DIY Summer Hat with sequins and pom-poms

Summer is here and that means it’s time to get that pretty sun hat out into our lives – right?

My Instagram and Pinterest have been buzzing with these super glam slogan sun hats that I could not help drooling over. I had been feeling really “crafty” (wink-wink ;-)) lately, so to satisfy that itch I decided to make my own Slogan Hat without spending the $$!

My Top 5 picks of Nude Shades

Finding that perfect nude shade for the lips is a task in itself, isn’t it?

Pheww! So a decent amount of research and a million swatches at the counters later, I have finally compiled 5 ‘my lips but better’ shades which goes amazingly with my medium Indian skin tone and would probably go with any skin colour too.

Missoma Jewellery

Missoma’s fine jewellery had been on my wish list for sometime now. Upon being asked by dear husband, if I wanted anything particular for my birthday, I started dropping numerous subtle and not so subtle hints. None of it worked and I finally had to show him on Missoma’s website the exact necklace that I wanted! A few clicks and a few days later, I am now happy with my gorgeous jewellery gift at the cost of a surprise one!

Missoma, a UK based mother-daughters team, is making a huge wave nowadays with its edgy yet feminine contemporary designs. They are subtle and classy enough to wear at work and also fun and stunning to be worn for the weekends and evening dates.

The jewellery pieces are exquisite; they are made of 18ct gold vermeil or sterling silver with real semi-precious gemstones and zircon setting. Perfect for layering or stacking if one feels to dress up or dress down.

I got the Gold Mini Fang Necklace which is from the Lucy Williams X Missoma collection. It is simple yet slightly quirky (thanks to the mini fangs!) and feels like a dream when wearing it. So light and dainty – goes amazingly well with all kinds of outfits; so well that I haven’t really worn any other jewellery after I received the necklace.

Each item can be hand-engraved with initials or special message if desired – that’s so useful for gifts.

The website is easy to use and delivery was smooth too – just 5 days for international shipping for a nominal charge.

Wish list: Gold Pave Double Arrow Stud Earrings, Double Arrow Ring, Turquoise Bolt ring…. Basically everything!
