DIY: How to Make a Lemon Sugar Lip Scrub (Vegan)

Lately I’ve really been upping my skincare game. I’ve created a full on morning and night routine, and it has done wonders for my skin. The only thing that was really missing, was a lipscrub. I have permanently dry lips and it annoys me a lot, since I can’t wear most lip products. It just looks weird or feels uncomfortable. So, I wanted to start using a lip scrub so I can prepare my lips a bit more for when I’m wearing lipstick. However, I’m a very budget-driven person. I don’t like to spend a lot of money on beauty products, and a lot of lip scrubs are more on the high end. So why not make one myself? I curated a very simple lip scrub recipe with only three ingredients. It’s easy to make, it tastes great, and it exfoliates my lips as well. What else do you want? Let’s get into making this lemon sugar lip scrub!

DIY: How to Make an Earring Organizer/Holder

I’ve recently been getting more into jewelry and accessorizing my outfits. I never really used earrings as a true accessory, but I got some old hoops from my mum which I’ve suddenly been wearing almost every day. I don’t know, I just feel powerful in hoop earrings. Because I’d been having so much fun wearing different earrings, I ordered a few more off of AliExpress. This also means that my collection is getting pretty big, and pretty unorganized. I currently have my earrings in a little jar, and it takes me a few minutes to pick the right ones and find their other halves as well. So, I wanted to get an organizer that fits my needs. However, almost all earring organizers were either just for hanging earrings, or they included room for necklaces as well. I did not want that. I wanted one that could fit all my earrings, even my studs, but also just my earrings, so not any other jewelry. Of course, they do exist, but they can be quite expensive. So why not make one myself? I managed to make a fun one that fit my needs exactly, so I thought I’d show you guys how I did that. Let’s get into making our own earring organizer!

My Nightmare Before Christmas Tree!

I haven’t really posted any Christmas related articles yet. Yes, I’ve done the Advent Calendar review, but that isn’t REALLY Christmas. So I thought it would be fun to get a bit in the Christmas spirit and show you guys my tree. Usually my little tree is very boring, with white and green ornaments to fit my room. This year I decided to switch things up and decorate my tree in a way that fits me perfectly: Jack Skellington-style!

Today I’ll show you all the stationary I’ve bought lately. Be prepared, it’s a big haul!

DIY Stickers

IMG_8350

Een tijdje geleden was mijn beste vriendin jarig en ik wilde graag wat speciaals geven voor haar verjaardag. Ze had me al een keer voor de grap gemeld dat ze graag stickers wilde en ineens kreeg ik een goed idee: ik maak zelf stickers van al haar rare foto’s. Ik heb toen echt gigantisch veel stickers gemaakt, ook met haar favo bands en onze inside jokes enzovoorts. Het was echt heel simpel om ze te maken, maar wel heel leuk en het cadeau viel ook erg in de smaak, daarom leek het mij leuk om jullie te laten zien hoe je zelf stickers maakt. Kijk je mee?

Back to school: desk make-over

IMG_4603header Al een hele tijd staat mijn bureau volgepakt met allemaal spullen die ik nooit gebruik. Pakjes kaarten, lege flesjes, oplaadkabels en ik weet niet hoe veel oude stencils van school. Ik heb een hele regenboog aan kleuren op mijn bureau, en mooi is het zeker niet. Daarom besloot ik eens alles op mijn bureau op te ruimen en opnieuw ‘in te richten’. Kijk je mee hoe ik dat heb gedaan?

DIY school supplies: Papier houder/map

IMG_4657

Je herkent het vast wel. Een grote stapel verfrommelde papiertjes op de hoek van je bureau of tussen je boeken. Je hebt geen idee welk papiertje bij welk vak hoort, of het nog belangrijk is en of je het nog gaat gebruiken. Ik besluit dan altijd maar tot het einde van het jaar te wachten om alles uit te zoeken. Dan weet ik tenminste zeker dat ik niet nog één van die honderd papiertjes  nodig  heb. Ik vind het maar verschrikkelijk, die stapel papier. Ik wilde dus graag een map waarin ik al mijn papieren kan doen, gesorteerd per vak. Natuurlijk kun je deze gewoon kopen, maar ik had zin om iets creatiefs te doen en besloot er zelf één te maken. Vandaag laat ik zien hoe ik dat heb gedaan.
