Hey cats!

As usual, I am sorry for my lack of posts. I am a lazy human bean, apologies. I should (hopefully) (probably) have a winter haul kind of post up soon so stay with me. This should be my first of hopefully many “favourites” posts. I’ve just been stockpiling nice photos and stuff to share with people and I was like hey, why not make a blog post out of it???

TREND/s

I know this isn’t exactly a fashion trend, but at the moment #australianproblemnight has been trending on social media and it is literally the funniest thing EVER. My personal favourite has to be this one;

BqEe5k1CQAAYwQM

My other favourite trend is the one where it’s socially acceptable to wear flannels with everything. Whoever made that a thing, god bless.

d.i.y tie dye shirt // (◡‿◡✿)

Hey cats!
So a few weeks ago I had this school event called charities day which is basically a fete/fair but only within the school. My group made cute as frick tie dye tops and me and a few of my friends spent about four and a half hours after school dying 30 shirts we ordered online ಥ ‿ ಥ ((these emojis are so cute don’t stop me)). It was pretty fun lying on the driveway watching confused people walk past wondering what we were doing, but eventually the bloody mozzies came and I’m going to stop there you know the ending. I annoyed everyone a lot by taking photos saying I would post them on the facebook page ((I lied. They were for the blog)).
D.I.Y is super rad but mostly the best when you already have all the stuff at home and you don’t have to go and buy it. When you go out and buy stuff and it’s like over $10 you sort of start wondering if its worth it, right? I’m lucky that my mum sews to keep sane so we always have 543350y63i6 boxes of sewing/craft stuff lying around which for some reason has caused me to stop sewing??? I’m not really sure tbh. I used to sew a lot but now high school ew. Anyway, most of these things you should lying around your house if you want to make a basic top but I SHOULD GET STARTED SORRY.

MATERIALS
☆ Plain white tee
☆ Packet of dye (Cheapest dye we found was rit dye which is around $6 a packet at spotlight/lincraft) or if you want a rainbow top the cheapest option is to buy a kit (I’m sorry, this is the most expensive part of the procedure)
☆ Rubber bands
☆ Fork
☆ Bucket
☆ A place you can get messy or newspaper/tarp

This works out cheapest if you do it with a friend. A dye kit is around $45 and makes 5-10 shirts. This works out pretty well between 4-5 people. Also, the packets of dye dye around 10 shirts we have found.

STEP 1: TYING AND PREPARING SHIRTS
☆ Firstly, you need to make sure that the shirt you are using has been washed before. This will mean the dye sticks on much better.
☆ Now you need your rubber bands and fork.
☆ Using the fork, push down on the part of the shirt you want your spiral to be centred. Twist the fork so that the fabric twirls around it until as much fabric is wrapped around as possible.
004
☆ Now, keeping the spiral shape intact, wrangle a rubber band over the shirt so that it is keeping the spiralled up shirt in its spiralled up shape.
☆ Make the shirt into sixths using two other rubber bands. This is what it should look like:
009

This tutorial is for a spiral pattern by the way, which we found was all round the nicest pattern on the shirts. There are many other tutorials for other patterns you can do here: http://www.favecrafts.com/Tie-Dye/Tie-Dye-Techniques-and-Patterns

STEP 2: DYING

☆If you are using a kit, follow the instructions.
☆Make sure the shirt is damp before hand because it absorves better.
☆If you are using a packet of dye, prepare it to instructions and then get a bottle fill it with the dye and squirt it all over the shirt.
☆Make sure to do both sides!
☆Try not to make it too saturated otherwise the spiral will be very weak.
021

☆Lastly, do what the instructions say to do for setting the dye.

MIDNIGHT MEMORIES // Album Review

// sorry for in-activity I have a really nice new post coming soon so patience my nigs //

Heyyy! I am going to review every song on the Midnight Memories album by One Direction, because I needed to post something and I’ve heard this album before. Let me know if you want more album reviews, this one will be very basic.

1. Best Song Ever

This song isn’t as bad as it could be. I mean, at least they aren’t saying that this song is the best song ever. They are just saying that they danced all night to the best song ever. I think it’s about One Direction trying to hook up with a girl while drunk (good on her for saying no). It was a weird song to release as an EP, but hey it’s actually really catchy and different to their old stuff.

