I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

Thank you for all the Turkey recommendations for the last post – I was intrigued by the restaurant on water bit, that actually comes quite close to fish coming to sacrifice itself in a puddle of lemonjuice! :D Still quite worried that I haven’t found a bathing suit yet. I’m going through the swimwear racks in all the shops but all I can find is bikinis that look like 3 pieces of tree-leaves strung together, or those that accommodate a balloon party if you know what I mean. I wish I could pick and order from ASOS’ vast collection, but we can all expect that to arrive after I get back from Turkey. I guess the only choice now, is to knit a swimsuit since we all know that DIY is the answer to all wardrobe dilemmas. Let’s see what kind of yarn I brought home…

Mohair… hm.

How about this, bathing suit from the year 1858. VINTAGE!

I think we managed alright with the exhibition. My camera just magically ran out of battery before I could take any pictures of my own work, hotdang. Well, not that I would put my work up here. The exhibition is up in Free Range till the 1st of June in F Block T2 of the Truman Brewery on Brick Lane E1 for those with very little to do this weekend and happen to be around.

About the outfit photo, I do realise that the Zara cropped-top colours are dramatically different here and in the previous post. It’s actually closer to the colour on this post – I think I cranked down the saturation too much on the previous… Oh yes and the hair, I didn’t realise my bun fell apart until I pulled it out of the oven… No, I didn’t realise my bun fell apart until I looked at the pictures at home, it’s my wrestle-on-sofa-with-sleep hair, for those wondering if it has a life of its own and a name.

Sorry for the lack of posts. Would you pat me if I told you what happened last night? Nothing serious, just a big fat FAIL. I had work piled up in the to-do list – combination of schoolwork, work, emails to answer, etc… but I was so tired that I went up to sit on the bed. (jeez. not sure why) Then I jolt up and it’s bright out, I’m in the covers and all but I’m still wearing my glasses and makeup.

I don’t know how one manages to sleep in a bed with glasses on. For 10 hours.


What you’ll need
Victim jeans, Narrow cutting board or cardboard piece, knife, Vacuum Cleaner

Slide the cutting board into the leg – this is to avoid the back side being slashed.

It’s best if you wore the jeans to see where to start slashing. I started just above the knee. Start slashing the jeans horizontally – Do them in sections instead of the whole width of the jean for more destroyed effect.

Slash first, then scrape off the denim to reveal the threads.

Pull out the denim fluff and discard. This will cause considerate amount of dust, so have a vacuum cleaner ready.

Since the dawn of the skinnyjeans era, Boot cut jeans have been neglected and pushed into the back of the wardrobe doubling as nests for Narnia refugees. What, I found a family of badgers in my stash, and a small talking-ant colony in the back pocket, go check yours. Anyway, I thought this could be a good DIY to bring them back into wear. I think it’d look good for the whole length of the jeans if you’re daring enough.

A few tips:

  • For choice of denim, a semi-thick, spring jeans would work the best. Avoid thin summer jeans or thick winter jeans.
  • I’m serious about the dust – apart from the denim fluff, there will be actual dust – so if you’re allergic, better see if you could use a dustmask or a handkerchief.
  • For maximum effect, destroy the whole width of the jeans.
  • Washing tips: Turn jeans inside out, put into a pillow case and wash in a delicate cycle. Washing will make the jeans fray more, so it could be an idea to slash less and then shove it into the washing machine for the fraying effect. Can’t guarantee similar result though.

It seems I landed in Poland just to bounce back out of the country. I basically repacked my huge London luggage into a luggage.zip file as my mother hovered above me telling me to take extra socks and a hat and a scarf and another sweater and blablabla, all the things that you end up leaving in hotel drawers. In such case, pack however you want and when you get to the hotel you’ll find 5 extra socks, a hat, a scarf, a sweater and a blblabla mysteriously stuffed in her own luggage. She’ll say Oh dear, just in case. I’m a bad child.

So I’m not in Warsaw anymore obviously. Any guesses where I am?
