What I Wore 11-30-11

Could December really be less than 24 hours away? This month has gone by so quickly, and I didn't post much at all! The weather tells me it's possible. Let me tell you- walking home from my bus stop was no fun. At all. My coat kept blowing up and my poor knees were freezing. That was some powerful wind, my friends.With Christmas comming so quickly, I have had my mind spinning, thinking what to do with the blog. I am hoping to get a music playlist up and share some fun nail designs and outfits along with family traditions too-yes?I will not be making an attempt to go bare-kneed for a while. Consider this my lesson learned. Tomorrow you can bet I will be nice and warm. And Christmas-y.

What I Wore 11-28-11

I felt a very strong need to put in my blue hair- fake, of course. Yesterday school started up again and I am not going to lie. It felt good. I am going to miss my free time and no homework, but it was nice to walk the school runway ;) Besides, Christmas break is in what, three weeks? Piece. Of. Cake.
Aren't these vintage clip-ons so cute? Even though they are uncomfortable, they are so worth it.

What I Wore 11-26-11

Red lipstick. It is such a hassle! From now on, it is only coming on for special occasions. Or until I forget how high-mantenance it is!

Don't all of the christmas decorations out make you happy?! I just love it so much! The past few months have gone by so fast and it makes me sad to think that Christmas will be here and gone so soon! Listen to me. It isn't even December and I miss Christmas-time already. I am making a list of activities my family must do:

  • outdoor iceskating

  • gingerbread houses

  • christmas play

  • festival of trees

  • sledding

So I don't have much yet. I would love to hear some ideas, so please leave comments!

Hope everyone is enjoying their Thanksgiving break! I'm definitely spending time researching exercizes and good foods-and then putting this information to good use!

This week is going to be pink. Something clicked in my brain and I am going on pink overload. lovers: Stick around to see some fun outfits! To those of you who don't love pink so much: You will either learn to love it or have to be patient with me.

Hair Bow Tutorial!

I figured it was time for me to share my secret on how to style a hair bow. And I had nothing else to do at 5:30 am. My bizzare sleeping habbits have led to something productive!

What you need:

  • brush

  • bobby pins

  • hairspray

  • one or two ponytails.

Lets begin!

  1. Tie your hair off into a high ponytail- Where your pony is tied off will become the center of your bow so really get it up there! It helps if you flip your head upsidedown. Hairspray.

2. Put in another ponytail but this time leave a tail- You can combine the first two steps, but I like to use two for extra hold. If you have layers like mine, make sure to keep the tail fairly long. This will be important later. Hairspray.

3. Pull apart the bun into a fan-type-thing - Bobby pin the ends. Hairspray.

4. Add more bobby pins to the bottom and don't forget the back! The back is always something I seem to forget. Hairspray!

5. Seperate the fan in two equal sections- Be careful and make sure the sides are even. You don't want a lopsided bow! Hairspray.

6. Take the tail and wrap it over your two sections of hair- For girls with layers, this will be the most frustrating part. A tip that helps is to hairspray and twist it before you pull it over the rest of your hair. Bobbypin and hairspray.

7. Keep adding hairspray and pinning your hair back- This can take some time if you want to perfect it, so just be patient! Fiddle around with your bow until you are happy with the outcome. More hairspray!

Finished! Hairbows are fun, easy, and impressive if you have the time to master them! It really does take practice, so don't give up on your first try! I hope this helped some lovely ladies out there! You can see examples of me wearing my hair bow: Here, here, and here!

What I Wore 11-11-11!

Have you guys started planning your wish for tonight? I haven't. I am totally still planning it out. Do I want to wish for great estate sale finds tommorrow? Or do I want to wish for something more along the lines of world peace or eternal happiness? Either way, my wish will be a good one. My biggest problem will be staying up until 11:11. I never changed my clock forward an hour. Or back. Whatever we were supposed to do, it wasn't done. I haven't slept all week, so I go to bed early- as in 8-9:00 early. And then I am up by 5am. I'm fighting to keep my eyes open already and it is... 7:56. Joy.

Since I am bound to be up before the sun and everyone else in my family, maybe I will work on a tutorial for a hairbow...yes? Anyway, happy 11-11-11 everyone! Make the last bits count!
