Trend: Nude Color

Oh my! So many time has passed since the last trend post. I almost forgot about it. And there are new fashion trends where ever I turn around! I'm very sure that the most of you already heard about the nude color. It goes with everything, but really everything. What I like the most, are the nude tops, blouses ( nude blouses are the must have this season! Be sure to get one! ) or dresses. The most beautiful combinations with nude palette are black, pink, blue... Be sure to have matching shoes. You always need to have something matching with nude. Also the haute couture runway can't got without this color ( the most common pieces are those with nude colored feathers and sparkles ). At the end there is not much to say, the color is just perfect & very simple to combine. Tell me about your nude palette pieces from your closet here! ( <-- click! ). See you next time!

How To: The Waterfall Braid

I know I've already posted a very similar hair tutorial to this a while back ago. The name is same, but as you can see the technique is different.  It looks hard at first, but when you get in the rhythm it will be like riding a bike. This hairstyle is very girly, so it's perfect for school, holidays and events. If you want to see the video, view my old also waterfall hairstyle tutorial here! ( <-- click! ). For more hairstyle you can also visit my friend's fashion & hair blog - Girl's Stuff! Bye!

How To: Blow Dry Basics

Hi! Here is you daily dose of pretty! You can learn more about basic hairstyles from my previous posts: How To: Long Basic Curls & How To: The Basic Hairstyle. To me, the basic tutorials are the best tutorials for beginners and those who want to improve themselves. This post shows you the best way to get  a clean end to your hairstyle and make as much possible "natural" hair volume.

First, on wet hair, spray leave-in conditioner or detangler so that you’re not ripping at your hair as you brush it outNot on wet hair! Second, blow your bangs section out first. The sooner you blow this out, the more control you’ll have over parting. After partially drying, apply a frizz tamer, argan oil or protective serum. Just a little from the middle of your hair to the ends. At the fifth picture you can see that the girl is pulling the sections around as she drys. Stretching them will smooth them and make sure that the hair is laying evenly on the brush. Continue like that until you reach the top! After the hair has cooled, take the nozzle off, flip your head over and "stir it up". It's very useful, try it, you can't make a mistake!

How To: Tie A Hair Scarf

First, I always had problems with hair scarfs. They just don't like me. Unfortunately, I like them. Especially at summer, ( and it's coming very fast! ). I'm addicted to the beautiful vintage look they reflect. So, I immediately went to Pinterest ( they just have it all ), and found this amazing tutorial that shows how to tie a hair scarf. Surprisingly, it's very easy. I'm not good at tying things, so that is a biiiggg plus.

If you don't have a hair scarf, and you desperate want to try this, I've found a great site HERE. It has a big selection of not only hair scarves, but hair clips, bandanas, headbands, hair accessories.... and much more! Tell me what you think here ( <--- click! )!

How To: The Basic Hairstyle

 Hey! Here is another basic hair tutorial that I've promised that I will post. You can see the previous one here ( <--- click! ), it's pretty useful just like this one. At the first section you can see that the girl on the picture explains how to use an curling iron ( or the hair wand ). So, warp your lock along the whole iron, and don't coil it too tight! Hair irons damage the hair more than any other hair products. Normally, flat iron your ends at medium heat to get a smooth look. And done!

How To: Dying Your Hair Red

Can I tell you a secret? I don't have read hair. But I am in love with it, and I love red as a color also. When I was a little girl, my favorite Disney Princess was Ariel - the little mermaid. I wanted her beautiful fire read hair more than anything in the world ( I know, it sounds a little lame ). Because I was very interested in it, I did a little research on Google, and found some good advices.

1. Clairol Professional Dye 
 I recommend for you to use Clairol Torrids “Audacious Red” for a vibrant, red-orangey shade or Reddest Fire Red for a darker ( but still red-orange ) color. Don't buy the dyes online. If you visit a beauty store in person ( go-to shop is Sally’s ), you can pick out the shade you want based on swatches. In the end, the best shade for you depends on your natural hair color and what sort of shade you’re trying to achieve. Professional dyes are fairly easy to use and will ALWAYS produce a much more consistent color than box dyes.
If you use professional dye, you also need to buy developer with which to mix it. The volume of the developer that you’ll require also depends on your starting color and your desired color. Usually at a beauty store, the sales assistants can recommend which one you should use. Regardless of what volume you choose though, you should always go with the “Creme” developer, which is loaded with conditioner to protect your hair from damage.
Although there is no perfect anti-shade shampoo, I quite like John Frieda’s radiant red. 

