Back to school! It's gotten a lot colder all of a sudden too. I have chill blains on my hands ・°・(ノД｀)・°・
But at least there are delicious tangelos to eat! Yum yum!
Winter means that I can do a lot more layering to keep warm (and to fulfill my desires of layered outfits haha). I've not been so good with hair styling (top knots galore!)- does anyone have any tips for styles with plaiting? I am just so useless at it! I was wondering if there was a secret trick to getting them right! ●´ω｀●

By sheer coincidence, I saw that Fern & Fawn's mori girl challenge for this month is collars! Just last Saturday I made a detachable collar, mostly to check out how to do it. The colours and construction are far from perfect- it was a trial run really.
I actually sewed the entire thing by hand (-_＼)... Never again... I'm not sure why I didn't use the sewing machine haha...
For the collar, I used the Detachable Peter Pan Collar pattern from BurdaStyle. It's free to download, but you will have to create a BurdaStyle account. It's definitely worth the effort though- there are many other great sewing patterns (free and pay). The construction instructions are very clear (although I only used the pattern), and there are photos to help you along the way if you're just a beginner sewer.
I found this box of unopened Moomin biscuits that my mother bought in Japan about 4 years ago haha
I've really been enjoying reading the mori memes that blogs, such as Fern & Fawn, Fawn & Doll and rats and rats and rats for candy have been doing! Maybe I should become more on-to-it and do one myself ﾟ ヮﾟ
Sorry for the relatively short post guys...
I'll update in the next few days with an inspiration post!
Thanks for reading ♥
