8 gifts to get your boyfriend

I have been struggling with this for a while and I bet some of you are too so I scoured the internet trying to find the perfect boyfriend gift. These are the best ones that I found:

1. Candy arrangement
If your boyfriend has a sweet tooth then this is the perfect gift. What you will need is a small bowl, a styrofoam ball that fits inside the bowl, glue, toothpicks, and an array of your boyfriend's favorite sweets. Glue the styrofoam ball into the bowl. Then, stick the candy onto the toothpicks and stick the other end of the toothpick into the styrofoam ball. Continue this step until the styrofoam is completely covered.

2. Jar of hearts
If your boyfriend is the sentimental type, give him this romantic gift. Take a jar and fill the bottom with confetti, glitter, or any type of filler. Then, buy or make a bunch of tiny envelopes. Fill each envelope with a love note and then put all of the notes into the jar. When you give it to your boyfriend tell him to open one each morning. He'll start each day with a reminder of your love.

3. Books
If your boyfriend's a bookworm get him something to read. Buy him a book from his favorite author or a book you know he'll love. Don't know what kind of books he likes? Get him a bookstore gift card. It may sound kind of insensitive, but he'll be sure to love it. If you want to give him a more personal gift, make him a book mark. This way, every time he's reading he'll think of you. For the really daring, write him something. A poem, a love letter, maybe even a story.

4. The gamer
So your boyfriend's a gamer, try some of these gift ideas. Get him that video game he's been dying for. If he already has just about every game in existence, try a gift card to a video game store. You can also, get him a controller, you can never have too many of those.

5. Movie junky
If your boyfriend loves watching movies, get him movie tickets. You can get these at most movie theatres. Add a bag of popcorn, some candy, and stick it all in a popcorn container for a cute gift. You can also get him a movie theatre gift card. If you want to make it a little more personal, make him a movie.

6. Sports fanatic
If your boyfriend's a sports fan get him sports equipment. He doesn't play a sport? Get him tickets to a game. If you want to get more creative get a plain sweatshirt and decorate it with his number or the number of his favorite player.

7. Class clown
Does you boyfriend like to goof off or make jokes? Get him a joke book. Or try giving him a gag gift. You can also, get him a t shirt with a silly saying on it. If you want to be more creative, write him a joke book or decorate a t shirt with a funny saying.

8. The artist
If your boyfriend loves art, get him art supplies. If you're also an artist, draw him a picture or a poster.

As you can see I kind of ran out of ideas at the end, each one getting shorter and shorter.... Feel free to comment if you have any ideas you would like to add or if you are looking for ideas for a type of boy who isn't listed here. Also, feel free to comment on any of my other posts, telling me what you think, what kinds of posts you want to see more of, and any ideas you have for future posts. Hope this post helped make your holiday season a little less stressful :)

DIY: Glam Globes


You will need an empty jar with a screw top lid, a cosmetic product with a secure lid, gems or stones, glitter, hot glue gun with glue sticks, cotton rounds, and rubbing alcohol. The jar should be large enough for your cosmetic product to fit inside. Also, if you wish to paint your jar lid you will need paint and a paintbrush. Start out by cleaning your jar and removing an labels. If the bales leave any residue you can use the rubbing alcohol to clean it off. Just pour some of it onto a cotton round and rub off the residue. If you want to paint your lid then start out by painting a light coat on the top of the lid. Once you have painted the to, let it dry before painting the sides. Let the lid dry completely before moving on to the next step. If there is a sticker at the bottom of the cosmetic product be sure to remove it. Glue stones or gems to to the center of the lid, making sure you don't go to close to the edges. Then, glue the cosmetic poroduct to the stones. Fill the jar with water and add glitter. Then, screw the lid onto the jar. Make sure that the lid is secure so that no water leakes out. And you're done! After you give this gift to someone, if they want to use the product they can just unscrew the lid and pull off the product. The glue will stick to the stones and not the product so that it can be removed.

