DIY: Accessories Board / Organizer

I'm hoping you girls like DIY stuff cause I personally LOVE IT and want to do more DIY projects!
So if you guys hate it...... ummm........ sucks for me hahaha!

But anyway, I think DIY is awesome cause you get to save money,
feel a sense of accomplishment when you make something totally unique by yourself,
you get more out of what you already have,
and it's way more fun than just whipping out your credit cards to buy the same thing!

For today, I'm going to be doing an accessories board/organizer cause I have quite a number of long necklaces that ALWAYS get tangled up with each other and it's super frustrating, especially when I'm in a hurry!

My inspiration was from going to flea markets where people hang their accessories they'd like to sell on a cork board, and also from youtube where I saw some girls decorating their cork board so it's not so boringly brown :p

I got this cork board cause my elder sis dumped it to me.
Yes, dumped~
My mum used to joke that I'm a karang guni (rag and bone man) cause I always take all my sis' unwanted stuff hahah
But anyway, she got it from IKEA impulsively and ended up not knowing what to do with it and she didn't want to throw it away so....
guess who got a free cork board!!! :D

You can always get these boards outside, they're quite cheap,
and I saw DAISO selling some smaller sized ones ($2 obviously hehe) so if you'd like to get one you might want to check them out :)

As you can see, my cork board has some weird marks on it cause I dirtied it hahah so I'm going to cover it up with nice fabric LOL!

Wrapping paper from DAISO
Black Lace fabric from DAISO

I'm using a designed wrapping paper cause I couldn't find any plain white mahjong paper and I was too lazy to get it from elsewhere, so I bought the patterned one and flipped it backwards instead :)

First of all, measure out the base (white paper), or any other color combination you'd like, and then cut it to fit your board.

Leave the base aside and measure the fabric this time around.
Actually the board would have looked good even with just the lace cloth on it, but I like the black and white combination so it's really up to you :)

You can even use just a plain colored cloth, some polkadot cloth, floral cloth etc for this!

I'm using pushpins to hold the fabric in place white I was cutting it.
Again, the pushpins were from my sister hahahaha she got it from NUS and didn't want it so she gave it to me :X
Karang guni indeed, LOL!

Once you have both the correct side of paper/fabrics, line the laced one over the white one and pin it down on the cork board.
Use pushpins to mark out how far you'd like your necklaces to hang from each other.
I didn't measure it exactly for mine, it was like a rough gauge :)

Mine isn't cut perfectly but whatever hahah that's the beauty of DIY (excuses.....hahaha)! :p

Tadah! The end product!
Now to get all excited to hang out all your necklaces onto your new accessories board / organizer!

You can actually bling up the border of the board,
paint it, paste studs on it, paste bows or ribbons or whatever you want onto it!
I'm just demonstrating a real easy and quick example but if you'd like something more edgy or complicated, why not experiment with it!! :)

Hope this post was helpful!
And please do let me know if you like this tutorial or you're going to try this out!! :)
I'd love you see your own pimped up accessories organizers!

And check out the Kenzy Turtleneck from Jipaban!
I love the whole zigzag design, super unique from all the usual prints we always see ;)
Plus black and white color combi... love it! :D

thanks for reading!
Love you all! :D

Cause he's too perfect for me to be true.
I've said this a million times, but he's not just my boyfriend, he's my best friend as well :')
Happy 20 months and many more years to come sweetheart!!!!

It's as if someone customised his character to suit mine perfectly and mine to suit his.... it's crazy!

No idea what my set is called, I just pointed to the picture cause it looked really worth it with tons of stuff in a set lol!

Cineleisure's Next Online Sensation: Our Posters!

Planned to go to Cineleisure with Peishi ALONE to check out our posters inside the lifts the other day just for awhile.....

Who would have thought we would meet so many other people in the end! LOL
We were totally underdressed and didn't have nice make up on :(
Regret max cause a lot of our pictures turned out...... meh D;

Anyway here's our poster in the lifts!!! :)

Picture credit to Peishi!

We were so fkg crazy we took the lift up and down just trying to take pictures of the poster when there was no one in the lift, LOL!
And we were holding the lift door for people entering and exiting the lift cause we wanted to wait for all of them to get out of the lift HAHAHA :X
But....... the lift was stuffy after awhile and we had to escape x.x

And then Noah tweeted that he was heading towards town, and I whatsapped him.
Here's roughly how our conversation went:

Me: Eh bruh where are you
Noah: Going town
Me: I'm at Cine with Peishi to check out our posters
Noah: I on my way
Me: Who you meeting
Noah: You all lah
Me: Really meh?!

LOL I asked Peishi and both of us didn't confirm anything with him and suddenly we were suppose to meet Noah :X

And then while walking around Naomi called Peishi and asked if we wanted to have dinner together and then we were like yay then the bunnies can finally meet!!

But who knew that Noah came along with his friends too!

HAHAH then Peishi and I were like T~T
Cause we looked super meh that day cause all we wanted was to look at our posters and go home LOL omg

Here's a horrible picture of the bunnies and I couldn't save it with photoshop so I blurred out the entire picture hahah
But still love :D

And then we went to have dinner at the Kopitiam opposite Cine where they serve that super yummy stingray!

Noah, Janson and Benjamin

Peishi and Naonao!
I love pretty sparkly-eyed people *.*
Both of them have!!!



And onion omelette........
I hate to eat anything related to onions!
It's as gross as garlic, hei bi (dried shrimp) and ikan bilis :X

And then we went to Scape to kpo cause there were people dancing there hahah

The tallest boy in blue checkered shirt is Ridhwan!

Ridhwan is the luckiest boy of the day cause he got to take a chio picture with naonao!!! :P

Peishi and Janson!
And Janson is a gentleman cause HE SENT PEISHI HOME!
It was our first time meeting him!
IKR, wtf so nice please!
Cause Peishi stays really far and she's a little girl and I always get worried when she goes home alone especially when it's late :(
So I was like popping champagnes in my head when Janson sent Peishi home!
Ahem hinthint bruh, please learn from Janson lol!!!

All these thumbs up pictures crack me up so bad!
We were actually imitating Steven Lim's pose,
plus his head kept nodding when he was taking pictures with his fans(?) in a particular video he posted up hahahah

Stupid Janson said he'd take a picture for us and then when he counted till 3, he turned the camera towards himself and camwhored
