Simple Summer.

I picked up these Tom’s wedges at a recent sale at Nordstrom’s and they’ve been the best picks for this summer.  They jazz up a simple outfit and are the most comfortable heels I’ve ever owned.  I can wear them all day and walk good distances in them.

Found Object Art.

1About a year ago, my friend Lindsay dragged half of a broken tree to my doorstep because she knew I was on the lookout for good piece of branch for an art project. What a friend, I mean she stumbled up them gem on a walk and carried it to me! I didn’t have the end result in my mind at the time but I knew it needed to be big; it had to with a start like this one. I began by taking my favorite piece and spraying it gold. It sat like that for about a year until I was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest. After scooping up some yarn and strings of leather, I quickly put together a great piece of wall art.

I really love the end result. It is so simple but adds a lot of color to our room. The teal is the same color as a desk that I have and the orange flows nicely with our duvet. There are somethings that you have to go out and make in order for it to be exactly what you need.

Easy Hair DIY.

On New Years, I was googling different easy hair styles to put together to use for the night.  However, in looking I realized they all said easy but were not so I made it super simple.  You have to start with a head of full curled hair so that may take a while but then after that it’s super simple.

If you choose to add an headbands or flashy pieces, do it first before you pin any other pieces of hair.  I added this bedazzled headband so I locked it in first thing.

After that, pull some of the curled pieces from in front of the band and behind to twirl behind and pin in a half up position.

I stopped here (less than 3 mins) but you can keep pinning sections like this.  The next small section would pin below the first and so on.  Once the bottom is pinned as far as you can go, you can take the tails of your hair still hanging and twirl them up and pin the hair in place to be a messy low bun.  I’ve also done that which is easy but takes about 10-15 mins.  Make sure to pin that well so when you put a jacket on or there is movement around the hair, it won’t get pulled out.

Voila!  This is the hair DIY from yesterday’s post.
