DIY flower crown

With summer approaching and the fresh memory of spring blossoms, I’d been thinking about making one of these flower crowns for a while. I’d seen the hippie headbands all over stores in April, but if like me, you happen to be blessed with pixie ears and thin hair, you’re going to need something with a little more structure. If you know me well, you’ll know I’m a hippie at heart so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some silk flowers and wire and get to work. Thanks to Bleubird and Green Wedding Shoes for the inspiration and know how, and thanks to Sayo for snapping my end result. What do you think? Hope you like it! xoxo.

Japan diaries: Irasshaimasssee!!

Hi there!
 
Irasshaimase!!” is what every store clerk in Japan screams at potential/already in store customers.  Sometimes I’m not quite sure if the intent is to welcome or to scare the living daylights out of, but strangely enough, it’s something I’m going to miss when I one day leave this intriguing country.
