Moroccan Themed Valance | Lowe’s Creative Ideas
I have had the same raw wooden valance in my room since I moved into my house… 6 years ago. it was meant to be temporary - but it’s funny how ‘temporary’ can last for ages! But my room is getting a makeover soon with the help of some gorgeous Laura Ashley wallpaper, a coat of paint… and a new valance! I am so in love with this Moroccan themed one, it looks so chic and would go so well with my new wallpaper. I’m saving this for future reference!
Neon Necklaces | From Panka With Love
If you’re keen to start making your own jewellery, Fimo clay is one of the most versatile products you can use. You can shape and cut it and create one of a kind pieces - similar to those you see in the shops these days - geometric styles are everywhere!
Sumo Plastic Bottle Bowling Pins | Pink Stripey Socks
These are the cutest things I have seen in ages! My niece is absolutely obsessed with bowling, and i think she would have even more fun with these sumo bowling pins - actually there are a few grown ups who would like them too!
Organising Your Desktop | Lana Red
If you’re as obsessed as me as keeping everything on your computer tidy, this is a great way to not only keep all your files organised, but also make it look pretty to boot! All of the ‘bags’ on the shelves are actually files - how clever is that!?
Harper Twistback Tee | Rock Mosaic
Sometimes the simplest DIYs are the coolest - this one being made from an oversized men’s tee and some twisting! If you’re not keen on exposing your back, this would look awesome layered over a neon or floral top.
March is Birthday month for me - my niece, sister and dad all have their birthdays at the end of the month, with mine coming up in April. So at the moment everything is party, party, party for me! Of course I have already sorted out everyone else’s birthdays but when people ask me what I want, I can never remember! So here’s my birthday wish list (feel free to send me anything from here, wink wink!)
Heart Dish | Darielle’s Clay
I love little dishes like this, and I love the colours of these!
Peaches & Cream Hair Extensions | Lulu’s Galaxy
After seeing Lauren Conrad’s gorgeous multicoloured tips, I’ve always wanted to do the same, but I’ve got dark hair and hair committment issues. Lulu’s Galaxy has amazing extensions, I want them all!
‘Fair Dinkum’ Mason Jars | Beach Blues
Perfect for my mantle piece, filled with fresh flowers.
Tiny Gold Letter Bracelet | Lila’s Chocolat France
I’m a sucker for anything monogramed, and these sweet little bracelets would look amazing with absolutely anything. I’ll have three for each of my names thanks!
New York Brooklyn Bridge | Laura Amiss
I miss New York so much, having just a little piece of it in my house would always remind me of my happy memories there.
Personalised Aztec Phone Case | Happy Rabbitz
What did I say about monograms?! I also change my phone cover every month because I always get sick of them - I think this one would stick around for a little longer.
If you have written me a message, I’m sorry for not getting back to you - it says ‘10 messages’ but doesn’t actually display them. It just keeps ‘refreshing’ and not doing anything.
Has anyone else had this problem? If you know how to fix it I would be eternally grateful!
And if you have sent a message lately, please try again and hopefully it will come through soon…
Happy Chic by Jonathan Adler for JC Penney
When I lived in the States, I seem to remember that JC Penney wasn’t really… how do I put this…. cool. Well my opinion on them has completely changed because they are now seeling Happy Chic by Jonathan Adler, and I’m so incredibly jealous of y’all to be able to shop there! I adore every single piece that Jonathan makes - his designs are colourful, preppy, mod and just happy. His collection for JC Penney comes in five ‘ladies’ - Charlotte (green), Elizabeth (blue), Katie (pink), Lola (yellow) and Alexa (red/black). The great thing is that all the pieces mix and match so perfectly together. I want that pink owl pillow so bad! And that bed, the bedspread, that lovely velvet sofa, that vase,……
Painted Paper Flower Headbands | Oh Happy Day
I love the idea of having an Easter tradition of getting everyone to make their own Easter bonnet! And Oh Happy Day delivers with instructions on how to make the perfect ones. These combine everything about Spring & Easter to me - ribbon, pastel, flowers - like happiness for your head! Love times a million!
Spring Wreath | Kojo Designs
I love Spring, and I love the designs and fashions inspired by spring - pastels are my favourite, and combine them with gold and I’m all over it! This is super cheap to make (and you can just upcycle an old wreathif you want to) and a great way to introduce colour and fun to your house.
Crystal Egg Geodes | Martha Stewart
Yep, that’s right, these pretty little gem coloured beauties are made from eggs! If you’re over painting eggs, this is a great crafty/science alternative. You will need alum powder and at least two days to grow your crystals, but how amazing is the finished product?!
Cellulite Coffee Scrub | Henry Happened
Remember when you were younger and you’d see the front of fashion mags that had a cure for cellulite?! I remember thinking- why is everyone always freaking out about cellulite?! Get over it people! Yeah, well now I’m older I understand. Not that my life will end because I have cellulite, but it’s not pleasant is it?! Here is a great, all natural at home recipe to help fight it. It’s not going to get rid of it, but if it reduces the appearance, well then why not. Plus it smells awesome and does a great job exfoliating. Just don’t eat it!
Halo Braid | Fashion Magazine
Last Monday, in a fit of frustration, I cut my hair short. I don’t regret it because it actually looks pretty good (though I would not suggest cutting your own hair to anyone - mine is quite wavy which makes the choppy look work!). But then I find a ton of gorgeous braids on the internet. Of course! But that doesn’t mean I can’t share these looks with you, my fab reader. If you’re doing something special this weekend then this might be a great Spring look.
