With Mother’s Day just a couple of days away, I hope you all have something lovely planned for your special Mum!
With so many lovely treats we can spoil our Mother’s with, from buying her all time favourite perfume,chocs and flowers. Or the route I love to go down is the craft gifts, heartfelt, time and energy always shows my mum how much I appreciate her. If you’re like me and don’t mind getting the place in a bit of a mess for a little while, have a nose at Pinterest I find it the best place to get my craft ideas!
With Halloween fast approaching everyone wants to have the best and most original costume ideas. This can get even harder when you’re trying to make this a couples thing. Be it two friends or boy and girl it can be pretty tough to get that perfect balance of current and clever. I’ve put together a few different ideas for this year to help you get you thinking…
Garth and Wayne from Waynes World are simple to recreate and an instantly recognisable duo.
Batman and Robin are a timeless pair who have gone through years of reinvention. The most recognisable still being the 60’s TV show. The girls can also go the ‘sexy’ route with this….Not that I’m a fan of the ‘sexy’ route and I prefer a little more gore to gamey.
With the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles making a comback this year April O’Neill and a Teenage Mutant Hero Turtle combo could be just the ticket.
1950’s grey scale is one of my favourite ideas as is visually really cool and pretty simple from a makeup point of view as all you really use are combinations of black and white facepaint and shadows.
Their relationship has been a topic for discussion for many years but there are no ‘happy couple’ quite like our Sesame Street pals Bert and Ernie 🙂
Anyone a fan of Juno?Nothing says pop culture reference like dressing up as Juno and Paulie Bleaker.
Ben Stiller and Russian Fran Stalinovskovichdavidovitchsky from Dodgeball are my personal Favourite 🙂 , bringing a little humour and fun to Halloween.
Mork and Mindy may be a popular one this year in tribute to the recently passed Robin Williams.
For the boys…why not go for Nidge and Fran, two of our favourite Love Hate troublemakers?!
Finally, the all time classic of Sandy and Danny from Grease will always be a winner for me 🙂 I’m not sure if it’s a generational thing but I don’t think I’ve seen as many of them around this last few years.
I hope these help and if there are any ideas that you have we would love to hear them!
I’m a big fan of nail varnishes and like to keep them painted at all times. I do get frustrated though with most varnishes as they have a tendency to chip quite easily. When shellac first came in, I was delighted! Finally a nail varnish that would last. Of course there were some down sides to this, the expense, as well as having to book a salon in advance! Then came along Red Carpet Nails, a fantastic do it at home kit which Emma reviewed already here, but it was still a tad on the expensive side. Well finally there is an at-home solution for us girls on a budget! Thanks Essence! Read More
