3 Cute Curly Hairstyles For Summer

I'm back with another hair post :)
I know I do these often but these are the posts I really enjoy making so i'm going to continue to do them.

I wanted to do this so those of you who like to curl your hair or already have naturally curly hair (in which case i'm very jealous of you) have a few ideas on what to do on 2nd & 3rd day hair. I normally like to curl my hair and wear it down as it is on day 1, then change it slightly the next day into maybe a bun or messy pony tail.

How I curl/style my hair. 

Basically all I do is curl large chunks of my hair to start with and once I've curled all of it, I like to mess them up a bit and make them a little looser.
I also take some hair spray in the palm of my hand and push it into the roots of my hair to give it more volume. And now your good to go.

Messy Braids.

Pretty straight forward, I like to pull on the braid a little to make it look thicker. I always find they look the best when my hair has been curled as it has a lot more texture and holds a lot better. I also like to pull out sections at the front as you can see :)..

Messy Bun.

I'm sure most of you already know how I do this but if not I'll just quickly run it past you.

  • Put your hair into a high pony
  • Twist the pony round into a doughnut shape
  • Use pins to keep your bun in place
  • Mess it up as much as you want to and use some hairspray (optional) 
Easyy ;)

If any of you have any hair style requests for me to do please do let me know and i'll be happy to have a go at it for you :)

Thanks for reading <3

Eleanor & Park | Book Review

Hey :) 

I'm back. Sorry it's been a while I've recently just got back from my holiday which obviously meant the next few days were spent lazing around for no reason..but it does mean some random holiday pics are coming soon ;)

Okay back to the book. 

I was recommended this book by a friend who loves reading and every time she recommends something she thinks I'll like I kind of think to myself 'okay it must be good then'. And I did need a new book to read on my holiday (turns out I read it before I went on holiday, it was too good to put down haha).

First thing, when I was looking on amazon to buy it I noticed how pretty the book cover was, I mean look at it. It looks so nice on my bedside table. I know this isn't always key information and the cover has no relevance to how good the story is but I thought I might as well just let you know that. (they also have different colored book covers, just letting you know).

I'll just give you some background information about the characters & story:

Eleanor is a 16 year old who keeps herself to herself, has a pretty bad school life but does her best to try and ignore the people that don't matter to her. She lives at home with her brothers & sisters, her mum and step dad Richie who she is not a fan of..

Park is also 16 years old. He's into magazines, music tapes and like Eleanor he is quiet. He lives with his mum & dad.

Eleanor & Park meet when Eleanor gets onto the school bus and has no seat, obviously there is a space next to Park so she has no other choice but to sit next to him. They start off in silence for a while but after some time they get to know each other slowly.

That's it i'm not spoiling anything for you, you have to go read it!

I really like the way this story was written as they give you both Eleanor & Parks point of view throughout every conversation they have. I honestly could not put it down and read it so quickly.

The only thing I didn't like about the book is how it ended. I can't tell you how or why it ended like that but I just didn't like it, but some of you might?? :(

Please go read this book it's honestly one of the best I've ever read.

You can buy it here: Eleanor & Park

If you've already read this please let me know about the ending and if you felt the same way?!?
