HACKED………IKEA…Take a Peek at the New DIY Trend Taking over the Flat Pack Set……

 

YOU just gotta love IKEA…No matter what we go in to the Swedish Mega store to purchase..it seems we all come out with a few more Brown Flat Packs & Allen Key Sets than we bargained for… Always…

Well now, lets add some decorator savvy to our  standard IKEA pieces..and take it up a notch..or 2..


Take this Ikea Eterge below, Its come standard in black or white….A few spray cans of gold paint later..and Voila!..a perfectly Parisian Vignette for the most discerning of home decorators…I have actually tried this..and it worked..and it looks fab!

Next item hot on the DYI trend..is Motif Decals..Purchased fro the USA, these amazing O’verlays are lightweight, decorative fretwork panels. You can paint them and attach easily to the furniture, Bookshelves or Mirrors….Instant Upgrade…. Without Cashing in your FF Points…Love. Love. Love.

And finally..The Pièce_de_Résistance. ..Inspired by the Edgy Slightly Punky Grafitti Days….the IKEA Dresser….which comes in Plain Pine and can be Dressed how ever you like..Let the kids go crazy with the paint tubes in Neon colours…and watch their Creativity flow ..and flow….

Move over Snake Serum..There’s a New Kid in Town…..Dragons Blood Sculpting Gel…..Will You Join The Hollywood Trend for Better Looking Skin???

Move over Snake Serum..There’s a New Kid in Town…..Dragons Blood Sculpting Gel…..Will You Join The Hollywood Trend for Better Looking Skin???

Snake Serum and Bee Venom are sooo 2011….Get with the Hollywood A-Listers and  add a Little Dragons Blood to your nightstand…Dubbed the ‘Liquid Facelift‘ Dragon’s Blood works by adding must have volume to sallow , drab skin.
The gel, which reduces skin sagging while boosts elasticity, is actually made from the red sap of the sangre de drago tree.

And Lady Gaga has allegedly been using the cream to prepare for the Golden Globes. And allegedly Angelina Jolie. And allegedly Blake Lively. And allegedly Gwyneth Paltrow…Surely All these allegedlys’ cant be wrong??

Not allegedly, but fully factual…My 72 year Mother has started using the Skin Physics version and it was actually she who made me aware that such a cream existed…I disputed her claim that it was the next big thing…because, i said, “Mum..Dragons don’t really exist” however she assures me..its doing its thing, and it feels lovely on the skin…..and Let me tell you…my Mother would know..she can sniff out the next best thing in the cosmetics department a mile off…She has an uncanny knack for doing such a thing…Some may say..Cosmetic Junkie??

The Rodial Dragons Blood Sculpting Gel, was ear marked as one of Vanity Fairs Top 5 Beauty Products… & The Skin Physics Dragon Blood Sculpting Gel was listed on Madisons Magazine 5 to Try..

Soooo…I’m gonna give it a whirl…I will get me some Dragons Blood and slap it on my face…and see which comes first..Smoother Firmer Skin…or Breathing Fire…???

Wish Me Luck….Sx

Are Pyjamas the Fashionistas New Outer Wear..Or a just Fashion Faux Paux??

Are Pyjamas the Fashionistas New Outer Wear..Or a just Fashion Faux Paux??

On Friday I drove my daughter to school ..in my pyjamas…

Ok..there it’s out there..Granted, I have been working from home this week due to my recent surgery, and  I must state the PJs in question Are Peter Alexander…However..it still begs the question..Am I one of the many mothers out there taking the easy way out and not dressing pre drop off..or fast on the heels of the new Hollywood Trend…

Glamorous Silky SleepWear has hit the runways and Red Carpets and the A- Listers are are embracing this trend whole heartedly..May Hugh Hefner has been onto something all along…

I will also own the fact that I am actually a repeat offender..I have be known to duck into the supermarket late at night in PJ’s and my Ugg Boots..for the late night milk and bread run..However on this particular day in question..I also paid a visit to my local Barista for my morning coffee…Whilst passing by I saw a mature / slightly tubby male Cyclist in his all red way too tight lycra getting  coffee….and decided..my floral PA PJ were tots acceptable…

There is new currently a new law being discussed in New Zealand, where it will be deemed illegal dress in your fave PJ’s and don them as outer wear..Personally this is taking things too far..Some Sleepwear is far more conservative than the current trends in daytime fashion…

Are you in Favour of Inner wear staying In..Or taking it out to the streets??..Sx
