Curling your hair with flat Iron

Hey guys,

How was your Christmas? I hope you had a good time and received a lot of lovely pressies. I bet you all looked fabulous and will look even more this NYE.  Recently I have been pretty obsessed with having lovely big curls,  they take me back in time and I feel like I’m living in the 50’s.  I found an easy way to curl your hair by using a normal flat iron on youtube and I want to show you how to do it yourselves.



 Curling your hair with a flat iron

Step 1: Wash your hair and slightly dry most of it

1Step 2: Before drying your hair completely, apply some heat protection cream on the tip of your hair, were it basically needs the most.  I used the Tresemme,  Thermal Sensations blow dry potions.


Step 3: Dry completely your hair, and straighten it a little bit. It doesn’t have to be perfect, you will be curling it right after so don’t spend to much time on it.


Step 4: Grab a 1 inch piece of hair and start curling it by twisting the iron inwards and pulling it downwards slowly. I do suggest you watch the video for further help. The first time I tried this technique they curls didn’t stay on for long because I didn’t give it enough heat. So make sure you pull the iron downwards slowly, but not too slow that you end up having your hair straightened rather than curled.


Step 5: Basically do the same technique for the rest of your hair, and then retouch where you think is needed. Then I like to slightly brush the curls so they look more natural and with more volume.


There are many other ways to curl your air, from the traditional rollers, to the most conventional technology curling iron.  Always make sure to use heat protection before curling your hair if your using a a straightener or curling iron.

I hope you enjoyed my short tutorial, if you need further help feel free to comment down below, a few days left to enter my Giveaway 😀




MAC Retro Matte – Ruby Woo Lipstick

Nothing can explain my love for this particular lipstick. No review can give justice to such a lipstick. Yes I am falling in love with a lipstick, I might sound crazy but you have to give it a shot to test how good it is.


Well I bought the Ruby woo because recently I have heard a lot about it, being that it is very similar to the Lipstick Rihanna launched with MAC, called Riri Woo. I couldn’t find a good price for Riri woo but I did find a good price for Ruby woo, so I got it. I tested it out about a month ago, as I went for some drinks with my girls. I drank, I eat, and I drank some more an this lipstick stayed put all night. I was so impressed, I never had a lipstick which I didn’t have to reapply in a few hours. It stayed put for over 5 hrs If I recall so that is definitely a 5 star when it comes to longevity. It also doesn’t stain the teeth as it happens with most red lipsticks, and I even noticed it doesn’t stain glasses, when I drink.


The colour is a gorgeous red matte lipstick, it doesn’t have an orange tint like most red lipsticks, it is just perfectly matte red. It reminds me of how it was back in the 50’s, I felt like I was channeling my inner Marilyn Monroe. 🙂 Of course the pigmentation is just divine but unfortunately it can be a little bit drying on the lips, so for winter you definitely need to wear a lip balm underneath.


Apart from the colour, I love M.A.C lipstick packaging, being in one of my favorite colour, Black. I also can’t get enough of the lovely smell all M.A.C lipsticks have. If you love red lipsticks, this is definitely a lipstick you have to have.

Well that all for now, I think I shared enough love for this lipstick :P. What do you think about this gorgeous lipstick ? Have you ever tried it?
