10 Days. 10 Girls : Launches Tomorrow

Although it took me 6 months to get to this post, I’ve kept my word. The idea launches tomorrow with dresses I’ve picked out from this Pinterest page.

Sorry about the hold back. It was due to immense work load and attention required from my Second year final design project. That being said, let the show begin!

Here’s my Card…….. Call Me Maybe?

When you are a college student in the second year, it’s that time of the course where they try to professionalize you. (or atleast teach us to present ourselves in a less embarassing manner)

It’s time to look one year into the future and conduct fake interviews and draw up fake portfolios (with credits you dang well wish you owned. Degree from Harvard? Don’t mind if I do!)

Ofcourse it’s all fun and games to run around conducting interviews on your friends and then mercilessly reject them (oh the superficial power of a superficial company) but when the thought of this being your life for a good while in the future creeps into the back of your mind, the whole thing becomes a bleak affair. (I hope I have enough perseverance to stick up through it just for the sake of that fancy apartment I plan to own one day)

Introduction aside, it was the assignment of the day to create your own business card. The ground rules? Phrasing my lecturer;

When you are old like me and go to hang out at the fancy bar, you come home with a pocket stuffed with forced business cards. Hell I won’t even remember their  faces.  I’ll wake up next morning with a slight hangover. Bleary eyed, I would go through the contents of my pockets to throw away anything  I don’t want and that’s where I would pick up that stack of business cards. Taking only one glance to judge the business cards I would flip them one by one in to the trash can. And yours should be the one that should catch my attention, make me stop flipping, and go  ‘hmm interesting, I wonder what this is all about’ and then give you a call.That’s the one your card should be, not the one being flipped into the bin.

Good stuff. All the more pressure.

There you have it. My final design for the business card. I quite like it actually.

Update and note: Guess who got a distinction? uh-huh, yep.  oh and the site is a made up site. It’s merely the company name my friend and I came up with during a group assignment. We quite like the sound of it. So let me know whether PopLobby is a good name to start with?  Comment below. x

Tattoed your Nails Recently? DIY

Nail art has been growing alot lately. It has always been a trend. A way to express femininity. Now it a way to express chatacter and personality and most important your creativity. (and slightly the amount of free time you got on your hands)

With so many options to decorate your nails with, here’s one more to add to your options list.

What you’ll Need:

Temporary Adhesive Tattoo Paper (You know, the kind that gets transferred to your skin when you wet them)

Google results on Tattoo Stickers. You can get them anywhere!

A White Nail Polish

A Clear Top Coat

An Ice Cube (not the rapper mind you)

Apply a two coats of White (Or any background color you prefer and suits the design you’ve chosen) to your nail. While that dries choose the design you want tattoed on your nails.

you can use this kind. or…..

this type! psyche. 😛 use the former I say!

I had a cute chain of small flowers saved for this tutorial but of course, I have misplaced it ten minutes before I needed it.

So I chose these two instead.

Place the sticker in the direction you want over your nails and dab it with water. Ice cold water works faster and better. an ice cube does all that and also gives control of pressing the sticker down around the edges of your nail.

Once you are sure the tattoo has transferred, gently peel the paper off. Clean off the residue with a cotton swab.

Finally, seall off your tattoo with a clear top coat.

And you are good to go!

And if all else fails, turn to the stickers!  (;

Good Luck!
