DIY - Tote bag from IKEA rug

Tereza Šťastná

I have a great DIY for you. Easy peasy tote bag from IKEA rug. It's done in couple of hours and it's quite cheap so you will manage to make it pre-vacay stress. I discovered this amazing DIY on my favorite blog Honestly WTF, so all the credit goes there. Anyway, it would be a shame not to show you the process and the result of mine. I admit the video was made a year ago so I can say, that the bag has been worn by me ever since.  

And when you're done with your bag, I would love to see the result, so don't forget to tag me on your social media. My IG account @dogandpineapple:) 

You'll need: 

  • IKEA SIGNE rug
  • sewing machine with heavy duty needle and thread
  • leather or faux leather handles 
  • tassles and a string

DIY - bronzer

Tereza Šťastná

There's no way to finish make-up without using bronzer these days, especially if your face is not very defined, like in my case.  

Last week I just ran out of mine I used until now so I decided to make a new one, by myself. It's incredibly easy and home-made bronzer smells very nice and you don't need many things. Plus to make one doesn't cost even 5,- crowns and you'll have it in organic quality.  

So, what do you need? 

All in all, only thing you really need is cocoa powder. Buy the baking cocoa powder not Granko or Nesquik. Duch cocoa is the base to which you can add potato or corn starch, that will help you dilute the final shade. If you have some leftover cosmetic glitter pigment in nude or slightly orange, you can add that too. I won't tell you how much of what you need because that all depends on what kind of shade you want. You can also add carrot powder (you'll find one online) to make your bronzer more orange. 

Mix thoroughly and press the mixture into prepared container.  

It still is a powder though, so dip the brush and dust off the excess from it. You can also buy pressing kit and formula that will hod it together, but it won't be so organic anymore.

3 Cosmetic Products From Your Pantry

Tereza Šťastná

Us girls, we spend a s***load on cosmetic products. And hardly ever admit it all. 

But why to buy something chemical, that you can get the same result with something you can eat and probably already have at home and it costs literary nothing? Well meanwhile you do the math, here are top 3 products that will become your cosmetic bag staples:

Cornstarch

Cornstarch is Pinterest's ingredient number 1. From making home-made glitter slimes to being base of home-made cosmetic, it is amazing translucent powder on its own. So if you want to set your make-up, you can save those 500,- CZK ($20) in the piggy bank for your Stuart Weitzman's Nudist shoes (as I do right now) and just powder up with some cornstarch that costs like 30,- CZK ($ 1.1) in organic quality for full box. 

Coconut oil

Looking for eye-makeup remover, heavy duty cream, nourishing hair treatment for your split ends, body oil, lip balm, cuticle cream, elbow nourishment? Look no more and use coconut oil for all listed above. It truly lives up to its hype and it is so handy especially when you want to travel and need all that precious suitcase space. Plus you'll smell like a Bounty bar and your skin will be smooth like a baby's butt. 

White Yoghurt

When you spend whole day on the sun and have fair skin as I do, you will be red AF and most probably in lot of pain. Your savior for the day? Plain white yoghurt. It will soothe the burn, hydrate your skin and you'll feel good as new soon enough. It is also very good for your hair as it reliefs itchiness, dry scalp and it will help out with dandruff problem. 

You can play with these as a base and add some ingredients to them like cucumber or aloe vera to yoghurt, cocoa to the cornstarch for basic bronzer, beeswax to the coconut oil. There are no limits to your fantasy. So next time your about to hit Sephora, head towards the grocery store.
