hair update


Here was my hair first thing this morning. Not too bad considering I woke up and the headband wasn't on my head anymore (wild sleeper much?). I had a friend tell me that it would only work with wet hair...and I think she is probably right. So if I give this a go again I will try it with wet (or at least damp) hair. In case you want to know how I did it, here is the link to the video: (copy and paste the url, or just click the highlighted link word)

Thank you Pinterest for always giving me new ideas!

Pinterest hair

Trying out the no heat curls today! Just a stretchy headband and my hair wrapped around it... I'll let ya know how it turns out. Sure would save some time if it works!

**Update: I ended up redoing my hair and sleeping on it (like you are supposed to do) because I left this hair-do in for about two hours and the curl that it had fell out in a few minutes. It was way too loose, scroll to the next post for the after picture from sleeping on it over night.

Sprucing up an outfit

I was getting dressed this morning and went to put on a scarf. Lately I have a been a little obsessed with scarves and wear them almost daily. Our winter weather has been so awkward this year and it's not quite cold enough that you need a coat...so vests &sweaters &scarves it is! I've seen all these different ways to wear scarves on Pinterest (where else) and I decided to try the bow. I couldn't decide if it was cute or not, so I sent a picture mail to my sister [the lil fashionista of the fam] &she thought it was cute! So I thought I'd share and let you decide for yourself what you think. It's growing on me! 



And one more pic just because it's fun:

Super easy and fun way to spice up the ol' wardrobe. Happy Friday!

{heart} Day.

I don't know about you, but after the holidays are over, I really want them to be over, and move on to some new decorations! The next holiday is one of my very favorites to decorate for. Valentines Day. And with a little help from Pinterest, and The Creative Crate, I was able to whip out this baby.......



So super easy, not to mention A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E!

Supplies:

1. 3 peices of scrap wood
2. Sandpaper
3. Stain, paint, and a brush. (*stain if you want)
4. ribbon, twine, or tulle

Tutorial:

1. So I'm not sure how this happened, but I had these 3 peices laying in my garage, same length, everything. Perfect. Paint them all cream/white.

2. Let that dry, and then sand em up a bit, or a lot. Stain them if you wish... I did not.

3. Then cut your lettering with a cricut, and stick the out line part of the vinyl on the wood. Paint the letters black.

4. Let them dry completely, and then take the vinyl off.

5. Sand a bit more if you wish, especially the letters.

6. Embellish.....And Ta-Da!
