Ladies Oaks Day

Hey everyone!

So, I’ve decided to mix things up and start a beauty category. I’m not much of a beauty fanatic and don’t wear a lot of make up (given I’m at the gym the majority of the time). However, when I do dress up, I know what matches and what doesn’t … thankfully.

Last night, I had a minor panic attack about what I was going to do with my hair; usually my best friend fixes it for me, but sadly she wasn’t available for the races event.

I searched a few DIY websites for curling hair and came across Top 10 DIY hair curls without heat I had a little bit of time to play around last night, and this is what I came up with.

The first photo isn’t overly flattering. I twisted my hair and randomly bobby-pinned it around my head, with hope it would work out. I left it in until morning. Originally, I was expecting to wake up with a massive afro, but luckily it was still pinned in place. The next step was taking it out and honestly I was afraid to see the mess I created- especially because it was race day.

Success! I took it out and found that it actually worked, who would’ve thought? But I was happy and relieved. I learnt a valuable lesson and that is to experiment with my hair.

After all the hair fuss, I started working on my makeup. Look at the difference, (excuse the duck face). I’m not one for heavy eye makeup, but on the odd occasion I don’t mind going a bit crazy.

So, after the hair and makeup, oh and finding the perfect dress- this was the final product. What do you think?


I hope you enjoyed this random beauty post. Not sure if I’ll post a lot about it as I am always at the gym and don’t have the time to get dolled up.
