Review: Tropic Organic Elixir Oil

Disclaimer: Items provided for review. Anything made in the UK, especially beauty products, is practically an endagered species so when Tropic Skincare wrote to me asking if I wanted to review this product I very enthusiastically said yes, and…I’ll admit it. The bottle design was also a huge factor for me. I mean look at it! It’s…

DIY: Tea Lights Tray

I was going to make this into a DIY tutorial for Klairedelysdotcom but the actual idea and process of this is so simple it made a lot more sense to just have it as a blog post. Best way to hide scratches? Make more of them! When I first bought this tray from a little…

Seven Deadly Sins: Wrath Nails

I was hoping by this point to have at least one of my Seven Deadly Sins looks up. But thanks to an incredibly slow postal service several props still haven’t arrived, which is incredibly annoying given I ordered all the props weeks in advance.  Wrath: love of justice perverted to revenge and spite My idea for these was…

The Best Suncream Ever?

(Disclaimer: The SPF 10 was sent to me by MelanSol) I’m no good with the sun, as much as I love it, and as rare as it is to get any sun in England, I got my dad’s skin instead of my mums and my skin just does not agree with it, I always get burnt…

Review: Lush Sex Bomb

DIY: Horns

Before I get the inevitable question: “erm…why would anyone want horns” in my defence I’d like to say that there are actually a lot of times you can wear horns (other than late at night in a dark corner to scare a family member). I will be using these for one of the Seven Deadly…

The Only Fashion Book I’ll Ever Need

I’m going to start this post of with just admiting, I generally can’t stand fashion. I don’t like how fickle, characterless and disposable it is. When I buy something I like to last and I’d much rather spend an extra couple of pounds (or snap up a charity shop bargain) on a no-name brand which is…

TAD: Photography Day 1 | Blossoms

TAD: The Art Diaries Today’s post is going to be a little bit picture heavy, but then again that’s kind of the point with this series. So far this year I’m quite pleased with how much more art work I’ve managed to do, but photography is one medium I’ve not been able to experiment much…

Review: Kringle Candles Gift Sets (Lilac and Mango)

Disclaimer: Items provide for review. It’s not surprising, given the sheer number of DIY tutorials I have done using Candle Jars that I have a scented candle obsession. Recently Kringle wrote to me asking if I was interested in trying out any of their candles, which as you can imagine, I quite happily said yes…
