Fabulous Hair/DIY

Hey Bloggers!

I am so sorry I have not blogged in a while. I have been so busy with school. I just finished AP Exams and took the SAT last Saturday. I am currently in the week of finals and I have the ACT this upcoming Saturday. I’ve been extremely busy and stressed but i decided to take a break!

I am so excited for this tutorial! My dear friend, Allie (aka allietheunicorn) and I decided that we wanted to buy real rooster feathers as hair extension! They look pretty fabulous!

We bought these from a sweet etsy shop!

The feathers feel nice but look even better!

1st, we took the beads that the feathers came with and put the beads in our hair using a flossing thread. We kinda struggled with this. (maybe i will post a video on how to do it, coming up soon!)

Then we put the feathers into the bead, which was really easy and used pliers to close the bead and secure the feathers!

The feathers are relatively cheap and fun to accesorize with. They will usually last up to 3 months and can get wet, curled, or straightened. It’s like real hair!

PLUS! It looks fabulous on short and long hair!

I really hope you guys enjoy this as much as I do!

Ipsy January Bag Review!

Hey guys! 🙂 This is the review for the January Ipsy bag. 🙂 This is my second month doing it and I love it! If i were you guys, i would get an account! Basically, what you do is pay 10 dollars and every month, you get 4 to 5 sample products but a lot of the times they are big samples or just regular products. It’s a great way to try new things and you don’t have to get one each month!

So let’s get started!

Image

This is what this month’s bag looked like! It was super adorable!

ImageThese are the products that came with it!

Image

This would get a 10 out of 10. I absolutely love it. Not only does it smell heavenly, but it also moisturizes pretty well 🙂

Image

This hairspray is my favorite. It feels a little stiff in your hair but it does the job of keeping your hair in place through humidity and everything!

Image

This is the argon oil and it works pretty well. It is not breaking out my face and it is moisturizing my face and my eyelashes. My hair is too short to apply it to.

Image

This is the nail polish that came with it and applying a coat to it looks very nice, below i will post a picture of what it looks like on my nail. However, I didn’t let it dry before i applied a second coat so it’s all over my nails.Image

This is the last item and it is a small shader brush. I was so excited for this but it ended up being a little bit of a disappointment. The brush is cool. It has indents in it to place your fingers in and that is what one stroke looks like. I was super excited but once i used it, it didn’t look that great. I was a little disappointed.

Overall, this was a great Ipsy Bag!

Yours truly.

Getting Organized- Self-Improvement

A couple weeks ago, i was randomly searching on ebay when i found this lovely box (which can be found in multiple colors) and decided that it was so cheap, that i would buy it. Side note-most of the time, i am pretty messy but sometimes i get in a mood where i have to get organized and clean or else i can’t be productive, and those are the times i over organize. So, i bought 4 of these cute boxes for myself and 2 for my mom and we both love them! 

These are so cheap, cute, and convenient! 

Image

This is in my bathroom where i used them to put my make-up. I wish i would have shown you the before picture because it is egregious. Seriously. I had make-up all over the place and couldn’t find anything in the limited time i have to get ready in the morning ( since i like to sleep in late) and NOW it’s super organized! I looove it 🙂 

Image

 

You see how cute that is! The little cupcakes and all! It’s so classy and adorable! 

 

Are you wondering where the 4th box is? 🙂 ( since there are only 3 in the picture) 

    WELL!!! I used it on my desk. It has my pencils and pens, markers, index cards, etc! I JUST LOVE it! ( i didn’t get to take a picture of it yet, sorry) 

Yours truly.

I forgot to mention that i am not advertising this or getting paid. I’m just doing it for fun! I want to share with you all on how you could improve your organizational skills with just 2.50$ 🙂 

Swaaaaag

Hey guys!! 

http://www.swaggable.com

This is a website where you sign up to get free items. All you do is sign up and then click on what you want. Then, -this is the best part- companies pick who they want to try the items for FREE! And all you have to do is go back on the page and write a short review! How awesome is that! 

What’s the catch?

NOTHING! The companies want you to try it and hope to get in return, more advertisement and good reviews! However, you should always be honest! 

Yours always. 

           Ari 🙂

Second: https://www.bzzagent.com is really cool! You take these surveys and have to build up to getting samples! I absolutely looove it! 

 

Homecoming Week

Heeeey yall! So i am very sad that i won’t be going to homecoming because it’s at House of Blues, the place i hold dear to my heart! Plus, i’m missing out on all the dancing, but i decided against it this year.

Now back to the topic, for the homecoming week, we have days where the whole school, or shall i say only the brave and awesome people, dress up for different days. Monday was class color day, Tuesday was Tacky tourist day, Wednesday was fairytale day and thursday is going to be school spirit day! I will post an OOTD tomorrow so i decided to post the tuesday and wednesday outfit right over here!

Let’s begin: Because Allie (aka http://allietheunicorn.wordpress.com ) and i were inspired to go to Goodwill together since we both love it and found some awesome clothes! We decided to get t-shirts from goodwill! Image

Allies Outfit includes: a shirt from Goodwill, my pants from a thrift store close to where i live, some long socks and some shoes! (i’m so generic because i don’t know where her shoes and socks were from)

Ari (ME): a shirt from goodwill, pants from a thrift store near my city, a hat from Clair’s (on sale for 5 $), white sandals from forever 21 ( like $12 ) and some hole-y socks that i got in Europe!

FAIIIIRY TALE DAY!!!!! So, for this, Allie http://allietheunicorn.wordpress.com and decided to be matching fairies from Tinkerbell and Friends! I was Rosetta, the garden fairy, and Allie was Tinkerbell! To create our dresses, we bought XL tshirts from the mens section and cut out the shape of our dresses. Allie sowed hers by hand and i sowed mine in the sowing machine!

ImageTaken into account that this was at school, we had to be in “dress code” so we wore shirts underneath and i wore tights because mine ended being a little too short! ImageAllies outfit: Her dress is homemade with a shirt from goodwill, her skin-color pantyhose are from target, her wings are from the dollar store, and her gold shoes are from Kohls ( i believe)

My outfit: My dress is homemade with a shirt from goodwill, my pantyhose are from target (exhilaration), my wings are from the dollar store, my headband is from walgreens, and my shoes are from payless!

Your One and Only.

HELLOO WORLD!

I wanted to show you all the artwork that i’ve made in ceramics. It has been my first year because since elementary school i have stuck to choir and i decided to change it up this year. I love singing but ceramics is FUN!

This first piece is a 3D tile. I made the tree out of clay and the background is just an impression of leafs!

Image

Image

The next one is my pear, which is a pinch pot. It has patterns that i made in it but sadly, it exploded and was glued together 😦 so this is the SALVAGED PEAR!

Image

Image

Lastly, this is my conch shell, which is also made out of like 5 pinch pots! I had a lot of fun with this one and it is not glazed. I discovered that i do not like glaze AT ALL so it is painted with acrylic paint!

i am sorry

For the past month, i have attempted to post but it won’t let me! Invalid request keeps on popping up, so i am going to try one last time! These are nails that took me about 10 minutes to do!

1. You paint your nails a solid color of your choice

2. You take black and something that you can make dots with ( pen, bobby pin, toothpick ) You then start of with a solid line and then start to make dots and have them fade as they go down!

And you end up with : TADA!!!!
