Fear of trains

picture from a couple of weeks ago (jacket + top h&m, jeans primark).
I never felt so cold as I did yesterday! I went to an amusement park yesterday evening and I wore skinny jeans,gloves, docs and two sweaters + coat. On my way back home I couldn't get the train because the line was closed, so I went to the bus stop and waited so so long, hoping that a taxi would come but none did and in the mean time I was dying, it reminded of a film I watched before yesterday haha its called 'Frozen' check it out. Anyway after one hour the bus finally came and I started to feel my tiptoes again.

Pull-Through Quad

Sometimes it's nice to have a simple hairstyle to do on those mornings when there is just not enough time. 
Pull all the hair back into a ponytail to start. 
Now grab your Topsy Tail and create a regular Pull-Through. 
 Braid the Pull-Through however you like - we've done a Quad Braid. 
 Now add a hair accessory at the bottom and, quick as that, you're done!

It's so cold and I don't know what to wear, sometimes it's hard to look nice and feel warm at the same time, Does any of you have 'winter outfits' to show me? it would be cool to see some outfits, and plus I wanted to ask your opinion about the blog, is there anything you want to see.. outfits, tips etc? I've been actally really lazy to take pictures lately.

Photoscape tutorial , starry pictures

First select the picture you want to edit

Second go to 'Object' > click on the photo icon, once you do that a column will open as you can see in the picture then you click on 'Photo' at the top.

Once you have clicked on 'photo' a small window will open , then all you have to do is select the picture you want to apply into the photo. In the example above I selected the space one. Then together with the picture will appear this small object , then all you have to do is reduce the opacity of the photo. I always reduce it to '64'.

Then drag the picture down making sure it fills the other photo completely. After that save it. You may want to apply a bit of contrast afterwards I always do it.

It may look a bit like this.

Just Four Fun

Start by sectioning off a group of hair from ear to ear and then divide that into 5 individual sections - having one right in the middle of the head. 
 Now secure each section into a little elastic and create a Pull-Through.
  Create another section running horizontally just parallel to the first.  Now divide that into 4 individual sections.  (Those 4 sections need to be off-centered from the original 5 sections creating a "brick" look.) 
Now divide the Pull-Throughs from the original sections into two halves and combine them into the four sections behind and secure each section with an elastic. 
Pull the front sections right next to the ears back without separating into half. Now make those four sections into Pull-Throughs at well. 
You will be left with 4 ponytails that you will combine into a woven 4-Strand Braid.  This is done by taking the far left strand of the braid and going under and over the adjacent strands until it reaches the other side and then continuing the same pattern with the new left side strand.   
When you get to the bottom you can combine the braid with the rest of the hair and secure it with an elastic.  Add a hair accessory and you're all finished!

I had a really bad day this week, it was the awful strangely called 'Wednesday' so I wrote something on my mobile notes while I was in hell I mean on the bus. reading it now sounds kinda funny.

I hate today.
I have the fact that I lost my oyster card, I hate having to pay for a single journey ticket, I hate standing in this crowded bus, I hate people saying 'excuse me' to come trough when there's no even space to breathe, I hate people voices, I hate slow people, I hate PMS and being angry and emotive at the same time, I hate this weather, I hate my coat, I hate listening to the bus recorded voice saying ' Please move down inside the bus' I hate people staring at me, I hate myself today.

Turkey Time!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  My daughter was building turkeys out of pipe cleaners for our napkin rings for dinner and we decided to try a turkey in her hair.  As I was getting ready to upload the pictures I saw this one over at Babes in Hairland.  It's almost exactly the same turkey was too funny!  I like how hers has braids though.
We started by pulling some hair from the top half of the head back into a small elastic and creating an Odango Bun.  The are simply made by twisting a section of hair tightly and then wrapping it around itself until the bun starts to grow tall. 
Now Pull the rest of the hair up into a ponytail and create a bun using a bun mold.  Braid the excess hair and wrap it around the mold and then secure it with bobby pins. 
I also bobby pinned the Odango Bun to the bun mold so that it looks like a head on top of a body.
Choose as many different colors of pipe cleaners as you like and cut them in half for the feathers.  Also cut some yellow or orange for the legs and beak.
Spread them out above the head and body and just poke the ends of the pipe cleaners into the head and they will hold.  We hope you all have a great Thanksgiving from our family to yours!

Thanksgiving Fun

So this really isn't a Thanksgiving hairstyle but I wanted to at least honor the holiday.  :)  My original idea was to try and create a cornucopia and it just didn't turn out right so we went with this instead.
Begin by parting the hair right down the middle and then creating a parallel part on both sides. 
You should end up with 4 vertical sections. 
Tie each off with an elastic right in the middle and create a Corkscrew out of each.  Secure your Corkscrews at the ends with elastics. 
 Now, in no particular pattern, wrap the Corkscrews in and around each other until it creates a long bun.  Bobby pin the Corkscrews into place and have your ends coming out through the middle. 
Get your ends really wet and curl them out around your fingers to fan them out a bit.  Spray the hair with some hairspray and it will hold all day long. 
Now the only part of this hairstyle that has anything to do with Thanksgiving is the pilgrim clips underneath.  :)

melody fair wont you comb your hair you can be beautiful too

Melody 1971. I discovered this film since I was very young because my older sister Mellody was named after this film. And it is surely one of my favorite, not to mention the amazing soundtrack by Bee Gees <3
