The Hair for Spring

These three hairstyles are my three hairstyles for this SS14. 

The Low Po

The ponytail is always in style. The low pony is very 2014. Wear it sleek for the evening, with a head band for casual, and messy with your boyfriend jeans. A touch of volume at the crown is a definite enhancement.


Deep & Too the Side

A part changes a look in an instant. The centre part wearers are poised, the non-parters are chill, but the deep part siders... they are trendy.



Long & Textured

Long and naturally messy is a look we can really only have if we live on the beach. It's such a challenge to re-create this 'natural look' in the city. My tip: use a lot of mousse, blow dry with a wide tooth comp, add some dry shampoo, then touch up with a few random bends with a curling iron. To help set the waves, put it in a twisted low bun for a bit.




I will wear them separately and I will wear them combined. These are my top three for SS14.

DIY - A Quick Fix to Glow

Looking for an instant facelift, a poreless complexion and an incredible glow? Well read on for a quick fix.


The Benefits.


Eggs are great for your complexion, especially the whites of them. They've been used in facemask recipes since ancient times, especially in Asia, to achieve beautiful radiant skin. They slow down the aging process, repair tissue damage, eliminate toxins and cell damage all the while hydrating and moisturizing. Honey has antiseptic and antibacterial properties and is a wonderful moisturizer and skin lightening agent. Lemon juice is a powerful astringent that fights off bacteria as well as a skin lightener. It reduces discolouration.

The Recipe.

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon of honey

Whisk together one tablespoon of an egg white with 1 tsp of lemon juice and a 1/2 teaspoons of honey. Next, apply in circular motions and blend onto your face (it's very runny, so be sure to apply over a sink). Let it set for 15 minutes (you should feel a tightening effect). Finally, rinse with warm water and a washcloth.

Be sure to avoid the sensitive areas around the eyes and mouth as skin around here is drier and if stretched by this tightening mask, can cause wrinkles.

Enjoy the benefits!
