DIY Halloween/fall room decor

So happy October! I call October the ‘Saturday’ of fall. It reminds me of the absolute middle of fall. Like September is the ‘Friday’ and November is the ‘Sunday’.On to more important stuff. Since it’s fall and Halloween season I thought it was appropriate to do some DIY room decor. But I have one blue wall in my room, which means it’s a bit harder for me to decorate my room with the fall colours, So this will be universal decor. Just a disclaimer: I did take these ideas of Pinterest and You Tube, so if you find them elsewhere don’t comment mean stuff there. I stole them 🙂 .

Pumpkin decoration: Now this idea is for the people who don’t like pumpkin carving. I like it, but this year I decided to colour it. To match my room, but also look like fall I chose gold acrylic paint. Of course you can chose any colour you want to match your room. But if your going for a fall look try to use a more earthy and warm colour.

so first I painted the pumpkin of course and then I wrote a autumn quote, I made up 🙂 .

Chestnut and acorn jar decoration: This decoration is very pretty and also useful if you have empty jars laying around the house. So first you go outside to enjoy the nice scenery and pickup some chestnuts and acorns, or if you don’t have any chestnut or acorn trees around, you can make a road trip out of this and see if you find some. Anyway when you picked up your nuts, paint some of them in any colour you want. The coloured nuts really pop and make your room look really autumn and tumlbr.

I also picked up some pine cones and painted them gold like the nuts. As you can see me and my friends picked up a lot more than we should, but we just got carried away 😀 .

Starbucks cup decoration:  So you know those pretty fall-themed cups you get at Starbucks in fall. But only some of the drawing are coloured,  so I decided to colour the rest and make it all colourful and nice. It’s really therapeutic, just like those colouring mandala books.IMG_20161009_165115 (1).jpg 

 Hope you enjoyed this blog. Tell me if you like this type of blog (and my photos) . And tell me what type of posts you would like to see next. I really need it 😉 . Comment what DIY was your favourite.

Have a great ‘Saturday’ of fall

How to deal with BFF problems

So I was planning to do a back to school blog, but then my trip to England came and with it came BFF problems. So I won’t give you the details, but here are some of my tips for how to deal with them.

1. Talk it out: Now this is the complete basic. If you had an argument (big or small), the best way to figure it out is when you tell each other what you think. 

2. Don’t be stubborn: I just added this like a side note. If your BFF hurt your feelings it’s okay to feel sad or mad. But when she apologizes and maybe give you a small gift, don’t be stubborn and not accept her apology or don’t talk to her. She  then might feel mad and hurt and your friendship could be broken.

3.Forgive and forget: After you talk it out don’t forget to apologize! But make sure if you did something bad to apologize first and vice versa. And also when you both apologize and hug etc. don’t bring up the argument again or always say “see I was right!”, you might start a bigger argument then your last one was.

4. Gifts: Now this could sound really random, but after you forgive each other your BFF might sill be a little sad. To make sure that doesn’t happen, try to surprise her with a little customized gift or invite her to the cinema or plan a nice sleepover.  

Hope you enjoyed this blog and that it helped you with your BFF problems, if you or someone else has them. Like this blog if you like your BFF. If you would like to see more of this kind of blog  or if you would like to see some back to school/fall related blog tell me in the  comments.

Have fun with your BFF

A trip to France, Italy and Switzerland all at once

So here we are, my last A trip to.. blog post. I’s kind of funny that the last trip is a trip to three countries.  If you like to hike, run or you like mountains you know where I’ve been to. For the rest of you I’ve visited cities or villages near Mont Blanc. Like Courmayer, Chamonix and Champex. My dad was there supporting his friend who ran a national 170 km marathon UTMB or Ultra trail du Mont Blanc. And as we were waiting for him to finish we visited a few places like the lake Champex-lac, many macaroon stores in Chamonix and enjoyed living in Courmayer. So here are some photos. Enjoy!

The UTBM finishers

A trip to High Tatras

So last week I was on a vacation in High Tatras and it was awesome. I would have to say my favorite trip was Prosiecka dolina. We saw some small waterfalls and climbed ladders and stones. But the waterfall it self was suuuuper small 😀 .

