today's project:homemade cereal bars

bran flakes,oatmeal,brown sugar and cinnamon in yummy chunks
These last few days I've been in a diy mood! My lastest buys were a cute polka-dot Zara pleated skirt and cuffs from the kids department at H&M-finally, cuffs that are my wrist size!!!  I also bought a spray in a colour called ''Piggy Pink'',lol! This is so great- I love it! My spray paint project was inspired by pinterest.When I buy food that comes in jars I always throw them away but feel bad about it (there's no recycling bins where I live now!-shocking,I know!!!).But now that I can make them pretty and uniform I'm certainly gonna use them! Plus I love the jar storage ideas I saw in pinterest-instead of putting things in boxes and then opening several trying to find where is what,I can put them in jars and see the content! Practical too! I just looove how the lids turned out! I also spray painted an oatmeal canister but left the lid the original yellow colour! My diy ''fever'' lead me today to make an attempt at making homemade cereal bars. I used four ingredients because these were what I had at home-bran flakes,oatmeal,brown sugar and cinnamon-next time I'm gonna add almonds or nuts,too.I mixed the bran flakes with the oatmeal.Then I made some syrup with water,brown sugar and cinnamon which tasted so divine even by itself-I thought about saving some to use in coffee but then forgot about it!Oh well,next time! Then I poured it over the cereal and pressed it evenly with a spatula.Left it for a couple hours and cut it in chunks.If you use a pizza cutter you can cut rectangular pieces to resemble store-bought cereal bars.I'm definitely making these again,they taste delicious and are very healthy! Last week I also tried making oreo truffles with a recipe I found on pinterest.They are made with oreos and cream cheese and chocolate.I tweaked the recipe a bit and used coconut on some of them as you can see.I also used milk and dark chocolate.Don't they look pretty? As for my diy bracelets, I made them using the left over fabric from the t-shirt I used to make this necklace and some thread.That's all for now, I know it's a different post than usual,hope you liked it! How was your weekend lovelies? xoxoxo,Marina

Any Given Sunday!

This is the bracelet we were given at the christening! it matches my nails,too!!
with my friend Antigoni at her baby's christening-it was a lovely event!

me in the same coat many many many years ago! :)

A leopard-print coat is an investment! If you're an animal print lover you'll be wearing it for years-Mine was from Zara,it's soft and furry and I've had it for a LIFETIME!! And here's proof! this Sunday I wore it to the christening of a friend's baby and above you can see me wearing it literally ages ago-I'm a whole different person but my coat is the same and I still love it!I think I'm gonna be wearing it for ever!:)) How do you feel about animal prints?? Oh and by the way, this is so NOT the outfit I wanted to wear but I left so hastily I threw a few clothes in my suitcase and totally forgot to pack my outfit and shoes for the event! So I had to make do with a sleeveless black dress hanging in the closet back home which I had never worn.I bought it a couple of years ago and it still had the price tag on it!! I also wore a black cardie which I intented to take off, but kept it on eventually because it was cooooold! I meant to wear a red one trimmed with sequins but I forgot!!! This weekend I was too absent-minded,I know!!! Shame really because it's my only chance for outfit photos,since I'm too busy or tired during the week!
How was your weekend? xoxoxo

quick post: glittery nails and lipstick lust

Just a quick post to show you my turquoise glittery nails and the new lipsticks I got-I'm a lipstick addict,that's not new,what's new is that instead of my usual pinks I went for nude and brownish tones! These are Avon's  'Really Rosy' ,'Never So Nude' and 'Mocha Madness' and I liked all of them,especially the last two.The nail polish is Avon nailwear pro in 'Sequined Turquoise'.
So glad it's Friday tomorrow,can't wait to finish work!Wish it was already Friday evening,but it's gonna be soooooon! Happy Friday! xoxoxo

This is just a fun post,don't take it too seriously! :) I went out but I wasn't really having fun so I left and I was about to drive 250km just before midnight to go home -I wasn't supposed to go again this weekend but just had a sudden impulse to do it-but then decided I should stay put since I had a couple of drinks while out...Then I  remembered I got my PINK HOLGA in the post today and just had to take a few pics and show it to you!! I have to buy rolls of film and learn how to use it!?!?!! The main reason I got it is because it's pink and white and sooooo cute!!
