Updates & announcements for diywithelli's blog

Hello my friends,

How are you doing? It's been a while since I posted my last blogpost. I have been online and offline for quite a while now and I want to make some things clear now. For this announcement I have some good and bad news for you.

First of all the bad news, I am very sorry to say this, but I am officially quiting my blog, diywithelli. Yes, you're reading that right :(. *R.I.P. diywithelli*. Even though I've had such an amazing experience running this blog and received many sweet and lovely comments from you guys, I still am quiting my blogging life. I don't think that it's a big surprise that I'm quiting this blog, because in the meantime you've probably already suspected that I'm not quite active here on this blog. But the sad point is that I won't be posting anything here anymore.

For the past few months I just didn't really feel like blogging anymore. These past two years I had been super busy and I couldn't just find the motivation and energy to keep this blog alive and create new content here on my blog. I basically lost my passion for blogging throughout the year. And also I lost my balance in my blogging life and my actual life. It's kind of weird to announce this after two years since my last blogpost, but there is just one reason that I'm back here on this blog for the very last time.

The good news is that I will continue my 'internet life' on youtube! Yaaaaay! I'm super excited to announce this!! Sharing my passion for fashion on the internet has always been there for me. I really missed being online on the internet, so now after two years deciding what I want to do with life I came up with a brand new idea! And that is that I want to continue this through youtube!

So I've been brainstorming the last few weeks what I wanted to post on youtube and on what name I want to continue. I couldn't just continue with my old blog name 'diywithelli', because then people would only expect DIY projects on my channel, which isn't a bad idea, but DIY projects takes lots of time, effort and sometimes money. So I came up with this new new called: Clothesnbits! I wanted something easy to remember and something that represents my channel. I mainly want to focus on fashion and styling on my channel. Besides that I also want to post other things such as DIY's or personal things. So I combined 'clothes' and 'bits' together. Yaaay!

Before I will officially quit this blog, I want to say a few more things. First of all, thank you so much for reading and following my blog these past few years. I really appreciate every single comment, follower and reader on my blog. I remembered when I started this blog in 2012 where I started with 0 followers. Till now I created a sort of network that was really big for me (I never received so many lovely comments and followers before). Without you it couldn't happen. So I want to thank you for supporting me. I appreciate every single reader and visitor on my blog <3

So for now, goodbye and hopefully see you there on my new youtube channel.
Let's begin a new journey.

Hey guys!
How are you doing? Here's another DIY for you. Today I will show you how to make a backbone cut-out shirt and it's really easy and fun to do. So if you have any oversized tee that you don't use or wear anymore then change your tee into a new piece. I hope you'll like this tutorial. Enjoy.

Hi guys!
Some of you have been wondering/asking about how I apply my everyday eyeliner. Since I don't know how to explain that precisely I decided to make a video about it. I'm obviously not a makeup artist or professional and I really don't know how to apply makeup correctly, just to let you know. This is my first ever make up tutorial, so I hope you will like it. Thank you guys for the comments and thank you so much for the support :) Enjoy the video.

Hey guys!
What's up y'all? Today I will share you my experiences and the processes that I've gone through when I was bleaching and dyeing my hair silver lilac (note: I wrote this tutorial a couple weeks ago when I had silver lilac hair. My hair is now light brown, but I didn't want to delete this blog post, so I thought let's finish this and post it for you guish). I've been wanting this haircolour for ages, but I never knew how to achieve this and I also wasn't quite sure if it would be ever possible to get this colour since my hair is quite dark (naturally). I also didn't want to damage my hair that much, since I've been dyeing my hair for quite a few times already, but I thought you know what.. yolo, let's just do it... well, not exactly like that, but I've been thinking waaaay too long about it and I've done so many researches on the internet in the past couple months and now I've finally made my decision. I don't have any regrets and I'm really happy with the results. And since I don't want to end up with a 'what-if' feeling, I just went for it! So, if you're interesting in getting silver lilac hair then keep on reading :)

PS: I'm not a proffesional hairdresser or something like that, I just want to share my experiences.

How are you doing guys? Today I'm doing a Primark haul for y'all! I went to Primark yesterday and I bought some pretty nice items there. There was also a lot of sale, so that was really nice!

Hey there,
Welcome back on my blog. It's been a while since I posted a new DIY for you guys. Today I will show you how to make a turban headband or tulband whatever headband. For this DIY I'm using a gold/mustard yellow velvet fabric and it's just a really nice color. The fabric is also stretchable so that's perfect. The fabric was like 2 euro's for 1 meter, so that's really cheap!

Anyway, let's just start the DIY. Enjoy.

Hey there!
Happy new year guys! I know it's a little bit too late, but whatever. Long time no blogging.. I've missed it so much. And I've missed you guys too of course. I'm glad to be back!

(btw she and her friend are running an online vintage webshop called ''Splitternakt''. If you're interested please visit their webshop over here. They have some really nice stuff! go check it out!<3)
