My Stella & Dot Trunk Show!

Hi To All My Followers Out There! I just wanted to give you an exciting heads up about my Stella & Dot Trunk Show! For all of you who don't know, Stella & Dot is a Francisco based social selling company that creates flexible entrepreneurial opportunities for women. Our boutique-style jewelry and accessories line is available exclusively through in-home Trunk Shows by Independent Stylists and online.  

I have decided to have my very own show for all of my friends and family out there. I don't want anyone to feel obligated to purchase, I just want to put this out there in case you needed Christmas Gifts or you wanted to purchase something special for YOU! My show will be on November 9 and will run through November 30. If you would like to browse or shop you can go here. This is my direct link for my own show!

Sock Bun Tutorial

Hello Everyone! Happy Monday! As promised I am here to share with you my "Sock Bun Tutorial"! I love sock buns because you can add it to so many of your looks. I love to wear it to work out and to go out, it definitely is a versatile hair style! Sorry about the picture quality guys, I was on my own with this one!
So here we go!
All the products that I will be using will be listed below!

1. Dove Dry Shampoo 2. Suave Luxe Style Infusion Hairspray 3. Hairbrush 4. Teasing Comb 5. Bobby Pins 6. Hair Tie 7. Donut for your hair or you can make a homemade one from a sock

I first like to start with day old hair because it just seems to work better because your hair is more textured. I then brush my hair out and add some dry shampoo just to give your hair a little more lift for the bun.

After adding dry shampoo get a hair tie and place all of your hair into a ponytail. It can vary on where you place it on your head. I like to place the pony high because I always like my buns right on top. Totall…
