POLYVORE❤️

hi guys! Today I’m going to be talking about this awesome fashion/beauty/home decor/art app that is now my favourite app. I’ve become abit obssessed with it !! 💙❤️💚💜

 
So what is it ?? 

  
Its official description is its a community powered social commerce site !!  In plain language it a global style community on a free app that helps you shop and style using the latest fashion trends.  

 It is a really fun app to use and u can create cool outfits, room decor styling etc.  

 Some of you might have already been using this for awhile, the app is used by millions of users worldwide so  what I am going to do is a step by step instruction post for those who havent.  

Step 1

Download the polyvore app 

  

Step 2 

The app 

When u go into the app it will look like this:  

 

You can create an account in a number of ways, by facebook, twitter or just a polyvore user account. If u dont want an account then just go onto create a set, will explain what this is in the next few sets. 

Step 3 

Create your profile

Go into the Me section and write your  profile. This bit of down to you. This is mine 

   
 

Step 4 

What the side bar icons mean.

 On the ipad the side bar is on the left hand side, on the smart phone, the bottom. 

  
  

Trends – current trends on the app. Ie most popular. 

For example: If a skater skirt was posted and 5,000 people liked it then according  to what you have been liking it might end up in your recommened Trends. 

Feed 

Just like facebook or pintrest this is your feed of other sets that people have been posting relating to people you are following or sets/ items u have liked. This enables u discover new people to follow and items to like or buy 

Create

So this is the bit where u get to create your own “sets”. So a set means a group of objects u have grouped together for ideas/ fashion statement/ outfits to buy.  Its like a mood board but not just for home decor but for fashion. 

So how do u do it 

Go into create and u will see add item, menu and publish. Firstly go into add item 

  
  U will see thumbnails descriptions eg fashion. Make sure u scroll down to see all the other options, its not just fashion. 

I am going to create a fashion set so I clicked into tops. U will then see hundreds of tops to choose from. 

So I see a top I like, I tap the picture and an enlarged picture wity drescriptions pops up on the side including where to buy it from. It also says add which I click on and this is then added to my empty screen 

You then go on in the same way to add  other items for your set 

Be creative, I like to add quotes, all accesories to my sets like watches, iphone cases, make up and hairstyles. 
  U can also add text and magazine articles. Its fab as it gives u lots of fonts to work with.   
Once you think are finish you press publish 

  You pick which category  u publish your set into. I am choosing beauty 

You then name the set. 

  You can share it on all social media platforms. Pintrest, facebook, instagram and even wordpress!! 

Shop 

Now what makes this app cooler is that u can shop directly through it. U just click on the item u wish to buy and it transfers you to the online shop. Be careful with this as u may be able to get tje items cheaper elsewhere but if u r ok with the prices there is no doubt its a cool and easy way to shop. 

  
Step 5 

The social aspect of this app 

With this app users are able to “❤️” your set, follow your account also comment and message. If your aim is to get loads of “followers” then it is recommended you like, comment and follow lots of peoples account. 

This is an example of someone I am following , can u see the black outline heart, that is what u click on to show u liked the set. 

  
In your profile page you can keep track of your followers, who u follow, sets, likes etc.  

 
Activity section 

This shows u goals u have achieved, basically the activity on your account 

  
Mailbox 

Where all your mail is, enables u to reply from there

I hope this gets u excited to use this really cool app or helps u use it better 

Bye Ari 💙💜❤️💚

Terrific Tales Tuesday! 

 The Rabbits Foot 🐇
CHAPTER 3
A huge lion jumps up from behind him scratching Edward’s face with its extremely sharp claws. But Edward acts fast, drawing his sword and cuts the lions paw. He feels guilty so he quickly gets his medical kit out and bandages the lions paw. The lion turns round and gives Edward a purr of appreciation. He stands up to walk away but the lion follows him so now Edward has a partner who is going to help him. “I think I’ll call you Sapphire because of your sapphire blue eyes.” Again they start trekking through the jungle with only one thing on their minds… Jelly Beans! Well yes, but also to find the Lost Koh Ha Rabbit Foot!                                   It is now night time and they’re sitting down in their let’s just say ” campsite ” ( actually it’s worse than a blown up rabbit hole ) but anyway as they’re eating their canned tuna fish, yummy 😖 Edward finally breaks the silence by nearly coughing to death because he swallowed a bee the size of a tiny fingernail… What a drama queen he is! 👸 ” night night Sapphire, tomorrow another day of our long adventure ” ……..it was only just starting.

