Chain Headband

Good evening, today the sun was out a bit finally which makes a change from all this bad weather we've been having. I thought tonight I would upload some photos of a new headband which I got a few weeks ago when the weather was really hot ! I admit the photos I have taking are not the best of me but I was in a bit of a hurry to take them. I love my new chain headband I think it looks very oriental which makes me love it even more :) ! I am fan of the floral ones however I don't think they suit me as much. I feel the chain one suits my style a bit more :).  I got the headband for only £2 from Dorothy Perkins.

 I got the crop top from New Look in the sale a few weeks ago. 

I went a bit colourful on the eyes by mixing pink and green with a black gel liner 

Eyeshadow: Purple and Pink from a Rimmel eye palette 
Liner on top: Maybelline Black Gel Liner 
Liner on bottom: Kohl pencil by Barrym green 21 
Mascara: Thick and Fast Black

H&M to collaborate with Maison Martin Margiela?

 Hello my little fashionistas I have some exciting news. When exploring the web today I came across an article about how H&M is collaborating with Maison Martin Margiela this time to create a collection. However from the article it has not defiantly been confirmed! 
Below I have added a few images of garments from past collection from Maison Martin Margiela. From looking at these I am very excited to see what will be created. 

 Hmmmm.... I wonder was will be created for H&M.

A few years back Maison Martin Margiela teamed with Damiani to create a 14 piece jewellery collection. I think that the collection was beautiful. The jewellery was big and junky and would stick out and make a statement when worn. 
I am keeping my fingers crossed that Maison Martin Margiela will be doing a collection with H&M.

DIY Headband Tutorial Inspired by D&G

I had this old black velvet headband lying around so I decided to customise it a few weeks ago.  I was really pleased with how it turned out.  So decided I  would post up a little DIY tutorial on how I did it. I got my inspiration to make the hair band from Dolce and Gabbana's headbands (picture at the end). 
You will need a hairband, superglue/fabric glue, cottonwood bud, scissors and some cart bits I've used an old broken pearl necklace and to add a bit of gold I used a southern comfort necklace which I got from a club one night lol :). 

 I cut the string between the beads to get one individual beads. I then played around what sort of pattern I wanted to along my headband. 
 I then got the glue and for a more accurate and easier application of the glue I used a cotton wool stick to apply the glue onto each of the beads. 
 I kept going until the band was covered in beads from one end to the other. 
 I decided to add a few gems to mine at the end to make it appear more full and to make it a bit more glamorous. I really like how the D&G one has been cover with little gems and charms. I also love the black, gold and pearl combination.
