DIY Memory Pebble Pot

Hello everyone,

Long time, no speak. I hope you're all doing well and having a fabulous June so far! I thought I'd come back and share with you this little DIY of mine that I've been using for when I go on holiday and want to keep some memories. It's great for this time of year now to make this as I'm sure many of you are planning on travelling soon and working on your tans if not already been on holiday. 

Let's jump into it...

As you can see this is a very simple idea but looks good and is great for recalling where you've travelled and to get nostalgic re-reading them.

Above is all you need;

- Sharpie/s (Colours of your choice)
- Stones/Pebbles/Shells (from location travelled)
- Glass jar/dish/bowl 

So you just need a pen/marker that can write on the pebbles or shells and a dish to keep them in, very simple. You then write on the Location and Date of travel and place them in your dish.

Below you can see closer up some of the things written onto the stones, with some of the location names shortened so they fit on.

To take this further you could even add in battery powered lights like these below, which will make the dish look very fancy (and like it took you longer than 5 minutes 😄)

Or you could even make individual dishes for separate trips...e.g. make a sandy shell one themed from the Bahamas? 

I hope you enjoyed this little idea, comment below or tweet me @teacupsnmakeup and tell me if you created it yourself! Thank you for reading <3 and I'll speak to you in the next post xx

10 Holiday Buys for £10 and under ☀️

Hey everyone,

I'm back again with another new blog I thought I'd share with you some items I've found online that are great for taking on holiday at £10 or under! If you're going on holiday or just staying in your hometown, these items can be merged into everyday outfits with ease. I thought I'd do some searching around and find these more budget-friendly items for the summer and to bring with you if you're going on holiday. 

(1)Sunglasses to me are essential..and these ones below are very chic and stylish for only £9.99 and on there website they have tons more with different styles to suit you better. 
(2)So this one may not be an essential but it is very cute and very cheap..for £3.99 you can spruce up any set of keys and give them a fun, summery feel.
(3)I've seen people layering these mesh crop tops everywhere..why not snap one yourself before they all go out of stock...
(4)Mint is definitely becoming my new favourite colour...for £8.00 this Faux suede cap is so cute I might not be able to resist.
(5)Bodysuits are such a trend at the moment...especially those featuring lacing/lattice string detailing, H&M are selling lots of them at the moment in different colours and styles..great for pairing with some comfy shorts or a slimline skirt.
(6)Playsuits are such an easy item of clothing to throw over a bikini or swimming costume..and these come in many different patterns on H&M for £7.99.
(7)Flip flops are also an essential for summer holidays and going on the beach...and these cute jungle patterned ones are only £8.00 at Accessorize!
(8)Why not jazz up your travelling experience with a pretty blue passport holder...make travel more fun :)
(9)Skirts are such an easy thing to style on holiday as they near enough go with everything..and choosing them in block colours makes pairing a lot easier! This wrap skirt is only £7.99 and would be perfect for throwing over a bikini or bodysuit.
(10)Finally..number 10...culottes are such a staple piece recently...I mainly see people styling black culottes but why not step out of your comfort zone and get some patterned ones to make your holiday outfits much more stylish.

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this summery post!

5 Songs I've Been Loving #1

Hey everyone,

I thought I'd do something a bit different and share with you a few of my favourite songs at the moment. I've really been loving discovering new artists and branching out with the genres of music that I usually listen to. So in this blog post I will be sharing with you 5 of my favourite songs from the month of July. 

I hope you enjoy!

No. 1 

Blue Lights - Jorja Smith

I've never come across this artist until recently when I heard it playing in a shop. Its a great take on the song "Sirens" by Dizzee a much slower version, with less rap and much more harmonising.


No. 2

Longing For You - D/C

I came across this artist after discovering their song "I Love Gold" and ever since have been loving their unique sounds.


No. 3
Doses - Bonzai

I stumbled across this song from a missguided advert which recently played on the tv....
Ever since, I've been playing it's definitely very different to anything I usually listen to but I love it.


No. 4
Dancing On My Own - Calum Scott

You may have already heard this song before as it's currently number 10 in the UK Top Charts...I found it whilst listening to the music channel on tv and absolutely love his voice in it.


No. 5
Sometimes - Kiko Bun

This final song is much more summery and upbeat to the others, with a reggae beat and happy feel. It really puts me in a good mood when I listen to it :D

What artists/songs have you been loving this month? Do you have a July playlist to check out? Let me know by leaving a comment or tweet me @teacupsnmakeup

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed reading and discovering some new sounds!

P.S I have a whole playlist for the month of July..for songs I've been loving and tracks I have recently discovered, if you'd like to check it out:
