So I’m showing you an easy way to do your french manicure (in pink and purple shades) at home. If you like the video, please like and subscribe!

Boxer braids hairstyle tutorial | Video
Boxer braids are the hairstyle of the season, and of course I had to try them. Since I’m not good with hair (or makeup for that matter) my friend Sonia did them for me, and we decided to film the whole process to show you how to do it yourself. Since the video is in Greek, I’m going to tell you that boxer braids are actually double dutch braids, and they’re very similar to the process of french braids. What you do differently is to braid your hair, by putting the strands of hair below the main strand, instead of above it like you do with french braids. You should try out, and let me know what you think.
Valentine’s Day manicure | Photo tutorial
If you want a simple, but beautiful manicure, for Valentine’s Day, you don’t have to go to a salon. You can make it yourself at home, easily, as I did mine. This is the 2nd time, I tried a similar manicure. The first one was last February (you can see it here), and I liked it so much that I wanted to do it again, by adding some glitter to the mix. I thought it would be a good idea to show you how I did mine, in case you want to try it too. Unfortunately, I didn’t have someone to take step by step photos, as we did last time with my photo tutorial, but I did the best I could, to photograph the steps myself. Most of the instructions, are written on the photos, but take a look at the captions too. The manicure looks even better if you’re wearing something like this.
How to do outline nails | manicure tutorial
A few weeks ago, I did a similar manicure, and I was asked by many of you to do a tutorial. I know it would have been much easier for you to watch a video tutorial, but honestly, I don’t know how to do one, nor I have the time and energy to experiment with videos for the time being. I’m not saying that I never will, just not now. But it’s a really easy manicure to do, even for the less experienced (like me, who is a complete amateur who learned how to do everything by simply experimenting on my nails… I’m no way an expert), so I took many pictures, in hopes that they’ll be enough to show you how I did it, step by step. Since I didn’t want to use the same colors, I tried something I wanted for a while now, inspired by this pin on Pinterest, which takes border mani a step further by adding a mat finish. Totally loved the result! I want to thank T. for taking once again pictures for me. I’ll put a short label under each photo to guide you step by step on the process.
How to get loose curls without using a curling iron
Around the end of October, I had made an outfit post in which I had loose curls, and the sweet Stephanie, from Absolutely Fuzzy, asked me for a tutorial. It took me some time to make one, because I didn’t have someone to take the photos for me, but I did the best I could to show you how it’s done. It’s actually really easy, and I’m sure many of you have tried it before….
