DIY // Flag Clutch

DIY Flag Clutch

When you're a crafter, you probably spend just as much time in the dollar store as you do shopping for groceries. Since Australia Day is coming up, I've been finding these handheld flags in just about every dollar store and they're the perfect size for a clutch. Of course, you don't have to use it as a clutch - it works pretty well as a tablet case as well. Read on for this super simple DIY!

DIY // Tinsel Nails

DIY Christmas Tinsel Nails

Merry Christmas! The day has finally come: the gifts have been unwrapped, many hugs exchanged, much wow, such thanks... and with it, a lot of cleaning up to do when the decorations need to be taken down later on. If your tinsel is like mine, it likes to shed into a huge glittering pile guarded by the prickly arms of your tree much like how Smaug guards his mountain of gold. But before you set your vacuum on it, why not try this nail look? It'll give your after-Christmas cleanup some much needed spirit!

DIY // Christmas Mini-Tree Table Decor

DIY Christmas Mini-Tree Table Decor

My favourite holiday of the year is definitely Christmas... why? Because PRESENTS! No, I'm just kidding -  Christmas is not just about receiving and giving gifts. It's a time to catch up with people you haven't seen in a while, whether they be friends or family, and just relax and enjoy each others' company (and the fact that straight after Christmas comes the Boxing Day sales doesn't hurt either!). Christmas is also my favourite holiday to decorate, because who doesn't love all the lights and tinsel? In this post, I'm going to show you how to make an easy table decoration that will make the perfect centrepiece for your Christmas dinner.

TIPS // Revamp your old nail polish

Stuvac is here! (For those who aren't from Australia, this is short for 'study vacation') While this means I can finally sleep in on weekdays, it also heralds the start of the exam period... and the first one I have is on Partial Differential Equations. Bummer. But I've found some time in between my frantic revision of Laplace transforms and Fourier series to give you something fun you can do with any nail polish you dislike (and a bit of a continuation from my DIY Eyeshadow Nail Polish)!
