“How do you get your hair like that?”

I’m shocked and flattered that some of you have asked how I curl my hair. I’ve always been dreadful at hair styling, so I’m ecstatic that I’ve finally figured something out! I made a little video showing how I do it. It’s quick and easy. I have yet to find a product that will keep my […]

DIY Wooden Snowflake Ornament
