Dorea Joy recreates the look of Jennifer Lawrence for #MakeoverMonday and gives her a bronze smokey eyed makeover.

Jennifer always looks flawless, but I think her makeup looks are generally quite wearable. It's always a great inspiration when you feel like you can relate to a celebrity's style in that way.

I'm one half of Mrs Moon. My sister Susan and I started out setting up our local yarn store in 2009. We stocked gorgeous fibres, taught classes and designed our own knits. Two years ago we launched our own yarn brand called Plump. It is made from ethically sourced superfine merino and baby alpaca and is scrumptious! We now sell Plump online at www.mrsmoon.co.uk plus lots and lots of knit and crochet designs. Simple Chic Knits is our first book.

Our Sidekicks are getting crafty with First Edition Craft Deco Maché papers and glue from Trimcraft in today's #CraftTest and you can win some to try for yourself!



Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia • Visit Website »

Come behind the scenes at Veggie Num Num for a #KitchenTour and see Trudy's kitchen on the Gold Coast in Australia.

My favourite thing about our kitchen is the big double window over the sink. It looks out into the tree tops and lets in so much natural light and breeze. This view is definitely something I'll be keeping when it comes time to renovate.



Julie creates the perfect vintage picnic for today's #DIYTheParty

I chose a vintage picnic because the weather is warming up soon, and it is the perfect time to diy things to use all summer (and a vintage picnic is the perfect opportunity to do so.) I included a hairstyle and dress idea to get the party clothes started, and a mason jar decoration idea so the picnic food can be served mason-jar styled.



Limassol, Cyprus • Visit Website »

The best thing about living in Limassol is the all-year-round warm weather here, it is fantastic nearly 10 months a year (with only January and December being really kind of rainy and coldish - with the occasional sun at the beach and snow in the hilltop like 30 minute drive kind of month during the winter period!) and the beaches are so close and beautiful! They are also kept lovely and clean with full amenities, and beading on the beach on a warm summer afternoon under a large straw umbrella is just any beader's dream!




We're testing out Adnams Triple Sec for today's #CocktailHour and mixing up a Champagne Martini, Chocolate Orange On The Rocks and a Tunisian Chocolate Orange Cake.
