DIY: Crop Top

Hey y'all 

After I did a OOTD post with my maxi skirt and a diy crop top (which you can check out here), a few people asked how I made the crop top so here's how! Its really simple and takes like 5 seconds!

1. Put on the top that you want to cropify

2. Gather all the material to the front so its tight round your body

3. Grab a hair bobble and tie the material like your tying a ponytail

4. Tuck the ponytail into the top

From the maxi skirt OOTD
5. Hey presto! A crop top!

Also, I recently thought I would start a shopping series! I'll basically just be posting images and prices of items that I think are great buys! But each post will be from a different shop! What do you guys think about that? :)

OOTD: Blue Maxi Skirt

Hey y'all

This summery OOTD features the gorgeous blue maxi skirt that I showed in my Another Miniature Haul Post, and a DIY crop top that I made! Maybe I'll do a post on how I made it? What do you guys think?

If I'm feeling less brave and don't want to show my tummy section I'll just un-cropify the top and tuck it in!

Another Miniature Haul! - Steve's, Topshop, Barry M and New Look

Hey y'all

As I mentioned in my previous post, I went shopping AGAIN today! And again I didn't buy much but I'm very happy with what I bought! Also in my last post the quality of pictures were HORRIBLE because I couldn't use my normal camera but its back now so I hope you enjoy the better quality!

I had to stand up on my bed to get the full picture!

I love the pocket detail on the skirt!

 1. Barry M Nail Polish in Yellow - I've been trying to get some more bright nail polishes, so a bright yellow is an excellent addition! - £2.99

2. Pink Jesus Bracelet and White Union Jack Bracelet from Steve's - I just reliased that most of you won't have heard of Steve's! Its just this little shop in Walsall Town Centre that sells lots of jewellery, sleek makeup, wigs and other bits and bobs! - 79p each bracelet

3. Topshop Ear Cuff - I can not get enough of the Topshop jewellery! This is my first purchase of an ear cuff and I have to say I'm pretty happy, I'll be wearing a lot this summer! - £2.50 on sale

4. Blue Maxi Skirt from New Look - This is may favourite purchase! I think this is so beautiful! And I love it with my DIY Fringe Top and I love the look of colour blocking yellow and blue, maybe I'll make an OOTD about it? We'll see!

And watch out for a post coming soon about styling patterned hotpants! I hope you enjoy it! :) And what do you guys think about a post on my skincare routine? Leave some advice in the comments please! :D

P.S. These are my colour blocking nails which include the tangerine colour I bought yesterday!

Miniature Haul: Dorothy Perkins, Topshop and Barry M

Hey y'all

Yesterday, Me and my friend Annie, who has a blog too, went shopping for a few bits and bobs and of course I had to show you guys! We were shopping for nearly 6 hours, but I only bought 4 things! So thats why I called it the miniature haul because I only bought a blush, nail polish and 2 rings! Here they are!

My Miniature Haul Items

As you can kind of see, I've already tried it out!

Thats with a base coat, 2 coats of the colour and a clear top coat

Sorry about the quality! :)

 1. A Topshop Cream Blush in Prime Time, which is a vivid pink! As soon as I got home I tried it on and loved it because its a cream blush when you apply it it isn't that strong but you can easily build on it if you want a stronger colour and the polka dot packaging is really cute but as you can see the dots are already rubbing off! - £6

2. A Barry M Nail Polish in Tangerine (136) and the colour is true to its name, a bright orange! This will probably all be finished by the end of summer because I am loving wearing brights this summer! -£2.99

3. A Topshop Ring, I am a huge fan of statement rings and this certainly makes one, a statement that is :) It looks really cute and edgy, as all Topshop jewellery does! - £2.50 on sale

4. A Dorothy Perkins Ring, I use this as a thumb ring and it is so cute for summer because of the lovely hippy symbols! - £2 on sale

I am actually going shopping again tomorrow so if I buy anything I'll blog about it :D I might be buying some more of the topshop jewellery because they are BEAUTIFUL and currently on sale, so the best of both worlds! :D

TAG: My Perfect Imperfections

Hey y'all

This is one of my favourite tags because everybody has little things that they want to change about themselves and the only way to get over them is to accept them! So here are 3 of the things I would love to change about body and 3 things that I love about my body :D

3 Imperfections:
1. My legs - My thighs are chunky but when I say chunky I mean chun-kkyyy!!!
2. My hair - I want longer hair! I want to be able to 'whip my hair back and forth'!
3. My bottom - It is really big, sometimes I think its too big!

3 Loves:
1. My legs - Yeah their in both! Its because even though I think my thighs are chunky, I like the shape of my legs because they have curves :D
2. My bottom - This is also a love hate relationship because even though my ass is large, I love that about it, it really fills out my shorts and jeans!
3. My fingernails - This may sound a bit odd but I have large nails so its easier for me to do nice designs on them :)

Everyones tagged! I wanna hear your versions so if you do the tag leave a link to your blog and I'll check it out! Or you can just comment with your 3 imperfections and your 3 loves :D

DIY: Fringe Top

Hey y'all

As I mentioned in my OOTD: Zumba Class post, I have been working on another DIY video for you guys! A fringe top! I love these and I have been planning to buy one but then I thought why buy one when I can make one!! Enjoy :D

1. I measured how short I wanted the top to be
2. I made a cut of that length. I used fabric scissors but you could probably use any type 
3. I then kept on making slits in the top of the same length, making sure I caught the front and back of the fabric
4. I tried this on but I thought the tassels were too long so I cut them shorter
5. I then thought it would look nicer if I cut the slits higher in the middle
6. I still wasn't happy though! I cut the bottom part of the fringes to match the rise of the slits in the middle
7. I then thought the tassels were too long, again! So I cut them again and voila the finished product:

This was the first time I made this so there was a lot of trial and error involved but I'm quite pleased with the final product! Leave a comment below with your thoughts! :)

And what do you guys think about a video of how I style patterned hotpants?
