It reminds me of when everything had to be bird-print a couple of years back. I'm still cleaning the birds out of my closet.
So when I found this second-hand gingham-patterned shirt, I couldn't go past it! But unfortunately, while it had the right pattern on it, it was a little bit boring and shapeless. So, I saved it with the power of upcycling, and turned into both a cropped-tee and a matching headband!
Here's a couple more pictures of me being super chuffed with myself in my new upcycled shirt (without the matching headband):
I'm finding so many of these in the deep, dark depths of my wardrobe, it's very exciting stuff :D
Shirt is DIY (patch is from Hong Kong)
Skirt is thrifted vintage
Shoes are Naot (Kedma)
Socks are Tutuanna (Japan)
Science of the Day
This is a bit self-promotey, but it's totally still science SO IT COUNTS. My partner and I just released episode #2 of our new podcast (you can download/subscribe on iTunes here)! In this episode, we look at the myth that "Diet coke (and artificial sugar) gives you cancer".
We would love some suggestions of possible-science-myths to explore in future episodes, although we're already planning the next couple - number #3 will look at the podcast's namesake - the 10% of the brain myth, where it comes from and why it persists (as I don't think that many people actually believe in that one but it's interesting to know why its such a persistent myth!) and episode #4 is going to look at the notion that "redheads/blondes are going extinct".
Give episode #2 a listen, and if you do, we would super appreciate your feedback!
ONE MORE THING BEFORE I GO.
I wrote an article for Birdee where I slam some silly op-shopping misconceptions, and I also provide some thrifting tips! Have a read here if you haven't already!
That's it from me - I hope that you're all having a really lovely week,