DIY: ear cuff

 

You will need 18 gauge wire, chains, head pins, round pliers or cutters, and beads, pendants, or gems. First, cut a 20 cm piece of the 18 gauge metal wire. Use the round nose pliers to make a loop at one end of the wire. Cut the chain into 6 pieces each 6 cm long. Take one of the chains and string it onto the loop, then use the pliers to close the loop. Use your hands to shape the wire to the shape of your ear. Slide a chain onto the wire and keep it in place with a loop. Continue adding chains to the wire and securing them with loops. Take a pendant/bead/gem and thread it onto a head pin. Thread the pin through the last link in the first chain and create a loop. Cut off the excess. Repeat this for all of the chains and you're done.

DIY: Cobra braid bracelet


You will need, a chain, craft lace (gimp), scissors, pliers, tape, and glue. Wrap the craft lace around your wrist so that it is slightly longer than the circumference of your wrist. Cut the craft lace. Then, using your piece of craft lace measure out another piece that is 8 times the size of the first one. Fold the first piece in half and tape it down on both ends (the folded end and the open end). take the other piece of craft lace and fold that in half as well. take the middle and put it behind the piece that is taped down. Slide it up as close to the folded end as possible. Then, fold one side of the string over top of the taped down string, forming a loop or a "P". Take the string on the other side and pull it over the string making the loop, underneath the taped down string, and through the loop. Repeat this on the other side. Continue this step, alternating in sides. Once you get to about an inch left in the taped down lace, remove the tape. Take the open end and fold it back, creating a loop. Continue knotting, going over all four strands of lace. Tie a knot at the end of the lace and cut off any excess.Take the chain and measure it out so that it is half the length of your wrist. Use the scissors to break the links to separate the piece you want from the rest of your chain. Use the pliers to connect the chin to the loops on either end of the braided lace.

DIY: Boho boots


Heyy guys! So first off I want to apologize that I haven't been updating my blog recently, but with school starting and everything I just haven't had the time. So today I have a DIY that I found on youtube by Mr. Kate and it is a "boho" boot tutorial. So what you will need is a pair of cowboy boots with a leather interior that you are okay with cutting, E6000 glue, glue gun with fabric glue sticks, masking tape, belts, lace, and any other material you want to use to adorn your boots. Start off by cutting down the back of one of the boot all the way down to the heel cap. Then bend the top down over the bottom. Take your belts and start wrapping them around your boot. Add other materials as desired. Once you get the look that you want start gluing them into place. Glue fabrics, ribbons, and lace with the fabric glue using the glue gun and the belt with the E6000 glue. Wear protection when using E6000 glue because it can damage you brain cells. Use masking tape to hold things in place while they dry.

August Favorites

Since August ended about a week ago I thought I would share my favorite products from the month of August. The first product is the Boscia BB cream. BB creams cover up blemishes along with containing acne fighting ingredients. They even have sunscreen in them. I don't like to wear a lot of make up so I usually just wear some BB cream to cover up my acne and even out my skin tone. The next product is the Boscia blotting papers. These absorb excess oils on your face. This is good to prevent acne and to get rid of any shininess. I like the EOS lip balm because it moisturizes my lips without making them sticky, and because it's not glossy it doesn't rub off. I like Essie nail polish in clambake because it gives me a bright pop of color. The orangy red hue is great for summer and can even work for fall and around the holidays. The urban decay primer potion is great to make eye shadows last and keep them from smudging. I like the urban decay naked eyeshadow palette because it has a variety of neutral colors that i can wear anytime. I like the color club nail polish in Blue-ming because i love its bright mint color. The Neutrogena daily facial sunblock is a great sunscreen that can be worn under make up or a facial moisturizer. Its very light but gives great protection with SPF 50. One thing that I don't like about it is that it leaves a whitish tint to my skin. Lastly, the Vanilla Dee-lite lotion from Lush is a thick, creamy, moisturizing lotion with a delicious vanilla scent.

DIY: Chain headband

Chain headbands are a great way to change up your look with out dying or cutting your hair. You will need several different colored chains, jump rings, pliers, and a wrap around comb headband similar to your hair color. Take one of your chains and measure out the length you want it to be. Take your pliers and break open the chain link at the end of your desired length and separate the two pieces. Repeat this until all of your chains are the length you want. You should have twoof the same chain of the same length for each. Take the two longest chains and set them on your work surface. Then take the two next longest and place one on each side of the longest pair. Continue laying out your chains so that the shortest are on the outside and the longest are on the inside. Once you have all of your chains layed out, take you pliers and open one of your jump rings. attach the jump ring to one of your longest center chains and hook the jump ring on to the headband right at the clasp. Do the same thing with your other longest chain to the other side of the clasp. Continue attaching your chians in hte pattern you have them layed out, skipping every other loop in the headband. You can alter your headband to fit your style like attaching chains to every loop instead of skipping every other one or laying out your chains in a different pattern.

