DIY; Tasseled Basket

I love a little funk in my wardrobe. this Tassel basket is exactly that. Perfect for the summer, markets roaming, a day at the beach or even with a simple black dress or "BF jeans and white tee" outfit.
It is easy and fun!! 
~Happy Weekend~
What you need;
- A basket ( I have had mine for a while, so I am going to re-invent something I already own)
- Tassels (in Curacao, get them at Ackerman, check other local fabric or trimmings stores, or make them yourself; watch "this tutorial here")
- Optional; Needle and thread

Decide which color scheme your going for; you could do colorful rainbow, or ombre colored. 
I simply tucked the loop in and tied them in between the basket. You could also sew or "hot glue gun" them on. 
Et Voila! A funky style, Tassel basket

1 Playsuit, 3 Ways

One playsuit, three ways, this shows how versatile one piece of clothing can be. Make it a sporty look by wearing slip-on sneaks, and a trendy bucket bag. Make it a total different outfit by wearing a skirt, using the upper half as top. Dress it up for night time by accessorizing with a belt and ankle-strap block heels.
Pick a look, any look all would work out sometime this weekend!

Summer Sunshine

Yellow is the color of the summer. It is bright and a happy color, even if your summers day isn't that shiny.
Paired with a lace top and straw accessories completes the summer look.

One of the most comfortable summer things are wide legged pants or culottes (a shorter, calf length wide-legged pant). Wear it with a breezy crochet or lace crop top and your ready to take the summer-time weekend!

Beauty Buzz; Peachy Summer Look

This week try out a new lightweight, fresh new summer look. You don't need a lot, just a bronzy cheek  and a peachy lip. Tie your hair back to keep your crazy "fly-away hair" in tact (like me). I used Bobbi Brown  Duo Mascara (one side is Extreme length and the other is No Smudge waterproof), Ideal for vacations along the sea.
Tone your face with fleur d'orange water (orange blossom water), it is refreshing and energizing. 
 Then moisturize, I use a moisturizer with SPF in it and I recently started using a BB cream. The BB cream is nice and light weight with a higher SPF. it evens out red spots and gives the skin a glow without looking like a cake.
I use my fingers to apply the BB cream, the warmth of your hands will make it set well.
Apply Bronzer with a flat brush, right underneath your cheekbones and on your temples  in upward motion.
 Smile slightly and apply a peachy-coral blush to the apples of your cheeks.
This season I am into the peaces and cream orange lipstick to complete the look.
 Et Voila! Your summer look, ready to go!

Weekend by the sea

Rediscovering my island is a delight. Last weekend we drove around and ended up at a fishers bay Boca Sami, St. Michiel. we had an amazing lunch of fresh fish and "funchi hasa" something like polenta fries. For dessert local ladies walk around selling fresh pastries like "tert di coco" a coconut pie-like pastry. 
Spending time along the water is amazing and here in Curaçao this is possible everyday!
