I want to start a new series on the blog, that may be quite obvious. Bowsessed has been lacking on the bow front lately which I can’t quite understand, because when I look into my room/closet I could easily point at 50 things that have a bow on it! So starting this week I will be posting either a bow-themed item from my personal collection or one from my current wish list every week (which will probably further feed my bowsession).
Sorry for the delay in posts, I’ve just come back from London where I attended Food Blogger Connect (more on that in the next days) and unfortunately fell ill. Now I am trying to get back in the swing of things! :) I’m also trying to figure out a posting schedule to be more consistent.
Today I have a very easy DIY for you to make cute knotted hair ties or twistbands as some people call them.
On my last trips to the US (which have been a while back) I have seen knotted hair ties at shops like Anthropologie and J.Crew. They seemed so cute, were usually very conveniently positioned by the checkouts, where I was very tempted to buy them until I saw the price! There were generally priced at about $15 for 4 hair ties, which I thought was insane! I mean they will be stretching out like any other hair tie and I just couldn’t bring myself to spend that much money on hair ties. I thought they seemed easy enough to make at home for a lot less money!
With ‘Festival des Métiers’, Hermès is granting its visitors behind the scenes demonstrations of its fine craftsmanship. Visitors can walk around the different stations, interact with the craftsmen and see iconic Hermès objects such as handbags, fine jewelry, watches and silk scarves, while Hermès’ artisans are revealing the unique crafts of the luxury house.
Floral print jeans and leggings are all the rage this spring. I have been loving this trend but hadn’t found a pair that I really liked. As I was sitting in the library and supposed to write a paper for uni, I found this lovely navy pair from Uniqlo. And it was on sale! It was a done deal that I was placing an order, together with two of their beautiful cotton cashmere jumpers from the men’s collection (why do they always have the nicest colors for men?!).
Time is flying by and if you are like me and haven’t started your Christmas shopping, here are a few gift ideas for your loved ones.
The past few years, I’ ve never really celebrated Halloween because it’s not such a big thing in Austria. But this year, I went overboard, doing my own costume and all. As you can guess from the picture I was reinterpreting Black Swan :)
