Poor James! Snapshots

This Snapshots has an abnormally large number of photos of me in it… Maybe this is James’ snapshots? I spend my week staring at the tops of buildings and he is forced to stare at my face haha!

Watercolour Style Silk Painting Experiments!

I’ve been experimenting in finding my own silk painting style lately and while I still haven’t really found it yet it’s been fun so far! Today I’ll show you the techniques I used to make the rose painting below. I was aiming for a finish more like watercolour paints but I still haven’t really got it how I imagine in my head yet!

How To Make A Puppy Mattress – Lottie’s Home Sweet Home

Miss Lottie’s new-ish house isn’t nearly as soft and comfy as her old strawberry was :( So I set about making it a bit more awesome by making a little mattress she could sleep on in the bottom. I’ve tried putting blankets and regular pillows in but she just shoves them to the back >_<

Anyway the end result was really cute!

Fuse Gelnamel System Review

Recently I received a “Fuse Gelnamel” kit from their PR department. It was a bit of bad timing considering only a few months before hand I had been desperately trying to find a gel system that I could buy from the beauty stores here with no luck. I ended up getting a full set for Christmas and discovered a brand of polishes that I really liked so I wasn’t really in the market for anything anymore… but I do like trying new things so yay!
