Rachel McAdams Double Braided Headband

As you’re reading this, I am flying over the ocean back to California for the weekend.  Because I’m a balla like that.  Not really, but it makes me feel cool to say that.  I can’t tell you just yet why I am going to Cali, unless you already know, then that’s fine. If you don’t, stay tuned, it’s kinda fun!!
Today I have a tutorial that resembles Rachel McAdams double braided headband that you may or may not have seen floating around the internet.  It is super easy, but simple and beautiful, so I gave it a whirl!  Here is the inspiration:

And here is mine:

I know this next picture is totally overexposed, but I thought it looked cool.  So you got to see it.  You’re welcome.

The red lips and makeup are from the e.l.f. makeup tutorial. Love me some red lips now-a-days!  Also love this hairdo.

Mines kinda messy because I did it using the webcam as a mirror and let’s just say, it’s not the same.  Here is the video tutorial, I hope you like it!!

{Warning: country music ahead. Just in case you don’t like it, push mute now!}

Go enter the Smokey Eye Kit Giveaway from yesterday!  It’s super easy to enter, just follow here!  Winner announced Friday!  That’s lots of !! I must be excited about it… haha

Now off to sleep in my comfy hotel bed.  It’s so big, makes me miss my hubby for a sec.  Then I remember, alone time, and I’m good.
Happy Thursday!

    hi there! i found your blog through “hey, sweet pea” and i have to say i love it! i don't consider myself to be very fashionable and needs lots of encouragement and inspiration. just wanted to say that you've provided both! i just tried this hairstyle and i love it. 🙂

    I will definitely have to give this one a try!!! I love that you're doing hairstyles, because you have dark hair like me and most of the time the people that I've seen giving hairstyle tips have blonde hair. It's nice to see what a hairstyle will look like with darker hair. Thanks for posting this!