2. Story Of My Life

I can’t take this song seriously anymore after this; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jD6rKhzV_m0 like seriously, it’s permanently etched into my mind.

3. Diana

I really like this song. It’s cool and it’s different- 3 songs in and already you can tell how much they’ve matured as artists. It’s kind of weird though, who’s even called Diana anymore??? I wish my name was Diana *swoons*.

4. Midnight Memories

OOOOH SUCH POP ROCK VERY WOW. AND THEY NEARLY SWORE IN A SONG. What’s with the weird panting though??? And harry looks so doped in this live performance; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7nvRW85iPw

5. You And I

Boooringgggggg. I like the cover art for the single though.

6. Don’t Forget Where You Belong

It’s cute. They are reverting back to Up All Night type songs though. SNAP OUT OF IT.

7. Strong

Idk man it’s ok. It doesn’t really stand out that much. All the songs are starting to sound similar now.

8. Happily

WOW. This is a good song (Harry co-wrote it btw). It’s pop-ish BUT IT’S REALLY GOOD. THE ACOUSTIC IS BETTER THOUGH; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUnqu_vVKOk like OWOWWOWOOWOOW CAN U STOP PLEASE ZAYN’S HIGH NOTE??? LOUIS’S ADORABLE VOICE???

9. Right Now

I like it but I don’t have much to say about it. Niall sounds rad.

10. Little Black Dress

Nice target audiencing. Everyone owns a little black dress. Except for guys. Except… some. It’s more rock and roll but yeah it’s a bit boring.

11. Through The Dark

At first I hated this song, but WOW it has so caught on to me. It’s so niceeeee and asfuenegenw harry doesn’t get many parts though ):

12. Something Great

It sounds like a Christmas carol. Or a jesus song.

13. Little White Lies

I get this and little black dress confused. But I like this better it’s slightly more catchy.

14. Better Than Words

It won’t load ): It doesn’t stand out that much though.

SIDENOTE:

This album gets better and better the more you listen to it. When it first came out I didn’t like it at all but now I REALLY FUCKING LOVE IT.

OVERALL:

This review was my original opinions of the songs. They have changed a bit now and I like it a lot more, and to be honest a lot of the songs are just plain catchy – it doesn’t matter that Best Song Ever is a pretty stupid song, I still catch my self singing it unawares. After having it on playlists for about 4 months, my overall favourites are Happily (Acoustic), Through The Dark and Diana. Overall I would give it an 8/10 now, after getting more used to the songs. It’s like a pair of new doc martens, painful at the beginning but after you’ve worn them in they are comfy as frick.

 

 

 

 

☼ Skincare Routine ☼

 

434

Hey!

Today I’ve uploaded my daily skincare routine which I have been using for about a year now, on and off. It’s based on The Regimen, if you google it you will find more info on it, but it’s basically a template for a skin cleansing ritual.

I would describe my skin as combination, I have an oily nose, forehead and hairline. My main struggle with my skin is small bumps, which I wouldn’t quite describe as white heads. They pop up in clusters and you can’t really feel them, but you can see every single mark. If you use this routine it should definitely go away in around 2-3 weeks of doing it. I also get the occasional big red pimple, but not heaps. I’ve tried so many things with my skin and this is what has worked most effectively.

This is my skin in natural light (gross mugshot of me I know) and as you can see my main issue is dat big red pimple. Anyway, now I’ve given you an idea of what my skin is like and if yours is anything like mine this should work fairly well.

 

I do this routine once a day, before I go to bed.

435

436

1. Tie your hair up!

437

2. Using a cleanser, wet your hands and foam it up in your hands. Then put the lather onto your face.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT CLEANSER: I love this cleanser because it is quite gentle but leaves my face feeling very clean. Try and get something that feels fresh when you put it on your face. I would recommend Formula 10.0.06, Cetaphil and Nutrogena. The worst brand I have tried is Clearasil, I find it too harsh and gross on my skin.

438

3. Rinse off and pat dry.

439

4. Use a spot treatment, I’ve only ever used this one as I don’t really find them very effective but they are helpful for stopping developing pimples. Toothpaste works better though if you’ve got a mount zit on your face, leave it on overnight and wash it in the morning.

