An Experiment You Should Try

An Experiment you should try


Welcome back glitter squad 😃😃😃

Today I'm going to try an experiment and a great hack that I think you should attempt. You don't need much for it and anything you need you can just find it around the house.

Equipment needed:


  • cups x3 (ideally of the same height)
  • 3 knifes (again ideally of the same length)

This expirment allows you to have a holder to place something in the middle like the picture below.






this is what mine turned out like


The first step is you need to place the 3 cups in a triangle.

Then you need to put the knifes in a triangle (that will stay there when you let go.)

Now it should be strong enough to hold something on the knifes.

I had so much fun doing this. It might take a few tries to get it right but you will get it in the end. I like that the equipment needed for it can just be found around your house.

I hope you enjoyed this blog.

March Favourites 2017

Sorry I couldn't post last weekend but I'm doing an extra post this week (this one) to make up for it.

Welcome back >_<

Today im going to show you my march favourites hat I enjoyed last month.

10)Magnet Pencil pots

I really like these because they are magnetic so you can put it anywhere. I got them from TIGER and they are avaliable in pink and black.

9)Lush Magic Wand

This month I have really enjoyed having a lush product to go with my bath/shower especially the lush magic wand

8)DIY heart

I decided to make a DIY plushie and I have enjoyed putting it up in different places around my room. I will try and post a blog one time on how to make it.

7) Linen Tape

I found this linen tape in hobbycraft and it is really cool because it's like washi tape but you can create your own pattern on it.

6)Spiral bobbles

At Claires, i brought some spiral bobbles. I prefer these to normal bobbles becuase they don't hurt as much when you take them out or having it in your hair throughout the day.

5)Streching band

This is a great stretching band to use and can help take your stretching to the next level. It is a Limber Stretch London product and has a great quality.

4)Glitter Pencilcase

This pencil case was brought at WHsmith and again is of really great quality. It has multiple pockets (in the middle and at the sides) and the best thing is it's really glittery and sparkly.

3)Glitter Ombres

Im obsessed with these patterns right now and I love to put them in background on pics like you saw on my blog of 10 organisational hacks and DIY's because I put a glitter ombre background of the Whiteboard.

2)Zoella Lets spritz

I love this perfume so much and it smells sooo nice. I like how on the packaging they have nice flowers in the background of the perfume and the perfume is pink, however the pink doesn't show up on your skin.

1) The Hunger Games

 I think The Hunger Games is a great series of books. I contains 3 books and I think is a great book to read.

Sorry that there are no pictures on the blog because I haven't had a chance to upload because we have been on holiday. I will try to add pics on some time.

Touch screen pen!

 Welcome back Glitter Squad 😍😍


Today, I decided to make a Touch Screen Pen. I got this idea off a youtube video (link at the end) however I changed it a little bit.

All you need is:


  • Foil
  • something to decorate it (optional)
  • Small pencil.
Lets get started! 😆

First, you need to cover your pencil with foil making sure it isn't to tight around the pencil, but tight enough to hold it.

Then, if you want any decorations then cover it I decided to use washi tape so I can just stick it on.

There you are you have a touch screen pen. You might have to mess around with it to get the right side otherwise it should still work.

5 organisational hacks and DIY's



In this blog I am going to show you 5 organisational hacks and DIY's. This includes:
  • A clutter box
  • Cupboard organiser
  • Wardrobe Hacks
  • Cable organiser
  • A DIY whiteboard.
These hacks and DIY's are so simple and they are really easy to make.

Lets get started!!

Clutter Box

We are going to start with the Clutter box. A clutter box is where you can store stuff throughout the day or week. You just put things in the way or things that don't have a place to put them in the box. I chose a day to organise mine so it doesn't overflow.

Things needed:

  • All you need is a box!!



This is the box I decided to use. It can be any size you need it depends how often you are going to use it.



And then throughout the week you can just dump stuff you need to sort out in there and this is what it turns out like.

Cupboard Organiser

This hack is just something I find really useful to help me know where to find things when you need them. You can organise anything you want using this hack it doesn't have to be a cupboard.

Things needed:


  • Name labels




All you need to do is cut the name labels to size and write what you are storing on it. Then stick it on the shelf.


I used this hack to split  my work, activities and notebooks within my cupboard because it was all just in there and I didnt known where to look for things.


Wardrobe Hack!

This hack is useful if you are trying to sort your wardrobe out and you don't know what to get rid of. To do this hack you simply don't need anything.


For this hack all you need to do is turn all your hangers around. Then when you wear something turn it back round to the way it was facing before. Eventually, you will realise what clothes you're wearing and what clothes your not and you won't be wearing the same clothes everyday: you know what you've worn and what you haven't.

   Cable Organiser

In this DIY, you make a tube to store you're cables and prevent them from being tangled.

Things needed:


  • A cardboard tube
  • Washi tape
  • Decorations for around the edge (Optional)






First, get your cardboard tube and stick the washi tape around it covering it up completely. Secondly, if you have decorations stick or glue them on.





Wait for it to dry then you can fold your cable up and put it inside. I put my USB cable for my Ipad in in.


DIY whiteboard

This DIY is probably my favourite of the lot because you can change the background whenever you want. 

Things needed:

  • A picture frame
  • Picture for the background
  • Whiteboard Rubber (Optional)
  • Whiteboard pen


All you need to do is put a picture in the background of your picture frame then your done.




You can buy any whiteboard pen thats not permanent and it can just rub out whe you write on the picture frame.







                                             I used an inkview whiteboard marker.
