Polka dots! Polka dots! I love polka dots!
Forever 21 shirt and bow necklace, GAP jeans, Old Navy loafers
I know I wore this outfit before in a how-to post (click here) but since it’s my first day back at school, cut me some slack 😛 I slung my cross charm (from a different necklace) onto this cute bow one because my other necklace was really rusty and my mom said it’s bad for my skin. I was thinking the other day and realized that the sweetest going-away-to-college gift from my family would be a necklace from each member! Then I can take the charms from each necklace and string them together so that I can always remember everyone in my family when I wear my “family” necklace 🙂
You can see my self-cut blunt bangs here! Everyone says I look younger, which may not be such a good thing at my age, but I can always split it to the side if I feel like it.
Another hobby of mine that I haven’t shared here yet is playing with hair. I went through a HUGE hair phase a couple years ago when I watched countless how-to videos on youtube and read countless blogs on hairstyles. Whenever I saw smooth hair, I actually felt an itching urge to braid it or twist it into a bun or try other cool things with it! Yesterday, I did my sister’s hair while she was distracted with lego. First, I dutch braided her bangs (she cut her own bangs a couple weeks ago because she was dared by a boy…since she’s only 6, it did not turn out very well). Then, I dutch braided around her head from one side to the other and tied into a side ponytail. Last, I weaved her bangs braid into the bigger braid to hide the ends. This is how it turned out:
I have lots of cute hair ideas that I’ve collected over the years! When I went to China a couple years back, they actually had hair salons that have lots of people doing different braided/twisted/creative temporary hairstyles. After I got my hair done, I figured out how to do it and learned a really cool braided ponytail! I might share it later 🙂
Until next time,
