DIY; Yoga mat strap

This one's for all the yogi's!
Throughout the summer I rocked a neon yellow strap, wear n tear snapped the strap, just in time for my new fall colored strap. 
Below you find the easy way to make a yoga mat strap, all supplies can be found at a craft or fabric store.
So get crafting and get your sun saluting on.
Namaste.

Up-done Lemon Cake

By now you might know that I love baking, but always choose the easy way out.
This recipe is easy peasy and looks fancy pansy! 
What I did is prep a regular packaged cake mix (which required egg, butter and milk)
and then added some triple sec soaked fruit and almond slivers to up the ante. 
Perfect recipe for the weekend ;)
1. Soak the sliced pear and raspberries in triple sec (or other fruity liquor)
2. While mixing the cake mix, add some lemon zest and a squeeze of the juice in the batter 
3. in regular cake form, add half of the batter, then the fruit (don't add the access liquid that they soaked in, but keep it to brush over the baked cake) sprinkle some almond slivers and pour over the remaining cake batter
Dust with some confectioners sugar before serving... Et Voila! 
Bon App├ętit

Denim, Leopard and Leather

Pairing some of my favorites and I guess these materials are historic classics to begin with. 

Starting with Denim which was first sold in 18oo's to the working class people. Now every designer in history must have used denim at one point in their collection and I can't think  of a world without denim.
Leopard (animal print) was trending in the 1950's, mostly worn by musicians, models and movie stars. It was a rebellious thing to wear and worn around the bohemian movement.
and finally leather, which played a big role in the development of civilization, using it for basic needs up to 1300 BC. which might be one of the oldest materials that made it through out the years into fashion. 

Now how's that for you Monday morning education in fashion?
