DIY IKEA GOLD HACK | HOLLYWOOD REGENCY SHELF FOR UNDER $100

diy ikea hack_hollywood regency booksheld diy_diy hollywood regency bookshelf_gold hacks ikea
It's no shame that every homeowner has a different budget when it comes to furniture and interior design. But why should people with a smaller budget give up on a luxurious interior? The Hollywood regency style is probably the most luxurious and my personal favorite. The great thing: You don't have to spend thousands and thousands of dollars to achieve the Hollywood regency style for your home. You can easily make it yourself for a lot less money!

I've always dreamed of a gold shelf with glass shelfs- but to get those gold shelfs in a furniture store was way too expensive for me. I'm such a scrimper, I know! But why waste loads of money when you can save up thousands of dollars!?

HOW TO ACHIEVE THE HOLLYWOOD REGENCY STYLE FOR UNDER $100
Just like in my previous interior article, where I was showing you how to make an diy marble table, I found a lot of inspiration on Pinterest these last couple of weeks. This gold bookshelf was definitely my biggest DIY project so far- and also my favorite!

You only need two inexpensive things for this interior DIY: The Ikea VITTSJO shelving unit and gold spray paint. Thats it!

WHAT YOU NEED TO AVOID WHEN SPRAY PAINTING FURNITURE
I made the dumb mistake of spray painting every component itself of the shelving unit before I build up the shelf. This was definitely the most time consuming way to do it, so I recommend building the shelf BEFORE you spray paint it! That way you're done a lot faster and it's a lot easier.

HOW TO MAKE AN DIY MARBLE TABLE + IKEA GOLD HACK

diy ikea hacks_gold hack ikea_diy marble table ikea hack_marble table hack
I have to say, that I never was a fan of DIY's, just because I always found them too tricky and too time consuming. I simply wasn't patient enough for complex DIY's which is way I can't believe I'm really showing a DIY on my blog today. I always loved home decor and interior design but sadly, the most beautiful and classy furniture pieces are way too expensive. I was browsing around Pinterest and found a super easy DIY and Ikea hack which will cost you only a few Euros and is finished super fast! This is definitely a DIY for everyone who want's to save a lot of money, don't have a lot of time and isn't patient.

Actually there are hiding two Ikea hacks in this article: A DIY marble table + a super classy and chic gold hack. Marble is probably the most hyped and loved home trends at the moment. You'll see marble tables everywhere but why are they so expensive?! I would never be happy spending thousands of Euros for a real marble table. I know they look amazing, but no- too expensive!

HOW TO MAKE AN DIY MARBLE TABLE
Believe it or not but you only need three things for this marble table DIY: An inexpensive table, marble sticky paper (can be found at any construction market, DIY stores or all over the internet) and a towel.

Before you buy the marble sticky paper you need to measure out the table to make sure the marble paper will fit! Then you can easily stick the marble paper on the table- bit by bit- and always go after with the towel to make sure it really sticks on the table. Pressing the towel over the sticky paper will also avoid little bubbles if it's not evenly sticked on. Don't forget to go over the the edges of the table as well for a perfect marble look.

And there you have it! A super chic and expensive looking marble table. Made for only a few Euros.

IKEA GOLD HACK
I personally love love love furniture with gold details to it. But sadly, those pieces are always the most expensive ones. Well, not with this Ikea hack! 

What you'll need: A plain white table (with white table legs) + gold spray paint

Make sure to do this outside if you're having a garden or big balcony. Otherwise, cover up the floor with plastic foil to avoid having gold spray paint all over your floor! After that you can simply unscrew the table legs and spray them with the gold spray paint until you have a even finish. I suggest going for a shiny spray paint instead of a matte one, but that's totally up to you!

HOW I WENT FROM PLATINUM BLONDE TO LIGHT BROWN IN LESS THAN 4 HOURS

from platinum blonde to light brown_from blonde to brown in one day_blonde to light brown in one day_von platin blond auf hellbraun färben ohne friseur_von blond auf braun
I've been planning a hair related article for months and months now and today I'm finally at the point where I'm 100% happy and satisfied with my hair, so it definitely was about time for me to finally write this hair article. If you're following me on Instagram (@trendiquemagazine), then you'll know that I've been blonde for years and years now. I'm a natural blonde, but I do dyed my hair platinum blonde over the last few years. I was thinking about going from blonde to brown for quite some time now and I finally had the courage to do it- all by myself.
gucci inspired logo t shirt_from blonde to brown in less than a day_von blond auf braun

Disclaimer: This is what worked for me and my hair. Please keep in mind that we all have different hair and a different hair structure, so what worked for me might not work exactly the same for you. It always depends on your hair structure and the color your hair is.

