The Braided Up-do (& no heat!)

Hi my lovelies! Its been a little while since I've posted a hair tutorial so I thought why not today?! [since I finally have time... I hate school]. Over 2 months ago I posted about a no-heat braided updo. I literally learned how to do this hairstyle about 30 minutes before I actually tried it out. Now I don't recommend to do that at all.. but I was feeling adventurous that day. I needed a quick hairstyle that looked like it took a long time yet didn't require me to dry my [very long and thick] hair. Anyone remember that post? Here's a picture to remind you!

Lazy Sunday + TBBC update!




Happy sunday everyone! I came home early this week and both of my kitties were laying together on my bed and I had to take some cute pictures with them. As always Middie loved every min. of it and Knight well... the picture speaks for itself. [They are loving lazy Sunday's] Anyways I've been so lazy today as always, so I thought i'd be productive and put up a post.

HALLOWS' EVE

It's that time in the year when the fall breeze starts rolling in and the leaves beign to fall off the trees. In the spirit of Halloween I decided to make a pumpkin. I can't remember a memory in my childhood of making a pumpkin and my family doesn't do it every year. Sooo this Halloween I insisted that I carve a pumpkin. :)

Big/Little Gifts [part 1]

So at the campus organization I'm involved in, we have what's called "Adopt a freshmen"... but it always reminded me of the Greek "Big/Little" idea. An upperclassmen gets a freshmen and we become like a mentor to them and spend time getting to know them and really develop a friendship.

Being a senior this year, I really appreciate having the opportunity to connect to some of the freshmen this way because otherwise I honestly probably wouldn't. Not because I don't love the freshmen [actually I'm kinda jealous of them... they are just starting such an amazing experience] but simply just because senior year is CRAZY BUSY!

Anyways! When I found out who my little was [and yes i will refer to her as that!]... I was OVERJOYED! Honestly, she's the best. So because I was so excited, I wanted to make her gifts... [because if I was a little I would want gifts.. and who doesn't love gifts?!] 

So [PART one] of the gifts I made her was this crafty Chalkboard Mason Jar. She loves the color coral so I found the color closest to coral and went for it! I saw the idea for spray painting the mason jars on Pinterest and went from there. So it's super easy and honestly not that expensive!

Fall Time = Craft Time :)

Hello Ladies!
I know I know...it has been about three years since I have posted a blog post and yes you can disown me now (please dont though). So since it is turning fall now..its time for crafts. :) And since some pure genius invented pinterest, there are plenty of crafts to choose from. I stumbled upon a way to take boring shoes and make them gorgeous! (it's inexpensive too!)

[BTW have you guys tried the twist braid yet? how did it turn out?] Recently I've been all about the Messy Bun. I cant get enough of it because its quick and gets my hair out of my way. Its been so hot here lately that my hair has been driving me crazy...

Summer Lovin'


The soft summer breeze and sand between my toes is one of the many things I love about the beach. This past Friday I got to go on my first beach trip without the parentals with my best firend Allison. Even though we got lost along the way, I wouldn't have it any other way. I was excited for the trip not only cause it was my first trip with independence, but I got to wear my new bathing suit. :)

I had been searching for a 50's styled one piece swimsuit (which are harder to find than you would think) that would compliment my figure, but wouldn't brake my $30-35 dollar budget. So I carted my sister to the mall to begin our search. We hit all the major department stores (ie. Belk, Macys, JCPenneys, & Dillards) with no luck. As we walked past forever 21 I thought why not just look. I usually dont trust forever 21 clothing that much because it can be poorly made. To my surprise I found this retro 50's navy blue with pink polka dots suit for around 30 dollars. It screamed ME so I had to get it. So far, I have actually been impressed with the quality and how well its held up against cholrine. It is so comfortable while also being modest for my standards.

I am sad to see summer coming to an end. I wish I could stay in that suit on the beach for the rest of the year, but sadly I cant.

Best of Love,
S

Sunday.


I woke up late this morning as always. I was planning on washing and drying my hair, straight, like normal. But the planned failed when I got out of the shower and I noticed that it was already 9am. Church starts at 9:30.... oh Lord. Typically, I would just throw it up in a bun and try to make it look decent but today I got somewhat adventurous. 

Usually, I always tell people to NEVER try a new hairstyle minutes before you are leaving to go somewhere... but I thought "what the heck". 

So, I needed a hairstyle that would work for wet hair because there was no way I could dry my hair in less than 15 minutes. So... I looked on pinterest for "Wet hairstyles" and found one that seemed easy yet beautiful! This braided updo is elegant and EASY! It took me probably less than 10 minutes yet looked like it took me at least 30. 

Let me know if you want me to show you step by step how I got this look! Enjoy your sunday.

C'est la vie,
J

Something New



Oh to start a new project right before both of our senior years...

For a while now I've (Jaclyn) been thinking of starting up a blog again but one with a new direction and with some help. So I knew someone who I thought might be interested in starting something new with me, Suzanne.
