And now we have reached the last 'a 10 for Inspiration' for the year 2011!
But no worries, I'm planning on continuing with the inspiration posts... since it's not just fun for me but you guys also seem to like it :D
What will you be doing on your two last days before 2012 kicks in?
After sitting for more than an hour at the hair salon on the Day of Christmas Eve, I wanted to do some me-Christmas shopping. The first store I entered was H&M (ofcourse!). It was packed, even more than usual. I don't really like shopping in a store that is so full of people, so I made my way through the store as quick as possible and grabbed a few things I really liked!! I will go back once the holidays are over.
Ring Cuffs & Leaf Ring
I love these! Love how the cuffs can be worn together, or individually. I bet these are going to be my 2 new favorite rings to wear daily.
I used to have this hair style all the time.....at home!
But it has been so fashionable lately that I can't help but love this trend.
It's so easy, it looks effortless but is definitely fashion-forward.
Because I am not good with tutorials, or anything on film for that matter (read: I hate my voice on camera), I have looked up some videos explaining the easy steps to a high messy bun. There are more than one way to a messy bun, so just follow whatever steps works best for you.
After watching both videos, I attempted the steps of a high messy bun from the second video, since I don't have a teasing hair brush. But that one didn't really work for me, so I tried the one on the first video. Instead of using a teasing brush, I did it with a fine-tooth comb (tip: works perfectly). At the back of my head I tucked big bobby pins, and in the front some smaller bobby pins. The more bobby pins you use, the less chance it has of getting loose. Don't overdo it on the bobby pins though, or use some clear ones.
It literally took me five minutes to get my hair done this way, which is super fast considering my hair is not the easiest to get in to a decent high pony tail. That's why most of the time I wear my hair back. This is such a great change from my usual hair-do. On days when I really feel like accessorizing, I'll rock this look with a cute or edgy headband, flower/bow clips or a stylish turban headband. Try rocking this look for the upcoming end-of-the-year parties!
Since moving to Holland I have been living on my own for more than a year now. And even though I finally have everything a "student" needs, I still want my 'apartment' to look feminine, but still sophisticated. So I took the time the scoop up some inspiration pictures, so I can get started on my 'room-transformation' next year!
As you can see pink is the main color in every picture, it's my favorite color. And it will forever be! My walls are pink and white, so my home decorations are mostly pink, white, black, gold or silver. I love these pictures, and can't wait to get started!!!
