Outfit of the day post and golfing

This is my classy golfing outfit πŸ˜‰

The other week was Father’s day. My Dad was working all day so we did something late in the week. I went to a driving range with James’ family. Basically this is a big field that you hit golf balls into as hard as you can. It’s a great way to get all of that pent up anger out!

James let me borrow his cute golf hat, it totally doesn’t go with the outfit but oh well!

The club was practically bigger than me ^_^ I don’t usually play sports, and when I say that, I mean EVER.

Everyone had a really good time and it was fun to try something new!

Outfit: -Shoes modified from Target -Dress from Target -Stockings from Myer -Jacket from Angelic Pretty -Cardigan given to me by my Mother

Also one of my ACEO’s was featured in an article about ACEO’s over on this blog: http://www.azealofzebras.blogspot.com/ If you go around half way down my fortune teller is there πŸ˜€

On another note I’m sitting on the edge of my chair waiting to find out the top 5 nominees for the Nuffnang Awards!!

What kind of outfit would you all wear golfing?

Outfit of the Day and Preview of Hair Tutorial

So outfit post! This outfit was from last week before I ruined my hair.

How are you all doing? I’m very excited today, I can’t tell you why yet but it’s exciting! As soon as I sort out the details I’ll let you all know πŸ˜€

Β 

Skirt- Angelic Pretty Everything else- Random off brand junk. I do looove those shoes.

Mostly what I wanted to show you with this outfit is the hair, this is a variation of one of the tutorials that I was requested to do. As soon as I fix up my hair colour I’ll be able to post it!

It works better with hair a bit shorter than mine but it’s a great time saver as it takes around 5 minutes to do! Nice and easy for a casual outfit!

Outfit of the Day and Presents from Nuffnang

As a lot of you would know I’m withΒ NuffnangΒ for my blog advertising and I love them to death!

Who doesn’t like getting presents right? As well as organizing my advertising they have also built a community for bloggers which I love being a part of. It’s kind of like a big family and because they are based here in the Asia Pacific area it’s not like talking to someone on the other side of the world!

And they send me presents which rocks!

Outfit- Skirt and jacket: Angelic Pretty Stockings- Myer Beret- Portmans Shoes- some place in the City, customized

Hmm it feels very heavy! I wonder what’s inside it? Open it up and all the Nuffy goodness pours out!

First thing to come out is a $10 Coles Myer gift voucher! Yaaay! Nuffnang is having a competition at the moment where the blogger who spends this voucher in the most creative or frugal way wins a $100 voucher, I have an awesome idea which I’m going to try out tomorrow so wish me luck!

And a lovely letter welcoming me to the Nuffnang family πŸ˜€

Guess what? I designed that little guy in the corner of the letter! How cute is it that they actually used my silly sketch on their letterhead ^_^

Now the rest of the awesome stuff… This is a sample pack of Redken hair supplies for girls! How cool is it that the samples are actually in usable sizes instead of those stupid little packets? I’m going to try it out and let you know how it works on my hair!

And there is a bottle of Blackberry/Vanilla tea from Spring Valley and John West Tuna with Beans. The tea was super yummy! I haven’t tried the tuna yet, I think I might let James have it because he’s a big fan of beans ^_^

And something which will be important later on in this post… a matching pack of Redken hair supplies for boys! Big sample sizes and information books in this one too πŸ˜€ Also there is a packet of Leggo’s Italian Beef Casserole base thingy which will be my dinner tonight! Thank you Nuffnang for feeding me for a day ^_^

Taadaa! All of the fun stuff together!

I mentioned that Nuffnang is having a competition with who can spend their Coles Myer voucher in the most creative/frugal way so I decided to put my thinking cap on and come up with something fun to do with it… Did I not mention that my thinking cap is actually the box that my items came in?

Then I decided that instead of entering that competition I would make up my own… May I present “THE MOST CREATIVE USE OF PACKAGING”

I fashioned the tissue paper the presents were wrapped in into a beautiful gigantic bow!

Super adorable and attractive right? I totally deserve a special prize for creativity and cuteness! Got to make sure it’s straight! Don’t worry I’m going to go buy my actually competition entry tomorrow πŸ˜›

Now if you remember I mentioned before you should take notice of the men’s hair products from Redken… I decided to experiment with them on James! He wasn’t so keen on the idea especially seeing as he shaves his head. I said too bad! After chasing him around the room for 10 minutes I finally pinned him down πŸ˜€

Apparently it was very cold ^_^ It smelled delicious though!

Make sure to rub it in well, lather rinse and repeat! Poor sad James he looks so miserable… oh well!

He was only sad for a minute though because then this happened…..

