“What God is like to Him I serve?
What Saviour like to mine?
O never let me from Thee swerve,
For truly I am Thine.
“My thankful mouth shall speak Thy praise,
My tongue shall talk of Thee;
On high my heart O do Thou raise
For what Thou’st done for me.”
– Anne Bradstreet
Today’s tutorial is for the Fan bun/updo. Recently, this has been my go-to hair style for days when I want something a little nicer than a basic french twist but don’t have a lot of time. It’s a soft, easy look that will work on all hair types.
23Thus saith the LORD: “Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
neither let the mighty man glory in his might; let not the rich man glory in his riches. 24But let him that glorieth glory in this: that he understandeth and knoweth Me,
that I am the LORD who exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth;
for in these things I delight,” saith the LORD.
This is a pretty basic style, the figure-eight bun. Even though it is simple, I keep coming back to it for an everyday style. This also works really well for wearing hats. There are many tutorials for this style, but this is the way I do it; I’m sure someone else has come up with this method before. One caution, however: this ‘do eats pins! You’ll need at least moderately long hair for this to work, but if you have shorter hair, it will work as a half-up. Continue reading →
1Bless the LORD, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name! 2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits– 3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities, Who healeth all thy diseases, 4Who redeemeth thy life from destruction,
Who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies, 5Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things, so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
I’m back!! I think almost everything is fixed, and our internet is way faster now, too. Yay!!
I call this bun the daisy bun because it reminds me of how you make “daisy chains” out of string. This also makes a fabulous hair stick bun.
“3According as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness,
through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be
partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”
This passage is from my devotions last week. I really wanted to post the whole chapter! One thing that jumped out to me was that little word “all.” God has given us all we need for life and godliness. I may know that in my head, but my question for myself is, by my actions, what is not part of that all? (I hope that makes sense). As christians we may say that we’re trusting Christ for the big things like forgiveness for sin, finances, or a future spouse, but what about the little things like how to respond to the people and situations? And to what am I looking to fill that gap in my faith?

This is not the tutorial I had planned for today. I’ve been watching the new Emma so I was going to do that style, but it was not to be. I’ll try again later! These pictures are from before I cut my hair, by the way.
This is my never-fail, I-forgot-I-had-to-leave-5-minutes-ago-and-my-hair’s-still-in-a-yucky-thing-held-up-with-a-giant-clip ‘do. Yes, even hair fairies have days like that. You only need one hair tie, ribbon optional. And it’s really fast! I can do this style in the car without a mirror. Even if you’re driving, it only takes two or three red lights. Continue reading →
This tutorial is for how to wear your hair down. Now, I know what you ladies are thinking . . . “Isn’t that pretty obvious?! Just brush and go, right?” Well, you could do that, but it won’t stay nice. I got the idea for today’s style while watching ice skating during the Olympics last time around. One of the girls had long hair, and no matter how much she whirled and twirled, her hair stayed perfect. I figured out that this is what she must be doing. In about 20 seconds, here is the way to wear your hair down so it stays neat all day.
1. Part your hair. Separate a chunk from each side. I clipped the rest of my hair out of the way so you could see what I’m doing, but you don’t have to.
2. Clip the two sections together at the nape of your neck under the rest of your hair with a basic clip. If you’d rather, you could use a ponytail holder instead. If you clipped the rest up, let it down to cover the clip.
Sorry, I don’t have a finished product picture. Later this week, I’ll show you a way to dress up this style.
Ok, that is a goofy name, but I didn’t know what else to call this style. I’m open to suggestions!
This easy style is from the scene when Emma is consoling Harriet about her “loss” of Mr. Elton; this scene also features one of my favorite extras from the movie, an adorable spaniel puppy. How could a girl’s spirits not be lifted?
