Hot Chocolate Snowman!



Hello Lovelies! 

Do you wanna build a snowman? 

Today I wanted to show you how to create this Hot Chocolate Snowman! Perfect home-made gift for a Christmas present; easy to make, simple and effective. 

1) Select 3 small jars, from a craft store or I found these three small jam jars that I already owned. The bigger the jars, the more hot chocolate I suppose you give your friend! 


2) Next, super glue the three jars together by the lids. Make sure you don't super glue the lids shut to the jars though! (make sure you can still open up the jars)


3) To turn your three jars into a snow man, you're going to need some black card, orange card, some ribbon/string of your choice, scissors and a glue stick.


4) Here is how I made my snowman look:


5) Finally, finish off by filling the contents of your three jars! I have selected the three items bellow:


But of course you can fill your jars with the contents of your choice :) 


I hoped you liked this DIY! 
Talk soon
Love
Abi!

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick DUPE



 Hey Lovelies!

Many of you may know of the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick which retails at around £32, and many of you may agree with me that £32 is rather a ridiculous price for a highlighting palette. Therefore when I stumbled across this Revlon 030 Bronze Glow Highlighting Palette in Boots a couple of weeks ago, which retails at £8.99, I had to show you guys!



Simply brush on to enhance complexion for a natural sun kissed look. Perfect for the winter, Christmassy season where your cheeks need that extra warmth and shimmer.






 Of course this dupe isn't as good as the original Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick, however if you're looking for a reasonable highlighter I highly recommend this Revlon palette, especially as you'll save around £24!

I hope this helped!

I've Re-Decorated My Bedroom!

Hello Lovelies!

I've recently finished a massive makeover of my bedroom and I'm so so happy with how it now looks. It had been torture not having a bedroom for over a month (Imagine having no wardrobe for your clothes or no dressing table!)  I wasn't sure if you would be interested in seeing what it looks like, but I just had to take a few photos! So here we go....













Interested in what I think of the Real Technique brushes? Check out the links bellow :)
