A FLAIR FOR HAIR(STYLES)| HAIR YOU WISH YOU HAD

So everyone has hair…apart from if your bald, then, you might as well skidaddle because you quite frankly don’t have ‘a flair for hair‘ and the ‘(styles)’ element is somewhat out of the question. 

It’s Friday… *cue arguments over exact day of the week due to different time zones and life events* which means one of two things: (1) there is a double bill of Coronation Street (2) I must write Saturday’s blog for all one of my loyal readers to bore themselves over *cries to self*.

I don’t want to die my hair. I just like the THOUGHT of it. It’s like dieting: I WANT to go on a diet, but I NEED my annual (daily) 100g Nutella helpings. 

So as I am (un)willingly writing this blog, I here vow to provide the millions of no-ones reading this fab blog (*cries*) with hairstyles to droole over. Normal. 

1.  The “blurple”-as I call it.


2.   The “Best Of Both Worlds”, as they say in the trade.

 

3.  Pink, blue, yellow, green- “Piluoween”. (<Try saying that;)) 

 

4.  A male version (ft. Continuation of beard-nice) : 

  

5.  And last but jolly not least- continuation dos(two):

 
  
And that’s a (metaphorical) wrap! Thank you to the millions of no-ones reading this fabadoo blog- I’m sure you will return…or not, but either way- THANKS FOR STOPPING BY FRIEND!

Liebster awards|BLOG TEAM UP

liebster-award1

So about three and a quarter billion years ago (a month…literally 30 days) The Girl On The Bench nominated this swanky junior account to take part in ‘The Liebster Awards’. Sounds flash right? I cannot even physically say the damn word- and no, I haven’t tried.

But basically,  I answer 11 questions, no-one reads them, and I pass a different 11 onto the next person/s…finish my sentence. But besides the joking, this is a way to bring bloggers together, so DO IT OR DIE! (But wait, it’s my go first, back off)

  1. What song best describes your life right now?

*Frantically locates iphone and destroys itunes search bar*

Initial overly-dramatic answer: See You Again- Wiz Khalifa.

Now this is not just because this Wiz guy/girl has a crazy-mc-crazersten name, as myself (Sukhi Ruparelia). Don’t even try. It is because of the STUPID S-E-V-E-N week summer holidays, meaning I haven’t seen my fellow amigos’ in d e c a d e s. And the line “i’ll tell you all about it when I see you again” seems of extraordinary relevance at this delicate point in my ever so sore life.

I would give some type of mella dramatic d e e p answer to this but the itunes charts aren’t offering me that particular option right now. Damn you Apple.

2. What’s one memory that you wish you could relive?

tumblr_lxzetbl4nz1qcbsgdo1_500_largeThe past. Welcome to dramatic central. I don’t believe in looking back at mistakes and changes you could or would of made steps to avoid; what’s done is done and there is not a thing on this earth which can change that. Learn from the mistakes made at present, learn from them now, and let them fade. Don’t dwell. It’s not going to change a thing.

*end of unpredicted and quite frankly unnecessary counselling session*

3. Nandos level of spice?

I don’t get Nandos. I never get asked how much spiciness I should allow myself. How is a girl to know. Please send help. End of examination.

4. Three things that you love about yourself

tumblr_n64uue4CJw1slpi32o1_500(1) My friends and family (yes they are part of my life, they are part of me. Leave.), (2) my ability to surprise myself (I’ll leave that open to interpretation…), and (3) my shoes…they are also a part of me. A girl has got to have her shoes.

5. If you could live the life of one fictional character who would you be?

A fictional character…like um, one of the fictional ones. Maybe a character from Eastenders. Hell, they get paid alot. *Completely dodges point of question*

But seriously…probably, I don’t know. Help.

6. Where is your happy place?

tumblr_lgut2eohst1qft4fko1_500_large

With my family/ in my bed. The two are inseparable. One simply cannot outweigh the other- except for the bed aspect.

7. What is your favourite quote?

*Frantic Google search of “inspirational quotes” returning “About 92,100,000 results”- shut up, Google.*

“You’ve got what it takes, but it will take everything you’ve got.”

