Things to do in summer ☀️
So for most of you, summer has already began and you’re off school or college and have a whole summer of fun to have 😊 I have come up with a few ideas you and your friends or family can do over summer to ensure you don’t get bored, and you don’t blow the bank! Enjoy 💗
Water balloon fights 💦☀️
All you need is water balloons and a couple of friends, you can even use water guns/pistols! This idea is great for summer as you can cool off from the sun and have fun!
Morning walks or jogs 🌈
This is a perfect way to maintain your fitness during the summer, and by waking up early you can avoid the heat.
Come dine with me evenings
For a week during the summer, invite a few friends round for dinner and cook a lovely meal which they can rate out of 10. Each night a different friend will host the night!
Summer is the perfect time to clear out those old weeds and plant a few flowers.
All you need is lots of movies and lots of popcorn for this idea!

Near to the bath section of shops, I tend to see these “Fun Bath Crayons” for children aged 2+, and in my opinion they’re a rip off! £4.99 ($7.56 and €6.70) for just two crayons.
However, they do look very fun and creative for toddlers in the bath, and wash off very easily, so I thought why not try and make my own…
You will need
- 1/4 bar of soap – Dove works very well, due to the opaqueness
- Coloured non-toxic dye – food colouring or pen ink works well
- Empty lip balm tube- I had none of these lying around so I bought cheap lip balm tubes from Boots and discarded of the moisturising balm.
1/4 of a soap bar should make 3 crayons.
1. Break the bar of soap up into small chunks, and place in a microwave-proof bowl.
2. Next heat up the soap in 20 second intervals, ensuring it does not melt. After about a minute of being heated, the soap should be soft enough to mould.
3. At this point start to add the colour of your choice, kneeding it well in for even coverage. You can choose how opaque you would like the crayons to be depending on how much dye you use.
4. Once this is done heat again for 20 seconds to ensure it is still soft enough to work with. You can then “squish” the soap into the lip balm tube.
And there you have it! This is so inexpensive as everything I I used I had lying around the house. I also love the fact that you can use it on your face and it will wash off, as it’s just soap.
* WARNING * leaving the crayon on tiles for a long period of time may stain, depending on ink used.

It feels like forever since I last posted! I’ve just been very busy with exams and revision, as mentioned in the last post. Anyway, exams finish in about three weeks for me, and I actually feel like I’m going to have nothing to do!
Hopefully, this summer is going to be amazing! I will be completing my qualifying expedition in Peak District, for my Duke Of Edinburgh Silver Award, going on holiday to sunny Egypt, and taking part in the National Citizen Service (NCS).
To have something to look forward to after exams (although my summer doesn’t sound fun enough) I’d like to create a scrapbook, including some pictures and notes to remember 2015 by.
However, there is just one tiny problem… I have no clue how to even scrapbook! I’m not at all creative and don’t even know where or how to start! I’m also planning on buying everything with my own money, so I don’t want to buy very expensive items, that I’ll never use again.
If any of you do like to scrapbook as a hobby, or know any useful tips, please feel free to comment below! Anything is appreciated!! Thanks for your help in advance,

Hey guys! Right now is a crutial time for me and Demi, as we have a lot going on, with exams and revision.
I know I only spend a few hours on our blog per week, it all does add up! And right now I need to be spending them hours on school. ✏️
I hope you understand and we will defiantly be back in a few weeks! I also have some exciting blogging to do about my Duke Of Edinburgh Practice Expedition in Derbyshire in a few weeks time!
For anyone else having exams in a few weeks time we wish you good luck 😊💗
All the love,
So for me, coming up with an idea for someone’s party is nearly impossible!
For part 3 I decided to teach you guys to make a delicious chocolate treat, that’s perfect for sharing with friends and family! Enjoy!
So for part 2 I decided to show you how to make an origami swan/sweet holder. I think this idea is lovely for kids!
Step 1: Using squared paper, cut from a4, create two diagonal folds, meeting in the centre.
Step 2: Fold the two outer flaps to join in the middle.
Step 3: Fold the ‘cone like’ side in half. Make sure this this firmly creased.
Step 4: Turn the paper around, it should have two flaps like so.
Step 5. You will then need to push the two outer flaps inwards, and crease firmly.
Step 6: Turn the paper back around.
Step 6: Next, fold the tip back inwards, it does not need to be folded all the way.
Step 7: Using the previous crease line, fold in half length ways. Like so.
Holding the bottom of the swan, push the neck up and fold. You should be left with something like this.
Do the same with the beak and you’re done!
Here is what my swan looked like on my table once I filled it with sweets! I hope the pictures were clear and easy to understand, and remember you can be creative as you like with your swan!
So Easter is close by, and chocolate eggs were so last year! I have put together three unique and funky Easter gift ideas for your friends and family!
