Hello!

Thanks so much for stopping by my dear friends!  I wanted to first talk about easy summer hairstyles to try (mostly as a challenge for myself because I am the WORST with experimenting with my hair).  BUT… I chose hairstyles that are so easy that even I can do them!  (And I found pics for different hair lengths!)

One of the ways I am going to spruce up my messy up-dos this summer is with this bomb hair pin (c/o) from Kitsch (as seen in the first pic – which is me!)  It makes a simple, haphazard bun look polished and chic.  (This one is super simple – which I love – but there are tons of more ornate ones too!)  This hair pin will be on major repeat FYI!

It is one of my goals to be able to learn how to do this!  So darling!

Quick thought before you go…  So my dad is pretty amazing.  He is a kind and loving father, husband and friend and also ridiculously smart in pretty much everything.  I feel lucky every day to be his offspring and to able to get his wise words and advice any time I want.  Well last week, I called him because I was feeling like there was a part of my life that I so want to be successful, but so discouraged that it wasn’t.  (See in all honesty, when I have really put my mind to something, and put in the time, and the blood/sweat/tears, I have always made it work.)  He told me that sometimes, despite how hard you work, and how brilliant your idea is, and how wonderful your ‘product’ is, it isn’t enough.  There are so many factors outside of your control that will make or break what you have to offer.  So, suck it up, don’t take it personally, and if you love it, keep on going.

Here’s to keeping on and keeping your chin up.

Much love my dear friends,
