Weekend Notes

Let's start with the most exciting part first.

An easy new hairstyle! A super easy one. The messy French twist.

I asked Ian last night if he thought I looked pretty and romantic. He responded by saying he was fairly sure he had married the most girly girl in the world.
    


I got the inspiration from this photo set on Pinterest.

Messy French Twist Tutorial
Pin It!

Here's the tutorial so you can try it for yourself! I used maybe 7-8 bobby pins and stuck them straight into the twist as pictured in photo six above. My biggest recommendation: tease that top section well! It makes you look pretty and romantic and French.

Maybe I am the girliest girl in the world.

In other exciting news, I woke up super early Saturday morning and snuck out of bed so excited because it just hit me that I might be able to make Carolina Charm's Easy Pumpkin Bread. I knew for sure I had canned pumpkin and I was pretty sure I had a box of cake mix as well. I did have that mix, however it was just half a box of yellow cake mix -- so I improvised by using a smaller loaf pan and just using half of the can of pumpkin. When Ian got out of bed about 30 minutes later, the house smelled heavenly! It was so easy and tasty right out of the oven topped with pumpkin cream cheese.


Due to icky weather on Saturday, Ian and I decided to forego his little birthday adventure (hopefully this Saturday will be a better day?) and he still is in the dark about what it will entail. So excited! 

We had a very, VERY lazy weekend around the house but I did get some new bangles made. After the On A String tutorial on Thursday night, I couldn't wait to try out a few more styles. The top left shows the ones I made Thursday, and the other four on the top right are the new additions. My next one to make will need to be a pink one that I can pair with the white and green bangles. Or even with the red. I'm sort of a nut about loving red and pink together.


So that's it in my neck of the woods. I've got a little travel to the coast planned this week for work, which I never mind!

  18. I just discovered the canned pumpkin/cake mix wonder, too. I used a carrot cake mix, and, not happy to leave it alone, I added an egg, chocolate chips and chopped walnuts, then turned the mixture into muffins. Dave, who claimed to only like bran muffins, thought these were really tasty.

  20. I feel so blessed again in my marriage after Doctor Oku brought back my husband that separated with me for good 3 mounths. Am Jessica Butler by name from los angeles. Even though i have mouths all over my body, it won't be enough to thank Doctor Oku for his help upon my life. My husband separated with me for the 3 months and have been in pains and agony without him. So, i searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out not until i meant Doctor Oku who i contacted online. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 24 to 48 hours as far that my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a spell for me and my husband called me exactly when Doctor Oku said. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 months. Everyone out there reading my article that needs help should contact him... Email: okutemple@gmail.com or whatsApp him +2347053113465

  23. After being in relationship with him for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: drosedebamenspellhome@gmail.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CAN NEVER STOP TALKING ABOUT YOU SIR HIS EMAIL ADDRESS IS:drosedebamenspellhome@gmail.com CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEM
