HAIR.

You guys.  These are by far these worst videos ever made.  Yet I made them.  That's your first piece of information.  Second - why?  Why on earth would you post these silly, low-quality videos?
I've had some people ask about my hair recently, specifically the waves/curls I've been doing.
And, we've all talked about getting together, but sometimes it just doesn't work out.  So, here you go.  I can't wait to get my first thumbs down on YouTube.  Also, I am completely aware that there are much more important things going on in the world right now. 🙂

The main product that makes the difference for me is my curling iron, The Beachwaver (I use the S1 most of the time, S .75 less often).  I swear I'm not trying to sell it. I just really, really like it.   I realize it is a lot of money for a curling iron, so it's an investment (the 20 % off coupons from Ulta apply to this product when they're available and you can apply for their points system - I got mine for 60% off doing this!).  There are a lot of other great options, but I'm not very skilled at those (curling wand seems to be most common, using the flat iron to curl).  With this one, you literally clamp you hair and press a button, hold it for 5-7 seconds, and ta-da!  They post tutorials on Instagram often - you can make a few different types of curls depending on how you use it.  I typically use the curling iron diagonally for normal/beachy waves.  If you use it horizontally, you'll have those crazy glam curls/Princess Kate bouncy hair.  For me, it's been worth the investments as far as hair products go.  Anyways, here are the videos...more info in them.   The other products I talk about are linked below.  Also, hair goals: Liz Adams, Haute Off the Rack, and Jillian Harris - always. 

This video is more about the products I use and how I dry my hair.   If you want to skip the fluff, go to video two.


And this one is more about the curling/Beachwaver.   Big takeaways - if you want lots of curl that lasts all day, use smaller sections and hold for longer.  Bigger curls that don't stay as tight - larger sections and don't hold as long.

  1. Thank you! These videos were actually pretty good! So I'm having issues with my hair curling fine on one side but not on the other... I don't know if it's because my hair naturally curls the other way, but that shouldn't be an issue, right? It's so weird...

    1. Mine does that, too! I'm not sure why! I soary extra hairspray or texturizing spray on those areas before curling and do really small sections and hold for 8 good seconds.

Regular blogging, she said, right?  Whoops.  Seriously...I'm trying.  I swear I'll get more consistent.  Anyways...  
Madewell is killing me right now.  The idea of spending more on maternity clothes that won't fit in three months is too much to stand, but I am still running out of stuff to wear, so I decided to try some things on the in the store recently (Holla - store close to home!) and holy cow, they are winning this season.  Madewell is one of those brands that I find doesn't look as cute on the website or hangers as it does in person.  Here were my favorites...Some outer layers to wear over maternity tanks and tees and then a few other tops that can expand. 

This long cardigan.  I typically don't wear long cardigans because of my height, but this one seems to work - I think it must be the weight.  

Look at this you guys.  You are wearing a sweatshirt.  But you look like you are wearing a structured jacket.  BOOM. 

This shirt is incredible. Works with a belly, bu…

This. Girl. - I love her.
Two is hard sometimes, you know that?  So fun and so taxing - all at the same time.   This little person becoming their own human being, little by little.  Our girl, she is very much her own person.  Stubborn, strong-willed.  But sweet and cuddly.  And SO much fun.   Asking Jesus for help as we aim to shape this little being - allowing her to blossom, yet to obey. In my frustration sometimes I imagine this will of hers standing up to something more substantial in the years to come (not just potty training or foods she dislikes), which gives me some relief - She'll stand strong to her faith being rocked; She'll ward off that idiot of a boy (they'll all be idiots in my opinion, I assume) who thinks he is worthy of her attention.
He has created her this way - our feisty, silly, sweet little girl.  I am so thankful.
