DIY iPhone Christmas Phone Case

Today for my Christmassy themed post I've decided to show you how to make a lovely DIY iPhone Christmas phone case. I've used this method for a while with various wrapping papers and I've gotten lots of compliments! I normally get the 'Did you seriously make that yourself?' line. So here's how you can do it!

You will need:
  • wrapping paper of your choice (I've gone for Christmas wrapping paper to get myself in the mood!)
  • a clear phone case
  • your phone
  • scissors
  • a craft/pen knife
  • a pencil
  • blue tac/ play dough
Ok, so let's get started!
1. Draw around your phone at your selected part of wrapping paper that you want to be on your phone case.

2. Cut around your line you have drawn so that it fits into your phone case. You might have to do a bit of trimming to get it to fit so be patient!
3. Put your wrapping paper in your phone case and also put in your phone. Take your pencil and draw around the camera hole. 

4. Place your camera hole that you have drawn over a piece of blue tac. Cut out around a little bit outside the drawn camera hole so that it fits perfectly with the case. 

5. Voila! You now have your Christmas phone case! Put it in your case and your finished! You can customise your phone case to every occasion or make whatever you like!

November Favourites 2013

This month I've been loving a good few products but I have scraped it back to ones I've not shown in a post yet. Here goes!
Again, I apologise for the picture quality. By the time I get around to taking the pictures it's dark so I need to use the flash. I'll include a closer picture of the nail polish tomorrow.

My first favourite is the Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion - £7.65. I've been loving this because it's super moisturising and doesn't feel greasy. It also dries in very quickly which is great because it means you don't have to dance around fanning your face before you apply any makeup.
Another favourite is my EOS lip balm in 'Summer Fruits'. I had to get this from Amazon because it isn't available in the UK. I seriously love this lip balm, it makes my lips feel so smooth! EOS really do make amazing lip balms, although I have to say, I'm not too keen on the smell of this one.
Another one of my favourites is my Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream - £7.99. I love this BB cream for evening out my skin tone and everyday use. This is my second tube of this although I'm not sure I would repurchase it because I could probably get something better for the same price. For a more in depth review go to my everyday makeup essentials here.
My final favourite is the Orly nails polish in 'Star Spangled' - £5.00. This nail polish is PERFECT for Christmas as it has a very fine glitter through it. I also love it because it reminds me of gel nail polish because it is incredibly smooth. I love love love this nail polish and I think I'll be wearing it for a lot of the Christmas season!

Review: Lush Santa's Lip Scrub

Ok, before I really go into this post, I would like to say a HUGE sorry for not posting in around two weeks! I've been really really busy and just couldn't find time to write a post. I will be more organised this month! Also, in the lead up to Christmas I hope to be posting more and my November favourites will be on here tomorrow at the very latest!

Right now, onto the product!
Lush Santa's Lip Scrub - £5.50

I'm sorry about the picture quality, no natural lighting was available.

This is my first Lush product that I have ever bought! I'm pretty impressed so far too! This lip scrub has done wonderful things to my lips and now they are as smooth as can be! I love this because it smells amazing (like cola! I preferred this to the sweet bubblegum scent) and is edible after use as it's made from natural ingredients. I am very impressed with this product and definitely think it was worth the £5. Brilliant, must-try product!
