So, before I begin this hair tutorial, let me just say……..I didn’t know I was making the same face the ENTIRE time. Sheesh! Now that that’s off my chest, it’s good to be back! When Chandra asked that I post a hair tutorial for Valentine’s Day, I begin to think of what I would want to see. Valentine’s is romantic. Fun. Lovely. Sigh. So, here we go!
I began with hair/curls from the previous day. I definitely recommend starting with volume in your hair.
My hair is not cut, so I just curled the shortest pieces of my hair in front.
I personally think leaving it there is pretty, but I’m not quite finished!
I added my pearl headband, because in mind, pearls are of ultimate romance. Teehee!
Happy Wednesday, and have a lovely Valentine’s Day tomorrow!!

Every once in awhile, when I’m feeling fancy, I do my hair like this. It is vintage inspired, just like my first hair tutorial on MoMoMod.
You are guaranteed to get plenty of compliments and “how did you DO that?!” questions.
(My apologies for a couple of blurry pictures)
Items needed: Hairspray, hair ties, and a few bobby pins.
Step 1: Take the front section of your hair, and split that section in half.
Use hairspray to define strands and tame flyaways.
Step 2: Start at your ends, and roll up and inward.
Once you have rolled your strand all the way up, secure with bobby pins.
Tip: if you keep the pins hidden, it will look better in the end!
Step 3: Secure the rest of your hair into a ponytail, and twist into a bun
And you’re done! Enjoy your vintage inspired do!

This summer I am all about braiding! I did another braided hair tutorial here a few weeks ago. I feel like I am the last one to jump on the train of the Fishtail braid, but here we go! I’ll be demonstrating an updo that took me about 10-15 minutes.
Begin by taking your hair and loosely arranging it (sort of braiding), and secure it with an elastic.
After securing, start your fishtail braid.
If you have never done the Fishtail before, here are some quick and simple directions:
1. Divide your hair into two sections.
2. Take a thin piece from the outside of the right strand and join it with the left strand.
3. Take a thin piece from the outside of the left strand and join it with the right strand.
4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 until your braid is at your preferred length, and secure with an elastic.
Loosen and pull strands of the braid to create a fuller and thicker look.
Twist up into a bun and pin. You’re done!
Have a good weekend!

Oh. Oh, my. It is Monday. It is 8:19 AM. I am at my house. IT. IS. SUMMER. BREAK.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>HAPPY DANCE>>>>>>>>>>>>TWO STEP>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
School actually ended Wednesday, but I was back in my classroom Thursday (cleaning). On Friday I got sick (still sick; I have no idea what’s going on), Saturday I chaperoned an end of the year trip to Monterey Bay Aquarium, Sunday I was laid up in bed STILL sick, and today I woke up at 4:30 AM and hustled my hindquarters to boot camp. Sadly, I left boot camp early because I was feeling light headed and not up to par. I got my 40 minutes of exercise in and booked it home.
After a shower I felt a little better and here I am. I have to do some running around today because I am in desperate need of a dress (my preference) for my engagement photos (next week).
I’m having to really practice what I preach. Many people lament that it can be difficult to find modest clothing and over the past two weeks I totally agree with that statement (I previously suggested alllllll the different ways to make immodest clothing modest).
All the dresses and skirts I’ve come across are:
1. Too short
Ugh. I went to my closet to pull out a dress I thought I still had in my possession–I didn’t. Over the past three weeks I’ve dumped loads of clothing off at Goodwill and that dress was one of them.
I’ve been a major proponent of layering, but in the summer sometimes I just want to wear a dress and be done. No extra shirt, no blazer, no cardigan–nada.
So today I’m making it my mission to see if I can find some modest skirts and dresses that do not require any rigging. I plan to post my find on Facebook and hopefully I can come in under $50 with an outfit for my engagement photos. We all should have such “problems”.
Stefanie blogged about headbands Friday and I decided to wear a headband today. This outfit is actually the reverse of THIS outfit. Ha.
Does anybody want to join my “woe-is-me-where-are-the-cute-and-flattering-modest-dresses” Pity Party? No?!
Wearing: Anthropologie top, vintage/thrifted skirt, some headband I bought at Nordstrom. Other pictures are from our Monterey trip.
