DIY: Studded Phone Case

One of the best things about eBay, a site I consider to be one of my favourite online shopping destinations, is that you can buy absolutely anything and everything for usually dirt cheap prices (Thanks Hong Kong and China sellers!).

When I was browsing through, I came across these studs. Now, we all know that studs are in and you can see them on so many items from tops to shorts to bags and of course phone cases.

So I purchased myself a pack of 100 studs for $1. I didn’t know what I’d do with it, but I knew they’d come of use one day. A couple months later, just as my pack of studs were about to get their second layer of dust, I came across an army green silicone case for $1. And so my first Do-It-Yourself project since I was 12 began. I was going to make a studded cross phone case.

It was a success, so I thought I’d share this fun and easy project with all of you!

Items you need:

  • Plain phone case (Can be hard plastic or silicone found in eBay or stores)
  • Studs (Can be purchased online here for only $1.34 with free shipping!)
  • Super glue (I used the Krazy Glue brand)
  • Tweezers (optional)


1. The first thing is to lay out your design, I chose to go with a cross and small pyramid at the corner, but the possibilities are endless!

Here are some sample designs I found online:

2. Then start to glue your design! I recommend putting the glue directly on the case, and make sure to press and hold your stud in place for at least 30 seconds. The tweezers are there to help you hold and place the studs without risking crazy glue on your fingers!

Voila! You’re done! Let your creation dry for a couple of hours, and then you can proudly say “Thanks I made it myself” when people compliment your case! ;)

Online finds: Studs, spikes and skulls

My addiction for online shopping is back.

But I am using every ounce of willpower I have to resist from buying every single (oh-so-cute and oh-so-cheap) item I find while searching the depths of online stores.
Recently, I’ve had a slight obssession with accesories, from rings to scarves, to headbands,  and now, mostly bracelets.

So instead of continuously typing in my PayPal password and checking out items from my shopping cart, I thought I’d put my fingers and keyboard to better use–to post an awesome wish list on this blog! We all know the three “S” are in: studs, spikes and skulls. So here are a couple pieces in this category that you’re sure to love.

1. ASOS Stud Collar ($24.16,
This would look awesome over a plain tee or under a pullover sweater. There’s just so many possibilities with this detachable collar!








2. Alva Stud Sneaker by Jeffrey Campbell ($250.77,
While the price is way out of reach for a struggling college student like myself, there’s no denying that these shoes are gorgeous.














3. Studs Denim Shorts ($42.90,
They’re high waisted, simple and don’t overdo on the studs, which would look great with a crop top or baggy shirt tucked in!









1. Spiked Headband ($12.99,









2. ASOS Pyramid Spike and Stone Bracelet Pack, ($21.47,
This is one item I’m guilty of already having purchased. The rose gold colour is rare to come across, and it goes perfect with a MK watch I already own. Alone or layered with other bracelets, it’s super cute!






3. Aggressive Ring ($134.00,
This ring is fierce and glamourous, and a great way to protect yourself (aha, just kidding…or maybe not).








1. Alexander McQueen Skull Scarf ($295.00,
This is something that is on the top of my wish list. Such a must-have for the season, and with so many colours, there’s bound to be one that’ll catch your eye.










2. Petite Skull Print Leggings ($30.00,











3. ASOS Skull Stretch Bracelet ($14.32,
The gold-tone skull on this black bracelet makes this such a unique piece!


The Online Shopping Addiction

This month most of my shopping was done online.
You see, online shopping can be great. There are no lines to stand in, no racks to go through, no sizes to search for, and you don’t have to walk a marathon just to get from one store to another.
But the abundance of pros make this style of shopping extremely addictive.

Bored in class? Online shop.
Bored on the bus? Online shop.
Bored at the doctor’s office? Online shop.
Bored at work? (Sneakily) online shop.

This pattern can lead to some very scary numbers on your credit card.
Even if you’re simply buying a cheap iPhone case on eBay like me for $3. It adds up. Because soon you’ll find an even cuter case for $5. But then you find that one case you’ve always wanted for $8. Which of course you have to get in every single colour–all 6 of them, that is. And then you find yourself with 8 iPhone cases, but no iPhone.

Yes, that happened to me.

It’s hard to resist buying items online, especially once you discover that has free shipping worldwide. all. the. time.

Stay tuned for my end of the month shopping haul, where I’ll be posting pictures of all the items I bought so easily with the click of a button.
