Garnier Curl Treat Hair Cream | Review

Thursday, August 29, 2019

Curls for days. It is not a phrase I often say but lately, I've noticed that my curls now look better and curlier even on day three or four. 

As a curly hair girl, I've always had a hard time trying to get my hair to look like how it is supposed to. Most often then not my hair would end up really oily because of the leave-in products and limp. But this time things have been different. 

Lately, I've been using Garnier's new Curl Treat product and have noticed quite a difference in my life. What is my current secret to having curly, soft hair? Garnier's new leave-in conditioner! 

How to Ace your First Year of University | Tips + Advice

Tips and advice for university students

Summer is coming to an end and so that means that for those of us still continuing our education, the school year will be starting anew.

As a child, this time of year was full of trepidation and excitement. By mid-august, I was bored of doing nothing useful and so going back to school would mean new challenges, while at the same time going back meant that I would probably not be in the same class as my friends or having a not-so-great teacher. It'd be great to say that my mentality has changed but in reality, I still feel those same emotions I felt as a child, especially in my first week of university.

Like I've mentioned before, in April I finished my first year of post-secondary school. When my last class was over and my last essay handed in, I could not believe how fast the year had gone by. To be honest, and somewhat cheesy, I felt like I was not the same person that I was back when I started in September, and I feel that I took advantage of what my school had to offer that first year.
So now that I'm starting my second year I wanted to share some tips on how to ace (or at least do extremely well) in your first year of uni.

Hair Scrunchies Tutorial | Easy DIY

An easy and simple diy on how to make a hair scrunchie by Plaid and SUgar
Love them or hate them, scrunchies are back!

As I child I never understood the dislike for scrunchies. They were always colourful, hard to lose and gentle on my curly hair, unlike other bands. Yes. they were a big part of the 80s-90s culture, and yes they look weird at times but they were much easier to wear than just simple hair bands. So when they made their comeback last year (I think), I welcomed them with open arms.
Now that the scrunchie has officially made a comeback I realized that they could be used as accessory statement pieces and I wanted to try my hand at making some that would match my outfit.

And so I did.
