Life Hack! Organise your earrings in 5 minutes with this easy DIY! - Miss Caly

If you have your ears pieced, I’m betting you experience the same dramas as me every morning: I call it the ‘I can’t find my second pair’ struggle.

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

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

IMG_4393

Okay, okay, I know this post is probably long overdue but I’m excited to share it with you nevertheless.

So remember when I posted my first DIY project ever on this blog about “How to Make a Super Easy Diary Lock“? Well, I realised that the way I explained it might not have been very clear and the pictures were hard to see – so maybe it didn’t seem so ‘super easy’ after all…  I’ve had a few requests on making an updated version for this tutorial and I’ve finally had the chance to do one. (Yes, I do listen to your suggestions and love to hear them!)

Hence, here it is. Tutorial 2.0 on how to DIY a diary/notebook lock in under 5 minutes.  Continue reading

7 Days of Lists Challenge: Day 1!

Take this fun 7 day challenge to write lists, lists and lists! - Miss Caly

Hey there!

Let’s talk lists.

Lists are one of my strange life-long obsessions, whether they’d be to-do lists, shopping lists, things-I-want lists, restaurants-I-love lists…the list goes on (no pun intended). Whatever they’re for, lists in general are my thing. They make me feel a sense of organisation in my life and simply the fact of writing things down helps me relax. We all have different ways of feeling calm…lists are mine.
