    DO IT YOURSELF: FLOWER EMBROIDERY SWEATER

     

    Hello Guys! Today I wanted to show you, or give you some inspiration and ideas on how to make your own flower embroidery sweater. This sweater is a "copy" or inspired by the ORO Los Angeles sweater. My boyfriend showed it to me some weeks ago, and since it was quite expensive (225$) I decided to make it myself!

    First of all you need a hoodie or other sweater. You can find a lot of plain sweaters on eBay.com.

    I then searched for some flower embroidery on etsy, eBay and AliExpress. You can find a lot of different flowers, colors and shapes - and it's really cheap!

    I used the glue I usually use to put stones on my dresses. It's called Gem-Tac. I think you can find the glue on danceshopper.com, or at least similar. They deliver very fast! The next step is to line up and figure where to but your embroidery. As I said earlier, Sebb and I took some inspiration from the ORO design. One on each arm (maybe I'll put one on the hoodie as well). The next step is to actually glue the whole embroidery on to your sweater. 

    After the glue has dried, I took the sewing machine and sew the embroidery on. I would personally suggest you to do it, because when you're going to wash your sweater, it might "fall off", at least in the edges. The glue doesn't allow you to wash it with too high temperature - so be CAREFUL! If you sew it soon as well, you're probably good to go. Just keep in mind that the glue might loosen or get wet if you wash with too high temperature, but will probably dry again.

    AND THAT'S IT! You're good to go :)

    I do make these sweater for 650 NOK, so if you're interested contact me on helene.spilling@gmail.com :)

    Happy DIY! ♥ #diy

    I've had a lovely day together with Sebastian and my friends today. Seb and I went outside in the sun to take some photos as well, and I think they turned out great. I feel like each time we take photos together, we get better and better. We also tried to take some video clips of a look. If it turns out OK, I'll show you in a bit!

    Have a great night! ♥

  • THE EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP IN OLOMOUC

     

    I'm back from Olomouc! We had a great experience in Olomouc. The European Championship was really exiting and we ended up on 31st place. We had to be 24th, or better, to get into the quarterfinal, so we still have some places to go.

    The competition it self was very well organized and had a good atmosphere! Especially during the evening when the semifinal and final was held. We went to the airport at 1.30am and traveled al night. I was super tired! The best part was to do a Latin Mix/Zumba class in the afternoon - hahah! Litterly felt like a ZOMBIE!

    Our next competition will be the Norwegian Championship - 10th of June - in Sandbekkhallen! Maybe I'll see you there? :))

    Soo... I had a great celebration yesterday and I hope everybody else had too! - but in my case it didn't last for that long. I had to wake up 4 am this morning, get dressed and finish packing my bags before Jonas and I went to Czech Republic. Our first flight went to Frankfurt, then to Prague. I was super tired. I've been sleeping overtime I had the possibility to, at the plane, the bus, the train and then a hour at our hotel room. 

    We have been some hours walking around in the city, even though everything was closed. It's a beautiful city, unfortunately we don't have any time to have a closer look at it. 

    Our first round in the European Championships Standard is tomorrow at 3pm, so we'll start to get ready for bed now.

    I'll try to keep you updated tomorrow ♥

    It's been a while - haha. Sorry for that. Somehow time flies away. I haven't really shared any photos from Edinburgh yet, but they will be posted here eventually. This photos were taken the first morning when Seb and I went to Gregs for breakfast. They've got a really good sandwich/baguette that I'm totally craving for all the time now. It's a sandwich with butter, ham and cheddar cheese, but cheese was INSANE good! I've just been at the supermarket, and I bought two different types of cheddar cheese and ham :)))

    I will soon go to practice a bit - our last practice before we go to the European Championship on Tuesday. The EC will be at Friday. But before I go to practice, followed by a "zumba"-class at Sprek, I'll have to buy myself a new pair of "bunad" shoes. Talk soon ♥

    FRIDAY NIGHT - and I still haven't been able to write a new blog post.. I've had a lot on my schedule the last few days, and every time I start to edit photos - I somehow fall asleep. I think I just have to relax a bit, get my body and mind fresh again before I start working. I've got quite a lot on my schedule tomorrow as well. I'll be teaching a bit, then practicing and fixing some nails for my friend. There's only a few days left before Norway's National day. 17th of May we'll be celebrating and eating a lot of good food - not to mention wear our "bunad"/national costume! I'm really looking forward to it! :)

    HOSBJERG AND UNDORN PRE-SPRING/WINTER 2017 COLLECTION 

    TWINSISTERS AGENCY 


     

    I gr hadde Twinsisters Agency visning av Hosbjerg og Undorn Pre-spring/Winter 2017 kolleksjonen. Begge kolleksjonene hadde utrolig mye fint! Undorn hadde utrolig mye flott til selskap og bryllup, s hvis det er noen kommende sommerbryllup anbefaler jeg ta en titt p undorn.com

    Hosbjerg hadde litt forskjellig, bde til fest og hverdag. Jeg ble helt forelsket i den gule buksen og genseren med kinesiske tegn som dere kan se p det ene bildet ovenfor. Og ikke minst den grnne krokodilleskinnjakken. Jeg skal helt klart ta en titt p nettsidene deres! Du kan finne mer her.

    Vi snakkes senere! ♥

    AND I'm back on track! Took these photos together with Henriette a while ago. We just wanted to try some different looks and places near my house. I got the "I'm on my way to a party" kind of feeling when I saw some of these photos. It was day time when we took these pictures, but because of the blitz we got a really cool and different finish to the photos.

    I'm going to bed really soon. I have to wake up early tomorrow to get ready for a VIP showroom event in Oslo. I'm bringing my personal photographer with me - Sebastian - haha! Looking forward to it :) Talk later ♥
