DIY Coachella Worthy Side Braid

Okay so this is my first video….very amateur but I am learning! I don’t know how good the tutorial is but I am just excited to be doing this. Excuse my pouty faces I guess I can’t find a middle between Happy and Serious. Tell me what you think!!!

This is a perfect side-braid for a festival. As seen on Jennifer Anniston. Music: Ho Hey by THe Lumineers (available for free on itunes)

Eyeliner bookmark

Below is an eyeliner inspiration bookmark that I thought was quite interesting/helpful. Notice that most of my make-up posts consists of eyeliner tutorials this really does highlight my lack of knowledge in that area or what others would call my make-up ‘trick’.  Anyway I am currently working on a few articles/DIY to pop out before the holidays and also end my spell of ‘dry’ posts or as I like to call ‘fillers’ (posts that I think are lacking content and research.) So I hope the next few posts start to be a bit more interesting. Happy December! (I can’t believe it’s come so soon!)

Beautiful Wedding Photos!

I find these wedding  pictures of Lauren Bush and David Lauren (Ralph Lauren’s son) very inspiring. They have a romantic antique air about them and I also love  Lauren’s dress and head piece (of course designed by her father in law). You can read all about it here and also this will be featured in this month’s American Vogue issue for all of you in the states!!

My New Favorite Artist!

The Other day I went to the Courtauld Gallery in London and took advantage of my free entry being a student and all. of course I admired their prized Degas and  Manet paintings but I was also struck by this painting called Portrait of Dolly by Kees Van Dongen . Ever since I have been obsessed by this artist who was painting in “fauvist” style (french for beast),  similar to impressionism. Anyway I love how he paints modern women in contemporary 20th century dress. I will definitely try and fit this guy in to my dissertation!
