DIY // Paper Book Covers

I love classic novels.
I have loved them ever since I was little and would watch adaptations of these books with my mum. I even started to read them properly when I was 14.
So recently my mother's best friend gave me a copy of the book of the complete Jane Austen collections, I was so happy as it mean't I wouldn't have to keep borrowing them from the library and when your a teenager without a lot of cash it's nice to have something you wanted without having to buy it yourself. Although I have one issue with this book......

I hate movie covers on books. 
They aggravate me something shocking!! I don't understand why? I mean I have gone into the likes of Waterstones and Easons with the purpose of buying a book I want but they only had a copy with the movies cover on it so I refused to by it. 
Members of my family and even some friends are confused about why I hate these kind of covers, and I can't even give them a proper answer I just hate them. I just do. Always have and I always will, that's just me.


Another thing about it is it's a pretty heavy book as it every single book she wrote in this one giant volume and I don't want to be carrying that around if I'm reading one of them, so I decided to separate the books and give them my own paper covers, so here's a little DIY on how I made them into individual books with their own covers.

Eye Candy // Chris Hemsworth ;)


Most famous for his roles as the hot viking god Thor and his most recent film role as the huntsman in Snow White and the Huntsman, Chris Hemsworth is definitely an actor to keep an eye on for his talent as well as his muscles ;)

Dragonflies


So on Friday night my mum asked if I wanted to come down and help out with her and her best friends' jewellery stall at the craft fair they were going to, I had nothing better to do so I agreed even if it did mean getting up at 8... (¬_¬)
 Of course I once again woke up late, my mother having to wake me up and only had 15 minutes to get ready. 

15 minutes is a very short amount of time to sort myself out. 

With my lion mane like hair shoved up in a messy top knot, the minimal amount of make-up on that I would allow myself to leave the house with and my staple "I'm running late!!!" outfit. 
(Unfortunately my punctuality is terrible so this kind of outfit can be on me a fair few times...) 
A pair of black leggings, a t-shirt, my black flat ankle boots and a cute scarf. 
Today I happened to wear one of my favourites, this gorgeous brown scarf with reversible pattern, I wore the tartan side, with lace detailing along the edge. I would usually wear this scarf in Autumn but it went so well with my blue baggy t-shirt that I just had to wear it! 

 
The craft fair was good fun, I meet lovely people,

Guilt Free Chocolate Ice-Cream?!? :O

My sister believes she needs to diet, cue eye roll from me! I think otherwise I mean I think she's perfect the way she is but but what can you do? 
I have wanted to improve my diet for a while now which is extremely hard when your addicted to things that are really bad for you so I said I would join in this venture.
One issue. I love chocolate ice-cream. 

So trying to find an ice-cream alternative that actually tastes good which I like has proven strenuous until
