DIY Ideas

This fold-over pouch DIY is too cute. I especially love the fabric she used.

EEEEP! This paint chip wall art is amazing! I am in love.

These little Polaroid magnets are adorable!

This cement pot DIY is pretty cool. You could also use these to hold bits and bobs.

I recently discovered the website, Ravelry, and have been meaning to give a pattern a try. This one is super cute.

Have you done any awesome DIY projects lately?

I Love Target

Target's sales are so awesome! I got all of these plates for just about $10! Look how cute they are, eeep! I am so excited!
I have been collecting random things for when Dominick and I move into an apartment together. These are the newest addition to the collection. We were so excited as we kept adding more of them into our cart. Dominick said, "Oooh! We can use the camera plate for a fancy dip and put chips and stuff on the other plates!" People walking past probably thought we were nuts because we were tripping out over some plastic plates. Hahaha.

Have you gotten any great deals at Target? What do you like to shop for there?

Stuff I Luff #31

Eeeep! I am in love with these CMYK necklaces

I have been collecting as many chunky beanies as possible for this upcoming fall. This one is absolutely perfect.

This deer print is so lovely.

I like the look of these jeggings in the photos, but i'm not sure if they would be too much like leggings to be worn as pants.

These notebooks are SO cute. I love them all so much, I wouldn't be able to choose!

Outfit: Peter Pan Collar

I was super excited to try out my very first detachable peter pan collar! This one is from Jeeze Julia and it is amazing.
I was having a hard time at first finding something to wear with this collar. Then I decided that I was over thinking it and wore it with this simple polka dot dress. 
Peter pan collar- c/o Jeeze Julia
Dress- Dot's
Belt- Thrifted 
Trusty ole flats- Target

I am going through quite a collar phase right now so when I find collar-less shirts at the thrift, I always pass on them. Next time I am out, I am going to hunt a few patterned shirts down to wear with this collar. I could always cut the neckline of a t-shirt to work better with the collar as well.

How do you wear your detachable collar?

DIY Ideas

I'm trying out something a little new for the DIY Ideas this time. I am going to start including recipes since technically recipes are DIY. 

I have been obsessed with scarfs, rightfully so since fall is rapidly approaching. This circle scarf DIY involves a little sewing, but it seems simple enough.

This clutch DIY is so cute! It looks like something you would buy from Urban Outfitters or something.

Now that I have read this amazing tutorial, I want to make patterns! That would be so neat!

This berry iced green tea looks delicious. It reminds me of the strawberry juice my sister made awhile back.

I remember making this ice cream in 1st grade! I can't wait to try it again!

Guest Post//Emily's Outfit

Sponsor post photo all things pretty
Hello guys! I am so happy to be guest posting here at Lazy Explorers! My name is Emily, and I am a soon to be 14 (10 days!!) year old girl living in Australia. I blog over at CraftyGirl*. I love to spend my days crafting, playing with my blythe dolls, going thrifting, taking photos and movies and having fun! I love to blog about these things too.
One thing that I am really passionate about is fashion. I love to dress up in pretty, vintage things and try my hardest to be my own individual, and not be pressured by the media to look a certain way. On my blog, I really encourage brave fashion for young girls! Sometimes we tend to not wear something we love because "people might stare!" or "they might not like it"! Well, I try to encourage everyone that it doesn't matter what other people think about you, all that matters is if you feel good in what you wear and live it!
I post every Friday with an outfit I wore over on my blog, and today I will be sharing an outfit over here on Lazy Explorers - yay! Here is What I Wore...

I hope you have enjoyed my outfit! And remember, always wear your clothes confidently and be brave, and don't let anyone put you down or discourage you from what you love! It was absolutely wonderful to guest post here, thank-you SO much Chloe! xoxo, Emily

Thanks for posting Emily! You are so inspiring to the younger and older bloggers. I hope you continue doing what you love and succeed through life.
