DIY: Inspiration Board

create-your-own-happiness

My first year of University was one of the hardest years for me. I was convinced mid-way through I was going to get kicked out my program because of how difficult it was. I was so grateful at the end of first year when I had made it through final exams.  After my experience first year, I wanted to make something to motivate me during difficult times for my second year at university.

One thing that really helped me first year was reading  quotes, so I decided to create my own inspiration board with all the quotes that inspired me to keep going.

 

This DIY consists of three things:

  1. A board of your choice 

I chose a cork board because I wanted a board that I’d be able to reuse it again and change the pictures on it.

When you have your cork board, all you have to do is lay it on a flat surface such as the floor, or a desk.

2.Pictures or quotes

If you guys don’t want to use quotes, you can also use pictures. The quotes I used on my board were off of google that I saved onto my phone. Once they were on my phone, I took them to to Walmart to get printed.

With your pictures you’re going to lay them out on top of the cork board in the position that you want them to be in. This is the best part because you can choose to create your board into a collage, or put your pictures side by side. The ways in which you can arrange your pictures are endless!

If you guys want an idea of what quotes I used, here are some of my favourites:tumblr_mdvnkl1PEP1rlzcq5o1_500.jpg

3.A hot glue gun or push pins 

I got these push pins at my local dollar store. I love how well the white tied in with the board. I think it added a really nice touch to the final look.

Once you have your push pins or glue gun all you have do is stick your pictures to the board.

Here’s what mine looked like after following those three steps, and I absolutely loved how mine turned out. I keep my inspiration board on my desk where I complete homework because that’s the place where I find I need the most inspiration. It always helps me finish  my homework reading quotes off of my board.

I hope you guys enjoyed this DIY, thanks for reading!!

 

 

DIY Your Own Little Makeup Vanity

untitled-design-5

Hi guys! This is my first beauty post and I’m so excited to share this with you. It’s every girl’s dream to have their own makeup vanity dedicated to just beauty products, but what if you don’t have the space or the money?

I recently moved, and have not yet bought myself a vanity for my room. I have not yet decided on the colour scheme for my room, so I had to get creative with where and how I do my makeup.

Here’s how I created my own little vanity with everything I had at home:

  1. Location

 

Location is most important, because this room is the place that need’s to have the best lighting in order to apply makeup.  In my house, the bathroom has really bright lighting so I knew that would be the perfect place to set up my little vanity. I use the left side of my counter just for my makeup and it keeps it really clean and organized. The best part of doing this DIY in your bathroom is you don’t have to worry about buying a mirror for your makeup!!.

 2. Shelf Liner

 

Shelf liner isn’t a must, but it does help protect your counter, or whatever surface your makeup is resting on.  Shelf liner is really affordable, and you can get an entire roll for $1.00 at your local Dollarstore or Dollartree. You can also use any fabric you have laying around your house, such as a small towel. I had extra liner from lining the drawers in my bathroom so I figured why not use the rest to protect the counter!!

3.Brush Holders

 

For Brush holders, you can literally use any cup you like. The one that I use is actually a pencil holder and had sitting around for a while.  I love how big it is, and holds my brushes comfortably. One thing that I see a lot of beauty gurus use is the cute white plant holders at ikea.

If you guys want an affordable brush holder, here’s a link to one that Elf Cosmetics is selling for $15

  1. Makeup Holder

When I was living on residence my first year of University, I needed something small with a lot of storage to hold my makeup. I got this one at Winners for about $6.99 but it did come in handy. It does an amazing job at holding all my makeup. If you guys don’t have a makeup holder, that’s absolutely fine, you can just lay your makeup out on your shelf liner.

Here’s a link to a makeup organizer if you guys are interested:

  1. Stool or Chair (OPTIONAL)

This step is optional. Usually I stand and apply my makeup but if you guys find it’s easier to apply your makeup while sitting you can add a stool or a chair.

Here’s the link to the stool for the picture. This particular stool is $39.99.

7. Mirror

If you choose to do this DIY somewhere other then a bathroom, chances are you’re going to need a mirror. You can find Mirrors to do your makeup almost anywhere! I got mine at the Dollarama, and it was a $1.25. If you guys want one that light’s up here’s one available on Amazon for $35.99.

6. Add Makeup

 

Now that your setup is all done just add your makeup to your makeup holder and you’re all done.
