The best thing about living in Inverness is the abundance of of stunning views and greenspaces that can inspire you. That coupled with the friendly locals makes it a fantastic place to live.Inverness is also the capital city and shopping centre of the Highlands and has a great location astride the River Ness at the northern end of the Great Glen. If you visit you must take a stroll along the picturesque River Ness, visit Ness Islands, and have a meal in one of the city's excellent restaurants.In summer visitors and locals alike head a few miles outside the city intent on monster hunting at nearby Loch Ness. Finally, Inverness is the happiest place in Scotland and the second happiest in the UK, according to a survey earlier this year and as we all know a happy crafter is a productive crafter
We go behind the scenes at Home Made by Carmona to tour Ursula's gorgeous work spaces.

Daniela from CurlyMade recreates the edgy new look of singer Miley Cyrus.
Miley Cyrus changed her style from her sweet disney image and adopted an edgier look. Her street outfits are mostly composed of cropped tops and shorts with some crazy shoes and original accessories in the mix. Makeup wise, red lips and soft eye makeup appear to be one of her favorite looks. If you want to follow her trend, take a look at these Miley Cyrus inspired DIY's.

Khami recreates the makeup of Demi Lovato and gives her a blues-y babe makeover.
What I like about Demi’s style is her fluidity with looks. She can go from flirty and feminine to totally glam rock and she pulls it all off. She is unapologetically herself, both in style and the way she carries herself, and I think that’s what I love the most.
