The Best of Pinterest - DIY

After going through my past posts i remembered i haven't continued my best of pinterest mini series, so the next one is for my DIY/craft ideas board. Recently i have seen some lovely Christmas decoration ideas and tips for making wrapped presents more fancy on my feed and added them to my board. So on this post i have include some new pins and some of my favourite pins from the board, obviously had to include a DIY candle and something with marble. Also maybe some ideas for projects in the new year.

What are your favourite boards to follow on pinterest, including any DIY boards? xxx

Winter Party Outfits

Well its less than a week until Christmas (Yay), although the run up to it is great as well. So I thought I'd share some of my winter party outfit ideas for different occasions, like Christmas day, work parties, new years. Also I included some more dressy up and causal looks, depending on what i would prefer for the occasion.

Have you got any parties to go to and what will you wear? xxx

Bedside Table Night Time Essentials

Just thought i'd show you what products are on my bedside table, or technically its like a shelf just at the side of my bed but ya know. These are what i use every night when i get into bed and have already cleansed and moisturised. I usually keep them on the shelf just in case i forget when i'm in the bathroom, but remember if there on that shelf for some reason.

Anyway lets start with the Vaseline lip therapy rosy lips, this is a tinted lip balm i use it in the mornings but sometimes at night as well, its scent i quite nice, obviously a rose smell but not too strong or like old rose soap that people put in their drawers. It does the job and better for me plus the almond in it helps to keep your lips moisturised nearly all day.

Now the Yes to Carrots moisturising eye cream, i have mentioned this before, so it must be good if i'm still using it! It works well in my routine, i apply it after moisturising day and night. Also it helps my under-eye makeup to sit well until i take my makeup off at night.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar A.I. Targeted Breakout Corrector, quite a long name ehh? kinda does what it says in the name, i use this over spots and scars and where i can feel spots developing. It has helps to reduce scars but it takes quite a while so don't expect instant results but stick to it, i have seen results from it.

Next the Simple Revitalising Eye Roll-on, i have used this for years, its so nice to use first thing in a morning or last thing at night to soothe the eye area if its a bit puffy.

Finally Soap and Glory Hand Dream Super Cream, i love the scent of this and the fact it sinks in pretty quickly, although there's always something i need to do just after i've used it typical, and also the consistency its not too thick but just enough to moisturise my hands before i go to sleep.

What are your bedside table essentials for morning or night time? xxx

Style Edit - Printed Scarves

Hey, i'm back to blogging hopefully now! The past few weeks have been really mad, but i think i've settled in and got into a routine at uni and should be able to continue posting and i have managed to post two outfits a day on polyvore. So it is definitely autumn in the UK now and hats, scarves and gloves are out for winter in the shops.

Recently i have seen people styling scarves a bit differently, and there are a lot of printed and checked scarves in the shops, so i have put together may favourite street style looks and my own outfits from polyvore to show i would style a printed scarf.

Travel - Devon

Just at the end of August my family and i managed to go to Devon for a week, it is also the opposite end of the country as i live in Yorkshire and took around 6 hours to get there, but we had been before a few years ago and went back to the same area of Sidmouth as we enjoyed it very much. We stayed in a cottage which had recently been refurbished and was really lovely and had scones and clotted cream left for us by the owners. On the way we stopped off at Trentham Gardens which is part of the Trentham Estate in Stoke-on-Trent and i got quite a few good pictures of the flowers and statues there, also the ice cream we had was delish. This post has a lot of photos too and i have cut the number down to the ones i liked best.
