Custom Stickers With StickerApp (& Giveaway Closed).

Thursday, 9 November 2017

I don't think you realise how much you can actually do with stickers. The possibilities are endless... this sounds a bit random doesn't it? Haha, let me start from the beginning. A little while ago StickerApp contacted me and asked if I wanted to try out some of their custom stickers. At first I was like, what could I do with stickers? So I visited their site and I was surprisingly so inspired. 

I decided to have a look through the sticker library first, just to get an idea of what I was working with. This is basically a part of the site where you can buy stickers designed by artists. I picked a few stickers from a couple different designers, including Bobby BrownMuskegon, Amity Price and Anna Hulda Bergman. I got a few for my nephew, he loves anything to do with monsters. I also got a couple to add to birthday presents and birthday cards, it gives them a nice personal touch.

After browsing through the sticker library (for far too long) I decided that I wanted to have a go at customising some myself. I wanted to go with my blog logo, which is the prk scribble you see on my banner. I downloaded my image, picked my cut, size, material (gloss coated vinyl) and the quantity that I wanted. It is literally as easy as that. 
When my package arrived I was so surprised with the quality of the stickers! I didn't expect anything bad from StickerApp, but for the price the stickers were just more than I expected! I feel like custom stickers would be a perfect alternative to business cards. Well, I have been handing my blog stickers out like business cards anyway haha.

I am also holding a giveaway with StickerApp, giving one of you guys the chance to win £25 worth of stickers (*Ends 17th November*). To enter simply make sure you follow me and stickerappinspo on Instagram and comment down below, just letting me know you have entered. Feel free to tag your friends on Insta too! Good Luck!

How would you use your stickers if you won?

The Velvet Bag.

Wednesday, 1 November 2017

I feel like I am seeing mustard and velvet everywhere at the minute. Clothing, accessories, home decor... you name it! So when I saw the mustard and velvet combo in bag form, I had to grab it. This across body bag (or shoulder bag, you choose) is from good old Primarni. I can't actually remember how much it was. It was either £7 or £9, which is a complete bargain. The quality is pretty good too, especially the chain, it has a nice feel and weight to it.
The stitching kind of reminds me of the YSL know, with the like V/arrow design. I think they deffo got the inspiration from that or maybe even Gucci.

With 'trend' pieces I don't like to spend a lot of money as I do tend to get bored of them pretty easily (although, I don't think I will ever tire of this beaut) so Primark is always the first place I head to. They have some amazing pieces in at the minute, I definitely need another trip to pick up some more autumnal bits.

Are you into the mustard and/or velvet trend?

Happy Halloween.

Tuesday, 31 October 2017

Halloween is my favourite time of the year, well its probably on par with Christmas but its still up there. It gives me an excuse to sit in my room watching Halloween films, whilst eating sweets and playing with my sfx make up. Last Halloween I went to Farmageddon which was bloody terrifying. This year I went on a tour around Smithills Hall which is like an old manor house. Lets just say some weird *excuse my french* shit happened there. 

I haven't really had the chance to dress up this year, but I did manage to have a play with my special effects make up. I used scar wax for the first time, which isn't the easiest thing to work with but hopefully I will get the hang of it as it does give the make up a realistic look. 

Anyway, that was my Halloween. What did you guys get up to?

Finding A Space That Works For You.

Thursday, 24 August 2017

It can be hard to create a space that works as both a bedroom and creative zone. Whether its somewhere to do your make up, to work or a cosy reading nook, there needs to be a divide between that and your sleep space (which can be hard to achieve in one room)I recently moved my bedroom around and I am finally starting to feel like it's the perfect mix. Today I wanted to show you my desk space. I have switched it up slightly, adding more golden and earthy tones in the form of decor. 

I have been picking up trinkets for a little while now, some you may have seen on Instagram and others are new. Most of the bits are from TK Maxx but I do have items from Primark, Laura Ashley, Ikea and local carboot sales too. It's important to pick things up along the way, rather than buying everything in one go. I just feel like everything seems a little bit more personal that way. Oh, and my plants. I can't live without those can I! My fiddle-leaf fig is from Lidl, believe it or not it was only £10.

So yeah, that is my current desk situation. It is forever changing so the next time you see it, it will probably be completely different. But for now it inspires me and for that, I love it.

Where is your work space?

Skin Kissed Skin & Facial Serum.

Tuesday, 15 August 2017
Main active ingredients contain: Vitamin C + Hyaluronic Acid  + Collagen
I think I may have spoken about this before but I always tend to steer away from serums and oils. I just imagine them being greasy and sitting on top of the skin, but not this one. Skin Kissed promises to plump and hydrate the skin, remove acne, reduce fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes and leaves the skin feeling soft. The biggest difference I have seen though is when applying my make up. It makes blending the foundation soooo much easier and gives a flawless finish. My mum has been using it too and she loves it. She's into anything that softens the skin and reduces wrinkles & fine lines.

So I usually apply this serum in the morning as soon as I wake up. I use 4 drops and massage it into the skin, concentrating around my nose and forehead (my trouble areas). By the time I head down stairs to do my make up it is completely dry and soaked into the skin. It gives the skin a super soft and almost matte feeling finish. I haven't noticed a massive difference with my spots yet, but I did end up squeezing them the other day (stupid I know!) so I probably haven't helped. I really want to focus on getting rid of these spots, so I'll deffo update you with my progress. It has reduced the redness around my nose and forehead though, that seems to have calmed down a lot.
Oh, and can we talk about the bottle? I am loving anything gold and antique looking at the minute. It fits right in on my dressing table full of trinkets and plants.

definitely think this serum is worth trying out and if you're not happy with your results they offer a 30 day money back guarantee. Win!

Have you ever tried the Skin Kissed serum?
