seven hours
I know I fell off the radar for the past couple of weeks, but I’m getting myself and posts and hairstyles together, and will be back officially and regularly on Monday.

In the mean time, how amazing is this shot pieced together over seven hours?

Yay giveaway time! This week I get to hand off 100 postcards from Print Runner, a printing services company based out of Southern California. This is a great little prize pack for a newly engaged bride (sent your Save the Dates yet?), a small business looking for some free advertising, or just someone who wants to shower everyone they know with a surprise postcard (seriously, how nice is it to get snail mail from a loved one?).

At that point I’ll choose the winner via random.org, and will announce it on the bottom of this blog post.

Hairstyle 7/30: Side Rope

twisted hair
twisted rope braid on long brown hair

This style rules because it takes all of 60 seconds, and is different enough to warrent a second look.

Divide hair into two sections, twist sections in the same direction, twist together in the opposite direction, then braid the bottom to hold the twist.

Hairstyle 5/30: Pulled Back Bed Head

long brown hair

I realize this probably shouldn’t count as a ‘hairstyle’, but I’m behind on these posts and a girl’s gotta catch up somehow! Plus, I never wear my hair like this so it counts.

I wore this to my parent’s house for Easter dinner. I’m not even sure that I brushed it, which is pretty standard protocol for me.
