The Sock Bun

I’m obsessed with curling my hair, probably since I have naturally straight hair, so when I came across this video demonstrating how to put your hair in a sock bun to get perfect curls without heat, I was ecstatic. I finally had some time to experiment last night and tested it out.

I slightly wet my hair and rolled it upĀ  using a leg warmer, since I didn’t want to sacrifice another sock. Unfortunately, and probably due to several factors including; my hair didn’t dry all the way, the bun was very messily constructed, and that the legwarmer was too large, I did not get curls and ended up with poofy hair to the max.

However, I love the look of the sock-bun, so I just put in a large legwarmer bun and went to work. It held up until the end of the day:

Here’s the video to learn how to make the bun:

I’m going to try it out later this week with a smaller sock and try to make the bun less chaotic on the inside. It’s a little tricky to get down when you have layers.

Happy bun-ing.

Sparkle Glitter Nails

I was at CVS today and I saw a bunch of shiny, fun nail polish. I don’t paint my nails very often, and when I do, I usually stick to black. But the glitter caught my eye and I couldn’t help myself.

This brand ‘Spoiled’ by Wet n’ Wild is awesome; they are only $1.99 a pop and they have a huge assortment of colors. Next time I’m in CVS, I might just have to buy a few more fun colors.

Anyway, to get the fun white & glitter look, you need a bottle of “Correction Tape” (white) and “Trust Fund Baby” (glitter):

  • Apply a thick layer of Correction Tape and let it dry completely. (The nail polish is pretty thick, so I only needed one coat)
  • Apply 1-2 layers of Trust Fund Baby. It might take some finagling to get the glitter just right.
