What’s in my Backpack?!?!

Hi guys! So this post (if you haven’t read the title) is going to be about what’s in my backpack. I have seen a lot of YouTubers doing this but I thought I would add a wee bit extra and throw in some essentials I like to have for school. So without further procrastination (big word of the day Ta Dah !!) let’s get into this post! 

My Backpack! 

I got this backpack from Amazon and the minute I saw it I immediately fell in love with it! I love how boho and relaxed looking it is and it’s so comfy to wear! I’ve had a wee test run with it around the house and immediately missed walking down to school with my friends with a bag on my back! 

 And it’s so much bigger and prettier than in the picture!

What’s actually in my bag πŸ˜‚

So first of all can I just say… ITS SO BIG!!!! AND SPACIOUS!!!! I just love it so muchπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ but seriously it is! 😊 When I went to Tescos with my friend, my mum and my wee brother David, we were walking down the first aisle we saw a HUGE section of back to school supplies! Obviously I wanted everything but knowing that it was too much and I have a huge amount of stationary  I settled for a Panda Sharpener (also super cute 🐼)  

    
 I told you!!!                                                 I also bought a ruler that’s a calculator… I mean who is that smart?!?! It’s ingenious (or its just me being stupid πŸ˜³πŸ˜πŸ˜‚) here’s a pic!  

And I love that it is my favourite colour, GREEN! πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š

The next thing that I got that day was this big Pukka Pad kinda set thing that came with loads of things I don’t need right now but might in the future and that’s why I got itπŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’šπŸ’™ 

 I just need to be prepared but the only thing I will be having in my bag from that set is either the green or blue notepad (you decide tell me which one in the comments)

Now for the pencil Case!βœοΈβœ’οΈ

I got my pencil case and pencils in California and because I love bright colours I loved it! And of Course  it is covered in sweeties 🍭Here’s a picture of my snazzy lookin’ pencil case!  

 It’s from Dylan’s Candy Bar πŸ˜† 

 
I also got a tub for my pack lunch (not that exciting but hey!) it’s got my 2 favourite colours and it came with a water bottle so I don’t have to buy another one for my pack lunch! It fits into my bag really easily and can hold a lot of food in it which is goodπŸ˜‹ 

    
 
Now for the essentials!

I keep all my essentials in the front pouch so it doesn’t get mixed up with any homework or notesπŸ“–πŸ““πŸ““πŸ“ŠπŸ“„.   Here is a pic of all my school essentials πŸ˜‹πŸ‘πŸ˜‚ 

 these are my essentials πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

– EOS hand cream: I can’t remember the name but it’s really good and moisturising for people who have really dry hands like me.

– Vaseline: this is my favourite Vaseline scent, Cocoa Butter my friend actually introduced me too it because she had it in P5 and I used to sit next to her and spend the day bugging her to let me smell it! Sorry Amy! 

– Hand Sanitizer: I actually have this hanging from my bag but anyway! I love this one and I recently got it in California in Bath and Body Works it’s called Caribbean Escape and it is one of my favourites!  

 – A spare pencil: I don’t know about you but I lose my pencils all the time, either if it’s someone has borrowed it and forgot to give it back or even if it has fallen out somewhere and I never noticed but I always have a spare pencil! 

So that’s everything that’s in my bag!       I hope you enjoyed reading my post today and to all you out there who want more BTS posts I will be posting some DIYs soon so be sure to stay tuned! I have made some really cool pencils using washi tape and mod podge .

Have a great rest of your day and to however has gone back to school Happy Back To School! (Even though you might be dreading it!) to make you feel any better I’m going back next Wednesday so I don’t have much summer holidays left! 

BYE! πŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’šπŸ’™

 
 

Tricking my family !!Β 

Hey guys!  Hope u r all having a wonderful Sunday whatever u r up to πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™

Today I decided to play a practical joke on my family. I was using this awesome free app called Modiface. 

 
 It is said to be the most intuitive one-stop photo makeover app. There is in-app purchases to upgrade to give u more options like make up, skin care anti ageing etc.

  
 At the moment I have been just messing about with the hair app. 

 
So I sent my Nana, Gran and Aunty Gillian a photo message apparently showing that i dyed my hair red!!!

 
In fact I hadn’t, I had just used the app!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚   Can u believe it, they totally fell for it. My Mum and I strung them along for ages, text messages flying back and forth, was very funny. Eventually we confessed. Sorry guys 😜😜😜

 
By the way, its me Ari behind the mask! I am still choosing to stay anonymous at the moment just until I am abit older. πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’š

Back to this awesome app, it is really  easy to use. U either take a photo or use one u already have and bam start manipulating the image.  

Its great because u can see what hair colour, style will/wont suit u or like me, trick your family. 

Enjoy !!

POLYVORE❀️

hi guys! Today I’m going to be talking about this awesome fashion/beauty/home decor/art app that is now my favourite app. I’ve become abit obssessed with it !! πŸ’™β€οΈπŸ’šπŸ’œ

 
So what is it ?? 

  
Its official description is its a community powered social commerce site !!  In plain language it a global style community on a free app that helps you shop and style using the latest fashion trends.  

 It is a really fun app to use and u can create cool outfits, room decor styling etc.  

 Some of you might have already been using this for awhile, the app is used by millions of users worldwide so  what I am going to do is a step by step instruction post for those who havent.  

