A Winter Outfit of the Day + New Purple Hair

Winter has officially arrived here in New Zealand! The recent cold snap has had me dusting off my favourite winter coat and boots and while the end of summer can be a bit of a downer for some, I'm excited to play around with some new outfits. Use the new season to try something new with your style and be a little bold. I actually dyed my hair purple a few weeks ago and have been enjoying styling it with my outfits. If you missed the video on our youtube channel, check it out below to see how I dyed my hair.

Pallet Laptop Desk DIY

Today I'm sharing how I made my pallet laptop tray for using my laptop in bed. I got this idea while I was on the hunt for laptop trays and saw one of taramilkteas instagram posts. I made mine without a centre bar and little higher so my legs could fit under but I still love how it turned out!

Materials I used:
  • a length of 180mm x 2m pine cut into 2x: 20cm x 40cm & 4x: 9cm x 47cm
  • 16x galvanised wood screws 10g x 60mm
  • 4x L brackets
  • 8x screws 12mm

Tools used:
  • Makita circular saw
  • Makita cordless drill
  • rachet screw driver
  • 2x saw horses
  • Irwin quick-grip clamps

The materials only cost me 12$NZD if you use some recycled or leftover wood, or about 40$NZD if you buy new wood from the hardware store. You can also get your wood cut at the hardware store if you don't have a saw available.

We hope you enjoy the video, remember to tag us in a photo if you try it out for yourself!
