French Neckties are BACK! (Reminiscent of “Grease”)

I’m summer loving these neckties that are popping up on woman ever!

Ahem, ahem…

Don’t they look super cute?!

There’s a variety of ways to ties them, and you can use different kind of scarves form silky to stiff.

Sorry about the dramatic music in the video, it’s kind of annoying.

But last night I watched the classic “Grease” and not only is “Summer Loving” stuck in my head, but the super cute French scarves sported by some of the stars.

It’s not the first time they’ve been spotted by people everywhere.

Teen Vogue did a short one page commentary on them, raving about it’s “twist of French” which is undoubtedly evident.

The recent scarves trend has been fading a bit, but only because of the warming weather. I’m positive it will stir again!

Until then, follow this tutorial for an eye-catching accessory!

Hip-hip hooray for old trends blossoming once more!

A Drizzly-ing Array of Footwear

Rain, rain, come and stay, we want to shop for rain boots today!

I’m not loving the rainy weather here right now.

But I am loving these ultra cute rain boots!

(BTW, did you get my joke in the title? Dizzy, drizzly, ha-ha? Get it?)

The only pair of rain boots I have ever owned I loved, I believe they were brown with polka dots. And as my tiny three year old brain remembers, they were really cute!

And then, a diva sense of fashion grew within me.

And when the beloved rain boots developed a cobweb inside, the rain boots were ruled out.

But now, they’re in style! I mean, everyone needs a pair of these rubber shoes for any time the sun isn’t shining. And who wouldn’t want to rock these rubber boots?

Super Easy Hair Bow Tutorial!

I did this with my best friend’s hair- she’s my model for every experimental hairstyle that involves long hair, since mine is too short to do anything with.

Anyway, I didn’t use this tutorial. But it’s so easy this way! I can’t believe I hadn’t googled it!

I’ll have to retry, but I guarentee this will work.

The only other thing I recommend is that if you have very heavy or thick hair, you may need more bobby pins so the sides of the bow won’t sag.

If your hair is very silky, put some hair spray type product in it. This will help it stay in and so you can sculpt your hair into the bow.

Last thing! You can also do this on the front of your head, in fact I like it better that way!

Here are some cool pictures of the fabulous hair bow trend:

If you are a more visual person, here’s a great tutorial I found that teches you two different ways!

Say Goodbye to your Flat Iron

Image

This hair (above) is SO in!

SO adorable!

SO fresh!

SO long, flat irons!

We already know the craze on lace, nude colored fabrics, and stripes, but alas, we are forgetting an important factor in a girl’s daily routine:

her hair.

I usually spend a LONG TIME on my hair. Usually. Today, I thought it might finally long enough to throw into a pony tail.

I was wrong. The result? Me messing with my hair ALL DAY.

Anyway

Textured hair is the best way to make a “WOW-ing” impression for the soon to come seasons.

That means-

no I am not kidding you-

bury your flat irons.

Have a funeral for your staighteners.

I don’t care, just test out textured locks!

And if you already have naturally curly, or wavy hair?

CONGRATS! I am really jealous of you!

To bad there’s no way I’ll ever get a perm…

Here’s some great products to help you achive the trendiest textures ever…

Kinky Curly custard is the best for natural, super duper curly men and women!

 

This is a sulfate free brand for naturals that want high quality frizz control!

 

 

This curling iron is about $40, and is recommended by instyle.com

But really, almost any curling iron works. This is for naturally straight hair!

If you curl your naturally curly hair, you’ll end up with something like this…

JUST KIDDING!

I’M JUST KIDDING!

Some curly/naturals actually do curl their hair to get perfect ringlet curls.
