Easy and Beautiful Fairy Lights DIY

I found this fairy light DIY online and loved it so I thought I would post it up for you guys to see! 

Here are my basic fairylights all set up and ready on the back of my sofa.

Then I bought two different sets of cupcake cases in different colours. Don't worry about the sizes- but you do want two colours/patterns you think work together so that you can layer them.

Then you want to fold your cupcake cases into a semicircle and cut a design out - maybe flower petals,  wavy edge, cut outs etc

Finally you want to open your cupcake cases back out and poke a small hole through the centre of each case (I used a pencil to do this). Then layer each two cupcake cases of different colours on top of each other and thread the fairylight bulb through the hole and..... TA-DAH - fairylight flowers!


(You might want to use a little bluetack to keep the cases secure if you are moving the lights. I also thought you could layer up maybe four or five of the plain white cupcake cases to create a really full flower effect).

London at night

I found out how to open my shutter speed for longer so that I could get these softer light filled pictures of London at night. I really loved doing these and I definitely am going to come back and take more photos after dark. Next time I'm going to bring my tripod because when you open the shutter for longer there is a lot more chance for the picture to blur.

A crafty afternoon and some shoe trends

Yesterday was such a rainy, grey blah day that I didn't really feel like doing anything. I decided to try and get motivated with some old fashioned arts and crafts. I keep a box in my house with lot of random arts and crafts supplies like tissue paper, glitter glue, sequins, threads and any pretty bits and pieces I might come across. I also love cutting pictures out of fashion magaines and keeping them for trend and outfit inspration. I scattered them all over the floor and then decided to do a shoe trend moodboard- I found these gorgeous gladiator type strappy sandals from all over the runways and got inspired to try and draw my own shoe- It didn't quite turn out like the image in my head and I got a little carried away with my colouring pencils but I thought I would post it up anyway so that you could see the pictures.
