Spring Essentials/Favourites...

Hey guys, I hope you all had a great Easter! Today, I wanted to show you some of my spring essentials :)
 
Okay, to start with my favourite skin care item so far has to be this lovely product called Steam Cream, it can be used on the face, hands and body but I like to use it just on my face. It is so gentle and nourishes dry skin but cares for oily skin and is great for all skin types. Plus you can choose what type of tin you want from hundreds of designs. Have a look...


During spring my favourite type of lip product to use is lip-gloss, recently I have been using Tanya Burr's lip-gloss in Picnic in the park, it is such a beautiful shade, I can't wait to purchase some different colours from her range. Her products are now in Superdrugs around the UK so go have a look.
 
 
Whenever the sun starts to come out more and the days get shorter, I always like to smell really nice so one of my favourite fragrances to use in spring, is one by River Island, it is a beautiful fragrance and has a lovely subtle floral scent. Also the bottle is a really good quality.

 
For the past few weeks I have been using this Wella SP Luxe Oil everyday and I have noticed how much it has helped my split ends! It smells so so nice and it's such a lovely product, I recommend it to anyone who has really long hair with dry ends and anyone with split ends.
 
 
If you have any Spring essentials and want to share, I'd love to know what you've been loving

How to make Pom Poms...

Hey everyone, today I'm going to show you how to make these really sweet Pom Poms that you will be able to use in the next DIY project that I'm doing to show you all, so let's get started...
 
 
You will need:
a roll of wool
a piece of card
scissors

Steps:

First you cut out two circles from your card like this...


Then you cut out the middle like so, make sure to cut a slit in like this (It makes wrapping the wool around much easier)...
 

Next start wrapping the wool around the circles and carry on till you get to the end.
 

 
 
Use the remaining wool to wrap around the middle of the Pom Pom in-between the two bits of card like this...

 
Then tie two tight knots.
After that use your scissors to cut of any long bits of wool and then ruffle the Pom Pom up so it looks like this...
 
 
Have a great day
