Tuesday Beauty Tip #2

I have no clue where I got this tip from but I know it works. To get the most out of your backcombing use a spirits of dry shampoo on your hair before you start. You can make your hair SOOO big by doing this. I could have made my hair even bigger however the front sections of my hair weren't long enough to reach over it!

Tuesday Beauty Tip #1

I thought that every Tuesday I might share with you a quick beauty tip and call it 'Tuesday Beauty Tip' inventive right! Haha so here's the first one-

The best treatment for stubborn spots is to apply a mixture of sudocrem and toothpaste.

Sudocrem is awesome for getting rid of spots and toothpaste is also great for getting rid of spots, so you can use them separately or even better mix them together. I thought that any toothpaste would work however my sister has informed me that the toothpaste has to include fluoride as a main ingredient.

Favourite Quotes

Image sourced from google images

'The only difference between a saint and a sinner is that a saint has a past and a sinner a future.'
This is a quote by Oscar Wilde in his play The Importance of Being Earnest. I think it sums up how everyone does wrong at some point in their lives, however if you work hard you can sort it

‘Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.’
If you’ve never watched Ferris Bueller's day off then you need to! I probably should have included it in my Film Recommendations post. And I obviously love this quote from the film.

‘Work hard success will follow’ and ‘Dream until your dreams come true’

Casually bunged two quotes together here but I love them equally. They kind of go hand in hand, work hard at your dreams and one day they will come true.

‘Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them’
No this quote is not originally from She’s The Man (although that is a great film). She’s The Man is a modern film based on Shakespeare’s play Twelfth Night , Or What You Will. This quote shows how big things happen some times and life changes but don’t be afraid of that change.

‘I figure life's a gift and I don't intend on wasting it. You don't know what hand you're gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes to you... To make each day count.’
Oh I love Jack Dawson! Of course this quote is from the Titanic. I think everyone should live by this quote, because none of us know what’s going to happen next so we need ‘To make each day count!’

Wow I hope you feel fully inspired now, thanks for reading! XX

Ciate Very Colourfoil Manicure - Review

I mentioned this nail set before in my ‘What I Got ForChristmas’ post. I’ve finally got a chance to try it out! So here are my first impressions of it.

  • So far I’ve had no chips, and I’ve had it on for about two days now.
  • They look so cool!
  • The colour choice is amazing! It comes with one nail varnish and really pretty coloured foil.
  • It’s fairly quick to dry.
  • It takes quite a while to get the look that you are looking for, some patience is needed.
  • It’s really easy to smudge then after you’ve put the foil on.
  • The foil at the tips of my nails have now rubbed off.
I really love these nails! It was a bit fiddly but worth it However if you want to do your nails quickly then I wouldn't recomend this, but if you have a bit of time to do them then it's deffinately worth a go. One tip I picked up was to let the glue go a bit tacky before putting on the foil and then you may have to go and put on some more foil afterwards to add to the effect.  Bye! Bye! xx

A Letter to the Past

Picture from google images

Dear 12 year old Hannah,
Put that pot of Maybelline dream matte mousse foundation down, I really don’t understand why you bought it. All it does is give you orange patches and dries your skin out! Also don’t go for that 2 for 1 one deal on the dream matte mousse, it’s not a good deal, I still have both those pots now (almost 4 years later, yeah I think I should throw those away.) Don’t think that that blusher is any better either. The aim is not to look like someone has slapped you in the face! Start practicing the piano more; you’ll grow to absolutely love it soon and you'll wish you put more effort in. Please stop being so shy, stuff what anyone else thinks. Believe it or not people actually like your real personality, even if you are a bit bazar. And you’ll be amazed at how much your friendship group changes. Your boobs will grow soon, don’t panic. Stop wishing your life away. Also remember to clean the bath after you’ve shaved your legs, the first time you shave it does look like you’ve shaved a gorilla! And finally enjoy yourself. You’ve got a few year before things get serious so have fun now.
Lots of Love,
16 year old Hannah

No-heat Waves

For some reason recently I've been having no spare time in the morning to straighten my hair. So this trick is awesome because in the morning all you have to do is untie your hair and if it turns out well then that’s it or if it looks weird you can just tie it up!  So here’s how I did it;
First I towel dried my hair.
Then I put some of the moose and the serum through my hair and sprayed it with a bit of hair spray (I probably didn’t need all of the products but it makes me feel processional when I use them.)
Next I split my hair down the back into two equal sections. Then on the first side I started twisting the hair from the top gathering pieces as I went down.
When I reached the top of my neck I tied it with a hair bobble while I did the same twisting to the other side. Then I took out the hair bobble and gathered both sides together.
The next bit was slightly tricky; I split all the hair into three sections and plated it down the back.
Then I slept with it all in!
In the morning I simply took the braid out! and that was it!
One thing I would say is DON’T BRUSH IT!!! This makes it go frizzy. If need to you could add a bit more product to help it stay in, but I just left it.
This look is so easy and it’s definitely worth giving a try. Bye! Bye! Xx
