Easter Week: Decorating

Hey guys!

I love Easter, despite the fact that in the southern hemisphere, it is meant to be celebrated in the second half of the year, but I digress. I love that everyone has another excuse to spend time with their family and eat food. Being that my name is Pastelsparkles, I also really love that pastels are a big part of this time of year. I feel quite in my element among the mints, lilacs, and pale pinks. I wanted to share a little bit about how I plan to decorate my life for this holiday, and hopefully it’ll serve as a bit of inspiration if you’re feeling like you need a bit of Easter in your every day.

Things that I’ve Been Doing Behind the Scenes

Hey guys!

Today, I’m going to share a few things that I’ve been up to but haven’t really advertised very much. Despite appearances, I don’t solely create crude photoshop images for my blog. I try to keep myself as busy as possible and I have a lot of creative outlets so I thought it might be time to actually show you what I’ve got going on outside of this blog! I hope that you enjoy!

Valentine’s Day: How to Celebrate it!

Hey guys!

Whether you’ve got a partner or not, celebrating Valentine’s Day can be a really fun time and there is a tonne of stuff that you can do. Whether you’re exchanging gifts with friends or loved ones, going out to dinner or just sending V-Day Card memes on social media, everyone seems to end up celebrating somehow. I really don’t subscribe to the notion that people should be anti-Valentine’s Day. Its a day to celebrate love, in whatever form that comes in. Today I wanted to share how I plan on celebrating it and how you might like to! I hope that you enjoy!

Best AliExpress Buys!

Hey guys!

Today I wanted to share my favourite buys from AliExpress! AliExpress is kinda like a chinese eBay? There’s lots of little shops that sell lots of different items. I won’t be sharing any fake makeup here because I know that’s controversial, but AliExpress has a lot of other great, affordable things that I think you need in your life! Obviously if you want to buy fake makeup, that’s up to you. I don’t want people to feel ashamed for buying it because people have tonnes of reasons for wanting to buy fakes! I hope that you enjoy this post x

Planner Envy + New Instagram Account

Hey guys!

I’ve made a few posts here about my love of planning and ever since I bought my Erin Condren back in April, I’ve been really obsessed with looking at sticker kits and planner inspiration instagram accounts. Since I’ve filled every week with washi (without thinking of the potential stickers I could have added this year), I’m collecting kits for next year’s planner and I thought I’d share some nice weekly spreads that I’ve come across. This weekend there’s going to be quite a big sale on a few of these stores so I thought it was a good idea to let you guys know about it if you’re into this sort of thing!
