If it ever seems like I’m bragging about my hair…I am.  I don’t mean to be obnoxious, but I spent the first 29 years of my life having no idea what to do with it.  I’ve finally kinda figured it out, and the novelty has not yet worn off.  Here is an example of why:

wpid-wp-1410221577616.jpegOn the right, you will see my hair as a 21-year old college graduate.  Pretty dull in every sense of the word.  On the left, however, you have blonde curls.  Everything I’ve ever wanted on my head, now realized!

I also feel at liberty to brag about it because I really can’t take credit – it’s all thanks to some wonderful guru on Pinterest (link here!).  I’ll just add two things to her excellent tutorial:  1) my hair never holds curling iron curl.  Like EVER.  This is the only way, but it works like a charm.  2) it works like a charm only when my hair is almost dry before I wrap it.  Otherwise, it won’t ever thoroughly dry and the weight of my wet hair pulls out the curl.

And of course, you can find this beautiful necklace online at Rahab’s Rope – it’s one of my favorite pieces we carry. The skirt is from Francesca’s Boutiqe, and the blouse from H&M.
