You're going to love me!

Today's title, courtesy of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.  Now, onto the serious business that today's blog post is.

...I'm kidding, it's not that serious, it's more adorable.  Anywho.

Ever since I saw this heart ring tutorial on I Spy DIY, I knew I had to try it - it looked so cute and so easy.  When my Dad found a massive spool of wire in his shed, I borrowed a bit and made two!  The first one I made turned out absolutely massive, simply because it was harder to bend the wire than I initially thought...

Large heart ring!

I still think it's adorable.  Considering I had my silver nail polish out that day, I decided to paint over the wire to get a nice, shimmery finish, which I actually love.

This, is my teenie tiny one!

Teenie tiny heart ring!

So much cuteness, I love this one.  For both rings, I accidentally cut too much wire at the end, so I decided to turn them both into mini knuckle dusters.

Until next time,

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…
