Sweater Weather

 Via ElleMilla

The first chill that slowly creeps in the early fall mornings makes us reach out for the warmth and coziness of  sweaters. And they have never been more versatile and attractive. The range is wide so there is something for everyone.


What seems to be in the rise is the chunky oversized sweater. It wards off cold and promises warm hugs and  pleasant coziness.

Following the shirt trends, sweaters now come in different sleeve variations, but the most popular have oversized and bell shaped sleeves.

An interesting option is the so called sweater dress which was a "tunic" in the past :)

Make an Unforgettable Fall Picnic


 Images via Pinterest


Autumn in all its beautiful and warm colors paints the perfect scenery for a fall picnic.

Chose a place where you will create a romantic and unforgettable day out. Take warm wooly blankets (and pillows) if you plan to sit on the ground. Fill a wicker basket with a thermos filled with your preferred drink and cups, or a bottle of white wine and glasses.

A cheese platter to tickle the palates: cheese, bread, crackers, olives and seasonal fruit (grapes, apples, walnuts), maybe marmalade or honey for those with a sweet tooth.

Spice it up with a good book and good music.

Tea Light Candle Holder DIY




Polymer clay is a great material because you can use it to cover glass or metal.

As I didn't have a candle holder ready at hand, I thought it would be fab if I make one myself!

If you work with polymer clay, then I guess you have everything needed for this DIY. 



* A small glass jar

* White polymer clay

* 2 other colors of polymer clay

* A metal leaf

* Rigid and flexible blades

* A cutter

* Liquid polymer clay



Take the white polymer clay and condition it well, then slip it through a pasta machine. Do the same with the other color – I chose yellow, but slip this through a narrower opening on the machine. Cut both into squares, first the white, next the yellow and put the metal leaf on top.

Repeat this step with the other color – in my case – the green polymer clay.

Now you have “a roll” that you have to cut in half and join those two halves one on top of the other. Cut the roll vertically to get strips. Use the strips to cover the jar.

The other variant is the Mokume Gane technique.

Using a flexi knife and the cutter, cut the roll but do not separate the cut parts.

Cut the roll horizontally.

Optionally you can use small different shape (cookie) cutters to make shapes through which you can see the candle light.

When the jar is all covered up, bake it at 100⁰C for about 30 minutes.

Tip: If the polymer clay is still hard and it is difficult to cover the jar, apply a little liquid polymer clay onto the jar before you apply the polymer clay.

Velvet Fall

The velvet trend remained steadfast this fall.

And it is the best fabric that we needed to linger just a bit more, because of its luxurious and rich finish, appealing feel and delicately soft quality. Along with jackets, dresses are the  most wanted pieces because they can transform a look immediately.


You can pair a velvet jacket with a pair of jeans for a more casual look and wear a velvet dress for a glam night out. With the right shoes and accessories, you can make your velvet a statement piece.