These are some pics from Kvacianska dolina. As you can see there were some goofy goats, that were stealing food from us and some waterfalls (you can’t tell I love taking pics of water can you?) and forests.

These shots are from Prosiecka dolina. I made a lot of photos there and this is the start.

#waterfall

Some view photos…

And some pictures of me and my friends or flowers 😉

Oh, I almost forgot. There were some extra friendly butterflies that sat on our hands, legs, heads and noses apparently 😉 .

Hope you like this blog. I am sad to announce that it’s one of my last summer travel blogs. 😦 But let me know if you would like to see some back to school themed blogs. Also like this post if you like hiking and mountains ( that’s two likes from my parents). 

Have fun the last summer days

Packing tips and tricks

So today I was packing for my trip to High Tatras (blog post coming) and this idea came to me: why don’t I make a packing blog post. As you have seen I travel a lot so here are my best tips and tricks for packing!

First you have to see how many days are you going to be away so you don’t bring too much or too little. Also consider your luggage. If your going for three to five days I recommend a backpack. If you are staying a week or eight to nine days pack into a suitcase. And if you are going for a long trip like two weeks and more, bring your biggest suitcase.

If you are going by a plane remember if you paid for hand luggage or checked luggage. Or you can always just throw random things into a backpack to make your suitcase lighter 😉 .

A good organizer tip is to layout your stuff on the floor or on your bed before you put it in your suitcase. Just plan out all your outfits or clothes and accessories, books… It really helps to see what you forgot.pack.jpg

Now for space saving. These tips are from my mum so you better pay attention!  Tip 1: Stuff socks into your shoes. Tip 2:Take clothes that you can combine. Tip 3: Wear your biggest clothing item (like a jacket or something). I found a space saving makeup tip: Pack your smallest bottle or amount of makeup or concealer or your smallest eyeshadow/ contour pallet. And if you don’t want a heave lipstick pack a tinted lip balm like the ones I use.baby lips  (1)

These were some of my packing tips. Sorry if this blog had a little less pictures than usual, but don’t worry the next one will be full of them. 😀 I hope you enjoyed this blog and if you did give it a like and let me know in the comment some of your packing tips so I can learn more. Just kidding I refuse to learn in summer 😉

Have fun packing

Ps: Last tip is that I always pack the night before so I don’t stress in the morning

What to do when you are bored in summer

So I don’t know about you, but I am never bored in summer and I mean never. My mom plans my whole summer so there are only a few days that I am home. And on those days I usually re-pack. But if you are bored here are some things you can do.

Try to do a DIY: Now I wrote try because I am not really good at crafts. But it can be fun to at least try! So browse Pinterest (plus this step works like boredom killer too 😉 ) and find a cool DIY. I personally love food DIY’s .

unnamed (25).jpg

Start working out: Ok we all want to have that bikini body and when you are bored start working out not only will it help you but you will not be bored, trust me. I like working out with Cassey Ho aka Blogilates. She’s a great instructor and motivator. She also has some healthy food recipes. Her site is called http://www.blogilates.com and her channel is called Blogilates too. My BFF Koca likes her too.

Start a blog or a YouTube channel: This is my personal favorite 😀 . If you start a blog or a channel you will never be bored again! I think this is a thing everyone can do. I can’t really explain how you will not be bored, but you will find yourself worrying about it more and more.

Try a new hobby: Also part of the point above. Summer is the best time to start something new. It doesn’t mean only instruments and a new sport count as a hobby. For example learn how to braid or try to recreate a hairstyle,try painting or drawing, take photos… see there is a lo of small stuff and it can be fun. Just experiment.

 Travel: It doesn’t have to be a place far away from your home, it can be local. You can just walk around the historic part or go on a hike if you have a hill near by. If you can drive, take a road trip or you can just go to the mall like me and my BFF Koca that I mentioned earlier.Another option is camping witch I am going to do really soon.  But you can go to a crazy place like Thailand or The Bahamas if you can 😉 .

Hope you liked this blog full of nice photos if I might say. I know my blogs haven’t been about fashion lately but I’m hoping to extend my topics. If you noticed I am officially http://www.fashionbyteens.com! So I’m hoping this blog could be fashion and lifestyle+tips and tricks . Comment what posts would you like to see next.

