Faux Updo For Short Hair | Keiko Lynn
Keiko Lynn is my beauty hero. She seems to have perfected the cat eye, always has the most amazing lipstick and she can tie a hair scarf like a fiend! Sigh. Anyway, whilst perusing her site, I came across this fantastic tutorial on how to do an updo for short hair. I kind of sadly accepted I would no longer be able to put my hair up once I cut it, but this style which combines a teased crown, bobby pins & a pretty scarf is something even I could re-create! Perfect Summer hair!

Natural Cleaning | Henry Happened

There are lots of reasons you might prefer to use all natural products for cleaning - for me it’s mainly health reasons! When you suffer from asthma, you find that many cleaning products can set off an attack. Of course, there is also the impact on our environment and general health. The unfortunate thing is that often you find that all natural cleaners just don’t do as well as the chemical filled commercial products. So I was excited to see a post on HH about a grease-fighting dish soap. HH has done the hard work and research to work out how to get a good natural dishsoap that will get your dishes clean without the residue. From there, I went on a click frenzy through her other posts which include Citrus Garbage Disposal refreshers, Naturally Antibacterial All Purpose Cleaner, and 5 Naturally Antibacterial Bathroom Cleaners. You’ll need to go out and purchase a few things like liquid castile soap (Dr Bronner is a fantastic Australian company that makes liquid castile soap & other beautiful castile products!) but in the end your body, environment and house will thank you! I’m planning on getting some castile soap tomorrow and making my own hand soap and some soft scrub for my bathroom!

Hanging Planter | For The Makers
I’m starting to see these hanging planters everywhere at the moment, but they’re mostly in neon colours. Not that I have anything against neon, but it doesn’t really fit in with my decor! I really love these hangers - soft and pastel and pretty. The cups are called ‘bleached bell cups’, dyed with kool aid and the plants are air plants - etsy has a great selection of air plants.

Coffee Filter Garland | 31 Bits
I super love this garland! It’s soft, sweet and so easy to make. But it’s going to take a while to create something similar to the one pictured - 1000 filters! Wow. This would be gorgeous as a backdrop for a wedding, but I would love to hang this in my bedroom (but I’d make it in blues & greens). Time to get started on it now!

DIY Air Dry Clay | Mashia Crafts 
Air Dry Clay or Cold Porcelain is so fun to use - like playdough but it air dries hard. I was a bit dubious of how easy it was to make but all you need is glue, cornstarch, lemon juice and baby oil… and a microwave! You can dye it any colour you want, which means you’re going to save money on buying lots of different colours. Have a look back through the archive for lots of projects you can create with your new DIY dough!

Have You Heard Of? | Gingermelon

I love working with felt - it’s so easy to use! No fraying, easy to cut, easy to shape, and there are so many different projects to create with it! Gingermelon is one of my all time favourite stores on etsy. There are so many adorable projects, where do I start!? The first thing I bought were the little animal brooches (top right) and made a little rabbit hair tie and recently I bought the house pin cushion - so easy to make. I’m hoping to some day create the gorgeous unicorn and maybe a few pocket pals. Not only are there tons of patterns you can buy, there’s also felt, paper dolls & embroidery designs. And if you want to make a few dolls to sell in your store or stall, you can do that too (as long as you give design credit to Gingermelon). This is really generous when you think about how long it takes to design all these pieces (and I can assure you that little girls and boys LOVE these toys!) Oh yes, and there’s also an Easter Sale going on right now - click here to see all the patterns that are currently 20% off!

Night Table Makeover | Anna + Evers
I’ve been thinking about getting a new bedside table but there are quite a few things to take into account - a cat will inevitably jump up on it, i have to be able to store a bevy of magazines in it, my bedside table lamp is incredibly heavy and….I want it to look nice! So when I saw this DIY I was so excited, because not only is it a practical table, but it’s really pretty! Oh and not too hard to create (a bonus when it comes to projects like this)

Upcycle Your World! | CD Cases & Spindles

If you were born before MP3’s, you probably have a stack of CD cases sitting around, gathering dust and getting more brittle by the day. And if you’re born after MP3’s, you probably have CD spindles sitting around too! Well instead of chucking them in the bin, Upcycle those babies into something special. I particularly like the little CD glass house - so cute!
