Because there is absolutely no point in blowing out your locks during rain shower season (as my hair in this video can attest), it’s best to have a fallback updo that’s both stylish and easy to do when in an early morning rush. The ultimate way to fight frizz beyond a buzz cut or toxic Brazilian potions basically comes down to braiding. We’ve already learned how to French braid and fishtail braid (twice), so in order to take it to the next level, today I’ll teach you how to emulate farmhands and famous twins with the “milk maid braid.” (**Extra credit points for incorporating a fishtail into this style).
Once “selfie” was actually included in the Oxford dictionary (though spellcheck still does not recognize it), I figured it was a topic that was well worth addressing in a long overdue (greatly anticipated) episode of How To Tuesday. Though our newsfeeds are swamped with narcissistic snapshots of mugs of friends, acquaintances, and Victoria’s Secret models, it seems that some of you are still not quite clear as to what constitutes an actual selfie. First of all, it’s a photograph of YOU taken by YOU. While posting a photograph of yourself taken by someone else is still just as self indulgent as a selfie, it does not classify as one. And because I know you’re going to have a super good hair day soon and need to document it, let’s break down the best and most flattering ways to capture your pretty little pout with the “Do’s” and “Don’t’s” of taking a perfect selfie.
And finally spring has sprung. The weather’s warmed up and it’s time to do a little bit of rearranging of our closets. Now, before you get all kinds of crazy trashing everything in your armoire, take a moment to consider taking part in the power clashing trend of spring. What’s power clashing, you ask? Well, instead of sticking with the stigma that you can’t wear two patterns at once, embrace bold prints and double down. There are a few rules though (always rules), so check out the video below to keep you on the right track.
Think you’ve got the trend down pat? Then mix your stripes, dots, plaids, and florals and come meet me and Qwear at The Dalloway to celebrate the power of prints.
A couple of weeks ago, supermarkets across the US saw a spike in pineapple sales. It may have had something to do with a little “science experiment” executed by none other than the Kardashian Krew. Now, I’m not sure who I’m more disgusted by: them for showcasing such unladylike behavior on national television, or you for buying into it. Either way, I’ve always been a fan of pineapple and it’s the perfect fruit for summer fetes, but it can appear to be a bit daunting in its native state. Have no fear, chopping up a pineapple is much easier than one might have guessed and it’s also chocked full of health benefits other than those not suitable, however, still mentioned on TV.
So, it snowed here yesterday, which reminds me of the story my mom told me of once building an Easter snow bunny. Might be happening again this year. Despite what the weather and that damn groundhog have up their sleeves, the Easter bunny is coming. That means it’s time to decorate some eggs. Granted I haven’t done this since I was like seven and I can only assume I was simply overseeing the procedure, so I thought I’d revisit this darling tradition. Turns out dyeing Easter eggs? Not so awesome. But, if you must, here’s a quick tutorial on how to get perfectly pastel Easter eggs for your Easter brunch party.
