Fringed top

I fringed my Count Von Count T-shirt just the other day. My first 'fringing'. I think that it went well.
I will right a few brief instructions on how I did it so that you can try it if you like it.
It is very simple.

1. Chose the length that you will want the tassels to be by lightly marking where you will but up to on the t-shirt.
2. Cut horizontally up to your marking.
3. Repeat for every centimetre until you have cut all away along the t-shirt.
4. Stretch each tassel just a little bit so that they make a tube shape.
5. Lastly knot the top of each tassel.


Also if you want to add something jazzy you can put beads on the ends of the tassels then knot to keep them on.

I put some butterfly beads on mine.

Anddddd done.

A funky fringed crop top that you can wear this summer.

Magazine Designing FINALLY!

First Mock up Digital Layout
Very rough Idea, Obviously Stolen a Few Pictures Off Google as an Idea

This is very much going to be an unbiased, truthful and Informative Beauty Magazine. I have gone out to so many shops looking for just a down to earth Beauty magazine and I cannot find one anywhere. All I have found is health and beauty sections in magazines, nothing out there for the beauty fanatics. So I'm going to work my fingers to the bone to come up with something really amazing to present to the publishers. 

Start posting me your ideas on what you want to see in it now so I can start fitting it all together in design form.
Send me any reviews, tutorials, Photographs, Art work anything, I'm looking to put in a lot of guest work. Any input you want, message me or e-mail me at:

I'm going to make this happen!

Skins care review

I recently tried out a couple of skins care products. Both very different.
The first one I tried out was 'mudd' original mask. It is a deep cleansing pure clay formula face mask. The one I got came in a squeezey sachet and is usable for up to 10 applications. It completely depends on your preference on thickness of application to how long it last but it is quite a thick clay so you dont really have to paste it on. You can get the 'mudd' original mask in trial sachets which or just one application sachets.
You are advised by the instructions to keep the mask on for 10 - 15 minutes. If you aren't used to wearing clay masks then it might start to feel uncomfortable as it sets as it tightens your skin. You just need to stick with it.

Personally I would advise not to use face masks daily. It's like using exfoliators, if you use it to regularly you can really dry your skins out because you are removing the top layer of your skins which is vital for protecting your new skins which is developing underneath. As you get older and have more mature skin you develop new layers of skins slower so it doesn't effect your skins as much to use masks or exfoliators, in fact it will remove any dead skins cells you have to give you a smoother touch.

The second product I have tried out if the purifying foaming cleanser from 'Dr. nick Lowe Dermotologist' it's is super smoothe and easy to use. You use it after you have washed your face briefly just to soften the skin. You just apply one plunge onto your hand and rub it into your skin. It does have a small amount of exfoliating beads in it but you barely feel them, they just remove any dead skin cells you have on your face. As it isnt a harsh exfoliant the cleanser is suitable to use daily. The directions advise t use once in the morning and then again in the evening. When I bought this product I expected it to be a liquid which foams up when you rub it into your face but it is just foam as it comes out. It is really easy to spread around the face and it is really light and rubs in very easily. After you have applied it yo just rinse it off with Luke warm water. Easy as really. This product you can buy for around £10 which I think is reasonable because it comes in a large bottle so it lasts quite a while, also it feeds a lot of vitamins in to your skin to make it healthier, such asvitimins A, C and E which maximises skins absorption at cellular level. It also adds niacinamide which targets skin which is prone to spots and blemishes and salicylic acid, willow bark and arnica which are anti bacterials.

Soo try them out!!!
