DIY: Lemon and Sugar Facial Scrub.

Perfect Skin.

If your prone to tired looking and irritably breakout skin this will not only benefit your skin but save you money too! This is such an effective natural resource, easy to do lip&facial scrub.

All you need: 1/2 a lemon and some sugar(use any small bowl or plastic container big enough for the lemon to fit to put sugar into).

Why are these good for my skin? Simple. Lemon – A natural source of Vitamin C; an ingredient commonly used to lighten sun and age spots and even out skin tone; A natural astringent that tightens pores and brightens the complexion.
Sugar – A natural exfoliator; a natural source of glycolic acid which evens out skin tone, cleans pores, and improves overall skin texture by removing dead, dull skin cells.


What to do- Start with a clean face ( rinsing your face with warm water to open the pores helps ).
Then you wanna take half a lemon and dip the open side(my way explaining "the side that's not the skin") in your small bowl of sugar. Give it a few turns make sure you get a good bit of sugar on there. Then simply rub in circular motions all over your face(avoiding the eyes of course) until you feel the sugar dissolving a little for about 3 minutes. Rinse off with warm water then cool to ensure those pores tighten up! also use  this scrub on your lips for a softer, brighter pout. The lemon juice will brighten your skin and certainly wake you up a bit I sometimes use in the morning before school to make my face glow. I would use this 1-3 times a week. Hope this was helpful and you enjoyed this:) 


Have a nice day and stay perfect

The Shoe Must Haves.

Mmmmm Shoes.

Shoes are the most accessible way into the new season trends. Not many of us can afford the Burberry lace twin-sets or the Mulberry short suits, but we might be able to invest in a pair of their vinyl sandals or platform heels.
Get the must-have shoe of the season and, not only will you have all your friends drooling with envy, but it will act like a sartorial shot in the arm to the rest of your wardrobe – everything else will inevitably follow.
Here are some of the must have shoes in my opinion– designer and high street – that I'm currently lusting after for spring/summer 2014. Guaranteed to change your wardrobe and make it more uniquely stylish with up-to-date fashion.
Mulberry
€550
Mulberry Platform sandals Block heels are still big for the new season(well I absolutely adore block heels and to me,will never go out of fashion) and these Mulberry platform heels combine a 70s style with spring’s penchant for wild florals.

zara
€42.00
If you don’t have £600 to burn, then Zara have a pair of 70s inspired platforms of their own that will look great with that shirt dress you have your eye on for spring/summer.


Burberry 
€500
When Cara Delevingne walked down the Burberry catwalk last September in that pastel pink lace skirt and pencil skirt, we must admit to being momentarily distracted – by the gorgeous fuschia pink sandals on her feet. These will be absolutely perfect for summer, accessorised with that lovely golden tan you’re going to have, so get saving.


M&S
€31.00
There’s a revolution underway at Britain’s former favourite high street store. You may have noticed(if you live near M&S) some great new pieces sneaking onto the shop floor in recent months though we know M&S has traditionally been quite poor. These pink ankle strap shoes will look great with your pleated midi-skirts and checked pencil skirts for spring.
These white whistles gladiator-ish platformy sandals(not even close to what they are called) are my favourite shoes ever I think they are so so cute and spring-y but super high fashion too, I unfortunately do not even remember where I found these so I'm just as frustrated as you..

Second/Third day hair?

The perfect hairstyle.



(Warning: LOTS of teasing..)

Im going to show you a few different methods for the messy bun.

This is awesome for people with thin hair wanting a thicker effect.





So I was really bored with my hair and wasn't really in the mood for my regular routine as in Washing then drying then curling and out the door. Same hair the majority of the time and well I wasnt a stranger to messy buns I just hadn't worn it in awhile and decided to add a cute hair band. (Excuse the glasses in my hand I didnt realise they were in the pic).



 So the famous "messy bun" I apologise I don't have any tutorial  photos as I didn't take any in the process Although It's really not very difficult.

Your going to need hair spray a teasing brush(although not necessary) Bobby pins and hair bobbles( if its easier that way).


Your Gonna wanna tease tease tease all over I first started at the top and kinda did completely random sections then teased them.Tease a section then put hairspray then tease a bit more but leave bits of hair hang out at the sides. So when your whole head looks like a terrible afro fail your ready to pony tail it. Do not make a very tight pony tail as the tease effect will not show as much so then I would tease the whole pony tail and either wrap it and hold it with bobby pins or you can ad another hair bobble or another option for an even bigger look is to add a hair doughnut.

    Tease your hair to create volume. Brush the front of your hair down over your face, then back-brush it by placing the brush in the middle of the hair and gently brushing back toward the roots; do this until the desired level of teasing is achieved. Repeat with the sides of your hair by lifting your hair and back-brushing. When you’re done, gently smooth your hair back over the crown of your head.

Flip your hair upside-down and gather it in your hands. This will increase your hair’s volume and help eliminate bumps.