☀️ Snazzy Sunday ☀️

hi guys! This is my 3rd Snazzy Sunday and today I’m going to do a nail tutorial. This is really easy to do and you don’t need long nails or lots of different coloured nail varnish either. So Here’s How you do It! 💅💅💅💅💅💅

Its such a pain but no matter how much I try I can’t grow my nails long.  Problem is you see is that I have  a short nail bed. grrrrr!!! So it takes ages for  my nails to grow to the tip of my fingers. 

I love painting my nails but I am restricted by the designs I can do because of short nails.  So I investigated further on the web to see what tips I could find for short nails. I cant be the only one out there !! 

I found some great tips so here goes.

  1. Simple designs are easier and look better
  2. A nude nail polish makes fingers look longer. 
  3. Nail stickers are a great option but again fairly simple designs 
  4. A diamente or a stud at the base of the nail can look cute !! 
  5. A stamping plate can be great for short nails. 

There is a fab blog called http://little-nails.blogspot.co.uk and I also love to watch you tube videos on nail  art, one I like is cutepolish. Its awesome

Biggest tip with nail art is have fun and make  sure you have plenty of time to do it. It wont work if u rush it. 

Today I have done 2 designs. Hope u like them 

First one is a purple glitter ombre design 

  • First shape u r nails and apply a base coat to protect your nails 
  • I then painted my full nail with a brilliant nail polish called 1 second Gel from Bourjois. It goes on smooth and easy to use 
  • After it dried I applied a thin line on the very tips of my nail a darker purple using a toothpick or the edge of the brush 
  • When this was almost dried I applied a second coat of the first nail polish which blended the darker colour into the lighter one, causing a graduated colour. I think it looks cool.

  

Second design I did today is more an everyday design using a french manicure base and silver glitter nail polish 

  • I painted the full nail with Rimmel french manicure in French Rose
  • After this dried I used the edge of my silver nail polish brush to draw a thin line on the tip of my nails. The polish was another one of the 1 second gel from Bourgois.
  • After this dried I sealed it all with a clear top coat 

  

So even though my nails can be a pain to grow, I can still have a cool design on them !! Happy happy 😃😃

Have fun with your nails !! X

Hair Styling – Tips and Tricks 💇

Hi Guys! I love playing with and styling hair so I thought I could share my hair styling tips and tricks with you! Before we get started I would like to thank all my followers it means so much to me and if you don’t follow me after you read this go follow me and like my posts! Let’s get Started! 👍Tips! 👍.                                                                                                                                    No.1 When you are styling your or someone else’s hair always make sure it’s brushed, it will hold better and will be easier to work with. No.2 Make sure it was either washed that day or the day before as it will make it less tuggy. No.3 Practice Practice Practice is one of the best things you can do to make your hair styleS the best they can be! No.4 If you have frizzy or difficult to style hair then try some different shampoos and conditioners that minimise the frizz and also makes your hair silky and smooth.    No.5 Try new hairstyles, go on YouTube or just on the internet, pintrest is amazing too they have amazing styles that you can try.  👌Tricks!👌.                                                                                                                     No.1 Unless you are in a hurry, try and blow dry your hair always ( don’t blow dry your hair upside down as it will make your hair frizzy ). No.2 If you’re using curlers, straighteners or blow drying your hair try using heat protection spray or shampoo as it helps reduce damaged hair. No.3 One of my best tricks is using conditioner, as it helps to make your hair silky and easy to style. No.4 When styling your or someone else’s hair it is a lot easier to section your hair as when you are styling the hair you’re not using won’t get in your way. No.5 Don’t leave your hair uncut for months and months as it will start to have split ends so every 3 months to 5 months if you’re growing your hair out just get a little trim or if your wanting to go for a dramatic change to your hair then chop some off and give it to a charity. I hope you liked this blog , and have learned some great tips and tricks! If you haven’t already go and check out my other posts, leave a comment and follow me too if you like my blog!
