It seems that when I find something new to do with my hair, I keep it that way for a LONG time. For almost an entire semester I kept my short hair curled by using a non-barrel curling iron. Which, by the way, is the only curling iron I’ve used (and trust me I’ve tried plenty!) that keeps my hair curled. I never even needed hair spray! After the curl phase, I straightened my hair. Now, it’s all about the scrunched and wavy look! The beach wave has been and still is a popular hairdo. I’m able to accomplish it with just a few easy steps.
1) After my shower, I french braid my hair while it’s still wet. I don’t blow dry it, I don’t air dry it, I braid it while it’s still dripping water. If any part of the braid is loose, I’ll bobby pin it. Then I go to bed.
2) In the morning, I undo the braid. Because my hair was wet the night before, it’s damp after coming out of the braid. The damp hair is perfect for moussing it.
3) Using the Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Mousse, I spray some in my hand and simply scrunch it into my hair. Don’t be afraid of the mousse! I put as much as I need. I scrunch from the bottom to top, making sure that every part of my head gets an equal amount of mousse.
4) I then flip my head and scrunch, again from the bottom to top.
5) The last step is optional even though the mousse bottle recommends it be done. You can blow dry your hair to keep the waves in tact. I don’t dry my hair, and the waves still stay in tact.
That’s it! In four (or five) easy steps, you can have effortless and playful hair that looks like you just came from the beach! This hair will definitely put you in the mood for summer!
Banana Republic is, hands down, my favorite store! I would love to be a buyer for them, or even just working there! Though it’s a little pricy, it’s affordable once I get a job. Take a look at this outfit that’s ALL Banana Republic. Sadly, it’s also $341.98, but it’s cute!
Very recently, a popular blogger, Scott Schuman, also known as the Satorialist, has been under hot fire with the his readers. His blog post about a fellow blogger, Angelika Ardasheva, has created a major conflict. Schuman chose to say about Ardasheva,
“I loved that she’s a bigger, curvier girl than most of the other bloggers who you see in the press and tend to represent the genre.”
Many of his readers chose to focus on those two words: bigger and curvier. However, the point Schuman was trying to make was,
“The subtle thing she achieves so successfully in these two looks is to complement the sturdy but beautiful shape of her legs with an equally strong shoe. A daintier shoe would be overpowered but these shoes create a beautiful harmony for the lower half of her body.”
Schuman’s intentions weren’t to offend anyone, yet it seems that several people were offended. Why, though? Is there really anything to be offended about? Aren’t we all a little bit “bigger” or “curvier” than the average model? There are a select few who are 6 feet tall and 85 pounds.
Today’s society is abusing the word “curvy.” “Curvy” doesn’t mean you’re overweight or that your BMI is higher than it’s supposed to be. To be “curvy” means you have some sort of shape to the silhouette of your body. You’re not just up and down, stick straight. There’s something that the eye can follow, rather than just drop down to the floor.
People were too hung up on these words and forgot to see what Schuman was admiring. If anything he helped his readers. He advised them that even the right shoe can help the look of your figure. People are too sensitive, and I’m sorry to say, get over it!
With college getting closer and closer every day, there’s a ton of things we need to think about. First of all, where? What do I want to do? How am I gonna pay for it? How am I gonna survive those two to four years financially? Where am I gonna live? All these questions run through a high school seniors mind. There also running through my and Bri’s mind. Both of us are hoping to attend the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, and we want to be roomies!! This is an apartment that we both like in Huntington Beach. We have a spacious family room, a large dining room and kitchen, and roomy bedrooms. We also have a forest in our back patio. By the way, notice that Bri has the bigger closet while I have the laundry room…… 🙂
This weekend I spent some time on Polyvore putting together outfits just for fun. While doing this, I thought to myself, “If this is how I would style a woman, how would a man?”. So, I put that question to the test. I asked a family member to pick out an outfit on Polyvore. He did, and this is what he came up with…………
Better, right? A girl knows what she’s talking about. She knows how to dress her body and hide her flaws, but a guy has no clue about those things. Now, again, not every guy has a terrible fashion sense, I’m just speaking in general. Although, I think I should be honest. That “man’s” opinion was really my three-year old cousin, Brandon. That still counts though, right?
Have you ever flipped through a magazine or looked at a piece of art and thought, “Wow, what great colors!”? Colors are the meaning of spring! Lauren Willhite, author of the blog Collective Colors, shows us how to take the colors out of a picture and put them in an outfit. Well, she helps guide us through putting those colors in an outfit. Willhite’s blog is super creative and fun to look through. She finds pictures, whether they’re art or actual clothes pictures, and pulls out the key colors.
