I am always lazy when I miss you

Besides going to the post office I did nothing more than watch films and listen to music, sometimes I wonder if this is a waste of time. I don't know, I wasn't feeling well anyways. Unfortunately tomorrow everything goes back to normal, rotine starts and I will have to go to college. Why don't I enjoy going to college? I bet I am not the only one though.

Crossing Over

This is a fun little hairstyle that we came up with for church the other day.
Start by parting the hair right down the middle and beginning with the left half.  Section out a piece of hair from the ear up to the middle part.
  Gather it together into an elastic and create a Pull-Through. 
 Now separate that Pull-Through into 4 equal pieces and create a flat 4-Strand Braid.  Make it about 4 inches long and then secure it with an elastic. 
 Pull the rest of the right side down into a low ponytail - leaving the braid out of the ponytail. 
Now move over to the right side of the part and follow the same steps as on the right side.  You should now have two low ponytails and two loose braids. 
 Take the braid on the right side and divide the hair under the elastic into 4 equal twists.  Twist them over the middle part and combine them into the left-low ponytail with another elastic.  Now move up to the left braid and divide the hair under the elastic into 4 more equal twists.  These twist are going to be woven through the right side twists in an "over/under" pattern.  Once they've been woven through they can be added into the right-low ponytail with another elastic.  
 Now braid your two low ponytails into Flat 4-Strand Braids and secure the ends with elastics.  We've added small flower clips glued to bobby pins instead of regular hair clips because we didn't want to hide any of the weaving.   

A Little Princess (1995) - I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren’t pretty, or smart, or young. They’re still princesses. All of us. Didn’t your father ever tell you that? Didn’t he?. I guess I know most of the lines of this film, haha it's useless I know but it is my favourite since I was nine years old or something. - a song

Feeling a Little Left Out

My little guy got a medal for baseball the other day and he said that he wanted to be on "the blog" with his medal and his cool hair.
I couldn't say no to this sweet little face so here he is.
This is a super complex hairstyle so prepare yourself...
Add gel to the wet hair and spike it upwards.  Hope that's not too difficult for you.  :)
Now he can say that he's been on the blog and the world is at peace again.  :)

I got the flu! which sucks, even my eyes are aching. All I got to get today was pictures of my breakfast. Anyways my day wasn't really good either mainly because of the flu but also due to some other personal issues. To comfort myself I got a cute dress from Camden Town.

Flashback Friday: Growing Out the Bangs

These pictures were taken just a couple days after my princess turned 4 and she decided that she was getting to old for "little girl bangs". 
I remember dreading the time when we would have to grown out these bangs but it really wasn't too bad.
  We just rolled them to one side and used bendy clips to secure them into place.  On this particular day we did some low Indian Braids but the rolled bangs worked with any hairstyle. 
 We also did this style on her first day of preschool and she looked darling!

Primark bag

Here I am shifting on a uncomfortable chair, starring at the computer screen. It's almost 03:00 am and I don't feel like going to bed. I feel a bit guilty to stay up late and I have no idea why. Although it's half term and I can sleep until noon, I still feel a bit worried as I am the only person awake in my house even my cats are sleeping, everything is so dark and I don't turn the lights on. Things like that makes me want to go to bed, but in the other hand I dont want to. It seems that every single night I go through this dilemma. I would like to know what time do you usually go to sleep, it would comfort me to know that other people also stay up late.

Hippie Hair

My princess had "Hippie Day" at school this past week and she was so excited to dress up. She looked at pictures of real Hippies online to decide what to do with her hair.  This is what she came up with and I think it looks pretty authentic.  :) 
 Begin by straightening all the hair.  (It would also be darling if you used a waver.)  Grab some colored pony beads and a bit of dental floss. Part the hair right down the middle a couple inches.  Grab two small strands on each side of the part - right up front - and set one aside for a minute. 
 Fold your piece of dental floss in half and feed the fold through one of your pony beads.  Keep the other ends of your floss tightly in your fingers so it doesn't come loose.  Now feed your strand of hair through the loop in the dental floss and then pull the floss back out through the bead.  This will automatically pull the strand of hair through the bead as well.  Wrap a small clear elastic around the strand, just under the bead, to hold it in place.  Continue adding as many beads to the strand as you like.  Do the same process with the other front strand that you set aside. 
 Pull out as many small pieces of hair around the head that you like.  Place beads on each of them.  We've done 5 strand of hair here but I would've done more if our morning hadn't been so rushed.  Once all of your strand have the beads on them, go ahead and curl the ends of those strands. 
Grab a knitted, stretchy headband to go around the head.  Pull each of your beaded strands up through the headband and stretch it around the forehead.  Now let the beaded strands down and you're all finished. 
Looking back on these pictures now, it would've been so cute to tie in some random small flowers on some of these strands.  After all, Hippies did have "flower power"! 

We also have another Hippie style that we've done previously called "Feeling Groovy".
 You can find instructions for that here.

Hi there! First of all thank you for all the motivating comments, I'm feeling a bit better in terms of motivation and enthusiasm, Although I don't feel inspired, I took some pictures that I thought I could maybe share them with you. Today was cloudy again but I'm trying to feel a bit optimist about it and maybe a bit sarcastic or ironic. Today when the cold wind touched my face I said 'what a lovely breeze'.

Outfit: Dress + hat from h&m, bag primark!
