What’s this, a blog post, let’s just pretend I was here the whole time.
I recently dyed my hair a bit darker than normal. I normally do lowlights and this time I did a full head dye. So my light blonde eyebrows really disappear this time around. Lately I’ve been using the Sephora brow builder or my elf eye brow palette in light. And while I love both those products they are a bit to light/orangey for my new hair coulor.
So I pulled out my Anastasia brow wiz which I have stopped using because it’s was VERY dried out. I had a thought that. What if I added some castor oil which is known to help hair growth and will also listen up the dried out product.
Keep reading to see how it turned out.
What you will need.
A sad paint pot.
A brush to stir (I needed up using another one to actually mix because it got really messy)
Castor oil (you can find this at the drug store near the diaretics or the rubbing alcohol)
Step one: I dipped my brush into the castor oil and dripped a bit of oil into the pot.
Step two: mix that shit up, until it turns its to a creamy/mousey texture.
Step three: clean up the sides and pack the product back in.
Looks better than new!
I almost forgot what it was like to have Anastasia brows 😍.
***my brows are never perfectly even because one of my brow bones always raises… first world problems
A friend of mine recently welcomed a little baby nephew. This weekend I got to meet the little guy and decided to paint something for him. His room theme is ocean so I figured an anchor was fitting (they also happen to be one of my favourite things to draw). I wanted to share with you a bit of the process.
The first thing I did was find a picture of an anchor on google that I liked using my iPad. Once I found one I quickly traced it out. Then I take the time to fix it up until I like the over all shape.
Then with my iPad I use a light box app to trace the anchor using my brush pen markers.
Once that was done I used my aquash water pen to fill in the banner where i would be putting his name.
Once the water colour was dry I picked a font for his name and wrote it in with a brush pen.
Eh voila! A little anchor for a little man.
Sorry I’ve been a bit MIA (what’s new, thanks for sticking around). I have a few post on the way, one is a video post I’m having trouble loading so stay tuned for that. And one I will post tomorrow!
So to keep you all entertained in the mean time I thought I would do another Instagram round up!

Once upon a time, I was 7 years old and had hair down to my bum… then I started grade 2 and I don’t know if it was my choice or my mom’s, but we chopped it all of. Then a few years pasted (like 10) and the newest look was a bob, and being the trendy person I was I went for it. Since that day I promised I would never cut my hair short again and have been trying to grow it out since then (it’s been 8 years). I have to say that my hair dresser and I have tried really hard to get my hair to where I want it. I do like my hair, and it is long, however, it is thin (thanks MOM!), and kinda just bleh. I curl it most days, either with my wand or curling iron. But it is just not what I want (obviously not Cass, you want mermaid hair).
My hair after my most recent trim.
Oh one other thing… I’m cheap, so fancy extensions are not really in my budget right now… but one thing I have been wanting to try are… wait for it… Secret Extensions.
The commercial for this is so lame and they look like they aren’t going to work, but I watched some reviews online and it didn’t seem to be the worst thing to spend 40 dollars on. The website claims to “give you thick, natural-looking volume and length in seconds!” Most reviews said the same thing, easy to put on, blended pretty well, not the best quality but not horribly noticeable. I have long hair so they blend well, and people say that if you have short hair they work well but I can’t say anything on that.
The other thing they mentioned in a few reviews was that they didn’t curl well, and I have a few things to say about that. If you take out your curling iron and expect to twist it thought and have beautiful curls you wont…. But if you do it like they tell you to do it ( curl with large barrel iron, clip curl and let cool) then it works. It’s not the most beautiful curl but it will blend with your hair enough to give you a curly look. I am still in the process of figuring out if there is a way to create beachy waves with the extensions and I will keep you posted on that.(** I found a way that works really well, tutorial to come soon)
Overall, I think they are kind worth it. I got mine at Walmart for 40$, the colour match is pretty perfect for my hair colour and they are SUPER easy to put in. They are obviously not as good as the 300$ real hair ones but if you are looking for something cheap to give you a long hair look I would recommend them.
