diy: Christmas present storage box

I have been wanting to do some DIY's on here for the longest!
I decided that this would kick it off and I will pick back up in the new year!
It's something about making (and actually liking) something by hand!

★ all black everything ★ holiday glam series 2014 ★

Man, it feels as if I was just writing about the beginning of this series and it's over all ready!
Can you believe it's been 6 weeks already?  Christmas is in 6 days!  Are you done with your shopping?
This week, I decided to try and dress this up.  I am not gonna lie, this was put together at the last minute!
My apartment complex is having all of these end of the year checks with our units and it's messing up all of my time!
I don't have the luxury of filming late at night while everyone's sleeping because I am loud, lol.

★ teal + gold ★ holiday glam series 2014 ★

Happy Friday ladies and gentlemen!  This week's Holiday Glam is opulent colors in the form of posh jewels!
I got this set from Fantasy Accessory Box about 2 or 3 years ago and I absolutely love it!
It's definitely a showstopper set and it also has a matching hair piece to go along with it.
I feel like this can't be worn on a regular day though.
The earrings OR the necklace, but not both together!
Holiday parties would be the perfect time to crack it out!

final update

So after all of the coloring, re-coloring, constructing, demoing and reconstructing, this baby is finally finished and to a place that I want it!  I am in total LOVE with this wig!  Every bit of work that was put into it was well worth it!

curls for days...

 Oh this unit is soooo gorgeous!  This is my latest beauty from RPG Show and it's item number NC003.  Pure gorgeousness!
The specs are 20" (stretched) and natural #2 hair color.
I dyed the roots a natural black color because y'all know I'm funny with certain colors!

look from holiday glam #4

I loved this outfit so much that I decided to write up a dedicated post for it!
I've had this skirt for about 6 or 7 months and I adore it so much!
I also have it a neon green color.  I decided to pair the opulence of this skirt with the simplicity of this boyfriend shirt.
I got it a couple sizes smaller so that it would fit better.

★ glitter lips ★ holiday glam series 2014 ★

Happy Friday Loves!  This weeks Holiday Glam is all about these glittery lips I did.
I absolutely LOVE the whole glitter lip look and I was excited to give it a try for the first time.
I think it turned out great BUT I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to photograph them.
Looks like I am going to have to do a little research on the settings and lighting to get the perfect shot!
