You can make a flower crown in 4 easy steps.

You will need: elastic, hot glue, glue gun, fake flowers, needle, thread, and scissors.

Step One: Take your elastic, wrap it around your head, and cut it to your desired length.

Step Two: Cut your fake flowers off the stem, making the back of the flower flat and free of plastic.

Step Three: Hot glue on the flowers close together along the elastic.

Step Four: Sew the two ends of the elastic together.

August Favorites!

Hello Everybody!
As August draws to a close, I thought I would share with you my August favorites!

L’OREAL True Match Concealer

This liquid concealer is one of my beauty essentials. It blends extremely well and provides amazing coverage on anything from dark circles to blemishes. The True Match Concealer dries matte and does not make your skin look oily throughout the day.

NYX Butter Gloss in the color Eclair

I’m in love with this lip gloss from NYX for two reasons: it’s color makes your lips look naturally pink and it’s not overly sticky. Most lip glosses leave a sticky mess on your lips that is very uncomfortable to wear, especially when your hair gets caught in it. This gloss dries with the feeling of almost a very creamy lipstick making it comfortable to wear on days that you want to wear your hair down.

Sebastian Shaper Hairspray

This hairspray is amazing for holding in curls and maintain frizz free hair. I like to spray this in my hair before and after curling my hair for maximum hold with hair that’s does not feel crunchy.

L’OREAL Voluminous Butterfly Mascara in Black

This mascara is great for eyelashes of any length! Not only does it separate and voluminize your lashes it also creates a really neat “winged” out effect.

Dogeared Dance Ring

This ring from Dogeared is my new jewelry obsession! You can wear this ring alone or with a couple of other rings stacked on top of it.

I hope you enjoyed my August favorites! Sorry that list is small, but I promise that I will be doing a gigantic fall favorites list soon!!!

Don’t Be Afraid To Customize!

Hello Everybody!

I hope you have enjoyed my very small back to school series, #backtoschoolwithcallie. It was so fun to do, and I hope it was fun for you as the viewer to read!

Here are all three of the products I made/customized for school:

What I Made (From Left to Right):

1. Mint Green Binder
How I made it– You will need a binder in the color of your choice, magazines (preferably garden, fashion, or surfing magazines), scissors, copier paper, glue (glue stick and hot), and lace. To make the collage I cut out patterns in a magazine in the shape of triangles, glued them on in an alternating pattern and stuck it in through the clear pocket in the front of the binder. Then, I hot glued the lace from to the edge of the binder.

2. The Mint Green Notebook
To find out how I made this, check out my last post: “Little Ways to Spice Up Your Notebooks For School!📚”

3. The Black Pencil Case
To find out how I made this, check out my recent post: “Pencil Case- DIY”

Little Ways to Spice Up Your Notebooks For School!

Hello Everybody!
This is post #2 of my mini back to school series (aka #backtoschoolwithcallie)!!! Today I will be talking about little ways you can spice up your notebooks for school!

1. Chalkboard Labels
Chalkboard labels are a great touch to any notebook because they are so simple to apply and look great. Also it’s really fun to doodle with chalk on them ;)

2. Add Lace or Ribbon
By simply gluing lace or ribbon around the boarder of your notebook you can turn this boring stationary item into one with texture and flare!

3. Gems, Gems, And More Gems
Stick on jewels of any kind to bling up your notebook and to add a feminine touch.

4. Use Scrapbook Paper
To change the look of the front cover of your notebook entirely, take a piece of the scrapbook paper of your choice, hole punch three holes into it and glue it on!

If you have any ideas of your own, comment them down below! Also, if you try out any of these tips, post a picture of your notebook on either Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #backtoschoolwithcallie.
