DIY birthday card/present

Hi everyone,
Today's post is a diy birthday card/present that is perfect for anyone.

Chocolate bar card
  1. Begin with picking the persons favourite chocolate bars and plan a paragraph. It doesn't have to make sense, it just has to say a message.
  2. Use an A3 piece of card and draft it using a pencil.
  3. Go over the writing with black felt tip and sellotape on the chocolate bars.
  4. Done! It is a little awkward to wrap or a bit big to put in an envelope so I just put mine in a big carrier bag.
Check back soon for a new post

Hairstyles for school

Hi everyone,
Today's post is hairstyles for school. I don't know if you are like me, but I get really bored of wearing the same hairstyles. So today I have come up with a few easy and quick hairstyles for busy mornings or even going out.

1. Side fishtail braid
The fishtail is a really easy braid that looks really intricate.

For a fishtail you divide your hair in to 2 parts.
Take the small piece furthest away from the centre on one of the sides and put it ointo the other side.
Do this again but taking the piece from the other side and placing it on the opposite side.

If you are confused use the diagram above to help you. Once you get the hang of this it becomes really easy.

2. Waterfall braid
I love waterfall braids and they look super cute with straight, curly or any kind of hair.

For a waterfall braid you start of like a french plait - divide it into 3 small sections at the front.

Then plait it but after the 2nd time add a small bit of hair when plaiting the top section but let the bottom section go back into the hair and pick up a different part.


3. Messy bun
Messy buns are great! They look casual but can easily be dressed up with accessories.

For a messy bun, you need to tie your hair up in a high ponytail - the height you want your bun. Then twist your hair and swirl into a circle.

Secure with a bobble and use grips if needed.

Loosen by pulling forward and turning.

Also pull the part on top of your head forward to loosen.
Accessorise with bows, flowers and bandanas.

Have a great weekend.
