How To Curl Your Hair With GHD Hair Straighteners

In December I put a video tutorial up on my YouTube on curling your hair with a hair straightener/flat iron. Lots of you have always commented on my hair when it’s curly and have asked how I do it, so I thought I would also create a blog post explaining to you just how to curl your hair with hair straighteners. It’s a lot easier than you might think and it gives a great result! It’s not as soft and springy as curling tongs, however it gives those looser waves that I think suit longer, thicker hair better, which is why I love this method. I don’t tend to mess with my hair too much as I like to keep it classic, but you may remember that I did my own DIY Blonde Ombre Dip Dye myself and I love how that turned out, but I’m not too adventurous when it comes to hair styles. I’ve included the video tutorial at the bottom of this post beneath the photos so you can get a great idea on how to do it. Having curly hair is always something I love as I think it looks more feminine and girly. It’s as simple as straightening your hair, but I have included the steps just below for you: Prepare your hair to be straightened after you wash it, condition it, dry it thoroughly and spritz on your protective spray. Make sure all of the knots are brushed out and your hair is smooth as this creates the nice softer curls (you can see my hair care routine here). Next, depending on how much…

My DIY French Manicure

I posted before about the HoneyBee Gardens Water Colour nail polishes as I was really excited to finally find odourless and toxic free nail polish! They have recently come out with a french manicure kit and my boyfriend bought me it for Christmas. I love the look of french manicured nails, it’s so classic and pretty! Plus it goes with absolutely everything you choose to wear. Painting my nails and decorating them is something I have always loved to do, so I wanted to share my DIY french manicure with you all. The kit does come with the paper strips, but I find those don’t work very well, so I do the white tips myself. I used the rose coating too, I think next time I might try peach! It’s always hard to pick between those two! Do you love french manicured nails too? (Follow me on Twitter, Bloglovin and Facebook)

My DIY Denim Shorts

One of my favourite things to do on my clothes is DIY. I’m often adjusting clothes to make them more suited to me, be it swapping buttons on a cardigan, adding crystals to things, cutting things up or making my own jewellery etc. I love customizing and making. The thing I love to do most though is make denim shorts. I thought I would put a post together on a pair I made most recently from an old pair of Rock & Republic jeans. I’ve included lots of photos and information on the steps in this post. (Follow me on Twitter, Bloglovin and Facebook)

Getting Your Christian Louboutin Shoes To Fit

How To Get Your Christian Louboutin Shoes To Fit I know first hand that getting the right Christian Louboutin shoes is a task in itself and the sizing and fit is an even bigger task. I have learned a few tricks over the months from the lovely ladies of TPF and through trial and error myself. I thought I would make a little blog post to help those of you fit your Louboutin shoes if they are too tight, too small, they slip off your feet etc… The Sock Trick – For Louboutin’s that are too tight So if your Louboutin shoes are too tight and they pinch your feet, there are a couple of things you can try. Most shoes need breaking in but with Louboutin shoes he often makes the toe box very narrow and tight which is a little bit painful sometimes. One method you can try is the sock trick; you can wear your shoes while wearing socks to try and stretch out the leather/suede. Do this while you are at home of course, otherwise you might look a little silly lol. It does work, I promise it does. I have had to do it on a few pairs because I, like most people, have one foot a little bit bigger than the other and I always need a little more room in one shoe, so I put 2 socks on my foot and stuff my foot into the shoe and wear it around for ages until it gives in. There is also leather stretcher spray that you can spray on the inside of the shoes…

DIY Christian Louboutin Legionana Flats

I got these Christian Louboutin Legionana flats on Ebay for a good deal! Don’t worry, I had them authenticated by the lovely ladies at TPF 🙂 They fit perfectly but the patent was a bit scuffed up and had some scratches on them so I decided to glitter them! I know you can already buy a pair that are glittered but they are seasons old and I wouldn’t be able to find any like that anymore, so I thought, why not give these ones a new life? I used Gem Tac glue which dries clear, I spread a thin layer over the shoe with a paint brush and then simply sprinkled the glitter onto the glue. It was a bit messy but I am really pleased with the turn out! So here are my DIY Christian Louboutin Legionana Flats now with glitter! If you right click the images and press view image you can see them in higher resolution. I am also working on a pair of Christian Louboutin Rose Pink Yo Yo 100’s which I am strassing (crystallizing). I am putting Fuchsia and Fuchsia AB crystals on them 🙂 This colour combination doesn’t exist yet so I am having so much fun doing it! I will post photos soon.
