DIY Inspo


I'm back with another post full of pretty Pinterest pictures! I love the huge array of DIY Projects you can find on Pinterest. There are some amazing ideas which actually look realistic! So I put together a few of my faves...

I'm determined to have a drawer like image 6 when I move house. I love the wire basket and the bright + bold labelling! That's an image from one of my absolute favourite blogs, A Beautiful Mess. The marbled jewellery holders also look ridiculously easy to make, but I love the result!

There's also a few birthday present ideas on here... The fudge is from my favourite cooking website/ Youtube channel - SortedFood. The boys are hilarious, but the recipes always turn out amazing too! I made this peanut butter fudge for my dad a couple of Christmases ago, and it was SO good! They also have an amazing homemade pizza recipe (the best pizzas) and chocolate fondant recipe - chocolate fondants are known for being difficult, so when I made them for my whole family and they turned out perfectly, I was extremely chuffed. 
My mum loves foxes, and I think she would love the patchwork cushion. However, although I may have an A* GCSE in textiles, I'm not sure how well this would turn out... we'll see! 
And finally my brother is away travelling at the moment (he went in January and is going for 18 months!), so I thought the birthday banner in a box would be a really thoughtful present to send over to him in Australia! Hopefully, I won't forget to make it.

I also love the idea of the daily calendar you write on each year, but I think mine could be a bit boring (2014: school, 2015: school, 2016: school...)!

Have you ever tried any DIY projects from Pinterest?
I'd love to hear about them! :)

What's in my Travel Makeup Bag?


Today I thought I'd give you all a little glimpse into my 'travel' makeup bag! This isn't for holidays, but more for touch ups - although the only time I really take much out with me is when I'm going out after work on a Saturday! I try to take as many multi-use products as I can in order to save space.

February Beauty Faves


Oops, I've kind of been a bit MIA in the blogosphere over the past couple of weeks. I've possibly had some of the most emotionally draining few weeks of my life (so far), but I've really been missing my blog! As it was the beginning of March yesterday - how I don't know - I thought I would share some of the things I've been loving recently. I've also tried something new in this post! You may notice on the pictures below that they have writing on... This is my own writing! I wrote onto acetate, scanned it onto my laptop, faffed around for a long time and overlayed them onto my photographs - tell me what you think in the comments! I personally love this more personal touch. The background to my photos is also part of my art project!

Winding Down


I'm lucky when it comes to sleeping.. I sleep like a baby! However, I know a lot of people are no where near as lucky, so today I thought I'd share my top tips for winding down at night!

10 Things To Do These Holidays


For all of us bloggers still at school, today marks the end of another long half-term (well at least around my area!). I think I speak for everyone when I say it has been very tiring - I could sleep for a week! However, I won't, because unfortunately it's only a week off. I'm going to be a very busy bee these holidays, but for those of you without many plans, here are a few ideas...

All the Neutrals


Hello! I am finally writing an OOTD post on my blog! I was hoping to get some really nice photographs of this outfit, however, time constraints means they are a bit hit-and-miss! I have however managed to show the majority of my outfit off...

Bedroom Inspo


A quick post from me today! If you didn't already guess, I absolutely LOVE interior design - I would love to do be able to do someone's house up for them (on an unlimited budget, of course). Over the next couple of months, I'll have a few bedrooms to do up - and forgetting the circumstances it's under, I can't wait! I have so many ideas, I'll definitely be keeping the blog updated on the process! The photo of Kate Moss I've included has to be one of my absolute favourites of her's too - I need a print of that!
