Styling Neck Scarves and Life Updates

Spring Has Sprung! Or has it?
It became inordinately warm here in Edinburgh in FEBRUARY. The winter itself has been incredibly mild. I don’t think it’s ever been colder than -3 celsius. Incredible, if you ask me, but my relationship with existentialism and global warming has taken a hit as a result. Separate but related thought: one thing I’ve started doing recently is trying to use accessories to change up my outfits. I have a bit of a capsule wardrobe since I moved with only one suitcase, and I try not to spend too much money on consumerism and fast fashion. Instead of buying tons of new clothes here, I’ve bought little accessories to try to fancy up outfits, and create more outfit options to create with what I own. Even when I moved, I brought with me not one, but two neck scarves. One suitcase, two neck scarves. I love them.

Four Classic Bandana Hairstyles

Now that the whole neck scarf thing is back in a big way people are looking for more and more ways to style neck scarves. One obvious answer? Put them in your hair! Bandana styling was the OG way to style a neck scarf, and I would be lying if I said that I didn’t pull most of these styles straight out of 4 year old me’s repertoire. Still! I think there are SO many ways to put neck scarves in your hair. Adding them can really add a personal touch to your outfit, something that says you really thought about what you put on (even if it only takes a minute to do). I used a traditional style bandana in this post, but I’m on the hunt for a nice tropical print on with bright colours (pro-tip, thrift stores have a million and one neck scarves for $1 each). Brighter, bolder prints are a lot more ~in~ right now than the traditional bandana look, but I think what matters is how you style it, and the look you’re going for. Here are my four go-to, very quick and simple ways to put a Bandana in your hair.

Beauty | The Perfect Beach Waves

Hi friends! If you don’t know me – I’m Sabrina, I post blogs post and videos on all things beauty/fashion/lifestyle. Today I’m going to walk you through how I achieve one of my all-time favourite hair looks. I have long wavy (and frizzy) hair, and I’m not the kind of person who really enjoys to curl it or straighten it all the time so I’ve been on the hunt to find how I can manipulate my natural wave to be the perfect beach wave look. This is where I’m at now, what do you think?

Fashion | Effortless & Classy Every Day Casual

Hi friends! I thought I would do another OOTD post since my last one was so well received. This time I wanted to show you the kind of basic outfit I would throw on if I was going to school or just out to run errands for the day. I go for a balance between casual and preppy – think 2014 Taylor Swift New York City street style (this is what I tell myself for inspiration because I’m just a loser that way). I’d also like to call this outfit ‘the Stephanie’ as I stole about half the outfit from her (my sister) closet. Thanks Steph!
