Festive Hairstyles

So I have never attempted to do a hair post before as I'm not great at explain what I do so here goes my first ever try! Here is how I will be doing my hair for this festive period:

1. Twist into a bun 
This is one of my favourite hairstyles which I have and will continue to wear to christmas parties this festive season it is more of a dressy hairstyle but it can be made really casual by pulling bits out and dressing it down.
  • take all your hair and part it in your natural parting, mine is to the left side of my head.
  • Go to one side at a time and just take two small bit of hair and twist them round adding in small strands of hair every time going down until you get to the bottom. 
  • Then get a bobby pin to hold it together an repeat on the other side.
  • Once you have finished both sides take the bobby pins out and get all you hair into a low ponytail at the bottom of your head, twist it to get it into the bun shape and secure with a band.
  • Pin and secure your bun how you like it and if you want to make it more casual you can pull out bits at the side like I did, and its as simple as that!

2. Twist side braid
I think this is a lovely hairstyle but for longer hair, however you could adapt this if you have shorter hair and do it on both sides.
  • Party your hair deep in one side of your head.
  • Just like in the previous hairstyle you are going to pick two pieces of hair from the top of the side with the most hair and twist them picking up more and more hair as you go along.
  • When you get to the bottom of that side of your head pull all the rest of your hair round that side and divide all your hair into three sections.
  • Braid normally but pull your hair tight to keep the twist secure.
  • Tie with a hairband and if you want to make it looks more casually messy you can pull out little bits at the side and loosen the end of the braid a bit.

3. Christmas French Braid
This one is very simply just a single french plait, I think that it is something like all the rest of these hairstyles make a change to the usual plain hair down looks that most people go for and this look has serious detail from behind but doesn't take away from your gorgeous make up.
  • This is better on two day old hair
  • Take a small bit of hair at the very middle front of your hair and divide into three sections
  • Do a normal plait then add in more hair and cross the hair over again.
  • Word down your head until you have included all the hair in the braid.
  • Then just plait like normal until you get to the end and seal with a hair band, hair spray your fly aways if necessary.

Big City Adventure!

Throwing it all the way back to boxing day but rather then spending the week after christmas at home doing nothing, this year myself and my family decided to fly out to Chicago and stay in a hotel for a few days and be proper tourists around the big city. I stayed at the Sheraton Grand hotel which is quite central in the city your not in manic rush of the magnificent mile which is just a mile long road of shops which is spent probably too much money in but you have everything around you like restaurants slightly less busy shops, Starbucks (on every street corner).
I was my first time in Chicago and it did not disappoint. We were only there for seven days so we packed everyday full of fun and sight seeing including Ice skating, John Green aquarium and we went up the 360 Chicago building which is the second highest building in Chicago ad myself and my Dad did the tilt. The tilt for those who don't know, is where you stand up against a panel of glass facing out of the building and t…

November Favorites

This is my November favourites its actually quite a short one this month but I guess I have been using my normal products and stuff but these thing I have been loving on another level!!!

Avon Nail varnish So it's almost Christmas and I think this nail varnish is very festive and sparkly without being too much considering it's not even December yet. It's from Avon and I bought this nail varnish roughly this time last year but I feel like I have rediscovered this product and I am constantly wearing it right now. It is made up of lots of glitter in silver, gold and black, together they make such a nice shimmery colour. They do still sell this at Avon for £3.00 however they changed the names and shades slightly but I love all of them and I think I might have to purchase some more.

T Mug This past month I have been loving this mug, it has a T on it for my name and I've been enjoying tea and hot chocolate out of it. I'm not sure where it came from as it was a present from…

Christmas Throwback

So I have gone through Facebook and all the laptops in the house to look for all our old christmas December photos with a Christmas theme so here are the findings. Looking at these pictures have really made me smile, we did have some more but I just can't find them.

This is super bad quality but I think was two years ago at Broadditch farm when we went to buy a tree, we had a look round the shop and myself and my mum decided that we wanted to take a selfie in these super cool glasses.

This is 2012 when we decorated the living room and bought new decorations, I love this picture it makes me feel so cosy.
I love this collage I made two years ago I think and Cooper my dog was being super cute and he got lots of presents on Christmas day.
This is in 2011 and we had snow in December but not christmas day. This was like the beginning of December and we went to a winter wonderland somewhere and they had like a little zoo bit then we went and bought ice cream. Also I am now realizing how…
