ANOTHER DIY

dengradesign purple black hand fan gem christina aguilera


I was bored & had a packet of acrylic gems from Spotlight, a craft store in Singapore.
Started pasting at the sides of the hand fan that I got from Kate Dengra.
Swarovski crystals would be more glam if I have enough patience. 
On that day, I didn't have any so no bueno. But when I do...this is what I came up with.

Crystals - http://bit.ly/2onzUbK

Glue - http://bit.ly/2ofiT6t

Hotfix Applicator - http://bit.ly/2ohpPjO


You can get the brush holder, tool & good quality crystals on AliExpress without breaking bank.
I love DIYs but I must tell you this one up there was a total bitch =( ...Tedious process ever. 
Halfway through & I was like, '' why did i even...? ''
No wonder those bling phone cases are so jacked up in price. Don't do it when you are on PMS.

Like this old case of mine.
$79 USD. A hefty price, from LuxAddiction, style #289.
I also had a full on Swarovski phone case that cost me $200 over dollars from Ebay.


After realizing how stupid it was to throw money like that, ( because you are only gonna change phones again in the future & then what? ) I decided to just DIY whatever i can. My pocket is not deep enough to gratify my love for anything shiny. 

My first DIY was a very light one on a lampshade.
Here's another simple DIY which i did on my Trish McEvoy's Make Up Planner. 


Back to the fan...
If you find the fan familiar, you may have seen it on "The Voice" in the hands of  Miss Christina Aguilera. Kate Dengra is the maker of Christina's hand fans. She's originally from England and currently based in Spain. Her hand fans are available on Etsy.

Basic Chicken Curry




I got tired of eating out for curry one day & decided to youtube a recipe for chicken curry.
Found one of the best. A very detailed video & gave it try.
The basic, simple & easy chicken curry serves good with basmati rice or naan.
I usually hit it with rice. Can't love without rice.

Making your own curry rather than dining out, serves some kind of satisfaction to me, plus nothing beats a home cooked meal for the family.






Here's the video I was talking about. Don't be intimidated by the recipe.
It's really pretty easy. Just a matter of getting all the ingredients & dumping it into the pot.

This recipe is now my go to for curries.
You can also use beef or mutton with the same recipe albeit a longer cooking time.
My beef curry usually takes about 2 1/2 hours because I don't have a pressure cooker.
Give it a try. It's a fool proof recipe. Good luck !
