Beachy Waves Mini Tutorial



My hair idol.

Want loose waves? You need to know how to use a hair wand properly. Turns out I didn’t know how to use one properly and I have been rocking unnecessarily tight curls for years due to my ignorance. Derp. Here’s the tiny tip I didn’t know. (And also, my first video. Hi! )


Ain’t nobody got time for errrthin’.

I’ve go a month until a family wedding. Ugh. That means I have to PUT ON CLOTHES. No. Not just clothes. A DRESS. Like, that shows my LEGS. *shudder*

I’ve got a two-month old. Which means I have a total of zero to two hours of free time a day, which includes feeding myself and showering. So. I do not have time to work out. But that’s unacceptable. So. I’m trying to figure out how to combine taking care of the kid and taking care of myself.

I’ve started to do BABY PLANKS which is just doing planks or push ups over his face while he’s on his little activity mat. It works. I line the yoga mat up next to his and we both get a little 5-10 minute session out of it.

I also am trying to use a pre/post-natal workout DVD I bought. It’s divided into segments so when he’s chilling I press play and squeeze a body part in. I’ve done this a total of once. Today. I’m starting this today. I think it will work. It has to. I have to do something.

More on that DVD later. But here’s how I dealt with having a choice between “working out” or drying my hair, today. Two french braids into a side braid when my hair was wet. GOOD ENOUGH!! Ain’t Nobody Got Time For everything, right?

New Hair Trend: Pixels

Buzzfeed and Reddit are trying to tell me that this will be a thing.

Pixelated hair. Dying geometric parts of your hair to make it look pixelated.

1. I don’t think it looks like pixels. Just jagged stripes.  2. Wouldn’t you have to have your hair combed in a specific position all the time? Otherwise it’s just going to look like someone at the salon accidentally tripped and ran into you with a brush full of bleach…



Work Out Hair

Pig tail braids look cute after, too.

high and tight. put the pony at ear-lobe height, then tighten it upward for some top-of-head volume ala Blake Lively.

These work. And they look like 80s jelly bracelets!