People in my closest circle know, that I hate going to the hairdresser and I always have to cut and dye my hair all by myself, even though I am not a prof. hairdresser or colorist. I know that every hairdresser knows what he's doing, but I only trust myself when it comes to my hair. I've been cutting and dying my hair myself for years!

Disclaimer #2: Before you dye your hair by yourself you should really know your hair. My hair is not the thickest but also not the thinest and always have been super tough and strong when it comes to coloring it. If your hair is very thin and sensitive, please do not color it by yourself- speak to a prof. hairdresser and colorist first!

HOW I WENT FROM BLONDE TO BROWN IN LESS THAN A DAY

Going from platinum blonde to brown hair is definitely not the easiest thing to do and no hairdresser will do this step for you in one day. The risk is simply too high! If you're going from blonde to brown, you're risking to get a green tint in your hair and we definitely not want that. Using a hair dye with some gold or red in it will help to avoid a green tint. Avoid using ash- or natural brown shades.

When I started dying my hair from blonde to brown it was completely platinum blonde- however, I did had roots about a few centimeters, so I basically had two different hair colors to work with. This made the whole process even more risky for me, because I knew that my roots will end up darker than the rest of my hair.

WHAT HAIR DYE DID I USE?

I dyed my hair by myself SO many times and always used drugstore hair dye for it. I know they are some great professional hair dyes out there everyone can buy, but I find it a lot easier with the drugstore ones. They are already mixed together, which will save you some time. I used the Schwarzkopf Diadem silk color creme in the shade 717 light brown. If your hair is as long as mine, definitely get two packages otherwise it will not be enough for your whole hair! I also used a hair dyeing brush to distribute the hair dye evenly on the roots.

I started dyeing my hair not with freshly washed hair, because your hair is a lot more contestable when it's freshly washed.

I started with my roots and always sectioned thin layers to make sure every single hair is covered in hair dye. From here you'll have to work quite fast, otherwise your roots will be even darker than the rest of the hair because the exposure time will be unavoidable longer. After I dyed my roots, I brushed through them and sectioned my hair in a few thin sections to dye the lengths. When my whole hair was covered in hair dye I put a very thin and transparent plastic bag around it and let it sit for 45 minutes.

After the 45 minutes I washed it all out and used the care conditioner that came with the Diadem hair dye and let it influence for two to three minutes.

Voila! That's how fast I went from platinum blonde to light brown hair and I am more than happy with the outcome.

HOW I ACHIEVED THE NATURAL BALAYAGE 
I will do a separate article on how I achieved a natural balayage at home but for those of you who are wondering what drugstore product I used: Loreal Preference in shade 01 wild ombre.

WHERE TO FIND THE BEST GUCCI LOGO T-SHIRT DUPE | HOW TO SLAY ON A BUDGET

gucci logo tshirt_gucci inspired tee_gucci logo tee_gucci tshirt
We've all been seeing these fabulous but SUPER expensive Gucci logo T-shirts going around for the last few months but honestly... who's gonna invest in a $400 cotton tee?! Like seriously? This is just insane for a T-shirt and a total waste of money. However, these Gucci logo T-shirts are simply fabulous and can be worn with so many different outfits and styles, so I am glad that there are some high street brands that have designed some T-shirts that totally look a like this Gucci one. It's not a fake, because they are a bit different in the details but the style is basically the same.

With these Gucci T-shirt dupes you can definitely look like a million bucks without spending all your money on just a tee. I found my one in a shop I would've never expected to find something like this. It's a shop, I was always shopping when I was in high school and I honestly only went in there because I needed a pair of black leggings. Well, turned out I found the perfect Gucci logo inspired T-shirt in there: New Yorker. They are mostly based in Europe but you can also find this shop in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Azerbaijan and Russia.

HOTTEST FALL TREND 2017 - OVERSIZED HOODIES

hoodie trend_fall outfit inspiration_fall outfit ideas_oversized hoodie_jack russel terrier_terrier hund_jack russel hund
Since fall is now officially here we simply need to talk about some new fall trends for this season. I already talked about ripped knit sweaters in my previous article and today we are going to take a look at oversized hoodies. Oversized hoodie are super big right now and can bee seen on many different street-style looks during this fashion month. I have to say that I always loved hoodies, especially because they are just so comfortable and perfect for casual everyday looks. 

NO IDEA WHAT TO WEAR IN THE MORNING?