Giant afro hair of doom! Very suave! I’m sure I’ll be fighting all the ladies off him with a stick XD

Anyway if you guys were wondering how to get one of these gift baskets for yourselves, all you have to do is sign up with Nuffnang and they’ll send one out! Here is the link to register, make sure to put my URL in as the “Referred By URL” if you end up joining ^_^

Well I’m off to enjoy my Casserole thingy for dinner now πŸ˜€

What’s the coolest free thing you guys have every got/won? Are you signed up with Nuffnang?

Outfit of the Day, dinner and Pink Gundams

Ok so you all kind of saw this outfit last week but oh well, I thought I’d post these anyway!

James bought himself some new lights for his photography and wanted to test them out, who better to pose πŸ˜‰

Oh also sorry for missing ACEO Friday, it will be back next week πŸ™‚

Obviously this was before I dyed my hair again , I have a backlog of photos to post from then!

Outfit consists of white stockings, modified white heels, BtSSB Sleeping Alice jsk, Thrift store Cardigan, AP bow, red Target jacket, Pearl choker and a bunch of other jewelery. There are flowers in my hair too. I just love my flowers. I’ve actually just recieved a shipment from Yuki so I’m going to be doing a couple of tutorials and things with them, look forward to it!

And I wanted to make you all jealous with my awesome pork curry for dinner the other night. I looove pork curry.

Now something which is sure to make all of you into Decoden smile… DECO GUNDAM! You read right, it’s actually a Gundam figure that someone has deco’d. How awesome is this?

I’m not sure where these pictures are from originally so credit to whoever owns them.

I love the little star coming from it’s gun!

If I were going to pilot a Gundam I hope they would have the curtacy to decorate it like this!

Now I have a question to ask you guys… is there anything specific that you would like to see on my blog? Is there a particular design of nail art you want a tutorial on? Hair style? Want to see a shop reviewed? Want to know more about me personally? Have a question you’re dying to ask? Desperate to know what shade of lipstick I wear?

Well now is your chance to ask! Just leave me a comment and I’ll add it to my “To Do” list. Or maybe just more outfit posts πŸ˜‰

Back! Outfit of the day, the world of Violet's Shoes (Mini Tutorial)

Outfit time!

Firstly thank you all for your well wishes while I’ve been ill! It made me feel much better every morning to wake up to everyone’s lovely comments πŸ™‚ I’m all rested up now and should be fine to blog 3 times a week again!

Unfortunately I’ve run out of jewels to finish my decoden tutorial at the moment but I’ll be right on it when the next batch arrive! My next post will be some of the things I’ve been deco-ing lately so you can all get your rhinestone fix πŸ˜› Actually I did something a little bit funny with my deco while I was sick… I’m going to keep you guessing until next post though!

Now on to my outfit… OMG I love these shoes. They are incredibly painful but they look so pretty! Here is a close up…

Sexy right? The cut out bit is velvet so they even feel nice.

This brings me to today’s topic… shoes. It may be hard to believe but up until about 6 years ago I was the biggest tomboy you imagine. I refused to wear skirts and you would be hard pressed to find me in anything other than my scuffed old pair of converse chucks. In fact that’s where my old screen name chucks_bitch came from.

These are my newest acquisition. Cute but still comfy so I can shop all day, oh and work etc. They were a birthday present from my Mum, thanks Mum!

So long story short I missed out on those years where young girls are supposed to learn to walk in heels and I’m just doing it now. I got the first pair that I regularly wear last Christmas and haven’t been able to stop since. So much pain though! I’m very stubborn so I picked the highest most ridiculous pair and assumed I would be fine… I have now learned my lesson and am easing in much more sloooowly.

Β 

Mini Tutorial time!

Β 

Now a couple of people have asked me how I did this. It really couldn’t be simpler.

Step 1. Buy cute simple shoes on sale. Step 2. Buy matching flowers. Step 3. Get some thread and a needle and sew the flowers on to the shoes. Note, don’t sew through the leather just in case you ever change your mind! Step 4. Enjoy your new awesomely cute Hime-Style shoes πŸ˜€

See easy…

Lastly are any of you guys who use Nuffnang having problems when you log in? I can log in but I my stats won’t seem to show up… Just wanted to know if I’m the only one before I go and bug tech support!

Anyway it’s good to be back! Hope you enjoyed the outfit post ^_^

Outfit of the day, now with 50% more cake!

Currently this is my faaavorite outfit!

Most of that has to do with the fact that it includes my awesome shoes! They were on sale, so I bought them and added flowers to make them Hime style. Much cuter!

I also found opaque stockings on sale a Myer for $7.50! And they are *actually* opaque.

James also surprised me with this belated “Un-Birthday” cake. He made it himself, how cute is it? Btw yes my real name is Nikki but I’ve been Violet online so long now that I prefer it!

Loooove it! It was so sweet and yummy, we could only eat a tiny bit because it was so rich.

This is just a quick snapshot, see I’m not glamorous all the time πŸ˜› It’s getting cold here in Aus so at home it’s comfy pj’s and jumpers all the way!

Ah I have the best boyfriend ever πŸ˜€
