half top knot

Half Top Knot/Half Bun

I was almost convinced that the only people watching my hairstyle videos were my family and friends (who were basically being forced/bribed to do it). Plus the people who were given no choice in the matter thanks to Facebook auto-play. But when I started getting requests from you guys to do specific hairstyles, I realised…

Super Easy Pop Art Nails

My previous attempts at nail art haven’t exactly been the stuff of legends. Unless, of course, there’s a legend in the nail world about totally botching up your nails and then wondering why you even bothered >.> So, I didn’t have very high hopes when I decided to give nail art another shot. However, I…

July Monthaversary Giveaway

I got lazy and didn’t do a blog post about last month’s giveaway. Now there’s a month missing in the list of giveaway posts on the blog and i’ll just have to live with it. Tiny rant about self over. Let’s get to the reason you’re really here (I know it’s not for me, it’s…

I did manage to squeeze in an intense week of reading…

DIY: Antler Crown & House Banners From Game of Thrones

The time has arrived, puddings, for the final DIY in the Game of Thrones series. And no, I don’t have an explanation for referring to you as puddings. But, ask yourself, do you really need one? (an explanation, that is, not a pudding, everyone needs a pudding). As usual, I have digressed from the topic at…

DIY: Iron Throne From Game of Thrones

So, okay, this Game of Thrones-inspired Iron Throne isn’t exactly a sword by sword replica of the original, by any stretch of the imagination (just keepin’ it real). However, I think it looks pretty cool in its own right. It’s quite possible that my opinion is a little biased considering the amount of time and effort I…
