Homemade Dog Treats

Today I had a very crafty and creative day. My creativity juices were flowing and I went on a craft rampage. I made Christmas (yes, I’m already excited for Christmas) ornaments for the Christmas tree and homemade dog treats for my adorable little man.

These adorable little doggy treats are super easy to make and dogs (well my dog) love them.

All you need is:
1 + 1/2 cup Flour
1/2 cup Water
1 tbs Vegetable Oil
1/4 cup Peanut Butter (Smooth)

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. You may need to add a little extra water if it is too flour-y.

Roll out the mixture and cut into preferred shapes. I cut mine into hearts and let my sisters press paw print patterns into it.

Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes.

That’s it! Let them cool and let your dog do a little taste test.

DIY Halloween Candles

I woke up today feeling very Halloween-y. My family and I are having a Halloween party this year so I have spent the last week buying decorations and planning games and foods. I’ve never really been that bothered by Halloween before but for some reason, this year I’m loving it.

I decided I would share with you all how to make these Halloween ‘blood dripping’ candles.

Halloween Candles

These candles are great looking Halloween decorations and are super easy and fun to make.

All you need is:
1. Candles
2. Red crayons (Or a different colour if you wish)
3. A lighter or matches (Or a hair dryer but I just find that more difficult)

All you need to do is melt the crayons over the top of the candle but being careful not to get it on the wick (which I failed on). Melt the crayons over the top of the candle and let the wax drip down the sides.

I think these candles are actually super cute and I never want to light them.

What’s Eleanor Playing?!

Recently, I’ve been a little (or more than a little) obsessed with playing on the PlayStation. I decided I would share with you what games I’ve been loving.

The first game I’ve been massively obsessed with is Minecraft. I played this game on the laptop and really enjoyed it. However, when I no longer had the laptop I could no longer play it. Then my lovely boyfriend, Matthew got me Minecraft for the PlayStation. I can literally play this game for hours without getting bored. Just incase you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know what Minecraft is; Minecraft is a game where you dig, mine, build, and break different kinds of 3D blocks. You can build a world from all the block and fight monsters. It’s a basic game that I am very much in love with.

The second game I’ve been playing is Assassin’s Creed. This is my boyfriend’s fault. He is very much obsessed with Assasssin’s Creed and most of the words that come out of his month are mostly to do with it. Because of this, he has been trying to get me into the game. I do have to say, he has succeeded. It’s a game based on history which I find really interesting. It’s also not as hard to play as I thought it was when I had watched my boyfriend play it in the past. I’m really enjoying playing the first Assassin’s Creed game and I definitely want the second.

I’m going to have a look at some more games I can waste my life playing. So, if you have any suggestions, let me know!

Half Term Not-To-Do List

It’s finally half term which means a whole week off college. This week is completely needed. College is just so exhausting.

I’m very good at making to-do lists but I never actually follow them through. So, I decided I would try a different approach and make a not-to-do list.

1. Don’t spend a lot of time on the PlayStation or watching tv shows.
I could happily waste my life away playing Assassin’s Creed, Minecraft or watching the same episode of a tv show for the tenth time. This week, I really want to do something productive or even just something different.

2. Don’t sleep in too late.
All my friends plan to spend days off college just sleeping. I’m determined to do something different. I don’t want to waste this time when I could be out doing something great with myself.

3. Don’t stay in the house every day.
I’m a home girl. I love the comfort of my own home more than anywhere else. However, I really want to travel a little to some abandoned places in the uk and take some great photographs for my photography project.

4. Don’t lounge around.
I’m such a lazy bum! I enjoy sitting around and just doing nothing. Although, that’s not going to help me keep fit. I really want to move more and exercise.

Let’s hope I actually stick to this!

Autumn Goals

So I know I’m a couple of days late (college takes over my life so hardly any time to write) but it’s finally Autumn, my favourite time of year. The blankets and movies are out and I’m ready for the cold.

This Autumn I have decided to set myself some goals;

1. My first goal is to take sooooo many photographs. I’m so obsessed with taking pictures at the moment. Autumn is just the perfect photo taking time. All the leaves and trees are changing, making the cutest photographs.

2. I also want to keep up with college work. I’m not the most motivated person in the world, so I find it hard to keep up with work. This Autumn I plan to get completely ahead on work since the weather means a lot more staying inside.

3. My final goal is to read some new books. Nothing sounds more perfect than sitting in front of the fire with a book. I hardly have any time to read at the moment thanks to college so this Autumn, I plan to read a lot.

I’m so happy now that it’s Autumn. Can it stay like this forever please?!
