DQ: DIY Queen

By  | 

A while back, me and my fellow blogger divas had a girly talk. We tackled topics from fashion, beauty, life, blogging, relationships, gossip, and random things. At one point Sandra of said she has a new nickname for me, which is DQ. No, not the Dairy Queen ice cream brand. LOL. It stands for DIY [do it yourself] Queen for my random DIY Crafts and share. Even if I didn’t have much DIY Craft to share, I did have a few that I am proud of.

Which got me thinking… I haven’t shared any DIY’s in a while. So I am preparing a few ideas already which I will be sharing this upcoming week. 🙂 My last crafts are mostly of remaking an outfit to a cosmic shirt or an envelope clutch from a map, but this time it will be beauty related. This will be good, so watch out for it. 😛

Anyway, today I have a DIY-ish related entry. I have always wanted the worn out ripped jeans look and since I can’t find one with the certain rip that I am looking for —if you’re guessing I did it myself, the answer is YES. So I grabbed a paper cutter and kept running them over the jeans. I don’t have a tutorial for it as it is pretty basic. For those of you who would want to have a top like the one I have, check out PunkaLife lovely Eagle print crop top shirt. —and of course I did take pictures after. Ha! You should of seen that coming already. LOL.

Love it? Hype it!

Ripped Jeans



Photo of the Moment

Yep… that’s the remote for my camera. :]] I wasn’t planning to snap in full picture. I honetly thought I have zoomed enough that it will capture from neck below. I was aiming to have both of my hands in the picture so I decided to bite off on my remote. 😛 Only to end up having the whole “moment” captured in the photo. Yes some of you may say *eeew* LOL. (FYI: I do sanitize my remote with alcohol in a cotton ball of tissue ) I decided not to edit the picture nor crop it and post it as it is just for laughs. 😛

The shipping in handling is absolutely great. They have carefully packaged the item by placing it in a plastic ziplock before placing it in a small parcel box and securing it with an outer packing tape and rope like tie. See the pictures and review here.

FTC: The Crop Top shirts were sent to me for review purposes by PunkaLife. I’m not affiliated with PunkaLife and as always, this is 100% my honest opinion. Also, I’m not getting paid for this review.

Also, this ensemble is my typical and casual going out look. Jeans, top and some accessories. What’s your typical outfit look? 😛 Til’ next! xox.

My name is Angela Ricardo Bethea and I am the founder and editor behind ( and many other online publications ) ... I love the finer things in life, I'm quite a shop-a-holic and a certified jet-setter. So if I am not behind my laptop to blog, I'd probably be shopping if not traveling.

    Same here sis, it’s kinda hard to find destroyed jeans that fits your style, sometimes the ripped parts aren’t on the right spot! <3 Me likey the outfit... and the jeans reminds me of a fabulous modern hippie when paired with the platforms 🙂

    Naku i totally agree! Kasi minsan diba for a certain height na talaga ang ripped jeans. Somehow sa pocket size na height nating mga asian its hard to find a match specially if bought online. 😛

    Thank you sissy! 😀
