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!

Ultimate Fully Loaded Nachos | Serious Eats
There isn’t really anything I love to eat more than nachos! The sour cream, the chilli, the guacamole, the corn chips…and all those extra crunchy, spicy, delicious tidbits that make great nachos! This is a fantastic recipe and has all the good things that you like plus some tips on perfecting your chip to topping ratio (which we all know is quite important!)

Back from sick leave…

Hi All,

I’m sorry for my absence, I’ve been laid up with a horrible cold! I’m sorry I couldn’t finish off my Father’s Day round up, but I’ll post the rest of the DIYs I found today for those of you who would still like to see them!

I will be ‘back to normal’ soon, when I feel like I can handle sitting at a computer for more than five minutes!

I hope y’all are feeling well and happy, or at least on the way there

STYLISH DADS

Whether your dad is all about the hair products or fun ties, each dad is stylish in his own special way! I’ve collected some of my favourite DIYs for all those stylish Dad’s for their special day. The most intriguing for me is the Whiskey Flavoured Toothpicks, which are inspired by these very expensive ones! If you’re dad likes whiskey they would be a fun gift to give along with a bottle of his favourite brand. I’ve also included a DIY for a honey body wash - not too ‘girly’, but warm and sweet - and perfect for Dads who like all natural things. I’m thinking of making my dad some Beard Balm - a project I’ve shared before but is perfect to include here!
