I loved the outfit I wore yesterday. I really felt feminine and ladylike. This is the kind of look I prefer: a shift, a huge bun, strappy shoes. I was extremely proud of my bun. Would you believe I didn’t know how to tease it this time last year? I have to share that I sent a pic of my hair to Erika Bearman (OscarPRGirl) and she tweeted back “it’s major” totally made my day…
My wedding day approaches. What to do with a mass of hair on the big day? I’ve had long hair forever and I want to make good use of it for my wedding. What do you like?

Lately I have been totally into the high bun. It has always intimidated me a bit because I don’t like to rat my hair. But once I figured out how to do it, I can’t stop! It’s so easy and it can prolong a hair wash for 2-3 days! It also turns any outfit from humdrum to posh. The best tutorial I’ve found is from Beth Jones (here). Do you like these outfit posts or are they annoying?

Obsessed. I’m not sure how willing I am to tease like crazy but perhaps…I’m love-love-loving this tutorial from BJonesStyle.

Thank you B.Jones!
Lately I have been really into topknots, buns, chignons (a la @OscarPRGirl below) and have been looking around for relevant instructions. The easiest way I’ve found is to either use a hair piece or place a clip around your pony tail and wrap the hair around that to make it fatter. I still haven’t grasped the whole teasing concept.
I’m hoping to add my own eventually!
