DIY Distressed Jeans + Thriftventure

And you say, thrifting is boring?

This is my second post about me writing how much I love rummaging clothes at a thrift store. 

Few months ago me and my sister went to the nearby thrift shop and it was madness cuz both of us came home with full bag of clothes. I got myself a total of 10 clothes! Cuhrazzyy i know. ๐Ÿ˜‚ One of those tops really caught my eyes but I don’t think I got a suitable pants to pair it with….until I found my old jeans.

I decided to DIY distressed this jeans with some guides from youtube lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

As I’ve mentioned on one of my post in this blog, about how not-so-creative I am, the outcome of the jeans was the proof. ๐Ÿ˜‚ There’s some mistakes on how it should be done from the way I cut, loosen the thread and so on. Gotta learn that techniques better baby! Well, it’s my first time doing this and I guess it’s not that bad. No?

I love this top! 

Thanks to my cool husband for being my personal photographer haha ๐Ÿ˜˜

My yesterday’s outfit of the day. Another top found from the thrift shop. I bet I have to pay more than RM40 just for the top if it’s not from a thrift shop. But this babyy, it costs me only RM3! ๐Ÿ™Œ imma happy gal.

It’s not about brand, designers or how expensive your clothes are. It’s about style. Fashion is what you buy. Style is what you do with it. ๐Ÿ˜Ž So don’t call me cheap ๐Ÿ˜… I call it an adventure – thriftventure. ๐Ÿ‘—

My next mission is to find a new shoes/sneakers – brand new or thrift? Probably brand new. Shoes from the thrift are wayyy more expensive. You tell me why. ๐Ÿ˜

That’s all for today. Thanks so much for reading. ๐Ÿ˜˜

DIY Coffee With Honey And VCO Mask/Scrub

Here, I don’t look pretty…yet haha whatever ๐Ÿ’†

I don’t really drink coffee (I absolutely don’t until I got married) but I do love the aroma of coffee and its ability to make our groggy mornings better. Who knows it also good for our skin too. Coffee has a high antioxidant capacity and that the caffeine contents can help to improve circulation.

There’s a lot of coffee scrub products where you can buy out there now. But sometimes I love to challenge myself to make my own coffee scrub. It makes me think I’m a creative person while I’m actually not. ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Ingredients:

  • Coffee grounds
  • Honey
  • Virgin Coconut Oil

Mix it together and apply to a clean face. Let sit for 15-20 minutes. I love to scrub smoothly in a circular motions before rinsing it off with warm water.

Benefits of Coffee for skin:

  1. Reduces Inflamattion 
  2. Antioxidants
  3. Reduces Puffiness
  4. Minimize Dark Circles
  5. Brightens Skin

Honey: A natural antibacterial, so it’s good for acne prevention and treatment, great slowing down aging and moisturize skin.

Virgin Coconut Oil: Also a natural antibacterial, reducing facial wrinkles and a great moisturizer.

    I’m sure there’s more to it. 

    How I wished I don’t have those small freckles. But gotta love it now!

    Not flawless but I can say I’m happy that my skin feels smooth, fresh, revitalize, and no more dead skin cells! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ And of course, I made it with the ingredients found in the kitchen! *save your money kachinggg* ๐Ÿ’ฐ

    Have you tried this before? How do you like it?

    Thank you for reading! Happy blogging! 

    Love, Mich ๐ŸŒธ

    DIY Off Shoulder Top

    This is not a tutorial on how to make your own Off Shoulder Top. It’s just a post of stating how proud I am that finally I made something exciting related to creativity. Cuz I’m not a creative person to tell the truth.

    Few weeks ago while I was back in my hometown, I was cleaning my wardrobe and saw this old top that I used to love it before until it was ruined by red stains on its collar.

    Well not really that ruined though but the red stains just won’t get away. So I decided to turn it into something else instead of throwing it away. I watched a video of DIY Off Shoulder Top on Youtube before and that’s where I got this idea.

    Fortunately, I didn’t whine so much during our sewing & cooking class in secondary school back then, plus mom was a tailor before so I guess I got some skills ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I did some mistakes with the rubber measurement and frankly, it’s not a perfect outcome but I’ll say, can you tell what’s the mistake by looking at the picture?

    As long as I can wear it and head to the beach, why not! ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    That’s all for today! Thanks for reading and have a great moment.

    Love, Mich ๐ŸŒธ