Just re-read that again.

No more to say. Inspiration sh*t works- curtsy of Google enterprise.

8. Winter or Summer?

tumblr_nr1c40SsWn1re3kvuo1_500Autumn. Yeah, I went there beach. It is just SO DAMN PRETTY! And does a shed load of good for my instagram posts. Follow me- self promo achieved. *Realises the World Wide Web is a large target, backs off*.

But a combo of the summer warmth with the winter setting and snow would be nice please.

9. One piece of advice you would give your younger self?

DON’T BE AFRAID TO BE YOUSELF YOU LITTLE IDIOT. PEOPLE JUDGE YOU FOR YOU, NO MATTER WHICH ‘YOU’ YOU ARE. DON’T AVOID THE INEVITABLE.

Calm. I am Calm.

10. If you could do one thing for the rest of your life with guaranteed success what would it be?

Be in love? No? Oh, okay. Next.

11. What makes you happy in 10 words?

SONY DSC

Achieving something utterly unexpected with the benefit of other people. (BOOOOOOSH.)

A Work In Progress- Connor Franta: Review

tumblr_nqg9twr7Wp1tcf0aho1_500 (1) So. Damn. I-n-s-p-i-r-i-n-g. When you read this book- because you will – you literally will feel like you could fly to the moon in a Tesco’s carrier bag…or something. I bought the book because it was on offer in Tesco- hence the convenient Tesco reference above. I admit: it was cheap. So I bought it- relatable? No? Oh, just me then. But the point is…ITS FREAKING AMAZING! Let me expand on that…

For the deep thinkers, big dreamers, and innovative creators of the world who inspire me.

This basically is a picture-perfect, well…word-perfect summary of the WHOLE book:

  • Deep thinkers

This 212 page object will seriously make you re-evaluate your WHOLE life. There are chapters on “The Levels Of Friendship”, anxiety, his struggles to identify and accept himself and his sexuality, suppressing your inner creativity, accepting your flaws, happiness, faith…and coffee. There is literally a chapter called “COFFEE”. Completely cramped my tone. Thanks Fanta. (<Yes, that was deliberate. I know my style…*snaps fingers in Z formation*). Connor Franta- A Work In Process

  • Big dreamers

The book begins with a charming 9 page chapter called ‘In Retrospect– which, after an e-x-t-e-n-s-i-v-e Google search for the definition of the word ‘retrospect’, I concluded was a kind of ‘start to finish’ overview of his life- in retrospect. Convenient. The chapter begins with his six-year-old self, describing how his dad’s video camera looks something of “a toaster with a telescope attached”. Fascinating. Being the six-year-old spring bud that he was, Connor decided to use the telescopic toaster as a substitute person, to which he found himself “talking about nothing for an extended period of time under the presumption that I am funny”. No change there then *wink*. The whole chapter originates from this point, from the humorous-telescopic-toaster-talker to his ultimate dream- talking into a slightly less telescopic, less toaster-like object, still presuming he is funny (also, *wink*). Sky

  • Innovative creators“-

*Googles exact and precise definition of ‘innovative’* He in himself is an ‘innovative creator’ for writing the damn book. No-one in the world has ever started work, made progress with whatever it is he or she is doing, and called it what is it- a work in progress. New, original, and somehow creative. Yes, I got those words from the Google definition. emptylighthouse.com_


Thank you for reading, looking at the pictures, or whatever it was you came here for…I appreciate it! In case my somewhat O.T.T sarcasm clouded my true opinion of the book…I DAMN LOVE IT. It is a truly uplifting read; I cannot recommend this enough.

Ask yourself these questions:

I have a Facebook account; which may surprise you considering I write like a 55 year old lonely man. But every once in a while I come across some inspirational sh*t which really mucks up my already mentally unstable mind. But like I say, it’s inspirational sh*t.

So, (not) being a lonely 55 year old man, I thought I would create some inspirational sh*t…well. Google and I. We are very fond of one another…um. I felt a little more lonely when researching questions, which involved the typing of “questions to ask y…”, which I would have followed up with “yourself”, had the suggestions not been:

pictures

No suggestion for questions to “yourself”? Okay. *Creeps back to hole in ground*.

