How to get super soft and clean hair

Even when we wash our hair it still isn't the cleanest it can be. But, after watching a you tube video I discovered the way to get super clean (stripped of all left over product and build up). All you need is 3 things. You will need: Dish Soap , 1 lemon and conditioner.

Begin by Getting your soap and wash your hair starting with your scalp first. make sure to really work it into the scalp and then travel to the ends of the hair. wash out and ensure all hair is clean. Then get the lemon and slice in half. Avoiding the eyes squeeze the lemon onto the scalp and rub in and then repeat with the other half but this time clean the ends of the hair. Leave the lemon in for 5 minutes and wash out. After rinsing, your hair will feel squeaky clean and will also be dry. At this point,apply your conditioner to the hair and leave in for 5 - 10 mins and then wash out. Your hair will be clean and soft. All product build up will be gone.

Back to school hairstyles

@Christina Childress & Lein - this would be cute on you! are you thinking bottom braided too?
This is such a pretty summer hairstyle and i love side braids.
Lovely plaited hairstyle <3
This is such a cute updo. Updo's are perfect for summer
days and even picture day.
Pretty Hairstyle
This is probably my most worn hairstyles for school.
Half up Half down hairstyles look so cute and also elegant.
But they are so easy to do. I like to section my top half of hair ,
tease it and then smooth it back into a small ponytail. Add a bow and done.

I love the way a voluminous and messy ponytail looks and this one
is perfect. I'm quite a tomboy and hate having my hair in my face so
this one is still a bit girly while keeping my hair clean and simple.

10 Beauty Infographics to Pin Now and Use Later
These curls are so pretty and no one wants to wake up early, so doing this the night before and opening in the morning means you get a lie in and no damage to your hair.

Rimmel London baby lips Dupe?

While watching the first episode of Made in Chelsea NY; I saw the advert for the new keep calm lip balm's by Rimmel London. It's odd how much they remind me of Maybeline's baby lips. The have introduced many shades and each one has a funky and cool name to match the shade. Each lip balm is priced at £2.99 which is the same price as the baby lips. I didn't like the baby lips so these look quite promising. I will be purchasing one very soon and i will be doing a review.

Summer Fashion DIY's

Here are some of my favourite summer fashion DIY's and I hope you try some. Have fun.

DIY Summer Fashion Ideas - Embellished Sunglasses
This is probably the most cutest and most easiest. Re- vamp an old
pair of glasses with any thing you like. You can use diamonds to bows
it's up to you and your preferences. I like the ombre look on these glasses. 

16 DIY Fashion Crafts - Fashion Diva Design
These bracelets are so cute. You can make them out of old clothes and scarves.
if you ever have any left over wire hangers make sure to try this.
Headband with spikes Autors: Saulīte12345 Diy,Diy,Diy -
I love spiky studs. This headband is so edgy and funky
and i love it. You could always swap for the pyramid style studs
or coloured ones. but i like the gold and black edgy look.
DIY Heart Patterned Jeans
I love printed jeans. But finding a pair in tall sizes ain't easy.
So this project is easy and chic. Cut the stencil and dab. If
your a bit older you could always use watered down bleach
it will give a faded sort of look but be careful and wear gloves
and eye protection.
Still have your old CDs? Love this!
This is a very in expensive diy and gives you the prettiest looking collar ever. You could use
beads, flat back studs for an edgy look.

This is so cute!
I love scarves and sometimes i go through my scarf collection and some of the
scarves are really thin and flimsy. So getting two scarves and doing this will be the
best scarf ever to be made. There is no sewing so not only is it easy, but you can
take it apart and try another colour combination.

Balmi cube review

I am an avid collector of lip balms and I have over 20 of them.this may seem over the top but I use it on a daily basis. so having a good one is necessary. I usually like to stick to either Vaseline or my lip smackers or even my nivea essential care chapstick. I am not a fan of Baby Lips as they make my lips drier that before I applied the lip balm. So I travelled to boots and discovered something called the "Balmi cube". i decided to get one after being intrigued by the packaging. So after deciding between mint and strawberry i chose strawberry. I got home and ripped the packaging open and discovered one of the best smelling lip balm ever. i also discovered a small section underneath to apply with your finger.NICE.

Yummy smelling balmi cube

so i applied it to my cracked lips and i have to admit the formula tasted great and also felt great. it lasted a long time and kept my lips juicy. So then i took it around in my school bag and realised that the lid snap became loose and the lid would fall off while jumping around in my bag. All though i did not do anything the lid would not close which didn't impress me. Then after about a week i applied it to my lips and gagged with shock. The flavour had turned awful and didn't taste like the amazing strawberry milkshake I had tasted before. i had to wipe it off my lip and reapply another good tasting lip balm ( Lip smackers coco cola flavour). after that i gave it another chance but the same thing happened. And i also the noticed the plastic sealing wrapper peeling off and the dome flattening with every swipe on my lip.

A few of nice balmi flavours

So some people may question whether i looked after it properly but i did . I guess i may have got an odd one. My good friend who is an eos lover also had the same problems to me and reccomended me eos lip balms. Overall the packaging was good and at the start it was nice. but i think if i was to get one i wouldn't take it around, but keep it at home on my vanity table.

 Thank you for reading

Beauty Hacks Every Girl Should Know

These are simple and life saving beauty hacks. I did some thorough research and chose some of my favourite and best working hacks. I hope you enjoy.

  1. If you run out of shaving cream then use hair conditioner. Not only do they make you legs silky smooth but you also won't cut yourself.
  2. Place Vaseline on your pulse points before applying perfume. This makes the scent last longer on your body.
  3. Use apple cider vinegar as a toner to prevent breakouts and acne.
  4. You can also use apple cider vinegar to get rid of hyper-pigmentation.
  5. Use coconut oil to shave with it also gives you silky smooth legs.
  6. Lemons are the best fruit to use for whitening teeth. Mix with bicarbonate of soda or baking soda and apply to your teeth for two minutes and brush off.
  7. Lemon juice can be used to lighten age spots.
  8. Use equal parts lemon juice and water and apply to chosen parts of your hair. Sit in the sun and wash out.BOOM. Instant highlights. 
  9. Using castor oil and vitamin e gel mixed together can grow your lashes. Just apply to your eyelashes and your lash line. Then go to sleep. do this for around a week to see results.
  10. Apply Dry shampoo to your roots before you sleep. when you wake up all of the grease will be gone.
