DIY: Quick Floral Crown

What you will need:
4 rose heads (i got mine in a hardware)
a hairband (primark)
approx a half a metre of bendable wire (any hardware or garden centre will have it)

To make your crown all you have to do is :

1. Thread the wire through the roses, in through the bottom and back again from the inside.
2. Do this for all the rose heads leaving a good space between each head.
3. Trim off any excess wire and wrap the roses around the hairband and you are done!

New In

Just a few new little bits I've found a few days ago. 
I've been stocking up quite a bit on black clothes. No surprise there really, but seeing
as it is winter, I have an excuse. I am obsessed with the leather skirt. (not real leather)
It's soooo comfy and is actually a nice alternative to the famous Zara skort that oh so many
people have.

After The Hype: Benefits They're Real Mascara Review

Benefit claim that their They're Real mascara lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts & separates. 
They also say that their new formula wont dry or smudge. Iv'e been wanting to buy this mascara
for aaaaaaaages but couldn't justify the price (26 euro for a tube)
However, I had run out of mascara and I seen benefit had an offer where you got
a free smaller sized mascara with the bigger one. So Lisa got one.

The best thing about this mascara is that it's jet black. It also has a round dome brush at the
end for reaching the teeny tiny little lashes a normal brush cant. The Mascara definitely adds volume, lifts and lengthens. It stays out all day and won't rub off.

However, it is impossible to get off. I felt like I have spent an extra 10 minutes every evening taking off my make up. Benefit says the mascara is supposed to separate but I think it does quite the opposite. The formula is quite sticky so I found my lashes clumped together a bit. This would be more for people who prefer the ''doe'' eyed look. 

Would I buy it again? Probably not. I have used the loreal telescopic for years and I am having slight withdrawal symptoms since switching. Saying that it would be a great mascara for people who love big full lashes.
