10 EASY Hairstyles For Curly Hair

Hi everyone! 

As a naturally thick haired curly girl, I have struggled over the years with controlling the frizz, maintaining glossy curls, and finding hairstyles that suit which is something all curly girls go through as they grow up and learn how to to control their mane. I think I've kind of nailed it now in terms of knowing my hair so of course there's nothing I like more than passing on my curl tips so that we can all live peacefully in our curly world. So check out the 5 minute vid after the break!

How To Get The Loreal Ombre Look Temporarily | Hair Chalk

Hello everyone!

So I'm sure all of you will be aware of the 'Loreal Ombre' look that I mentioned in the title-it's that look so many people are wearing at the moment where their hair starts dark and then gradually blends into blonde at the tips. Now this look isn't owned by Loreal, but when this look clearly took off from about 2 years ago onwards with every celebrity rocking it, Loreal finally released a DIY kit allowing you to achieve the look yourself at home for about 6 pounds rather than having to go to a salon and paying a lot more money to get it done.

The kit includes bleach for the tips which seems to be the only way to make your hair blonde. I've never thought about trying this look myself, but when I heard about the DIY kit, I started wondering if there was another way of colouring your tips a different colour without doing something as drastic as bleaching, which can really damage and dry out your hair. I was interested in finding a way of doing it for perhaps only one evening and then being able to wash it out. And then I discovered hair chalk. After the break, check out my hair chalk do's and don'ts and the accompanying video tutorial...

New Year in Paris 2014 (Part 1)

Hello and Happy New Year 2014!!!

So as stated in the title, I spent New Years in Paris this year-my first time abroad celebrating new year so hopefully this year will be full of many firsts! Although I've been to Paris before and have seen the sights, I didn't get a chance to go to the top of the Eiffel tower. This time that was top of my list and I also wanted to take in the sights and sounds a bit more. Anyone who has already been sightseeing in Paris to the various landmarks will know how ridiculous the queues are though-it's actually enough to put you off. Especially when you're dealing with drizzly cold weather as I was-it doesn't put you in the best mood. So I did a bit of investigating and cracked a few ways to beat the queues. In part 1 I will tell you about my pursuit for the perfect venue to spend my New Years Eve, and in part 2 which will the next blog post, I'm going to share the information they don't tell you at the Louvre, or the Eiffel Tower or Notre Dame, about how to get inside QUICKLY. Also, being a veggie, I was determined to have a better time of it this time than I had last time in Paris, when I had to mainly rely on Italian and fast food chains. All that and more...
