Album of the Week: Ministry of Sound One R n B

Okay, so incase you haven't noticed a trend here I Love (with a capital L) most CDs that are ministry of sound related.

This new edition which came out last month contains three CD's with number one's within the r'n'b world. The three CD's contain songs from the 2000s, 1990s and the 1980s (I hope I am correct in saying this although it could be 2010s, 2000s and 1990s - who knows).

CD one:
Favourite song - Literally too many to choose from maybe Earthquake - Labrinth and Tinie Tempah.
Least favourite song- I need a dollar - Aloe Blacc, but not because I don't like the song I just don't like this particular remix.

CD two:
Favourite song - Moving too fast - Artful dodger, completely love this song and had forgotten all about it
Least favourite song - She wolf - Shakira, don't think it belongs in the r'n'b song style myself?

CD three:
Favourite song - Don't let go - En vogue, how can anyone not completely love this song?
Least favourite song - Ginuwine - Pony.

Literally can't stop blasting this when having a drive in my car !
What are your favourite songs?

Swedish Girl Hair

Sorry for not posting as of recent but I have been ultra busy finishing all my essays for my second year of uni and now they are all done yay !!
Can't believe I am nearly a third year student, it's so scary.
And with only 2 exams to go at the end of this month I have plenty of time to catch up on blogging, yay for you !!

So I was inspired by Nicole Richie, my favourite fashionista and her GORGEOUS hair,

Now unfortunately I am not blessed with thick long hair, so I had to adjust this style so it would actually suit me.
I tried to make the back pretty but it simply didn't work, boo hoo !

So anyway, what I did to achieve my look was split my hair first of all into two sections, dividing it symmetrically down the back of my head from my parting.

Next I took a thin comb and split my hair from the top of my ear upwards at a slight angle to get the hair that would come before the wrap around plaits, and I did this on both sides of my head. Then I tied this up so it would not get in the way.

The final two sections left at the bottom I put into plaits which made me look very much like Lolita haha, and tied these with little rubber bands which are £1 for a pack of about 100 from Primark.

After doing this I let my two front sections down and brought the plaits up to make a sort of headband and secured with bobby pins, when securing I tried to hide the rubber bands (unfortunately mine were white and very noticeable) underneath the opposite plait.
And ta-daaaaa !

P.S. Starting up my jewellery line again VERY VERY soon, just waiting for all my crafts to come so I can begin hand-making some beauties again, so keep your eyes peeled :)
