So today I decided to film this DIY instead of just using pictures, because I thought it was easier to understand that way. I hope you enjoy this and leave a comment down below if you have any suggestions for improvements.

A Mason Jar full of Summer
Everybody needs water and so therefore everyone drinks it. But, we can forget or lets face it, simply just prefer the taste of a Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino….
They are so good though….
But what if you added some fruity flavour and gorgeous colour to your water? You’d so drink more water!!! Just like this Fiji water, which looks so cute and pretty it makes you wanna drink more water… It’s all just in our heads…
let’s get started…..
It’s super easy. All you need is:
some bottled water or tap water if you like
some fresh fruit of your choice ( I chose strawberries, blueberries, oranges, limes, lemons and cucumber)
Simply cut up your fruit into small chunks, so that you don’t have a huge mouthful when you take a sip of water. Pour some water into a mason jar and then add some ice cubes. Pop in any fruit combination that you like into each mason jar. For even more flavour, squeeze the juice of half a lemon or lime and add this to your water.
Voila! Super easy, cute, healthy and yummy drinks.
Enjoy and Good Luck. xx
DIY COLOURFUL SNEAKERS
Right now Penneys (or Primark ) have these white sneakers for about 3 euro and they also have them in various colours. I’ve had my ones for a while, so they ended getting quite dirty. I saw tribal print ones in Topshop a while back, but they didn’t have them in my size. i was a bit upset as I really liked them. I was extremely excited when I saw this on Instagram the other day and just had to share it. It’s so easy to do and I immediately tried it out at home. You can draw on any print that you like. I did mine like the one in the picture above.
All you need is a pair of sneakers, preferably white and some fabric markers. You could use normal sharpie markers, but you will run the risk of having the colours bleed and fade. You could also use fabric paint for the design, but the consistency of that would be a lot thicker and take much longer to dry. But it is completely up to you. You can design them however you wish to create your own unique and funky sneakers.
For the print above, it’s easiest to cut your desired design onto paper(such as zig-zags) and then just trace it. repeat with a different colour and keep this going. ( Look at the picture below )
It also makes it easier if you take the shoelaces out before attempting your design, to ensure none of the colour goes on them. Unless you want them to be colourful.. 🙂 It’s all up to you…. So get creative and design your own shoes!!!!
Here are some other design ideas.
These shoes are not white, so not all colours will be opaque on it. With brown shoes, black is the best colour to go with, as it will be seen quite clearly. Here, the laces have also been cutified with a tribal design.
Enjoy and Good luck. xoxo
Summer is here, which means we can all try out new nail designs with pretty pastel colours and bright neon ones, to see what we like best. So obviously there is nothing worse than getting out your fave bottle of nail polish and finding it to be a sticky and goopy consistency. Even worse is when it starts to chip only a few hours later.
This happens all the time, so I thought I would share some easy, yet effective ways to make your nail polish last longer.
1) Don’t store your nail polishes in a random box or on your shelves. By doing so the bottles will not be stored upright and the lacquer will move around the bottle. This will cause air bubbles to appear in the lacquer and thus create the thick and sticky consistency, which we so don’t want.
2) Do apply a base coat and top coat after using the nail colour of your choice. The base coat will help protect your nail and create a smooth surface for your nail colour to be applied to. The top coat will seal in the colour or the design and will prevent chipping, or at least make the chipping process take some extra time. 🙂
3) Don’t use nail polish remover to thin your nail polish. Many nail varnish removers actually contain acetone that can break down the formula of your lacquer and this ruins it.
4) Do use thinner drops, as they are specifically made to thin your nail polish and really do thin the formula.
5) Don’t shake your nail polish to loosen the formula. This is just like the like the first point, where air bubbles will form. Just roll the bottle in the palm of your hands to warm up the polish.
6) As an extra added tip… Don’t apply the nail polish to your cuticles. Try to keep the polish a bit away from the cuticles, to keep them healthy.
