5 easy hairstyles 

Ok … As most of you know, I am massively into hair and I am always wearing my hair in different styles, but I thought I would share with you the easiest styles I wear all the time.  

  1. Messy Ponytail –  this is probally the most common and popular way to wear your hair but I always put a twist on it.  Firstly I like to make it very messy and I do not do it too high on my head. Secondly I like to add a big messy plait going into the ponytail and and sometimes some smaller plaits to add texture to the hairstyle.   
  2. Half up Half Down  – this is my go to hair style if I am in a rush and you can make this hairstyle look formal or very casual. Also this is a very pretty look too. I like to braid sections at the front and then simply pin half my hair up with a bobbin pins. It looks like you have put in loads of effort but really it is so simple!!!!!                                             
  3. Fish Tail Plait – I know everyone has heard of this style and everyone has been wearing it but again it is such a pretty look and perfect for smart or casual. I quite often wear this for school, and so that it stays in all day I like to do a French plait round the back of my head going into the fishtail.  
  4. French Plait – My mum used to do these for me all the time when I was in primary school and I have completely got into them again!! I like to wear one French plait straight down the middle and back of head (espicially for sport). If I want a more casual or pretty look I like to pull bits of hair out at the fount or have it going round to the side.    
  5. Half up Half Down BUN – I LOVE this look. I think it looks so cool and casual for eveyday. It is PERFECT if you need to throw your hair up in 30 seconds and it doesn’t matter if it looks messy because it is supposed to. If I want this to look more formal, I curl just the ends off hair (which works really nicely because I have long hair)    

Let me know what your favourite hairstyles are at the moment… C ya soon

    9 Different Ways To Wear Dungarees

    Hi Guys,

    I brought my first pair of dungarees from H&M a few weeks ago …. I LOVE them!!! I’m not joking, I have worn them everyday since. They were £30 which I didn’t think was too expensive considering how much use I am getting out of them. They are so easy to wear and you can match up with anything and everything.

    As I am loving them so much and practically living in them 24/7, I thought I would share with you all the different ways of wearing them…

    Plain White Tee

    white top dung 2

    This is the  traditional and most popular way to wear dungarees. I also think this is the easiest way to wear them too because we all own a white top which you can just pop on underneath. This is a very casual look and would be perfect for shopping to the shops in.

    Striped Top

    strip top dung 2

    I have seen more and more people this season wearing striped tops under their dungarees, especially celebrities. I think it looks so cool and casual. The striped top gives more depth to the outfit and I think it looks so relaxed and perfect for summer paired with a pair of Ray bans.

    Baggy

    Some people prefer this more than other and I must say it is not my favourite way to wear them but I think they look great on others. I do love the fact though that the dungarees are rolled up at the bottom. This is super cute! It is a very relaxed look so I would wear this maybe out to town or round to a sleepover.

    Crop Tops

    crop top dung

    We al know about he crop top under the dungarees … I LOVE it! This is my favourite way to wear them because it doesn’t show your belly, just a little bit of skin at the side which I think is so cute.

    Off The Shoulders

    IMG_2852

    This look is so simple but so effective and just by wearing the straps off one shoulder of both, gives you a completely different look. It is defiantly a chilled look, but if you put a patterned top underneath, I defiantly think you could wear this to a party!

    Dress / Trousers

    long dung

    IMG_2849

    These are the two other options to dungaree shorts. I only own a pair of shorts but I will defiantly be buying the dungaree dress soon and if I am brave enough the dungaree trousers. Again you can pair them up with any top and they all give you different looks. you will be sorted for summer!

    Patterned dungarees

    IMG_2850

    IMG_2854

    I think these are so cute and I really want to find a pair but I am yet to find any in my local town. I am heading to London soon (let me know if you want a blog post on that) and I will be keeping an eye out for some. I think with these it is best to pair them with a plain white top because the focus is on the dungarees instead of the top, unlike the denim ones.

    Bold Tops

    PARTY TIME… This is how I would wear my dungarees to a party because I think it looks a bit more formal and so pretty at the same time. I also love the fact that with this look you can pair it with any bold or printed top you already own. You do not need to go and buy a new one (your bank account will love this!!!)

    Blouses 

    IMG_2858

    IMG_2856-0

    This is defiantly the more formal way to wear dungarees and I think I would wear this to a garden party or a more formal occasion. Again with this look you can pair the dungarees with any skirt/blouse you own. I personally think a contrasting patterned blouses would look gorgeous under denim dungarees.

    Let me know what you are thinking of Dungarees this season and what you are paring yours up with.

    New Beauty Products for that Natural Summer Glow

    At the weekend I went into town with my bestie and we hit the high-street stores. I’ve tried them all out and here are my favourites which i have found to give me such a gorgeous summer glow…

    all products

    all produccts 2

    bronze products

    I don’t know where to start but I think I have to mention my favourite one first, which is the Maybelline “Lash Sensational”. I have two favourite mascaras, one which gives a natural look (“Bad Gal” Benefit mascara) and one which gives a fuller more false lash effect (They’re Real mascara also by Benefit). Sorry Benefit, but that has now all changed. My “They’re Real” mascara has gone to the back of the draw and my new favourite is the Maybelline “Lash sensational”. I have heard so many other bloggers talk about this and I knew I had to try it and WOW … they were right! It makes my lashes twice and long and twice as full. Also it gives such a lovely curl. How does it do it? I don’t know.