So without more-damn-a-do, lets ask questions, to yourself, to make you seriously re-contemplate your potentially already contemplated life. Yeah.

Cat-Wallpaper-Tumblr-1366x768

> Question to ask yourself number one (in your face Google- this is history, apparently)-

If this were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today? 

(the preferable answer being yes, if no, then GET A SHIFT WITH YOUR LIFE WOMEN/MAN!)

> Question two:

What matters most in my life?

(Apart from Nutella, and Joey Graceffa. Oh and Cameron Dallas. And Tyler Oakley, and Troye Sivan and the WHOLE youtube community. #TeamInternet).

> Question three:

Have I done anything lately worth remembering?

(Apart from reading this blog. Obviously. Obviously.)

>Question four:

What have I given up on?

(A friend? A goal? Reading this blog? < OI)

> Questionio five:

If I had to instill one piece of advice in a newborn baby’s mind, what advice would I give?

(*Slush warning*)

>Question se…six:

If I try to fail, and succeed, which have I done?

(Failed, obviously. Right?)

>Question seven:

What do I need to change about myself?

(Don’t say your phone, or your clothes, or your eyebrows, think DEEPER.)

>Question eight:

How many of my friends would I trust with my life?

(“With my life” being like…hanging of a cliff over a shark infested ocean, or something.)

>Question nine:

What do I want most in life?

(For me- utter happiness. *Face palm at self*)

>Question ten:

Which is worse: failing or never trying?

(Come on…DUH)


Thank you for reading this wee snippet of a blog I threw together for my millions of (non existent) viewers…I appreciate your time! I hope you now have fully re-evaluated your life and will take any necessary action…or whatever.

HOW TO: OMBRE NAILS

So you’re probably expecting some super complicated method which requires equipment with o-u-t-r-a-g-e-o-u-s-l-y long names that you can only purchase from the specialist of locations…like China, or something. Let me tell you, I got everything from Poundland. And I’m proud. *play non-existent patriotic Poundland theme tune*

All you will need (from Poundland) is:

  1. A small make-up sponge
  2. Nail varnish (duh)- 2 colours+
  3. Nails, preferably…

essie-green-nail-polish-nails-pink-Favim_com-436560

So without more-a-do, lets p…um, lets start.

STAGE UNO:

1Apply a thick white base coat. This will enable your ombre colours to be more prominent, and also mean you will need less coats of them- leaving you more time to Snapchat pictures of your swanky ‘new‘ nails to people who quite frankly couldn’t care less, but hey, they’re cool.

**WARNING: YOU MUST ENSURE YOUR WHITE BASE IS COMPLETELY DRY BEFORE MOVING ONTO STAGE TWO, OR ELSE…I SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE OUTCOME…(of smudged nails- DUN DUN DUUUUN!)**


STAGE DOS:2

Paint the make-up sponge with the 2 or more colours you want to blend together in your ombre, one immediately below the other.

(Take note: Poundland make up sponge, I repeat, POUNDLAND MAKE-UP SPONGE)


STAGE TRES:

3Align your chosen colours on the make-up sponge with your nail, so that the colour on the bottom is the colour you want at the base of your nail.

Position the sponge as if you were about to skip to step four, (don’t, that’s rude), to check you are happy with the positioning and the ratio of colouring, blue to pink, in this case. ()


STAGE CUARTO:

4

Applying a slight pressure, dab the sponge onto the nail in the position decided in step three/ stage tres.

Use continuous ‘dabbing’ motions moving the sponge very slightly- this will blend the two colours together, so don’t panic if you move the sponge from the original position at any point, as this will help the increase the gradient ()


STAGE CINCO…Y HAYA TERMINADO!

5

As it is the nails you want painted, I highly suggest you clean the perimeter of the nail with a cotton bud, to avoid looking like you have obtained some highly infectious multi-coloured disease.

And there you have it, or them in this case…OMBRE NAILS!


