DIY Frayed Denim

I recently fell in love with the frayed denim trend that has been featured heavily in street style pictures and on fashion blogs.

I found a few pairs online for $100+, and while that is not mega expensive for a pair of jeans, I felt that I could DIY a pair of jeans myself.

So I chose a pair of Men’s Regular Fit Jeans for a slightly baggier fit, cut them to the length that I wanted and ta-da! Frayed jeans for less than $20!

I also plan to give them a wash to loosen up the threads for more of a frayed look and sew a few cm’s above the fray to stop it unravelling too much!

Aekeno – The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift


I recently discovered these beautiful candles by Aekeno. I was drawn to the stylish, handpainted designs and the gorgeous sounding scents (which do smell divine!).


Kate generously gifted me these candles and I chose to have “#girlboss” painted on one as its a phase that motivates me to get shit done! “Fuck yeah” was featured on Aekeno. I currently have #girlboss burning, the Salted Caramel scent it amazing! It is actually making my mouth water a tiny bit… Kate also picked the Pomegranate scent, it is a lovely clean, sweet scent that would be perfect for a relaxing Sunday Morning. Mango & White Tea is the scent of the cute little travel candle, this scent is even lighter but still burns strong.


Kate can hand paint any word or phrase (maximum of 3 lines with 2-3 words on each line) on either a large or regular candle with your choice of the scents featured. Salted Caramel is my favourite so far! Each is packed in these cute little boxes, so they are the perfect choice for a special gift for anyone (Mother’s Day anyone?)


If you wish to purchase one of these beautiful candles, head over to Aekeno and have a chat to the lovely Kate.
