One day of work (and a four hour meeting, God help me) is the only thing that separates me from a little holiday vacation. I am so excited to relax and enjoy family for a few days! Tonight I’m doing my annual Christmas dinner with two of my sorority sisters, Wednesday J and I are going to finish our last-minute shopping, Thursday we’re doing a Christmas Eve brunch and then celebrating with my family, and Christmas Day will be spent at my parents’ house with all of my siblings! This is the most magical time of year, isn’t it?
After yesterday’s life questions post, I thought I’d end the holiday season on a fun note by sharing a 30 second hair tutorial!
I am not talented when it comes to fixing my hair. I was not blessed with that ability. My hair is incredibly fine, making it impossible to complete the fancy hairstyles so popular online. Every time I search a cute updo on Pinterest, I’m inundated with elaborate works of art that require mermaid hair, 3 hours, the patience of Job, and tears of an angel. I have none of those things, so how do I look fancy?
For my sister’s recent rehearsal dinner, I begged my other sister to do something with my lifeless mop. She told me a woman she works with wore her hair like this often and wanted to try it on herself, but her hair is too short. She worked her magic on me and voila!
What you need:
What to do:
Place headband at the front of your head.
Pull hair back.
Tuck hair into headband.
I did buy a fancier $5 headband at Ulta to use throughout the holidays. I personally prefer the boho, messy look of this, but you can be make it a bit more polished if you prefer. I sprayed it down with hairspray because my hair falls pretty quickly! If I can do this style, anyone can! 😉
And I won’t leave you without a cocktail reference. If you’re hosting a party or get-together this week, here’s the easiest and most festive cocktail to serve! I am all about simplicity, after all.
Isn’t it beautiful? Freeze the cranberries to keep the champagne cool longer!
Anne and I are taking a Blogging Basics break tomorrow, so I’ll see you guys next week. I hope you have the most wonderful Christmas. Thank you so much for being part of my year- this blog is a bright spot for me, and I’m beyond grateful that you come back every day, even when I have no idea what I’m doing.
