PIN IT UP, GIRL - (Private Browsing) Our email box is literally flooded with requests for updos so here’s a fun one to get us all going! This is always a favorite for attending an event. This updo looks gorgeous on any hair color but particularly amazing with hilighted hair because it gives the hair lots of depth and dimension. For lack of a better word, I love the way it becomes “swirly”. Best thing is; it’s easy to do, gorgeous and keeps your hair out of your way for the night. I made this a printable tutorial, so all of the steps are next to the photos. Tools you’ll need: curling iron (to prep the hair with waves), sectioning clips, teasing comb or brush, clear elastic rubber band, bobby pins, light to medium holding hairspray (to mist over at the end).

DIY rope bracelet from a J.Crew shopping bag! & sideoats + scribbles - StumbleUpon I must confess, I love jcrew so much. I even love the bags! (Hate to throw them away.) Here’s how I did it in just a few steps. First, remove the handles from the bag. Braid your bracelet, then use another clothespin to hold it in place. Now for the only tricky bit. Here are some closeups of the knots so that you can see them better. Now to finish it up, take the piece of the handle that you trimmed and knot it around the other end, then remove the clothespin. Then you can tidy up and trim off to even things up. To wear, just slip the big knot into the back. That’s it! I think it’ll go great with all my striped shirts this summer — I have a major stripe obsession going on right now! xo,
