Hey guys what is up? So today i’m collaborating with Adropofserendipity and we are doing something I’ve never actually done on my blog – Hairstyles! We’ve decided too both do different types of hairstyles for our kind of hair. We both do have different types of hairs so this will be really fun and interesting. We both have the same posts so do go check her out after reading this!

So for the first hairstyle I wanted to do something easy and that anyone can do. Instead of only just doing a  bun I wanted to add a little more funk to it so I did tease my hair at the ends and trust me the hairstyle went from a 0 to a 100.

The second hairstyle is something that is very easy to do that still looks stylish. So this is for when you don’t wanna be all too extra but  you still want to look like you’ve tried. All I did for this hairstyle is sweep all my hair to one side and then braid it down so that your hair is secure and then for more juice I did leave out some of my hair on one side.

The third hairstyle is actually something that I came up with as of right now. My initial take was to have a leave out on the side that was singly braided but as I was doing it, I saw more potential into the hairstyle. So what I did was part a square in the middle of my head then with the hair in the square I twist braided it all singly. Then to get the shape I twisted all the  twist braids into one braid until it was one huge braid then I just stuck it to back of my head with a clip, making sure to keep it in a circular kind of shape.

whats nice about this hairstyle is that you can have your hair both down or in a bun and it would still look good.



The next hairstyle I did was this princessy kind of hairstyle. I actually tried this hairstyle out yesterday first and I actually liked how it looked/

The next hairstyle I have is of a bun. This is an easy low bun hairstyle with some juice. All I did was part some hair out on the side and then tie everything up so that it looked like a normal side out bun but then instead of just leaving the hair out I braided it all and then clipped it at the back of my head.

The last hairstyle I did was very easy. In fact I normally do this hairstyle when I’m just chilling at home or even when going out. So for this hairstyle all you have to do is part out a square in the middle of your head to the size of your liking  and then just tie that up into a bun then you can either leave your hair down with it or tied up depending on what you prefer.

TIP : To make these hairstyles a little more saucy you can actually add some gel to your edges so that everything looks put together.

Yuup guys so those are the Hairstyles I managed to come up with. Tell me what your favorite hairstyle is and what is your go to hairstyle. Anyway thank you guys for reading and do please go and check out Adropofserendipity on her blog and her Instagram, honestly I love reading her captions and she’s such a sweet girl. Also wanna say thank you to her for agreeing to this collab!

10 things to do this Spring.

Okay so September just started and for South Africa thats the beginning of spring im not sure about everyone out there but i think for some of you its spring too so I’ve thought of 10 fun things that you can do with your friends or even with family that are cheap and easy to do so just get out there and make his Spring a hell of a good one.

1. Have a picnic at the park.
     Okay I think most of us love socialising with our friends, being crazy, and laughing the whole day so what better way to spend then catching up over great food and desserts and just being crazy


2.Ride a bike.
I don’t know how old you are but I know that as you start growing you forget wll about  your childhood best friends  (your bike) and start making new ones (your phone) but for this spring forget all about your new friends and go back to your old ones and just spend some time with them. Go riding around the block, call your friends or your brothers and sisters to ride around with you. Play rope skipping with a bunch of your friends and just run around like you used to when you were 10.


3.Paint your fingernails.
Are you artsy or girly? Then experiment all different types of colors and combinations on your nails. Do weird colors or just go plain and simple for each and every week. Hit your friends up and spend your time doing each others nails or even make up and choosing of outfits.


4.Take pictures.
Take your friends with to beautiful sites and just be photographers taken pictures of each other or the site itself. Change outfits and go to different places and take pictures for Instagram and just sit together and edit them the way you guys want.


Look for recipes online and call your friends or even your sister and mother and start baking or make different combinations of colorful drinks that just look so tumblr and take pictures if them and then enjoy them.


6.Listen to Music.
Call up your besties and family in your room. Hit up your speaker and just play loud music and dance around with the people you love. Have a mini party with your friends and family and just have a good time together.


7.DIY your bedroom.
Yes if you’re like me then this is what you would be doing the whole of spring, make your room the way you would like it to be, make it tumblr and just pretty or you can do alk other kinds of diy like clothing or even phone cases. For diy ideas go to pinterest.


8.Movie Marathon!
For me movies are the best if you are with your friends so call up your friends, hit up some popcorn and snacks, get some rented movies or check up Netflix and you’re on set. Watch movies till you feel like your eyes are gonna pop. Note: make sure you have everything in the room that you’re watching your movie so that you don’t have to move around looking for more snacks.


9.Make videos.
Am I the only one who loves being on camera? Who’s  always thinking she’s Rihanna? Well either way making videos is just too fun. I mean you can act out different things, sing, dance or even lips on your videos. Make videos and just be you on camera this spring and you will be ready to go.


10.Get a new hair do.
For a girl, well some there’s nothing as gun as getting a new look or a new wardrobe so do just that, go shopping with your girl friends, get your hair done and just get yourself something new to make you feel like a new person.


Okay I’m done. Hope you guys like these ideas and I’m thinking of making a whole spring thing meaning I’ll be posting a whole lot of spring related blog posts so yeah. Hope you guys find these ideas helpful.
