I love this video, because in the end we all have the same style evolution (just on a much much smaller budget).

Spending time in the kitchen does pay of

 I wanted to make something nice for my family this past Sunday so I decided to make some Papanasi (which I had never done before) - its kind of a donut made with cottage cheese and filled with jam and sour cream. I found this wonderful recipe, but since its in Romanian I'm gonna make a resume in English so you can make your own if you like.

Ingredients you will need:
  • 500g of cottage cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • a pinch of salt 
  • a pinch of baking soda   
  • 10 to 15 tablespoons of flour   
  • some sugar 
Put all of the above ingredients in a bowl and stir until the dough no longer sticks to your hand. Then form two smaller and two larger balls of dough. Make a whole through the center of the larger balls with your finger. Fry all 4 dough balls in hot oil. 
When done fill the wholes with sour cream and jam, put the smaller balls on top as a little hat, and you are done.

Distressed denim cut-offs

I've been craving a pair of distressed cut off denim shorts for a while now and I finally decided to make my own from an old pair of jeans instead of spending a bunch of money on the new ones.
If you are considering making your own distressed cut-offs this is what you will need:

1. a pair of old jeans

2. a grater

3. scissors and 4.seam ripper

Step one:
cut your shorts down to size (you can use a pair of shorts you already have and like the length of as a model or just measure before you cut)

then roll up the bottom part, for a better finish

for the distressed look you can use the grater to soften the material. Then you will have to remove the blue thread so that the white ones are showing. The white thread runs vertically while the blue one horizontally so you will need to cut the horizontal blue threads and then pick them out one by one with the help of the seam ripper.

Ta da

Have fun making your own!
