Beach Waves Hair Tutorial

After I cut my hair, I wanted to try the wavy hair look. So I decided to loo online for tutorials and products. I tried the Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray, but it wasn't right for my hair, neither were the YouTube tutorials that mentioned using hair straighteners to make your hair wavy. So here is my tip for those with fair wavy/curly hair that is hard to tame!

After a shower or wetting your hair divide into pieces and roll. Then pin onto your head, bobby-pins and hair clips are just fine. Allow some time for your hair to air dry. After 20 minutes to 40 minutes remove the pins and begin to blow dry (without unrolling your hair).

Once dried, it'll look like the photo below. Then unroll your hair and if your hair is like mine, it'll look like my hair in the photo above this post! No hair products are needed, but be sure to have some free time and patience.

Homemade Spam Sushi

I've been enjoying my subscription to the Try The World box! Here is my recipe for Spam Sushi: Teriyaki Spam, Avocado, Carrots, Rice, Seaweed and Soy Sauce.
It's quite simple, just heat some rice, cut a carrot, avocado and spam into small pieces as desired and roll.

Create and Thrive - Photo a Day Challange

I was a little uninspired in August in regards to my Instagram. Mostly I was just taking photos of food and my cat. I decided that after being inspired by the Modcloth' s Summer Challenge I wanted to  do another one, I did a quick search and found Jess' Create & Thrive's Photo Challenge! I liked the challenges and I had a lot of fun taking the photos. I may do another challenge later on, if I find one just as inspiring. Thanks for the fun photo challenge Jess!

 I was really excited when Jess from Create & Thrive chose my "Treasured" photo as one of her favorites. I decided to show my favorite vintage rings. My rings from left to right:

Improved About Page!

I've been working on a "better" blog throughout this Summer. Besides working on improving the text and images of my blog posts, I decided to focus on my About page next. Luckily enough, I saw the DIY Writing Workshop by Sarah Grear! I am so happy that I attended this workshop, I learned a lot about writing for a blog and met some great people and Etsy sellers there!

In addition to my new About page, I also added places to submit your email into my new mailing list. Check it out, here! I've also added an Instagram button on the right side of the blog. Shockingly, it's the app I use the most and I didn't have a link to it on this blog.
