Sticks and Stones may break my Bones..

So, every now and then I'll go through these phases of wanting something. Usually they wear off after about two weeks and I'm left lusting after something else to get my paws on.

But this, this is different. This run's deep into my bones(excuse the pun) and leaves me constantly longing for more. What am I talking about?? Skull's. Bones. Skeletal figures(the dead kind) and anything along the lines of this. I am crazily mad about skull patterened anything. I will literally go onto amazon, ebay, zara, h&m, forever21 and type 'skulls' into the search bar. I don't know what it is about this eerie trend, but I fucking love it.

So, I'm going to share with you some of the things I'm lusting after.


This cardigan can be found on ebay! SCORE!

If you really love the skull trend I have a piece of advice.
1. Got to ebay.
2. Type in 'skulls' to the search bar.
3. Enjoy.

Hey everyone! I had a photoshoot in the past few days and just got some of the pictures last night. I have to say, although the photographer is absoloutly brilliant, I'm not happy with the shots. Then  again, Im never happy with my photos! I need to stop being so picky when it comes to myself.

 I dont like this one, I know there were shots when I was smiling and Id prefer one of those! :P

                                                          I love this one
 So, those are some of the shots! You can find the photograper HERE. Be sure to check out his stuff, its sweet!

Faux Side/Undercut Tutorial

Howdy all! I just filmed a tutorial for a Faux side-cut look! I love to do this look recently when I'm in a rush and don't have time to do my hair.

Typically I'll wash my hair at night, dry the roots and then leave the rest to dry naturally. In the morning, I'll style it to however I want. When I don't have time to style my hair, I'll use this little beauty. You can always throw your hair up in a bun if your in a rush, but personally I've worn that to death and am sick of looking at my hair in a knot!

                                           It is such a simple look that it hardly needs a tutorial!

This has become my go-to for times like this! Simple, funky and looks like you made an effort when in actual fact, you didn't. Got to love it!

 Here is another way you can rock it, straight with a slight wave at the ends. You can see any hair colour can wear it!
I said it in my video, but I'll say it again here. This look works best with dirty hair. The curled look is day old hair, and the straight look is 2-3 days old. As you can see the older hair looks more convincing. This also has to do with the fact that my hair is straight, and bleached to fuck so probably dead!

Either way, both looks are so simple to rock, and so handy. Enjoy!

You can find the tutorial on my channel : http://www.youtube.com/user/Athena721

Ps. Apologies for the out of focus shots, camera actin' the gimp.

What kind of curl do YOU want? Conical wand & Two prong wand.

So, It has come to my attention that I have been a terrible terrible blogger as of late. SO bad infact, I found myself wondering what button to press to start a new post.. Poor form. I have neglected this baby since starting youtube and Im ashamed of that.. I just lost my writing mojo and got caught up in the moment of making videos!

So, Im back with a peace offering. Im going to talk about curl's today. Well, two types in particular. The conical wand and the two prong wand.

The 2 prong wand:

This wand is one ive not heard much about to be honest. I youtube'd it and only found one video on how to use it. It creates messy curls that resemble the bed head 'just woke up' or 'just had sex'(naughtynaughty) look.    
I do really like this because it makes your hair look messy yet controlled, adding volume and texture as you go.
  I definetly would reccomend this to any lionesses looking for messy, imperfect, tight curls that look effortless. The babyliss wand is affordable at only  €40 and a very good product.  You can see me using it on my youtube channel which Ill link below.
This is the look the 2 prong curler will create. Its a sexy-messy kind of look and I love it. I also wanted to share my leather look skirt from H&M. Im in love.

Conical wand curler:

The conical wand is probably the most well known 'modern' curler. Its thick at the base and gets skinnier as it moves down. Ive always been a bit weary as to having this out in my room because its shape suggests something a bit more.. naughty to anyone who doesnt know what it is(ie my boyfriend- awkward first room tour :/)

Depending  on  how you use this wand, you can create a few different looks with it. You can have skinny root curls and big end curls and visa versa, straight roots to mid-lenght and curled ends or just outright curly hair. The wand is simple to use and creates beautiful looks no matter what ones you use. In keeping with the all over curly hair, Ill show you a picture of when i just went to town with the curler.

As you can see these curls are bigger and wider, Im never really too fond of my fringe when Im curling it with the conical wand because it just never seems to go right for me and the barrel seems to be too thick to do anything with such short hair.

I do love both of these wands but I have to say Ive grown to love the 2 prong wand over the conical wand. I just love how it curls my hair.

So, sorry again for not posting in so long, I hope we can still be friends??

Heres my youtube, the video should be up soon. x
