How to work in the garden like a hipster hippie in hipster hippie heaven β™‘

image

Perfect weather for working in the garden. #barlowtyrie #sunlounger. Fledge sitting on the table with us. #Chihuahua honeys snuggling into my blanket. Pouring with rain but we’re cosy and dry under the veranda.

Listening to #KateRusby at the moment and #daisyrock on standby for when I’ve finished working…or a book…or some sketching…depending when my bf finishes work I may work here for a couple of hours yet πŸ™‚ Writing a new blog, writing channelled information from my #spiritguide down…he talks in images sometimes so I like to write it up in a more understable way. And reading the #happinessproject book.

Heavenly fresh rain grassy smell mixed with dog smell and a bit of #chanel no 19…so homely and cosy.

Big love #hippies and #hipsters!

ASMR/Quiet Talking bedroom chitchat from the Whispering Witch!

I am an Aspergirl, Blogger, Lightworker & Modern Mystic.

My Aspergers (a type of high functioning autism) means I’m more comfortable using the ASMR “whispered conversation” method. The mutual increased focus this initiates allows for a more intimate communication & natural connection.

My intention is to provide a unique, relaxed & informal style for viewers.

If you are new to ASMR pls give it a chance…at first it may seem odd but it’s a wonderful method of having a heart to heart “vibe”. I also recommend headphones.

I teach online energy healing, meditation & spiritual development courses, so I plan to cover related subjects as well as hobbies, reviews & personal updates.

I hope you will enjoy!

Healthy Hair Styling | Grunge Hair | Haircare | Beauty Tips | Natural Haircare | Bathtime | Up-do for Down-do | Pre-Raphaelite | Boho | Redhead | Curls | Waves | Big Hair

image

This blog is for those who don’t want to use products or heat for styling but like that grunge hair, curly hair, big hair look. I recommend my own (pretty lazy but very versatile) haircare & styling tips!

I will intersperse with pix showing various ways of understating and overstating the updo part…and the different results. Sorry about the lighting variations etc – the photos are from selfies over a period of time that I chose because I thought they gave an overall view of the results. But they’re in no particular order so I’ve captioned them.
image

As with any beauty tips it may not work the same way on other people as it does on me. So you may want to adapt it a bit – so I included my own adaptations because I use different methods on the same principle to create different styles I like.

My hair is currently shoulder length with long layers. But I used the same technique when it was tailbone length – that didn’t work so well the weight of my hair would pull it straighter at the top so I adapted my technique over time.
image

I am growing it out now but it really is thick so I plan to keep long chunky layers as I do. I think for very long hair, sleeping in a very loose french plait would be a better option – or using a french plait starting at the nape of neck and working forward. Then fastening the front and twisting the rest around it. The longer it is, the easier it gets to vary your twisting results.
image

I find if my hair is over frizzed from plaiting, over flat at the scalp from a tight bun or pony tail for dancing, or overly slippy after a deep condition with my regular henna & coconut oil treatment, it can work to take out some of the frizz or to add some volume while giving a bit of a root boost for big hair. But using no heat or hair products prevents damage and is easily adaped to a variety of  “don’t care” hair dos!
image

If you want to try it to straiten it a bit, roll in big sections. If you want more curls and volume, use small rolls. For me, 3 rolls for a less voluminous hairstyle. 5 for a big hair grunge curl effect. For differences in volume experiment with tight twists and looser ones to see how your hair responds.
image

It can be done with damp hair. It can be done while you sleep. Or you can make a hair of the day style by adding some accessories like the humble (but tres chic) hairstick for something that looks like a deliberate updo πŸ™‚

Because my hair is very think and it takes styling easily so I don’t usually damp it because it would take longer to dry. If I’m having a hot bath the steam from the bath is enough moisture to style mine at its current length. Even if it’s slightly damp when I “unravel”, I can let the residual dampness dry naturally and create a suitable boho redhead to match my style!
image

So first…work out where it’s comfortable to wear the weight of the bun. The crown is very flattering…but if you have a wall behind your bath, it won’t work well if you want a long soak!

So I keep mine forward or very high. And decorate with hairsticks, ribbons and scarves if I’m planning to wear it all day.
image

But make sure it’s at a level that provides suitable weight distribution for you (to avoid pulling and discomfort) and then use scarves and accessories to create the illusion of the shape you want.

Decide if you want to damp your hair and if you do, it’s a trial and error experiment to work out how long it will take to dry fully.
image

Also decide if you want to brush beforehand for neater waves and curls. Or leave it unbrushed before twisting for a more messy style – grunge waves and volume.

First, take a section from your fringe…it doesn’t need to be big but I use a bigger section there so that it creates large waves around my face. Whenever you make the first twist it needs to be the most stable as all the other twists will be worked around it.
image

Twist the section until it’s twisting around itself and hold it in place with a scrunchie.

Then repeat this with the rest of your hair, winding each round the first and securing it with a scrunchie whenever needed.

When its finished, its a massive updo made up of hair and scrunchies. I use black and burgundy velvet scrunchies so they blend with my hair. It gives the illusion of a bigger updo.
image

When finished…take your bath (the steam will help it set) or add accessories if you’re keeping it up for the day.

You can leave sections free on long hair that you can plait into a design over the waves afterwards too. Keeping decorative plaits around the hairline at the front is a good idea because you can use them as part of your down do later on πŸ˜€

I love… | Decorating | Being a Hippie | All Things Pink | Vegan Nutcutlets | Lana Del Rey | Laughing | Celebrating with Elvis

image

I love…being the only PreRaphaelite Fairy Princess going steady with the only Teddy Boy in the neighbourhood. Happy birthday to Elvis for midnight! Planning to celebrate with some well earned rest…if I can make him take a little break from painting. The office is coming on with a serious case of being pink as the decorating continues – see pix…going seriously vibrant with the transformation!  Hall and the living room will be darker (purple and a deeper pink). The hallway will be done at the same time because it will be either dark pink or purple. Very dramatic!

Loves of the day are: Lush Cosmetics, bubbleBath, Lana Del Rey, lemon water, Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs & vegan nut cutlets, foot massages, being a girlie hippie (bobo princess) & hanging out with my bf.

Also love the silly banter we break into when we’re doing DIY together. Usually starting with someone making a MightyBoosh quote: “Do I look like a reasonable man? Or a peppermint nightmare?” – starts a stream of messing about that ended up with me rolling on the floor in hysterics while he tried to pull my pants down and paint by bum blue!

He’s funny…silly…but damn kind and really thoughtful. So I’m dying to celebrate his birthday. I got him some great presents…and I can’t wait to see his face light up.

Better have a bath…he’ll be home soon β™‘β™‘β™‘ Yay!

Happy days hipsters! Stay free; keep smiling;  be nice to each other; & ShareTheLove

Lana Del Rey Honeymoon – first impressions x

I’m sure I wasn’t the only one waiting for my #LDR #Honeymoon to download last night! It was worth waiting for. The early release tracks gave a bit of an idea of vibe but I wasn’t sure if I would like it. I was so blown away by the dark turn when #Ultraviolence came out.

But…I love #Honeymoon! After a few listens I am already picking favourites and there isn’t a track I don’t like or think I would skip over. I think #HighByTheBeach is my favourite. So far. But love #GodKnowsITried too.

“God knows I live
God knows I died
God knows I begged
Begged, borrowed and cried
God knows I loved
God know I lied
God knows I lost
God gave me life
And God knows I tried”
