DIY Candle Holders

I’m making a lot of the decorations for my 21st myself. DIY saves a lot of money and is fun! I’ve been enjoying getting out in the sun and using my creativity to make things!
Here’s a tutorial on how to make your own lace design candle holders.
Don’t forget to lay some newspaper down to avoid a big mess! It also helps to work outside if possible.
You will need:
Spray Paint, Lace, Jars
Hold the lace against your jar. Position spray can about 15cm away, then spray!!

Repeat all over the jar. Your jar will now look like this:

Add a tea light or votive candle!

And you’re finished!

MTV EMA 2011

I was rather disappointed with the Red (Pink) Carpet looks at the MTV EMA which showed tonight in NZ. 
Selena Gomez’s outfit was definitely my favourite. The lace, the colour, the tulle!
I found her Beau Justin Bieber was best dressed male. Although he can do no wrong in my eyes!
I absolutely love Hayden Panettiere, although I am a little undecided about her choice in dress. It’s nice but something about it just isn’t quite right.
I hate to say this but I dislike Lady Gaga more and more each event or show she attends. I used to love her! She’s getting a little too wild for my taste.

nail tag

I’ve never done a tag post before but I saw this one on and thought i’d post it!

 I love fun Nail Polishes like OPI Black Shatter and OPI DS Extravagance!

  1. What’s your favorite nail polish company?
  2. Glitter or no glitter?
  3. OPI or china glaze or Essie?
  4. When do you start to take off your nail polish?
  5. What’s your favorite color on your nails?
  6. Darks or brights? 
  7. What are you wearing on your nails right this moment?
  8. Matte nails—in or out?
  9. French manicures?
  10. Favorite fall color?
  1. OPI
  2. I love glitter! I always wear a glitter top coat on my left ring finger and right middle finger.
  3. OPI
  4. When I want to change the colour!
  5. Oh this is a hard one! It usually depends on what I’m wearing. I like to coordinate my nails with my outfit. I guess black (with glitter of course), as that goes with everything!
  6. Brights in summer, Darks in winter/fall, Pastels in spring
  7. Nude colour (with glitter)
  8. In! I think matte everything is super cute! It looks great on nails, foundation, lipstick etc
  9. I ♥ French manicures! I think the traditional pink/nude base with white tips should be left for occasions such as prom and weddings but colourful french manicures are an awesome modern twist on the traditional look and are super fun and in right now!
  10. Anything deep and dark! My top 3 would be Honk if You Love OPI, I Brake For Manicures & Don’t Mess with OPI.

it feels like summer

 Yesterday was such a beautiful day. I can certainly feel summer coming. It wasn’t warm enough for a dip in the ocean but was certainly a good day to be outdoors. I started the morning with an energetic walk. It feels so good to build up a sweat. After cleaning the house, my wonderful man and I went for lunch on the beach. We then headed to a carpark (where above pictures were taken) for a little driving lesson. Nearly 6 years too late* I finally I have my learners drivers licence. The BF attempted to teach me how to drive his car. Let’s just say I became very good at stalling, bunnyhopping and rolling backwards. Between you and me I think I’ll stick to learning in an automatic. As much as I love my BF’s love for his car, a manual with a racing clutch (I don’t even know what that is but I try to repeat his terminology so he knows I care haha) just isn’t for me!

Outfit Details:
Blazer, Top & Shorts: Glassons
Shoes: Chuck Taylors
*In NZ there are 3 stages in getting your driver’s licence; Learners, Restricted, Full. I’m nearly 21 and back when my peers were getting their licences you needed to be 15 to get your learners (it is now 16 though). Anyway I have passed my test and can now focus on practicing driving and getting my restricted licence in 6 months time.
