How to French Braid {With a Video}

Here's a super simple hairstyle that you can make if you know how to do a french braid!
You can just use a ponytail holder or scrunchie to hold it, but we like to use a Lilla Rose Flexi Clip. This is a size small Open Flower Jet clip.

My mom and I made this video to show you how to french braid if you've never done it before. It's not the best, but hopefully it will be helpful to someone! (If you're reading this in an email, please click through to the blog to see the video. Thanks!)

Let me know what you think about our first video efforts! :)

What I Wore {At the Lake}

This past weekend, we went camping.  We had so much fun fishing, swimming, grilling, eating s'mores, and playing games by the campfire! Here's what I wore yesterday: 
Top: So Brand
Undershirt: From a discount clothing store
Skirt: Aeropostale
Flip flops: From a local department store
It started to get hot, so I twisted up my hair with a Flexi Clip. (This is a large Freestyle Tiara--it goes with anything!)
Hope you have a great week!

Fun Times

The past couple of weeks have been very busy!!!  One of the highlights of my weekend was that we able to put up our pool.  It's an early birthday present for my sister Abigail.  It so perfect for summer when the heat becomes simply unbearable!
My precious siblings were simply thrilled that we finally have our own pool!
A couple weeks ago we celebrated my brother Ian's 11th birthday at my grandparent's house.  After that, we went bowling, which was awesome!
This past weekend, we went to my other grandparents' house and enjoyed celebrating my sweet grandma's birthday.  I also so enjoyed spending some time with my cousins who we don't see nearly often enough!
Have a wonderful day!

What I Wore {red, white, and blue}

Undershirt: Downeast Basics
Top: From a discount clothing store
Skirt: Zulily
Shoes: Montego Bay Club brand

It was a beautiful day, but the weather was pretty hot! Much as I love this skirt, I think it may be prove to be more suitable for a cooler day. :)  
Also, I had to wear my glasses, which I greatly dislike!  (My contact solution was causing chemical burns on my eyes, so I am stuck with glasses for two weeks.)

I again tried to curl my hair, but apparently I still need some more practice.  One section of my hair absolutely refused to look the way I wanted it look!  You can't see the worst of it because I pinned it to the side of my head.  :) Oh well.  I guess I'm just too much of a perfectionist, at least when it comes to hair!  Sometimes you've got to stop trying so hard and just relax, you know?  ;)
