Happy Sunday loves! Looking for an easy DIY bracelet display? You may already have exactly what you need. Lately I’ve been obsessed with Air Wick multicoloured black edition candles. I’ve bought more than a few in the past month and have since collected a small arsenal of left over candle glasses. Their scents and changing LED colours are a little more addictive than I’d like to admit.

What to do with them all? Clean them out and use them as accessory storage of course. Double bang for your buck. I found scraping off excess wax and scrubbing with dish washing liquid and an old scourer worked perfectly to clean the glasses. You can forget having to buy any more makeup brush holders/accessory displays for a while. Nice, eh? And if you are super clever (which I know you are), you can melt all the leftover wax into a new scented candle. Now go treat yourself something to celebrate being so savvy… I hope you’ve enjoyed your weekend! xx

PS – if you keep an eye out, you can sometimes find the candles for 50% off. I get mine from Coles.

BLOGGER PHOTO EDITING SECRETS: ENHANCE EYES

brighten and enhance eyes with online photo editor picmonkey

I’m always asked what I use to enhance eyes in my images. When I don’t have access or time to drag out Photoshop, I jump onto PicMonkey online. It’s eye brighten feature is by far the most stress free way to get the result you want. No need for layers, filters, or special skills. If you can swipe your mouse back and forth, you can use their eye enhancer. It’s practically fool-proof.

(PS – There’s also features like; eye tint, mascara, eye liner, eyebrow pencil, eye shadow, and red-eye remover if your into that too)

To begin:

1 - Go to picmonkey.com > hover over edit or touch up > select your image

note: eye brighten works by deepening dark colours, making whites brighter, boosting colours, and sharpening the area. For a realistic effect, touch up the eye colours and whites separately. This avoids making the whites of the eyes too intense but allows a sharp colourful iris.

2 - Navigate to touch up (lipstick icon) > scroll and select eye brighten

Picmonkey eye enhancer - brighten, sharpen, increase colour

3 - Choose your brush size & settings > click and hold, swiping back and forth over eye area

note: don’t worry, you can’t edit the same place twice, so swipe away and adjust the lighten/fade settings before pressing apply.

That’s all there is to it folks! Happy editing!