Simply throw on an oversized hoodie, some black leggings and you are good to go. Life will be so much easier in the mornings. While talking about oversized hoodies: If you're still on the hunt for the perfect hoodie you can check out Naketano at Fashion ID. They are offering a great and big range of hoodies for women and men in many different colors and styles. I personally always prefer black (especially for the dark fall and winter season, lol) but why not spice it up a bit and bring some color into the fall?! What about some hoodies in girly pastel colors?

HOW TO TRANSFORM YOUR DENIM SKIRT INTO FALL

denim skirt for fall_denim skirt looks_denim skirt outfits_fall streetstyle inspiration_black chunky knit sweater
Transforming our summer wardrobe into fall is probably the one thing most of us are trying to do right now. Since fall has officially arrived over here in the middle of Europe, we need to transform the wardrobe fast before winter kicks in. One of the biggest trends last summer was definitely ripped denim skirts, so we definitely don't want to miss them in fall, right?! Well, it only needs some small changes to wear our beloved denim skirt in fall as well. 

Since the temperatures tend to get some low for fall we definitely need some tights to wear skirts. I personally prefer black tights, because nude ones always gives me the feel of business or stewardess looks, if you know what I mean. Go for a pair of black tights which are not that thick, so you can still see a bit of your skin through.

Another staple to wear a denim skirt for fall: Ankle boots! Yes. It's finally ankle bootie season again and they are probably the best shoes to wear with a denim skirt for the cooler days. If you don't like ankle boots, you can still go with some over-the-knee boots which will make the whole look more elegant.

And last but definitely not the least: Chunky knit sweaters! They will keep you incredibly warm so you don't need a jacket + they totally bring the fall mood and the coziness back in the look. I went for size L to make it look more oversized and to roll up the sleeves for a more laid-back look.

FALL TREND ALERT: RIPPED KNIT SWEATERS

fall outfit inspiration_autumn outfits_what to wear for fall_chanel inspired bag_ripped knit sweater
Today we are going to get ready for fall. Fall has to be the best season when it comes to fashion. We all know that ripped jeans have been going around for some years now and they are still a big trend. For this fall though, we are changing up the game a bit. Ripped knit sweaters are the hottest fall trend right now! The trend with ripped (cotton) sweatshirts have been going around for some weeks- or even months but now you can even find ripped knit sweaters for a cozy and trendy fall season.

I have to admit, that I wasn't sure about this ripped knit trend first, but fell in love at second sight. It gives the whole chunky knit a whole other look. Something more interesting. Chunky knit sweaters in general are probably the best thing you can wear in fall. They are so versatile and go with so many different styles. In the oversized option they are even great as dresses!

LINGERIE AS OUTERWEAR - WOULD YOU WEAR IT? | HOW TO WEAR A LACE BODYSUIT

fendi iridia sunglasses_ripped high waisted shorts_lace bodysuit
As you can already tell from the title of this article, it's all about them lace bodysuits and lingerie as outerwear today. I have to admit, that when I bought this black lace bodysuit from the lingerie section about two to three years ago, I would've never pictured myself wearing it as an proper outfit. Well, time has passed since then and look where I am. Wearing a lingerie bodysuit with some ripped shorts and loving it. This whole lingerie and lace trend is really big this season. Not only talking about bodysuits, but also bralettes. I fell in love with this trend on social media, Instagram to be more precise. There have been so many beautiful detail pictures going around of beautiful lace bodysuits, combined to proper outfits, so I had to give it a try.

There are actually so many different ways you can wear the lingerie trend during the day. For a super casual yet stylish look you can easily pair it with some trendy sweatpants or joggers, combined with either a cool pair of sneakers or some slides. For a chic and elegant look you can dress it up with a cute skirt (maybe high waisted?) and some heels. And the best thing is: You can even transition this lingerie trend into the fall season! Simply pair it with a cozy chunky knit cardigan and a pair of high waisted skinny jeans.

FALL TREND ALERT: FUR SLIDES

fall trends 2017_fluffy slides_fluffy shoes_zara fluffy shoes_fall into fall
I don't exactly know how I feel about that, but fall is basically right around the corner and so I am doing my first fall related fashion trends article. Fall is definitely not my favorite season, at all. It always has something depressing to it... Don't you think so? Well, at least over here in the heart of Europe. When it comes to fashion though- fall is actually quite nice. The coolest fashion trends always come out in fall I think and so is our topic today: Fur slides.

You might have seen them all over social media and other fashion blogs but fur slides are one of the biggest trends right now and the trend will definitely continue into fall season as well. That's for sure! I personally think it's one of the cutest trends after a long time... it kind of looks like you're wearing some comfy home slippers when you're really rocking a big fashion trend, lol.

