Healthy lunch

My roommate made this for me! She’s the sweetest and shes such a great cook.

She cooked wholegrain pasta in a pot while she chopped up some cherry tomatoes, spinach, oregano and white onion. She poured the veggie mix into a pan along with a chunk of butter and some lemon juice. She sautéed it all and then added it into the cooked and drained pasta. Yum!

I know I didn’t include any sort of measurements in this post but don’t over think the recipe. Add as much of anything as you like!

Didn’t take that long for her to prepare and cook. Pretty easy and healthy meal to make.

How to dip-dye your hair with kool-aid

image

I was procrastinating on my homework the other night so I decided to change up my hair. Being the poor college student that I am, I can’t exactly afford fancy hair dye and stuff. So if you’re looking for a cheap way to mess with your hair… Here’s how to dip-dye your hair with kool-aid!

Step 1: Fill a pot with about an inch of water and heat until it boils.

I wanted an ombre look so the boiled dye I used on the very ends of my hair. This part will stay the longest and the color shows up the boldest.

Step 2: Add half a packet of kool-aid to the water. (Color of your choice.) Mix thoroughly.

Step 3: Pour water in a mug and let the tips of your hair sit in it for about 10 minutes. The longer your hair soaks the longer the color will last.

Step 4: Ring out your hair and let it dry. I blow dried mine. Wash the next day.

Keep reading these steps if you want more of an ombre look. I like how my hair gradually faded into a bold red.

Step 5: Mix the other half of the kool-aid packet with a few squirts of conditioner. Use a brush,  unused toothbrush or your fingers to Comb the solution through the hair you want lightly colored. Fold the pieces of your hair with aluminum foil.

Again,  the longer you leave this mixture in the longer the color will last. I recommend leaving this in for 4-8 hours. Take a nap.

Step 6: Squeeze the goo out of your hair. Blow-dry for 10 minutes on high heat.

Step 7: Rinse your hair with water if you feel it is needed.

Step 8: Style your beautiful colored hair as desired!

Easy hair

I hate it when I have to be somewhere after a long shift. My hair is usually matted down and dull looking… I just feel gross. These two products help bring my hair back to life in a snap! The volume spray on the left I bought at Ulta and I got the dry shampoo at Walmart. With my hair type, (thick, wavy) I prefer to add as much volume as possible. I flip my head upside-down and spray the volume spray generously. Then I lift up sections of my roots and spray the dry shampoo from about 6 inches away then I run I vent brush or a comb through my roots, brushing upward. Here’s the result:

This style only takes a minute or two and makes me look less rachet ;)
