Love these lips like crazy, I might have to apply this lip look for a sultry and dark look for nights out. (Again…and this could be me but when you saw this lovely lip look did you instantly think of Kat Dennings?…I love her)…

...guys must have fun kissing her, who wouldn't!

…guys must have fun kissing her, who wouldn’t!

Isn’t this amazing!? Simple and effective…I don’t think I’ll wait till next year to rock this look. I’ll find a Gothic scene somewhere. Just a thought.

Trendin’ Tuesdays: #StayingIn

It’s another Trendin’ Tuesday and this week it’s all about staying in! Yes! No fashion, no craft and no cupcakes…(but maybe bread baking).

Time to get those wooly jumpers on, massive mugs in hand and yummy soup recipes because clearly the coldness is not waiting for the month of November to freeze my fingers off!

So why not hashtag #stayingin to @leleloves72 with your favorite thing about staying in such as your fav drinking mug/cup or a item of comfortable clothing like those afforadorable onesies!

Happy trending and stay cosy!

Flighty Kite

This British weather makes me go all warm and lovely inside…NOT! It wakes me up out of my sleep at 6:00am!

I’ll not let a massive storm get me down! When life gives you cold lemons you make a kite! Right?!

Here’s a How To on how to make a kite however I chose to search for fabric kites as they looked more appealing to me especially platformed on Pinterest…

...like so. How pretty and shabby chic right? Once your done flying you can hang it on your wall (that's if you don't get it stuck in a tree or eaten by the sky that is).

…like so. How pretty and shabby chic right? Once your done flying you can hang it on your wall (that’s if you don’t get it stuck in a tree or eaten by the sky).

This is the How To I found today which looks pretty simple!

This blog/website looks cute and crafty so maybe there’s more cute stuff once you sign up! (oh yes I’m signing up!)

Over here in London, England it is now pouring rain on and off with hard stormy winds so I don’t fancy getting my pretty kite wet…if too you’re in London and can’t bloody find where to buy wooden dowels to have in your hands NOW and NOT next year might I suggest Wickes? As for the string go to the 99p Store (coz that was my first choice, ain’t no way I’m paying over a fiver for a kite!) and for fabric might I also suggest old clothes for a patchwork effect but uno with a nice print (not too heavy fabric because you want it to fly).

I hope your kite looks nice and if you do make it then Instagram it to me! Give a little hashtag #flightykite at me! I’ll Insta my kite as soon as I make it!

Happy flying in frogged up weather!

OOTW! with a Feisty Feline “How To” *Halloween Special*

Well uno how I wanted to be a cat for Halloween when I posted the Pinterest interest makeup pictures, well I did become a cat and a sexy-ish one too! Of course others were better dressed but thankfully I was the only cat…(no actually there was another with painted whiskers but I’ll pretend that I was the only one…the only sexy one!). Oh plus this curvy cat is wearing a ASOS wrap dress, plain flats and Evans tights!

Soft kitty, warm kitty, big ball of sexy, happy kitty, i'm a sleepy kitty so I won't purr!  :3

Yes work was fun and by that I mean tiring! But if you would like to know how I made my fur ears and tail the long and silly way then see what I did…it’s a half-hearted How To!

What you really need:

  • A glue gun
  • A needle and thread
  • Garden wire (or flower making or even jewelry wire. I was just lucky I found this in the £ Store)
  • Scissors
  • Fabric scissors
  • Black ribbon
  • Black faux fur
  • A headband
  • A pencil and paper (if you want to draw out the planned look or your cat ears)*
  • A tape measure

*Purrrrfectly optional!

My equipement (which half of it I didn't need so I ended up spending £10...and I don't know what I bought!)

The collar was just a ribbon with a sewn gem in the middle for a bit of sparkle!

So I hope that was some help to you! I thought it was cute and great under radar when it’s daytime and you don’t feel like getting feliney before the party starts!

Happy Halloween!

Twisted Turban Headband

Before I got my hair done in this nice little fringe which is keeping my hair behaving I had a lot of hairy mishaps with styling.

Bad pun? Ok!

So I was on…nevermind you know where I was

Look what I found! A turban-like headband, it looks kinda vintage 1920’s I think. (Sorry about the pictures…I done this randomly). As a bonus this takes very little effort!

What you’ll need:

  • An old jumper
  • Scissors
  • Pins
  • Tape measure
  • Needle and thread with cotton thread*
  • A sewing machine with cotton thread, bobbin and bobbin case in same colour as the cotton*
  • A balance between determination and not caring.

*Optional yo!

I got one on my old jumpers to make this headband..."Quin" (like in Glee) manniquin was already dressed.
