Whimsical Beaches

One of my favorite things in the world is New England. If I could choose three places to live, this would be in the top three. (1. New England 2. England England 3. The Deep South 4. Where I am now ....) I love the crisp air - it's hard to explain if you've never experienced it before. If you've ever woken up at 5 am, and stepped outside to let your dog out into your yard - you know the feeling. It's such a clean, pure feeling, when the dew is still wet and the sun is just rising. It's that feeling, all day long. Just pure, cleanness - and I love it. The houses are built on the smaller side and usually colonial style, and they all match with each other; just like a little post card. Besides that, the weather is never too hot, so the crisp feeling of fall stays with you all year long. Honestly, I ADORE fall. It is my all time favorite season. Chunky knits and warm colors during a crisp autumn afternoon drinking apple cider is my favorite time of ever. Seriously. I do kind of like spring time, when it's just warm enough and you drive with the windows down, and the cherry blossoms and blowing everywhere. It's nice, but it's nothing compared to autumn. I swear, if i could choose one season, I would choose this one. It lasts nay even a week, but I cherish every second I can. I pity those who don't have an autumn... or a winter.
Anyways, two days ago, I went over to a family friend's house. They just moved to our area (ish, actually like 1 hr away) and they had a house warming party. The man of their house and my father met at my father's first job, and kept in touch since. This guy was born near the ocean, so alwalys bought houses near bodies of water. This particular house was near a huge bay like marsh with boats everywhere, and swans and sand trodden paths. Their house in itself was over 1 acre of land and was very airy and modern. They had a small pool and a large deck in their backyard with bird baths and tons of trees. Right down the street though, was the bay. As I was walking towards it, It reminded me ominously of new England, how the houses were just right, and the wind blowing through my hair. And as I walked down the beach with my boat shoes and braided hair, I thought - this is meant to be.

Wavy Haired - No.

I'm on a roll! I did actually update my youtube with another video - so you can go check that out if you like :) I defintely have a lot of good tutorials planned for everyone out there. Anyways, this is about my hard to curl hair. Seriously, my hair and I have alwalys have an ongoing battle. Whether I want silky waves, or perfect ol' hollywood curls, I usually get Looks like its been fried to a frizz hair, or straight hair by the end of the night. I'm serious. This sucks. Let's start with ex. number one.
Example #1: Wavy haired mess.
Last night I decided I wanted wavy hair today. So, how do you accomplish that? I used the non heat method of braiding my hair while it was still wet and going to sleep in it. I did exactly this...
1. Spray CHI Keratin Mist into my hair so they stay strong and healthy throughout the process.
2. Braid my hair into three even, tight braids.
3. Use Aussie Flexible Hold hairspray all over the braids.
4. Wait overnight (sleep, lala)
5. Wake up and spray Suave Extra Hold Hairspray liberally on braids.
6. Mix Water and L.A. Looks Mega Hold Gel and apply all over braids.
7. Wait about 15 minutes for products to set.
8. Take braids out slowly from the bottom up.
9. Finish with more Aussie Hairspray.
FAIL! This is so much product, I swear if an animal ingested all of this, it'd die. I doubt anyone else uses as much product as I, and the result? It looked like my hair had nice waves at first. But, 10 minutes in, my hair looked fried (like I had spent too many years with a flatiron in my hands), and frizzy. That's SO not the goddess, wavy hair look I was going for.
Update: At the end of the night, my hair was perfectly pin straight again.
Example #2: Perfect Hollywood Curls - Sure.
Here, I indulge the readers in another story of my attempt at having those perfect locks. The first time I tried this, I had Selena Gomez's or Miley Cyrus's perfect curls in mind. Of course, that's never how it ends up. Here was the process...
1. Spray hair with both CHI Keratin Mist and Tresemme Heat Tamer Spray liberally while hair is damp.
2. Blow dry hair upside down.
3. Apply a hydrating milk to the ends of my hair.
4. Take out Conair 1in Curling Iron and Curl in 3 seperate layers. (Sometimes I use my Hana Flat Iron which goes up to 450 degrees...)
5. After each curl, hold the curl in your hand until it cools and pin up into pin curls.
6. After all hair is pinned, shoot curls with a cold blast from Hair Dryer and mist hair liberally with Suave Mega Hold Hairspray.
7. Wait about 15 Minutes for hair to set and spray AGAIN with Aussie Flexible Hold Hairpsray.
8. Take out Pin Curls and brush top of hair out to flatten and neaten.
9. Style to your liking.
This yet again was a FAIL!! I'd post up picture of both... but that seems not to be working out, so here are some pictures of... bubbles.

Wow! Long time no post :) I feel like so much time has passed by, its really pretty amazing! Summer has really zoomed by, I can't believe it's actually August. I do have a legit excuse to be lacking on this blog and even a little on my youtube - I"M SO BUSY! I know people actually alwalys use that as their excuse but, with going to dance camp every day, SAT prepping, Colorguard Camp, and Science Research, I have no time for dilly dallying. So, what should I write in this post? Not much has changed from school... I've met nooo new people, in fact, I've met 0 people. I literally look at neuron cells all day long, and jump and down with glee. Joking.

I have bought a LOT of new makeup, even though I'm doing project ten pan. But I think I've decided to officially abort mission. ABORT ABORT!! Well, sort of, I've only finished 2 products so far, but some products are dwindling down, a little bit.

I think I have a problem, when I know that I'll never see someone after a few weeks or days again, I dont' allow myself to get close to them, just friendly. I think it's a trust problem. That stinks for me. I think I'm really rambling, because there's nothing to talk of -sometimes I get bored of trying to be pretty and talk of makeup, and fashion. What is the po int really? Honestly, You dont even know what I'm wearing. Around people, I feel guady and clown like woth a full face of makeup and giant bangles.
