Braided up this little number on le baby sister, based on this photo. It is now my favorite and I want to wear it everyday. We tried two different versions of the style, both super easy to do. It’s a little difficult to see in the photo, but the baby braid is off to the side of her head, and looks just different enough to catch your eye. Love!

Hairstyle 9/30 Retro Rockabilly

rockabilly hair and makeup

I finally got my act together and did a new style for the series. Admittedly I was a little more interested in the makeup portion of this look, but I really love the hair too. I’m thinking this would be perfect for the 4th with curls piled high on the head.

To get this look I used Maybelline’s gel eyeliner in blackest black and their ColorSensational lipstick in Are You Red-dy. Badass bandana acquired from a thrift store or somewhere equally random.

I Love You, Phillip Morris

I feel like the general population doesn’t know about this movie and that’s a shame, because it’s a really, really good movie. It’s based on the true story of a straight man turned gay man turnedĀ con-artist, who falls in love with his cellmate and the rest is history. Jim Carey and Ewan McGregor are both SO GOOD in it! I just saw it last week and I’m about ready to watch it again. I can’t post the trailer here (blah youtube/hollywood), so click here to be enticed and then pop some popcorn because it’s on Netflix Instant right now! But do yourself a favor and don’t look up the true story until after the film.

Let me know what you think!
