DIY - Disco Mirror

With Christmas and New Years over, the purse strings are unsurprisingly feeling slightly battered and bruised as we attempt once more to build on our savings. Sadly for me, I am feeling the affects more than ever as I find myself moving back down South for 2014. Naturally this has meant that the purse strings have been on lockdown for what seems like an eternity! So, in my bid to continue saving I have decided to get creative with some old items cluttering up our flat to produce new home decorations, while not spending any money! 

What you’ll need - 

A framed mirror
A collection of old CDs and DVD’s
Kitchen shears or very strong scissors
Glue gun or craft glue

Be bold with GOLD!

As we find ourselves waking up to the 4th January already it appears that the post Christmas blues are upon us. As thousands of people all over the UK find their body clocks dreading Monday morning its clear that we all love that bit of sparkle Christmas brings! So, despite the New Year celebrations now being behind us I've decided that I am going add my own bit of sparkle to my wardrobe and be bold with GOLD! From shoes to nails gold seems to be a firm favorite with those in the know and after its success on this years catwalks gold looks to be a hot trend which is here to stay. I’ve been completely won over with gold this season, teamed with black it creates a chic classic look suitable for any occasion despite the festive season having been and gone! Obviously its a given that its not completely suitable to wear a sequined gold dress on your daily outing to the newsagents however, adding  some subtle gold accessories to your outfit can give you that little bit of sparkle you need. January is also a super time to bargain hunt as with high street sales offering up to 80% off theres no reason to miss out!