Step 1

Download the polyvore app 

  

Step 2 

The app 

When u go into the app it will look like this:  

 

You can create an account in a number of ways, by facebook, twitter or just a polyvore user account. If u dont want an account then just go onto create a set, will explain what this is in the next few sets. 

Step 3 

Create your profile

Go into the Me section and write your  profile. This bit of down to you. This is mine 

   
 

Step 4 

What the side bar icons mean.

 On the ipad the side bar is on the left hand side, on the smart phone, the bottom. 

  
  

Trends – current trends on the app. Ie most popular. 

For example: If a skater skirt was posted and 5,000 people liked it then according  to what you have been liking it might end up in your recommened Trends. 

Feed 

Just like facebook or pintrest this is your feed of other sets that people have been posting relating to people you are following or sets/ items u have liked. This enables u discover new people to follow and items to like or buy 

Create

So this is the bit where u get to create your own “sets”. So a set means a group of objects u have grouped together for ideas/ fashion statement/ outfits to buy.  Its like a mood board but not just for home decor but for fashion. 

So how do u do it 

Go into create and u will see add item, menu and publish. Firstly go into add item 

  
  U will see thumbnails descriptions eg fashion. Make sure u scroll down to see all the other options, its not just fashion. 

I am going to create a fashion set so I clicked into tops. U will then see hundreds of tops to choose from. 

So I see a top I like, I tap the picture and an enlarged picture wity drescriptions pops up on the side including where to buy it from. It also says add which I click on and this is then added to my empty screen 

You then go on in the same way to add  other items for your set 

Be creative, I like to add quotes, all accesories to my sets like watches, iphone cases, make up and hairstyles. 
  U can also add text and magazine articles. Its fab as it gives u lots of fonts to work with.   
Once you think are finish you press publish 

  You pick which category  u publish your set into. I am choosing beauty 

You then name the set. 

  You can share it on all social media platforms. Pintrest, facebook, instagram and even wordpress!! 

Shop 

Now what makes this app cooler is that u can shop directly through it. U just click on the item u wish to buy and it transfers you to the online shop. Be careful with this as u may be able to get tje items cheaper elsewhere but if u r ok with the prices there is no doubt its a cool and easy way to shop. 

  
Step 5 

The social aspect of this app 

With this app users are able to “❀️” your set, follow your account also comment and message. If your aim is to get loads of “followers” then it is recommended you like, comment and follow lots of peoples account. 

This is an example of someone I am following , can u see the black outline heart, that is what u click on to show u liked the set. 

  
In your profile page you can keep track of your followers, who u follow, sets, likes etc.  

 
Activity section 

This shows u goals u have achieved, basically the activity on your account 

  
Mailbox 

Where all your mail is, enables u to reply from there

I hope this gets u excited to use this really cool app or helps u use it better 

Bye Ari πŸ’™πŸ’œβ€οΈπŸ’š

Hiya!! This post is all about my watermelon obsession I have been having for the last few months. Its one of my fave fruits and super healthy and very refreshing on a hot day… Not that we are getting any of those in Bonny Scotland yet this year!! 

The use of the watermelon image is becoming something of a trend in clothes and accessories and I am following the trend and buying some of the cool things available. 

 This cute vest is from Gap kids and the purse from Accessorize 
I am absolutely in πŸ’œ with this amazing drinks cup from New Look. I’m so taking this to California with me!

If u r feeling crafty then u can try this easy πŸ‰ DIY that I found on Pinterest   love potato stamping 

 
Had a try at this nail art today on my toenails.  I need a bit more practice but these look so cute and super summery.

  

 To finish off this fruity post, here is the pic collage I made and then used as a screensaver  and wallpaper for my iPhone .

Minnie Mouse Bow πŸ’πŸ½πŸ’‡πŸΎπŸ™‹πŸΌ

Hey! I’m super excited for this post as its another hair one!! πŸ’œβ€οΈπŸ’‡ After this go and check out my other hair post for some of my hairstyling tips and tricks. So let’s get into the hair tutorial!!!!!

πŸŽ€ Minnie Mouse Bow πŸŽ€

Step 1: Start by putting your hair into a  high ponytail making sure it’s nice and smooth so it will look neat. 


Step 2: Bring your hair over onto your face like thisπŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡ 

Now your going to want to get another hair tie and like kinda bunch it up ( neatly! ) and tie it so it stays.  
 Step 3: Part the little piece of hair equally and neatly making sure that there isn’t any flyaways that will cause it to look messy.  

  Step 4: As you can see I still have a strip of hair at the front that at this step you can braid it or anything else that’s cool or you can just leave it like that. 

  
Step 5:So still parting the hair you want to grab the strip and bring it back through the parting of the ponytail and then secure it at the back with a pin. Voila !! πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™

   

   

If you want you can add any accessories to make this awesome hair style even better. For a Minnie Mouse look add in the middle a red bow πŸŽ€πŸŽ€πŸŽ€πŸŽ€

Talking of hair accessories, these are my current faves at the moment. !! 

 
I am always watching you tube hair tutorials. My current faves are 

Luxy Hair.  Mimi is so lovely and her instructions are so easy to follow. Love her πŸ’œ

Cutegirlshairstyles. Wide range of hairstyles to choose from and they are posted weekly. This is the video blog from the mother of Brooklyn and Bailey who I love πŸ’œ

Hope u all had/have a great day.
