Christmas Tree Shopping

OOOOHHHH how fun it is to get ready for the holiday season when you have two little cutie pies with you! This year we got a tree right after Thanksgiving and it was so much fun snapping a few photos. My favorite: the way Lukas’ face lights up when Wilder hugs him around the neck. The giggles Wilder gave us as he ran through the trees. And of course my snuggle bug wrapped up close to me. <3

Hi Everyone!!

We are continuing our weekly hair routine today with day 4 in the series!

So we’ve already gone through:

Day #1 –  Easy Overnight Waves

And Day #4’s style is the Half Up Braided Messy Bun!! Thank you Lauren for helping me come up with this weekly hair schedule, and Jasmine for taking the photos!!

So continuing with the last hairstyle, the Half Up Side Fishtail – you can easily turn this into a new style by undoing your braid and pulling your hair into a messy bun!!

Now I know your half up braid is going to be pretty messy at this point, but that’s ok cause that’s the look we’re going for with this style!

Step 1:
Wake up with hair already in the Half Up Side Fishtail from the day before.

Step 2:
Undo side braid gently.

Step 3:
Pull loose hair together at the nape of your neck. With a strong hair band, pull half your hair through, then twist and pull the rest through.

Step 4:
Secure with bobby pins. You’ll probably need ALOT of bobbies! 😉 Secure the poking out pieces on your half up style as well.

Enjoy running out the door with this quick, simple, sassy hairstyle!!!

Half Up Side Fishtail Braid {Hair Tutorial}

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

Last week we were in Wisconsin for a funeral so I took a week off to just be with family. But today I’m continuing my hair series with Style #3 in the weekly routine (which I’ll put together at the end!)

Today’s style is the Half Up Side Fishtail!! Thank you Lauren for helping me come up with this weekly hair schedule, and Jasmine for taking the photos!!

So continuing with the last hairstyle, the Half Up Fishtail Braid – you can easily turn this into a new style by pulling the hair over your shoulder and doing a simple fishtail braid.

So the idea is to sleep on your hair from the day before and then just freshen up the style by adding this little touch!!

Step 1:
Wake up with hair already in the Half Up Fishtail Braid from the day before. Pull loose hair over one shoulder.

Step 2:
Split hair into two sections.

Step 3:
Pull one piece from the right side over to join with the left chunk of hair. Then pull one piece from the left side over to join the right side of the hair. This is the fishtail braid! If you need help I made a simple Fishtail Side Braid Youtube video here.

Step 4:
Continue fishtailing all the way down to where your layers start.

Step 5:
Secure braid with an elastic band. Make the braid full by starting at the bottom of the braid and slightly tugging the left and then the right side. Hairspray or use texturizing powder if you have it!

Enjoy running out the door with a quick, simple, sassy hairstyle!!!
