Outfit post: An Oily Galaxy

I got my new scrunchy arm top in the post a couple days back, I love it more than I expected I would! It looks wet like oil and is the perfect shape and length to go with my favourite leggings too!
Definitely ticks all my boxes

-crotch covered for wear with leggings
-fitted up top with cool arm scrunchiness 
 -loose enough to hide any bumps caused by tight pants 
-sleek wetlook 

The top arrived just in time too as I just started wearing my galaxies again. I'm soo happy I get to wear my favourite leggings once again. It really lifts the spirits when you're wearing clothing you're happy and confident in. I feel ready to tackle uni this new semester!

DIY: Metal collar tips

I first saw the removable metal collar tips on the blog LOVE AESTHETICS

This pair was from ASOS and is available for purchase here.
However the review for the product was not great, apparently the metal was prone to rust. But it looked like a fun DIY and thought I would give it a try. 

I bought metal frame corners from Articus Studio and brooch backs from Empire Beads. I also used my trusty contact adhesive and a pair of scissors.
I carefully cut off the folds of excess metal at the back of the frame corners. Use very sturdy scissors as mine broke during this DIY. Better yet, I recommend you use metal cutting pliers if available.

Just apply glue to both the back of the triangle and the back of the brooch pin, wait for 10 minutes, then STICK!
I recommend sticking the pin higher up to the top edge of the triangle as I found it tilts forward a little when it's stuck lower.
This is what it looks like on a shirt...

...And this is what it looks like on me! Not bad huh?

It's a great way to jazz up a plain shirt, and because it's removable, you can change between shirts without causing any permanent damage to your clothing.
It's good because its a right angle, so you can use it on anything with a square corner. For example: pocket corners, scarf edges, purse corners etc... Experiment and have FUN!!
