How To Tuesday: Roped In

rope braidIt’s probably a pretty bad sign when the people at your local watering hole all gush about how great you look because it’s pretty much the first time they’ve ever seen your hair look anything less than a lion’s mane.  While I spent the majority of my late teens and early twenties attempting to tame the beast that is my hair, I eventually began to embrace and encourage the natural wavy/curly/frizzy texture.  However, summer is just about to be upon us and that humidity and my hair have bigger beef than Jay-Z and Solange.  Therefore, it is crucial to come up with clever ways to disguise the duress and one way of doing so is with a rope braid.  Upon first glance, I thought I would never master this style, but how could the queen of fishtail braids not accept the challenge?  It took a few “spins” to get it right, but once I did, I was happy to add this hairstyle to my summer arsenal.

How To Tuesday: The Perfect Margarita (Just in Time for Cinco de Mayo)

kirsten smith smittyAs mentioned, May is a mere few days away.  Spring is in full swing and summer is hot on its trail.  Sure, Memorial Day is the real “summer kickoff” but I consider Cinco de Mayo the primer.  The last time I made a Cinco de Mayo video was beyond fun, but a bit chaotic.  This week’s episode gets down to the nitty gritty- a Cinco de Mayo (and basically all summer long) essential: the perfect margarita.  Watch as my special guest, Cesar Navarro, walks us through the simple and delicious recipe.

How To Tuesday: Damsel in Distressed Denim

destroyed denimIt seems counterintuitive to want to wear something that looks like it’s been handed down– for several generations, but destroyed denim came back onto the fashion scene several seasons ago and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.  I especially like it for the warmer months as if those extra holes are going to provide any extra ventilation in prevention of the dreaded “swamp ass.”  My parents are always confused when I wear a pair of shredded jeans around them… even more so when they find out how much I shelled out for them.  So, if you are anything like Dick and Georgia and want to achieve the look of distressed denim without distressing your bank account, I have the tricks to DIY destroyed denim.  You can also apply all of these techniques to denim cut off shorts (like the ones I taught you how to make last spring here).

How To Tuesday: But First, Let Me Take a Selfie

how to take a selfie

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.