440

5. This is the part that is do or die. Use a benzoyl peroxide treatment of 2.5% NO MORE THAN2.5% this is the only brand as far as I know that sells it in Australia. It’s like a moisturiser, just gently rub it in all around your face. But it isn’t a moisturiser though, BTW.

I use this when I know I’m getting a breakout or I have one. I don’t really use it in between because I don’t want my skin to rely on it and I’m too lazy. Even after using it once your skin will be a lot smoother. It has the effect of “wearing down” pimples, they just gradually fade into your skin and don’t come back.

It’s kind of pricey, $17 a tube and if you use a generous amount it won’t last you long. You don’t need much, I only use about a pea’s size because I mostly put it on problem areas.

441

6. Moisturise. I’m too lazy to do this step most of the time, but when I do my skin feels like a baby’s butt (ew). Just use a face moisturiser, without SPF.

 

SOMETIMES IN MY ROUTINE:

442

If I exfoliate, I use this. It’s like a mask thing. It works good but my weird blackheads remain.

443

I use this in the shower on my neck and shoulders. I also get pimples on my back and stuff too, which is actually a lot more common than getting it on your face. It works pretty well.

The thing I find most effective in removing pimples on your face and on your body is salt water.

I lived, breathed, and ate the beach last last summer and my skin was so so clear. I was in the water for 3 hours everyday, but still as little as 1 hour is enough to see a massive difference.

I hope this helps! I will write another post in the future about all my acquired knowledge and experience of pimples, because this is like 1/34456765453673 of it.

XX, (P.S I don’t have a fur coat yet)

♚ The IT item ♚

Hi ( Sorry for in-activity I just haven’t been very bloggable lately) ,

You know how there’s like that one item that you see a celebrity wear or whatever, and you just need it in your life??? And you scour the world (your local westfield and a few frantic google searches) looking for that thing? But whatever it is, you just can’t find the perfect one until… (Insert plot twist like you find it but it’s by alexander wang or something and it would cost like 3 million dollars). Well, I would call this an;

IT item (n)

1. an item of clothing or an accessory to which you become emotionally attached to until all your fashion choices revolve around it’s invisible presence

2. So totally out of your league that you can’t even deal

So anyway, I have found my IT item in the presence of a $190 dollar leopard coat by Sportsgirl which was released yesterdayImage

Sighs

My hunt for the perfect faux fur coat is over (and over my budget too). I’ll keep you updated on whether I attain my true love or not, but for now I am just holding onto my theory that no one will buy it for that much money and about a million pairs of the coats will end up on the sale racks of Sportsgirl (pleasepleasepleasegodsoffasionalmightyineedthisinmylifegivemelifeintheformofacoat). And also, who the hell in Australia would need a fur coat?

Here are some pictures of celebrities completely rocking the trend;

I am going to get this coat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!KOEIJORHU(#&GFIHBHWBYIE! Adventure of the FFC (faux fur coat).

Bye for now I’m going to go sell all my stuff on ebay do u think my parents would mind if I sold the car

Basics to Grunge

ImageImageImage

Heyaaaa,

This is an outfit of the day. The look is very much inspired by Harry, and is pretty basic. I originally wore a felt hat with it but I took it off because it was TOOO HOTTOTOTOT! Just showing you how easy it is to turn black leggings and a singlet into a grungey outfit by adding a flannel and some unwashed hair. Scowl optional.

CROP TOP// Supre

FLANNEL// Glebe Markets (It was $2.50- this is why I loveeee this outfit, so basic and for the price of a train ticket you can completely grunge it up.)

LEGGINGS// Country Road

SHOES// Leather Converse

New Room???

ImageImageImageImage

So my dad decided to surpise me by getting new furniture in my room! My old bedroom wasn’t the greatest, I had a loft bed which was really stuffy and ugly so I was really happy when I came and found out that I get to start freshhh 🙂 I didn’t get to choose, my dad and step-mum ordered all the furniture and stuff whilse I was at my mum’s. I haven’t had time to add heaps of nice stuff, like posters, bunting and fairy lights but all in due time. Anyway, here are some snippets of niceness.
