How to get the perfect beach waves

Unfortunately summer is almost over, but I still have a little while longer to enjoy the warm weather. I’m obsessed with beach waves and have been wearing them most of the summer. I usually just use sea salt spray, but when I want lots of waves I follow the same steps.

I start by taking a shower and air dry my hair till it’s only slightly damp. I then spray my hair with sea salt spray. Here’s a link on how to make sea salt spray

fullsizeoutput_55cfullsizeoutput_55dThen I loosely french braid my hair and let it dry over night

In the morning I let my hair out and leave it for a bit.

Sometimes I’ll use hair spray to make the waves stay better. These pictures were taken in the afternoon and I didn’t use any hairspray. The hair lasted about a day and a half before it lost the waves.

This my last summer post:(  I’m about to start back to school post and I’m already missing summer post.fullsizeoutput_559fullsizeoutput_55b

Spider bites, 200 likes, and 1 year blogging: summer week 2

Since the weather where I live has been so nice lately I decided to take some pictures outside; the photos turned out well, but A SPIRDER BIT ME! It wasn’t’ poisons, but I’m terrified of spiders, so I did freak out a bit(by a bit I mean I completely freaked out and spent over an hour researching spider bites on Google).

 

I seriously can’t believe it has already been a year since I started blogging. I remember the day I started my blog and it feels like I just started my blog. I’m still completely in love with blogging and plan on continuing to blog. I also hit 200 likes! Not much else happened this week, but I have a lot going on next week, so it was nice to have some time to relax.

I hope your having a great summer!

Cakes, Family, and Driving: Summer Week 1

I’m 18 and want to move out soon so I am learning to drive, I’m completely terrified. As a kid my siblings and I used to race these electric toy cars and when they went to fast they would fly off the track and when I was younger it was hilarious, now the thought of that actually happening completely scares me. I have been driving a few times before, but nothing consistent, now it’s time to learn. My mum took me to a parking lot and I started driving. I didn’t go above 20mph, but it’s still extremely exciting to me! I also managed to park between the lines on my first try!

If you read a lot of my post you will know my brother is in town and I’ve been forcing him to try new products that I review. I love getting to see family, two of my siblings live in a different state and my other sibling is just a few hours away in another town. Since we all live far apart it’s always nice to see them.

One day I became extremely bored and decided to bake. Usually their’s someone home, but with my dad at work and my mum out of town I had the house to myself and went a tad over bored. I made macarons, small cakes, and cake pops. The only problem is I don’t partially like sugary things(I know I’m crazy), so my family is trying to make their way through lots of sweets. Everyone in my family except my dad doesn’t eat gluten, so a lot of recipes don’t turn out very well, but after some trial and error they usually get their, If you want me to post some recipes please leave a comment below because I love to bake and am always looking for an excuse to.

I also moved! I’m still in the same town, but I just moved from an apartment to a house. I honestly miss the apartment. Don’t get me wrong their are definite perks to a house; neighbors don’t wake you up as often, I don’t have to walk my dogs as often because we now have a backyard, but their are lots of things I do miss. Two major things I miss are definitely the pool and the gym, especially since its summer. I got extremely lucky to have those things and where I’m living seems like a nice neighborhood. I still have a lot to unpack, I’m defiantly procrastinating. I did get to paint my bedroom, which is something I haven’t been allowed to do since I was 14!

I’m enjoying the summer weather and got a slight tan though I’m still the palest one in my family by a long shot. I usually just burn no matter how much sunscreen I put on; won’t stop me from laying by the pool though, just won’t be their more than an hour unless I want to look like a tomatoe for a week.pool side

My Summer Essentials

fullsizeoutput_4ebSummer has always been one of my favorite seasons. The warmth, getting to see friends, and I tend to travel more during the summer. I’ve traveled almost every summer since I was five and always loved it! I have so many great memories from summer and hopefully I’ll make some more this year. This is also my first summer as an adult(if I can be considered an adult). Is 18 an adult? I feel like at 18 you’re in-between being a teenager and an adult, but that’s not what this post is about, sorry I tend to ramble. Here are a few things I will be using constantly throughout this summer!

fullsizeoutput_4d8.jpegSwimsuits- I love spending my summer by the pool, so swimsuits are an obvious must

fullsizeoutput_4ecPolaroid Camera- I’m planning on taking lots of cute shots this summer!

fullsizeoutput_4e2IMG_5630fullsizeoutput_4e4CC or BB cream, E.L.F. concealer, and Too Faced Funfetti blush- These are great for creating a natural summer look

fullsizeoutput_4e0Sea-salt spray and Hair rings- Beach waves and braids are two of my favorite summer hairstyles and these just help achieve the perfect look

fullsizeoutput_4eefullsizeoutput_4dfsummer essentialsShorts, Flip flops, and Foot jewelry- I only recently started wearing four jewelry and now I’m obsessed with it. It’s the perfect accessory to complete my summer look. During the summer I practically live in shorts and flip flops are my go-to for when I’m heading to the pool.

fullsizeoutput_4e5fullsizeoutput_4e6Sunglasses- I have really sensitive eyes and without sunglasses I will spend the day squinting. I also just love sunglasses and probably have way to many pairs

fullsizeoutput_505Sunscreen and Sunhat’s- I burn extremely easily, so I try to be really careful, and make sure I have sun protection. Tanning doesn’t work for me, instead of getting a sun-kiss glow, I end up looking like a tomato threw up on me. Weather you burn easily or not sunscreen is a good idea.

Easy DIY T-Shirts Perfect for Summer

fullsizeoutput_44dfullsizeoutput_44efullsizeoutput_458fullsizeoutput_457Summer is almost here! Here are a few DIY shirts to start off my summer posts!fullsizeoutput_12c

I have had this shirt for over a year and never wear it because it doesn’t lay right on me, so I decided to turn it into a crop top. The first step is deciding how long you want your shirt. Once you’ve decided on the length draw a line in pencil across the shirt, so you know where to cut(if you want to hym it leave an extra half inch).

fullsizeoutput_345fullsizeoutput_346

After you cut the shirt pull the bottom of the shirt to make the edges roll in and your done! A crop top perfect for summer.

My friend visited last summer and we tie-dyed a ton of shirts. Having them all the same became old really quickly so I grabbed a pair of scissors and made a few adjustments. The first step is to cut off the bottom piece of the shirt, so it looks nicer at the end. Just like the other shirt measure how short you want it to be and draw a line in pencil. Once you know how long you want it lay in flat on the floor and start cutting strips from the bottom of the shirt to your line.

fullsizeoutput_1a2After you cut all the strips pull on them to give the shirt a nice look and your finished! The one tip I would give is if you have bigger boobs don’t cut the strips as high so it lays nicely.fullsizeoutput_1a3fullsizeoutput_49dfullsizeoutput_49f

fullsizeoutput_452To start lay your top flat and cut off the sleeves, collar, and the bottom line. Then cut to the length you want except for two triangles in the middle that will be used to tie the shirt. fullsizeoutput_451Tie the bottom and your finished! you now have the perfect top for summer. This one is probably my favorite, it turned out so cute, and I’ve never tired this style before so I was really pleased.fullsizeoutput_44fScreen Shot 2017-05-30 at 4.14.47 PM
