Lets Be Honest, Its important!

I started writing this as a post on my blog facebook page but it was just getting way too long so I decided to write it as a blog post. With everything going on in Ireland with the Instagram page “BloggersUnveiled” this topic has been on my mind for some time now. It shows how much people take on what influncers/bloggers/youtubers do. Those titles come with responsibilitys and we need to be more honest! Now a days it is hard as you cant always tell what is real or not on social media. Even though we can do whatever we want with our blogs I just find it very important to be honest.

For me it is all more important that what I say or do is to be honest & true about anything. I create my stuff for people to put their faith in my opinions, trust what I say and for them to make up their mind on the purchasing decisions.

We don’t have to love everything we try and that’s what makes us more real and more relatable! I have faced the fact that there is absolutely noting wrong with saying you didn’t like something because in fact people will be more likely to trust you when you are not always saying every product you try is great.

When I started blogging and started getting things sent to me, I wanted to just like everything so I wouldn’t need to tell a PR company  that I didn’t like something so they would keep me on the list but I realised how ridiculious that was because you deserve as my followers to hear what I really think of the items. I cannot be fake and pretend to like a product when I don’t! There has been products I didn’t review because I didn’t like them at all but than again certain things come down to personal preference and you need to remember that. I have not been paid to write or review anything but in the future if I am I will be staying true to it all and being honest about it!

As a blogger you got to think the long run and not short run as it will all be worth it later on.

Bad Hair Day? not any more!

We have all experienced those days when our hair just does not cooperate the way we would like it to be,  don’t deny it! Whether it’s bed hair, second day hair, or a simply just a bad hair day – here are 6 simply easy and quick tips on how to fix it! Dont worry you will not need to do a Britney moment and shave your head!

1. Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo absorbs excess oils and adds a volumizing texture to your hair. If you don’t have dry shampoo handy, try this simple trick: take a small amount, about a teaspoon size of baby powder and gently massage it into your scalp at the roots. This will also absorb excess oils and make your hair appear fresher but this method mainly works on lighter hair as dark hair will have a grey look on your hair.

Tip: use little by little of the dry shampoo, make sure not to use too much, or otherwise it will be noticeable.

2. Braids, braids, braids

I just love braids anyway but not only will they cover up that second day hair, they also look so much better on second or third day hair. For some ideas on what kinds of braids you can try out:

 

 

3. Tease your roots

For flat hair, backcombing the roots will instantly lift the hair and give it a lively, fuller look.

4. Embrace the frizz

Your hair doesn’t need to be perfectly smooth at all times. Why not go with your frizz rather than against it by lightly braiding or putting your hair in a boho hairstyle , and just be confident with it?

5. Wash half your hair

This one may sound a little strange, I know, but for a lot of us the process of washing and drying the hair can take a long time and is just complete effort. When you’re in a rush, take the front part of your hair and wash that section only (maybe even in the sink). If you have a fringe, just go ahead and wash the fringe. This will give an illusion that you have freshly washed hair and take the attention away from what you’re trying to hide!!

6. Rock that cute hat or headband

This one is a major one!! If you have tried all of the above and your hair is still annoying you or your just too lazy to even try attempt to fix it, than throw on a hat to disguise it all! Try rocking a cute hat with a side braid, or tease your hair at the crown and put on a thick headband. Ta-da what bad hair day?

It’s only a bad hair day if we allow it to be one. You are beautiful no matter what, stay confident and smile lots. If you do not attract attention to your not so perfect hair on those bad hair days, I am telling you, nobody will even notice a thing about it!! 🙂

Summer Festival Fashion

It has been festival season a while now but with Longitude being on this weekend I thought I would do a festival style post. Being festival season means bring out the tents and heading to the field for 2/3 days of music, drink and sunshine (maybe not in Ireland though…) This post is going to be filled with festival outfits for inspiration! I love seeing other peoples outfits and going about putting my own style onto it.

Festival Hair Ideas!

My most loved time of the year is Festival Season. With Coachella over but more music festivals to happen during the summer this is the perfect time to try these looks out. What I love about festival looks is you can be unique and go crazy!!

coachella

My favourite looks would have to be ; Space buns, coloured hair, double dutch braids, glitter roots and middle parting braids. With festival looks don’t forget to accessories! This year there is way more accessories that just a flower crown, even though I do love that! Try adding hair charms to your braids, weave some coloured wool through your hair, head scarf or even fresh flowers.

The person I look to for hair inspo is Sophie Hannah Richardson;

Some hair inspiration from Pinterest:

 

For anyone that wants a different colour in your hair but also want it to wash out, well Loreal Colorista Sprays, is what you are looking for! I have black hair and they even show up in it which I was delighted about! Spray in and wash straight out 🙂

Red Leather

You have no idea how long I was looking for a red leather jacket for!

New Look – Red Leather Jacket €49.99

I used to never wear red, hated the colour and now I love it.. I fell in love with the jacket Michael Jackson wore and had to have one. Its a nice twist with a colour and far away from black. As I wear too much black it is nice to have a colour to make it pop.
