Tips for Beautiful Hair

I love trying new hair styles and sometimes I get a little excited when I schedule a cut.   Everyone knows hairstylists love to cut hair...it's what they do.  So last week I gave my stylist permission to cut off most of my hair.  I love the style but I'm not used to having my hair this short and neither is my husband. So this is how I came up with the following tip.

 If you cut your hair shorter than you like, when it gets to that sweet spot that you simply love, take a photo with your cell phone.  When you go back to your stylist, you have the exact look you want with your face, not a celebrity or hair style magazine photo. I've shared this idea with alot of friends and they loved it.


When you wash your hair and towel dry, just blot your hair, never fluff it with the towel.   Pets love to be fluffed after a bath, our hair, not so much.  It can break your hair and cause frizz.  It takes longer to blot but it's worth it to keep breakage and frizzy hair in check.

Got the static in your hair?  After putting lotion on your hands, run them over your hair and it will prevent your hair from being out of control.

This is  my favorite tip. If you have limp hair that is hard to style (like me), flip your hair upside down to blow dry. When dry,  tease the roots gently with a fine tooth comb and use your fingers to style your hair.  This keeps you from combing or brushing out all of the volume.
  I tease and spray with hair spray and let it completely dry.  My hair looks like an explosion took place but when you get it tamed, it looks awesome.  When my kids were young, one morning I almost walked out with my teased hair. My son said mom, look at your hair.  We had the biggest laugh about my big hair. 

Let me know what works for you when styling your hair.  I love trying new hair products and I love any tip that makes it easier to get from zero to fabulous.

Weight Loss Goals

As of today I have lost 46 pounds.  I have kept the weight off for 2 years but I am spinning my wheels and not able to lose the other 40 pounds I need to lose so.....I joined a 90 day low carb challenge started by lowcarbtravelor.   Here's the link

The Challenge started yesterday so I am 2 days in.  I decided to go back to low carb eating because my food cravings are terrible.  I had been watching everything I eat but I wasn't losing weight.
I can tell when sugar creeps back in my diet because I can eat and eat and never I'm never satisfied.  You remember the commercial, bet you can't eat just one, well that was my current situation.

It will take me a few days to get my system back to the point that my cravings are under control.  I had been eating lots of fruits and realized that even natural sugar is sugar.  So I am so longer indulging  in natures candy bars. 
 If I eat fruit it is cantaloupe and strawberries because they are the lowest in carbs.  But still I don't grab a big bowl of them like I used to. Blueberries are pretty high so I just grab a handful for salads and etc.
Visit the link above and join me in the challenge. Visit this post for Great Low Carb Sites.  I can't wait to see where I will be in 3 months.  It would love to see that 40 lbs gone by October.
Keep checking my blog for my results.

PAPER LANTERN FISH




I made these fish from paper lanterns I found at Dollar Tree. I made a template for the tail and used a heart shape for the lips and fins. I had some printable  eyes that worked perfect for fish eyes.  Everyone loves them.

JELLYFISH  MADE FROM TARP
My very talented sister in law made one of the jelly fish that will be used in the worship rally.

 She used lightweight tarp material that her husband had stored in his shop. She bunched  it up and shaped it.
PAPER PLATE CRABS

 
I made these crabs from red paper plates from Dollar Tree.
I made a template for the claws and cut them from another red plate so they would match.  You can make 2 claws from one plate.  Use pipe cleaner for the legs.  I used glue dots to secure them .

AND MY FAVORITE  PHOTO  OF ALL.
SHARK PHOTO BOOTH MADE FROM CARDBOARD
My very own Tom the Builder.  

My husband built this photo booth for the kids and he also built a cool puppet stage and just helped in so many ways.  Love this man!!!

3 Steps to Tame a Out of Control Closet





Decluttering is a word that is dear to my heart.  Several months ago I read a book on organizing  that changed my life…no kidding. Nothing gives me the satisfaction of seeing a well organized closet.  I have done it for years with the same results.  A few months later, it is time to do it again.  But this time was different.
 Here are the steps I used to gain control of my massive clothes collection.

STEP ONE
(This is a crucial step that you can not skip)

Take all of your clothes out of the closet and  put them on the bed.  Every piece must come out.   Leave no clothes hanging or anything on the floor.

 STEP TWO
Try on every piece of clothes (my daughter didn't want to do this step but was glad she did).
Evaluate every top, skirt, pant, coat, dress, etc.
 Is there anything wrong with the piece you tried on.  Is there a button missing, a pucker that drives you crazy, too short, just plain ugly? If you don't love it, donate it or sell it on ebay.

 If you have clothes you love but they need altering, gather them all and take to your seamstress, but make sure they are worth the money to have altered.

Everything you put back in your closet will be clothes you love, and that fit you like a glove.  You will be surprised at the combinations you can come up with once you streamline your closet.

Remember when you had nothing to wear but had a closet full of clothes?  Now you have less but better choices.  Everything you grab should be something that works for you.
 

 STEP THREE
 Now is the time to shop for basics and to replace important pieces that you could no longer use. 
 Make a list of needs and stick to it.  You will not believe how different you will shop once you do this exercise.  You will be much more selective about every piece of clothing you buy.

I can't believe how much this changed my shopping habits.  I don't waste money on clothes that just hang in my closet.  If I buy it, it's going to be something I absolutely love.  

 I love to shop Goodwill and when I go now I don't come out with huge bags of clothes just because they are cheap.  I come out with clothes that have been well thought out.  I use my color note app on my smartphone to list clothes I'm looking for at Goodwill.  It keeps me from impulse buying.
