In a Pinch

Being a student, and not always having a lot of money at my disposal, I've learned a few tricks on how to get by for a while without certain products. Here are some of the things that I've learned.

1. Mascara can double as liquid eyeliner

I wear liquid eyeliner every day and one day before going to class I realized I had used up all my eyeliner, and in a panic I used the little brush from the liquid eyeliner and dipped it into my mascara tube. I painted it on just like I normally would if it had been liner and guess what? It not only worked, but it lasted longer than my eyeliner usually does! 

2. Conditioner works better than shaving cream

One of my friends posted on Pinterest about how you can use conditioner as shaving cream, so when I ran out of shaving cream, I tried it. It did work very well, and the conditioner made my skin super soft!

3. Curtain rods can be used for more hanging space

The only thing I don't like about my apartment, is that I only have a tiny wardrobe to hang clothing, so I bought a curtain rod, and attached it between my wall, and my wardrobe, and it hasn't fallen yet and I've had it up since the beginning of August, so I guess it works! And it has given me a ton of extra space to hang things.

I will have to do another post related to this, as I seem to come up with new solutions to the things I either don't have or run out of. It's quite the adventure. Anyways, I am currently working on another headband craft (I have a headband obsession) and will be back soon to post it!

Love, love

Media life

Currently I am in an experimental film class and so far it has been really fun!

This is my first experimental video that I made. I wanted to make a book come to life. 50 layers of Aftereffects later, I did!

Also here are a couple photos I took for an adorable couple at my school recently.


I will have several more projects up this week too! I'm so behind on sharing everything with you all!

Glitter headband DIY

Hey guys! Here is my glittery accessory that I made for one of my best friends' bachelorette party!

I wanted to have a sparkly headband so I went to the dollar store, picked up this little headband and an assortment of glitter. I didn't want a thin headband but having a big headband would've been obnoxious, so this little guy was perfect.

Then I used mod podge to cover the headband with glue to hold the glitter.

After it had dried, I sprayed the top of the headband with a lot of hairspray so that the sparkles wouldn't go anywhere. So far it has lasted pretty well! It has survived travel, being dropped, etc, and it still is fully covered in sparkles!

I'll be back tomorrow to post some of the videos and photo sessions I've been working on! (They are already done, so I have no excuse not to post them!)

Love, love

Hello Fall Break

I'm so excited to be home for fall break because the missing pieces of my craft box will now be restored to it! Also I am happy to be with my family.

While on spring break, I did some filming in Hartford for my avant-garde film class. Here is a quick photo I took of my brother who went with me.

Tomorrow is my last day home and then it's a busy week of filming, editing, portrait sessions, and one of my very best friends' wedding!

I am making something very sparkly to wear for the bachelorette party, so that will definitely be featured on here! :)

I am revealing something big soon regarding my upcoming freelance business! Stay tuned!

Love, love
