DIY: Scented/Tinted Bath Salts

It’s simple but I absolutely love my bath salts and thought I would show you how I like to make them a little more fun to use. Two things I have to point out: Be careful with essential oils! Just because it’s natural does not mean you can’t have a reaction to some of them….

DIY: Owl Jar

This little chap has been nicknamed Mamá Búho by my sister because it reminded her of a slightly grumpier version of the owl from The Fox and the Hound. Personally it reminds me more of the owl from Bambi a little more but Mamá Búho sounds nicer so I’m going with that. I finally got a replacement…

DIY Beauty: Avomask

I think avocado is one of those ingredients that a lot of people think of when facemasks are mentioned but aren’t used nearly enough. They are so increadible for your skin! Personally I can find it a bit of a moisture overload (so it’s perfect for dry/very dry skin) so I like to mix it…

DIY: Shell Jar

This one is easily my favorite of my recent DIY tutorials! :D I currently have it in the bathroom to hold cotton balls and I love it! Of course you don’t have to use shells. If you have any beads from broken jewellery or some pretty stones you could use those instead. What I used:…

DIY: Candle Holder

I’m quite pleased I managed to find a way to use the lids of my candle jar. Although I’ve managed to use the majority of my used candle jars I haven’t found a use for all the lids yet since most of the jars are used to hold things like brushes and pencils. I know…

Giveaway Haul: More Illamasqua!

It’s quite funny how I never really use any Illamasqua products in my videos but I always seem to be giving away their products in my videos. I was thinking at some point to do ‘separate’ videos where I re-created the illamasqua looks using their products. I’ve picked a selection of bright and wearable shades…
