DIY Glitter Jars ♥

Image

Hey guys! Today’s post is going to be a pictorial on how to make these super easy glitter jars! The pictures are not doing these justice – they are so super glittery and look so cute! It’s a great way to re-use all of those jars from food that you might throw away otherwise. You could also stick a fake battery operated candle (only use a fake candle) inside one of these for a really pretty candle. I tired it and it works great 🙂 I got this from a DIY video that Bethany Mota uploaded around Valentines Day last year. Without further ado, lets get on with the simple tutorial!

Image

Step 1. Gather your supplies. You will need a clean, label-free jar, spray adhesive, glitter of your choice, and random stuff to decorate the jar with. Some ideas are ribbon, jewels, stickers, etc. I used fabric for my ribbon!

Step 2. Take your jar and clean it off, making sure there is no residue left on it from a label.

Step 3. Take your spray adhesive and lightly spray the inside of the jar – make sure the whole inside is covered with adhesive so glitter will stick everywhere. Poor a reasonable amount of glitter in the jar and put the cover on it. Shake the glitter around until you see the whole inside is covered and sparkly 🙂 Take off the cover and tap the jar upside down on some paper so the excess glitter is removed.

Step 4. Cut some ribbon or fabric and tie it around the jar. You can decorate it however you want. It’s up to you!

Step 5. Stick what you want in it – I used fake flowers, as you wouldn’t want to use real flowers – putting water in the jar would ruin it.

That’s it! I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial. These are ridiculously easy to make, aren’t they? I hope you give them a try 🙂

Tropical Kawaii ☼

Hey guys! Where I live it’s snowy and freezing, so I thought I would do a summer nail design to make me feel a little more summery! This might be one of my favorite designs that I’ve done 🙂  I had to add a cute face to the pineapple and starfish because I feel like the cuter the nail art the better! What’s your favorite nail? I hope this manicure gives you a little bit of summer if it’s freezing where you live!

“Would You Rather” TAG! (Beauty Questions) ♥

Hey everyone! Today I am going to be doing a “would you rather tag”. I was tagged by the lovely Ginger Loves Makeup 🙂 If you love beauty and nail polish definitely go check out her blog – it’s awesome! Lets get started with the questions, shall we?

1. Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lip glosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?

Ahhh this is hard. I absolutely love my eyeshadows, but I think I would go nuts without my mascara. So, sorry eyeshadows and palettes – you’d have to go!

2. Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?

I have to say I’d cut it off! I don’t think I could stand never cutting my hair again.

3. Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?

I’m a coral kind of girl 🙂

4. If you had £1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?

Wow, that’s a hard decision! I would probably choose clothes though, as I don’t really need more makeup hehe 🙂

5. Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?

Ew! But I guess if I had to choose I would probably apply lipstick as eyeliner…

6. Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?

Sephora all the way!

7. Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?

Eyeshadow is one of my favorite makeup items, so I couldn’t use just one color for the rest of my life! I would much rather use one lip color.

8. Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?

Hmmmm…. summer clothes in winter! Wearing winter clothes in summer would be a terrible experience hahaha 🙂

9. Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?

Bight nails! I have never loved dark nails. The brighter and crazier the better – I love it when my nails stand out!

10. Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?

I would rather give up my favorite lip product.

11. Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?

Ponytail! Would I be able to wear a bow with it, too? 🙂

12. Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?

NEVER PAINT MY NAILS AGAIN?! Hahaha that’s never gonna happen. Bye bye lipgloss!

13. Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?

Oh my gosh. I guess sharpie them in… Sharpied eyebrows are better than none, right? Eh I don’t know… Lets just go with yes.

14. Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?

Painting my nails is one of my favorite things to do… so as much as I love makeup, I guess I could learn to live without it!

Well, that’s all the questions guys! I hope you enjoyed! If you are reading this you are tagged – I would love to read your answers to these questions 🙂

Thanks for reading! ♥