Have fun not being bored 😀

A trip to Bulgaria

So you may be wondering: Where were you the last two weeks? I was in Bulgaria with my aunt and grandma. We didn’t explore much except trips around the town searching for gifts 😀 . So here are some sea and pool pictures and little kittens and sea birds.

IMG_20160719_044831

So this is a picture from 4:50 a.m. from a plane. We watched the sunrise too but it was difficult to photograph.

The first one is an overview of the pool and the second one is how are hotel looked from one side of the street.

These are some sea pictures. I think you can tell I love to photograph the waves crashing. 🙂

Here are some little kittens that we found hanging out around the hotel. The grey one got more attention because she was super cute.

Some additional pictures of a sea bird (and there were so many of them) and some pretty flowers.

IMG_20160723_204933

Now I felt like this picture needed to be added without the bird and the flowers, because it’s so beautiful and the colours are amazing. I took this picture I think the second day.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures and the blog. If you would like to see more pictures follow me on Instagram (little self promo never hurt 😀 ) @nattyk04 . Please tell me in the comments what summer blogs would you like to see next and give this post a like.

Have fun taking pictures

Summer essentials

So summer is a time when our hair and skin need more attention then ever. That’s why I made a list of the top picks for skin, hair and fun stuff. Enjoy.

Hair: My hair is extremely dry not just during summer so I like to use a repair cream for my hair besides my shampoo. Also I like to use hairspray and oil.

Skin: This is an obvious one but always use sunscreen. I would know because I got sunburned this year. A good tip if you get sunburned is to use aloe vera ice cubes or aloe vera lotion. It helps a lot. Also for you sun and sea dehydrated skin use moisturizer or face cream.

Beach:Some of the beach essentials are a beach bag, towel and for me a camera or a phone. Of course you need a hat to protect your head. And if you want to know more about summer fashion check out Summer fashion and Bikini fashion. Floaties are a huge trend this year so I would recommend those. Also don’t forget to pack some water too. Fruit infused water helps you drink more so try using that.

 I forgot to mention that bikini bag. I use a bag like it when I go swimming and it’s really helpful. 

I hope you liked this blog and that it helped you. If you think I forgot something comment.Also next week I am going to Bulgaria so that will be another travel blog.

Have fun in summer

Sicily- a paradise island

 

So you guessed it. I’m in Sicily. This is my second time I’m here and it’s perfect like last year. We are living in a villa. It has a great pool and a huge garden. There is also a vegetable garden and a lemon plant. There is also a beautiful beach. It’s a natural beach and there’s not a lot of people often. The temperature here is amazing and weather is perfect. Yesterday we went down to Noto and got some ice cream. I had Nutella and mum had coffee. Here are the pictures. Enjoy! 

This is from our visit in Noto.

The beach.

These are some of the flowers and the pool.

Hope you enjoyed this blog. I’m so sorry that it came out this late but there were problems with wifi, pictures, traveling or just me being lazy. I will make it up to you later this week I will post a small blog.

Have fun traveling

Slumber party

So currently  I’m on a slumber party with my best friend Koca that I mentionend earlier. We decided to do a sleep over blog and here are some of are tips and tricks. Enjoy!

Invitations: We think that invitations are better for when you have a big party or a birthday party.unnamed (5)

Food: We think that you should have (in the summer) some fruit, ice cream obviously and some good drinks like smoothies or juices. You can’t also forget some popcorn and chocolate. 😀 Also you can make some food DIYs.

Things you can do: There’s absolutely no limits with this. From nails to face masks from karaoke to chasing your friend’s dog. But when it’s summer you will probably stay in the pool all day.

Outfits: Yesterday  we pretty much just stayed in are swimsuits and then some comfy clothes. If your going to a new friend’s house or it’s a big sleepover bring some nice pajamas.

Hope you enjoyed this blog. Sorry it came out late but I was away last week. Also I had this idea that in summer especially in Sicilly I will blog more often. Tell me if you like it or not. Have a great summer break! And…

Have on slumber parties
