Welcome to the second post dedicated to hairdos for medium length hair (shoulder-length and shorter)!
Today I'm showing you an asymmetrical hairstyle that I loved doing and wearing. It's wavy hair on one part and dutch braid on the other! Lovely <3
The only part I did, admittedly, was the braiding since my hair is naturally wavy (exactly, no iron or any other thing was used for these photos! I love my hair); if yours isn't I suggest you to curl it with a curling iron or, which is even better, you can rug curl it (here's a good tutorial for that!). If you don't know how to dutch braid here's a video.
Here I am sharing some ideas for an updo for shoulder-length hair (well, actually when I did it my hair was a little shorter than that).
When I used to sport longer hair I loved braiding it and playing with it (see here and here), so I really missed doing anything with my shorter hair since I cut it...it's difficult to stay inspired when your hair are kinda short, you tend to always wear your hair down. So I thought to share some of the hairtyles I recently wore, hoping that you'll be inspired to play more with your short hair!
In these photos you can see a side kind-of side part victory roll (used this tutorial) with a sweet ponytail. I really liked this one, plus (excuse the gross) you can also wear this hairstyle when your hair's dirty <3
I didn't use any hairspray or gel or whatever, that's why you can see some mess. If you like your updo to look more sleek and neat just use some of your favourite hair product to keep everything in place!
If you're wondering why these photos are in black and white, it's not because I wanted them to look more stylish (?) but because I had to take them inside and they were so yellow I couldn't stand it. At least in b&w they look somewhat decent.
You may remember part 1 of "Getting to know Slovenia better". Well here's part two! Today you're admiring the fabulous Bled Lake. We went there on a day trip with my in laws and we all fell in love with that place! The weather was absolutely perfect, the sun was burning and the wind was blowing, the view was stunning, we hired a boat to visit the island and I can't describe how much we wanted to dive into the crystal clear water. What a day!
"The most recognizable symbol of the lake is the Church of the Assumption with its long and diverse history, however the lush greenery also hides other interesting island buildings, like the bell-tower, church, chaplain's house, provost's house, small hermitage and some mysterious legends. [...]
In the ancient times, polytheism prevailed in this area, which is why the island included a temple of the pagan goddess of love. After the local population was converted from paganism to Christianity in 745, they were forced to replace their goddess Živa with the Christian Virgin Mary. The ancient Slavic temple was replaced with the church consecrated to the birth of the Virgin Mary. A small Mary's chapel was also built to make locals pray to her.
The most renowned symbol of the island is the Church of the Assumption which demands a climb up the 99 stone-step staircase." [SOURCE] Into the Church you also can see the wishing bell...I even rang it :) although we don't have a photo to prove it, lol.
I certainly don't miss the hotness. In these photos I was wearing:
