Braided Messy Updo

I got inspired by LetsMakeItUp on youtube and created this easy, messy braided side bun. If you like romantic updos, she is your go-to youtube guru. I can highly recommend her videos.

Here is my quick version:

DIY: Turquoise/Brown Clutch

So here are the pix I promised...the finished DIY clutch:)

A few days ago I felt creative and went to Joann's to buy some fabric to create this little clutch. If you wanna know how to sew / or glue a clutch similar to this, check out this video. It is very easy and fun. 
You can also find some fabric and trims / sequin trims in a variety of colors at select Walmart stores.
I decided to sew (oh yea, I do not own a sewing machine, so I had to do it by hand, which takes longer, but works just as well), since the brown fabric I choose was a very thick faux leather, and sewing make it more durable.

Early Morning...

'A journey of a thousand miles stars with a single step'

Sometimes it is so hard to get up very early in the morning to go to work, but then something, like this gorgeous sunrise awaits you in front of  your house door. After seeing this, how could you say it was not worth it.

Boobz....Where?! Goofin' Around....

Yesterday is history.  Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift. 
That's why we call it the present.

I have a confession to make....yeaaa, I am a nerd;)

Some days, especially when all the three of us sisters get together, we just can't behave like adults. It feels like the good old days, like the time we were children. You don't think of duties, no worries, no just enjoy the moment! 

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. Buddha

When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.  
~Alexander Graham Bell

Do you guys also have those days?
