There is always that time period after giving birth when your hormones are out of whack and getting back to normal. The worst thing that happens during this time is that your hair starts falling out in droves. You should see how much hair is all over the floor of my home. It’s absolutely ridiculous. I’m pretty sure in the next couple of weeks I’m going to be bald. Anyone wanna go wig shopping with me? ;)

6 Easy Hairstyles To Do While Running Out The Door

Easy-Hairstyles

I know how it is to run out of the house and realize that you haven’t brushed your hair…or your children’s hair for that matter. (Maybe there’s a reason God has blessed me with little boys….)

I also know how tempting it is to hit the snooze button two, okay…five times before you’re rushing out the door with only enough time to make sure you have the same shoes on. But I know that any outfit, no matter what you have on, will look that much more spectacular if you have your hair done.

Here are six easy hairstyles that can make you look incredibly put together, but only take a couple minutes to accomplish. [Continue reading over at lifeasmom.com...]

Scarf Up-Do

Posted on

During hot summer months, do you find yourself turning to the ponytail as a quick up-do to get your hair off your neck?

Well, here is a super easy alternative.

All you need is a scarf (or long piece of fabric) and a hair clip. If you’re clever, you could probably get the same effect with a hairband or bobby pins.

Start by tying the scarf around your head, leaving your hair hanging down your back. If your scarf isn’t that long, start tying in the back, so it’ll be able to tie at the top of your head.

Tie in a knot or bow at the top of your head a little off to the side. Looks good just like this, right? I would agree if it was Fall, but my neck is screaming at me that it’s hot, so let’s continue…

Twist the remainder of your hair into a slight bun and clip it at the top. If you feel so inclined, leave some hair hanging free in the front. The messier the better, in my opinion.

Then tuck the clip into the scarf to hide it. And you’re done!

How easy was that? And super stylish!

Hope you’re enjoying your summer and spending as much time outdoors as possible!

We had “Crazy Hair Day” at our Vacation Bible School today and we went all out.

I can’t even begin to tell you how proud this picture makes me of my son. Happy to raise a little person who is silly and spirited, all while learning about Christ’s love.

The Californians

Have you seen the SNL skit “The Californians”? It’s a mock soap opera, in which “The Californians” talk in this completely over exaggerated “valley girl” accent about directions to places and where the traffic would be horrible, etc. I myself as a true California girl think it’s hilarious. Completely wrong, but still hilarious. And I can’t stop talking like them. I am going around the house calling my husband “Stewart” and asking people “What are you doing here?”. I’ve discovered that the funnest thing to say so far in this accent is “Cheesecake Factory”. Try it. You can’t help but smile.

Hope your Monday is fabulous!

Bridesmaid Hair

Posted on

I have been so tired this week. Like so exhausted there have been times I questioned why I was driving (don’t worry, I was fine and still making smart decisions). Tomorrow is the last day of school, so things this week at work have been streeeesssssffffuuuulllll. Needless to say, I don’t feel like I have a lot of fashion “advice” to give you today.

But bear with me…my best friend is getting married next week and I will be doing my own hair. I haven’t decided what I’m going to do, but here’s what I was thinking:

1. Milkmaid braid-Cute, easy to do and different. Also very country-ish and the wedding will be in the country, so it’d be fitting. But is it too childish?

2. Top bun with a bow-I’ve never tried this before, so I don’t know if I could do it, but it’s so dang pretty!

3. Messy Fishtail braid-very easy to do, but is it fancy enough for a wedding? Or too casual?

4. Sideways braid to low ponytail-This is very easy and then I’d plan to put tight curls at the end of the side ponytail.

That’s what’s on my mind lately. What do you think of these four hairstyles? Any votes as to which one I should do? I’d love your opinions.

And I’ll do my best to post pictures of my hair at the wedding. :)

Happy Fashion Friday!

(Here’s to getting more sleep next week. Ha! Who am I kidding?)
