My life isn’t special. But sometimes, it’s fun to make it seem like it.

I love to take photos. Sometimes I post things on the internet when I’m doing something cool. I edit the picture and post it for the world to see.

How to Make a Phone Stand Using a Ring Box #LifeHackin5Mins

Life hack! Make a DIY phone stand in under 5 minutes using a ring box - Miss Caly

Ever wanted to watch a movie on your phone whilst doing boring homework? Well now you can! (Not that I recommend it…you get totally distracted!)

Today’s life hack was something I came up with by accident. I really wanted to watch some YouTube videos on my phone while I was waiting for my blog photos to load but I hated the thought of having my phone faced up on the table because I couldn’t really enjoy the video properly. In that moment, (conveniently) there happened to be a ring box on my table. I opened it and laid my phone on it. WOAH. *dramatic music* *crowd cheer* *bows* Continue reading

Free Minimal Phone Wallpaper: “Put the Phone Down!”

free downloadale minimal wallpaper - 'put the phone down!' By Miss Caly

I have a confession:

I use my phone wayyyy too much. 

One minute I’m checking the whether, the next, my finger mindlessly finds the Instagram app…and then Pinterest, then my emails and then Twitter…And I forget what I’m supposed to be doing in the first place. It it just me, or does anyone else have absolutely no reason to be using their phones most of the time, an yet it manages to turn up everywhere they go?

I’m not going to lie, I love using my phone. I love connecting with you guys and I love being inspired by all the creative wonders that the internet brings. But I just think sometimes I could be spending my time doing better things… more productive things.

Today I made myself a wallpaper. It goes like this: “put the phone down”. While the act sounds really simple, it seems that my hand is so used to constantly reaching for my phone that I don’t even realise I do it. Continue reading

10 things to feel grateful for...

Sometimes I feel like I’m not grateful enough for the things I have. I have lots of things – maybe even too much – and it’s hard to acknowledge them when I’m so used to having them around. Continue reading

It’s a Good Week… #MondayMotivation

Yet another Monday has come and here you are staring at a screen, reading this post. Let me guess – you’re procrastinating right now. Either that, or you’re mindlessly surfing the web again because you don’t know what else to do with your life. I don’t blame you – in fact, I’m guilty of both of those things right at this very moment.

What am I doing with my life?

Ah, the question no one’s ever been able to answer. As a sixteen year old girl going to school and all, there’s always been so many things I’ve wanted to try, so many dreams I aspire to reach, so many goals, so many things to do! And yet here I am in my bedroom, basically doing nothing at all. Anyone relate? No? Yes? Well I have a challenge for you!

It’s a new day, a new week and a very new chance to start something new. I dare you to TAKE IT. I also dare you to share this with a friend and motivate them to do the same. Spread the motivation guys!

I came across a quote on Pinterest and thought I’d try my own take on it using a brush and ink. Here it is. Live it, breath it. IT’S A GOOD WEEK TO HAVE A GREAT WEEK.

It's a very good week to have a great week! Here's a little inspiration to kick start your Monday... Continue reading

EASY DIY Nail-Art Dotting Tool Using a Pen and Bobby Pin

Make a nail dotting tool out of a pen and bobby pin! - Miss Caly

This month, I’m trying something new!

Lately I’ve been getting into body art. I love how you can turn anything into something else by a simple flick of a brush and some paint. I was recently on a Pinterest rampage and was so inspired by the intricacy of eyeshadow art (where artists created beautiful masterpieces using eyelids as canvases) and also nail art, where such fine detail could be painted on ten fingertips. One day I want to be able to do just that. Ah, such goals!

You can probably tell my excitement to share with you today’s DIY. Continue reading
