Get The Look: Cate Blanchett’s Braided Chignon | Brit + Co
I love those tutorials where they show you how to recreate a hair style that only takes  four different pomades, 300 bobby pins and 7 arms. For some reason, my hair never looks the same as the picture, fancy that! If you can French braid (or braid if you’re like me!) and create a back comb, you can create this hairstyle. I like that it’s an updo but doesn’t feel too ‘done’, meaning if you get up earlier than me in the mornings, you could probably create this style (or something close to it!)

Golden Triangles Nail Art | Creature Comforts
Though I love all the coloured nail polishes out there, I find I always end up going with pale, neutral nail colours. I think it’s because I am terrible at painting my nails and paler colours don’t show up the dodgy marks. But pale colours can be really boring, that’s why I love this gold triangle design - it’s not too obvious but it’s still interesting. and I think even I could do this without messing it up!

Faux Updo For Short Hair | Keiko Lynn
Keiko Lynn is my beauty hero. She seems to have perfected the cat eye, always has the most amazing lipstick and she can tie a hair scarf like a fiend! Sigh. Anyway, whilst perusing her site, I came across this fantastic tutorial on how to do an updo for short hair. I kind of sadly accepted I would no longer be able to put my hair up once I cut it, but this style which combines a teased crown, bobby pins & a pretty scarf is something even I could re-create! Perfect Summer hair!

Learn To Sew | Tilly & The Buttons
I get asked a lot about sewing, but to be honest, I’m a straight stitcher kinda gal and that’s about it. As I always say though, if you don’t know, go to the experts! So I was super excited about this free series on learning to sew by Tilly & The Buttons. It covers absolutely everything from how to set up your machine to learning how to read patterns and easy sewing projects to start on.

Neon Nude Nail Art | Prudent Baby
Neon is more tame now than it’s previous incarnations (80’s and 90’s girls - I’m sure you know what I mean!) by being paired with neutrals like white, black and tan. If you’re still having flashbacks of once super cool and now super cringe-worthy all neon outfits but still want to get in on the action, this incredibly chic design will be sure to please - just a little pop of neon orange is enough to take beige from blah to wow!

Halo Braid | Fashion Magazine
Last Monday, in a fit of frustration, I cut my hair short. I don’t regret it because it actually looks pretty good (though I would not suggest cutting your own hair to anyone - mine is quite wavy which makes the choppy look work!). But then I find a ton of gorgeous braids on the internet. Of course! But that doesn’t mean I can’t share these looks with you, my fab reader. If you’re doing something special this weekend then this might be a great Spring look.

3 Winter Braids | Rags To Stitches
Every time I think I’m going to chop all my hair off in an annoyed rage I see another gorgeous long hair tutorial and change my mind. I love every one of these tutorials - they make me think of Disney princess hair (especially the third one. I’ve been seeing a lot of styles where the hair hangs over the ear, so romantic!). And yeah, I’m really digging that first bubble-ish style. Great for us ladies who aren’t great at braiding!

Pin & Curl Updo | Let’s Go Sunning
I always find these tutorials on Pintrest and the like where they say ‘this is soeasy to do, and it takes less than five seconds’. Then I try and it ends up taking half an hour and I’m running late for work and I stick my head with a bobby pin and UGH! But I tried this one this morning and I can confirm… yes you have to use about a billion pins but it looks amazing and I still got out of the house on time!