“People who don't have red hair don’t know what trouble is.” – Anne of Green Gables
           One day I'm going to try it. 

How To: Half-Up, Half-Down Hairstyle

Hey! I've been looking for this hair tutorial for a long time. and I finally found it! It's pretty simple, and the main reason why I was searching for it, it's because this hairstyle became a big hit this season! Madonna wore a similar hairstyle to this in her music video for "Girls Gone Wild". I always like to choose the least demanding hair tutorials, so for this one, you're going to need is a small comb and a bobby-pin. A big plus would be if you all ready have naturally straight hair. Again, pretty simple, but stylish!

DIY: Song Lyric Wall Art

Since I've entered into the blogging world, I was very interested into D.I.Y. projects and crafts. They really bring out the handy girl inside of me. And the blogging world helped me with lots of fun, original ideas! The best and largest selection of them I've found on Pinterest . The best from blogs all over the world. That is how I bumped on this creative, original tutorial from - A Beautiful Mess Blog ( I think that I'm falling in love with it! It's so beautiful, and you can really find anything! ) Thank you for sharing this with us A Beautiful Mess Blog! xxx

The Tutorial:
Here's how I did it... Step 1. Find a paint by number or vintage painting that you like, but not one you adore (since you'll be painting over most of the design). A damaged piece works great, or a print you aren't too crazy about or ever a duplicate piece, like mine. Steps 2-3. Supplies needed: Artwork, Letter stickers (see 3 for the exact stickers I used. I purchased them at the art section of Michaels. You can also get them at hardware stores everywhere) White paint (in hindsight I would use spray paint, just a hint!), a paint brush and scissors. Step 4. Cut out and plot out your design. I know it's an extra step to cut out each letter, but it's much easier to create nice spacing this way! Step 5. Stick stickers. Place them as perfectly or imperfectly as you fancy! Steps 6-8. Cover the entire art piece with a coat (or two) of white paint. I wish I would have used spray paint because my letters bled a tiny bit. Spray paint is preferable. Step 9. Allow your paint to dry. I layed my piece on the front porch for an hour. Next, peel the letters off carefully. Step 10. Yay!
You did it. Enjoy your new piece of art! 

[the end!]

How To: Style Your Long Hair Short

This is a very useful tutorial, because us long haired girls, can love their long locks more than everything in this wold. Now normally, I've always wondered how would I look with short hair, but I am too scared to cut it. It looks perfect! Those beautiful curls fell down perfectly! And the big plus is that is not hard at all. Just divide the hair and put it on the top ( pin it ). After that let it fall down on the hidden bun from your back head hair and curl it with a heat hair curler! I'm going to try it one day and leave a post about it! I'm so excited. See you soon!

From My Closet: The Back Zip Tee

Hey guys! You may remember that on one post, I wrote: "An awesome fashion post upcoming...", so.. HERE IT IS! I need to apologize in advance for the bad pictures. The light was very low. But the tee is very beautiful and awesome! I was gifted this for my birthday a while back from one of my friends. And for the record, It can't really unzip. I just fell in love with the color and the combination of baby & neon pink. And the texture is great and soft, which I like the most about it. That is how it became my absolute go-to tee.

I'm wearing:

Now, I'm not a big fan of neon colors, but honestly, I was surprised how much they can look good. And if I forgot to say, NEON is a big hit this season ( well, more precisely - dresses ). And the color is very flattering, because you can wear it with everything. But I think the grey & pink combination is the winner! Now, normally I get so addicted on the new things in my closet, that the last time I went shopping, I've bought a beautiful baby pink spring sweater! To cut the story short, I would whole-heartedly recommend this beautiful tee and color! Absolutely love it!

HA! Problem solved!

HA! I did it! But now my navigation design sucks. How wonderful.  ONE problem solved.

Big Problem!

Hey guys! As you can see my blog has gone white. How stupid. And that is all my fault, because I was so desperate to get the blog navigation ( as you can see, it's there ) that my lack of knowledge led me to destroying my blog. How typical for me. But until then, I'm afraid that everyone is going to get blind from this much of witness. I'm so sorry!
