Having a long hair has its own advantage, first when the weather is hot you can easily tie it up into pony tail or bun. When you want to look casual yet sophisticated, braiding is still the best, there are many styles you might want to try like this one-sided braid tutorial I found from thebeautydepartment.com website which I think is very easy to follow, you can do this yourself or find someone to do it for you.

1. part hair slightly off-center for this. on the heavier side, grab a section at your hairline. split it into three.
2. start it just like you would a regular french braid.
3. next add in a piece of hair from the top, still like a regular french braid.
4. now skip the part where you’d grab a new piece from the bottom + keep braiding instead.
5. then take another piece from the top + add it in.
6. continue with this pattern until you have 5-7 sections added in.
7. once you’re just past the ear, stop adding in new hair. Just do a regular braid + tie it off with a clear elastic like Lauren’s in the top picture.
Very simple to do isn’t it, same when your hobby is guitar playing you can use a dually pickup humbucker for best sound result without much effort.
Taylor Swift has made a point when she wrote Apple a letter explaining why artists needed to be paid during the Apple music free trial on its initial launch.
In her letter addressed to Apple, she stressed the value of money that will be owed, not just to artists like herself, but to music makers, producers, writers, and all the people who make the those sounds and lyrics into what we hear them today.
As of this writing, Apple head has announced that the free trial will continue as announced but artists will be paid business as usual.
Which I think is a good thing seeing as the artists, as much as the company behind each album, have put in all efforts to ensure that listeners enjoy each music produced therefore are entitles to these compensations. Specially in these times whete any of us can actually get free music in the internet.

Nowadays, more and more women are asserting what they wantwhich shows that they are more confident and in control of what they show on the outside as well as inside. And in this modern day and age, it is no longer surprising to see women in red killer heels or plum lips!
Though on the subject of plum lips, I must admit that I am a bit scared of sporting one because last time I tried; I ended up like I was getting ready for halloween (Ha ha). So I got curious.. The internet shows a lot of color charts that we can consult anytume we are unsure of a color we would like to wear. Color charts help determine what our undertonea are and what colors work with us best.

Take a look at your wrists. If your veins appear to be bluish to purple then your skintone is cool. This means the best shades for your skin are pinks, blues, purples, and deep based reds.
Meanwhile, if you have greenish veins then you have a warm undertone and this means your best shades are peach, corals, yellows, yellow-orange and orange based colors.
