I will return!

So it’s a loooooooooong time since I’ve written a new blog. Due to my computer not working, the holidays, and some family health issues blogging has not exactly been on my radar. But just today I installed my new computer woop woop, and things seem to be calming down quite a bit. So I shall return to the blogging scene. I have missed you all and I hope to bring you even better posts this year. So keep an eye out for new posts. I may even do a new post tomorrow. I love you guys! It’s good to be back.

I’m Thankful it’s over!

So Thanksgiving has come and gone, hooray! I’m all for holidays don’t get me wrong, but its seems to be more and more work every year. People’s expectations are outlandish! My eldest brother had the nerve to say I had abandoned my duty of cooking the pecan pie because I only made pumpkin this year! REALLY REALLY? I made the turkey so he can shut up! Haha this of course was just a bit of harmless teasing between siblings, but I’m talking about the rest of the people out there…you know who you are, you people who run over small children with your shopping carts so you can be done shopping first, you people who seem to challenge anyone around you to a shopping cart death match! or even you people who are so stressed you punch out the giant turkey display and scream QUIT TAUNTING ME! I KNOW I’M NOT READY! This too is a slight exaggeration but you get my point, I think everyone needs to take a chill pill and realize that the holiday is about being thankful not about being a perfect cook, stepford wife, or holiday magic maker. So that’s why I’m thankful it’s over (of course I still have to survive the Christmas shoppers aka The Possesed haha). So here are some pictures of our holiday feast, that we girls braved the grocery store the day before Thanksgiving in order to make. Hope you enjoy!

I’m sure I will end up doing a full post about our Thanksgiving feast this year, but since I’m fighting off some serious tryptophan right now I will share the picture of what I made this year…The turkey! I must say it turned out beautifully! Happy Thanksgiving!

Why I don’t need a curling iron or hot rollers!

 It’s that time of year for me, no I’m not talking about the upcoming holidays, it’s the time of year where I feel the need to cut all my hair off because I am bored with what I have! Which is a little crazy cause I have been working so hard at growing it long and keeping it healthy! So instead of going and chopping all my hair off I decided I would just change-up how I normally style my hair. I didn’t want to damage my hair though, I  mean I could’ve straightened it with the hot iron, curl it with the curling iron or hot rollers, or even dye it but like I said before I didn’t want to damage my hair, and all the heat and chemicals is not so nice. Then I remembered about rag curling, what a great idea! No heat required, just a bit of time and some scrap cloth is all you need.

I started with clean wet hair.

 Then using scrap fabric I had cut into strips, I wrapped my hair around it and rolled it up.

to where I looked something like this.

I used the rag curls somewhat like sponge rollers in the fact that I slept with my hair this way. So you can imagine my delight when I woke in the morning and took my hair down and found the springiest curls!

another great thing about these insane curls is they stay all day, and give incredible texture so wearing my hair up is so easy! So easy in fact I decided to pull off a faux bob.

I decided to accessorize with one of my fave hair pieces a flower 🙂 and there you have it rag curls!
