Spring Ready Hair: How to!

If you’re loving the three twisted buns I posted yesterday as much as I do, you will be happy to know that I found the how to!

Thanks Cup of Jo for putting together this fab tutorial!

 

Here’s how from Cup of Jo:

1. This style is so easy, it’s laughable. Day-old hair is best (which is true for most hairstyles, since it’s easier to work with hair that has a little dirt in it).

2. Divide your hair into three equal parts and quickly spray each section with a little hairspray to help give it hold. Let the hairspray set for a couple seconds, and then lightly comb it out.

3. Take the section on your right side, and twist your hair all the way down to the end. You want to twist counter-clockwise, toward your face. Wrap the right section in on itself, just like you’re making a little bun. Let some of the hair stick out, it’s ok (you don’t want them to look like Princess Leia buns).

4. Pin the right bun in place. I like to use these mini bobby pins, since they’re easier to hide and they’re coated in rubber so they hold your hair better.

5. Next, twist the middle section clockwise and pin. Then twist the left section clockwise and pin.

6. Spray the three buns with a little more hairspray, and you’re done!

Yummy Holiday Dessert Bar

I have followed Amy Atlas and all her happenings for a few year now {along with Mindy Weiss, Amy is one of my all time favourite event planning icons} and her work never ever falls short of amazing!

Amy is queen of dessert tables; or as it says on her website “entertaining expert, baking and crafting stylist”!

Here is a holiday dessert table Amy featured this week on her blog. This ridiculously adorable dessert bar was created by RubyJu. Perfect for the holidays!

Merry Christmas Everyone! I will be back next week to finish my Ten Days of Etsy Finds!

D.I.Y.: Pie in a Jar!

Pie + mason jar= Key to my ♥

I don’t think this D.I.Y. needs much of an introduction. I came across this insanely adorable foodie favour over on Our Best Bites…….. I believe foodie favours are going to be a hit in my home for every occasion in 2011! Seriously, is anyone really going to complain?

If you give this a whirl, send me some pics! Here are the instructions you will need!

Two-Bite Yumminess!

Anyone close to my ♥ knows that I absolutely love pie! Apple pie to be particular… and my Grammie’s homemade apple pie to be exact! No one will ever make a more delictable, perfectly golden, sugared top display of yumminess!

I came across these two-bite versions of my all time favourite comfort food over on The Comfort of Cooking! How fabulous would these be displayed on your next dessert table? Looks like I am going to be doing a little baking of my own very, very soon!
