#6 ROOMSPIRATION: COSY LIGHTS + VIDEO (EASY)

Hey there!
Long time no roomspiration post. I'm so excited to show this super easy and cheap DIY with you guys. It's a tree-lightening-decoration and it gives a really cosy and romantic atmosphere to your room or just any other place. I really don't know how to call this thing, but whatever. I always wanted to buy something like this, but everytime I saw one I never liked the design of it, so I came up with this idea. I also filmed the tutorial, so you can choose to watch it or just read the tutorial as usual. Enjoy!

#10, PERSONAL STUFF // OOTD: ILLUMINATION

Hey gaissss,
So the weather has been changing a lot lately. Yesterday was a really dark day and the day before was even darker. It rains quite a lot here in the Netherlands, so that kinda sucks. But today the sun came up and it's really hot here again. It's around 30 degrees and I'm dying. However, I thought it was a great idea to make some ootd photo's!

#4 ROOMSPIRATION: A COSY ATMOSPHERE

Hi there!
I finally received my lighting shit from eBay. I waited almost 1 month for it and now I got it. I'm really happy with these lights, because my room looks complete now! It gives my room a really cosy and warm atmosphere and I just love it. It only cost me 4 dollars + free shipping. If you want to buy it too then go to eBay and just type in 'Christmas lights' and there you go. And don't mind the word 'Christmas', it doesn't matter if it's Christmas or not, right?

#16 DIY, BASEBALL TEE (2NE1 VERSION)

Hi there!
I have another DIY tutorial for you guys! Today I will show you how I made this baseball tee. I didn't want to make a basic baseball tee, so I made another version of it. This is a 2NE1 baseball tee with a members' name on the front and the band name on the back. The number is the birth date of the member, but then only the last two numbers (for example if she's born in 1984, the number on the tee is 84).
Of course you don't have to use the 2NE1 concept. You can do it for any other band or singer (like EXO, Big Bang, SHINee, SNSD etc.) I'm just going to show you the basic technique of making a baseball tee.

#5, PERSONAL STUFF // TOP 5 FAVORITE YOUTUBERS

Hello there!
I've been seeing these ''Favorite Youtubers''-posts all over blogger so I thought, why not do it too? I love love Youtube. I literally spend the whole day watching videos on Youtube! So I thought that I'd share my top 5 favorite youtubers with you! Let's get into it!

#1 My top favorite Youtuber at the moment is
CutiePieMarzia!

Her name is Marzia and she's from Italy. She is sooooo beautiful and she has a great sense of fashion! She makes videos about fashion and just random cute stuff. She also has a great personality. She is so cute and adorable! I've been following her for quite a while now and I just love her so much!! Go visit her channel if you haven't before! :D


#2 Clothesencounters
You'll probably already know her if you're familiar with the fashion part on Youtube. Her name is Jenn and she makes fashion videos! I've been following clothesencounters for a few years now and the videos are still inspiring me. Unfortunately Sarah and Jenn stopped making videos together. They started this channel a few years ago together, but since they both had to move somewhere else, they weren't able to make video's together anymore :( Jenn is doing it on her own now and she does a really great job! I still miss Sarah though :) 


Claire Marshall makes vlogs, beauty and fashion videos and just other nice vids. I love her style and her personality. She's really cool! I discovered her channel a few weeks ago and I truly love her videos! Go check them out ;)


 So this channel is not about fashion or anything like that. Ka Lia Yang makes music and she is really talented. She makes originals and covers and I just love it. Her voice is so pretty and she's just gorgeous. You should definitely check her channel out, because she deserves more views!


#5 The Platform
So, the only reason why I'm subscribed to The Platform is because of Amy Pham. I love Amy's style and she is just a big inspiration for me. If you don't know what The Platform is, it's basically a channel of a group of people where they put up different sorts of videos on it. Just go to their channel and then you'll understand it :)

So that were my top 5 favorite youtubers. It was hard to choose, because I've got more than 200 favorite youtubers. I will post that maybe another time. We'll see :)
Have a great day,

Xoxo Elli <3

How are you doing guysss? I'm enjoying the sun here. The weather has been so beautiful these last days. I was brainstorming for some new DIY projects, but I am kinda out of ideas..

I posted two looks on it already. I am going to post this look there too tonight! And omygod, I uploaded my last ootd on chictopia yesterday night and when I woke up I saw that my look had already 70 votes! I feel so blessed right now, haha.

#13 DIY, HOW TO MAKE TIE DYE T-SHIRT

Hey guys!

New DIY yeah! I finally finished school, so that means that I will post more this month (hopefully)! Today I will show you how I made this tie dye tee. In this tutorial I used two different brand dyes. Last year I bought a pistache fabric dye in Germany and this was the first time using it. It wasn't that good as I expected, so I recommend using Dylon dye. First I used half of the bag, but the colour didn't get pigmented. Right after I threw the whole bag in the bottle, but the colour still didn't get really pigmented. Beside that, the small Dylon container was really pigmented! Whatevs.

And by the way, I made three tie dye shirts in total. The first one wasn't that pretty so I made another one (the blue one). These pictures were made when I made the first one, just to let you know :)
Enjoy reading <3
