Scallop Dress for Valentines

Sheath Dress

Sheath Dress

 

I’m dying just a little bit over this dress.  It’s modest, it’s flattering, it looks suuuuuper expensive and has the prettiest eyelet and scallop detailing.  Would you believe me if I told you it was ON SALE for under $100?!  …. Cause it is.

Banana Muffins + Banana Frosting

IMG_0084

Well little miss Savy Jane had her fourth birthday. I’m still in denial and don’t like to talk about it!  For her classroom party at school we were asked to bring in something “healthy”… something with no dyes and no frosting. No cupcakes. If you follow me on snapchat (twistmepretty2) you know that I wasn’t happy about this! Savy has been so exited to celebrate her birthday at school all year long and she’s been perfecting her baking skills just for the occasion. Of course I had to be a rebel and we made some “healthy” banana bread that I let her frost anyway. I know the teachers were so grateful someone finally broke the rules! I’m mean c’mon! This isn’t the healthiest banana bread — I have a recipe that uses oats and apple sauce that I’ll share next time I make it –but I had to find some passive aggressive way to be annoyed haaahaha! This recipe was just for fun and it was DELISH!!!!

Crown Braid Tutorial

>>> This crown braid tutorial is one of my absolute favorites!  You guys have been asking for more hairstyles with no extensions so I’m delivering!  If you  have extra long hair just wrap the tail all the way around like a headband and tuck it behind the braid on the other side.  If your hair isn’t so long, watch the video to see how I’ve easily hidden the tail and meshed the braids together!

Boyfriend Jeans and Short Girls….

Sometimes I try to harness my inner “fashion blogger” and then I just… I just can’t and I have to bust out a loud laugh because I look and feel ridiculous.  So in case you were wondering, yes, Brian and I have a hilarious time taking pictures together haha!!

Does anyone else feel like boyfriend jeans were made for girls with super long and thin legs? #shortgirlprobs.  I love boyfriend jeans because they’re so comfy and I love the unfitted look but I’ll be honest, they’re not very flattering on my 5’2″ frame.  I feel like the ones I’m wearing here are a perfect example of what not to wear… let me explain.

Three Pull Through Braid Tutorials

pinterest

I had SO much fun with you guys on Periscope today!  I’m always  hesitant to spend time on new social media platforms but connecting with you guys in real time today was pretty awesome.  It’s still so weird to me that there were that many of you who cared enough to tune in and honestly I’m still pinching myself over it!  If you missed the sesh you can view it here but it’s only available up to 24 hours after it aires, so don’t delay if you wanna see it.  We took a little house tour and mostly chatted about the most random things… we pretty much covered a little bit of everything.  My favorite had to be walking in on Kai though standing up for the first time in his crib, could you just not die?  Needless to say we had to lower his mattress tonight, ugh ha!

Well wow, without further adieu let me introduce you to today’s video… if you couldn’t tell by that massive image ^^^ it’s a few different ways to wear the beloved Pull Through Braid!  I’ll be doing a part 2 and most likely 3 of this video in the near future… I had planned 10 styles in one video but my camera died on three and that would have made for one super long video so… I’m just rollin with it :)
