DIY Blogs We Love: A Pair & A Spare

A Pair & A Spare has fast become one of the most successful DIY blogs to date, and it can all be attributed to the creative genius of Geneva, the brains behind the operation.

The blog is a day to day chronicle of Geneva’s addiction to DIY projects which range from home decoration to fashion and everything in between. Originally from Brisbane, Geneva now lives in Hong Kong and commands a loyal blog following from all around the globe.

The ethos behind the blog is that Geneva believes in a sustainable approach to fashion, in a world where fast fashion has become mainstream and huge companies have taken the individuality out of shopping your wardrobe.

Geneva has a host of accomplishments under her belt and most recently has begun a  weekly DIY tutorial over at Harper’s BAZAAR Australia.

Stay tuned for a very special guest post from the girl herself this month!

We highly recommend that you check out Geneva’s blog here but be warned, it is highly addictive!