Thank you for reading, or even just looking at the pictures. I hope my little ‘tutorial‘ (<lord, I hate that word.) on potentially the most simple process in the entire universe helped you in some way, somehow.

MAYBELLINE NEW YORK MASTER GRAPHIC LIQUID EYELINER: REVIEW| YAY OR NAY?

So this is undeniably an eyeliner, so I can start of by saying it lines the eyes…sometimes. Its temperamental nature leaves a nice ‘bold’ INVISIBLE  line above the lashes, completely contradicting the whole nature of the product. The packaging states:

“Liquid marker eyeliner for a bold graphic look.”

Without the ‘bold graphicness‘, the eyeliner is shaping up to be the equivalent of that sold in Poundland (*POUNDLAND PROMO: EYELINERS, MASCARAS, LIPSTICKS FOR ONLY £1, ROLL UP ROLL UP*).

However, on the rare occasions that it actually decides to do its job, the result can be somewhat satisfactory. As promised, the liner ACTUALLY LINES THE DAMN EYES, providing a bold, striking black line. The sloping head shape also aids application, and allows multiple styles to be easily drawn onto the eyelid. It looks a little something (exactly) like this:

malhar_140921_0106

So once you’ve actually got some colour out of the thing, you prey it will last until you are 71 to recoup the stress of the whole damn painful process. Well good news, although it pains me to say, the line is incredibly long lasting…providing you don’t wash for the next 7 decades. Waterproof is not a nature withheld by the product, and so any moisture may provide you with a larger line than desired, and covering a lot more of your face then anticipated…

Other pros of using this product run along the lines of: its bold black colour (when it is so kind to show its face…or however you mould the expression to fit a non living object- oh lord), its flat base, its resistance to clump, and last but most certainly not least it was made in Italy. I always get excited by the thought of a guy with a 10 foot moustache ringing cowbells making eyeliner pens- normal right?

….And the final look is one of about 10,028,264,739,102,837 ways to wear this type of eyeliner, but preferably don’t follow this striking but quite frankly overpowering example:

MASTER_GRAPH_Model-Shot_665x602

(I think the emphasis is on the precision of the line, not the fact she now has a 50/50 white:black ratio eyelid…)


Thank you for reading, passing by, or for just about anything I could find to thank you for!

LETS BE FRIENDS (INTERNET LIKE) | TEAM UP

So, upon starting this magnificent specimen of a blog account (*cue huffs of sarcasm*) from the convenient location of my bedroom, I over-enthusiasticly expected 50,000 views a day and a minimum or 5,000 likes on each blog…okay slight exaggeration but guess what? IT DIDN’T HAPPEN! Funny that…

I am now (4 weeks) older and (4 weeks) wiser, and able to understand the slow pace at which life and progress happens in this world, and realise I must seek alternate approaches. Approach 1: spend 24 hours a day begging for follows (sorry if you are one of many victims I have once targeted), or more preferably, approach 2: team up with another account at a similar stage.

When I say “team up” I do not meant merging accounts because (a) that is technologically impossible and (b) I am too selfish to go half. I simply mean we support each other along our journeys to world wide international internet fame. Well almost. My idea of this would entail becoming internet acquaintances (friendship comes next, obviously), bouncing ideas of one another and growing our account together. Perhaps this would mean liking/commenting on each others blogs (to make us seem vaguely popular), and giving suggestions as to our next blog topic.

If anyone is interested, please leave a comment below or if you are the shy type, email sjasmine02@hotmail.com or contact one of the social media links situated somewhere near the location of this blog- I have no idea where hence the next to non-existent explanation.


The lack of comments is clearly due to my deletion of all previous contact, obviously (*cries to self*).

If you have, haven’t or even never will read this blog, I thank you anyway.

