My "Research"

Whenever I am perusing thru pinterest or fashion magazines,
I call it “my research”.
It sounds very important.
As though I am bettering myself and others at the same time.
It allows me to justify the mounds of dishes or loads of laundry I could be doing instead.
It’s a WIN WIN.
{Or at least that’s what I like to tell myself}.
Well with that being said,
my “research” tells me that the pretty braids I am seeing just about everywhere,
are HOT!
So effortless yet chic.

  2. I am loving all those pretty braids too, now if only I could just figure out how to do that with my hair, I'd be all set.

  3. I am LOVING braids right now! I'm not coordinated enough to do them myself, but I think they are sooo pretty!

    Gorgeous! Love that slanted single braid along the back…wow! I just braided my daughter's hair this afternoon and thought to myself that I need to put one in my own hair this week! 🙂 Thanks for the additional inspiration. Carry on with your very important research! 🙂

  5. Very cute. I just tried to do my hair two days ago but my braids are insideout or something. Maby I will try again. Wish I had a little girl to do fun stuff to, But I am blessed with 2 boys.