One of my favorite things about fur slides has to be the comfiness. I can't even tell you how many slides in general I own, but there are a lot. I'm definitely planning on getting some more fluffy slides for the fall season though. I always loved open shoes, so I'm more than happy that there is finally a ''sandal'' kind of shoe that you can wear in fall as well. Because of the fur (doesn't matter if it's real or faux fur) it's going to keep your feet a little bit warm and cozy which is simply perfect for fall weather.

DESIGN YOUR OWN (BALMAIN INSPIRED) BLAZER FROM SCRATCH WITH SUMISSURA

sumissura_balmain inspired blazer for less_balmain blazer for less_design a blazer from scratch
Girls, let's be honest! We all wanted to be a fashion designer at one point at our lives, didn't we?! Well, at least I did, but I'm sure some of you are with me! Since I'm not the best in doing sketches (I'm actually very bad at drawing in general- always have been and always will be), I knew that I can never become a real fashion designer because that's one of the most important things you just have to do when designing fashion. BUT, since technology is at a very pronounced level at the moment, there is a chance for all of us to be a real fashion designer! Yes, you heard right!

You can actually design your own blazer (or even a dress) totally from scratch at Sumissura and bring in all your personal preferences. Sounds great, huh? I can't even tell you how much fun this it to truly design and choose every little detail by yourself and make it your very own style. Of course, I took the chance and went for a Balmain inspired blazer which I always dreamed of and I have to say that I am more than happy with the outcome.

Oh- and by the way! When I say you can choose every little detail by yourself, I mean it!!! From the buttons to the cut and from the reverse to the pockets (and the list with details continues...)- you can choose and design it all by yourself. Another great thing is the sizing. Especially for those super skinny girls or very curvy women- you can type in your exact measurements, so the blazer will fit you like a glove!

My favorite little detail has to be the personalizing tool. It's a super tiny detail, but brings a lot of personality to the whole design and really makes it your own. As you can see on one of the following pictures, you can get your initials sewn in on the inside of the blazer, so nobody can say it's theirs because it has your initials on it! Quite nice, right?

Have I convinced you with this cool design tool? Then go ahead and design your own blazer from scratch now. And don't forget to have fun with it!

WHITE SUMMER PLAYSUIT & LV ALMA BB | HONEST SHEIN REVIEW

shein playsuit_white playsuit_shein review_louis vuitton alma bb
I feel like I should put a disclaimer on top of this article that this is not a sponsored article! I just thought about how thankful I would be for a honest review about some of the most hyped online shops at the moment. They are literally SO many china online shops that are super hyped right now because they are basically offering some really great designer ''inspired'' items such as shoes, bag and clothes. It can be quite tempting seeing all these items for a fraction of the price from the real designer pieces. But especially at these china online shops, it can be quite tricky if you never ordered from them before. Is it save to spend my money on there? Will the items arrive? Is it all a fake website because of the cheap prices? They are so many questions, right?!

Well, today I will clear all these questions for at least one of the cheap online shops: SheIn. Most of you might know this website under the name SheInside (they changed it a few months ago to SheIn). I've been knowing this website for the last few years no and already ordered quite a lot from them. I still remember my very first order which was a super pretty nude blouse with flower embroidery. I still have it to this day, but sadly it don't fit me anymore. The quality of most of the SheIn items is really great! BUT, they are a few ''black sheep'' in the major selection. One time I ordered a knit sweater in size M and it was basically the size for a 4 year old when it arrived. No chance of fitting me, at all. Quite frustrating because the return policy isn't the easiest.

After that order I did some orders with two bags which I absolutely LOVE and have been wearing constantly! They even went on a trip to Warsaw with me and survived! The most recent order I did on SheIn includes this white playsuit and the black and gold belt and I have to say that this belt is honestly the best thing ever. The leather is obviously faux but it feels soft as butter and fits perfectly. For only a few euros!

What I'm trying to say is that you really have to check the sizing before you order something from their clothing and maybe take one more close look at the pictures of the item (sometimes you can see some little issues on the items on the pictures, so I wouldn't order this item then). I think you can't have a 100% guarantee on this site, but if I look at all of my orders I did on SheIn over the past few years, I only got one- or maybe two ''black sheep'' under it- but a lot of other really great pieces I got a lot of wear out of already.

Another thins with these cheap china online shops is missing items in the parcel. I can only speak from my personal experience but I never had any items missing from my orders! Sometimes one order will be shipped out in two different parcels but I always got every item and always the right one- right color and right size) I ordered.
