Very quick and easy beach waves for short hair!




 Hello everyone welcome back to my blog. So, I guess you kind of know now I have short hair after posting it endlessly on social media and on my blog. I am always playing around with my new hair to see how I can make it look fun and pretty. I love these beachy wayves I created and they are so easy and quick, perfect in the morining am I right? So, I am going to talk you through step-by-step on how to get these waves...


 BRUSH YOUR HAIR! Get rid of all those tangles and knots and make sure your hair is soft to start with.

Here goes, time to power up the hair straightners. Now this may need some preactice but once you've mastered it believe me it's so easy. All you need to do is twist the straightener at the top away from your face, just like the image and then drag it all the way down your hair, ta dah you have a curl. The longer you keep it twisted the tighter the curl.

To make my curls messy I apply dry shampoo. I tip my head upside down and apply it. Then just give your hair a good shake and you're good to go. Easy, right?



What do you think to these waves? let me know in the comments and I will also be making more posts on short hair looks, as it can sometimes be a struggle to style.


Thank you for reading,
Until next time,

#PictureOfTheWeek - short hair, don't care!







Hello, everyone! welcome back to my blog. So, I have new hair I finally decided to take the plunge and chop off my hair. I really love how it's made my hair look much healthier and thicker. My hair really did need a big cut as it was, lets face it kinda dead. I also have a subtle hue of pink added in my hair which I just love, I used the Bleach london Rosé dye. When I asked for this cut I made it clear that I wanted the sides a little longer than the back, to avoid the dreaded mushroom bob!


So, a quick short and sweet update. Let me know what you think to my hair in the comments.

Until next time,
Lauren

Small things with big meanings

Small things with big meanings


Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. Today I wanted to share my article that was published in the Sheffield Star, my local newspaper. I was very happy to see this in the newspaper as I spent a lot of time and effort into it. The article is all about how we should cherish the small things in life, especially the things with sentimental value. I interviewed two people to see what their special item is and I even included my own!


Throughout our lives, we all gain something that may not be valuable money wise, but the memories and sentimental value make them priceless. These days people think too much about the price rather than the memories and closeness of having something that means more than money. A precious item can just be about the memories and that your dearly cherish something so much you couldn't live without it. We all have something close to us with a little story and I have combined a few starting with my own precious item.



My precious item is a cuddly dog I was given when I was first born. This dog was given to me by my Granddad and it's something I was never without. Pictured above is an image of me as a baby with my beloved toy dog. Wherever I went the cuddly dog went, it comforted me when I was a baby. The reason why it is so sentimental and precious to me is that I have kept it through all the years and it has so many memories and seen me through my childhood.


(Natalie's special item)

Natalie aged 18, received a heart with her name and Nan on the back of the heart. Natalie told me she received this at her Nan's funeral and it's very sentimental to her. Natalie's Nan liked white roses, so at the funeral, they placed white roses on her coffin. They all took a heart, to resemble guests giving her the roses and her nan giving them the hearts in return.
Natalie said: "This will always be very precious to me as it's the last thing my nan gave to me."

Shannon aged 17, received a necklace and a bracelet when she was a newborn. These items are very sentimental to Shannon because her Grandma bought her them and she was very close to her. Shannon remembers the memories of her grandma with the bracelet and necklace. They became extremely sentimental to her when her Grandma sadly passed away.
Shannon said: "The necklace and bracelet bring back all the lovely memories I shared with my nan and for that, they will always be close to my heart."
The moral of the article is to treasure the items that aren't necessarily worth a fortune but the ones that hold memories and love. Those are the ones that are worth a fortune to you in your heart.
