anything you want by hand as well as it’s really easy to work with. I made some macarons, hearts, icecream tops and some of those swirly chocolate wafer stick things.

DSC_0197_091206_4424 copy

Also squish some of the yellow clay flat and cut out 8 fairly equal triangles like this. These are going to be the slices of cake on top so make the roughly the same size as the container sections.

DSC_0328_091207_4294 copy

I make a bunch of clay bits and pieces at a time because they need to be left to dry over night.

DSC_0327_091207_4295 copy

The next day!

Now that everything is nice and dry let’s get going! Turn your container upside down so the lid parts are on the bottom and coat the top sections with epoxy glue.

DSC_0331_091207_4291 copy

Glue the triangles you made on :D

DSC_0332_091207_4290 copy

Now decide on the design you want on the top. I like to lay mine out first so I know that it will all fit!

DSC_0336_091207_4286 copy

Before I go ahead and glue it all, here is a mini tutorial inside a tutorial on making the wafer swirl things. After they’ve dried you can add the chocolate. I paint mine with brown nail polish :D

DSC_0337_091207_4285 copy

Paint the swirl… fairly self explanatory! Let them dry really well before you add them to the cake!

DSC_0339_091207_4283 copy

Now back to the cake!!

Time to cover the edges, get your pretty ribbon and glue it around the edge. You should align it as close to the bottom lids as you can without obstructing the opening/closing. Don’t worry about having a large gap towards the top, we’re going to fill that with icing :D

DSC_0341_091207_4281 copy

I decided to put flowers on the top of mine, glue whatever you decided to put there ^_^

DSC_0342_091207_4280 copy

Time for icing!

DSC_0357_091207_4265 copy

Fill your icing bag with whatever you’re using for the icing (please use the paper clay or acrylic modeling paste rather than silicon as silicon attracts a lot of dirt in the bathroom) and get any decorations you have for the top close at hand.

DSC_0363_091207_4259 copy

Start icing around the top gap of your cake :D

DSC_0377_091207_4245 copy

You can use whatever icing method you like, I just did this: http://www.wilton.com/technique/Shell

DSC_0378_091207_4244 copy

I did two lines of icing to fill the gap up to the ribbon.

DSC_0380_091207_4242 copy

Next pipe a gigantic swirl in the middle of the flowers :D

DSC_0381_091207_4241 copy

Then while the icing is still wet you should add in any decorations you want. I added the strawberry, two wafers and some diamantes :D

DSC_0382_091207_4240 copy

Make sure to leave it to dry at least a day or so then it’s ready to use :D

And there you have it! A delicious way to add to your bathroom collection of sweets! And oraganise your collection of lashes!

DSC_0383_091207_4239 copy

Also if your collection is bigger than 8 pairs (like mine is) you can just add more layers to your cake underneath ^_^ YUM!

So it would appear that my bathroom now has an unintentional sweets theme now XD

Do you have tips or tricks? Can you tell me a better way to store false eyelashes?

DIY Jewellery Storage Idea – Icecream

Mar 1, 2010 by

Morning everyone, odd post today, it’s a DIY jewellery holder shaped like an icecream :D

Apologies if this tutorial is a little vague, I’ve been sick all night/morning so if something doesn’t make sense feel free to ask in the comments and I’ll update it ^_^

Today’s post is a reader request! Many readers have written in and asked me to show them how to store certain items in a cute way. For example how to store earrings/jewelery/belts/other junk in a creative way that still displays how pretty the items are. There have been so many requests that I’m going to have to turn it into a series of posts… so this is the first.

This is for girls with a small number of earrings/rings/whatever that they want to store.

DSC_0482_100124_6472 copy

Firstly, as always you should gather your materials. I’m making mine out of felt but you could use pretty much anything.

Anyway add your ribbon bow to the front and then glue the match sticks around the cone like this:

DSC_0479_100124_6475 copy

If you have left over felt you can make a chocolate stick to go on top by rolling a piece up and gluing it in place ^_^

DSC_0480_100124_6474 copy

And that’s finished! Now you just need to add your jewelery:

DSC_0490_100124_6464 copy

You can hang earrings in any of the swirls as well as rings and small necklaces.

DSC_0488_100124_6466 copy

The chocolate swirl is also really good for wrapping longer items around.

DSC_0491_100124_6463 copy
