Braid Faux-Hawk! Summer Hair Tutorial!

If any of you know me, you know I'm "hair challenged"... Legit... I can barely do anything with it. But lately that's all changed! Oh the joys of having longer hair! Well it's not super long, it's just past my shoulders, but last year I had chopped off all my hair to my ears!

I've been loving the simple messy top-knots, or the now super popular "Katniss" braid. But I wanted to do my hair somewhat different the other day and this is what came from it!

This look is something that you can do for short to medium hair lengths. I'm not sure how it would work with long ones. If you have long hair and you try, lmk.
I give you "The Braided Faux-Hawk"

Here's what you need!
Hair Spray
Dry Shampoo
Bobby Pins and a Hair Elastic






To start, add the dry shampoo to your hair and follow the directions on the canister!


Gather your hair at the crown of your head.








Hope you enjoy this super cute summer hairstyle! I'm sorry the pictures are small. You should be able to click on them to make them larger!

Spring Formal - Finally

Remember when I promised Spring Formal pictures? Well I'm actually keeping a promise I made! Whoo!

The majority of them are from dinner but that's okay :)

Dinner - In the background is our waiter. He never told us his name so we dubbed him
 "Joe" since he reminded us of Joe the butler guy from The Princess Diaries.

Oh hey Joe... 

I'm not sure why Lil looks so worried here.

Good evening to you also Ben!

I did Liliana's hair and it was really cool! I did a "Katniss" braid then
put it in a side messy bun! So cute!

Ben caught me off guard with the photo. You can kinda
 see the beading on the strap that I did!

Better view of the beading. Ben was obviously trying to be
 artsy with this photo, thus it being sideways.

Liliana, looking slightly worried again.

Dancing :)

Hope you enjoyed the photos!

All Who Wander Are Not Lost - Free Wallpaper

I'm kinda obsessed with Lilly Pulitzer lately.

I got a Nook Glow for my birthday, and the cover I chose without hesitation was a Lilly Pulitzer one. (picture to come)

I was bored with my wallpaper on my laptop so I decided I wanted to make one! It turned out so cute I wanted to share it with you :)


Just click the image. Then right click it again to save to your computer!

Gone Fishing...

Want to know what I did over my birthday?

I went fishing with Cristian!

It was a cold, rainy but incredibly fun time!



Boys will be boys...

Happy Birthday to me! Sweet 18!

The Case Of The Missing Laptop

So friends, I found my camera. In fact, I have some pretty neat pictures I'm planning on posting. But my dad goes fishing for the whole month of May and decided he'd take my laptop along. *sighs* So I have no place to upload my photos to. I'm so sorry!

I even have a pretty epic photo of Cristian kissing a fish when we went fishing over my 18th birthday weekend! Gah! 

We have a wedding for my cousin this weekend, so if my dad brings the laptop I'm going to pounce upon it to post up a storm hopefully!

Oh, and there are 32 days until I skip off to Kamp Kanakuk again. Well, not quite literally skipping, because that would be really hard to do with my footlocker/trunk and huge duffle I pack. But once I arrive at Kamp, there will be plently of skipping, and screaming with joy at the reunion of friends. The new Kampers think we're insane and I love it.

Something kinda cool is that the worship leader from Kamp came to Green Bay for a concert at my church! Brady Toops is amazing! You should look him up! When he emails me some photos I'll post them!

Okay, enough random thoughts from the  now 18 year old blogger. (I CAN VOTE!!!!!!!!!!!)
