Creative Sunday

CREATIVE OBSESSIONS
I’ve been learning how to crochet for almost a week and I’m addicted to it‼ 

I learned knitting a year ago and made so many projects like beanies, scarves, wrap around etc, and I wanted to learn how to crochet(I’d read that it’s faster and I ain’t that patient) and I finally went out and bought a needle and was instantly in love with the technique‼ Crochet is so much easier and faster, so many projects to try on. Just within a 4 days of span I made my own crochet beanie (don’t judge me, I love wearing beanies‼) and I made it in under 2 hours, isn't that amazing?


So the point of this post is that I wanna start a new weekly post

 called “Creative Sunday” in which I can share all my creative 

projects like knitting, crochet, sewing, art and any other DIYs.

I’d also like to invite you guys to share your ideas, requests and
 suggestions for this new section. 

Please leave it your comments below.


Meanwhile, here are pictures of my completed projects.

TV shows, fashion and I’m back..
Hi, sorry for not having posted on the blog for a long, long time. I was unable to access my account due to some domain hacking. The blog is now 90% functional and I’m trying my best to keep up with the lost time. Thank you so much for being here. Let jump into today’s post shall we?

Lately I’ve been addicted to multiple TV shows and the fashion and glamour in it. I’m obsessed with the tough look women are posing in the shows like Laura Vandervoort in Bitten.

A biker jacket or a loose knit sweater, fitted pair of leggings/jeans, simple shirt underneath and sexy boots or heels, amazing curly blonde hair Laura Vandervoort has definitely scored a 10/10 from me in the fashion run. Wish I could say the same for the show though.

Here are few of my favourite looks from multiple shows that I've been watching (Please don’t judge, I’m not a couch potato: P)







I also love the simple free, laidback and no effort look like Eliza Taylor in the show, The 100. I also love Marie Avgeropoulos look in the show.




So what are your favorite shows and looks? Let me know.

Shopping Taboo



Are you a shopaholic? Are you intending to do something about it? Yes??
Then you should have a Shopping ban!
I was introduced to this (life saving) idea by Tanvi’s fabulous blog. I was so impressed by her commitment that I decided to do it myself. 
I’m going to start my ban from feb.7th onwards. February being my birthday month, it would be hard for me not to shop (plus I have a very, very low self-control).
So starting from the next 7th to June 7th I’m going on a shopping ban. Next Saturday onwards I’ll be dedicating a special post just for this ban.
Things that are banned :
  • Clothes (all kinds!)
  • Shoes
  •    Accessories/Jewelry
  •    Bags/Purses/Clutches
  •    Cosmetics 
  •    Electronics/Gadgets


Things that are allowed:
*   Food
*   Water
*   Home Supplies
*   Medicines 
*   Toiletries (shampoo, soap, etc.)

”THROUGH A RAPIST’S EYES”



(PLS TAKE TIME TO READ THIS. it may save a life.) Reblog this!
  
It seems that alot of attackers use some tactic to get away with violence. Not many people know how to take care of themselves when faced with such a
situation. Everyone should read this especially each n every girl in this world. THOUGHT THIS WAS GOOD INFO TO PASS ALONG…

FYI - Through a rapist’s eyes! A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interviewed on what they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:



1] The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle.
They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun! , braid, or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed. They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair. Women with short hair are not common targets.

2] The second thing men look for is clothing. They will look for women who’s clothing is easy to remove quickly. Many of them carry scissors around to cut clothing.

3] They also look for women using their cell phone, searching through their purse or doing other activities while walking because they are off guard and can be easily overpowered.

4] The number one place women are abducted from / attacked at is grocery store parking lots.

5] Number two is office parking lots/garages.

6] Number three is public restrooms.

7] The thing about these men is that they are looking to grab a woman and quickly move her to a second location where they don’t have to worry about getting caught.

8] If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only takes a minute or two for them to realize that going after you isn’t worth it because it will be time-consuming.

9] These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas,or other similar objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands.

10] Keys are not a deterrent because you have to get really close to the attacker to use them as a weapon. So, the idea is to convince these guys you’re not worth it.

———————————————————————————————————————————-

POINTS THAT WE SHOULD REMEMBER:


1] If someone is following behind you on a street or in a garage or with you in an elevator or stairwell, look them in the face and ask them a question, like what time is it, or make general small talk:
can’t believe it is so cold out here, we’re in for a bad winter. Now that you’ve seen their faces and could identify them in a line- up, you lose appeal as a target.
 
2] If someone is coming toward you, hold out your hands in front of you and yell Stop or Stay back! Most of the rapists this man talked to said they’d leave a woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would 
not be afraid to fight back. Again, they are looking for an EASY target.

3] If you carry pepper spray (this instructor was a huge advocate of it and carries it with him wherever he goes,) yelling I HAVE PEPPER SPRAY and holding it out will be a deterrent.

