Honey and Olive Oil

Honey, honey and more honey! Honey has been a life saviour for me through skin care and hair care, it has become a beneficial product for me, it affordable and contains many properties such as:

  • Antibacterial
  • Anti- Inflammatory
  • Prevents hair loss
  • Smooths and tames frizz
  • Full of antioxidants
  • Allows hair to become more moisturised
  • and many more, as the list goes on and on

Honey and Olive Oil Hair Mask:

  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil

You can reduce or increase to your desired amount. The amount above is for medium to long hair, but as I said you can reduce or increase to the length of your hair. I use this hair mask before and during winter, as this when my hair becomes dry and brittle to the harsh weather.

Mix the honey and oil in a bowl and apply to your hair, cover with plastic bag and leave for 30 minutes or more. Wash hair and enjoy! 🙂


Silica Cosplay..?

I have news!! After contemplating months after months, I have finally decided to do this cosplay!! The cosplay I’m doing is Silica from Sword Art Online. I have rough sketches and ideas on how to bring life into this cosplay with the help of Atashi, she is also a blogger, who has truly inspired me. She has been giving me ideas and tips how to make it, and I am truly grateful for it. I know this will be a challenge to make from scratch but I have finally decided that I will do it.

Cosplay Preparation

The top blazer and the bottom blazer are a true red colour, which a brighter shade of red compared to the anime. I couldn’t find poplin in the shade of true red so I went with tomato:  http://www.lincraft.com.au/polypop-1. I purchased 3.5 metres of poplin. I also purchased a pair of Ansell white gloves for $ 1:50, which have also added into the dye bath.

I made a red halter top a few years ago, unfortunately I do not have pictures of the progress but, I will be dying this with Rit Liquid Dye “BLACK”

UPDATE: Dying the dark coloured red into true red, wasn’t really a success, it was tad brighter but was not the colour I was looking for.


Banana, Oils and Honey Hair Mask

Bananas are great to eat, but they’re also good for hair mask as they’re rich in vitamins, and allow your hair to be moisturised. Honey does great wonders for your hair, as it strengthens your hair follicles, which promotes hair growth. It prevents scalp infections due to its antibacterial properties. It also locks in moistures and allows your hair the be shiny and healthy, especially during those cold winter months.

  • 1 Large Banana
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon of macadamia oil
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of honey

Oils listed above, do not need to be added, but will provide extra shine and nutrients to your hair. The oils are listed to show a variety of different oils you can use, but you are welcome to use other oils.

Cut up your banana into smaller pieces. Use either a blender or food processor, and add in all ingredients, you can add a bit of water so it blends smoothly. Blend into a smooth consistency. Make sure there are no banana chunks, as this can make rinsing you hair a difficult process. Pour the banana mixture into a bowl, and apply to damp hair. Cover and tie up hair for 30 minutes or an hour. Wash out your hair and enjoy! 🙂
