4 of July

I’m back!! After a lovely long weekend, some time to catch up with family and friends, and enjoy Canada Day… I am back and ready to get BLOGGING!

After a night of fireworks to celebrate Canada Day… my mind has wandered to the fact that America will be lighting up their skies with fireworks this Friday for Fourth of July. So I have decided to do a blog post on ways my American friends can incorporate their flag into their lives this Friday.

Clothing… probably the most obvious way to incorporate your flag. Their are many different clothing items promoting the American flag available for sale on the high street. However you don’t have to deck yourself from head to toe, you could just use one item… or create an outfit of red, white and blue…. e.g red top, blue shorts, white shoes.

Many of you will be getting your kit off this Friday… I am sure!… whether it is at the beach, back garden, pool whatever… everyone seems to get a little naked on July 4th. So show your patriotic by plastering your flag on your private parts! There are lots of cute bikini’s available at places like American Apparel, Target, Nastygal.

Having people over? Or just hungry? Food is the way… not only is it delicious but you can have some fun by adding the American flag into your meals.

Why not bring some of that pride indoors, adding decorative pieces to your interior is not only being patriotic but also making your space look great. There are so many DIY ideas online to add some flag into your house.

Now all that’s left to decorate is your car. You don’t have to paint the whole thing in an American flag… unless you want to, and if in that case don’t hold me responsible. You can add a simple car flag… these are super cheap and easy to get a hold of… especially with the world cup going on.

I hope you all have a fantastic July 4th… and an amazing long weekend! Be safe and have FUN.

Father’s Day

Image

So for most of you you know that Father’s Day is this Sunday June 15th, for others this is a massive reminder!

But if you are like me, then you haven’t got your gift yet. I thought I would help out… here is a last minute DIY gift ideas for you!

1. Photo Album

Image

You can now get images printed really quickly… in fact on the Walmart website you can upload your images on line and pick them up in an hour… then all you need is an album and a little bit of time.

2. BBQ

Image

Research some BBQ sauce recipes and make some up, put in a cute mason jar and their ready for your dad to get his grill on.

3. Beer Cake

Image

If your of legal age, then you can grab this one for your Dad. Instead of giving him a 12 pack make it a decorative 12 pack.

4. Gift Box

Image

Make your Dad a gift box of all his fav things!… e.g cheese box, blu ray box, bbq box, aftershave box.

5. Key hook

Image

I am sure you have wine corks lying around, turn those corks into something decorative for Dad… simply glue the corks together then screw in some hooks… finished!

 

I do hope these 5 last minute DIY Father’s Day gifts have at least helped inspire you. A personal touch is really the best gift.

Happy Father’s Day!

Nailed It

Nailed It

So I received an e-mail from Pinterest the other day, about how nail art is trending. After seeing the e-mail I started to notice on my days out that nail art is trending, on the hands of old and young alike.

I have tried to do some nail art before, and failed drastically so I tend to stick to the, boring one color (fav color… Chanel Black Pearl). However I do think nail art is super cool and would love to practice again.

So after searching I came across a blog called ‘nailed it’ (www.blognailedit.co), there are so many different styles of nails for you to try out along with step by steps.

My goal is to follow at least a few of these nail tutorials, to jazz up my summer wardrobe.

How do you wear your nails?
