Boho-chic

Boho-chic is made for dreamers, free-spirited and those with creative minds. Those who would rather be a flowerchild and wear flowers in their hair than diamonds around their neck. The boho-chic style queens are the obvious Vanessa Hudgens and Nicole Richie, who have effortless boho style. We were inspired by this style, see our outfits below.

Tie-Dye Fun


Who doesn't bright, colourful, tie-dye clothes? They are super fun to make and so simple. Here are three different tie-dye styles.
                                       



The Goodies you need to work your magic:
    • White cotton clothing
    • Rubber bands
    • Rubber gloves
    • Large plastic sealed bags
    • Fabric dye
    • Squirt bottles

Striped Tie-Dye
The striped style tie-dye is really easy and great to show off separate colours

1. Firstly lay your clothing flat, then start folding your piece of clothing into pleats (like making a paper fan) at the way from the top to bottom.





2. Use the rubber bands into separate parts, a couple of centimetres apart will do, but it's totally up to you.


3. Squirt the dye into each section, you can use as many colours as you like. You can go crazy with colours here. Make sure all the white bits are covered.

4. Then let the colour sit in a sealed plastic bag overnight over night (do this with all the tie-dye clothes).



Spiral Effect
This pattern is pretty cool and you can see the pattern instantly.
1. Lay your piece of clothing flat, then pinch your piece of clothing somewhere in the middle and start twisting it

2. You should end up with a twisted shape

3. Carefully place  a few rubber bands around your spiral, make sure they all intersect in the middle, start squirting colours the the sections.




Crumbled

1. Again lay your piece of clothing flat, then start gathering your clothes into random wrinkles towards the middle.


2. Make sure you have lots of wrinkle, random, folds to give the crumble effect. Then use a few rubber bands to hold it together, while you squirt the dye on.





* Rinse and Wash all your tie-dye clothes separately from your normal clothes, then hang to dry.
Have fun with tie-dying. Check out our tie-dye clothes below

Gratitude – The best of

Recently I have been seeing a viral Facebook campaign to list 3 things you are grateful for, for 7 days. We at Hunter-Rose have been practicing gratitude for years now and we think you will be seriously entertained with some of our submissions. Here is our best of gratitude list.

I am grateful for:


Sucky-inie-undies (yes, I do believe that is the technical term): Whoever invented these babies is a god send!! Having a fat day, week or year? Jump into these miracle workers and voilĂ  you'll have no more handles to love.


Lip Balm: Paw Paw Ointment and Blistex are my personal fave, but each to their own. Point is, should I happen to come across Ryan Gosling, Sonny Bill Williams, Georges St-Pierre or Ed Sheeran I would definitely try and steal a pash. Because of my obsessive balm application my puckers are always Gosling ready.

Coffee: Thank you coffee for keeping me awake at work (and therefore still employed), thank you for creating THE yummiest martinis and most of all thank you for giving me enough patience to not fly-kick every dummy I come across on a daily basis.

Dry shampoo: Flashback years ago when I purchased my first bottle of dry shampoo: As I firmly press down on the nozzle pointed directly towards my greasy roots, the magical mist sprays in slow motion onto my scalp. I kid you not, in the 5 milliseconds it took to travel from can to hair, I heard birds singing, church bells ringing and the hair gods blessing me with arguably the greatest product that the mortal world has seen.

High Heels: Heels and I have a love-hate relationship. As much as they hurt me and have walking me like a 9 month old baby, they are too pretty not to love. For 1 they give us extra height, and you all know that I could use every centimetre I'm given and just as importantly, they make our butts look cute, and who doesn't love a cute butt?

Phone: I have to admit that my phone has become an extension of my self. Do you remember the bone song; "The knee bone's connected to the thigh bone"? Well my phalanges are definitely connected to my iPhone!! I dread the day I accidentally leave my phone at home. I feel naked, I don't know what is going on in the world without access to Facebook and god forbid I find myself alone!! I'll actually have to find something to do or someone to talk to because I can’t fake ‘super busy with phone stuff’ without my phone.

Brow Kit: In between brow tints my brow kit is my saviour. It equips me with mini tools to bring me from Christina Yang (at her Burke wedding) to Cara Delevingne, need I say more! In a time when ones eyebrow game is crucial, a brow kit will kit will keep me on point on the daily.

What are you grateful for?

Love

Summer/Spring Mini bucket list


So there are the big life bucket lists, which I’m sure everyone has like skydiving or travelling. And then there are just the little things that you want to do but don’t always get around to it. Sometimes you just have to enjoy the little things in life for one day you’ll look back and realise they were actually big things. Here are a few things you can do which are pretty fun.


      1.  Make a Punch
Summer is about long nights and fruit drinks. Yum!! Why not have some friends over and make a delicious punch or vodka jelly. These drinks are dangerous because your having fun sipping a sweet beverage while you have no idea your getting really tipsy.




2. Go on a outdoor picnic
How Romantic! Pack a picnic basket with some yummy snacks and warm rug for the perfect outdoor picnic. Such a great date idea :)



3.Try a new look
We are slowly getting out of winter. YAY! Its time for a new look- something different. So might be a whole new hairstyle or maybe just a new lip colour or a new style of sunnies.



4.  Do tie-dye
Tie-Dye clothes = Awesome !
There is nothing better than having colourful clothes and being a flowerchild. So get your friends over and have tie-dying session with some fruity punch. Hunter-Rose will be doing a how to do tie-dye blog very soon, so stay tuned.




5. Print your photos
How much fun is it to look at old photos in a photo album. We take so many photo these days now but never print them anymore. There are such cool companies such as My little photo book and Picture Postie  that are really  sweet gift ideas

6. Have a slumber party
Get your girlfriends together and have a slumber party and paint your nails, put on a rom-com and pig out on junk food.  



7. Go to a outdoor movie
I have noticed more and more outdoor cinemas in Perth. Why not take advantage of the fresh air and catch a movie outdoor on some comfy bean bags and popcorn. 




8. Nail a recipe 
Find a recipe which you love and become an absolute master chef at it. This can be an amazing desert or just a yummy dinner dish. 



9. Write Thank you cards
They say the best attitude is gratitude. So why not do it the old fashion way. Buy or make some thank you cards for people who mean the world to you. 



10. Have lots and lots of frozen yogurt 
I love frozen yogurt anytime but its even better in summer. 


Love
