5 Things To Do When You're Bored

Wash Those Brushes
I for one, am so guilty of not doing this enough! I love having fresh, clean brushes - they work so much better and feel so much nicer! So next time I have a spare quarter of an hour I'm going to get down and dirty with my mucky brushes! I normally just use a gentle shampoo on them and then leave them to air dry for the night!

Give Yourself a Facial
Why sit on the sofa procrastinating when you can give yourself a fab little DIY spa treatment! My favourite things to use are the Montagne Jeunesse face mask sachets which average at only about £1 each! There are so many to choose from so there is literally one (or ten) for every skin type! Give yourself a pamper - you deserve it!

Download a New App
Most of the time when I'm bored I am glued to my phone - sad I know. If you are the same (don't lie and say you're not!) why not try downloading a new app to have a play around with and kill some time! Whether it's a game, an editing app or even 'Clue' the period tracker - cure boredom with a bit of modern technology! (I have a major geeky side and love playing Broken Sword.... don't tell anyone!)

Practice a New Hairstyle
Never been able to do a french plait or a fishtail braid? Get youtube up, put a mirror in front of you, watch a tutorial and get practicing! Practice makes perfect you know - you'll be the queen of the up-dos and grips before you know it!

Marathon Watch Netflix
There is no shame in sitting on your butt for hours watching the visual heaven that is Netlfix. 
Super bored and have an afternoon to kill? Start a new series - it will be the best thing you do all week I bet!
My top 10 suggestions : Pretty Little Liars, Ru Paul's Drag Race, Gossip Girl, 90210, Buffy, The Vampire Diaries, American Horror Story, Breaking Bad, Orange Is The New Black & Misfits!
