Bit Square Has Moved!! Domain name change.

Bit Square has moved
New Address:

www.bitsquareblog.com

Sorry to do this to all and hopefully this will be the only change I make!
I feel I've now proven to myself that I can maintain and love writing a blog. As even I struggle to remember my current domain name I feel it's necessary to change. 

I only purchased this domain name yesterday and have basically just copied and pasted my entire blog over. I've spent the morning tweaking links so that they all should work now. I still haven't worked out how to transfer the domain name on bloglovin'. I have also seemed to have lost all your lovely comments! For some reason only my comments have transferred at this stage. Does anyone know anything about this?

Please let me know if anything isn't working! I'll keep this domain open in the mean time so you can contact me here. I won't be publishing any more posts on this site though.

I hope to set up to sell jewellery online within the month.


Find me here. Find PSY here modelling awesome handbags.

See you there!

What I Wore Wednesday on a Friday (but actually What I Wore Friday)

I'm going to try to participate in the What I Wore Wednesday linkup as much as I can. Today is Friday but I could have worn this Wednesday right? Or could I????

 

It was such a nice day. I thought I'd have breakfast outside.


Just casual. Nothing fancy.



Nice Stripes

Thanks. I'm wearing the new studs I made too.

An interactive capsule wardrobe today. I've selected some of my favourite new items from Polyvore here that hopefully work fairly well together. Use the arrows to scroll through. There should be about 12 items per carousel. Click on any of the items for it's website and details. I'm not sure if these are all for sale.


Take a screenshot if you come up with some great combos!
PC - Alt + PrintScreen (PrtScn) (should be saved to clipboard)
Mac - Command + Shift + 4 (should be saved to desktop)


Click the arrows on the right to start






Here are a few I came up with.


Have fun!

Refashion of the Week - Dream Catcher Necklace x2


50% of jewellery at Just Jeans this week. A good time for a bargain.  A good time for a refashion.


I originally bought just one of these necklaces to wear as a necklace. I thought it was a fun design and absolutely loved the charm pieces it had on it. When I tried wearing it though it just looked weird on me. I knew it wasn't right. I was about to take it back to the shop when inspiration struck - Buy another necklace - Refashion of the Week.


Breaking up the first necklace:



Here is what I made:



1. A simple earring. There was an extra join at the bottom of this piece that I cut off with jewellery pliers. (I talk more about this in a previous refashion here).
2. Another simple one. Just put this on the hook.
3. For this one I incorporated a couple of beads to make a simple drop earring.
4.  I used one of the smaller end pieces to make a drop stud. (I did a DIY on how to make studs here).
5. These are my absolute favourite ones here! I'm going to love wearing these! I had some tassels left over from a previous refashion that were waiting for the right bead to finish - and I found it! Yay! I put these on clip-on findings as they are quite long. ( I talk about this here)
6. These ones came straight from the necklace. 
7. I really liked these black pieces and they ended up going perfectly with these flat white beads I had. TIP: I put a little glue on the head pins to stop the white beads from moving about.
8. I'm not sure if I'll wear this as a necklace yet. I think some basic black beads could look really good on it (I don't have enough to try it out for you here at the moment sorry) but I quite like it simplified as it is. I hope to turn one of these into a bag clasp. if I do the pic will be going here.

The necklaces were $12 each.

Leftovers:


Extra:

I found these black discs in my refashioning box today - some leftovers from a previous refashion (I think it was from a necklace as well) that I'd completely overlooked! I'm going to love these as earrings now.
