No Heat Crimping: Overnight French Braids

Standard

Hey guys! So recently I have been watching more and more hair tutorials on how to do funky things without heat. I have found such things like:

1. THE SOCK BUN METHOD

 

This is a picture of the one sockbun i did

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
So, I did this and I was really excited, since it was the firstg hair thing I tried out. I sprayed my hair with water and put it up like it shows in the picture. Sadly, in the morning, all my hair turned out to be like was tangled and knots everywhere. This is NOT one I would recommend.
 
2. SOCK CURLS!

This is a picture of my end results

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This method is thw best I have tried. I have a DIY post for this method in the DIY category. It is very, very, VERY easy, and it is super fun to do. I usually do this at least 1 time each week. I think everyone should try it, plus they hold all day!!!!
 
NOW BACK TO THE ORIGINAL PURPOSE OF THIS POST ❤
HERE IS HOW I CRIMP MY HAIR WITH FRENCH BRAIDS:
 

Sorry that it's upside down, but this is what mine turned out like 🙂

 
 
So, to start this off, you will have to have a shower. Well, when you have a shower, don’t blowdry your hair. I suggest that you let your hair air dry until it is not drenching your shirt..
After it is that dry, your going to be french braiding both sides of your hair, (you will split it in two, right behind your neck. This will insure even crimping.)
After that, try an elastic on the bottom of your hair (where ever your braid goes till) and sleep!!!
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ;)
When you wake up **yawn** your going to take your braids out (if they aren’t completely dry, blowdry them until they are) and make sure NOT TO BRUSH IT, this will cause a big afro looking style, which is not the purpose xD
Here is a link on how to french braid, if you don’t know how to already: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRhfilCsk0Y
ENJOY! (If you want maximum hold, spray a light dusting of hairspray over once you remove the braids in the morning)
 

 

Poem: My Favourite Place

Standard

Here is a poem I wrote for school. It is about the ocean, and even though I don’t live near it *AT ALL*, I still love visiting it every summer during my vacation. So, here it is! :

My favourite place,

The greatest place,

A place to run,

A place for fun,

Where the ocean is a second home,

Where the crabs cry because their all alone,

The beautiful sky was a hummingbird blue,

And the enourmous gulls sang a beautifly as they flew,

I walked through the razor sharp rocks,

Trying to reach the slippery docks,

The ocean sparkled like priceless diamonds,

I was so much more excited than my best friend Simon,

The water was ice as I jumped in,

An old, wise fish was trying to swim without a fin,

The magical sands carress my feet,

The beautiful coral makes my heart skip a beat,

As I come up for air,

I just like to stare,

At the fluffy clouds that appear to be,

everywhere,

The evening approaches quickly,

The stars leave shimmering reflections on the water,

The cool breeze whispers good-night,

But I will have no fright,

The shoreline is as dark as coal,

The rocks gigggling evil laughs as I fall,

All is well and all is right,

Because the stars give off fantasic light,

The next morning brings more fun,

With the waves banging as loud as a gun,

With the tidepools acting as happy as ever,

And the sky coloured as light as a feather,

All will be fine when I stay,

And I will NEVER. EVER,

go. away. ❤

Breaking Dawn Part 1: What I Thought

Standard

Okay, so I really, really REALLY like all the Twilight movies. I recently went to the new one, Breaking Dawn Part 1. I would rate it a 4 it of 5, because it was AMAZING, but bad at the same time. Heres why:

The reason why I liked the movie is because of their wedding. I really thought everything about it was pretty amazing. I think my favourite part about the wedding was what it looked like. I liked that at the top of the trees there were white pedals hanging over top of all the people. It was so beautiful, and the flowers matched her dress. It was great, I guess it sort of looked like my dream wedding.

But the one thing that I really didn’t like was all the gore. I won’t go into details, but lets just say there was lots of blood going on… -_-

Other than that, the movie was great, and I would love to see it again and again! 🙂

Smart Learning: How It Helps Us!

