DIY|Room Decor

I love making things - it's fun to do and you always end up making something unique and special. I'm really excited to show you a few ideas of easy crafts that you could use to decorate your room. I really enjoyed making them all.
Picture String

This first one is so easy but looks really cute and creative when you've finished. In my room, I have one made from ribbon with photos of me with friends and family, but I've made this string one up to show you the idea. I used Polariod photos here - I love the way the spotty ones look! All you need to do is decorate some wooden pegs (I painted mine and used stick on gems) and use them to clip your photos along some string, ribbon, or bunting. I strung mine across my bed. I love the way that you can change up the photos reguarly and add more as you go.
Pringles Tube Storage Containers
I made these out of a used up Pringles tube. All you need to do it cut out your shapes out of the tube and cover it in decorative paper, using glue or tape. Also, try and keep the silver rim on show - this just gives it a nicer finish. I'm really pleased with how these went! You could use them as a desk tidy or for storage on your dressing table. 
Foil Door Sign
This was a really fun one to make! All I did was use Sharpie pens to colour a sheet of tin kitchen foil. I then scrunched it up and cut out the shapes. I wrote out 'Beth's Room' on a piece of card, but used coloured foil for the 'B' and a heart shape. I love the way that the foil adds a splash of colour and a 3D effect. 
Triangle Zentangle Canvas
This last one is probably my favourite! All that I did was use strips of tape to make out the triangle shapes. This just makes sure that your triangles have a clean edge and that you can't go over the lines. I used acrilic paint to cover the triangles. I then used some paint pens to draw in the zentangle designs.

Zoella Beauty|Foam Sweet Foam Cleansing Shower Gel

A while ago, I got some new Zoella Beauty products from Superdrug - one of which being the Foam Sweet Foam shower gel. I love reviewing all things Zoella Beauty - the products are always so lovely, and the packaging very cute and pretty. For a bit of background, Zoella, aka Zoe Sugg, is very well known for her extremely popular blog, YouTube channel (with over ten million subscribers), Girl Online book series - and now her Zoella Beauty range in SuperDrug.

First of all, Foam Sweet Foam is another of Zoe's products that has gorgeous packaging and design. It's contained in a tall bottle with a pale blue flip-lid. The pearly-pink colour of the product glows through the bottle, giving it a very pretty pink tint. As always, in the centre on the product sticker is the swirly Zoella Beauty logo with the title of the shower gel below. This is in a circle, which is outlined in a bright pink lace pattern. The entire sticker is a pastel blue, with a lovely swirly design. I just think it looks so sweet and would definitely rate it ten out of ten for packaging.

The product smells very sweet and fruity - it's made with extracts of blueberry and acai. It's a refreshing scent - perfect to help you feel more awake! I love it. Another bonus is that all of the Zoella Beauty products are cruelty-free, so no animal testing.

The product itself is a very pretty pink. The bottle is filled high and there's lots of shower-gel inside, so I think it's going to be long-lasting. It's really nice to use, very fresh and fruity. I also find it can double up as a bubble bath, creating lots of foamy bubbles.

Five Books of February|Collab With Daisy

It's another collaboration today - this time with Daisy, from DramaQueenDaisy. She's only just started blogging, and has some really lovely posts - go over and say hello!

We've decided to talk to you about five books that we were loving during February. This time of year is perfect for reading - you can snuggle up under a blanket, away from the cold, with your favourite book and a yummy hot chocolate. To find out Daisy's picks, go over using the link here to view her version of this post.
My first choice would be Love Lessons by Jacqueline Wilson. I've loved the Jacqueline Wilson books since I was seven or eight. The teen ones are really nice reads as well, with really interesting story lines. Prue, from Love Lessons, is fourteen. Her father teaches her, but he's very unpredictable and scares Prue and her little sister. When he has a stroke, Prue has to go to a school. The girls have never mixed, or even spoken to, other kids their ages before. It's all about friendship, changes, and fitting in - as well as dealing with her father at home.
Second up, Letters to Cathy by Cathy Cassidy. This is more of a dip-in kind of book, but really nice to read. It's full of letters about problems people are having and things they're going through - and Cathy's answers!
The next one that I'd pick would be Deenie, by Judy Blume. This is the first book that I read by this author, and it's my favourite out of her books. It's about a girl called Deenie who's mum wants her to be a model - but she isn't sure that that's what she'd like to do. When she is diagnosed with scoliosis, and she has to wear a brace to correct her spine, her world seems to fall apart. On top of that, it's a story about friendship, family, and school.
The fourth book that I'd choose would be The Chocolate Box Secrets, by Cathy Cassidy. This is another dip-in book - this time stuffed full of crafts, fashion, and recipies. It's split into seasons - so in Winter you might find a recipe for a yummy hot chocolate, but in Summer they'll be smoothie ideas and summer clothes to create.

The last book I'd choose would be Girl Online by Zoe Sugg. This is one of my favourite books. It's a nice easy read, but with a really gripping and interesting story. Penny is so relatable and had me laughing throughout the book. The cover is so pretty, too - I love the fairy lights!

February Favourites

It's March, already! I'm really excited to talk you through my favourites from Febraury. I've got a couple of things I really liked last month. What were you loving in February?

The first thing that I'd like to mention is Aussie Frizz Miracle shampoo. I really like this because it leaves your very soft and tangle-free. It also says that it's for 'please sit still hair' - and that's so true! It stops any fly aways and you can leave your hair down without it falling over your face or getting in the way.
Next up, 'Marshmellow Skye' by Cathy Cassidy. This is a book that I was reading during February. It's part of The Chocolate Box Girls series, and I loved it. It's like it's tangled up between the past and present. It's about a sister called Skye. The story is a mix bewteen family life and friendship, as well as being to desperate to find out about one of her relatives pasts.

The last thing I'd like to talk about is Invisibobbles. These are basically hair bobbles that are made out of a plastic spiral wire. They look a little bit like a telephone wire. These are so great for if you have thick or curly hair because they don't get tangled or knotted, and they won't damage your hair either. These ones are from Superdrug.

What were your February Favourites?
I'd also like to add that I got a Twitter account for my blog.
