Hello everyone!

I have finally gotten around to making my DIY that I have been planning! Okay, I know it's not the best, but hey at least I tried :) I've spent all afternoon + night filming and editing this so I hope you enjoy.
If anyone has any questions about anything from the video (or if anyone has any suggestions on what other videos to make :D) then please comment or contact me through here or at shannisun@hotmail.com!

And if anyone by any chance at all does decide to make this please send me a picture, I'd really like to know how it went :)

Anyway, I hope everyone is getting into the Christmas spirit because Santa is coming next week!

Keep smiling and stay well x
Ciao for now,

.: top, temt | booties, rubi | shorts, supre (hand-me-down) | bag, cotton on :.

This is what I wear when I have no ideas to mix n' match my other wardrobe pieces; I like it because it's chic but also satisfying if I'm totally blank! I adore the mesh cutout surrounding the collar of my top, it's just such an out-of-the-box idea but it just works so well! 

I am currently changing my blog layout and I know it looks a bit all over the place right now but Blogger is being a real pain in the arse by not displaying changes I've made on the Template Designer! I searched it up and apparently this problem happens to everyone and it's just a fault, I really hope they fix it soon or else my perfectionist self will kick in and cringe everytime I go on my blog.

Anyway, I am saving up for an iPhone (and I'm almost there!) so when I get it I will hope to post a vlog about the start of my holidays! Even if no one watches it. But whatever. 

I hope everyone is well and smiling all day long!

Hey guys! As we all know, Christmas is so close! I have found a couple of wrapping related DIYs you might like to have a look at (and possibly make!) so you can get creative for the presents you send out this year!

1. How to wrap using cloth

This is such a great way to give presents! As soon as I saw this post on Facebook, I immediately thought I should share it with you guys. It's a good way to dig out your old bandanas and give that vintage touch to your presents!

2. How to sew a gift bag

This is a nice tutorial if you see some really nice festive fabric that you are dying to use for something christmas-y! Click here to go to the tutorial or the image above :)

3. 40 Free Christmas Printables

Here are some really artsy printables that are great for Christmas parties and gift tags! Click here for the link or on the image above.

Anyway, that's all I have! I hope everyone is well and I'll post soon when I have the time to make an outfit post!

.: top, portmans (hand-me-down) | skirt, romwe | sunnies, dotti :.

Oh wow, this is such a rare occasion where I don't post for 1 month! School has been so hectic at the moment with assignments all clashing; but I mean it's crazy because it's almost the end of our school year and our reports are written but our teachers are just annoying!
I have also spent this time away from my blog reading City of Glass (by Cassandra Clare) AGAIN and Paper Towns (by John Green) while getting lost in my own imagination. So, that is the reason for my absence though holidays are just right around the corner and there are lots of posts lined up!

Anyway, this was just a quick shoot I did with my sister about 15 minutes ago (involving her getting up an hour earlier) so it lasted about 5 minutes with my sister asking 'Is this okay yet?' after about 3 photos, so these are really simple shots of me that are unedited too.
I've never really been a fan of gingham because of the common use of white in the pattern, but when I saw this I just fell in love with it; especially with the baggy chiffon feel and the frills in the middle, it gives me a sort of classic punky feel. In fact, it's pretty rare that I do like something that my mum brings home from a family friend and I count this as a good find.
+ bought the skirt off romwe and I have been wearing it (too much) with every top I own.

Okay, well, it's time for me to get ready for school now so,
Ciao for now,
