{handmade} – driftwood mirrors

As I was taking a little bit of a gander on Pinterest I stumbled upon these fantastic driftwood DIY mirrors. I’m not entirely sure about how exactly to make them but they do look very self explanatory. Besides, who wouldn’t want a driftwood mirror hanging up in their room. They are great to look at and would really add dynamic to any room.

Here are a few of my favourites which I would love to make some day.

Being busy with exams approaching quickly, I have been one hectic lady, with no spare time on her hands! anyway, back to business … being a girl, I really do love accessories, they can change a whole outfit and just add a little bit of charm to what you are wearing. I came across a cute little website called Polyvore. They have some lovely, quirky accessories that caught my eye. I thought I might share some of my favourites with you.
