Christmas organisation routine time.

Ok so i have started to try and get organised for Christmas because it is coming around sooooo quickly its scary! I lurrrvvvveeeee being organised so every year i do the same.
  • Write a list of who am buying for
  • Write a list of ideas of what i could get each person
  • Think of how i am going to give them their presents (i.e. snazzy wrapping paper, boxes with tissue, do it as a kind of pic n mix) i know i think waayyyyyy to much in to it but i love things to look pretty and i like taking time and putting effort in to things =) hehe 
  • Do a little research and find the best place to find what i am getting.
  • Work out if my finances are going to stretch this far (usually dont and have to improvise lol)

So yeah this year i am feeling a lot more creative and was thinking with friends especially and maybe my sister of making them them things to go with and bulk up their Christmas presents =) so its extra special this year. Ideas i have had up to now.....
  • Bracelets - there are a few types i have been reading tutorials on for example the chan luu inspired bracelets and also i found a tutorial for making paper bead bracelets and i wondered how they would turn out.

Chan luu bracelets

I thought by adding some things in their Christmas boxes like this it will give them more of a personal touch =) also i know that one of my friends wants me to make them a Record earring holder like i have previously posted about.

Another idea i had was sock monkeys i love them lol they are the cutest im not sure how good my sewing skills are yet but i may have a go lol.

The other idea i had so far for the girlie's was to make them a magnetic bobby pin (curby grip) holder.

So yeah i will keep you updated with anything i do make. It's a good job they don't read my blog lol.

I'm struggling for the boyfriend a little bit tho so any ideas would be appreciateded lol.

Halloween Nails

I was a little bored and started browsing the internet for halloween costumes and ideas i thought about maybe becoming a mummy  this year.
Me and my friends did a Zombie Slumber Party   last year.

Thats a couple of us last year.

As i was researching my mummy costume i came across these nails....

I thought these were pretty awesome myself and if i am going as a mummy i think this would look pretty cool =)

Some other cool nail art i came across when i was looking too....

Well i haven't posted in  a little while so i thought i would give you a mini update...

Work are totally killing me with shifts at the minute i feel like i live at malmaison its crazy! Im literally becoming nocturnal.

OoOoOo just remembered my ebay update i have managed to sell most of the stuff i put up not for much like but its better than gettting nothing for it =)

Also i kind of maybe bought a few little things with what i earned kind of a wardrobe swap in a way haha.

The first thing i got was a pair of earrings that cost me £1.99

 Then a Topshop Vest for £3.00
 And finally so far... a Miss Selfridge blouse for £10
So yeah thats my purchases so far and i think i made around £30 so not too bad =)

Another thing that has happened which is why i havent really been on here much is my laptop has broken so its in with the clever fixy men getting better so hopefully i will get it back soon =)
