Before we get to business, help me acknowledge the glow which has been conveyed upon me.

Trending last year, around this time were puffs accessories – Puff shoes, puff bags, some puff statement jewelry and even cloths that have puffs on them as designs. They were all over the runways of NYFW, Lagos fashion week and in magazines we love to read like Vogue and ELLE magazine. So as expected, the prices of these accessories had shot up to a pretty penny.
But as much as we would love to follow all the trends and be on top of our style game, we also need to bear in mind that living within your budget is key.
Why not make a puff statement piece yourself?! That was just an idea, but after seeing how easy it really was as a DIY from Drapedinbasics.com ( a blog owned by the lovely Ifoma Mandi on instagram) I started gathering my bits and bobs.
To start with, you would need basically 3 items:
•A ‘Plane Jane’ earring of your choice
•Puffs ( a million of them if you like)
Firstly, make sure your earring is clean by whipping it off with some alcohol.
Then apply your glue to we’re you want your puffs to be. I used 2 puffs. One in the front and one on the back to make my earring puff not too big and not too small. But just enough finesse for me.
I left it to dry for about 30 minuets and then it was done. See the final look.
Would you try out this DIY? Please tag me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram if you do. I would be a proud Maame.
