3 Quick and Easy Hairstyles

I have never been very good at doing braids or making my hair look amazing with all of these twists and turns. I found SUPER easy ways to do your hair so that it looks full and amazing.
 A pull through braid (my favourite)
Pull the top section of your hair into a ponytail leaving the bottom half of your hair down.

Then flip your ponytail and grab two sections underneath your ponytail from each side of your head (making sure to leave the middle section) and putting those two pieces into another ponytail.

So it's going to look a little something like this.

Section the top ponytail into two pieces and put them underneath the second ponytail, then secure it with an elastic band.

As you go down grab loose hair and add it into the hairstyle right before you tie the elastic band to give it a braid like affect.

Another example of the last step is this photo once you have got your four pieces bring them under the ponytail and secure all four pieces together with a elastic band.

This is how it should look when you've completed the 'braiding part'.

To do the tail of the ponytail all you have to do is split the top ponytail into two then tie it underneath the ponytail bellow and repeat.

Now all you have to do is fan out the pull through braid, I struggle with getting a full plait effect when I do just a normal braid so by doing this hairstyle it looks like I have so much volume and hair.



A Twist ponytail

Grab two pieces of hair from both sides of your head and tie them together in the middle of the back of your head.

Pull the ponytail through a gap between the loose hair and the tied hair, I did this twice to give it a nice twisted look.

Grab another two sections of hair and tie it in the back of your head right under the first twist.

Twist that section of hair just like you did the first one.

To create the twist I put my two fingers through the bottom of the two sectioned hair pieces and from there I use my two fingers to grab the ponytail and thread it through the hole I just made with my fingers.

Repeat it one more time until you have a low ponytail.


Twist bun
( I don't know what happened to this picture sorry but you get what it looks like)

 From the last hairstyle split the ponytail into two sections and plait each one.

Wrap each one around both sides of your head and pin them into place.

And then your done!

I hope you liked this blog post, I would love to see a picture if you try any of these hairstyles out so tweet, Instagram or just @ me a picture. I really wish that horrible tan line on my back would go away sooner because I have had it for around two months now and it doesn't look pretty. But I hope you don't mind seeing a line in each photo :b

Capsicum Salad | Vegan and Eco-Friendly

I have friends who are vegan and when they first decided to go vegan they were not very sure what the possibilities where to eat. I decided to make something that is relevant and can be eaten by all of my audience, whether you are vegan, gluten-free, or just eco-friendly and want to not waste water with washing up the plates, this recipe is for you!
What you will need:
1 Capsicum
a salad of your choice (without dressing)
To make the dressing
1 and a half tablespoons of white vinegar
Half a tablespoon of olive oil
Half a teaspoon of salt
A pinch of pepper
A pinch of oregano

How to make it
Start off by washing your capsicum and cutting a circle at the top of the capsicum around the stem.

Once you've taken out the stem, make sure to get out all of the seeds with a spoon.
Mix up the ingredients for the dressing and put a couple teaspoons into the bottom. Once done add the salad of your choice. Add the rest of the dressing and put the top of the capsicum on and shake so all of the dressing is mixed evenly.

Once you have done that your capsicum salad is ready to eat, once you have finished eating the salad you can eat the capsicum, easy!
Tweet me if you recreate this I'd love to know what you think of it and what salad you chose to put into it.

Unicorn Fudge | Quick & Easy

I saw this Unicorn fudge picture on Pinterest (where all great ideas come from) and thought it looked so delicious so I had to give it at go and find out what it tastes like, and oh my god it is heaven with a hint of diabetes. I feel like these could look either really appetising or they could just look like play-doe but don't judge the fudge by it's cover because this is the most delicious play-doe i've ever tasted.
What you will need:
500 grams of White chocolate chips
Purple food colouring
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
60 grams of butter
Sprinkles
Marshmallows

Method
Put baking paper in an 8X8 pan, as I don't have that I just used a container that I found. 
Place the white chocolate chips into a bowl and put the bowl on top of a pot of boiling water. 
Stir the chocolate until melted. Add as much purple food colouring as you would like, I ended up using quite a bit. 
Melt the butter and add it in with the condensed milk, mix until the melted chocolate and the butter and milk are combined.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and even it out. After all the mixture is in the pan, add sprinkles (I think I went a bit over board, whoops). Don't forget to add your marshmallows!
Pop the pan into the fridge and let it set.
Once your done you can cut it into squares and eat it!




I hope you liked this little treat, send me a photo if you decide to make this i'd love to see it. If you'd like to see more food posts let me know in the comments below and also follow me down below right at the bottom of this page :)

Kangaroo Island | My Travels

Last week I went to Kangaroo Island in Australia. Most of you who read last weeks blog post will know that I was writing it on an island, well it was KI! I stayed there for four days and really disconnected from the cyber world, literally, most areas didn't even have signal let alone wifi. So to keep myself busy I captured my time on KI with photos and a video which will be at the end of this blog post so you can watch it.  :)

 I promise you I am better a gymnastics than this I just thought it was kind of a cool photo.

 This is the iconic photo on the remarkable rocks which everyone who is anyone takes a photo at this exact spot.
 I do not know how I got up here with slippery shoes on.





 To be honest I should have taken this kind of photo on a less busy road but I managed to get the photo without getting ran over.
 This photo is on the way back from the remarkable rocks.



This is at Admirals Arch, if you get a chance to go to Admirals arch I urge you to go. Personally I think it's better than seal bay (and a lot cheaper) Admirals arch is free and you get to see seals.







 We went to a secret beach, I have no idea what it's called but it was quite popular for being a 'secret' beach. But to get there we had to go through all these rock boulders which at points were a bit of a squeeze.





 The best bit of this beach is how it has a really calm area of water and then an area that you can surf.





 This is at seal bay.







 Such a romantic seal lol.
 If you look really close there is a baby seal in amongst the sand.



 Not lying, there was no zoom on this. The kookaburra was this close.

And yes I did hold a Kookaburra and so did the other girl next to me (there was two kookaburras).
 This was the view from out rented house in American river on Kangaroo Island.
I hope you liked my little montage video, give it a like and a comment and subscribe! I hope you enjoyed this blog post and I hope you are having a great day.
