Weekly Favourite

Each week I’m going to tell you about my favourite thing; whether it be a person, product or something else.

My favourite this week is hats.

The weather in Britain is absolutely awful at the moment so hats have been essential for keeping warm on the freezing, windy days.

This hat costs £14 from Oasis.

Holiday Haul

I recently went on holiday to Greece for a week and bought some lovely things that I thought I would share with you.

The first thing I got was this gorgeous leather bag. It cost 60 euros which is great as it’s amazing quality and will never go out of style.

I got this necklace for around 4-5 euros and absolutely love it, it goes with everything and looks a lot more expensive than it is.

This piece cost only 3 euros and gives the effect of wearing more than one bracelet as it wraps around your wrist three times. The blue stones also add a gorgeous pop of colour to a plain outfit.

 I got one of these sponges 9 years ago when I last went to Greece and absolutely loved it so I thought I would get another. It cost 3.50 and works amazing at gently removing dead skin.

I’ve been using olive oil in my hair as a mask to make it soft and shiny, so when I saw these soaps I knew I had to try them to see if the oil worked well on my skin too. It cost 3 euros with the pumice stone which is a great deal.

This bow ring is absolutely beautiful, and it only cost me 3.50!  It’s quite a statement ring which means that you don’t need to wear a lot of other jewellery with it.

The colours and patterns in this 5 euro scarf mean that it will go with a lot of outfits and will also be perfect for transitioning into autumn.

These light pink high tops look gorgeous with tanned legs and go with almost any outfit. They only cost me 29 euros which is a great saving as I would have paid over £40 in England.

I love this ankle bracelet, it looks best when worn with my converse and a pair of shorts. It only cost me 4 euros too, which is a great price.

Overall, I think I got some lovely pieces and great deals.
Have any of you bought anything on your holidays?

DIY Bows

Bows come in a variety of different sizes, colours and patterns, which makes them a great way to accessorise any outfit. They are also extremely simple and quick for you to make yourself.

The first thing you will need to do is purchase a ribbon with the width and colour you desire.Now you need to decide how long you want your bow to be, and cut the ribbon twice the size of that as it will be folded in half. Next hold onto both ends of the ribbon and put them together so that they are slightly overlapping each other in a loop, like this :

Now you have a few options; you can either glue the ends together in that loop, use double sided tape or simply pin it together.This means that it will be easier to hand stitch. You then get any coloured thread(as you wont be able to see it) and hand sew the two ends together to make sure it does not come apart.

Depending on the thickness of the ribbon you are using, you will have to cut a strip to go around the middle of your bow and tie the whole thing together. It is a good idea to cut the ribbon three times the thickness you want, this means you can fold the two edges under to prevent fraying. However, this depends on the size of your bow. If you have chosen to fold you the two edges under you will need to stick them together with a glue or double sided tape and then put a few stitches in to keep it together.

Once the strip which goes around the middle of the bow is your desired size you can get the bow so far and push the seam of it down into the middle so that it will be hidden by the other piece of ribbon. It is up to you whether you put a few stitches to keep it all together.

Lastly you get the ends of the small piece of ribbon and sew them together like you did with the larger piece. It is a good idea to wrap it around the larger piece first as it will give you an idea of how tight you need it. Then you simply push it onto the bow you have made so far and move it around until it sits neatly in the centre.

You are now able either slip a clip or small headband through the back of the bow on the smaller piece of ribbon. You could even put a safety pin through and pin it to an item of clothing.
