///DIY-Studded Converse


For the longest time I have been dying to stud my converse. I know it's something totally overused and kinda sorta unoriginal (well, now), but I had to do it! I think it adds a sort of modern/rock touch to any outfit (lol) But yeah, here are the instructions~

What you'll need:
• A pair of hightop converse- any color
• Studs- I bought 200pc 8mm gold pyramid studs & 200pc 8mm silver pyramid studs off of Etsy
• A penny or a dime or a nickel or whatever
• A hammer
• A rag

1) Take your converse, choose the color stud, and design... Just google designs if you feel uninspired
2) Once you've found everything, start studding. Start from the bottom so the lines can look/ will be even.
3) As you start studding, you'll realize that the studs you push in fold in the back, to fold them use the penny or dime etc... and use it to push it down
4) Don't worry if you mess up, it's fairly easy to take the stud out and replace it with a new one.
5) When you're done and you like your design, find a hard surface, nothing too fragile (you'll be hammering the shoe).
6) Take the rag, and fold it so it's thick, and place your shoe on the side (where the studs are touching the rag, MAKE SURE THAT THE RAG IS THICK ENOUGH SO IT WON'T DAMAGE YOUR STUDS). Open your shoe so you can hammer the inside. This is so the pricks of the studs don't open and scratch you lol

It took me a only a couple of minutes to make this design so have fun and enjoy!

I'm not much of a beauty connaisseur or inspiration but, since I'm in France, I get the opportunity to discover and eventually overuse little French products found in pharmacies. These pharmacies, found in every town/almost on every block, literally contain everything. From antibiotics to body lotion. Whenever I go into town, I somehow end up in there and manage to find a few gems that I love to talk about/ recommend. Here are a few:
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse - Dry Oil Spray For Face, Body & Hair
#1: This little glass bottle might just contain the best stuff on earth. It can do wonders to every single part of your body; your hair, face, skin, cuticles, etc...!! I love using it after a long, long day out in the sun... Hydrates perfectly. The brand also provides the same oil with gold sparkles to add a little glimmer to you skin. (Approx. $30-$50)

La Roche Posay Effaclar K Acne Daily Clarifying Treatment
#2: This. is. life. I love love love this product (or anything by La Roche Posay). After cleansing, I like to apply it all over my face when I realize that my skin is starting to break out. The next day when I wake up, no more breakouts! However, I recommend using a good moisturizer as this cream may irritate the skin. (As an acne treatment, it drys out the pimples leading to dry skin... and then dry skin leads to pimples lol). (Approx. $15-$25)

La Roche-posay Effaclar Ai Intensive Acne Spot Treatment
#3: I consider this product #2's partner in crime. After I use Effaclar K, I usually put Effaclar AI on pimples that casually want to lurk on my face. (Approx. $10-$20)

#4: LA BIAFINE!!!! I promise you, this product is in every French's house. Perfect for all ages! It's the ultimate sun burn elixir. After a long day of being careless in the sun and realizing that you might just have the worst sun burn on planet earth, Biafine has your back! (Pun intended). Apply a ton of this cream everywhere and your burn will heal and feel so much better. (Approx. $40)
There you have it! My all-time favorite products, let me know if you use it/plan on using it!
