Bouncy *Heatless* Curls ( Flexi Rods, Non Frizzy Results!!)

Woooooooo another heatless hair tutorial!!!! Since my last one I have been absolutely obsessed with finding new ways to curl my hair without using heat. I have actually found quite a few that work really well (stoked!!) so expect to see those in the future. I found these flexi rods in a dollar store back home when I was there for Christmas. There were 4 in each package for $1.39 each which was a great bargain since Sallys Beauty Supply charges over for ten bucks for about twelve of them. Not going to lie this is not as a simple as my heatless headband tutorial. The first couple times I tried this out it was disastrous!!!! I ended up with massively frizzy hair with no curls but I figured out a few ways to make it much easier and get better results. This is why I thought I would make a tutorial, since I know that happens to alot of people who first use them. I hope this is helpful and if anyone tries this or my other heatless curls video let me know I would love to see how it turns out :).

Welcome to 2014 ladies and maybe some gents!!!! I hope everyone had a good New Years mine was good although I find the celebration a wee bit overrated. I have a two new resolutions I would like to share with everyone and I would absolutely love to hear yours.

1. Post at least twice a week!!

I really really want to blog more, I am getting  re-obsessed with it and fashion. I have a very heavy course load this semester but I bought a awesome agenda from Chapters so I am going to schedule in time to take photos and edit each week (sounds organized eh) so two posts a week is totally totally doable. Everyone who goes to school/works and posts multiple times a week, you guys are awesome.

2. Get in shape

I am so lazy when it comes to this!! I will run occasionally but its so spaced out I never get into a good routine so I really want to have a set amount of times a week that I exercise. I missed the dreaded freshman fifteen last year when I started uni but at this year a couple of extra pounds have crept up so I have been slowly getting rid of those(I kind of want to do a video on how to eat healthy at school :)) but I need to start exercising!!

In general I think I just need to become more organized which is a definite stretch for me since I am probably the messiest, spaciest person ever, now onto the outfit!!! It was -21 when I marched my boyfriend out to take these outfit photos yesterday which is beyond cold hence the reason I am wearing gloves. I got this awesome bad hair day hat on ebay after seeing Zoella on youtube wear one and I just had to have it. I generally wear hats when my hair is not looking to clean (I hate washing it) so this just seemed perfect. I dont know how I ended up on the Bootlegger PR list but they are a incredibly nice company so I am very thankful for their generosity. For christmas they sent out $40 gift cards which shocked the crap out of me when it arrived since I had no idea it was coming. I went to the store in my city recently and I found these awesome burgandy pants that I am obsessed with. I didnt have a single pair of coloured pants (tragic I know) so it was a match made in heaven plus they fit me super well for having a flat behind, an added bonus was they were on sale for $19!! I am definitely debating going back and getting some in the other colours. I hope everyone is having a great weekend and gearing up for school, mine starts on monday bahhhhhhh!!
