Flower Child: DIY Flower Crown

I am a fan of  Lana Del Rey! Her music and her style is just awesome! One Sunday when I was enjoying my daily dose of Ms. Rey, I got the great idea of channeling my inner Lana by making a flower crown.

I used items I found in my house to make it and it came inreally  handy for Halloween (I went to my Rotaract Club's Halloween Lyme as Katy Perry in her "Roar" video).

I gathered an assortment of flowers from around my house

I used my tape measure to find the circumference of my head. I then took an elastic band (I found in my sewing kit) and cut the diameter + 5 inches extra to allow me to tie the crown

I aligned the flowers in the order I wanted
I used a needle & thread to secure the flowers on the elastic

Here is the finished flower crown!
I'm feeling Electric tonight...
Lana Del Rey is simply...AWESOME

Let's See What You Have To Offer 2014!

I am here sipping a Red Stripe beer and reflecting on what turned out to be not such a bad year. I learned alot in 2013 and experienced alot while making a few mistakes. My 2013 victories and defeats, I hope, will be the foundation for a great year.

I am not a resolution kind of girl but I have decided to make a few needed changes in my life this year... so I guess that makes me a resolution kind of girl after all (LOL).

Here goes:

1. To trust myself a little more. 2013 taught me the power of believing in ME.
2. Never allow loneliness to be an excuse to stay in a not so happy relationship (FRIENDSHIPS INCLUDED)
3. Be financially responsible....ENOUGH SAID
4. Smile at least ONCE a day
5. Continue exploring
6. Conquering fears (started in 2013)
7. Master that which I am good at
8. Survive school!
9. Leave Jamaica (& the Jamaican Territory) for at least 5 Days again
10. Truly Love...even when it is the HARDEST thing to do.

I will work to achieve these goals and try to make my 2014 experience AWESOME!

Happy New Year All!
