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
