Laura's Links

Hair/ Beauty

  • I actually love the trend of multicoloured tips, but I'm not prepared to screw up my highlights. So this tutorial from A Cup of Jo on how to use chalk pastels to achieve a temporary look is something I'm quite psyched to try...
  • The Beauty Department has a quick and easy (2 steps!) guide to matte eyelid contouring here.
  • Something I discovered in the College Fashion archives: 5 Nail Polish Colors Every Girl Should Own.


DIY/ Crafting

  • A Beautiful Mess has a great tutorial on custom clothing by using bleach painting. I can't wait to give this a try on a cheap t-shirt...
  • I'm on the lookout for pretty vintage teacups, so that I can make these candles (such a great gift idea, as well...)
  • I am SO doing this at the next party I host! Who doesn't love returning to childish creativity every now and then?


  • An old one, but still very good: 101 Ways to Cheer Yourself Up (Part 1) (Part 2)
  • Ever feel like your life is getting stuck in a rut? If you're not already an addict like me, you need to be reading the "Why Don't You?" series on Smaggle - perfect inspiration for adding a little whimsy to life.
  • Make the most of your time with 42 Ways to Make Life Simpler.
  • Help keep your day on track with this organisational printable. (I always feel far more productive when I can tick things off a list!)


  • Have some fun with the oddeties of English pronunciation - just try read this paragraph aloud!
  • Looking for new ways to complement people? How about 50 Ways To Say "You're AWESOME"? (My absolute favourite : "You're a glitterbomb of glory!")
  • How often have you heard a snippet of an amazing song during a TV episode and not known what it's called or who it's by? Try find it on Heard On TV - just search for the episode number of your show
