Heyyya. Long time no see. Although – I can’t actually see you guys, but I think you know what I mean! I’m soooo sorry I haven’t posted for ages but kinda been caught up and busy in other stuff (holiday, school and Instagramming…) but YES I know thats not a good enough reason. It been almost a month since I last posted, I mean can you believe that?  Righty ho, on with the show. This post is about my bag which I ordered from Amazon not so long ago, and have fallen completly head-over-heels in love with it. If you love it as much as me, then (obvs) click on the ‘CLICK HERE’ button below and it’ll take you straight to amazon. Lotsa love xxx

So I got this bag about 2 weeks back and was super super pleased with it. Its the perfect size to fit all my stuff in it (and in my case that quite a lot!!) – as well as a load of random crap I usually carry the following in my bag: mascara, lipgloss, mirror, phone, magazine, 2 notebooks, 2 pens (and no, I have no idea why I have to have to of each!), tissues, earphones, purse, hairbrush, hand cream, hand sanitizer, bobby pins, Kleenex shine absorbing sheets, face wipes, body spray, perfume, random bits of jewellery and a hec of a lot of receipts! So a bag can carry all that then its bound to be a winner/all-rounder/bag-that-you’ll-use-until-it-breaks. It also goes with literally everything in my wardrobe – which is why I opted for the classic brown colour because although it might be boring – it’ll never date. The bag is a really nice style and personally I think it looks more expensive than others for this reason. It have a detachable strap and you can change the length of it too. And whats more it comes in avariety of different colours – yayy! So just hit that green button…

DIY: Mini Playing Card Brooch

Brooch pic

Heylooo everyone!! So today, I’m extremes (ok, I made that up) excited to present my very first diy (and its my second post – yay!). I actually made this brooch last year but I just thought I’d share it with you lovely people because I was quite proud out it. It’s really simple to make and you’re  guaranteed to get tons of compliments.

You Will Need:

  • 6 Mini Playing Cards 
  • Scissors
  • Sticky-back plastic – this is the stuff that peeps use to cover notebooks/books in
  • All-purpose glue
  • Brooch Backs
  • Glue Gun

no.1

1) Take your six cards and laythem face down onto a clean, dry surface. Glue one card to the back of the other and leave to dry. This will mean that you will have 3 stronger playing cards.

no.3 - with numbers

2) Once all the cards are dry, glue down one side of two of the cards. Glue no. 1 down the side of no.2 and then glue no.2 down the side of no.3. It does make sense, trust me!

no.4

3) When, you have left them to dry they will look like this. Well, at least I hope they do… Anyway now for the fun part. Place your cards onto the sticky-back and measure out small square. Cover one side of the cards with the sticky -back sheet, smoothing out creases as you go – you could use a ruler to do this as it works really well. Do the same on the other side making, sure you don’t leave any gaps where the plastic hasn’t reached. Now, neatly cut around your cards to get rid of the excess.

no.5

4) Yay! Almost done! Finally, take a glue gun (or you can use your all purpose glue if its strong enough) and attach the brooch to the back – make sure its the right way up!!

no.6

 5) Ta da!! That wasn’t so bad was it? Now you know how to make it, you can make tons of them. Double yay!
