I'm delighted that so many of you enjoyed February's round-up of my favourite beauty tips, gadgets and things that we love to love, and hopefully you'll feel the same about the month of March's selection ..............
EASY TO ACHIEVE WAVY HAIR
Top of my favourites has to be this really simple to do hairstyle which I have tried and absolutely adore. This is the how to get gorgeous waves in just 15 minutes.
- Section your hair into 5 to 10 large sections.
- Braid each section in a loose braid / plait.
- Run a flatiron / hair straightener over each braid / plait.
- Let your hair cool down.
- Spray your hair with hairspray and let it dry.
- Now undo your braids / plaits and voila beautiful easy gorgeous waves.
TIME TO TURN YOUR ATTENTION TO YOUR NAILS
- Want to Dress to Impress: Start With Your Hands
Here is a really good HubPage written by Force who is based in Colorado, fabulous advice on how to care for your hands and get them looking superb.
And once your hands are looking suitably gorgeous then you can start thinking about nail designs, there are so many out on the web but here are a few that caught my eye and I hope you enjoy.
- Leopard Print Nails Tutorial by hiphopsideproject
I absolutely adore this look and on the link you'll find an easy to follow tutorial.
- The Manicured Monkey: Happy St. Patrick's Day Mani!
Such a talented lady providing us with a sensational St. Patrick's Day look.
- Lily Nails & Beauty, Northampton
Don't forget your tootsies ladies ......... try Shellac a new and innovative hypo-allergenic and 3-Free power polish, leaving a brilliantly shiny finish with maintenance-free wear for up to 14 days*.
These are just a few of the fabulous designs available out there in the web, if you find any you think I'll like please send me a message in the Comments Section below.
RETRO EYE MAKE-UP
- Go Retro!: Search results for eye makeup
Here is a fabulous little website about all things Retro and for all those ladies out there that want the Bridget Bardo look here is a range of 1920s eye make-up for you.
I recently went to see the new film John Carter, fabulous effects but what really stood out for me was the lead actress, Dejah Thoris played by Lynn Collins, and her fabulous body art as can be seen above. Tattoos are so varied that you're bound to find something to take your fancy, the above are very linear in design whereas the photo below is more organic and fantasy in nature, with so much variety available you can match your outfits and the occasion appropriately.
- Grant's World HubPages; Lower Back Temporary Tattoos online
I think temporary tattoos are a great way of achieving an up-to-the-minute look and changing it as when mood takes you, and are readily available online, please see the link to one of my fellow Hubbers, Grant's World, for more details.
COMFORTABLE EASY-TO-WEAR CLOTHING SELECTION
My favourite clothing has to be my most comfortable, don't you always feel better and therefore look better when you're relaxed, nothing worse than uncomfortable high heeled shoes and tight skirts that keep riding up, give me my favourite denim jeans any time - if you're of the same mind you might be interested in these two gorgeous selections devised and arranged on the Polydore website.
- capri jeans - Polyvore
A fashion look from March 2012 featuring CALYPSO ST. BARTH t-shirts, True Religion jeans and Ash sandals.
- Striped Cardigan - Polyvore
A fashion look from February 2012 featuring INHABIT tops, 7 For All Mankind jeans and Miss Me sandals.
And once more from the Polyvore website (see links above) a complete fashion look from March 2012 featuring Madewell tops, Elizabeth and James blazers and Helmut Lang jeans, which I think is just stunning:
FAB COWBOY BOOTS
And finally for something to wear with those gorgeous favourite jeans or a cute dress or outfit - tip for the coming months, you don't have to be a cowboy to wear Cowboy Boots.
And these vintage cowboy boots below have been recoloured and brought right up-to-date - gorgeous aren't they!
OR .......... if you're looking for something a bit more casual for running around in - these should do the job beautifully - so cute!
Thank you all for looking and if you want me to include anything for next month please leave a message in the Comments below.