DIY: Hex Nut Bracelet

This bracelet is super easy and fun to make, not to mention it makes an adorable accessory. All you need is 18 hex nuts, tape, scissors, and some leather cord. Take the cord and wrap it around your wrist about 3 times. Depending on how long you want it to be, add or subtract from the length of the cord and cut it. You will need 3 pieces of cord of this length. take the cord pieces and line them up so the ends are even, then tie a knot 2 inches from the top. Use the tape to secure the knot to the surface you are working on. Start to braid your cord. When you are satisfied by the length of braid begin to add your hex nuts. Starting with the piece of cord farthest to the left, slide on one of your hex nuts. Fold the left cord over the middle cord. Then, slide a hex nut on to the cord farthest to the right. Fold the right cord over theleft cord, which is now the middle cord. Continue braiding in the hex nuts and after you use them all finish the bracelet off with a traditional braid.

DIY: Shirt scarf #2

Here's another way to turn an old short into a trendy scarf! I got this tutorial off of P.S.- I made this.... Take your shirt and cut across under the armpits. Take the bottom and mark lines about 1/3 of the  way up; you decide how thick or thin you want your strips. Then, cut along your lines. Also cut along the seam. Pull on the strips so they curl, and your done!

DIY: shirt scarf #1


Don't know what to do with old shirts? Turn them into scarfs! One way to make a trendy scarf is to take an old shirt and cut it horizontally into 1 inch thick bands. Continue until you get to the armpit. Gently tug on each band to stretch them and they will curl in on themselves. Gather them in a pile and use one of them to tie the rest of them together by wrapping it through the pile. And that's it! You can even twist the strands for a whole new look!

DIY: braided chain bracelet

I got the tutorial for this bracelet off of the blog Henry Happened. Its cute and super easy to make; all you need is embroidery floss and a chain. Find a chunky gold chain and six bundles of embroidery floss ( either six of the same color or three of two colors). Separate the embroidery floss into two bundles; either a bundle of each color or a bundle of three. Each bundle should have about 15-18 strands and be 2-3 times as long as the chain. Knot the two bundles together an inch to an inch and a half away from the top. Lay the floss to the left of the chain. Take the bundle to the right, closest to the chain, and pull it through the chain from underneath. Take the other bundle, pull it over the first bundle, and through the next chain link from underneath. Continue doing this until you get to the end of the chain. Knot the end and trim the excess.

DIY: cheetah print shorts

Love the animal print trend? Well this tutorial will show you how to make your very own cheetah print shorts. Start by printing out a cheetah spot pattern. Use an exacto knife to carefully cut out all of the spots so that you have the outlines of them. then, take a pair of shorts and lay your "stencil" on top. tape down the stencil and then use a black fabric marker to outline all of the spots. Remove the stencil and use the fabric marker to fill in the spots.  This is a great way to recycle an old pair of shorts or just liven up any pair. Experiment with other colors and patterns to find a look you love.

Temporarily dye your hair

I have been experimenting with ways to temporarily dye my hair. There is surprisingly a number of different ways to do it and I am trying to find the most affective one. One way is to rub your hair with eyeshadow. I tried this method, but did not get the results i wanted; it just made my hair dusty. I think that it would be more affective if I had a large container of loose powder eyeshadow. Another method that I tried was hair mascaras, but it blended into my dark hair and made a mess all over the bathroom. The only things it dyed were my hands. A method I have not tried yet is using Hair chalk or hairshadow. This is pigment specifically designed to temporarily dye your hair, but it can be expensive. Another way is to use regular chalk. The last method I have heard of is to use Kool-aid. I will continue my trials and get back to you with the results.

