3 Ways To Make Water Way More Flavourful | Brit + Co
I know a lot of people who hate drinking water and I get it - it’s not super exciting. But it’s so good for you that thinking of ways to make it more interesting is always a good idea. Brit + Co has 3 - Tea Infused Sparkling Water, Apple Infused Water and Cucumber Dill Water. The first two sound incredible to me - it may take me a bit to get into cucumber dill water (though I’ve heard it’s very refreshing!).

How To: Two Strand Twist | Refinery 29

Though I hate to admit it, I’m quite un-coordinated. I realised this quite young when I thought I was going to be an amazing drummer. This un-coordination extends to doing anything with my hair - I just can’t hold that and then move that there and then twist that… gah. This two strand twist seems to be right up my alley - surely I can twist two pieces of hair together!? Plus it apparently gives you nice beachy waves if you leave it in overnight. I’m sold!

How To; Make A Custom Stamp | Kojo Designs
When I was younger I took lino printing classes and it was incredibly fun. i think it’s the fact that you create something right from scratch - creating your own design, carving it and printing it, it’s so rewarding. And carving is so fun! And really, as long as you can trace a design and create an image with negative/positive areas you can turn it into a stamp!

How To Decorate A Dotty Cake | Manhattan Craft Room by Brett Bara
My niece’s birthday is a fortnight away, and even though she’s having a party on Sunday, her birthday is on Saturday so I really want to make her a special cake for her. I love traditions, and I think making this fr her birthday each year would be lovely - I could even make the dots in different colours! But I quite like the pastel colours in this one. I will have to practice doing dots before attempting a whole cake - unfortunately I’ll have to make quite a few cupcakes to be able to do that!

Be-Jeweled | The Beauty Department
Now back in the day young ladies went to deportment classes and learnt all the important things in life like what fork to use and how to walk with a book on your head (er, I think, I’m not positive on that…) I wish they had these style of classes around still, but instead they would teach you how to do an awesome winged eyeliner, how to walk in high heels, how to get cooking oil out of your favourite hoodie and such. Maybe I should start those. Anyway, I love the Beauty Department for giving me some tips on style, including this great guide on what earrings to wear with which hairstyle. Some people will find this vapid, but I think not getting your hair stuck in your favourite chandelier earrings is quite important. Not speaking from experience of course.

Scarf How To | Samantha Hahn

Samantha Hahn is one of my favourite illustrators. Her gorgeous designs combine digital media, ink and watercolour. I was having a trawl through her portfolio and found her ‘how to’ section with illustrations she’s done for different companies and magazines. I particularly like these two scarf how-to illustrations she’s done. Click on the pic to see more!

How To Style A Fishtail Braid | A Beautiful Mess
I think I’ve almost mastered the fishtail braid, which I’m pretty proud of because I’m usually pretty un-coordinated when it comes to styling my hair. I love the pretty yarn braided through this, though I would be slightly worried that it would get knotted in my hair forever and I’d have to cut it all out. What can I say, I’m a worrier. If you have blonde hair you could easily just streak some coloured bits through instead of the yarn, but I like the texture the yarn gives to this style. It’s up to you y’all!

How To Block Print Fabric | Prudent Baby
If you’ve never tried lino printing before, I implore you to. It’s incredibly fun and being able to print your own fabric is really rewarding (especially when people say ‘ooh, I love that fabric’ and you get to say ‘oh yeah, I made it’) You can get most of these items either from eBay or I know that in Australia you can get them from Eckersleys. Click through to the site to find out more and learn about how to block print and you’ll never look back!
