No Heat Curls

So this has been around the internet and looked easy and simple so I thought I might as well try it. It worked OK,  even though the curls were fun around my face…the back of my hair didn’t really curl. Too bad. 

Instructions: you just take one of those hair bands (like the volleyball/runners use), wrap it around your head then take DRY strands of hair and tuck them in. I took a shower, air dried it and wrapped it. This is how mine turned out:


The back is super cute to me and I’m looking for a black band to use for daytime wear. I’ll just wear it out for the day, sleep on it, then the next day wear it curly. 🙂

Nice change from a ponytail- can I get an amen?!

This look reminds me of the 40’s. Which I love.


And…..the finished product:


The curls won’t stay all day for me, but it would be a fun look for a night out or wedding. Go ahead and try it. 🙂

Fare weather health fan? Totally.

I am so embracing this GORGEOUS weather we’ve gotten today and which is suppose to continue into the weekend. (great pictures coming if that’s true)

Isn’t it weird how when the weather gets beautiful we want to eat lighter and healthier? Makes me smile…and brings me to say that I have no shame in declaring that I am now (finally!) jumping on the bandwagon, with everyone else I know, and try to eat healthy. (until late September)

A fare weather health fan? Totally. Thus….breakfast:

Couple that with the knowledge (thanks to Oprah) that grapefruit is basically a super fruit and also helps with aging…you have my healthy/great tasting breakfast. Only problem? I made way too much. I will cut the amount in half next time.

*and just for fun (because you have to have motivation to eat healthy) I declared my favorite yellow flower bowl to be my parfait bowl.


Ruby Grapefruit, Low fat granola and Nancy’s non fat Vanilla yogurt. I sprinkled a bit of sugar cause the yogurt was just a bit sour to me. I have a sugar addiction and have no plan on quitting.


Can I just say that having long hair rocks! I have had very short hair (Audrey Hepburn short) and like it that way even though the upkeep is a lot. But a while ago I decided to grow my hair out, and even though it’s taken FOREVER, it is just now getting to the length that I can fool around with. I am having so much fun doing things… like side buns:

*please ignore that my face is an obvious shade darker than my neck. We live in the Northwest. Enough said.
