{ September } Favourites!

This was fun to film and edit. I think it’s only because I was in a really good mood before I did it, haha.

Either way, I hope you enjoy my very first monthly favourites video. And if you guys enjoyed it, please let me know by giving me a thumbs up on the video, so I can continue the series.

I really enjoy tag videos because they’re so easy to shoot, I just wish I had a giant list of them so I could pick and choose which ones to do each week.

Items mentioned:

  • Ponds cleansing towelettes
  • Michael Todd’s jojoba charcoal facial scrub
  • Urban Decay’s Naked Basics palette
  • Bliss Spa’s Vanilla & Bergamot body butter
  • Max Studio grey throw

Anti-Pervert Hairy Stockings!


ChinaSMACK reports that a user on Sina Weibo (a microblogging site in China) has invented a way for girls to fend off perverts — “hairy stockings”. 

I coincidentally ran into this news report as I was checking my notifications on Facebook. It made me laugh at the sight of it, but it had me questioning whether or not it would work.

For one, would a pervert really care about what your legs look like if they were just after your cookie*? Also, at first glance it would look real, but if they were to touch it, I think anyone would be able to tell the difference between real hair and synthetic.

I don’t believe it is real, but the idea of it is novel.

DIY :: Fire-starting Pie!

Based on that title, it sounds like it could be one dangerous treat you wouldn’t want to make. But it really is a treat – not edible, but totally practical.

Picture this. You’re lost on a treeless island. There aren’t any trees around you, so how can you start a fire to signal for help? Ta-da! FIRE-STARTING PIE!

It’s simple! Using just cosmetic cotton pads and candles, you’ll be able to make long and slow burning fire-starting pies.

All you need to do is: put a candle in a pan (one you don’t care about getting wax in), raise the heat, slow and low. Once you have a quarter of an inch of liquid wax, use a tweezer to put the pads in the pan. Don’t let them overlap. After a few seconds, they’ll be perfectly coated. Take them out and cool them on some wax paper before throwing them into a bag.

Ta-da! That’s it.

These pies are small, and make it really convenient to throw into a first-aid kit, emergency kit or bag to store in the car. So the next time you need to start a quick fire, tear one of the pads to expose the fibers inside, and light it up.

Interior Decorating :: Framed Artwork

Looking for something to fill the empty void on your walls? Enjoy looking at flowers and greenery? Here’s an idea! Frame these ‘Exploding Flowers’ from Qi Wei’s series by the same name. It features orchids, roses, sunflowers, and many more.

It would look absolutely lovely in an all white room, black furnishings. It adds just the subtle touch of colour in a minimalist style room.
