The Big Chop

Posted by Honor on Thursday, August 29, 2013, In : Life At Home 
Well..... I did it. I chopped off all my hairs. It only took me 27 years to work up enough courage to do it (first year doesn't count as I was a baldy).

Wait before you all yell and scream at me 'Why???? But WHYYYYY!!!!!!?????'.... (as my husband may or may not of done).... I have been WANTING to do this for years. Really, years. But change is kinda scary right?! But good. But scary.

So blame it on the pregnancy hormones. My violent heat flashes. Hours spent on pinterest looking at this

DIY Perfect High Pony & How to Capture Bangs

Posted by Honor on Thursday, July 4, 2013, In : Beauty 

  Alright, you caught me. I'm a mom. And with that comes lots and lots of 'mom-ism'. Mom sayings, mom humor and yes the mom uniform. For me? It's a plain shirt, jeans and a cardi with my hair in either a high pony or messy top knot. I do love a good pony. But alas alas I seem to always be struggling with my bangs. Do I keep em? Do I trim em? Grow em out? What to do what to do. Well, nothing over night can be done, so I guess I just have to figure out a way to deal with them. Up until recently...

Posted by Honor on Thursday, June 27, 2013, In : Accessories 

    I felt like whipping up something pretty and sparkly today and this ridiculously simple an' easy diy definitely did the trick. Totally satisfied my girly itch.

All sad and lonely. But ahHA no more, no more! Here are the deets. You will need to pick up a pack of the hair pins with a fla...

DIY Braided Fishtail Headband

Posted by Honor on Wednesday, April 24, 2013, In : Beauty 


Here is my tweak on a crazy popular hairstyle right now, the braided headband. Nothing really that crazy, I just threw in a couple of fishtail braids. I think I actually prefer a fishtail now. If I braid my hair with a couple of these, while it's still damp, after it drys I'm left with some pretty (and natural looking) waves. If you haven't already, check out my braided fishtail crown DIY, it's pretty popular. Or go here to see the rest of my beauty diys. Now onto the tut

DIY Two Minute Braided Hairstyle (It's A Lifesaver!)

Posted by Honor on Wednesday, March 6, 2013, In : Beauty 


Whats a girl gonna do when she only has two minutes to get ready before she has to make a mad dash out the door lugging screaming baby in a carseat, corralling a mouthy two year old, cursing the dog for almost tripping her down the stairs, holding an extra diaper in her mouth and trying to remember where she put the darn keys????

This is what I do. This is what I do when I haven't showered, haven't brushed my hair, may or may have forgot to put deodorant on and definitely have a baby food ...

DIY Double Braid Boho Side Bun

Posted by Honor on Thursday, January 24, 2013, In : Beauty 


  This has gotta be my all time favorite braided hairstyle. And let me tell ya, I've had at least 2 feet of hair my entire life, so there have been quite a few braided dos. 
  Boho dos can be more difficult to maintain than you think. I love the whole 'wind swept/slept-in/party-all-night' look, I just try to steer clear of the 'homeless' thang. This do does have the boho braids down pat, but also keeps you looking chic because of it's clever twist (more on that soon). I also have bangs and a ...

Posted by Honor on Monday, January 21, 2013, In : Crafter's Toolbox 

  Here it is, the last part of the diy hair comb series. Quite a journey eh? We went all across the diy board. From wire wrapped crystals to neon nylon cording to feathers. Even though this is the last post of this series, I assure you that hair combs are here to stay... at least on this noggin anyway. Embellished hair combs have always been in my fashion repertoire and always will be. So I thought it would be fun to share two hair combs of the past. One from my bridal shower and the other fr...

DIY Embellished Hair Comb: Parts Five and Six

Posted by Honor on Thursday, January 17, 2013, In : Crafter's Toolbox 


Sick of hair comb ideas yet? No? Good! Cuz here are two more beauties. Both equally simple and fab. If you haven't yet, make sure to check out parts one/two and three/four.

A recap on what I am doing here. At the beginning of the new year I was a bit bogged down reminiscing about sugar plums and faux snow frosted ornaments. In other words I was feeling a bit low because the NY signals the end of my favorite time of the year. My creative juices weren't flowing. They were more like syurp.

DIY Embellished Hair Comb: Part One and Two

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, January 15, 2013, In : Crafter's Toolbox 

  I gave myself a mini craft challenge this weekend. A little homework per say. I find that if I get a bogged down with stress or life and I just can't get those creative juices a flowin.. I  buckle down and step it up (oh boy...how many cliche sayings did I just fit into that statement???). Any whoser,  just like how actors and singers have voice warm ups, we crafters have warm ups too. This was a great mini warm up, as now my creative muscles are are loose and limber.

DIY Simple Ribbon Headband

Posted by Honor on Thursday, November 1, 2012, In : Accessories 
I love scarves and wear them any chance I can. As soon as there is the slightest crisp to the air I am wrapping that sucker around my neck. Here is my dilemma. I have long hair and if I wear a scarf, especially if it is a chunky knit, my hair soon turns into a tangled mess. Right there at the nape of my neck should be call 'rat-ville' for the nest that is created. Ouch!
 So what to do? A sleek little top knot or messy ballerina bun is my go-to. But that can get a little boring, so here is a...

DIY Sequin Scarf

Posted by Honor on Monday, October 8, 2012, In : Accessories 

    So this DIY really falls more under the 'refashion' category, which is co' cuz sometimes you just want to give what you already own a little sprucing up!
     I recently picked up this scarf because I really dug the busy fall print. It is huge! Which I love. Who cares what your outfit looks like when you have on a fabulous blanket? Wait, I meant scarf. I mean can you even see my baby spit up shirt under here?! No!
    The scarf is fine just the way it is, but what girl doesn't want more bli...

DIY Leather Leaf Hair Pin

Posted by Honor on Wednesday, August 29, 2012, In : Accessories 


Found myself longing for fall this week. Fall is fabulous don't you think? The weather is just lovely. You can wear coats, scarves, sweaters, boots, leggings and knit caps. Who doesn't love a great pair of boots over leggings with a cozy sweater and scarf?! There are also so many great fall activities like apple picking, pumpkin carving and baking. Not to mention the decorating... oh the decorating! Halloween and Thanksgiving are such fun holidays to decorate for. I already have a huge runnin...

So guess what we are doing this weekend?

Yep attending a good ol baby shower. It should be lots of fun. The hubs and I really like this couple and are so glad that they are joining the club of parenthood. Have you joined yet? The initiation is kind of rough but the life long benefits are totally worth it ;)
