Banana Smoothie


During the school holidays my friend came from Brisbane to visit me, she works at a cute little cafe and when she was at my house she made me her favourite smoothie that she makes at work.





Yummy banana smoothie
You will need:
One banana
3 scoops of ice cream
A teaspoon of cinnamon
A table spoon of honey
A splash of milk
*you can add as much honey or cinnamon to your liking.
Simply add all ingredients into a blender and blend it all up.
Now go and enjoy your yummy smoothie, it is really that easy to make.This is a wonderful smoothie for breakfast as it fills you up and is quick n easy! The cinnamon and honey make it extra yummy and adds a lot of flavour.

Also if you freeze the banana before you use it, the smoothie will be extra cool for a hot day.
Special thanks to Izzy (izzyplatt.blogspot.com) for letting me take these photos of you drinking the smoothie lol
I hope you enjoy, leave a comment below if you tried making it and let me know how it went.
Love, Zee xx

Flubber Soap

For this post I felt like getting creative and I was talking to my sister about it and she said make some flubber soap and I had no clue what flubber soap was but she showed me how to make it and what to do and I was amazed. It's pretty much soap but squishy which is so cool!




 
What you will need:
1/3 cup of corn flour (corn starch)
2 table spoons of oil
1 tablespoon of plain flour
1/4 cup of shampoo or soap (I found some hotel shampoos at home so I used them instead of my good one)
 
Sprinkle of eye shadow or blush for colour, you could also use food dye (I used blush)
 
 
 
How to make it (look at pictures below for more guidance) 
To begin add corn flour, plain flour, shampoo and blush to a bowl and mix together with a spoon, it will be a bit dry so add some of the oil. Don't add all the oil at once as you might not need it all.
Then keep combining until it comes together. Gather it in your hands and roll into a bowl, it will be quite sticky but it should eventually roll into a ball that isn't sticky. If it continues to stick to your hands just simply sprinkle some plain flour onto the bench and knead the flubber soap through it.
 
 
Add corn flour to bowl.
 
Add shampoo and colour. 
                                                  
Mix well.
 
 
I then decided to make some green, by using food dye for colour not blush or eye shadow and just normal soap (which happened to be green aswell) 
 
 
 
 
And this is what the finishing product should look like, kinda like playdough.
To use it just grab a little ball of it and run under the water with your hands and rub them together to wash.
 
 
 
This is a fun and quick activity to do on the weekend with your friends, or even little kids.

3 favourite hairstyles at the moment

Sorry it has been awhile since my last post, at the moment it is school holidays and what I was hoping to do was to be writing blog post for further weeks but that hasn't happened as I've been very busy with friends and family these holidays. I also got my first job! Its at a cosmetic store, so it sells a lot of makeup, fragrances, skincare & hair products and also some clothing. I have already worked 3 shifts and to begin with I was very nervous but no I love it so much! Anyway over these holidays I have became very fond of these hairstyles below so I thought, why not blog about them you know? two of the hairstyles involve a dutch braid, a dutch braid is like a French braid but instead of braiding over the top, braid under, if you are having trouble there are many tutorials on YouTube that can help

First is a half up-do top knot
 
To begin simply gather the top half of your hair into a high ponytail (Like in the picture below)
Then tug at the hair that's in a pony tail to add volume. Twist ponytail around into a bun and secure with a hair elastic and bobby pins.




The next look I have been wearing quite frequently is these two little braids that are good for school, work, weekends and any day really as your hair is still down but just out of your face.
 
Part the hair in the middle, and simply start dutch braiding one side from the top of the hairline, stop the braid when you get to the crown and simply secure with an elastic at the crown or just continue a normal braid the secure.






Last but not least is two braids again.. To begin part the hair in the middle and split into two even sections, dutch braid each side and instead of braiding/plaiting the end secure the elastic just at the neck
 
 




So here are my favourite hairstyles at the moment, For the braids I did it the Dutch style, so it pops out and has the 3D effect which I prefer but you can easily just do a normal French braid.
Thanks for reading, please comment :))
