How to curl your hair.... with a sock!

Ok sweet new idea on how to curl you hair with no (or minimal) heat. You can curl your hair... with a sock. I know you are going to think that I am absolutely insane but it really does work. It reminds me of beach waves, which is a style I have been searching for lately. You need to try it, it really works!

Here are the  step by step instructions on how to make this work.
First take a sock (it can be one that is missing its pair, or that you just don't wear) and cut off the toe of the. Now roll the sock into a ring, depending on your hair's thickness you might need to roll more than one sock together.

Now put your dry hair into a high ponytail, as high on top of your head as you can get it. I flip my head over and gather the hair to put it up.  Secure the hair with a hair bow.

The next step is to spray just the hair in your ponytail with water. Generally I do this hairstyle after I take a shower at night and it saves a step. Also instead of spraying with water you can spray it with Beach Spray, (which you can get the recipe for on my blog by going to the link above) it gives it more texture and doubles as a hairspray too!  You do not want it to be wet so just spray it until it is damp, or if you are doing this after you get out of the shower let your hair dry some before putting it up into a bun. Remember you want it to dry overnight so if it is too wet it will not dry completely.

Now grab your rolled up sock and put your ponytail through the hole. Pull the sock straight up to the tip of your ponytail. With the hair that is sticking out spread it all the way around the sock evenly, and tuck the ends under.  Start rolling the sock down so your hair is being fed through the hole, then up and around the sock. Continue rolling until you reach the base of your ponytail
Now simply roll all of your hair onto the sock until you reach the base of your ponytail.  Try to keep the ponytail straight up while you roll so that the hair is taught.

When you are finished rolling the hair onto the sock you have a  bun on top of your head. There is no need to secure it with anything else.  It will stay put perfectly just the way it is. In the morning take down the bun and take out the hair bow. If it is still wet, flip over your head and blow dry the bottom (it prevents any friz from being as visible, and adds volume). I like to put spray on gel and curl definer in my hair to hold in the curls. Your hair might end up being kind of big, if you like it that way then your done! If your like me then you could take the front sections of your hair, pin them back with a hair claw, and then straighten your bangs. Simply Amazing!

I couldn't believe this idea when i saw it, but I have tried it for the past two days and it looks amazing. I hope you like it! :)

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

My Petal Club

A new box!  And a PERIOD subscription box at that!  I love finding new boxes to try out, especially when they are this affordable!  This box is normally $6.99 per month, but if you use the discount code "SUMMER" on, this box will be only $3.50!  And let's be honest, one box of pads/tampons is usually more expensive than that, so why not give it a try??

So this box primarily consists of just the period products with very few extras.  This isn't one of the present, feel-good kind of boxes, it just provides you with the necessary products to get through the month, at an affordable price.
Step One The first thing you do on their website is choose the combination of products you will need.  Be warned, you aren't given as much of a selection if you order through Cratejoy like I did.  It worked totally fine and I still got the products I needed, but I like choice!  So I suggest going straight through their website.  You are going to get 30 products total…

Country Concert Lookbook

Early this fall I will be going to a Brad Paisley AND an Avett Brothers concert!  So when I found out King Ranch Saddle Shop was looking for inspiration when it comes to country style I had to share my ideas!  It is the dog days of summer, with hot days and cool nights here in the mountains, so I tried to create looks to fit all weather and styles!

Sassy  For the budding flower child who needs to show a bit of a wilder side and have fun for the night!   This is a crop top and basic jean shorts, which could be subbed for light wash ripped skinnies if the venue is going to be cooler (which is actually what I wore to a Flogging Molly concert last fall!). Crop Top: American Eagle Shorts: Hollister Flower Crown: Claire's

Sweet  This is for the sweet girly girl who still want to show their country side.  It is a simple white lace top dress, to which I have added a red flannel for those cool Summer nights.  The flannel could be tied around your waist during the day, or substituted for a d…
