DIY - Bleached ombre shorts

I've been drooling over honestlywtf's DIY for months now and I finally found the time to do a DIY myself. 
I really loved this one, but I decided to do it a little different. I had an old jeans in the back of my closet that would be perfect for my project. My plan: Turn the jeans into shorts, bleach and them ombre dye them. 

What do you need:
//Latex gloves
//Liquid dye
//Old jeans
//Color remover

First decide how long you want the shorts to be, then start 'slicing' the fabric with your scissors. This will give you the cut-off look you want. 

After you cut your shorts to the right length (try them on to make sure) it's time to use the color remover. Read the instructions carefully, I had to pour hot water into a pan and add my shorts. After that I had to heat the water until it's almost at boiling point and keep the shorts in for 30 minutes.
When this is done, make sure you wash the shorts in the washing machine to make sure all the color remover is out.

This part is actually the same as the HonestlyWTF DIY. I had to use 6L water and 250gr salt and 50ml water for the dye. Add the two mixtures together and let the fun begin!
First add 1/3 of the dye to the water for the largest (and lightest) part of the short. Keep your short in the mixture for 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes clean the shorts with water and add another 1/3 dye to the water. Repeat the process but keep your shorts in the mixture for 5 minutes now. For the last and darkest layer repeat the previous step with the last 1/3 of dye.
After you did all this, wash the shorts again. Leave them to dry and you are good to go!

Shorts are still wet here, but I needed to take a picture :)

Important; When dipping your short into the dye, keep a sort of 'dipping' movement going or else you'll get a straight line instead of a fading on. You can see it at picture 4. I had to buy new dye and repeat step 2 and 3 to make it work. 


Home - It's all in the details

As some of you may know, me and my boyfriend bought an apartment together last summer. It is actually a big milestone, my first house! I thought it would be nice to share some details, the last time I showed picture the house looked like this. Can you believe the difference?
We worked so hard on this apartment to make it our dream home and it is not even close to being finished, but there are already spots in the apartment that I really really love.

//Dining table
//Light in a jar
//Personal books and frame 


Inspiration // Spring essentials

While surfing the net my eyes get automatically drawn to all what's printed and multi-colored. The sun is shining more often and temperatures are slowly going up, which means Spring is on its way! 
This is my wish list, for now. I'm sure as new items arriving each week, this list will change from time to time. But this is a pretty solid lists, the items are all spring proof and will hopefully make their way into my wardrobe somehow.

Amsterdam on ice

The ice and snow is long gone by now, but I couldn't resist sharing these pictures. It's been about 12 years ago since the canals in Amsterdam where solid ice and you could iceskate on them, which makes it extra special.
It is also really weird to stand on crisp white canals and see Amsterdam from a different angle. It was that one moment of standing on the ice that I started loving ice and snow on a whole different level.
