Bad Teacher Movie

Last week we watched a movie staring Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake.It's a comedy but don't expect an ordinary story with a villain and a good guy.Cameron plays a junior high teacher who is really self-centered and her only priority is to find a man who can financially support her.After her break up with her sugar daddy she's starting her quest to find her next "victim".Justin is the best target but the only way she thinks she can win his heart is by getting surgery to enlarge her breasts.

So she starts an attempt to raise money with differnet ways


It should be mentioned that she is addicted to drugs, she drinks a lot and she usually sleeps through class. Also she hits kids,swears a lot and uses everyone to achieve her goal.


But despite the fact that she's nearly 40 she's still hot!

Weird Things

I was watching pointless videos on youtube as always and I accidentally run into a really weird japanese video.
It took me a while to realise that this video wasn't a joke but the product was real O.O

Anyway, I find this amusing so I want to share it with you :


Well done Japan :P

All the types of yarns and their characeristics with pictures
It has all the supplies you might need and what they are for
lots of simple and more complicated projects
Step by step guide with all the basic techniques
Various patterns
Illustrated guide of stiches

Maybe you can find these iinformations online but i like that they are all gathered in this nice book :D 


I bought mine from bookstore. What i did is finding all the books i could find about knitting and then i sat down and went through all of them until i found my favorite one :)

I also need a good sewing book.. Do you have anything in mind? :/

~Knitting and crocheting~


Reasons to start knitting/crochetting:

1) It's calming
2) It doesn't require lots of space.
3) it doesn't cost a lot (compared to sewing or other crafts)
4) You can make awesome stuff
5) Some people use it as therapy
6) You can set aside a project and get back to itwhenever you feel like
7) you can have more that 1 projects running at the same time




Well i started knitting recently and i haven't finished my first project yet cause i bought expensive yarn and i didn't expect that  a scarf would need 5 balls of yarn (i only bought 3)

But i loved knitting. Although I discovered it's not as easy as i thought... Well,  ordered a whole lot of needles in different sizes from ebay and crochet hooks. And tommorow i'll got buy lots of cheap acrylic yarn in various colors to start making my own little amigurumis (i have to buy stuffing as well), scarfs etc

Amigurmi: (crocheted or knitted stuffed toy) is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. 

Well what got me into knitting are these beautiful stuff i see online:

Jelly Cake With Sponge Fingers Biscuits

This is a lovely recipe of jelly cake with sponge fingers biscuits!
This cake isn't an ordinary cake because it is really quick, easy and tasty :)




The ingridients we'll need are:

  • milk 
  • 1 pack of sponge finger biscuits
  • 2 packs of instant cream milk powder
  • 2 packs of jelly





We dip the sponge finger biscuits in the milk to make them soft





After dipping we place them in a large glass platter as close to each other as we can
.




When we are done placing them we are puting above them the cream we made according the instructions in the box

We should make sure that the cream has covered all the biscuits 
Now it's time to place the glass platter in the fridge to cool the cream and we make the jelly according to the instructions in the box and we also put it in the fridge until it is almost done





This is how the final result should look like :)


Now you can enjoy the really tasty and summery cake you have made :)

New Girl


I just watched the first episode of the New Girl and I'm really excited cause it's definitely gonna be my new favoute show :)

aishiteru 


was hilarious I must admit that I always loved her style, her hair, and her voice.

Let me say some things about the plot,
I must begin with the trully funny scene that Zooey wants to make a surprice to her boyfriend and comes earlier home without clothes :O
She was clumpsy and uncoordinated during the dance moves and when she said "I'm doing sexy thing with the pillow" I couldn't spot laughing.  Unfortunatelly she realises that her boyfriend is cheating on her O.O (how he could do that), so she is forced to find a new place to live.The new appartement she is looking for it's going to have 3 roomates and they are BOYS!


I won't say anything else about the show for now. Watch it and I'm sure that you'll love it :)

Button necklace

Hi Everyone :)
2 days ago i made this necklace and i decided to show you how to do it as well 
isn't it cute?





So keep on reading....


Time:
15 Minutes


Difficulty:
Super Easy



You will need:
1)buttons
2)small piece of fabric
3)ribbon
4)glue



 First of all you gather your buttons and play around with them until you find a shape you like. You can also glue buttons on top of each other and create cool effects. I wish i had heart and flower shaped buttons to make this piece even cooler!






Glue the buttons on the fabric. It doesn't matter if the glue sticks on the top of your buttons cause you can always scratch it of once it's dryed
 Once you buttons are ready  you can draw a cute outline that you like




Cut around the outline you draw


Get a cute riddon and cut to pieces.



























Sew the ribbon ends on the necklace


Tie the ribbon at the back of your neck making a cute bow and.... YOUR DONE!

easy right??



I think it would look even better if the buttons where sewn in and the outline was hand-sewn as well.... But i was really bored when i did this. Maybe i'll make a better version later on once i get my hands on some more interesting buttons :)


If you have any questions please ask me :)

Daphne