Standard

Some people (not going to name anyone) have been saying that Smart Learning is not useful, and is pretty much pointless. They say that it doesn’t matter and that they want it out of the learning system. I do not agree with this 150% because it is very useful! I think it is useful because it helps us organize our thinking by doing such things as chunking and planning our quick writes. I also enjoy Smart Learning because it gives more oppourtunities to write. I love writing and being able to write about everything from Scientific Methods to why first impressions are so important pleases me! I really don’t care what anyone else says, because I think that this is a modern, helpful way to teach us things using all the parts of our brain. Also, A/B partner talk is linked to Smart Learning, and I love it! Being able to share your ideas, hear others ideas, and talk about the class aboutthe topic is great! You get to be more involved with the students, plus the teacher gets to hear what the students opinions are/ what they feel about this topic, right away, face to face, rather than of a piece of paper. One thing I would like to say to the “unnamed people” is exactly what I was saying “FACE TO FACE” this morning…. You have no choice. You have t do this, and even though it might not be your favourite thing to do, you have to. Plus, I know one of those people (Starts with an A, ends with USTIN) cares about thw world! I respect him, and I think that he could change the world a ton, but in my opinion, fighting something that some children across the worls would die to have (education) is completely crazy!!! I hope the people this is directed to read this, and I would love to talk with you about it at school, whenever. 🙂

The Environment: Keep it Green!

Standard

I have very strong thoughts about the environment, and how people are very careless about how they treat it. Recently I have seen many things that have made me very angry around the school. To start, whenever I am walking around at luch time, there are many pieces of garabage all over the place! I think this is insane because we have people everyday being punished by picking up garabage, but should it really be something you need to be punished to do? I don’t think so because keeping the earth clean isn’t a chore, it is what we have to do, what we are RESPONSIBLE for. This is our home, where we will live for the rest of our life’s. I think that we should be able to  do “garbage duty” for bonus HCE marks. I think this is sensible because we can help the world, and not even really be rewarded. I think that if people would be doing this they would want to do it for the changing the world part, rather than the bonus marks. I hope everyone would at least consider this, because 30 minutes picking up garbage can really make a difference, especially if there are lots of people working together. Imagine if Mrs. Heitz class and our class all made groups and used our 30 minute DPA block to pick up garbage??? I know it’s cold, but the litter at the school is insane! Don’t you think its time us, students, step up to the plate and do what we should really do? Make the world a better place, and try to help others rather than themselves! Isn’t that what life is about? I do..

WE CAN ALL MAKE A CHANGE IF WE ALL WORK TOGETHER!!

Work together to make the world healthy again.

Winter: The Best Things To Do!

Standard

Winter is one of my favourite seasons because it is filled with joy, snow, Christmas, and BREAKS! Anyway, there is so much you can do on a chilly day this holiday. Here are some things I LOVE to do during Winter:

1. MAKE A SNOWMAN! (I like to take a picture of it every few hours to see how it slowly falls over XD)

2. Make hot chocolate! (During the holidays I crunch up candycane and put it in there, just for fun 🙂 )

3. Paint my nails! (I always like doing this, but there are so many Winter designs to try ❤ )

4. Watch a movie! (Getting into sweatpants, curling up with some popcorn and watching a movie while its snowing is very nice.)

5. PUTTING UP CHRISTMAS LIGHTS!! (I always like this because I get to put up an inflatable penguin we have had for 3 years now..)

6. Buying people Christmas gifts! (Even though its my money I am spending, I like it, it makes me feel happy)

7. Donate food to the food bank (I do this because we get so much during the holidays, so we should give a little as well, for the people that don’t get to do all the great things we can.)

8. Looking for the perfect tree. (This is my favourite thing to do because once the tree is in the house, it smells like pine for the whole season.)

9. BAKING COOKIES AND SWEETS! (This is a great thing to do because it is helping out around the house, but it is also a blast!)

10. Go skating! (Skating is awesome, so SKATE! XD )

11. Jam to christmas music (This is fun because it gets you in the spirit of christmas.

12. Be happy (I do this because, well, it makes Christmas much better… but then again, how can you NOT be happy during the holidays?? ;D)

Well, I know there are only 11 things on here, but this is all I got… Hopefully you agree that some of these things are good things to do, and maybe this gave you some ideas about what to do this Christmas Break! ❤
