Super Easy Chalkboard DIY

IMG_0598-3IMG_0496-2IMG_0506-2IMG_0509-2
What you’ll need: A pretty frame, thin board such as particle board to use as your chalkboard, primer, chalkboard paint, saw, and a roller to paint the board
1. Make a template of the board. If your frame already comes with a board, just use that and sand it so the surface is smooth
2. Saw the board. If you have a wonderful boyfriend like me, ask him to do it for you. (double plus if he cleans the saw dust too!)
3. Apply a coat of primer onto the board and when that dries, paint the board with chalkboard paint
4. Wait at least 3 full days before you start writing!
Warning: Don’t start painting it on your skin wondering if you can be a human chalkboard.

IN A YOGA STATE OF MIND

The other day I found this post from Free People’s blog and figured that its right up my alley.There aren’t any better pictures to express how you feel when practicing yoga. I have been practicing yoga now for a year and I have to say that I really feel a change in my mind and body. It has really helped me stay centered and mostly to feel balanced not only physically but also spiritually. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Saturday DO: breathe and smile.

THE WEEK IN POLKA DOTS

If you know be by know you should know that I obsess over polka dots. For me they are season- less and they have endless possibilities to combine with different outfits.This week I stumbled upon this pics of Alexa Chung and Olivia Wilde. I love how Alexa combined this gorgeous red top with cut out jean shorts and Converse. Olivia picked this 60’s inspired polka dot dress for her premier of Aliens and Cowboys on the UK. She has gotten mixed reviews about the dress but I think it’s very elegant,chic and very different from what she usually would wear. What do you think about this looks?
