7. Who are some of your favorite bloggers?
I've come across soooo many cool blogs, and then others who have a crappy blog with a post saying "test" or "hi, this is my first blog post!!!" i hate that....Now i'm getting side tracked, my favorite blogs are 'Copy that, Copy cat', 'Dainty Sprinkles' and 'style lullaby'

DIY Baby pins

So i had these really cut glass beads that I had for months and I never got to use. I didn't know what I could make with them; earrings would be too heavy with them, I didn't have anything handy to make bracelets/necklaces with. So in the end I was stuck with this... baby pins.
It was very trick to unwind the pin and then wind it back, as you can see it didn't wind back the way it originally was. I also changed the colour of the pin with sharpie markers :P. 
This only took me 5 minutes to make one!, you should try it!!

My Blog isn't letting me put a title on this? So here it is....

I <3 drugstores tag

Olivia tagged me to do this tag I'm posting now !
 and I'd better get started !

1. What is your favorite drugstore makeup brand ?
well...i normally buy different bits and pieces from each brand, but my favorite would be....Rimmel london and essence for nail polishes they are soo cheap and there are soo many colours!

2. What are your favorite face, cheek and lip products ?
My favourite lip product is vaseline i cant live without it, 
Favourite face product would be Rimmel london mattefying powder, it just makes my face feel brighter!  And I don't use much cheeks stuff, it would normally be what ever i have, which right now is the colour workshop.

3. Least favorite product ?
essence mattefying powder, i tried it one time because i needed to get one really quick and cheap one, it was sooooo orange i should have known, never making that mistake ever again.

4. What is the best makeup bargain ?
Essence Colour & Go nail polish!! You can get them in soo many colours and they are soo cheap!

5. What is your favorite underdog product ? (Something you love that often gets overlooked ?)
I dont know of any really..... but my friend uses products from Bare Minerals? if that counts, apparently they're really good for your skin too and are not overpriced, i've never heard of them. They're in Dundrum so i'll take a look next time.

6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?
 They are all the same price really unless its Clarins or Estee Lauder but anyway i saw this really pretty lip product from L'oreal paris, the caresse in blushing sequine it was like €12 , way too much for 1 little lipstick and I really wanted it :(.

7. Show your best drugstore dupe(s)!!
I haven't a clue what this is, but reading it from the other blogs i don't know of any.

8. Drugstore product that isn't worth the hype?
I don't really like max factor false lash effect mascara or maybelline volume express colossal "cat eyes" or any of them kind of things,
 I think they're all over priced and you can easily get the same effect of them from any mascara or fake lashes :L

That's my answers for this tag, I tag you all and if you want to post this tag to your blog, YouTube, etc. here's the questions

1. What is your favorite drugstore makeup brand?
2. What are your favorite face, cheek and lip products?
3. Least favorite product?
4. What is the best makeup bargain?
5. What is your favorite underdog product? (Something you love that often gets overlooked?)
6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?
7. Show your best drugstore dupe(s)!!
8. Drugstore product that isn't worth the hype?

Hope you enjoyed reading this !

The Hair bow Tutorial

 1. sew a rectangle of 7cm x 4cm BUT leave a small opening

 2. Trim the edges

 3. Turn the bow the right way round and sew up the hole.

4. Now with a single thread gather it in together to create the bow.

5. Sew a long strip of material to wrap around the bow and 
using a glue gun stick it to the bow.

6. Now you can either use a glue gun to stick on beads or sew them.

7. With a small square of felt slide a clip on and use the glue gun to stick it to the bow, with for it to try and you are ready to go! Enjoy!! :)

Punk rock points!

I did these nails the other day and i love them.  They are so simple to do and there are thousand of different ways to rock it!

All you have to do is...
1. paint the nails any colour you want,
2. A 1/3 down from the nail do a small dot any colour you want for the point and then 2 more dots 2/3 down from the top of the nail at each edge,
3. Now follow the edge of the nail from one dot to the other, and from there  to the top point, do the same with the other point.
4. Now fill in the point with the colour you want.
5. You can finish it there with a top coat or you can outline the point like i did or any other design you can think of and top coat.
