Big Yay For Clay!

You Will Need:
Ingredients of your choice
A small container

Face masks and saving money are two of my favourite things in life.. so combining the two sounds like a good time to me! I've recently discovered dry clay and how amazing it is so I thought I would share a few recipes I've come up with for all skin types. You can buy dry clay from ebay, simply type in face mask clay and choose whichever one you want! 

Now onto the good stuff.

Combination/Oily skin:
 4/5 table spoons of clay
 3 drops of tea tree oil
 3/4 table spoons of water
 A lemon segment
This is the one I use for myself and it works a treat!

Dry skin:
4/5 table spoons of clay
3/4 table spoons of coconut oil
1 table spoon of honey (preferably manuka honey)

Sensitive skin:
4/5 table spoons of clay
3/4 table spoons of milk 
1 table spoon of aloe vera

Simply throw all of your ingredients into a bowl, mix everything together and voila... Face mask! I store mine in a small container in the fridge to keep it fresh and use it about twice a week, leaving it on my face for half an hour at a time.

Don't be afraid to mess around with different ingredients and find out what works best for you, leave me comments below if you do try it out, i'd love to know how you got on! 

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend, I can already feel my Monday blues coming on.

Spice up ya shorts!

You will need:
Old Shorts
Fabric glue
Fabric of your choice

Step 1:
Cut your fabric into the shape of one side of your shorts. Be sure to cut it a little larger than the actual shape as this will help in step 2.

Step 2:
Using the fabric glue fold the sides of the fabric over and stick it onto the denim. Folding it over ensures that it won't ravel over time. Only glue the fabric around the edges of the shorts, this allows them to have more movement and not be stiff from the glue.

Step 3:
Repeat the exact same process on the back pocket. Cutting the shape out of the fabric, slighter larger, fold the edges and stick it down. 

And there you go! So easy and cheap to do!

I fiiiinnaally got around to painting my shed white so I have a place to take outfit pictures. I've also started college this week, which means I will be busier but I'll also have more of a routine and in turn be able to make blog posts a much more regular thing. So with all this in mind stick around for weekly posts and please don't be afraid to leave your comments below. 

Have a lovely weekend!
