DIY | MARBLE MAC

I have always loved all things marble, so when I saw this amazing idea on Henriette Amlie Kalbekken’s blog Design Lykke I knew I had to make it my next DIY project!

WHAT YOU NEED: 

– Marble contact paper

– Scissors

– A sharp craft knife

– A Macbook

HOW TO:

Step one // Place the contact paper over your Macbook and roughly cut it to the same size.

Step two // Remove the protective seal from the back of the contact paper and slowly stick it to your Macbook (using a ruler to flatten the contact paper as you go helps to prevent air bubbles).

Step three // Use a sharp craft knife to cut around the edges of your Macbook.

Step four // Cut around the Apple logo and peel it off (if you have trouble seeing the edges of the logo you can lift your laptop lid slightly so the light shines through.

FAVOURITES | MARCH

March Favourites

hydraluron

Indeed Labs Hydraluron // Little did I know, this bad boy has been the key piece missing from my skincare routine. This is the secret weapon for dehydrated skin, I have only been using it for a week and my skin is already looking plumper and healthier! Apply twice a day post toner and pre moisturiser for ultimate hydration.

M&M’s Crispy Speckled Eggs // It is nearly Easter which means the release of multiple scrumptious but limited treats. However, these aren’t just any easter goodies.. they are the most delicious morsels any candy/chocolate fan could wish for.  I am truly dreading the end of Easter when the supermarkets stop selling these little pieces of heaven. Please don’t take them away from me!!

by terry

By Terry Cover-Expert Foundation // I am on an endless hunt for the perfect foundation and I think my latest discovery of the By Terry Cover-Expert has brought me preeetty close. It is so luxurious and has the most amazing velvet texture that glides over the skin and masks imperfections like nobody’s business. Great work Terry, I’ll definitely be adding more of your gems to my collection!

Maurie & Eve Boss Skirt // Of course I had to include this velvet beauty. I hunted far and wide for the sold out in minutes Maurie and Eve Boss skirt and finally managed to get my hands on one – compliments of my very kind and patient Australian based Aunty (thank you Aunty Anna!).

 

essie

Essie Find Me An Oasis // So fresh and so clean clean. Remember my post about my obsession with the colour duck egg blue? Enough said.

WINTER FOOTWEAR

This post was inspired by one of my lovely readers who is in need of some Winter shoe inspiration! She requested a post on what to look for and where to go to find some ‘must have’ winter footwear.

Finding that perfect pair of Winter shoes can be a challenge for even the most seasoned shopper, so I have put together a few styles that are currently on my wishlist and can be found on some of my favourite online shopping websites – all with an extensive selection to browse through! (see links below)

I hope it helps! xx

2014 JACKET TRENDS

As much as I love summer, I have noticed that the temperature is beginning to fall which has got me (secretly) excited because it means I can start thinking about my Autumn/Winter wardrobe. When these cooler months roll around, there is nothing more crucial than that outer layer, that outfit topper – the jacket.

I have put together a collection of my favourite jacket trends from the runway and some similar picks to help you master each look. Yip, I’ve got you covered (pun intended).
