Inspiration: Runner shorts

b9bfa01940c64d4cfda1191b5ab61910 copy

One of the Must pieces of this past summer was the sports shorts or running shorts. This very 80’s aerobic/sports fashion garment came roaring back this summer 2014… but it seems its persisting on to this fall fashion trends. Personally I like the cut and how comfortable they are. These loved-hated shorts that we always visualize in pastel or neon color (because of the decade that they reminds us), are now back in more modern materials such as leather or sequined  fabric or prints. Here is a small selection of some of my favorites. This will help us inspire us for our next DIY. Whitch one is your favorite? Continue reading

DIY Overalls with pockets

Plan B anna evers DIY short overalls with pockets

Hello DIY‘ers! After a looooong wedding weekend in Burgos, I’m ready to show you more DIY‘s! (Check out some beautiful wedding location pics on my INSTAGRAM) Today I will show you how I transformed a winter overalls (an impulse buy, without thinking) in to a much more practical summer overalls. I mention this because when I saw these overalls in the store I fell in love and bought them without thinking that these aren’t a very practical garment when you have to take 30 layers of clothing off every time you have to go to the bathroom in winter. (you can imagine what I mean, right?) Apart from this small detail, the bloody overalls had no pockets! And let’s face it, overalls that don’t have pockets to put your hands and strike an interesting pose…ARE NOT COOL! So here is a little DIY transformation: DIY overalls with pockets.

DIY Toilet bag

Hello DIY’ers, here is the last post from our DIY Travel Kit series. I loved making this travel kit, I’ve been lucky to use it a couple of times now and I would use it again next weekend for a little wedding getaway.

In this post I will show you how easy it is to make a cosmetic bag or as popularly known as a toilet Bag. The truth is that this is a multifunction bag, I have called it a toilet bag because to me it is very comfortable to carry my toiletries together (creams, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, among other things…) But the truth is that you can use this type of bag to carry shoes or also keep dirty clothes separate from clean clothes inside your suitcase… the inside contents are for you to decide 😉

Inspiration: bottles as vases

99eb9bdddd0f5f79589d62ce08664448 copy

One of the items I use a lot to decorate my house and I can get for free, is to reuse bottles or jars as vases. I love to recycle these pieces, the wine bottles, water bottles or soda bottles (glass bottles of course) can be used very nicely in different compositions playing with the heights and shapes of the bottles. It definitely gives a special touch to any corner of your home… and did I already mentioned that they are free? I don’t think twice about asking for water bottles to take home in restaurants … and so far I have not received any no’s.

Here you will see a small selection of images of bottles to use, how to use them and how to be inspired to integrate it into your personal style. Hope you like it.

Hello DIY‘ers! Are you traveling this summer? I hope so! Here I present you with a new post from our DIY Travel Kit series.

One of our fears when traveling is our security, especially if going to an unknown place and we are staying in a hostel or hotel… Today, many hotels have safety boxes in the rooms, but some don’t. This happened to me when I traveled to Thailand last summer. You are put in the position of going out with all your money, cards, documents, passport on you, and eventually you end up overwhelmed. In this case, you can use what I have called the DIY secret hanger. Here you can store whatever you want without being noticed where your stuff is.

Want to make your own? It’s easy!
