Well, hello there! My apologies for not posting lately... I have been preoccupied with other activities. Let's see, my daughter has just started teething (1 tooth has already poked out!) so she's not sleeping as well... I've been obsessed with making homemade cold-process soaps (a pretty expensive obsession)... And we've been up to visit my… Continue reading Crochet Fishes – FREE PATTERN
One of the things I love to crochet are hats. I used to have many different crochet hats. Unfortunately, when we moved house, I gave away many of them... But I've never made a crochet hat for a toy before. So in this blog, I set out to create a pattern for my Dumpy Doll!… Continue reading Crochet Hat For Your Dumpy Doll
I was debating whether or not to post this. Let me just get this out of the way first. This is not a pattern for beginner. In fact this is not really a pattern, it's more of a guide. You will need to be able to modify the guide to fit you. This unicorn slipper… Continue reading Crochet Unicorn Slippers (with flip flop soles!)

I've always wanted a daughter so I can be matching with her! At least until she's old enough to not want to match with her mum... But for now, since Tilly is only 3 months old, she really has no choice! Ha! So when JJ requested a bunny hat (he later decided he doesn't want… Continue reading Crochet Infinity Scarf Rabbit Scoodie

They could be showing this pretty skincare because everyone else is doing it, or because they were sent the products for free and they want to keep getting free stuff, or because they… Continue reading DIY Unicorn Antioxidant Oil
A couple of months ago or so I stumbled upon a photo and instruction of a crochet Frida Kahlo brooch on my Instagram. Ever since then I would find photos of crocheted Frida Kahlo in some kind or other. Inspired by that, I came up with my own Frida Kahlo clutch! You can now purchase… Continue reading Crochet Frida Clutch
If you've seen my last post, then you'll know that I recently bought a lot of micas! But I also bought some makeup ingredients like calcium carbonate, magnesium myristate, silica microsphere, cetyl alcohol and some more oils and sericite mica. With those ingredients, I had a busy but fun day of making more makeup. The… Continue reading DIY Marie’s Airbrushing Primer Stick / Light Foundation and Stick Blush and Bronzer!

Well this has been a fun week for me! Look at this package! There's micas inside! Before I get into the swatches, I want to tell you about where I get my micas from. I get my micas from Amor Aromatherapy. I found that they have more micas than any other shops there. The shop… Continue reading Mica Haul and Swatches!!!
So, Pinterest has lately been showing me a lot of pins for homemade, natural, mineral foundation. It makes sense really. I make a lot of my own makeup. In fact, the only thing I don't make are my eyeshadows and mascara. Mostly because I like a mascara that's super lengthening and voluminizing and easy to… Continue reading Spices, superfood powders in natural, mineral makeup – Why you shouldn’t even try…
