DIY a holiday wardrobe: KIMONO
It’s finally Summer! The holidays have just started and I’m really excited to work on loads of fun blog posts for you.
The kimono has been everywhere this Summer and I’ve wanted one for ages, but I’ve never found one that would go with everything. So, DIYing one seemed like the perfect solution. In total this kimono only cost £5.00 (with fringing included) and I was able to customise it to my liking. I’m planning to make 2 or 3 more of these so I can mix and match!
What you need:
. Scissors.
. A large scarf or piece of fabric.
. Thread and a needle/a sewing machine.
. Pencil/tailor’s chalk.
. Decoration.
What to do:
Take your fabric and hem any raw edges. To do this, fold over the edge and sew along so it doesn’t fray or rip.
When you’ve done this, fold the piece of fabric in half lengthways.
With your fabric folded in half, find the middle. Draw a line down the middle using your pencil.
Cut along the line, but only cut the top half of the folded fabric. Don’t cut all the way through. 
Hem the edges of the line you cut. This will be the front of your kimono!
Now with the fabric still folded in half take the edges that will act as sleeves. 
Pin these edges together, but only go about 20cm up from the bottom, so you leave a large hole for your arms to go through.
Sew the edges and you’re done! Go around your kimono and cut any loose threads off and add any decoration you want.
That’s it! This is a really simple DIY, but if there’s any part you don’t understand please feel free to ask me on here or twitter.
I hope you’re all having a lovely Summer and be sure to come back for more posts very soon.

Healthy & Simple 3 Ingredient crepes
When I first started eating better, my ‘go-to’ breakfast meal was yogurt, cereal and apple. Looking back on it I realise how much I was missing out on and how boring I was.
I think many people associate ‘healthy’ food as not being so tasty and flavourful but that’s definitely not true. This basic crepe mix is high in calcium and protein and has no sugars. They take about 10 minutes to put together and they give you all the energy you need to start your morning. 
Before I tell you how to make them, I’m aware that not everyone may have buckwheat flour in their house, but plain flour, wholewheat flour and rice flour will also work! Also, this recipe is halved so the full amount would have one egg. The halved recipe makes 4 crepes, so you can double the recipe and keep it in the fridge, if you’d like to.
What you need: 
. 125ml of almond milk.
. 1/2 cup of flour (I used buckwheat).
. 1/2 egg
. Toppings.
What to do: 
Take 1/2 a cup of your flour of choice and put it in a bowl.
Crack your egg in a bowl and whisk it with a fork. Put half the egg mixture aside. 
Whisk half the egg mix into your flour - don’t worry if the mix looks a little weird. The egg won’t mix in smoothly. 
Pour in your milk and whisk as you pour. Whisk for a few minutes. The mix should be pretty thin and smooth.
Heat a little oil/spray in your pan and use a ladle to put the mix in the pan. Tilt the pan so the batter spreads to fit the whole pan.
Cook for a minute or two on each side and flip with a spatula when ready.
Now for the fun bit! Take your spread of choice. I chose greek yogurt, but a nut butter, jam or nutella would also work. Use a knife/spoon and spread it all over the crepes. Add your fruit onto one half of the crepe and fold it over. Drizzle with honey and top with the rest of your fruit.
I hope you enjoyed this and if you try it out please send me a photo! :)

Miss Sporty Clubbing Manicure Tutorial*
Happy Friday!
It’s the second post in the Miss Sporty series (see the first here). It is so hot in the UK at the moment and it is definitely the time to wear bright, bold colours. Today I’m going to show you how to achieve this super fun manicure that’s perfect for any Summer occasion.
What you need - Miss Sporty nail polishes in: #302 ‘Paparazzi’, #453 ‘Popcorn’, #326 ‘Orange Crush’ and Glossy Tech Top Coat.
What to do:
Apply the Glossy Tech Top Coat on all of your nails. This will prevent them from being stained by the coloured polishes and allow the base coats to go on more smoothly. 
Apply 1-2 coats of ‘Paparazzi’ on all of your nails except your ring finger. 
Apply 1-2 coats of ‘Popcorn’ onto your accent nail. Allow all of your nails to dry.
Take a bobby-pin and dip it in ‘Orange Crush’.
Dot the bobby-pin head all over your accent nail.
Allow these to dry and then apply the Glossy Tech Top Coat for a gorgeous finish.
I hope you enjoyed learning how to achieve this look!
