Five Ways to do Your Hair for a Party

Five Ways to do Your Hair for a Party

I feel like a fraud writing this post. When it comes to hair, I am a failure. I usually straighten it or throw it up in a messy bun, toss in a hair bow and call it a day. To say I have hair envy of those who have the cutest styles is an understatement. […]

That’s Handmade!? {If The Crown Fits}

That’s Handmade!? {If The Crown Fits}

Jeff and I won the Mega Millions jackpot, so I figured a post about crowns would be quite appropriate. APRIL FOOLS! But have I told you I’m a link round-up junkie?
