5 Step Messy Twist Tutorial - IHOD

Brielle Brenner is a talented friend of mine who does hair and makeup for all types of events here in Atlanta. We got together and came up with some easy tutorials to share with you!

You won’t believe how easy this 5 step Messy Hair Twist is. Head on over to Style Me Pretty Living to see for yourself:)

Chelsey came over when we were to shoot the looks and we had a little party in my living room!

Hope this helps you out this holiday season with being brave enough to try your own looks:)

La Mer Collections - IHOD
Sweater Cape: c/o Kiki LaRue // Denim: c/o Articles of Society // Boots: J. Crew (similar)

Okay a few things…

1)  have had these red wine jeans on repeat because a deep red is actually a really versatile and fun color to work with – especially in November and December when you are feeling a little festive;) Articles of Society denim fits me so well, is comfortable, and affordable…all I need in a pair of jeans! You check out their full line here, #ShowYourAOS.

2) I am pressing pause on the blog at the end of the week for a much needed time to focus on this special time of year with my family. I will have a New Years Resolution post, but other than that, its a few weeks of quiet. I will of course be sharing peeks at our Christmas over on instagram if you want to keep in touch there! What is your favorite Christmas tradition you are looking forward to? I have so many it may require a separate post…

3) The super sweet peeps over at LaMer Collections sent this beautiful watch and let me tell you, its pretty fantastic. Its an all in one wrap watch that makes it look like you perfectly matched and stacked your bracelets;) They are making dreams come true and offering one to a reader as well! I already can’t wait to draw a winner. Good luck to all!

December in Atlanta has been a rainy one, but the sun came out this week and we headed to Bottoms Christmas Tree Farm for a Hot Cocoa party. Mandy Kellogg Rye, styling extraordinaire and super fun friend, organized this shoot for  Style Me Pretty Living (see the full gallery there). My children were in happy world land with animals around every turn, hot cocoa and popcorn, and new friends to play with:) Kristin of The Hunted Interior‘s daughter Chloe immediately tackled Veronica in a bear hug and they were friends just like that. Amanda of Wonderfully Lost has a little guy Gabriel’s age and they bonded over hauling Christmas trees:)
Felt very lucky to be a part of this with my little ones!
