8 Ways To Avoid Frizzy Hair

Now I don’t know about you guys, but where I am, summer heat is causing the humidity to wreak some real havoc to my hair. If I let it, I would look like Fraggle all day. So, if any of you were wondering how to deal with frizzy hair, you’ve come to the right place!

1. Apply coconut or olive oil to your hair before washing it

Using oil on your hair the night before you wash it off can help seriously moisturize and repair your hair, causing less of a mess.

2. Avoid straightening too much

Hair specialists say that over-processing your hair can cause it to become brittle and damamged, leading to more frizziness.

3. Use a bit of smoothing serum to damp hair

Using a small amount of hair serum can lock in moisture and avoid dryness and frizzy hair.

4. Use your fingers

After showering, use your fingers to comb through wet hair, or maybe wide-toothed comb.

5. Be natural

Let your hair dry naturally. Avoid blow-drying it.

6. Use a conditioner with protein

Damage in hair shaft and static electricity cause puffiness and frizziness of hair. Protein-infused conditioners help combat this.

Winter Fashion 2013

Hello everyone! It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged about fashion, so here it is again! I’ve grown a bit this year and so many of my old sweatshirts seem misfits now. This weekend, I went out and brought back almost a whole new winter wardrobe for myself and I’m going to try and help some of you out (in case you feel lost) about what exactly are winter must-have classics or the things that’re in this season.

ASOS

High Waist Ultra Skinny Jeans
£28.00

ASOS Petite

Supersoft Ultra Skinny Jeans
£21.00

The first thing you need to do is to make sure you have a pair of skinny jeans in a colour (like black or blue) that goes with anything. Its the easiest thing to slip on – you can tuck it into your boots or wear them with a jacket – whether you’re going for a night out or to run some errands.

Ganni

Cashmere Mix Grace Sweater
£95.00

Another thing that is an important part of your winter wardrobe is a cashmere sweater. Of course they come in many cuts and colours but try to get yourself a mature but light and bright colour (winter’s already dull enough without your dark sweater adding to the dreariness).They go with leather pants, skirts, shorts – the whole hog.

ASOS

Popper Skater Coat
£70.00

A bright coloured coat is also an essential. Whether its a skater coat or a duffle coat – one good bright coat will keep you warm and looking good all winter long.

ASOS Petite

Feather Strappy Back Dress
£130.00

This one isn’t exactly what you’d call warm but just wanted to add that feathers are back in. Feathered skirts go amazing with jumpers and feather dresses are perfect for a night out. Plus, they’re just so feminine and pretty, how can you not?

dogs

Another winter essential is a pair of knee-high boots in a neutral colour. They’re warm, chic and cute and good with dresses, skirts and jeans. I bought a pair online last week and they’re gorgeous.

Mademoiselle Tara

Structured Sweater Dress with Crepe Collar
£175.00

Varsity Sweater Dress £98.00

Varsity Sweater Dress
£98.00

Days on which pants just feel too boring or heavy, put on a sweater dress! They’re pretty, loose and comfortable. Plus, they look stunning with knee-high boots.

That’s all for now guys! Hope this helped you. I am by no means a fashion designer or an expert at anything ‘fashion’. This is just some of the stuff I like this winter, and hope you love them as much as I do!

Stay beautiful!

How To : Look Cute on a Budget

Being a teenager is tough, especially since you’ve got so many rules and restrictions to follow and pressure from every possible angle – whether its school or social pressure. And to top of all that, you’re all insecure of how you look and how you’re changing. And to try to look cute on a budget? Well, that just takes the cake. But of all the 4 years I’ve been a teenager, I’ve basically mastered the art of low-budget great looks and now you get to benefit from ALL my terrible mistakes (you’re welcome).

The first thing to do is to not completely ignore but to not let the newest trends affect your every outfit choice. Really, though. The amount of time and money I’ve wasted pining after those ‘in’ boots and that ‘must-have’ handbag, I can’t even imagine. You’ve got to let all that go, and insist on following and defining your own individual style. Being so totally you, is MUCH hotter than looking like Jennifer Lawrence on the cover of that magazine. Take it from me. Instead of wasting your pocket money on that new trend that you cant wear 2 months later because its already out of fashion, using it to buy stuff that’s always everygreen (like at least 2 pairs of nice-fitting jeans, a denim jacket, a good pair of boots, a button-down oxford, a black dress for special occassions) is always budget-friendly and seriously, anyone can look good in those timeless classics.

Another thing is to buy a blazer. I cannot stress enough the importance of a simple black blazer or jacket and how its spiced up many of my everyday outfits (and protects you from the cold) from skirts to dresses to tees. Make sure you’re comfortable, more than whether the outfit is ‘in’. 10 times out of 10 (seriously) that super fashionable outfit which is extremely uncomfortable doesn’t even look that great on you and its causing you an itch in places you can’t even reach. Just, don’t. Its better to be comfortable, seriously.

Another thing is to put off putting makeup as long as you possibly can, and even when you do start, do NOT pile it on and cake your face with it. Most importantly, wash your face squeaky clean of ALL makeup before bed and use a facewash that works for you. Trust me, you do NOT want to end up with a giant zit on your face that even your makeup cant hide anymore.

Visting a thrift store is another great idea. Some people are under the misconception that only poor people shop there, but no. I’ve gone there many times over the years with my friends and often, the stuff there is economical and very cute.

All in all, make sure that whatever you buy is something YOU really love, not because a magazine or a friend said so. Make sure its you that likes it, not someone else.

Thats it, thats all I’ve got. Hope it helped some of you and that you’ll be all the wiser and avoid the mistakes I made when I was a bit younger.

Fashion This Week : Jumpsuits

Make some space in your closets, because jumpsuits and playsuits are making a big spash this season. They look fabulous AND feel it, so go ahead and experiment.

£30.00

ASOS Zip Front Jumpsuit with Stap Detail

 

I, myself, have worn jumpsuits in the past, but if you’re new to them, make sure to pair it with a jacket or blazer to make the look more subtle.

£25.99

Jerma Crossover Tailored Jumpsuit In Black

A definite no-no (at least in my case) when it comes to jumpsuits is making sure you don’t wear a halter one unless you have appealing shoulders (I don’t).

£50.00

ASOS Jumpsuit With Halter in Monochrome

Going for a layered or loose jumpsuit in a plain colour is a good choice; don’t be afraid to make a few mistakes.

£55.00

ASOS Simple Jumpsuit with Long Sleeves

If its still warm where you are (it isnt here), you can go for a teaser playsuitV-neckline with a belt at the waist, sequins, they’re all good for the perfect finish.

£22.50

ASOS Snake Hot Pant Slash Front Playsuit

I’ve given the links to all the pictures in their description (below the picture), if you’re interested in looking them up.

Stay beautiful!

Fashion That’s Evergreen : The Little Black Dress

You know what they say, “One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress“. This week, I had to attend this semi-formal party at a hotel for my dad’s company and I wasn’t sure what to wear. The theme was black. So I had even lesser choice. But I ended up with this Little Mistress dress with bodycon fit and round neckline for £34.80 and I loved it. Some of the other dresses I considered were a Oasis Lace Sweetheart Dress (£41.00), a Lashes of London Midi dress (£55.00) and a Mango Chiffon Drape Bustier Dress ( £49.00).

No choice was the wrong choice.

Fashion This Week : Animal Prints

From bags and shoes, to jeggings and dresses, its all I could see. I just recently bought an animal print sequin shirt from BHS, and it is fabulous. Check out some of these.
