Is everybody in the holiday-spirit yet? I know I am! Every year, it's a must for me to paint my nails in festive colors. My own little dorky tradition. My sister came home today, and my friends are coming in a few days. Seriously love how the holiday seasons brings everybody together.

DIY Braided Knit Headband

Hey everyone!

I'm back with a fun DIY post: a braided knit headband. I got inspired by a similar headband from Urban Outfitters and thought I could easily make it myself, so I did! I love how it turned out. I will post my whole outfit with the headband on in a future post.

1. Start by knitting skinny strips. I did 5 stitches, but it all depends on how thick/thin you want your headband to be.

2. Here are the three strips I knitted. Leave one end of the strip extra long, so that you can sew the pieces together.

3. Take the three strips, and secure one end with an elastic to hold them together. Then, simply braid!

4. How your headband should look after braiding it.

5. Lightly pinch the braid to shape it nicely. Then, sew the two ends together, and the headband is complete!

Voila! Simple, right? It's a great accessory for the winter, and would be a cute hand-made gift. 

For the moment, I'm so happy I have two weeks off from school! I'm enjoying movies, sleeping in, and looking forward to Christmas with family and friends. I'll have more time to blog, too.

Holiday Gift Guide '12: Gadgets

2. Fuji Instax Camera would be so much fun at parties to take pictures, and print them out on the spot. 
3. Chanel Three book set, these books are packed with beautiful pictures of Chanel. They would also look great on coffee tables or as display.
4. BCBG Mini duffel keychain I'm a sucker for anything mini-sized, and this keychain is no exception. It would be great to put change and other random stuff. 
5. BCBG studded headphones These would be a great gift for music lovers! I think they would look cool just wearing them around. 
6. Camera lens mug... Definitely a dorky gift, but I think the photography/blog enthusiast would appreciate it. It is a mug that resembles a camera lens! How unique is that? 

Here are some more gift ideas, targeted towards the gadget-girl. The girl whose phone is overloaded with the latest apps, in-the-know of the newest camera lens, and obsessed with being 21st-century chic. I think we all know one person like that, right?

pumped up kicks

Yes, so I finally gave in to the sneaker wedge trend. After seeing my favorite bloggers rock these sporty kicks, it really inspired me to incorporate the boyish style into my girly outfits. I think they give a fun contrast to my beloved skirts. I hope this trend stays for a while, at least until the summer! I added a burgundy beanie to complete the "skater girl" look. 

It's almost the end of the semester, therefore I am preparing for my finals... but it's okay because I have some kick-ass winter break plans that I can hardly wait for!