4] If someone grabs you, you can’t beat them with strength but you can do it by outsmarting them. If you are grabbed around the waist from behind, pinch the attacker either under the arm between the elbow and
armpit or in the upper inner thigh - HARD. One woman in a class this guy taught told him she used the underarm pinch on a guy who was trying to date rape her and was so upset she broke through the skin and tore out muscle strands the guy needed stitches. Try pinching yourself in those places as hard as you can stand it; it really hurts.

5] After the initial hit, always go for the groin. I know from a particularly unfortunate experience that if you slap a guy’s parts it is extremely painful. You might think that you’ll anger the guy and make him want to hurt you more, but the thing these rapists told our
instructor is that they want a woman who will not cause him a lot of trouble. Start causing trouble, and he’s out of there.

6] When the guy puts his hands up to you, grab his first two fingers and bend them back as far as possible with as much pressure pushing down on them as possible. The instructor did it to me without using
much pressure, and I ended up on my knees and both knuckles cracked audibly.

7] Of course the things we always hear still apply. Always be aware of your surroundings, take someone with you if you can and if you see any odd behavior, don’t dismiss it, go with your instincts. You may feel
little silly at the time, but you’d feel much worse if the guy really was trouble.

——————————————————————————————————————————-

FINALLY, PLEASE REMEMBER THESE AS WELL ….

I know you are smart enough to know these pointers but there will be some, where you will go “hmm I must remember that” After reading forward it to someone you care about, never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.


1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do it.

2. Learned this from a tourist guide to New Orleans : if a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you…. chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or
purse than you and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!

3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car: Kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won’t see you but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping,eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON’T DO THIS! The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side,put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU CLOSE the DOORS , LEAVE.
 
5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
a. Be aware: look around your car as someone may be
hiding at the passenger side , peek into your car, inside the passenger side floor, and in the back seat. ( DO THIS TOO BEFORE RIDING A TAXI CAB) .
b. If you! u are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
c. Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)
 
6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot).

7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN!

8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP IT! It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked “for help” into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.
  
Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it and it’s better safe than sorry.

I'm back!!


Hi everyone!! I apologize for my very long absence from blogging without any notice. I’m very sorry I was unable to answer many of your comments. I’m also sorry about not visiting the blogs of my fellow bloggers.
The reason I was gone for so long is I have recently undergone a major surgery and I’m still in recovery.
But I’m trying to get back to my normal routine now and I’ll be blogging regularly now onwards.
I would also like to welcome new readers and followers of my blog. I’ll soon be visiting all your pages and catch up on what I’ve missed for so many days.
Look out for new posts and fashion updates..

DIY- Ballet flats

Here's an easy way to make some really cute slippers! Hopefully my instructions will be easy to understand! There are other ways to make these, but this is probably the easiest way. Make any changes where you prefer. 

I'm a size 7.5 ( My foot measures 24.5cms) so the pattern is to fit me - please adjust to fit.
First of all, download 'Slipper base'  template & 'Slipper top' template. 
Print, this will be your template to cut your fabic. If your foot is larger, I would say adding the extra length of your measured foot to the tails of the slipper top and to the sole would make for a perfect fit.


I'm using a cute print form Moda's Wonderland Bloom! Along with Moda Essential Dots for the inside fabric. 
You will need to cut:
Base ~ 4 from wadding, 2 from interfacing, 2 inside peices and 2 bottom pieces - You may want to find some non slip fabric for this, or something a little more durable.

*Make sure you flip your template so you have a left & right foot piece!



Slipper top ~ 2 from you feature fabric, 2 from wadding, 2 from the medium interfacing & 2 from your inside fabric to match the base.
Once you have all your peices cut, assemble them as shown below - 
Base: Bottom peice, Interfacing, 2x wadding peices (for extra padding) and then your inside peice.

Slipper top needs to assembled - wadding peice, Inside peice (facing up) and the feature peice (facing down) so fabric is right sides together, then interfacing on top.
Once you have pinned them, stitch around each base holding all 5 layers together
Then sew around the inner curve of your top piece
Unpin the top peices, and you will need to pull the top fabric around to the other side ~ wiggle and press till nice and flat.
Topstitch around the inner curve...

Pin the tails of the top peice with feature fabric (top fabric) right sides together, sew along the edge securely - here I've added a binding to hide the edge or you can leave it raw.
Pin the top section to your base with your feature fabric and outside of bottom piece to the inside.

Carefully sew around the outside edge ensuring you're sewing through all layers really well, overlock or zig zag around the edge too.
Turn inside out - and you have a lovely pair of Ballet Slippers

Now embellish! These ones got a little bow on each side.

Well I hope that was easy enough to understand - a bit confusing when I read back through it afterwards, but I tried.

And here are some others I’ve made..
