Turkey Foot

We are just getting back home from a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and wanted to share our hairstyle for Thanksgiving Day.  It's called the "Turkey Foot" because it has the shape of one of the claws right off a turkey.
Begin by creating an off-centered part on the top of the head.  Have your part go back to the crown of the head and then stop. 
You are going to create a Half-French Braid on each side of the part.  It's a Half-French Braid because you will only be gathering hair into the top side of each braid - the side closest to your part.  Continue adding hair in until you come to the point where you stopped your part.  Finish it off with a Regular 3-Strand Braid. 
 Do the same with the opposite side of the head.  Have your princess hold those two braids while you pull the hair underneath - from ear to ear - into an elastic at the back of the head. 
 Create a Regular 3-Strand Braid out of that new ponytail and comb the rest of the hair straight down.  Bring your two top braids to the back of the head and join them with your new braid about 3 inches down.  Secure it with an elastic and this will create your Turkey Foot shape.  Add any fun hair clips that you like and spray it with some hairspray for hold. 
We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and didn't damage your waistlines too much!  :) 

You know what, well let me tell you up front that I will be pretty negative in this post and that is because I feel like writing what I feel at the moment. I feel really tired, I feel tired of saying the word 'tired'. I don't know, I get this bad feeling about days, and life. Sometimes I don't even know how to explain it properly. I get tired of this blog, and of myself and people and I don't know what to do. I don't longer know what I really like, or how I want my life to be. And the worst thing, I get annoyed by positive people that generally says 'oh, stop complaining life is great, you gotta go for what you want and be happy'. Oh screw that, if I sound dramatic or depressing I don't longer care, at least not today not at this very second. I might walk into the kitchen to eat a toast and all of the sudden I will feel inspired and bloody happy. Of course this is very unlikely to happen. But who knows! I'm just tired of feeling tired and not physically. But in the other hand I'm okay emotionally. So I don't know what the heck is wrong with me. I wish I was normal. I wish I wouldn't think too much about life.. and I wish I would care a little less or perhaps I should care a little more. Sometimes I wish I could change my name, move out of the city and dye my hair black with bangs, and act totally different.I might do it someday or maybe not. In the mean time I'll be myself.

I don’t care about anyone, and the feeling is quite obviously mutual.

I have been so lazy to carry my camera out, and take outfit pictures or even portraits, so I have been photographing this kinda of things. I know it is a bit repetitive. But that is all I've got to show you ha! By the way that cute vintage lipstick is from Boots. So I'm dressed, perhaps not really prepared to face the cold outside. Soon I gotta go get the train to go to university,I might get a coffee, read my book and listen to music, and this song is part of my soundtrack along with Elvis, The Everly Brothers, Frankie Lymon and Connie Francisssss. a song

Friday's Film: Long Knots

We posted a video last week showing you how to do some flat iron curls and this is the other part of that same hairstyle.  These are called Long Knots and they add a fun look to lots of different styles.  (I apologize for some of the instruction being out of the frame but hopefully it won't hinder the basic idea.)
Remember that you can secure your Long Knots with bobby pins if you would like to.
Like I said in the video, you don't need to secure the bangs before hand but we chose to do that for this particular style. 
We only did 3 knots here but you can do as many as you like and they can be as big or as small as you like just depending on how much hair you grab. 
Her ends were just left hanging for this style but you can pull them into braids, buns, or ponytails as well. 
We just finished it off with some flat iron curls and we posted the video for those last Friday.

When the sun don't shine.

I stare at the cloudy sky.

I feel tired, it seems that doesn't matter how early I wake up, time won't be enough. It goes by so bloody fast and it makes me tired. I tell you something city life is not good as it seems, especially when are getting older and have no much enthusiasm. Oh I know I am not old at all. However, I'm really enthusiastic to lay down on bed. x

Happy Thanksgiving!

I just wanted to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving and I hope that it's a wonderful one for you!  I am grateful for all of the comments and followers that help support this blog.  Here are some fun things you can use for the holiday!

This is our Turkey Time Hairstyle that is always a fun and easy one.

Here are some other little clip ideas for you as well.

Half-Down French Braids

I'm so excited because my princess and I have been working on a whole collection of hairstyles that we're going to call "Holiday Hairstyles" and we'll start posting those in December.  Get excited because there are some fun ones!  :) 
This is a really simple idea that is great for school because it looks nice and it holds together really well.
Start by pulling the hair on top of the head half-up by and securing it into an elastic.  Now divide all the hair below the elastic in half by creating a part right down the center.  Clip one side out of the way while you work with the other. 
Divide your ponytail in half and then take one of the halves and divide it into 3 equal sections.  You will plate the sections once as a Regular Braid and then start adding in hair as a French Braid from the area of hair right below it.  Have that French Braid go on a diagonal from the center of the head down towards the opposite edge. 
Do the same with the other half of your ponytail and the opposite side of the head.
 Finish plating both French Braids into Regular 3-Strand Braids and secure them each at the bottom with an elastic.  I wrapped my elastic one final time at the bottom and made sure not to pull the hair completely through and that gave me these little puffs at the bottom.
  Nice and easy and she'll be set to go!

Retrospective volume one


Hello there. So I have found some old photographs from my old blog which I got it deleted and I decided to post them in this blog. Summer 2008/2009

Black & white snaps

Between stations and bus stops, waiting waiting.
I wait for the train, I wait slow walkers.
Alight, doors closing. It is so tiresome, well I won't even mention traffic.
Public Transportation; the main cause of my stress - I should wake up much EARLIER.
