With celebrities like Lauren Conrad, Kate Bosworth and Demi Lovato rocking the look, it's definitely an instant way to look super sleek and elegant in minutes. It may seem a bit daunting at first but once you get the hang of it you can sport this stylish topknot whenver you want. All you need is an old sock that you can cut up! 

Step 1: Cut the toe off the sock to make a tube

Step 2: Roll the tube so it makes a bagel/donut shape.

Step 3:  Make a ponytail in your hair where you want the bun to sit

Step 4: Pull the ponytail through the middle of the sock and spread your hair around the sock

Step 5: Roll the sock down the length of your ponytail towards your head while rolling your hair around it as you go. Make sure you are covering the sock as you go along so it doesn't show. 

Step 6: When you have reached the base of your ponytail, tuck in any stray hair or ends and do a final check to make sure the sock is totally covered with your hair. And voila

Society will not be soft to you always, just because YOU are soft. You must have a strong background. Also they are not your friends. You know what they are doing to you?They are packing a gift box looking all attractive (friendship) and filled with hurt ...like Pandora's box.  Just move on. Be alone n discover more of the world. Or just make new friends.I was in a state like you some months back. Now I moved on n I have 3 best friends. That time I thought too that they r my only friends. You will not find the world until you set out for the world.

They are not your friends, really. You should leave them and move on. This might sound difficult, but being alone is better than being with an untrue friend. You'll make better friends soon, anyway. Plus, WE are here for you! :D

There not your friends!!! Tell them that you don't like them to use you. If they might just be your friends they will stop. If not try doing extracurricular activities an you will probably find friends with the same interests as youG

This is the problem... My friends that I hang out with in school keeps on calling me fat and stupid. They are my only friends so I will not betray them, but when they are in trouble, they makes me the scapegoat and blame me on everything. Everytime they drop something, they tell me to pick it up for them. Everytime when I cannot play with them due to health issues, they will tell me to trade for something, like I can't play on a day, they will ask me to help them buy drinks (with their money).
