The Small Things BlogÂ teaches us how to create a lovely Dutch braid along the hairline to give our style some oomph without taking hours to complete. Cute ways to keep the hair out of my face without resorting to yet another ponytail or butterfly clip are spectacular in my book.
First, Love MaeganÂ shows us some of her favorite floral pants for the summer. I might consider wearing some of the pairs she’s posted, but I have a feeling I’d have a hard time choosing a shirt and accessories for them. Would you wear them?
Thrifty DÃ©cor ChickÂ tried out a new kind of paint that doesn’t require much prep work at all, and her project turned out beautifully. She layered the paints and then used some sandpaper to give the wood a distressed look in this tutorial.