    These next two products are not new to the shops but I have been meaning to try them out for ages! The are the Collection “gorgeous glow” shimmer cube and the Maybelline “24hour Colour Tattoo” in the shade 35 (“On and On Bronze”) . OMG the shimmer cube is so stunning. Its gives you a gorgeous summer glow all over your face and it looks fantastic with tan  (which am desperatly trying to keep from my recent trip to Cornwall). I have also used the different sections as natural eyes shadows. The top cream shade on the cube, I have found to be an excellent highlighter for below the eyebrow too. If you are looking for a bronzer or some shimmer to wear when you are holiday I would deffinatly recommend this! To go with this, to create a bronzed summer look and I would recommend the “24hour Colour Tattoo” in the colour 35 (“On and On Bronze'”). This is by maybelline and I have found it to be so pigmented and easy to use. I have used it own its own, and also as a base and then built up layers on top of it. I simply use my fingers to apply this and it sooooo beautiful! It is the perfect shade for a natural summer glow.

    (The bottom shade is the “24hour colour tattoo” by Maybelline in the shade 35 (“On and On Bronze’))

    what they look like

    (The top colour the “Revlon Colourburst” in the shade 105)

    Next up is the “Revlon Colourburst” in the shade 105. I am not a massive lipstick lover so I have fallen in love with the “Revlon Colourburst” sticks. My favourite is shade 105 which is this girly shimmery pink. This is now my everyday lipgloss because it is so easy to apply and build up, depending on how strong you want your lips to be that day. It is also very moisturising and doesn’t leave your lips feeling sticky at all!!! I hate lip glosses which feel sticky and gloppy on your lips so this one is perfect!

    Finally, I need to rave out the new Body Shop, “Honey Bronze” in the shade 02. This is brand new to the Body shop and they have 3 colours so far… A bronzer, a highlighter and this one, a blusher. They are especially out for summer because they give you a natural summer glow and look fantastic with tan, once again. I feel like I have said that million times in this post!! Pretty much every product in the post look great with a tan! Perfect for summer! Anyway lets get back to the product … I love this blusher because it is a cream so it is great for my dry skin (doesn’t dry it out at all). Also due to its size, its easy to pop in my bag, although I have found its stays on so well throughout day, so I have not needed to top it up. The other great thing about this products is that it comes in a dome shape so I apply it straight onto my face without using a brush or my fingers. I know I will be going back to body shop purchasing the other two very shorty because think they are fantastic.

    I know I will defiantly be wearing all of these products in my everyday makeup and when I go on holiday in August. let me know whether you liked this post and whether you want to see more post likes this.

    Be Nice First

    Hi guys…I thought I would take a quote today which I live by and I think is a very important lesson which often people do not follow. I do not want to tell you what to do but I thought I would share a few ways in which you can “Be Nice First”.

    be nice

    1. SMILE – I have found that if you smile at someone, whether you know them or not, they will always smile back. Try it! I have found that when I am having a down day and someone smiles at me, it makes me feel as if someone cares or someone is generally trying to make me feel happy, which is such a nice feeling. It doesn’t take much to smile at someone in school or on the street, and you never know it could make someones day!
    2. A Little note just to say whatever you want – I quite often write little thank you notes to people or just a little note once in a while to a friend saying how much they mean to me. You do not need to buy a fancy card which costs £5, all its needs to be is a bit of lined paper and a thoughtful note from you! As I am creative and love drawing, I like to draw a personal picture or doodle on the front, but you don’t have to. It is the thought that counts!
    3. Listening – Remember you do not always have to talk to make someone feel better, sometimes people need someone who will listen to them. I know that in the past, all I have needed is for someone to talk to. Quite often people want to gets things off their chest so be nice first and have an open ear so friends can come and talk to you.

    These three things are so simple and cost nothing at all. I would love it if this week you could try at least one of these things and be nice first. I promise you, it will not only make someone else feel better but also you!

    The Beach is a Happy Place!! 

    Hey there, 

    I know this is my first blog post but I’m no good at introducing myself or goodbyes for that matter so I’m just going to get straight to it … 

      
    I recently visited Cornwall with my mum and brother, and while I was sitting on the beach my mum said something to me which inspired me to write this post! She said …”the beach is such a happy place! All people of all shapes and sizes just having a great time. I have never seen anyone who is not having a good time at the beach!” I agree with this and gave it some thought. 

      
    It’s true – when u go to the beach everyone is having a great time and no one judges u. I sat on the top of this huge cliff (with an amassing view my I add) and I just watched everyone on the beach! It’s sounds a wired thing to do but it made me smile! Wathcing everyone splashing in and out of the waves, sunbathing and eating with their friends and family proved my mums point. Everyone was having such a great time!!! The beach was a happy place!!!

    So this summer … Remember this and think about the beach if u are having a down day or even go to the beach because I am sure it will lift u spirits. What is better than eating fish and chips, sunbathing and having a relaxed, worry-free time with family!! 

    C ya soon
