Quick Tips with tadaweese
Fruity & Sour Skittles vodka. The quick & cheap way

Busy making skittles vodka atm. This works for a day in advance but you can always leave it for 2-3 days and just don’t bother with any step after step 3 (:

What you will need:

(for quick easy way)1 70cl bottle of vodka (any kind though apparently the cheap stuff really doesn’t taste as nice) i used Vodka triple distilled from Asda £9,82

4 boxes of skittles, that’s 90 grams of both fruity & Sour Asda £1

coffee filter paper OR kitchen paper with a kitchen sieve

and a funnel or jug, anything that makes it easier to pour back into the bottles.

For containers im just using the original vodka bottle for the fruity skittles and a plain old plastic bottle for the sour ones. Some people use plastic bottles to dissolve the skittles in and then use decorative bottles for each different flavor but as this is the quick and cheap way all the colors will be mixed together, though you can easily separate them your self :)

1) Open the fruity skittles and remove all the green ones, it makes the vodka taste vile!


2) Open the sour skittles and remove all the green and orange ones, again they both make it taste a bit strange (in a bad way)

2.1) half the vodka into the plastic bottle


3) Add the fruity skittles to the glass bottle and the sour ones into the plastic one (will be a reason why later)


4)keep shaking every now and then, about a hour later the fruity skittles had already lost about 1/4 of their size and the sour ones even more so.

5) boil the kettle and pour the hot water into a cup big enough to fit the glass vodka bottle, wait a few moments and put the bottle in, this helps the skittles dissolve quicker. As the sour ones dissolve quicker you don’t need to do this step for them (hence the plastic bottle because it could melt being put in the boiling water) When the water has cooled down so it is cool enough to touch, THEN you can put the plastic bottle in, just to help them along a little.

6) leave over night (or longer if you have the time)

7) 2 hours before you will be needing the shots grab the jug, kitchen roll and sieve. sit the sieve over the jug and line with kitchen roll, as you would have noticed the skittles have left a layer of icky crap on top of the vodka, this is to strain that of(trust me it doesn’t taste very nice)

8) pour the vodka/skittles mix slowly into the jug through the sieve. repeat until all the white bits have gone. do this for both bottles.

9) Rinse both of the bottles out (or the containers if your using posh ones, or separate colors) to get rid of the white crap.

OPTION! if the vodka isn’t to taste you could always add a little fruity flavorings into the bottle (£2 for Asda) add to taste. Also 1 tea spoon of sugar also works to sweeten the vodka, shake well!

10) Pour the pure skittles/vodka mix into your containers and freeze for at least 2 hours, keep in the freezer until ready to serve over ice or with your favorite mixer :)

Get rid of redness on your face

Loads of people have problems with skin redness on their faces, my slef included.

I get so down about my spots and skin at time but i found a quick tip to reduce redness!

GREEN

yes green, not drugs but green make up, green concealers are great for covering redness they work instantly, depending on brand they work to varing degrees.

Another way to reduce redness is Tea Tree Oil. (its also green) You can buy this on its own of some spot creams already have this in, i prefer it on its own as its more concentrated. i buy the Tea Tree Oil spot stick and apply it directly to irritating red spots or areas and with in minutes my skin looks better smoother and less imflamed.

Most drug stores and beauty shops will carry some form of tea tree oil and green consealers :) good luck!

Make your own nail varnish! 3 easy ways!

Ever looked at your nail varnish and thought ‘Im bored, im sick of all these colours’ ?

I do it all the time. So i decided why not try and make my own.

Here are some of the results

What do i need:

  • Clear nail varnish (can be picked up from almost any drug store or supermarket doesnt matter on quality or brand, you can even use that old one thats starting to go crappy) not that expensive eiter the ones i used were from Pound land!
  • Any kind of eye shadow or make up pigment even blusher or bronzer. any coloured powder will do. I bought a cheap £9 120 pallet from ebay, great pigments and you only need 1/4 of a teaspoon of colour for a whole bottle of nail varnish! or again use some old eyeshadows you have lying around
  • Q tips (with the cotton taken off) or any form of small mixing stick.
  • Small mixing tray (i used a eye shadow lid) (Route 2)
  • Old make up brush (Route 2)
  • Food colouring (Route 3)

