In this tutorial we show future brides and bridesmaids alike how to keep their hair out of the way while maintaining a timeless, classic look for any event. This is one of those updos that really allows you to focus on the dress, accessories and overall beauty instead of being a major focal point. Let’s get started!

Fancy Grilled Cheese 9 Ways The cold weather months really put me in the mood for grilled cheese sandwiches and soups. And although Elsie and I are huge fans of a classic and simple grilled cheese sandwich, we thought it would be fun to come up with some variations for a family lunch we hosted over the weekend. Elsie also brought her panini maker over to my house, it was my first time using one and I've got to say- I'm now a huge fan! We made 9 different grilled cheese variations for our family to choose from, some savory some sweet. My favorite was the tuna with spicy mustard, while our mom favored the apple and provolone. Our flavor variations included: jalapeno peppers and colby jack cheese, bosc pear slices with ricotta and honey, cream cheese (or brie) with raspberry jam, and sour apple with provolone. Have fun making up your own signature flavor!
