October In's and Out's

October has been a wierd month. When I look back to it I see a 4 hour maths test, loads of quizes and leaves falling. Octomber is also the moth I began to write in my blog, so thank you for commenting and following my blog!
 Warm and cosy grey cardigans! I love staying inside on a rainy cold day, bundled up in my big cardigan (preferably a size up). I also love watching the people outside, thinking how lucky I am to feel nice and warm!


Rememeber me? by Sophie Kinsella! It is the coolest book ever, very girly, perfect to read on a lazy sunday night. It is lso very funny and extremly girly! If you like her books, you will surely love this one!



     Chi Shine Infusion! Although it is not the cheapest hair product, it makes your hair look nice and shiny! It doesn't weigh your hair down a bit, and your hair will look like the hair from magazines. Who doesn't want that?

 Dry cuticles! My cuticles are fine, but the ones from my thums always seem to exfoliate and get dry! I always forget to apply vaseline, cause my cuticles seem like such an unimportant detail, but it still bothers me!
Oily hair! I used to only wash my hair 2 times a week. Scince I have been litlle I have only washed my hair 2 times a week.  My scalp is usually very obidient and my hair would still look OK on day 4! But lately I have to wash my hair  3 times a week! To me it is horrible!
Snow that turns into rain. Snow is Ok, but here in Moscow we have it 5 months a year, and trust me, you will get sick of it ( especially if you lovely classmates love to wait for you after hours and throw you in snow). But rain snow to me is simply gloomy and it reminds me of the clod winter ahead!

Tinted lips!

Tinted lips- A slight change in the colour of your lips.

1. You should have nicely moisturised lips, so put on a lip balm or a little bit of veseline.
2. Apply lipstick of your choise,  the colours that work best are berries, red, dark pinks. Not nudes.

3. Take a napkin and put it in between you lips, then press lightly to remove excess lipstick.

That's all! Really simple, and not as out there as big bright lip would be! This is really great for lipsticks that might be too dark or bright!

Tips with Conditioner!

Are you using the most out of conditioner? Till a couple of weeks ago I took conditioner for granted, like something I must do every time I wash my hair, but I found out some new stuff.

   1. If you want to have softer hair, leave you conditioner on for longer! I was once reading in the bath and i got totally lost in the story. After about 15 minutes I remembered my conditioner. My hair was so much more softer, and full of shine! I now leave it on longer every time I wash my hair!
 2. After you put on conditioner, put you hair in a shower cap. That way it will work better because of the hot air in the cap, and no contact with the water.
 3. First, wash your hair, after that put on conditioner and a shower cap, and only after that do the other things one usually does in the bath. That way you will not get bored while you wait for the conditioner to work, and you also save some time!

 Try out this tips, and always use conditioner, it is the best way to healthier hair!                                                                                      

This Jhon Frieda conditioner is my fave!

You are beautiful, just the way you Are!

Have you heard Bruno Mars' new single, Just the way you are? You probabaly have because it is everywhere! It's a great song but the lyrics are amzing!
If you ever feel like you look awful, or you are having a bad day, or you think you look too fat or too skinny, or like you have the worst skin ever, you feel like you are the ugliest person ever, listen to this song! But nice guys, the boyfriend type, don't care about how you look, it is personality that matters, and young girls always seem to find something wrong abut themselves! And if you are constantly complaining about yourself, people will eventually think you look bad, just because you consider yourself badlooking! And have you ever noticed how the popular girls always seem so confident? It is because they embrace their flaws, and that makes them unique.
Oh her eyes, her eyes
Make the stars look like they're not shining
Her hair, her hair
Falls perfectly without her trying

She's so beautiful
And I tell her every day

Yeah I know, I know
When I compliment her
She wont believe me
And its so, its so
Sad to think she don't see what I see

But every time she asks me do I look okay
I say

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

Her nails, her nails
I could kiss them all day if she'd let me
Her laugh, her laugh
She hates but I think its so sexy

She's so beautiful
And I tell her every day

Oh you know, you know, you know
Id never ask you to change
If perfect is what you're searching for
Then just stay the same

So don't even bother asking
If you look okay
You know I say

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

The way you are
The way you are
Girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are.

He said it all! And he is so right!

How to survive BRACES.

How to survive Braces! Your smile is gorgeous with and without them, but here are some simple tips to feel more confident!
1. Make sure your theeth are always clean! Braces can give you bad breath because of food getting stuck beetween the archwire and the brackets, and you might not even realize it! And what would be the point of wearing braces if you teeth are full of caries?
2. You can toatally funk up your teeth with different coloured rubber bands, but try to avoid yellow because it will make you teeth look yellowish!
3.If you ever get teased about your braces, smile as wide and beautifully as you can, to show the person that  mean words don't affect you! From experience, they'll leave you alone!
4. You can kiss with braces! It is the same, and some boys even find it even more intriguing!
5. After you take them off, remember to wear your retainers,  trust me, it is crucial. If you don't, your teeth will move back to their original position!
I hope this helped you, and trust me, braces are good for you. I'm taking mine off next month, and I am so exited! It was all worth it, my teeth are so beautiful and straight now!

Turn powder blush into cream blush!

My favourite beauty item of all time is blush. I love blush because it gives my face a beautiful colour, and I look pretty and radient. When you apply blush, the effect you want is a rosy, cute colour, just like you would have come out of the shower minutes ago. Cream blush gives a really glowy look, but it doesn't come in many variaties of colours, and good cheap ones are hard to find. My favourite trick (especially in the winter time) is to add just a touch of vaseline over already powdered cheeks. It has the same effect, plus in the harsh weather and constant wind, it helps you cheeks from getting dry.

I hope you like this quick trick, and with blush, less is always more!
