My Meal Diary! Sunday 28th May

Hello! So, I have decided to share with you every day this week the previous day’s meals. I am on a mini holiday right now, so thought it might be fun to share what I eat each day! I have laid out the week in my sketch pad and will upload the previous day’s food in the form of pictures of my sketch pad. Thank you for reading this so far and I hope you enjoy!

Sunday 28th May

Whilst I was drawing the layout for my diary, my pen slipped and I ended up with a little line coming off of it …. So, I decided to add a little ‘life lesson’ that when life doesn’t go to plan, you can always fix it! Well, it does depend what you have done, but anyway I added these little lines to ALL of the boxes and had each box’s lines going opposite ways! I think it turned out okay in the end.


Thank you for reading, please leave your opinion on this type of post in the comments!

Rose Gold eyeshadow look – Naked 3 review

Hello! Today I will be sharing my thoughts and opinions on the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette and explaining my go to look! The Naked 3 palette is a pink and rose gold based collection of eyeshadows and is my favourite palette at the moment!

http://www.urbandecay.co.uk/en_GB/palettes/naked3/UD409.html
The packaging 

The packaging is this beautiful rose gold textured casing with gold writing on. It is sturdy and durable and I haven’t dropped it (yet!) but I feel if I did, the shadows would be okay!


The eyeshadows 

The actual eyeshadows are in a wide array of colours – as I mentioned before pink and rose gold based. Three of the shadows are matte and the other nine shimmer. It could do with a couple more darker mattes as there is only really one you can use in your crease. The pigment is all round good, some have better colour pay off than others but all of them are beautiful! 


The look

First of all, I took the shade ‘Nooner’ which is a matte cool toned brown and placed that in my crease. This shade is the only one you can really put in your crease, as the other two mattes are paler. ‘Nooner’ has a good colour to it and is easy to blend.


Next, I took ‘Liar’ in the outer part of the lid. This is a slightly paler, shimmer version of ‘Nooner’ but it worked well in the outer lid. The pigmentation was good and it stayed nicely.

Then, I put the shade ‘Limit’ in the inner part of my lid. This is a pale pink matte shade with an okay pigment, but not the strongest colour ever. 


I then put the shade ‘Trick’ onto the center of my kid. ‘Trick’ is my favourite shadow from the whole palette as it is the most beautiful rose gold shimmer. The pigmentation and colour pay off is out of this world (!) and it is so smooth and almost creamy – making it blend beautifully!


Finally, I put ‘Dust’ in my inner corner. This is a pressed glitter and gives an extra sparkle to your eyes! ✨

The swatches/lasting power

I swatched ‘Nooner’, ‘Liar’, ‘Trick’ and ‘Limit’ in the morning, so that is the first photo and then the second is in the evening.


Nooner lasted the best! The other colours have a bit of shimmer left to them but are pretty much gone. Although, they were on my hand, so went through a lot more than my eyelids. I wore this look on my eyes as well and all of the colours are clearly still there, so they last well!

Thank you!

Craft on a budget! Collab with Tabi Bee


Hello! Today I will be sharing with you some tips and ideas for crafting on a budget! This post is a collab with the amazing Tabi from Busy Bee. Tabi makes the most amazing crafty posts, so follow her and read her half of the post if you haven’t already. 💗

We picked a topic and wrote our own take on it, so it won’t be the same post on both blogs!

My Tips

Buy multipack supplies

When crafting on a budget, you should always try to get the most for your money. For example, if you want to buy pink, blue and purple paint for one project, go into your nearest craft store or look online and instead of buying a big bottle of each, buy smaller bottles in a multipack. This often works out cheaper!

Amazon!!!

For any supplies you need, trust me, Amazon is your best friend! Cheap supplies with good delivery cost and speed, you can’t really go wrong!

amazon.com

Set a few limits 

When you we in the craft shop, gazing at the brushes of your dreams, be a little more realistic with yourself. Do you really need that set of 24 brushes that cost £30? Or could you just settle for a couple of single brushes at £1.50 each? Be reasonable and think of how much you will use them. If you are really getting into painting and want a big set, you don’t necessarily need the ‘best’ brand.

Use what you have at home

Don’t waste your money buying lovely looking mason jars at a few pounds each when you have some perfectly good jam jars at home. If you are going to decorate them, does it really matter that the brand engraving is perfect?

Use the supermarket

If you need something simple like a glue stick or scissors, then Tesco own brand is just as good and half the price!

A few budget friendly crafts

Jam Jar Pen Pot

This is such a easy craft, simply soak the jar in warm water to remove the labels and paint with acrylic paints and once it is dry you can add on words such as ‘pens’ or ‘Fleur’s Pencils’ or I did on where I stuck on a Harry Potter potion label saying ‘magic wands’ which I love! I also once made a ombré pink make up brush holder with eyelashes drawn on with a sharpie!


A quotebook 

Simply write out your favourite quotes on A5 or smaller pieces of paper, hole punch them in the corner and tie together with pretty coloured wool. Whenever you deed cheering up or inspiration, flick through it! You could write the quotes in different colours/fonts and add little doodles to make it note interesting!

Jewellery Hanger

I made this jewellery hanger a few years ago and you will need supplies like wood, screws and a drill, but it was just using old things around he house so I suppose it counts?!

I drilled 9 evenly spaced holes on two rows into the wood and attached old cupboard handles from the kitchen which are all in different colours with either spots (in the top row) or stripes (on the bottom row). I then attached string and hung it onto my wall! I love it for displaying all of my necklaces!
Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed my tips and ideas and hope you are inspired to try some out! Don’t forget to read Tabi’s post!