Newspaper Nails

Want to get this news worthy look? It's easier that you may think. All you need is some rubbing alcohol, nail polish, and newspaper. Paint your nails with your color of choice, I suggest gray to enhance the newspaper vibe, and let it completely dry. Then fill a small container with rubbing alcohol. When your nails are dry, take one of them and dip it in the rubbing alcohol for 5 seconds. Then, take a scrap of newspaper and place it on top of your nail. Press the newspaper onto your nail for 15 seconds. After 15 seconds, peel of the newspaper. You can clean up around your nail with a Q-tip dipped in nail polish remover. Finish it off with a top coat to seal in the newspaper ink. For a video of how to do this check out Newspaper nail art by Cutepolish.

How to wear it: sweater tube scarf

I am starting a segment where I take an average piece of clothing and show you all the different cool ways that you can wear it. The first article of clothing I will be using is a tube scarf made of sweater material. Besides wearing it as a scarf, there are many other cute and fun ways to wear it. One way is to layer it over a shirt and wear it as a tube top. The one I have has a piece of yarn running across the top, which i can use to adjust the fit, but if yours doesn't you can use a safety pin to pin it in the back. Another way to wear is as a hat. I tied one end closed with a hair tie and then used the  yarn on the other side to tie it around my head. This works great if you want the slouchy beanie look. The last way you can wear it is as a leg warmer. I tucked one end of the scarf into a boot and tied the other end around my leg. Then, I scrunched it down around the opening of the boot. I hope this inspires you to think outside the box and find new ways to wear your clothes.

Fiercely fabulous stripes

These fierce stripes are sure to be eye catching and add pizazz to your look while the metallic and pastel   colors give it a sweet and subtle affect. I got the idea from a GL magazine. Start out by cutting painter's tape into thin triangles. Set these aside for later. Then, paint your nails with a metallic color, I used Sephora by O.P.I in a gold color. Let it completely dry, about 5 minutes. When it is dry take the painter's tape triangles and lay three on one of your nails in a stripe pattern. Press them down firmly and then paint over your entire nail with a pastel color, I used Color Club Professional Nail Lacquer in Blue-Ming. Wait ten seconds and then carefully peel off the tape. Repeat this process to all of your nails. Once they are all dry finish them off with a topcoat for protection and extra shine.

Classic French Mani with a twist

I saw this look in a commercial for L'OREAL's new line of nail polish and had to try it out. It's the same technique as a normal french manicure but substitutes the average, boring polishes with colorful ones. I used Sally Hensen's Hard as Nails Xtreme wear Nail color in Sun Kissed and Sinful Colors Nail Art in Sour Grapes. This pop of color is sure to make a bold statement without going all out. One trick for getting a smooth, straight line is to roll your nail under the brush instead of sweeping the brush over your nail. It's even easier if you use a nail art pen or nail art brush.

How to get soft lips

This will show you how to get rid of cracked, dry lips and make them soft and smooth. There are many different ways that people use to get rid of chappy lips. Almost all of them include scrubbing them. One way is to use a tooth brush to scrub off the dead skin. Start by wetting a tooth brush and then gently rubbing it across your lips. Don't rub too hard or you may experience some bleeding, but scrub hard enough to remove the dead skin. when your done slather on a chap stick, lip balm, or Vaseline. I suggest using a different tooth brush than the one you use for your teeth so that you don't end up with dead skin in your teeth. Don't use a lipstick or lipgloss right after you brush your lips because it will only dry them out. another way you can get soft lips is with a lip scrub. You can either buy one or make your own. To make a lip scrub all you need is sugar and honey. Mix together equal parts sugar and honey in a small dish and apply a generous amount onto your lips. wait a couple minutes and then scrub it off with a warm, wet towel. Apply a chap stick, lip balm, or Vaseline after the lip scrub. The last way to get rid of chappy lips is to not get them in the first place. A good way to prevent this is to drink plenty of water. Sometimes chappy lips are your body's way of saying, "I'm thirsty!" Hope this leads you down the road of soft and smooth lips.

brighten your nails with toothpaste

Ever feel like you have zombie nails after removing a dark colored nail polish? Dark colored nail polishes can leave a nasty stain on your nails that most people cover up with more dark nail polish, which just makes it worse. but that doesn't mean you have to give up dark colored nail polish for good. To get rid of that nasty discoloring, soak your feet in apple vinegar and scrub them with a clean tooth brush and some tooth paste. This will lighten up any unsightly stains and make your nails look brighter. this can also be done with your finger nails. I suggest that you buy a separate tooth brush to use on your nails, and not to use the same one you brush your teeth with.
