Wonderful blog Of The Day

Today, we took an interview from one of our favourite blogs owner Stina. She blogs over at "Her Name was Greta" And you should definately check out her blog!


"I purr, therefore I am"
an interview about cats


1) How many cats do you have and what are their names?
We now have two cats, one house cat called MjauMjau (wich means MewMew in Swedish), she will be 2 years old in March, and Semla, a Burma/Norweigan Forest cat who is 7 months. Both girls and super BFFs.


2) At what age you had your first cat?
I've lived with cats almost all my life. When I was born my parents' had three cats, 1 persian, 1 house cat and 1 siamese cat. The siamese cat used to take naps with me in my crib and watching over me like a mother. When I was 4 my parents had to put them up for adoption, 3 cats and 3 kids 4 years old and below, was just too much to handle and my parents' were afraid we'd develope allergies while crawling around in all that fur. Eventhough my mum vaccuumed every day it was still fur everywhere. It was a very sad time for me and my mum bought me a white cat plushie as a sort of substitute (I still have it!). When I was 10 we realized it was impossible to live without a furry friend any longer and we got a siamese kitten called Cissi. Cissi had 5 babies and we kept one, Maja. Cissi and Maja was a huge part of my life and I was devestated when they died of old age. Since I moved out of my parents' I've dreamed of a cat (or five!) of my own but it wasn't until I moved in with my boyfriend that I was ready for that kind of commitment.

Handmade Christmas Tree

Today is already Wednesday which means that 4 days left for Christmas.
I'm really excited cause in this post I'm gonna show you the basic steps for making a christmas tree made of polymer clay!

This is the final result

And this is me wearing the final result

First I should show you the brand of polymer clay that I use
which is fimo soft

To start I take a medim piece from the green clay and I rub it with my hand to make it softer, then I roll it on the table to make it look like this
I cut it in four uneven pieces and I place the three of them the one over the other
I take the last(and smaller) of the four pieces and I shape it with my hand in triangular form,then I place it on the top of what I have created so far
I press it down so the pieces unite
so now that we have the basic shape we can put the ornaments of the tree and of course we can add a some brown clay on the botton of it so it will be a more realistic tree
I shaped little balls with my hand and i placed them on enext to the other to cover the three lines.
Once I'm done with covering the lines I take some red clay and also created little balls
I started placing then firstly on the corners of the tree
 
after you are done with the red clay it's tome to take a bobby pin and press the tree on the bobby pin so it can take the shape of it
Then you bake it for 30minutes and the final reasult is this

Christmas MakeUp

As you know we have less than a week for Christmas and it's hight time to think about what are we going to wear in this special moment and what colours our make up will have.

If you haven't decided what to wear you should at least think about the basic steps of your make up.

I created this make up look for myself 

As you can see I wear fake lashes and red lipstick.


What do you think about this look?
Should I wear it on Christmas night or I should try more dramatic eyes?

Handmade Snowman Necklace

Hello everyone!
Today's post is dedicated to christmas!

What I love about this holiday is the presents,every year I'm waiting with excitement the gifts,but I'm also anxious about what I'm going to buy for my beloved ones :)
If you can't find the proper gift why don't you create one?
That's what I thought and now I'm gonna show you how to make a snowman necklace with polymer clay!

ok let's start


First of all you have to buy the polymer clay
I used for this creation the brand Fimo Soft
As you can see the colours are white, red, black and brown

First take a piece of white clay (the size you what your snowman to be)and create a ball 

Then roll the ball in the surface of a table with your fingers to create this shape

Cut it in three uneven pieces to create the three parts of snowman's body

mold the pieces in three balls

these balls now can create the body of the snowman

now you have an empty canvas and you can create whatever features you like
you can make smaller or bigger eyes, with or without mouth or whatever you imagine on this snowman

tip: before you bake it make a hole with a pin in the back of your snowman so you can hang him at the end

The final result is this 

oh and i forgot to tell you that my snowman doesn't just wave but it can also glow in the dark because i used fimo effect nightglow
So what do you think about this idea?
If you like it please inform me so I can make another post with polymer clay creations with more details.
Also I accept suggestion of what would you like me to create with polymer clay :)

I don't know if it's too early but I wish merry christmas  to everyone!

Curl Remover Review

 Hi Everyone!
As you might know i have curly/wavy hair
PhotobucketPhotobucket
(that's how they looked when i just let them dry)

But there are times i would like them straight and more managable but im really useless in straightening my hair..
So i decided to try out Curl Remover

And really liked the results..

I used the tinted version because my hair have been previously dyed, bleached etc
The reason i chose this product is that it's supposed to wear off after 3 months! 
Which is  a HUGE plus if you are not looking for something permanent.

Steps:



Photobucket


First you shampoo the hair and towel dry









Then you apply Curl Remover Step 1 for 5-10 min (i left it for 10 min)













After processing has been completed, rinse hair thoroughly for 5-7 minutes. Gently comb hair as smooth and straight as possible. Apply Step 2 neutralizer on the hair for 5 min




Next I blow-dryed my hair and i was left with that weird looking texture and then with the help of Bubbles i straighten my hair
Final Result

Nice and shiny right!?
My hair never looks as shiny when i try to straighten them and they were pin straight for 3 days in a row!

Me the next day of the straightening

Pros:
First of all the cheap price! And it works as well :) It actually required one-two strokes to straighten my hair and i noticed no breakage. My hair are in the same condition!

Cons
 i believe it has more lasting power than 3 months. And i was really hoping it would last less than 3 months. The reason is, while I enjoy having straight hair I am unable to straghten my hair and have to ask Bubbles to do it! But when i just wash them and let them dry it has the most ugly texture ever. I truly hate it. They look like a frizzy mess. I thought they would be wavy and not curly, but no. 

So before you try this or any similar product first consider that you will have to straighten your hair in order to make them look good.

I would propably use this product again but only on my bangs. Before this product i wouldn\t even imagine having straight bangs in a humid day. So yay to that!


Hope you found this review helpful~
Have you used or would u use this product?
