Scrapbooking is something that I find really therapeutic. It takes my mind off things and I love to just put something on the TV or some music in the background and get stuck in. I've made a start on what I like to call my beauty and fashion scrapbook. At first it just started with themed collages, as you can see from my yellow and pastel pages. After that I thought it would be a good idea to start including some beauty, so I made up an A/W look book including swatches from some perfect products for the season. After that, I knew I wanted to have more beauty pages and in need of inspiration, I headed over to Pinterest. I was really inspired by what I found and managed to make a long list of all different ideas.
If a beauty scrapbook sounds like something you'd be interested in, it's super easy to do. Just treat yourself to a scrapbook, pull out some pictures from magazines, make collages, draw make up looks etc - there's loads to do! I bought my scrapbook from Paperchase but I have also seen some really cute ones in WHSmith and Accessorize. To get even more creative, you could buy a plain brown scrapbook and decorate the cover however you wish, giving it that personal touch. My sister bought me a Smashbook for Christmas which I am super excited to get stuck into, so I'm sure you can expect to see a post on that too. I encourage everyone to keep a scrapbook as it makes me feel so creative and inspired, allowing me to forget any worries that may be on my mind!
Would you start a scrapbook? x
