A Pintastic Week - 20.09.2015


How are you all? I hope you had a splendid week. I have some little gems again for you! I'm also planning my autumn/winter wardrobe, so stay tuned for a post on that.

- To my fellow Belgians (or people who plan on visiting), I came across an article about a new hotspot in Gent called Used Book Café. It went straight on my list of places to visit in my own little country. (The article is in Dutch by the way)

- Hanne wrote a book in which sewing-related terms are translated in three languages: Dutch, French and English. No more frustration because you don't know how to say 'understitching' in Dutch!

- These new lipsticks by KIKO have great colours, I particularly like number six, Melodious Wine. 

- I recently came across The Iron You, a blog filled with healthy recipes that look absolutely delicious, like this cauliflower casserole.

- I think I might give this DIY Helmut Lang skirt a go. 

- I just discovered The Long & Winding Bobbin, and although it is not a recent project, I really love this dress she made.

- How pretty is the cocktail dress that Sheryll from Pattern Scissors Cloth made? And how hard is it not to want to sew this kind of dresses all the time?

A Pintastic Week - 13.09.2015

Hi there!

How are you all doing? I thought it was about time to do one of these posts again! The blogging world has created some beauties yet again, so take a look and enjoy!

- About the picture above: I came across this artist today, who made pinup versions of a few Disney princesses. I hope he will do some more in the future!

- Chelsea King created beautiful nail art inspired by a pair of Valentino booties. 

- When I saw the pattern in Burdastyle, it originally didn't do me that much - I neither liked nor disliked it. But now that I've seen the version that Sallie Oh made, I might have to reconsider... I think she looks stunning! 

- Trine made a Nettie dress for her daughter and I think she looks both tough and feminine in it. I especially like the graphic print of the fabric. 

- Although I liked the dress she made at first, I think the refashion that Debbie did on it is a great success! 

- This DIY skirt by Geneva Vanderzeil is on my list.

- This nightstand makeover on A Beautiful Mess is both chic and bright.
