GET THE LOOK: RIVERDALE

Here is my new Get the Look for one of my favourite series, Riverdale. I chose not to do Archie for this one, focusing on the girls' looks as well as Jughead's (<3). Enjoy!

DIY KIMONO


What you'll need:

- fabric
- fabric scissors
- sewing machine
- pins
- ruler

How to do it:

1. For this kimono I chose a dark red coloured fabric with lovely white patterns. It was 1.5m in width and 2m in length. The first thing you need to do is to take your fabric and fold it in two. 

2. I have chosen to draw directly onto the fabric to spare some time. The measurements indicated are the ones I used to make a loose fitting kimono. You can adjust them to your size.

3. I started off by drawing the sleeves of my kimono indicated in blue on my drawing and then I drew the line going from the underarm to the end of the raw edge indicated in pink. Instead of drawing both sides, I drew only one half of the kimono, folded my fabric in two once again and then cut out the kimono in order to have it symmetrical.
I then drew the neckline indicated in green on my drawing. Once this was done, I cut the neckline opening making sure to cut through only one layer of fabric. 

4. Now take out your sewing machine and sew and hem all the parts shown on my drawing. Use a straight stitch, staying as close as possible to the edge of the fabric.

And you are done!

DRAGON FRUIT SMOOTHIE BOWL

Smoothie bowls are the perfect breakfast, dessert or snack. They taste delicious and make you feel amazing. Smoothie bowls are very trendy and we can see why.
Here is my recipe for a dragon fruit smoothie bowl:


Ingredients:

- Dragon Fruit (Red & White)
- Mango
- Kiwi
- 1 Banana
- Flax Seeds
- Granola Bites
- Almond Milk (Coconut flavour)

How to make it:

1. In your blender, add in all your chopped fruits and blend. 

2. Add in the almond milk and blend again until very smooth.

3. Pour your smoothie into a bowl and top with fruits, seeds and granola.

4. I started with the flax seeds and the granola. For my bowl, I used about 4 small granola bites, 2 of which I cut into little pieces. I continued with the kiwi, mango pieces, dragon fruit and sprinkled some more flax seed over them. 

For this recipe, I used fresh fruit because I prefer the smoother texture but you may also use frozen fruits if you want it thicker. 

And that is all! Dig in and don't forget to take photos!

DIY DISTRESSED BLEACHED TEE





What you'll need:

- T-Shirt (I got mine at a Japanese recycle shop for $1.25)
- fabric scissors
- razor (optional)
- spray bottle
- bleach

This is the t-shirt I chose:




How to do it:

1. For this DIY, make sure to do it on an even surface away from anything you are afraid might get stained by the bleach. So stay away from any antiques!

2. I started off by cutting a small V shape into the t-shirt. There was already a small V beneath the neckline on my t-shirt so all I had to do was cut it out.




3. Once I did this, I proceeded to put little and big holes in the t-shirt to give it that distressed look. I used the scissors to make the holes and made sure to stretch out the bigger holes with my fingers to make it look ripped rather than cut.




4. I continued distressing the t-shirt with the scissors to create rips. You may also use the razor for this part.



















5. Once I was happy with the distressed look, I put the bleach in a small spray bottle and sprayed the bleach on the different parts of the t-shirt. I also chose to spill some bleach onto the shirt making bigger stains. The bleach stains should appear immediately.




6. I soaked the t-shirt in cold water to stop the bleach from bleeding through too much and then I let it dry overnight.




And you should have a lovely distressed t-shirt ready to show-off the next day!
