Vintage Make-Up Compacts

Hi!

Just thought I’d share these cute little make up compacts with you! My mom gave them to me today and I am so in love with them!

They look like brand new inside as well, I’m not sure whether they’ve even been used. I’m thinking of putting powder in the one and blusher in the other? Let me know what you think!

Earth Ships?

Hiya! So I’ve always been a little bit of a tree hugger – not gonna lie! I’d love to become self-sufficient one day too and I’ve been looking at a few ways of doing so.

I found loads of blogs, images and videos of these Earth Ships – and they actually look amazing. They don’t sound it (being made out of like, old tyres and bottles) but they really do look quite beautiful. Plus, they’re pretty eco-friendly.

I’ve read that you can build them yourself too? How cool is that? I realllllllyyyyy want one!!! I think they work out about the same price as building a normal house though, so I have a little bit of a wait ahead of me.

Last Day Yesterday

Hey, so it was my last day at work yesterday. I was really sad to say bye but it’s the start of something new and exciting!

I didn’t realise how used to it I’d got. It felt really weird knowing that I wouldn’t have to go there anymore.

My beautiful friend Sam got me someΒ flowers, even though we are deffo gonna see each other loads (starting with a huge vintage fair next Sunday!) which was super sweet. Then a few of us went for a couple of drinks to say byeeeeee! Me and Heather got carried away – ended up with tequila……. Bad ass!

Monday, I did something terrifying.

I. Quit. My. Job.

It’s not what you’re probably thinking though!

I quit to finally start up my business, that I’ve been working on for such a painfully long time. Some of you might know that I studied fashion & clothes making at college; it’s something that I love putting my time into & want to pursue as a career. So that’s what I’m going to do. I leave work on the 26th of September so by then I hope to be up and running and selling the things that I make & put time into.

Scaryyyyyy times!! I am terrified but excited! SO MANY EMOTIONS. So. Many.

Here are a couple of pictures showing you a teeny weeny glimpse of what it is that I do. I will post my actual shop link when it’s up!

My Baby Sister

Happy Monday Evening!

Thought I would post some pictures of me & my favourite little lady! I have to admit, since I moved out I miss my little brother & sister so much. Obviously I can’t live with them forever! There’s 18 years between us – that’s a big difference!

I love disney so dragged my little bro to the disney store hahaha. There was a little mermaid mug that I wanted but apparently they don’t make the mugs in that style anymore which is a but rubbish. I have a tangled one from Christmas and it’s so cute! Kind of sad that will be my last one haha lameeeee! Anyway, I saw this Alice in wonderland cup which I thought was super cute.

The guy at the till was like, totally amazing too. After I’d bought it he said “have a magical day!” – you do not even understand how happy he made me β˜ΊοΈβœ¨πŸ’Ž

The Vans store had some crazy ass sale on too – obviously I couldn’t miss that due to being a dedicated Vans fan 😜 I bought these high tops for Β£28!! How good is that? They’re usually like Β£60 so I am currently a very happy bunny!
