Its all about Textile-ness!

"As a textile student-turning-designer" I made a few necklaces using textile materials more than using the usual chains and metal stuff  for necklaces. I used some pearls,  beads, and shimmery sequins to give an essence to it.
And i know they aint "OMG" but oh well! this is what i could make ^_^

 this first two are a choker...or u can even use it as a headband...i used styling tape and ribbons and small pearl beads.

 In this i used styling tape,macrame threads, pearls and silk threads for the tassles

Here ive used just the styling tape and the black pearls.

Use of black styling tape,gold ribbons, golden beads and a shimmery fusing tape for the flower.

all of them have been made using simple knotting and braiding techniques with tassels. All i wanted to do was to use the cheapest materials as much as possible and make them look pretty and exciting as that of those made out of the expensive materials. So yeah! that's all i made...i have to leave now. I got a project submission to be done in school and for the record i finished before time ha-ha.
Anyways have a lovely evening and keep updating and i will make you smile with my nonsense blabbers again.
Love and be Blessed!!!

Hello Diana!

Say hello to my "Diana - dreamer "! ^_^

Always been wanting it!!! like a rushing-itchy-urge to have it but couldn't get one because it wasn't sold anywhere here in India. And finally someone turned out to be my Santa Claus,  to gift me with this "Lomography Dreamer Diana F+ Camera", my first toy camera!!!  I swear i totally fell in love with it!!!

Dreamer proudly sits in my hand with its pretty coat of paleturquoise color, its surface textured on the corners. It holds a capacity of 16 pictures per roll. Right now im using the color ISO 400 film.

Me and my dreamer ^_^

Details about my pretty dreamer :
- Removable plastic lens to allow for wide angle pin hole shots.
- Ability to do endless panorama shots and multiple exposures
- 2 Shutter speeds
- 2 Picture sizes: 12 shot or 16 shot
- Requires 120 Medium format film
- Film available in: Colour ISO 100 / Colour ISO 400 / Black & White

I gave my first roll to be washed but unluckily it didn't turn out very well because that studio didn't really know stuffs about Lomography so for my next roll ive already done researches on studios that deals on this type of photography...and so im hoping to bring a better quality in my next blog! No editing straight from the film ->

Now check out these pretty more Diana varieties...don't you wish you could take a hold of all of it??? :D I wish i could have all this in my room more than shoes in my room lol

My Next money saving is going to be on a fish eye Lomo camera. i want it so baaaddd again :D. check out this one: 

Its a " Rip Curl & Lomography Fish Eye Camera "

So yeah! how'd you like?? Didn't it just make you smile? These little Plastic toy memory catcher, they always make me smile.

Some vintage shoot.

Had this styling photo shoot done for a group of friends for some school project ...themed on retro Vintage romance or something i can't really remember but yeah it was something to do with vintage haha. So wanted a bike and we found a bike for the shoot and the perfect location too. I liked the whole part of having a bike...the big bow for my headband...the floral shirt for the guy with suspenders , nerd glasses ( they are my real powered blind without it haha),  the wooden doors and window for the background and the green creepers with its pretty purple flowers. It gives the mood of a perfect retro vintage tale.
 SO here's some pictures from the shoot....hope you guys like it :)

My views on Religion.

I really have nothing much to say just this :
Jesus is my religion, Jesus is my faith and Jesus is my Life

All About The ONE

i was browsing across the blog maintained by Hillsong and here i found this organisation that supports and rescues women and children from human trafficking and it really caught me. You and i lets try to help in whatever way we can by praying or donating or create awareness around. Don't think you can't do anything for this. Call you friends, tell your mommy and we all can try to bring a change and a secure life for every women and child in this world.
Check out the link below and try you own way of helping :)
God bless and may He use you for the extension of his Kingdom.

Day three: Your view on Drugs and alcohol

Sorry guys i couldn't post yesterday i got busy.

My view..... hmm , i say No and i will always say No to it. Life is short why do we want to waste our life by letting this man-made-life-shortening- substances to come our way. People take drugs and alcohol because they think they are alone, because they think they are depressed and frustrated, because they had a broken family background, because they want to be a part of the coolest and IT group and how many more excuses people have to take these ill-ing stuffs. But id say Once you have Jesus in you life you wouldn't even try to look at it from the corner of your eyes or you wouldn't even want to be close to it but instead pity and pray for those who do.
You are not alone...Jesus is always there with you, if you already have him in your life then pray and fellowship with Him, and if you still don't have him then call for him . Jesus is waiting for you, and he will be your greatest friend no man can ever be. Loving Jesus is super cool, Never Ever Be Ashamed.
You can live your life clean if you want to. Be happy even in the saddest days, keep your calm and keep the Faith and keep hoping...God is always there for you and he's always close to you.
Jesus loves you and Jesus Saves <3

Ola people!
Happy Friday. For some reasons Friday-s always sets my mood right, don't it do that to you?? :D
My week was good, school was good, my friends were good :p , my family is good, my health is good and God was good once again to me by carrying me all through these days of the week. Amen! ^_^
Okay! i have this secret calling for weddings! i L-O-V-E weddings. Just everything about planning the wedding makes me uber excited!! From the dress, to the flowers, to the cakes and food, to the invitations, location, decor ...just everything that shouts "Wedding"! I wanna be a wedding planner someday. That will be my second job after being a fashion designer. i've also started planning my wedding (haha jokes). i just started collecting pictures for inspiration, no harm in doing that eh? ^_^.
Oh well for today i wanted to have some pictures here and show you some of my family and friend's wedding but since i aint at home, i couldn't get a lot...just a few that i got on facebook. The photos are not taken by me...i jus did a little editing.

           Here's my beautiful friend Tiffany on her blessed day!

      i Love her gown! more than sheaths and mermaid silhouette dresses id like A- line's or ball gown silhouettes. and this one is perfect! It makes Tiff look like a princess ^_^
 Her little flower girls dresses were simple tulle ankle length dresses, make them look like little angels with the floral head bands!
                                                 Tiff striking a pose with her bridesmaids.

 And this one's on my cousins wedding which was held at the lawn of her home.

i loved this fruit Tower, fruits of all was amazing!!! This was laid at the centre of the desert table.
     the wedding cake...i loved the floral design done on it. The cake was made by my mom's bestfriend.
                                           the handmade wedding banner on a silk fabric.
  And last but not the least.....a thing you might be knowing about it or you might just not know about it. Traditionally Indians like many others eat with their hands ( don't go ewww! lol), we dot eat with spoons and forks but yes! we eat with hands sometimes too. And for the guests at the wedding for those who wanted to eat with their hands we built this traditional wash-hand basin made out of bamboos! i really liked it and im thinking of something like this for my wedding too haha.

            Well thats all i could pick up for today. Ill get back next with something more to talk about. im hungry now, gonna have my dinner!!!
have a goody-goody weekend all. Stay good. Jesus loves
Toli <3

(ps: Tomorrow  i got a vintage photo-shoot to do for some group of friends...will update soon about it ^_^)
