DIY: 15mins Easy Peasy Wrap Skirt


6 years ago when hubby-to-be and I decided to take that bold leap, I went hunting for the right material to make a nice outfit for our *introduction program and soon made me a nice skirt and blouse for the 'do'.

Fast forwarded to 2013, my dress size understandably changed from 6 (yes I was a sz 6) to 10 and there was no other option than to give out my much loved outfit to someone who is slimmer. Only hitch being that the scarf went into hiding at the time I gave it away only to resurface last week from its hiding place deep within the closet.

C is for...Confidence, Teach Them





                
The idea for this post came as a result of recent interactions with my boy.
Got me wondering how one goes about teaching kids self-confidence, kids as young as 4yr olds for that matter. Any chance of them understanding? 
How do you teach a 4yr old to develop thick skin that would prevent the never-ending environmental drama, criticisms and what-nots  to seep in?
These environmental drama starts so early these days, much earlier and sometimes seemingly harmless banter may get on the wrong side of the young receiver.
Will tell you a short story. No 2 short stories.

DIY: Envelope Clutch

This is a quick explanation about how I made my envelope clutch.

I don't know all the fancy sewing terms but I will do my best to present it as clear as possible so you can make some sense of this. It's really super easy to make, hope you find it so.

This purse can be made using fabric but I used 'soft' leather to make it. If using fabric, you may have to add fusible interfacing in addition to the interior lining to give it weight otherwise the end result would be flimsy.

Tribute to Daddy

Father's day is here again.
Many children who are fortunate to still have fathers in their lives would celebrate the occasion with their dads while some would not be so privileged due to circumstances.

Two things At The Same Time?





I had a good laugh last night, you know the kind of laughter that emanates from the deepest part of the belly.  Wasn't even reading or watching any comic show,  here's why:

Amidst my kitchen busyness trying to get dinner ready,  I overheard the Hubby and D2 in a funny exchange of sorts.

B is for Beauty




Was reading the Daily Mail a couple of months back when I came across this headline about women and their beauty.
 
According to a 'recent survey' published in the Daily Mail sometimes in February, men are most confident in bed between ages of 50 and 69 while women experience their sexual confidence between age 18 and 29 

It was concluded that women’s beauty and sexual confidence peak at 29, meaning that a woman literally starts the downward plunge where beauty is concerned on reaching that milestone.

Something I Made... and Loved


As much as I love sewing and crafting, I decided a while back not to waste my time making what I do not really need or what nobody around me needs because you see,  time is very precious and a tiny fraction lost or wasted could not be regained.  Ever.
