  • Project: day 118: fashionable momma/ diy beachy waves, or not?!
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1, just not sure it really worked how I wanted it to.
  • Would I do it again? not sure, it didn’t turn out quite like I had hoped, but I had to try! 😦
  • What I would do differently: I wish I knew, maybe it was my hair… I have  a lot of it!
  • Items used: Solia Flat iron, Oribe Beach Wave Spray, Treseme Tres 2 hairspray.
  • Section hair into 5-10 big sections than braid each in a loose braid. Run a flatiron over each braid, let them cool down, spray hairspray and undo the braids.

Until ipinterest tomorrow!

check out the “recommend a pin” page!

Standard

Just added a new page to my site called “recommend a pin”. I got the idea from another blogger doing daily pinterest projects as well, http://366daysofpinterest.com/ .

I would love to hear about any “pins” you would like me to try! It could be a link to your own site, someone elses site, or straight from pinterest. Just click on the “recommend a pin” tab on the top, leave a comment there with a link to the suggestion, and I will do my best to make it apart of my year-long adventure!!!

Thanks for following and motivating me daily to keep going!

  • Project: day 111: outdoors we will go/ simple spring flower arrangement/ daffodils and lemons!
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
  • Would I do it again? definitely, it’s too easy not to do!
  • What I would do differently: add at least one more lemon, but it would be very cute with additional flower colors in the arrangement as well
  • Items used: Daffodils are so cheap right now, I got 3 sets of 10 at Trader Joe’s for just $1.15. I had one lemon lying around the house and saw one up for grabs in the teacher’s lounge today, but it turned out to be a very small grapefruit! Oh well, it still works! Adorable idea from: http://b-moviestar.com/tag/flower-arrangement

Until ipinterest tomorrow!