7 OF THE BEST THINGS MONEY CAN BUY

I would like to think I have more money than sense, however in reality I am richer in sense than money…but unfortunately for me I don’t have a lot of that either. I prefer to spend my £6.50 weekly pocket money allowance on pizza duvet covers and emoji curtains than the basic necessities of life like knickers or socks. Consequently, as a result of my binge buying, my wish list shall remain a wish list until I have acquired about £50,000 via an extensive bank robbery (-or other more socially acceptable sources), so here is: my very wished-wish list of items and objects I will never own from a pre-summer hall in spring:

*WARNING: THE FOLLOWING PHOTOGRAPHY CONTAINS PICTURES FEATURING HIGHLY ‘OBSESS-ABLE’ PRODUCTS WHICH SOME VIEWERS MAY FIND IRRESISTIBLE*

1. Sleeping with pizza: duvet covers

89e959a939e63229279e08a871e57dcd

I appreciate my introduction to this item was a tad bizarre, and may or may not have sparked a wee kink on at least one persons mind. Perhaps it would have been more socially acceptable to title this ‘Sleeping in pizza‘- although that could also be interpreted in an unintended way. To any one who owns/ or longs to own a pizza duvet cover- I applaud you. You have such extreme self control not to order 15 boxes of Dominos every time you walk into your bedroom.

If you are an obsessive pizza person, click http://www.redbubble.com/people/snkatk/works/12801207-pepperoni-pizza?p=duvet-cover.

2. Emojis in real life- i.e. emoji cushions

3459091

I realise the smiling poo emoji tops the irresistable to-buy list, however the reality of having a grinning deposit laying beside you is somewhat strange. I urge you to choose from one of the other 476 emojis to cushion-ise from your emoji keyboard; like the heart eyes emoji- or whatever you would so label it. These are a great way to brighten your room, and obtain obsessive house fans from your visitors.

To give your room a little (big) bit of colour, click http://yehaw.co.uk/emoji-cushions-super-cute-6-styles-from-7.html

3. Mixed emotions cropped top- or should I say ’emoji-tions’…(sorry)

b810f2-l-610x610-tank-top-shirt-emoji-print-crop-tops-fashion

If it is fame you crave then this is your destiny. I guarantee walking around with this attire clinging to your chest will attract a few eyes- expect screaming- as I didn’t (did) do when I came across the fabulous creation. (Also, Freshtops have such fresh tops for sale- clever name really- I highly recommend you check them out- click http://www.fresh-tops.com/.)

To become famous, click http://www.fresh-tops.com/products/emosmiles-crop-top.

4. Take a trip with emojis- the emoji backpack

dcisjl-l-610x610-bag-emoji+print-school+bag-iphone-jeans-smiley-colourful-smileys-emoji-backpack-emojis-emoji+backpack-cute-school-pack-love-sweet-white-color-brand-faces-romper-emoji+book+bag-emol

I urge you not to wear the crop top on the same day or even in the same hour as using this bag- or you may be referred to a psychologist with serious concerns of a life threatening emoji obsession. I personally cannot resist this, if I look at this beautiful contraption for much longer I’m pretty sure I will turn into an emoji bag myself. Besides the emojis, these bags are also super comfortable (or ‘comfy’ as they say on the street).

To enlarge your physical emoji collection, click http://www.shopjeen.com/products/emoji-backpack.

5. Slice sleeper- The pizza sleeping bag

Food-Inspired-Cushions_6

This may stir up a slightly awkward and really rather uncomfortable situation when you arrive for a sleepover with a 10 foot pizza topped with 3 foot detachable mushrooms and broccoli- but you ‘only live once’ apparently. Hugging a giant broccoli is apparently very relaxing- or so the picture suggests. I’m unsure how comfortable this is, but comfort will be far down the list of priorities when your sleeping in a giant slice of mixed-veg pizza.

Get your 10 foot pizza slice, click https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/96236038/plain-slice-of-pizza-sleeping-bag?ref=related-7.

6. A burger on a bed- the burger duvet

20130109-burger-duvet-full

You may have gathered by now that I am a tinkle hungry writing this post- hence the past gazillion food related objects. This is an animated version of the pizza cover- besides the fact its not pizza, and animation isn’t precisely the terminology used to describe a real life photograph (< confused yet?). This is also a slightly more socially acceptable cover for your bed, meaning you will not be urged to hop up to the nearest burger king at every glance.

