LOVELY FINDS No7

Here are this week's lovely finds (yes I know, I'm very late):





This is in fact a DIY kit for this pillow. Unfortunately the shop is taking a short break so the pillow isn't available at the moment but I thought it was still worth putting it on the list.

I've already started collecting these awesome POP FUNKOs. I have Star Lord but I would love to have the whole American Horror Story collection. Available at funko.com.






Speaking of American Horror Story, I would love to have this t-shirt. I'm not sure where I can get it but I could probably make it myself. I also want one written "normal people scare me".










I also want all of the Penguin's Little Black Classics. I've started my own collection with just 5 of them at the moment but they are so affordable, I'm sure I'll end up buying all of them during the summer holiday.

Ooh! Look at this super quirky ceramic elephant based lampshade. Would look awesome in my room!
I'm not sure if they're available but I found them on www.blog.westelm.com.











The Harry Potter book set from Barnes and Noble is definitely a must have!

And yes the Phantom of the Opera tops my list. I've been looking for this everywhere and it seems that it is quite hard to find. I need the album right now!








That's it for today!

Enjoy!


ICE CREAM NAILS


Manicure Monday: Ice Cream Nails with Syl and Sam at LuLus.com!

Sorry for being so inactive lately, I've been very busy with my exams and I still have a few more to go. Now that it is summer, you are probably looking for a fun project to try out or something to put the cherry on top of your look. Well I found the perfect DIY at www.blog.lulus.com.

What you'll need:

– a base colour (turquoise)
– some “ice cream colours” (strawberry pink and vanilla white)
– two shades of brown for the “cone”
– a red for the cherry
– a striper brush

How to do it:

1. Start with a few coats of your base colour. Make sure that it’s completely dry before continuing.

2. Then take your ice cream colour and paint a “scoop at the tip of your nail. You should be able to just swoop over the tip of the nail and get a good circle shape. This might require a couple of coats. Just be sure to let the polish dry between coats.

3. Take some of your cherry red polish & drop it onto some scrap paper or foil. Using the back end of your paint brush, dip it into the paint.

4. Then take the dipped paintbrush end and dab it onto the top of the ice cream scoops.

5. This part is optional, but you can take a toothpick and dip into any colour of nail polish. Then dab the toothpink on an angle onto the ice cream to create sprinkles!

6. Then take your lighter brown and make triangular shapes on the tips of your nails on your OTHER hand. They don’t have to be perfect.

7. Then using your striper brush, grab some of your darker brown and outline the triangles. Then draw a criss-cross pattern on the cone so that it look like a yummy waffle cone!
