How to do Polka Dot nails!

If you're bored of having plain nails and want to give your nails a cute makeover, try doing polka dot nails, they are so easy and simple to do, and I will show you how in this post! First choose two colours you want to work with as a base coat and a polka dot colour, I chose these two shades of pink by Barry M, one is a coral colour and the other a peach colour which I think will work well together.



Then bend out a bobby pin, and use the rounded ends to create the polka dots, dab some of the polka dot colour onto a piece of paper and use this as a "palette" to create the dots.


Then just dot the bobby pin with the colour applied to it, randomly on your nail, and they're done!



A simple and quick way to update your nails! Hope you enjoyed reading and tried this yourself! I might do more nail tutorials in the future :)

Five Tips to Healthy Hair

If like me, you suffer from dry lackluster locks and are sick of looking at dead dull hair day after day, you might want to take a look at these tips to get you on your way to shiny healthy hair...

1: Avoid dying your hair too much!
Dying your hair regularly really damages hair and can cause it to become brittle and dry, so if you do really want to change your hair, try highlights or low lights, they can be less obvious when they fade out if done in a subtle colour and you can ask your hairdresser to leave the thin top layer of your hair highlight free so it will be less obvious when the roots start to come through. Use colour protecting serum, shampoo or conditioner to keep your colour longer. This'll help your hair stay healthy and you will also have changed your hair colour somewhat!

2: Try not to use heat styling products too often. Curlers and straighteners can also really hurt your hair and if you use them regularly then they can cause your hair to become coarse over time. Instead of constantly using heat styling equipment, try french plaiting your hair after running it through with a hairdryer, leaving it in overnight then taking it out in the morning, you'll get healthier shinier beachy hair, which will hopefully start to become less dry over time.

3: Don't use shampoo that could be doing more harm than good; some shampoos contain ingredients callled Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Ammonium Laureth Sulfate, these chemicals strip your hair and contribute to making it dry. So steer clear of shampoos with these chemicals listed in the ingredients. I use Elvive Full Restore 5 conditioner, as it doesn't have these chemicals and treats coloured hair whilst replenishing dry and broken hair .

4: Don't brush your hair whilst its still wet! Your hair is a lot weaker when it is wet than when it is dry, and brushing it when you've came straight out of the shower can cause breakage, and can cause even more damage.

5:  Get your hair trimmed often to avoid split ends and maintain healthy hair.

Back to school

September is a month most people around schooling age dread, it means the start of school! But it doesn't have to be so grim; if like me, you are starting sixth form this September and are able to wear what you want I've found some stylish looks to help get you through the cold months of rain wind and school;

Pretty Prep
If you want to work the Ivy League look then these few pieces will benefit your wardrobe greatly;

This gorgeous "Princess Coat" from Miss Selfridge will make you the envy of all your peers, with the tan lining and gold buttons it exudes classiness and, lets face it, is very cute.


Topshop's "Liberty Print Julia Dress, is sweet but also screams elegance, its small russet and grey flowers set off the tan trim of the coat delightfully, and the kicked out skirt will make you look like the cutest thing to grace your schools halls.






To complete the look are these suede brogues from New Look. These are classic shoes and will look great with even just a pair of jeans and a crisp white shirt if you want to work the androgynous look, but they work even better with this outfit, injecting just a touch of androgyny to this look.


Comfortably Casual
If you just want to relax this autumn/winter here's how to do it whilst still looking devastatingly stylish;


This classic Breton striped jumper from H&M can be worn with tons of different outfits and will keep you snug in the winter weather.








These "Supersoft Skinny" jeans Topshop will see you through the whole school year and ensure you always look great, and paired with the H&M jumper creates a casual laid back feel.




H&Ms knee high riding boots are perfect to finish the look, and give the outfit an air of sophistication and elegance.



Hopefully these couple of looks will help you to put together your back to school outfits and give you some more inspiration!