Route 1: (Multiple applications)

Find a eye shadow that you would just love to have the colour on your nails, maybe a sparkly green or a deep glittery blue or even a on trend nude colour. Use your cottonless cotton bud to gently scrape at the eyeshadow in question so that really fine particles fall into your clear eye shadow (idealy you need to create a little extra space in the bottle so either paint your nails or pour a bit into a empty bottle for keeping) then once half of your small eye shadow is in the bottle put the lid back on and shake shake shake shake!

tips: make sure eye shadow is scraped into a very fine powder and no big clumps as this will cause the nail polish to go lumpy & if you’re unsure about eye shadow amounts only add small amounts at a time untill desired colour is acheived. Bottles do need to be shaken well before use as some of the heavier eye shadow particles (glirrers and sparkles) will sink to the bottom.

Route 2: (1 time application)

If you only want a 1 time application and not a full bottle. Simple repeat above steps but pour amount of nail varnish necessary to cover nails onto a small tray (or eye shadow lid) and scrape eye shadow power into it and mix well and apply.

Tips: use clear nail varnish brush(or a flat old make up brush) to apply to nails then wash in small amount of nail varnish remover to remove colour so it wont affect your clear nail varnish bottle.

Eye shadow and powder nail polishes last very long on your nails. 4 days and counting for mine so far :D only slight chips on thumbs but thats because i text alot :D

Route 3: (either)

Follow above steps for either 1 time application or multiple applications. Instead of using eye shadows or powder simply mix food colouring together in a small paint pot and then mix into clean nail polish. apply to nails.

tips: test colour out on paper before mixing with polish. requires multiple coats.

There we have it :) again video can be requested if you cant follow these instructions.

Neat little pub trick

Bored of sitting in a bar waiting for your drinks or mates to arrive. Well dont just sit and chuck your empty packets away, use this neat little tirick to impress your mates… (I’ll be happy to make a video if you cant follow these instructions)

What:

Folded triangle things

With:

as you can see above this can be used with any crisp packet, sweet packets, nut packets any form of paper/wrapping/tissues that are generally either rectangle or square in shape. Can even be used on those little ripped bits you have from sweet wrappers (see far right triangle)

How: (note, not all wrappers work, its trial and error, EG those long ice pop wrappers are no good, there too long compared to how thin they are)

1. if your starting with a square wrapper (milky bottons for example) or a rectangle one (crisps,skittles, nuts for example) fold in half length wise untill this > [¦] becomes this > should resemble the shape of a small ice pop wrapper.

2. Fold in half again but as to make it a \_/ shape, so that one side should cut across the width of the wrapper.

3. Fold which ever end is on top around the back of the end underneith, so that it wrapps around the width not just across it so you should end up with a sideways L shape.

4. Fold the longer end behind the short end so going across the back of the width. Should look like a small upside down V with a triangle at the top that you can get your finger under.

5. then flip it 180 clockwise. fold which ever end is underneith back over the top of the other end and tuck under the little triaqngle, repeat for the other end.

6.You should now have a diamond shape. simple fold the top the the diamond forwards and tuck into the little triangle flap at the bottom. Straighten out and you’re done :)

Q Tips/Cotton Buds which ever you prefer to call them!
These little sticks with cotton stuck on the end are amazing.  They can be used to tidying up smudged eye pencil’s, marscara’s,  removing nail varnish from the side of your fingers (always a chore)  tidying up smudged eye shadows and lip sticks and even removing sand and  dirt from your ear (Outside only, but we all know we stick them right  in there all the time) I even used them to help me smudge my pastle art  work! These little sticks come in handy everyday for me I could’nt leave  the house with out them in my bag and at £0.89 -£1.50 for 300! a  essential beauty must have with out the horrible price!
Which brand?
Personally  for the make up related ones, go for the slim ones just the shops own  brand ones are perfect. Johnson and Johnson baby cotton buds are too  fluffy to pick up most make up and become all poofy if left in a make up  bag for too long but are great for leaving at home for your ears and  not forgetting for cleaning little baby fingers.
Where can I get them?
Most if not every super market, beauty stores, drug stores, corner shops and baby shops.
