How do you unwind? Lately, I’ve been taking the scenic route. Driving, coffee, and podcasts are my favourite way to get a little “me time” and discover new places to photograph. I’m sharing my favourite new spring outfit and my newest wall find!
I had so much fun doing my last YouTube hair video that I wanted to make another one! It’s been a big learning curve but I’ve enjoyed learning yet another new platform. So today I’m showing a new, quick tutorial on how to create 4 different styles with a side dutch french braid.
This week I’m sharing my first video hair tutorial! I was way out of my comfort zone in creating a YouTube video but I always find tutorials way easier to follow when you can see the flow from beginning to end.
I LOVE the Pull Through Side French Braid. I always hear people saying that they want the dutch braid hairstyle but they don’t know how to French braid. So here is your answer: this is the cheater version that yields the same look withOUT having to braid.
Nume Curling Wand
“I am only as strong as the coffee I drink and the hairspray I use.”
Long waves are cause of a lot of hair envy in the beauty world. Those soft, touchable curls are the reason I’ve been growing my hair out for the past couples years. I rarely ever wear my hair straight anymore, as I find it just looks too thin. Curls are a great way to add volume and make your hair look thicker. It also gives your overall appearance a more classy and feminine look.
Washing and drying your hair everyday is extremely damaging. I like to get a few days out of my curls, so the Nume Classic Wand has been an amazing addition to my beauty routine. I love how quickly it heats up and the short amount of time it takes to curl each strand. This wand comes in three sizes: 19mm, 25mm and 32mm. I use the 25mm barrel because my hair doesn’t hold the curl if I go any larger. Don’t worry if your curls are a bit tight, as they will gradually fall throughout the day, giving you looser waves.
Tips for achieving this wavy curl with the Nume Classic Curling Wand:
- Wash and blow dry hair.
- Start at the front, separate a 1.5″ section of hair.
- Start your curl level with your nose, wrap from the TOP DOWN and wrap AWAY from your face.
- Hold for ten seconds and release.
- Continue around until you reach the back of your head, starting at the same level and wrapping in the same direction.
- Now begin at the other side of your face and mimic the exact same thing.
- Use a bit of mousse to scrunch up your curls and then follow with hairspray.
- Voila! this stye takes me about 10 minutes to achieve and lasts for 2-3 days!

Oh New Year’s Eve. I remember when I was younger and the pressure I felt to make the absolute best plans for the end of year countdown. Now that I’m in my thirties, with two kids, my hubby and I can barely even stay awake for the countdown! So lame, I know. In our defence, it’s so hard to get a babysitter, make dinner reservations and to find taxis on December 31st, that we usually just stay home together.
This year I wanted to glam it up a bit so I braved the malls on Boxing Day for a cute outfit to wear this week. I found such great deals that I just had to share this beautiful ensemble from H&M that cost me a total of $45! I always love a good romper or blazer and I know I’ll get use out of them all year long. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I have an obsession with the colour red. There’s no better colour for the holiday season and it looks so beautiful pairs with gold accessories. Try a matching red lip and gold eyeshadow too!
Whether you are going out or staying in, have a safe New Year’s Eve and all the best in 2016! Thanks so much for reading and following along with me this year friends.
