Review: Habitatt Tattoos

I remember growing up eating these Mamee snack noodles, and sometimes they would come with temporary tattoos in them! Sure they were pretty tacky (mostly the furry blue Mamee Monster eating the said snack noodles) but still pretty fun. Also, temporary tattoos are also the perfect alternative to permanent ones!

I stumbled upon Habitatt Supply Co (local Malaysian brand) temporary tattoos during the Markets @ Jaya One market and were quite hooked on their modern designs so I got a few (Bling Bling, Carpe Diem & Feather). At only RM8 for 3 pieces of each design, these are not only fashionable but affordable as well!

Printed with soy-based ink, it is compliant to the highest safety standards. I decided to try these Habitatt tattoos.

I wanted a fun ring party so I started with the diamond tattoos from “Bling Bling“.

Cut the desired shape.

Remove the clear protective top sheet. Make sure your skin is clean and dry. Press the Habitatt firmly onto skin with the design facing downwards.

Wet a tissue/cloth and press firmly against the back of the Habitatt. Make sure it is wet thoroughly.

Wait for 10-15 seconds (this is depending on the size) and slowly peel off the paper backing.

After this, rinse the Habitatt with water for best result on the skin.

Slip a ring below the diamond Habitatt, and boy, look at that carat!

These lasted 2 days for me, but was still happy with the result it achieved. I can’t wait to try the other designs from Habitatt!

DIY: Embellished Sunglasses

So I know that the right pair of sunglasses never fails to make one look good.

But do you know what makes one look even more awesome-er?

Embellished sunglasses. Like the amazing A-Morir embellished sunglasses like this (roses), this (embellished cat eye), this (chain trim) and below:

It’s been a while that I have been wanting to DIY my own embellished sunglasses but my superglue always dries up (even when I follow instructions to avoid this) that whenever I plan to make something I can’t!

However, I finally got some a week or two back and hey, now I have embellished sunglasses! It’s really easy to do, it only took me 20 minutes to make this 😀 Here’s my easy tutorial:

DIY: Embellished Sunglasses

What you need:

  • Sunglasses, preferably one that has a wayfarer (like above) or a cat eye frame.
  • Superglue
  • Bead string in gold
  • Rhinestone string in gold
  • Gold tubes
  • Toothpicks
  • Scissors
  • Scrap paper (to place the glue on)

DIY: Embellished Sunglasses

Step 1:

Trace the bead string along the top of the frame. I decided to use a bead string because well, it was all I had at the time and it saves you the trouble of sticking beads one by one! Once you’ve traced the length of the frame, cut it. Do the same for the rhinestone string.

Step 2:

Pour a dab of superglue onto your scrap paper. Use a toothpick, dab it into the glue and slowly dab the glue onto the frame. Quickly stick the bead string onto the glue and hold it there to let the glue do its thing!

Step 3:

Follow the frame of the sunglasses, every curve!

Step 4:

Do the same for the string of rhinestones! Once you are done it should look like the above. You’re nearly done! If you like it subtle, then just leave it as it is to dry. I for one, wanted to end it properly so…

Step 5:

…stick on a gold tube or two below the embellishment! Now you’re done 😀

How simple and easy was that? I am loving my DIY embellished sunglasses – especially so in this hot, sunny weather!
