DIY Style Creation: Studded Collar

This is my 2nd Vlog and I’m so excited to be doing something on one of the seasons HOTTEST trends and one of my biggest obsessions – STUDS! Using earrings, I studded the collar of my denim shirt. This quick and easy fix is not only interchangeable, but great at adding that extra detail and splash to an ordinary shirt! What you’ll need: – Few packs of studs (mine are from H&M) – Denim Shirt (or any collared shirt) Hope all of you will try out this amazing project and I want to see pictures of your designs!! ~Love CTina xo

Fire Engine Red

To follow on my Fall 2012 Trend Report yesterday, I thought it was most appropriate to sport my fiery-red leggings. I am looking forward to Fall/Winter – just so I can purchase a new wardrobe – but I am very upset when this HOT weather starts to cool down, and my open toe shoes become closed toe! ~Love CTina xo Tank & Leggings – H&M (recent) // Vest – DIY creation // Scarf – Alexander McQueen // Wedges – Zigi NY // Bag – Louis Vuitton // Bracelet – H&M // Watch – Michael Kors // Rings – Vintage // Sunglasses – House of Harlow 1960

How To: Candle Holder

I’ve been very inspired lately to do as many DIY projects as possible! I have a ton of candles at home and I wanted a unique candle holder, but couldn’t find the perfect one, until I came up with this idea, using sticks (I found by the lake), shells (some I collected on the beaches of Portugal and others were store bought), and sand.  This very simple project takes no time and can be used as center pieces on a table or as an accent on a bookshelf! Enjoy loves!! ~Love CTina xo What you’ll need:

How To: Key Caps

I always have tons of keys on one key ring, that there are days, especially nights, I can never distinguish which key is for what! I knew I could go to a key store and buy the key caps, but how boring is that! I wanted them to be stylish, bright and full of glitter, which is why when I saw that using nail polish would work I just had to do it! Happy crafting! ~Love Ctina xo What you’ll need: – Nail polish (I used a base color, Sephora & China Glaze, then glitter as a top coat, OPI & Sephora by OPI) – 2 or more keys