To order your burger, click http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/11/burger-bedding-davidelfin_n_2273081.html.

7. A grey day- cloud light and sound system

cloud-lamp-4

This will confuse the neighbours; its not everyday you witness a glowing rain cloud floating in the next door window playing ‘Shake It Off’ by Taylor Swift. This is more of a fantasy purchase that I’m not (I am) quite crazy enough to actually buy. The price is a little offputting- hence the reason I haven’t actually looked at the price yet, or even looked for the price, so my statement is only an assumption.

To buy your singing glowing rain cloud, click http://www.richardclarkson.com/shop/cloud.

I realise it is highly unlikely I have any readers left- which is presuming I had any to begin with- after unintentionally urging them to go to every other webpage but this one. Even so I would just like to say thank you for reading- please spend responsibly (< is that off an advert?).

What I Call ‘Life Hacks’

So, you may ask why the featured image for this post is four what appear to be floating bags. You ask this either because you genuinely believe bags can levitate (which, to clarify, they cant), or you just haven’t got round to reading the conveniently named title yet. I can assure you; this blog cannot- and will not- teach you the power of levitation, or even the meaning of the word. No, if that is your destiny, youtube is a much more suitable source.

Right, now I may have lost half the readers to a levitating youtube video (that is a video on levitation, not a video which can levitate…), it may prove highly beneficial to actually get on with the damn blog, before I loose the other half via boredom inflicted death. So here goes, 6 ways to easily (and safely) hack life:

  1. Hack numero uno: The miraculously longer ponytail- with miraculously less long hair.

ohh

This is potentially a hack within a hack. You may have been hacked (<METAPHORICALLY) into thinking this is a hack to hack hair growth. Now besides the gazillion mentions of the word “hack”, I can tell you it isn’t. This hack (here we go again) is a way to imitate the look of a longer, fuller pony by creating two ponytails- a high and a low- which together create…well, a longer, fuller pony tail.

2. Hack dos: Longer lasting waves- without the longer lasting discomfort of curlers or plaits.

oh

Hacking the hack again. This may just look like a women with ocd which cannot stand curly plait nubs (), but in reality, the women most probably doesn’t have ocd, or curly plait nubs, which rules out that option. Running a straightener (or ‘flat iron’– if you are of the American type) over plaited hair crimps and curls the hair- leaving you with long lasting locks.

3. Tres: The correct way to perfume- ‘all day formula’ as the adverts say.

hhhhhheeelllooo

No hacked hack here (< tongue twister much?), just the right places to apply perfume; which makes you wonder, what are classed as the ‘wrong’ places? Feet? Belly button? They all sound credible places to me- perhaps the ‘wrong’ is the awkward moment when the scent of Justin Beiber begins arrising from between your toes. Awkward.

4. Numero cuatro: matte lipstick- without the lipstick being matted.

yesUsing eye shadow on your lips both defeats the objective of the product, and the comfort of your lips- but hey, at least your lips look matted! Applying a dab of appropriately coloured powder over lipstick conceals the shine and voila- you have made matted lipstick (and saved a few million pounds).

5. Cinco: summer dress- from a baggy t-shirt.

enhanced-buzz-4067-1383164062-10

No double wammy with the hacks- “what you see is what you get”, so to speak. It is apparently so easy, it is possible to model the process outside your own front door- or so the picture suggests. It looks great, but what is there to stop it unravelling again? I propose (metaphorically) the discreet use of a safety pin, to avoid what could be a rather embarrassing and quite frankly awkward situation.

6. Numero seis: All in one eye-liner and lash curler…for real.

ffff

So that is…”line” (the top of the lash curler), “curl” (using the lash curler), and then your’e “done” (with the last curler). This is the ultimate hacked hack of the hacks, hence its position at the end of the post, in the hope everyone will have lost interest  and left me and my all-in-last curler to be happy hacking hacks together.


If you have managed so reach this point, you are either bored beyond hope, lost from whatever webpage you originated from, or have somehow managed to enjoy my scrag of a post. Either way, I thank you.
