I was at Michaels and I saw these fun metallic temporary tattoos. I was always a fan of temporary tattoos as a kid (well, who wasn't?) so I though, 'why not' so I did. I'll probably use the rest of the pack by the end of the month because they're really fun!
Check out these 16 fun ways to rock Flash Tattoos from Stylecaster!
This outfit was inspired by my heritage. I was born and raised in the Netherlands. Our national color is orange and it is also my favorite color (a happy coincidence - it means I always have something to wear for Dutch holidays and national soccer games!). I made the shirt by painting it instead of using iron-on like the DIY Verbage Shirt. I will post the tutorial for the painting method soon! Also, orange lipstick is the bomb.
My boyfriend George and I love sushi. For this Valentine's Day (our ninth one!) we decided to get fresh fish and make our own. We used a sushi kit George got from my parents during Christmas and we bought Salmon, Tuna, avocado and cucumber to make our rolls (quick note, if you want to buy fish for sushi, make sure it is WILD and freeze it before use to kill bacteria. Other than that, enjoy!).

Our colorful ingredients:
I tried to make a few of the rolls into hearts but they didn't turn out so great haha. The hardest part of the whole process was the sushi rice. It takes forever to make and requires a lot of steps. It was worth it though.
It was delicious! What a fun way to do Valentine's Day dinner!
Now for some wonderful fashion inspired for fashion. I need to get one of these to wear for our next sushi adventure.
Here is the DIY skirt I made in action. I was fah-reezing outside so I only had about 30 seconds but I'll be wearing the skirt a lot when it gets warmer outside!
Pencil skirts are a staple in my wardrobe - I love them. I wanted a velvet skirt that was below the knee length (because it's freezing outside) so I decided to make one. This is a super simple skirt that anyone who owns a sewing machine can make!
First, take your necessary measurements: waist, hip, waist-to-knee height and waist-to-hem height. For the waist, choose where you want your skirt to sit. This will be the edge of the body of the skirt - the waistband will be added above this. The hip is the widest part of your butt. Measure waist to knee so you know where to taper your pattern and then decide what length you want your skirt to be.
Now get your supplies ready. I got 1 1/4 yards of 60" wide (STRETCHY) fabric, some thread and 1" wide elastic.
Now make your pattern. Since this is for a stretchy fabric, I subtracted 1" from the total measurements.
Follow the below steps:
Voila! Your very own pencil skirt!
