How to do a milkmaid braid in 5 minutes

I love throwing my hair up into a milkmaid braid. It's one of those bad hair day tricks that looks difficult but takes minutes to achieve.

Here's my recipe:
1. Divide your hair into 2 sections, part down the middle.
2. Braid both into 2 loose braids. I like to braid mine under for a Dutch style braid, but it makes no difference.
3. Pull one braid over to the other ear and secure with a bobby pin.
4. Pull the second braid over the first one pulling the ends towards the back of head. Secure with a bobby pin.
5. Tuck in your ends under each braid and secure.
6. Add more pins if it feels loose and hairspray.

That's all there's to it!

Fashion House Missoni to Design First Condo Bldg in the World

Two companies from opposite ends of the world, both rooted on the same foundations of a rich history, respect for family values and a culture of passion, creativity and quality, have forged a partnership for a one of a kind condominium development in Asia.

Century Properties, the Philippine’s foremost developer of luxury real estate, officially announced its collaboration with Missoni Home, the global Italian fashion and design brand, for a project that the former plans to build in Manila.

Missoni Home will create the interiors and amenity spaces of the new Century project, making it the first residential development by Missoni Home in the world. The firm’s Managing Directors Marco and Robbie Antonio are yet to announce the development’s name but confirmed that it is a residential building.
