My Favourite Art Essentials: Because It’s School Holidays!

My Favourite Art Supplies! - Miss Caly

The school holidays began last week and so comes the time to finally have a nice long break from those hours of sitting behind wooden desks, staring blankly at a white board. Yayyyyyy!….. yay…? Now half the holidays have passed and I’m still sitting behind my wooden desk, not doing anything grand. Seriously, where has the time gone?!

Well, I guess my time has gone into doing several things. First of all, I’ve been watching Masterchef and binge watching Game of Thrones (in which my only regret is not watching it sooner). Apart from that, I’ve also been making DIY phone cases (see these on my Instagram!), eating lots, doodling like crazy and occasionally stepping foot out into the vast terrains of my backyard to experience some vitamin D.  Continue reading

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

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

How to Make a Pen out of Lip Balm!

Video Tutorial on How to make a pen out of lip balm! - Miss Caly

Hello!

It’s f-f-f-finally Friday! You know what that means? No school for another two days! Also, it’s time for another DIY. Today’s idea is a little bit different to the ones I usually do. I tried to be creative and ‘think-outside-the-box’ and came up with something I hope you’ll enjoy.

I never know what to do with my empty cosmetic bottles and containers once they’re all used up. My rational mind always tells me to “just throw them out!” but then the other side of my brain (the hoarding-stingy-let’s-pretend-to-be-creative side) urges me to “keep them in case they ever become useful”. Judging by my craft drawer filled with piles and piles of junk, you could probably tell which side I listen to more.

However! For this DIY, I am super glad I kept one of my old lip balms because it certainly came in handy. Today I’m going to show you how to make a secret pen using an old lip balm tube… and did I mention DIY clay? Continue reading
