DIY Easter Pastel Party

I have to admit I never been crazy about Easter (except for the fact that you get a couple of extra days off from work). Saying that, for this years Easter, I headed back home to Sweden  to spend some quality time with my family and decided to go Easter-Decoration-Nuts. My sister and I decided … Continue reading

In the second workshop for the Blondie&Pixie DIY experiment, Carmen and I decided to play with tulle to create two-different head-pieces. December is one of those months that are crazy-busy and packed with Christmas parties and events. In the midst of doing-everything-that-needs-to-done it can be difficult to find the time (and the energy!) to get … Continue reading

DIY Tulle Skirt

Ever since I saw the below photo several seasons ago, I’ve been obsessed about creating a big-puffy-nude-pink-tulle-skirt. I dissected the tulle-skirt topic here a couple of months ago (love-love-love the white-polkadot-tulle-skirt from Chloe Fall’13) and was planning to schedule this post shortly after. That did not happen (sorry!) as my life over the last two months … Continue reading

Halloween Pumpkin Inspiration

Happy Halloween! For me, the best part about Halloween is to make cute pumpkin decoration and carvings. Halloween wasn’t really celebrated when I grew up in Sweden, so I always had a non-traditional sense for the holiday. I always loved pumpkins though; the shape, the taste and the color!

Yay! I recently got the exciting news that Shoebox-Living has nominated to the Liebster Blog Award by the whimsical Canadian blogger Hallo Scarlett. I “feel” for Hallo Scarlett after reading the sweet story about her little green house. As you probably know by now; I’m a die-hard fan for home make-overs and anyone giving TLC to the old, torn … Continue reading

Blondie & Pixie DIY Experiment: Rhinestone Heels

Life is ironic. Carmen and I meet several years while studying Business at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Between the busy schedule of supply and demand, I found myself daydreaming about beautiful fabrics, dresses and shoes. I asked myself if there was anyone else “out-there” dreaming about a career beyond finance? Several years … Continue reading

Bed Canopy Inspiration

Phew. After one more week of apartment hunting, I’ve still not found that flat. You are probably asking yourself what can be so hard? Well, there are a lot of obvious things to consider like size, budget and location. Then, there are the less obvious considerations like having a green view; perhaps a little balcony … Continue reading

DIY Renovate Old Furniture

One of my favourite hobbies during summer time is to renovate old furniture. Last summer, I renovated an old coffer and this summer, I got my hands on a gorgeous vintage pin chair (check out my flea market post of reviews of the greater Gothenburg area ). Despite being very different kind of furniture, I … Continue reading
