Spiky cover! First one for the stall, coming back in December!
Japanese KitKat Review!
I was so excited when my dad brought these back from his recent trip to Japan, but also a little… scared. I don’t read Japanese and had no idea what the flavours were, but with help from my amazing followers I found out. Here begins my journey… to flavour country.
clockwise from top left:
Green Tea: this was… not my favourite. you could really taste the tea, it tasted a bit smoky.
Passionfruit: One of my favourites, and it actually tasted like passionfruit!
Pumpkin Pudding; I hate pumpkin. After eating the first two I was worried about this one. But… it didn’t taste anything like pumpkin! Pudding, yes. Kind of sweet vanilla. My favourite!
Strawberry: Not exactly like real strawberry, but nothing like the usual Strawberry chocolate flavours you get in the US/Australia. Probably second favourite!
Cookies & Cream: The only one with a label, I figured I would like this one the most - I love the Hershey’s Cookie & Cream flavour! Yep, nothing like that. It almost tastes like coconut. Not terrible, but not really cookies and cream.
So in conclusion - if you get a chance to try any of these, go for it! It’s always so fun to try lollies from somewhere else.
About to try these Japanese KitKats. I have no idea what the flavours are except for the bottom right… This could be interesting…
edit: OK, from the comments of my fabulous readers, we can now determine that it goes… top left strawberry, top middle green tea, top right passionfruit, bottom right cookies & cream and bottom left pumpkin pudding?
This is so clever - a pretty accessory plus practical! I hate when you finish on the phone only to find your makeup all over it (or is this just me?! Maybe i need a better foundation…) Rose gives good advice on what kind of fabric to look for too - wouldn’t these make great stocking stuffers or small gifts for friends?!
I used to love painting, but these days I’m finding it harder to just create something from nothing. That’s why I love these inspiring DIYs. Though this piece is simple, it has a big impact, and you can choose whatever colours you want for your ‘pebbles’.
Who wouldn’t RSVP ‘yes’ to this invite!? Not really terrifying, but pretty spooky and a great way to get people in the mood for your party.
With Lovely has done a round up of her past halloween costumes, and I have to say that this Snow White one is my favourite! Plus it’s pretty easy to put together - as are most of her costumes. I love the added detail of the little bird on the wrist - so cute!
Sunday Afternoon Playlist 13th October
I’m trying something different this Sunday - instead of links, I’ve made a playlist instead! Hopefully y’all will find this easier to listen to. Enjoy this weeks list - I’m so excited about a new song by Haerts!
I have to admit, I’m pretty disappointed with the DIY adult costumes this year, but the kid ones are awesome! I saw the Anna Wintour one via Pintrest and fell in love - so cute, plus if you get bored you can read the Vogue mag!
First of all, I adore the styling of EDC - it’s always so fun and pretty (plus I really want those Eiffel Tower scissors!). Second of all, I’ve already printed out some of these kiss note cards to keep in my hand bag - perfect to write little notes on for those times when you don’t want to leave a post it!
This is such a good idea for us folks who always forget to take our lipstick with us in the morning (me!). You do need quick hands, but once you’ve got the hang of it, you could make a few - perfect Christmas pressies (yep, I’m already planning for Christmas!)
So excited about my new Japanese makeup! 😍
I can’t even remember how I came across these awesome temporary tattoos, but how cool are they!? I adore the pop art one, but the cheetah is very cool too. A great way to make sure you don’t end up with a smudged face at the end of the Halloween party!
Can you guess what this faux agate is made from? Don’t look at my tags! OK, so you looked, it’s polymer clay! This is just so cool, and there are so many things you could make with these pretties (other than just as pretty decoration) Think earrings, coasters, pendants, even frame them for art!
Spray paint has a bad rep. Back in the day it was oily, toxic and only available in colours like black, brown, red and browny red. But as you can see, spray paint has changed with the times and comes in a myriad of colours, types and textures. Curbly has rounded up a fantastic set of projects using this overlooked product, in lots of different ways. Personally I adore those gold letters (formerly plastic blue, yellow & red!) and the gold/pink book ends. Click through for all the links!
