It is a truth universally acknowledged that a rainy day becomes much cheerier when one is in possession of a turquoise umbrella.

Thanks a bunch to the three of you for entering each of your lovely photos and good luck!


Before we say adios, I wanted to share this slightly messy hairstyle with you. I saw a photo of it on Pinterest with directions. So I tried it out. It requires sectioning your hair into two braids, tying the braids together in the back, and pinning with as many bobby pins as it takes. 
 See? Simple, quick, and easy. Given you have bobby pins. I had to buy a pack just so I could do this hairstyle as my other pack disappeared some time ago.

Let me give you a quick lesson. *leans forward and lowers voice*

Keep your friends close and your bobby pins closer.

I kid you not. If you want to create pretty hairstyles, you must take my advice to heart. For bobby pins have an odd way of vanishing one by one until you're forced to break down and purchase their replacements at Wal-Mart. So keep one eye on them even in sleep lest they sprout tiny centipede legs and crawl away. I'm pretty sure it happens.

Well, do you have a better theory? ;-)

Have a great day, friends. Please don't forget to vote!
