Refreshing Face Mists | Design Love Fest
One of my all time favourite beauty products is the Rosewater Balancing Mist by SA brand Jurlique. It feels so beautiful on your skin… which is good because it’s really pricey! DLF has a very similar mist which, although it doesn’t have the same ingredients, is still really similar to the Jurlique with a gorgeous blend of rosewater and witch hazel, and I can make quite a few bottles for the same price! There’s also recipes for two other sprays - Cool Down & Sleep Tight. Download the free labels and make your own!

Stamped Clay Bowls | Gathering Beauty
Aren’t these gorgeous?! And seriously, the process is so easy to follow, you’re going to have a stack of these bowls in no time. What to do with all your bowls? Keep them on your bedside table or near your front door for your keys/jewels/watch. Put it in your bathroom with some pretty soaps in it or just use them as decoration anywhere in your house. Plus this would make a really lovely gift - you should be able to get a few bowls from a packet of clay, meaning you’ve got a cheap gift that looks a million bucks!

3 Ice Cream Float Recipes | A Subtle Revelry
Where I come from, ice cream floats are called Spiders. I don’t know why. But as a child, Spiders were the height of fun - especially when you got to make one at Pizza Hut! I haven’t had a Spider in years, but these three recipes have got me craving them! I particularly love the idea of strawberry ice cream with lemonade. Perfect for those hot Summer days!

Easy Fabric Bookmark | Simple Simon & Company
I’m currently re-reading Witches Abroad by Terry Pratchett for the… sixth time?! You can tell I’ve read it a lot because of all the dog ears throughout to keep my place. That’s right, I’m a dog-earer-er. I’m ashamed to admit it. So I’m going to whip up one of these easy fabric bookmarks to keep my place from now on - and give my poor book a break!

Natural Bug Bite Balm | Henry Happened
I know it’s Summer up there in the North and with Summer comes the bugs. The small, noisy, biting bugs that drive you mad when you’re trying to share their great outdoors! I don’t really like bug spray, but I do think you need something to protect yourself. This natural bug balm is great because the whole family can use it and it’s not going to offend sensitive noses. All of the ingredients should be able to be purchased on eBay or soap suppliers online.

5 Minute Ponytails | Brit + Co
My hair has been put in a pony tail so much in my life that it now has a kink in it. Yep. Anyway, I love ponytails, especially as I can’t stand my hair in my face. But plain ponys can get boring, and for some reason scrunchies are no longer a mainstay in my house. I really love the pony on the far right with it’s ‘bubble’ segments. I’ll just need to purchase a few more elastics!
