At the pool: DIY Cover up

calvin klein swimsuit ray ban sunglassesEN   I got a dress from a friend and didn’t have the chance to wear it. And then I thought it’s the perfect item to do a small DIY project. What I did, I cut the fabric on the inside and I left only the outside bit which is very see through. But I made this in order to transform the dress into a cover up for my swimsuit. In the end it turned out to be extremely practical: long to cover my legs from the sun, very flowy so I never felt too warm, and it got dry in seconds. I am really happy with the result. On the market, something like this will cost me about 30 Pounds, and it wouldn’t be something original either.


RO   Am primit o rochie de la o prietena pentru ca ei nu mai ii era buna. Nu am apucat sa o port deloc pana cand am hotarat ca mai bine fac din ea un proiect. I-am taiat captuseala si am ramas cu o rochie lunga si vaporoasa, transparenta. Nu stiu cum e acasa, insa in Anglia rochitele semitransparente in stil cover up sunt foarte in voga. Si din cauza asta sunt si foarte scumpe. Sau ma rog, prea scumpe sa le umpli cu nisip si sa le uzi cu apa de mare, sa le tii la soare toata ziua… nu se merita investitia. Echivalentul a ce port eu ar costa intr-un magazin peste 150 RON. Eu sunt foarte multumita de rezultat si m-am gandit ca poate va dau si voua niste idei – poate aveti ceva rochii lungi (sau fuste) mai vechi care stau in dulap nepurtate. swimming pool swimming pool outfit cover up diy cover up poolcalvin klein swimsuit pool outfit calvin klein swimsuit ray ban sunglasses

DIY – The White Bottles

DIY white bottles I’ve had an idea recently to paint some bottles in white, to use them as candles holders. It all started when we got a white bottle of Islena – The Beer of Ibiza, when we were on Holiday. I decided to bring it home with me and make more bottles myself for decorating the new place. I’ve finally found some time and determination to do the bottles. The thing that put me off was the cleaning of those nasty labels from the bottles. But I rapidly found a solution: hot water and a hard sponge like this one here. It was quite easy to clean them like this, but it’s not the best treatment for your hands. However, it should last 5 mins for 4 bottles, so it’s not that bad. I know it’s not the most original idea..after checking online I found a lot of similar projects. Anyhow, this is my version and I hope you’ll enjoy it!DIY inspiration

De ceva vreme tot am in minte sa vopsesc niste sticle in alb, pentru a le folosi ca suport la lumanari. Mi-a venit ideea cand eram in Ibiza si savuram o bere locala (Islena) intr-o sticla alba. Mi-a placut mult si-am adus-o acasa, asa ca am hotarat sa fac mai multe, sa arate totul mai frumos. M-am apucat greu de proiect pentru ca mi-era groaza sa spal sticlele de tichete – stiti si voi ce greu se duc! Dar repede am gasit o solutie super rapida: apa calda si un burete de spalat vase, mai abraziv, ca cel de-aici. Mi-a luat cam 5 minute sa spal 4 sticle. A fost rapid, insa putin neplacut pentru maini. Inainte de-a ma apuca, azi, m-am uitat putin pe net si-am gasit o gramada de idei similare. Stiu ca nu e cel mai original proiect, insa va ofer versiunea mea, poate va inspir!DIY white bottlesDIY white bottle– Use the magazine/newspaper to cover the surrounding area so you can protect it

– You can find the paint spray in big stores with housing and gardening products

– Folositi revista/ziarul pentru a proteja de vopsea zona din jur

– Eu am luat spray-ul dintr-un magazin gen Dedeman sau Praktiker.
DIY white bottlesYou can see that the paint wasn’t spread even. Maybe also because of my zero experience with this. However, I think it looks quite nice like this! What do you think?

Se vede putin cum vopseaua nu s-a intins uniform. Asta si din cauza experientei mele egale cu zero.. Dar nu conteaza, mie mi se pare c-a iesit destul de bine! Ce credeti?DIY white bottlesHere you have another easy idea, totally different from mine:
