Hey guys! I haven’t been blogging for a while now, because I’ve been busy with some assignments and study, and I’ll probably still be busy until December. Buuut I try make some posts whenever I can 😉
Honestly, I’m obsessed with Pinterest! It’s so genius – instead of saving all the pics on your phone, you can create an account on Pinterest and pin all of your fav-pics and divide ’em into categories. I might have a little OCD – but YAS! Lately I’ve been all about the navy-blue outfits. It looks so cool and such a sophisticated color combined with black, white or metallic. I don’t know about you guys, but I think Navy-blue is going to be the color of Winter. So here are some inspiration-pics from Pinterest.
Let’s be real, Fall is almost gone – there are no more leaves on the trees, it’s no longer sweater-weather but jacket-weather, christmas decoration and lights all over the place, and before we know it, the snow will take over the entire roads and side-walks. I’m sorry, but I think it’s propitiate to talk about winter now prepare some of the winter-essentials 🙂 ♥

Dear readers! In few days we hindus will be celebrating the festival Diwali aka. Deepavali. For those who aren’t familiar with this festival: Diwali festival means “Festival of Lights” and is celebrated in fall. The festival spiritually signifies the victory of good over evil and is an important festival for hindus. People light up there houses and to do that, I found this DIY tea light candle holder last year and wanted to do it. But I didn’t have the tools to do it, so I waited a year.
Here are some of the materials you’ll need:
- Glue-gun or hobby-glue
- Piece of Cardboard (optional)
- Colorfull bangles (I recommmend glass bangles, but I used metal bangles)
- Tea light candles
How to do it:
- This first part is optional, whether you want a cardboard-base or not. You’ll have use a bangle to line out the the circle for your base, and then cut it out.
- Then glue a bangle to the base and wait for it to dry. You can combine the bangles randomly or in order, but I had some different colors and just glued them randomly together. As I mentioned before: I recommend you to use glass-bangles if you have it, cuz it will look better and the light will shine better through. Also thicker bangles – just to make it easier when it comes to the glue-part.
- Keep going until desired height and check if there are any loose bangles and make sure they stick together. I used a glue-gun to stick the bangles together, and it was quite messy and hard to work with, so I recommend a hobby-glue instead of the glue-gun.
- When you’re done, let the glue dry and check if there are any loose spots and cover them. If you use a glue gun, you’ll have to remove threads of glue inside and out. Then you can put your tea light candles inside the holder and voila!
- To create a display for the bangles you can decorate a plain glass-display or an old CD with glitter, rhinestones, sequins and gems.
Even though this DIY was messy because of my choice of glue, I really liked the result and it will look amazing as Diwali decoration or any other ethnic celebration 🙂♥
