A Birthday Wishlist

Hey sweetie pies, so next weekend it's my birthday and I can't tell you how excited I am! I think Christmas and Birthdays are just the best! I always love making wish lists because wishing is one of my favourite things too do! Here is what I really love....
 


For the longest time ever I have been eyeing up these gorgeous Chelsea boots from New Look and love that they aren't too expensive!
 
Then on my list is this lovely Leather jacket, I still can't believe that I haven't owned one in my life before! but this one is in the Topshop sale which is an added bonus.
 
Lastly is this beautiful Navy Blue Dress from ZARA which would look lovely with the Chelsea boots in my opinion.
 
What have you been wishing for recently?

Little Blue Bird for your Keys

Hello everyone! Its Back to school season after the Christmas holidays (which can be so hard, I know) and because of that, I thought I would  show you a DIY project! Today, I'm going to make a Little Blue Bird that will keep your house keys from getting lost in the black hole that is...
.... a handbag! This DIY takes a little bit of preparation but is easy if you follow these steps!

 
Your will need:

2 pieces of blue felt
a little bit of light blue felt
a tiny bit of green felt
a bundle of thread
2 black beads for the eyes
some stuffing
some Ric-a-Rac and a piece of ribbon

Extra Embellishments (use whatever you want):
 
some cotton fabric (mine is dotty)
different coloured felt

Equipment:
 
Scissors
needle
a lanyard clip (this is the metal thing that attaches the bird to your keys, however if you don't have it the alternative is just ribbon)

and a template of a bird here is a pretty one, I used a template I had lying around!

Instructions:

 
Firstly cut out your templates and cut them all out. You need to cut two blue bird bodies out of blue felt, a circle for its eye out of light blue and cut two leaves out of green felt. Feel free to add any embellishments you want to your birdy..
 

Then sew on all the embellishments like so..
 
 

Next add the ribbon on to the bird and attach to the lanyard clip
 
Have fun xx

MAC Lip Glaze 'Hue'

Hey everyone, sorry that I have been lacking in the blog post department, I just haven't been inspired to sit down and write about something that I'm not interested in. I decided this week (yes it's a little late for a New Years resolution, but I only just thought of it) that I want to post at least one post every week on a Friday. This means I will have a little routine for my blog!
 
Anyway, what I wanted to do today was write a review on MAC's Lip Glaze 'Hue' which is one of MAC's original colours, I believe (I think originals are the best) and I picked it up the other day. It is my first MAC product (gasp) and I love it so much. First of all can I just say that the "lid" click MAC lipsticks have is so satisfying, if you don't own one just go in to your closest store and put the lid on (I told you). Now, lets not get side tracked, the actual colour is pale pink with a tinge of nude. It has a glossy texture and doesn't dry out the lips. It is so beautiful. If your thinking of purchasing it I recommend it completely!
 

 
 
 
I hope you all have had a great week!
