Disco Inferno

Incase you missed it on Twitter (seriously I LOVE YOU ALL,) last week was my birthday :)

My sister AND my birthday to be exact! If you have been reading for a while (if you are new, HI!!) then you know that my sis and I have the same birthday, 2 years apart. I love her. She's my bestest friend. And she's awful purdy, see : 


For our birthday we wanted to have an "Anchorman" pool party... You know, 70's awesomeness :)

Well, afer weeks and weeks of +100° temps and gorgeous blue skies... The day of our birthday party was cold (80°) and rainy... WAHH! So we moved the party inside and changed my living room into a disco. Yes, we had a champagne fountain. Yes, it was full of pink champagne. Yes, I had like 14 bottles. Yes, it was a TON of fun :)























Olivia, Y U NOOO in any pictures?

Lucy's View

Lucy is LOVING school! It took a couple weeks to adjust to the new schedule, but she seems to be absolutely flourishing now! Her teacher said that she has seen HUGE improvement in her listening skills and behavior. She also said that she was extremely smart and strong willed ;) heehee!

We could not be more pleased with Monte Cassino, so far. We love it! I mean I knew we would, its such a wonderful school. Lucy is THIRD generation there! My mom went there along with her sister AND my sis and I went there! Its so great because so many of the teachers and faculty still around and remember my sister and me. I love that :)

Lucy's teacher is fantastic and Lu just adores her. Every morning she races down the hall to her classroom and says, "Good morning, Mrs. Capmbell!" with the biggest grin on her face :) Mrs. Campbell is awesome at keeping us updated with the "happenings" during the school day. Every evening she post the daily schedule and some pictures she has taken through out the day. Its great to get a little glimpse into the kids day... And now you can too!

Drum Roll Please... Its about Hair

Here it is, the long awaited tutorial on how to put in hair extensions and do the perfect curl-down! I know y'all have been on the edge of your seats :P Ha!

Clearly I like to talk, a lot. I had to split up the video into 3 sections and if you really watch all three of them, I will be impressed! I am slightly very long winded :)

StepONE - The Extensions
Here I show you how to clip in your temporary extensions. If you don't have extensions or you don't plan on using them you can skip this one :)


StepTWO - The Curl-Down
Once I have the extensions in I show you how I achieve the curl-down look. I think this method works really well!


StepTHREE - The Fix
How I fix and set my curls. You can fix yours anyway you like, this is just my preferred method :)


And just in case you think I take myself too seriously...


There you have it. I hope you still want to be my friend after seeing that. Pretty much, I don't want to be my friend after seeing that! Haha! If you want to know what Hair I use, maybe you can ask Lindsey. She might remember... Maybe. Lindsey??
