COPING WITH SCHOOL, WORK AND SOCIAL MEDIA.[UPDATE]

maxresdefault

From the end of last year I had been looking for a Job. Reason being that I wanted to study this year and my mom didn’t have the money to take me to University or to any other further education Institute. Beginning of this year I found a job at shop called Clarks and decided that I would study Marketing Long Distance.

I have been doing that ever since and I must admit, it has been hard. I work from Monday to Sunday and get 5 days off every month. I am very grateful for the job that I have because it gives me a source of income and I still get to study however I have literally no time. Hence why I’ve been blogging less and posting less on social media.

While doing this I have met many beautiful people who make this less harder than it is. I have laughed continuously and learnt many different things. I have learnt that each day is an opportunity to learn and I feel like I have learnt to grow up emotionally and to deal with things in better ways. I have learnt to be independent and to stand on my own and not feel like there is something wrong with that.

Even though I will be posting less and doing less of the things I love, I want you guys to know that I love you so much and that I am gonna be trying my best to deliver content continuously. I don’t want you guys to feel like I am losing interest in this whole thing because you guys mean so much to me but I want you guys to understand the situation that I am in.

Once again thank you so much for the support that you guys have given me from the start till now. I honestly appreciate it.

Leave a comment telling me the hardest situation you have had to go through in your life, if you want to be private then you can email me.

COLLABMAS DAY 5: 5 HAIRSTYLES FOR SHORT RELAXED HAIR.

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!
