Blue pancakes, homemade ice cream & more

Hello everybody! Here is the much-procrastinated summer bucket list update post!

#58. Make coca cola lip balm.

I saw this on YouTube back in February & decided to put it on my summer bucket list (I have no idea why). I made the container, & then attempted to make the lip balm cola flavoured. BIG FAIL.

The lip balm now smells like an artificially flavoured fruit salad. Oh well.

#60. Make a washer necklace.

This is the first item that I attempted this summer, & I think the necklace turned out pretty well. It’s one of my favourite colours too!

#18. Make homemade ice-cream.

I made this with Pancake Monarch the other night.

The instructions said to add in vanilla essence, milk & sugar into a small ziploc bag & then put it into a larger ziploc bag that’s filled with ice & rock salt. I tried trusting my non-existent cooking senses (what was I even thinking?) & didn’t measure the vanilla essence, which resulted in a foul tasting vanilla “ice-cream”.

Ugh, I’m an idiot.

End product.

 

#15. Make purple pancakes.

As you can see, this isn’t even remotely purple.

I didn’t have any red food colouring, so I tried using “Orange Red”, & the batter turned a hideous greenish-purple. I added in lots of blue food colour to turn it back into blue.

The morning ended with attempting to make the pancakes look appetizing by adding on vanilla ice cream & chocolate syrup & Pancake Monarch saying, “What were you even trying to do?

I’ve done a few more things from the list apart from these. A post about those will be up soon! 🙂

Room spray, room decor & nail art.

Hey everybody! This is the last post in the Autumn Bucket List’14 series! Yay! Anyways, let’s get started with this.

(And yes, I do know that I’m extremely late.)

#10. Autumn Manicure + Pedicure.

I did two different manicures. Don’t mind the vampish one, as the picture looks ghostly because I was going through what I call ‘the extreme-Retrica phase’.

Vamp nails.

Inspired by the song “All of the Lights.” And don’t ask me how. Or why.

And in this pic of my so called “pedicure”, which was clicked at camp, my feet look very alien-like & the sleeping bags are photobombing, so, yeah. And ignore the fact that I’m wearing oversized track pants & that this is just a plain red nail polish.

#6. Decorate my room.

I LOVE MY ROOM.

Inspired by @letmeinspireyou on Instagram. I decided to use only triangles in the background, though.

And the best…..my wall! Woohoo! It took some effort, because I made everything myself.

And here we have a closer look-

#17. Make an autumn scented candle room spray.

Yeah, I did tweak this task a little, but it’s just because I feel that a room spray is much more convenient to use.

The spray. And yea, this is one of my attempts at taking artistic photographs.

How Dracula made this concotion

I put vanilla essence, bay leaves, orange essence, strawberry essence, oregano, cinnamon, & a few cloves in a  bowl of water, & then I microwaved it.

Afterwards, I simply poured it into an empty spray bottle.

Tip: Filter the mixture before pouring it into the spray bottle, because if you simply pour it in (like I did), then there’s a high chance of the spray bottle’s pipe-thing getting jammed up.

And that, folks, finally wraps up the autumn stuff! Yay!

Will start posting the winter stuff soon,
