Hair Flowers


April showers bring hair flowers. ?  But actually this hairstyle is so easy & would be cute for a little girl, too. All you do is one braid! You pull out one side of the braid so it’s bigger & then roll it up & bobby pin it. Maybe I can do a quick tutorial here

Also, major life hack: I started using jumbo bobby pins & I’m never going back. They are so much stronger & I use way less of them. I always knew they existed but never took the time to actually buy some on Amazon. They are usually not sold in many stores. It only took two bobby pins to hold this hair flower up.  Do yourself a favor and buy yourself some. You’ll thank me later. 😉

Anyways, who is excited for May?! Meee! ?? May means warmer weather & the start of summer. Hooray! ?

Quick Braided Braid Tutorial ?


This braided braid is really easy, but looks so cool! 

  1. Separate your hair into 3 pieces & braid each of those sections.
  2. Pull apart each of the 3 braids for texture.
  3. Braid the 3 braids into one braid.

Easy as 1, 2, 3. Steps 2 & 3 are interchangeable. Whichever you think is easier you can do first! ?

What is everyone plans for Easter? I hope to spend it with my sweetheart & with family! What a wonderful time to celebrate. 

XOXO,

On the Docks of Aruba

 

Aruba has the bluest water I have ever beheld. These photos were taken on the dock of the private island waiting for the boat to come pick us up! The weather was so nice, warm with a light sea breeze. It never rained on us- apparently it doesn’t rain much in Aruba. There were no bugs- something I was concerned about going into our trip- especially because of Zika. But it was great!

As we were waiting for the boat, we would just sit there and look in the water. It was so clear, it was like watching Finding Nemo! You could see everything. We saw little crabs, anemones, clear fish, yellow fish, mini sword fish, bigger fish, and pelicans! It was so cool.

Also, if you haven’t noticed, I really like ruffles, which is why I am so glad that when I walked through H&M the other day, there was a ruffle theme going on. <3 My top is actually an “off the shoulder” top, but I don’t like “off the shoulder” tops, so I wear it like a normal shirt, which is fun because it makes the ruffles even bigger! I especially liked my finds down below.

XOXO,
