Twist it up

12 Sep

Hello Glamourites,

It’s the end of summer and everyone is slowly getting back to reality with normal school/work routines. I know for me this can sometimes mean I’m feeling a bit rushed or even a tad lazy as I try to get used to the fall routine again. This is why braids are the best hairstyle. There are countless different looks and styles that you can create that won’t take too much time out of your morning. I have only experimented with a few, but there are so many pictures out there that I still want to try. Here are a few that I find straightforward to do, but it will still give you a fun and put together look!

French Braid Hybrid    ~ Start by french braiding your hair, then switch to a normal braid for two turns, then French braid again. Alternate between the two braids until you reach the end of your hair. Thanks Byrdie for the pic!

Connect The Braids   ~ This is good for when you wake up and don’t have that extra time to shower and get your hair clean and silky.  Braid a piece from each side of your head, stop where they meet in the back, and tie them together.

SideBraid

Side Braid    ~ Start to french braid from the bang section down, keeping it as close to your face as possible. Continue to add small sections to your braid until you reach your neck, then add the rest of your hair into the three sections evenly. Most important is the last step which is to loosen the braid! Thanks Treasures & Travel!

Braid Crown    ~ My FAVOURITE. You can choose how much hair you want left hanging or put it all up. You can do any size of braid and it is such a statement look.

Put it up

Hello Glamourites,

It’s friday! That means you have no reason to not be happy today, okay unless you work weekends, but I still hope you all have some fun things planned. During the winter season I find I get really bored with my hair and it’s gets hard to style because as soon as I get outside it’s wrecked from the snow or my toque. I’ve tried new ways of putting my hair up in a ponytail or braid and adding my own twist on the look. Here are some inspiration pictures I’ve used and some new ones I will be attempting to try. Let me know what your “go to” hair do is!

Add some drama to the ordinary pony by teasing the hair like crazy!throwitup

This is a half fishtail braid which is quick to do and leaves some hair hanging if you don’t want it all up.

The classic ponytail with a statement accessory; I still need to find something like this!

Start with a side braid bringing it to the back and into a loose bun for a casual errand day.

Don’t think you have to pull out the straightener and blow dryer to prep for your early meeting; put your hair in a low bun that still looks professional.

Dreaming in White

Hi Glamourites,

Recently as the weather has started to improve (here in Ontario that has meant going into the positives instead of negatives), all I have been able to think of is when I can start pulling out my spring wardrobe! Here are some pieces that I hope to purchase and take inspiration from. Hope everyone is enjoying some spring weather xx Glamour Planner

Hi Glamourites,

Obviously I am struggling to get readjusted to this whole school routine thing again; not used to requiring an attention span for longer than an hour listening to lectures! Needless to say, I have felt very uninspired and seem to be lacking in energy to write any posts. I am determined to make that change and commit more time to the blog and my own creative research. Here are  some pictures I saw last week, as well as a few more that I found today. Perhaps they will get me excited for the fall days ahead! Enjoy xx Glamour Planner

Okay I’m not excited for the cold fall days but this sweater makes me come to terms with it. Love the two tone colours!

The simple lines within the heel straps are very eye catching while still casual enough to wear with jeans.

It’s a risk to try opposite direction stripes in one outfit but when pulled off, it’s a success!

Black and white two faced pants…I’d say these are pretty awesome. 84c2fd6b4e44bf24d840a4920f68f0ea

Scarves are a must have for this upcoming season and I love all the colours as well as line thicknesses in this scarf making it fun! 2e17a4fcacb6a7debeec91789b7c7dfc
