Men are not nice guys

Don't you worry boys, we love bad guys ;) I sew this message on my T-shirt after hearing a VH1 music mix containing a piece of the song with this title. Actually, what I heard was the whispered lyric "Men are not nice guys." And I thought it was so hot that I sewed it on :)

What messages did you sew on your clothes?

Enjoy yourself,

Have you ever felt that all of your life, you’ve been told to walk that way, talk that way, laugh that way? Like there is only one way to do things so everything could be even. Well, there may be only one way, but make sure it’s your way. Cut out all the stupid rules which keep you small and make a change, like I did. Cut your skirts. Be Uneven.
The red one? Ok, red, the colour of passion, sticks out whenever… Still, it fitted too well into the classic red skirt type. The striped one? Great shape, too long not to look like a housewife in the '50s. As to the orange skirt, I made it from scratch, manually, to complete this whole uneven extravaganza.
Plus, they feel great while dancing. I do a lot of salsa dancing, and although they don't help me keep my balance when spinning, I do feel lighter, like a little girl pretending she's a princess. I added some spinning-skirt photos so you can see what I'm talking about.

Enjoy yourself,
Andreea Hash :)

DIY! Studio Pomyslow- inspired necklace

    Hello everybody! Hope you had a wonderful New Year's Eve, and that you started 2012 with optimism and energy. I still feel like dancing, but between bachata and cha cha cha in front of the mirror, I want to share with you an idea of an easy-to-do necklace. My inspiration was Studio Pomyslow, an amazing Polish accessories brand, whose website you can find below. If you feel like handmaking, here you go.

                                                       My version

How to:

1. Cut a piece of clothing (make sure you won't cry for it afterwards) into several strips. I used 15 strips for my necklace; it depends on how much volume you want it to have. The more pieces you use, the more volume you get.

2. Choose a basis for your necklace. I chose to braid some brown thread, but you can also use a ribbon or a thin chain.

3. Bend the strip in half and place it under the thread/ribbon/chain.
4. Take the strip through the curl, and stretch it until you obtain a knot. 
5.  Follow steps 3 and 4 using all the other strips.

6. Congratulations! You have a brand new necklace.

Tell me about your own results! Looking forward to your opinions.

Wish you a Year on Fire,
Andreea Hash

Volunteer of the year!!

       Happy Thursday everyone! Hope you're having a great December, and even a greater Christmas and New Year's Eve in the days to come. I apologize I've been a lazy girl during the last month, but here is one reason I've been taking a break from posting- volunteer activities.
       This year was the first Romanian edition of the Volunteers' Gala, on December 12th, organized by VOLUM, a federation comprising the organisations which promote volunteering. I was nomineed by Save the Children to the Youth category, and I won! :D Although it crossed my mind for some moments the fact that I could win, it seems incredible to me even now. I would like to thank everybody from Save the Children, so inspiring people, awesome friends and a great team who's always so involved in every project and action! Special congrats to Ioana and Ina, who also won that night to their category!
       I've been volunteering for already three years, and it's been the most amazing thing I could experiment as a teenager. Working with and for kids allowed me to grow so much as a person, and be able to do things I never dared to do before.

       I encourage all of you to volunteer, make a change in your society, and bring people a smile on their face. Cheers to all the volunteers!!!

Freezy Teasy

My best friend knows me so well. She made me aware of the fact that I'm stubborn in an awkard, but cute way- when I disagree with an idea, although someone explains it to me with solid arguments, my mind simply refuses to understand. For instance, winter stopped by lately. And it requires, as every year, appropriate clothes. But I like summer and spring clothes more, so I find it very difficult to wear winter clothes in my blog outfits. Otherwise, I do dress appropriately, don't believe that my mind lets me freeze all the time:))

Anyway, my mom is cool, that she doesn't care when people stare at me while taking pictures 'naked', as she says, during this time of the year. She helped me with this photoshoot, and I'm so grateful to her. She even understands my passion of walking on the streets at 0 degrees or less, which makes her even more awesome.
 The green hat was knitted by me- as you can see, I used it to keep the spirit of winter  :)) The white top has a waist craft that I love, unfortunately you cannot see it it these pictures. What I added, or better said, what I took away, was the current 'shoulderless' part; I simply felt the need of a Hash touch. The skirt has a front zipper, and I hadthe idea of a curly hem which took me so many hours to sew, but I love the result, so it was worth it. As to the purse, you already know it from the Fountain of Proof post.
