I will be taking a short little break from the blog during our travels, but I will be back in action with plenty of pictures and stories from the trip. In the meantime, stay classy, healthy and beautiful :)


trend watch :: the bun

Over the past 9 months, I’ve been seeing a lot of variations on the basic bun. From braids, twists and knots, people are getting very creative out there. I’m not sure if it’s the nostalalgia of ballet classes from years ago or what… but one thing’s for sure, the bun is back- bigger and higher than ever.

Now, you might be thinking, how in the heck do those girls get their buns so perfect? Well, it’s easy and you can do it too, I promise! Some of you may have heard of “the sock bun approach”.{Cutting the end off a sock and tucking your pony tail into it as you roll it down to your head.} Easy enough, right? Well,  it just got easier!! Check out the latest from the Wedding Chicks.

It comes with a step-by-step illustration, a “sock” and cute hair ties to boot!

the american

It’s official. I’m addicted to the olympics. I have been up way past my bed time every night this week but I just can’t turn away from the TV. 

So here I am… tired and obsessed but oh-so-happy that it’s Friday. Of course, my Friday night entails watching the olympics but let’s make it a little more fun than a regular “school night”, shall we?

{in a perfect world, I would have made it, tried it and photographed it. But since I didn’t have time to experiment, a big thank you to ol’ betty for this delicious sounding recipe. }
