Hair time: Fishtail half updo

"I don't consider myself bald, I'm just taller than my hair." - Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Hello everyone,

today's post is dedicated especially to girls and women (sorry guys, nothing against you!) because it is a hair tutorial, as I promised in the previous post. I call it the fishtail half updo in which I also used my DIY hair bow. This hairstyle is so easy and fast to create, it took me only about 5 minutes. And it looks adorable! Interested? Keep on reading!

What you will need:

1) hair :)
2) bobby pins
3) hair bow or any other hair accessory

How to make it:

1) Take a smaller section of hair from the right side and start creating a fishtail braid:
     - divide that section into two sections,
     - take a tiny strand from the left section and put it to the right one, then take a tiny strand from the right section and put it to the left one,
     - repeat the previous line and continue braiding.
2) For best results, braid the hair right next to your head.
3) When you get to the middle of the back of the head, stop braiding and take one or two bobby pins to secure the braid in place.
4) Repeat step 1-3, this time on the left side.
5) Now you should have two little fishtail braids. To spice it up and hide the bobby pins, add a hair bow! (I think I failed this step...Kind of.)

Keep in mind that I'm not a pro. I did not make it perfect at all, my hair was freshly washed (and not fully dry) so it was not cooperating with me properly. I hope you will give it a try!

Have a nice day!

DIY: Hair bow

“You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” - Maya Angelou

Hello everyone,

it's been a while ago since I've done a DIY (do it yourself) project so I decided to make a new one and write about it in this post. Today I will show you how to make a hair bow! I bet this is one of the easiest DIY's ever! No sewing required. Great, right? And you need only a few supplies. I wonder why I did not make myself some cute hair bows before...

Let's start!

What you will need:

1) some pieces of fabric (mine are the leftovers from the crop tops I made out of old shirts, tutorial HERE)
2) scissors
3) fabric glue (or glue for every material)
4) one or two heavy books

How to make it:

1) Take a piece of fabric, fold all four edges to create the shape of a rectangle and glue them to stay in place.
2) Put the rectangular fabric under a very heavy book (or two, like I did) for 10 to 15 minutes so the glue has time to dry a little bit.
3) Now take the fabric and fold it in the middle (as shown in the picture) to create the shape of a bow. Then, with the glue bond the folds and squeeze them together for a few minutes so the glue can dry.
4) From another piece of fabric, cut off a strip of fabric, put it around the center of the bow and of course, glue it.

5) Leave the bow to dry completely for a couple of hours.
6) To convert it into a hair bow:
     - take one or two bobby pins and put them through the strip of fabric on the back, or
     - take a larger hair clip and glue it on the back of the bow.

And you are done! You can make a ton of them, I know I will. Next time, I will show you how to use this cute little thing in a hairstyle. Now I have to get back to studying.

Happy Sunday!

Tag: Beauty blogger tag

Hello everyone,

as you can tell from the title, I am going to do the beauty blogger tag even though I don't consider myself as a beauty blogger - I like to write about anything, beauty related stuff is not my thing at all. However, I was tagged by The ugly truth or sweet lies? (check her out!) to answer the questions written below. Why not? So let's start!

The rules:
1) Tag the creator of the tag - The Beau Bow
2) Tag some more beauty bloggers you want to do the tag
3) Title your post "The beauty blogger tag"
4) Answer the questions

And here are the questions:

1) Name the beauty routine you barely do!
Now you will laugh about me... I don't really have any makeup routine because I rarely use makeup except for special occasions. I just don't see the point of using makeup everyday. I am a strange kid, I admit.

2) Is washing your makeup brushes something you regularly do?
Since I don't use makeup everyday, my few makeup brushes that I have are chilling on the shelf all dusty. But I try to clean them once a month. Oh come on, nobody likes to do this!

3) How long will you last with chipped nail varnish?
It depends on the color of the nail polish. If it is a dark one, I will remove it immediately. In general, I can't stand chipped nail polish.

4) How long do you put off buying/replacing a beauty or nail polish product even if you need it (ie. top coat, foundation, etc.)?
I put off buying ANY stuff/thing/product if I don't have some extra money to spend. So, when money finally fills my wallet, I will get the oh-so-much-needed thingy.

5) What is your worst beauty habit?
I cannot remember of any bad habit right now, but when I was little, I was biting my poor nails like crazy. Fortunately, I got rid of this gross habit.

6) Name something non-beauty related you put off doing all the time?
I have to study pharmacology for my next exam and I need to start with it NOW.

7) When going out somewhere do you leave getting ready to the last minute or not?
Usually yes, except for special events I take my time to get ready.

8) Can you commit to spending bans?
Yes. I stand behind my words.

9) How organized is your makeup and nail polish collection?
Makeup collection? Hm... I don't really have one. The products are just lying around. The nail polishes are much more organized, I keep them in a clear plastic box.

10) What is the longest time you have gone without writing a blog post?
I always have a post up every Sunday so there is no longest time, sorry.

To continue, I tag:

And one more thing! Ana from With Love, Ana. is having an awesome summer giveaway on her blog, you should definitely check it out!

Till next Sunday,

July Favorites

“We don't need to have just one favorite. We keep adding favorites. Our favorite book is always the book that speaks most directly to us at a particular stage in our lives. And our lives change. We have other favorites that give us what we most need at that particular time. But we never lose the old favorites. They're always with us. We just sort of accumulate them.” - Lloyd Alexander

Hello everyone,

I know that it is already August but July is not that far away, right? So I decided to write something about my "favorites" from the previous month. Just to warn you, this will be a little bit different from the favorites posts that other bloggers write - it is not just about cosmetics and beauty.

In the next lines, there are 10 questions which I took from a Youtuber named Marzia. I think they are quite interesting and different. Have fun reading my answers!

1) What is the funniest thing that happened to you?

This is a hard question. I'd go with my dog Blue because he is such a trouble-maker but in a good way! My little fellow always makes me smile.

2) Did you read any books?

Oh yes, I did! *jumping up and down* Besides the big, fat and heavy Textbook of Medical Physiology (which I needed to read a couple of times because of an exam) I read four other books: Kirurginja, Bes angelov, Pretrgana naveza in Čipke. Two weeks were enough for all of them. :)

(These books are pretty old as you can see.)

3) Did you watch any movies?
Of course, who does not watch movies? Last Monday, I went to the cinema with a good friend and we watched Grown ups 2 - our abdominal muscles were in pain!

4) Something that made you proud of yourself?

I finished my 2nd year (or 4th semester) of studies! Studying medicine is not so hard, at least until now.

5) Did you play any games?

No. Games are not my thing.

6) Did you travel anywhere?

Is traveling to my boyfriend's house included? Not really, right? Unfortunately I have to say no... Hopefully I will go somewhere in August.

7) Which foods did you try and loved?

I tried a Japanese dish, I think it is called Yakisoba (or maybe Yakisuba?). The combination of noodles, vegetables, roast duch and soy sauce is delicious.

8) Which songs did you like?

OneRepublic - Counting stars
Billy Talent - Pins and needles
Nicci - The summer is magic

9) Which products did you like?

I picked one beauty and one fashion item that I liked the most:
Essie Mint Candy Apple nail polish
White high-waisted shorts

10) What did you learn?

That I need to be more honest with myself. Oh, and I learned a lot of physiology stuff, as mentioned before. :)

Have a nice start of August!
