CUSTOMIZED CAMERA BAG Today was 'Blue Monday' in the Netherlands. The most depressing day of the year. I don't know if it is world wide actually but just to let you know. Everybody here was planning some good time to beat this special Monday. So I did. The last time I am so busy I nearly have time for one of the things I love to do the most, DIY-ing! Really, I missed it so much. That's why today was the perfect day for some crafty time :). I have seen this idea from a friend from my sis in law and I loved it so much, I needed to do it by myself! It is really easy, but it's lots of work to do. But for today that doesn't matter! The longer it take the better you should say so. For this DIY I am talking about my camera-bag which I just gave a make-over. I have so many charms and beads I didn't use anymore, and they were perfect for this project! My bag was boring and also needed a little color so let's start! This DIY took almost the whole day but it was so worth it. I survived the Blue depressing Monday and ended with this limited edition, one and only customized camera bag!

Did you had the same in your country, the Blue Monday? If you do, what was your way to survive it? Anyway, I hope I can help you a little when you feel sad. Get up, find inspiration and work all day! That's the best way, and believe me if you see the result of a day hard work you will definitely be happy! When I have a day with nothing to do and feel bored or sad I do the same and it always works! And if you aren't so creative, there are so many more things to do. Find things you like. Clean your room, look in old magazines and make an inspiration mood-board, play a game with someone who feels the same, go to the bathroom and pamper yourself with a treatment and so on! So many things to survive the dark (not so cold) winter days. Oh one more, go to Floortjeloves and get inspired by this post hahaha. Well about this post, beside that I am wearing my DIY camera bag I also wear some of my new items which I have for a while but didn't show you yet (shame shame..). Of course I am talking about these amazing knee-boots! Really, since I have these I can't get enough of them. They're sexy, classic and chic. Perfect for a daily outfit or a night out! Need to share my other outfits with them soon!
Okay guys, I'll end my day in a warm bath and start pampering myself. Hope you liked this post and that the tips may help you out! :)
