Holiday or not, every good party needs aesthetic walls or backdrops for a photo booth section. Having a fun night calls for making sure everyone remembers it, especially if there will be some drinks being passed around. I typically don’t drink much, but I do appreciate good party decor and we all know I love DIYing it. Parties and backdrops aren’t cheap, but when you make it yourself, it can be. In fact, it can be $1-5 to make a quality looking one. Here’s 4 variations of backdrops I made for parties.
If you have coloured or damaged hair, it’s best to avoid washing it as much as possible. For me, I’ve managed to avoid washing my hair for up to two weeks (yeah, you read that right). If odour is your concern, there are also ways to freshen it up without the water or soap. And don’t worry, all of these tips are cost friendly. Like you, I am also the average income consumer who doesn’t have a lot to dish on super expensive products or hair treatments.
I’m so excited to share with you guys these photos because I worked so hard on making my 23rd birthday celebration a beautiful and exciting little get together. Some may call it a party, some may not. I like quiet little gatherings because there’s more bonding and catching up time. As always, I like doings things on a budget. Ideally, if I were to buy all my decorations, it’d be really expensive. So, I looked to Pinterest, got some inspiration and make DIY Party Decorations for under $50 all together!
The mermaid and unicorn trend have been taking the internet by storm. People have begun making mermaid themed things ranging from food to clothing. Something about the beautiful mix of colours and iridescent details brings these mermaid things to life. One of the more popular and new items that have been introduced is mermaid toast. There’s no surprise to why this one creation has caught so much attention, it’s so elegant and beautiful! So I decided I’m going to take the challenge and create mermaid toast!
I already had balayage and ombre in my hair from last year. The first picture depicts the dark and soft ombre. That I had. My hair also grew out quite a few inches since then. Because I already had balayage and ombre in my hair, my stylist Amanda simply touched up the top layer of my hair with a lighter balayage and gave me a 2 inch trim. You can see the results in the middle photo. Excuse the way my ends look, they’re always frizzy when freshly blow dried/ air drying. It was fairly brassy toned because she needed […]
I am so excited to share this Hunger Games DIY with you. Because it’s Halloween season, I’m feeling all crafty! Of course, the one thing I’d choose to make it Katniss Everdeen‘s wedding dress from Catching Fire. Honestly, when she walked out with the dress, it was absolutely stunning. Something about how detailed, dainty, yet extravagant the wing details are with the elegant voluminous dress made me fall in love with it. Obviously, on my budget, I won’t be able to make Katniss’s full dress length, but I decided to go shorter to make it more practical. Unfortunately I don’t […]
Totoro is a character from the movie “My Neighbour Totoro“. His character is so well known that I knew about him and who he is without ever watching the movie for years. Totoro is such a simple character: happy, lazy, sleepy, cute, and kind, making it no surprise he’s the favourite character of many! I knew I had to make a costume because he is so iconic, and who doesn’t want to be all cozy for Halloween in a giant sweater?! No uncomfortable, tight, or high maintenance problems here! Plus, if it’s cold where you live like it is in Canada, you’ll […]
Mike Wazowski from Monster’s University is one of my favourite Pixar characters. Something about quirky and dorky characters just makes them so irresistible. Without a doubt, I decided to DIY a costume. Surprisingly, it’s easier than I thought it’d be to make. If you want to make it more Mike Wazowski like, you can stuff your belly with a pillow so you’re big and round like him! Make sure you watch the video for visual instructions!
