DIY: Distressing your boyfriend jeans

You see, finding the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans is not an easy task, and I'm never one to spend a ton on ripped denim that I could easily destroy myself. lol. When it comes to boyfriend jeans, I still like them slim. Many come just a tad too baggy and aren't the best for showing off your shape. I have a pair of skinny fit in my drawer for some time now, the reason I'm not wearing it anymore because it was my Uni time's jeans. Whether the jeans got smaller or I'm the one who got fat. You got the idea. So, I've been in a so-called 'diet' programme for couple of months now, not a food diet in particular but it more to supplement consumption and in order to see my changes in term of the 'I'm-less-fat-than-before', I would like to try on my skinny fit jeans to see whether it still fit me!

Surprisingly the 25 size skinny fit jeans suits me again very well but since this old jeans look truly old, I wanted to do something different with it, and I realize they are perfect starter for creating my own boyfriend jeans. They are still fitted around the butt and thighs but loosen up just enough around knee and calves- perfect for a skinny fit for boyfriend jeans that still show off the goods. 

So grab that old pair of loose jeans hidden in your closet and give them a sweet little makeover with easy tutorial. 

First, try on your jeans to have an idea of what areas you would like to distress. If you would prefer to make a mark rather than simply eyeball where on the jeans you intend to distress, use chalk or a pen. 


Cut straight, horizontal slits over the areas you want to distress. The slits should be 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch from each other, which will make pulling out the blue threads even easier. 

Use the tweezers to pull the blue threads, but only in the areas you've cut. It's okay if you can't get them all, or if you have blue fuzz in certain areas. It's all even out in the wash-pun intended!
Do this until only the white horizontal threads are exposed. Continue to do this distressing anywhere else on the jeans that you like. And if you're feeling real spicy rip holes in the knees! But hey ladies, if you don't really want to exposed your skin like me, I have a better way to style the old jeans without showing off your skin. 

I used a very old white t-shirt and sew it under the jeans around the distressed areas. It's very easy.

Pull out the rest of your outfit and voila! You're ready to rock n' roll. 

I also include my video on how to distressed your boyfriend jeans. Enjoy!

DIY Dulang Hantaran Fresh Flowers

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Last week was my BIL E-day. So I was assigned by my MIL to do the 'Dulang Hantaran' and it decorations including all the goodies inside the dulang.. since this is only the engagement event, not so much personal items to be included in the dulang except for the rings.. both for merisik and engagement..
Since last time during my Nikah day, I did the DIY dulang hantaran using the artificial flowers and this time around I was thinking to do it with the fresh flowers. I purposely wanted it that way just because I can save a lot of time (since I am way too busy with my PhD study and I have to travel to and fro KL-JB) and at the same time we can avoid the hustle of keeping the dulang covered with dust in the store room. Lol..talking about experience huh!
And most importantly.. we can save a lot of money.. Lemme show you the trick..

Sending off dulang for fresh flower decorations can cost you up to RM75 to RM150 per tray excluding the items inside the dulang. Mi…

Saving the best for the last-Me!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t..
B's nature of work leaves me with no choice but to be independent. His work schedule knows no weekends and public holiday. But a kaki jalan I am by nature and nurture,what if it's only me and Aulia'? bring it on! Nak keluar jugak! I thought  it was impossible at first but naaa, practice makes perfect, I am so used to it already, you'll be surprised of what I can do with only one hand. Haha The skills develop naturally. From folding stroller and do groceries shopping while pushing the cart and her stroller? I have done all that. But there are time I do need hands from strangers, and kudos to Malaysians, they're helpful. And I think this is the perfect bonding time because Aulia' is with her baby sitter during the weekdays.


So there are times, I'd love to doll up, but now I have a plus one! How? I doll her up as well! luckily she's a daughter, dear God thanks for being so understanding! I am grateful! Tutu you say?! Of course! and…

Aulia' tindik telinga:)

Assalammualaikum wbt..
Anak dara aku dah lama mintak dok nak pakai subang..alahaii..girly stuff gitu. Dia tengok aku pakai makeup dia pun nak makeup. Tengok pakai lipstick dia pun nak jugak. . . Bulan lepas ni dia tengok ada sorang girl dalam lingkungan umur 4-5 tahun kat mall pakai subang..Dia kata cantik..dia pun nak..

Memang selalu dia buat ayat macam tu kalau nak apa-apa..

"Ibu..cantiknye yang kat telinga dia tu ibu..tengok tu..apa tu? Aulia' rasa Aulia' pun nak la jugak"

Haa gitew..

Aku pun cakap..

"Tu subang. Nak pakai subang, kene tindik telinga dulu. Klau nak tindik, kene tembak dulu telinga sampai berdarah baru boleh pakai subang.."

Aku saja bagi cerita horror sikit kat dia so conversation tu boleh stop kat situ..

Dia pun tenung je aku bila aku sebut "berdarah-darah" tu...agaknya tak berani nak continue cerita lagi. Hahaha.Berjaya!


Ternyata aku salah. Anak aku boleh memorize cerita aku sampai la malam masa nak tidur memang kami akan baca…
