Upgrade to a Bride's Maid!

{TGIF} Thank Goodness It’s…Follicle

Follicle?! Yeah that’s kinda weak.  But in my defense we are going to “oooh” and “aaah” over hair stuff today.  I would be more than happy to accept F words you find more acceptable. 🙂 (No bad words. I didn’t really need to tell you that, did I?)

Oh and for the record ~ I hope you’ve been enjoying the gift guides this week, themed around the lyrics of “A Few of My Favorite Things”! It’s been a lot of fun so far, but I decided to take today off and tackle the rest of the song/gifts this weekend.  Are you familiar with the song? Interested in guest posting? Email me, I’d love to have you!

OK onto the hair inspiration…
Most of these are from ban.do ~ if you haven’t been shopping there then rush right over!
Isn’t the red hair gor-geous?

Some pieces that are a little more ‘bridal’:

How are you wearing your hair on the big day? It’s actually a bigger decision than most brides initially think! You have to consider the style of your dress, what type of headpiece/veil you’d like to wear, what looks good on you, and weather (who wants hair sticking to a sweaty neck or going limp after an hour?) 

I suggest making an inspiration folder and then Right Click-Save to your heart’s content!


I’m throwing in a DIY project….and it has nothing to do with follicles! Geez that title was just stinky from the get-go, huh? Anyway.  This requires minimal materials, is very easy, and the result is versatile. Perrrrrfect.

Yarn Covered Chargers



See how cute? Great for your reception as well as home-hosted events.
Don’t forget the details at your engagement party and/or bridal shower!

Whew.  I hope as you all read this you are headed into/in the middle of a great weekend! Who’s braving the mall? Me! I also have high hopes of getting a haircut/highlights, working on some projects, and getting to our family Christmas party Saturday night in one piece. AND I want to walk around my neighborhood and take pictures of all the crappy Christmas lights to share with you! See you back here Monday.

OH, PS: Please come visit me on Tumblr! It’s such fun to turn off the wedding chatter sometimes and just dive into other good stuff – fashion, recipes, celebrity gossip, interior design, etc.  You don’t have to have an account to check me out. 🙂
