Braided Crown

Hey friends! Today I am sharing my quick go to hair style. Whenever I am on day 2 of not washing my hair or I am having a hot mess of a hair day I go to the braided crown. I am no hair guru - I just love a good messy crown.

1. Start by dividing your hair in 2 sections down the middle & start braiding each section or if your feeling adventurous do a fish tail braid. I just stuck to a simple braid for today. Secure each braid with a clear elastic that way you don't see it. I leave out pieces to frame around my face its really up to you.

2. Once you have each side braided. I pull pieces of the braid out to give it a "fuller" look. 

3. Grab one braid and pull it across to the other side of your head & secure it with a bobby pin. Than repeat with the other braid.

And that's it! Pretty easy! I will sometimes pull at the braid some more to give it a messier look. 

Harper clearly is interested in a braided crown tutorial. 

Some products I used for this tutorial:

rings / Essie nail polish in mint candy apple

I hope you enjoyed today's post! Have a wonderful rest of your week! Cheers!

Boho vibes

Hi friends! Hope your week is great. E & I both had a day off together & decided to go to the mountains. We live a short drive from Banff national park. The weather was perfect. We got ice cream & hung out in the park. Harper loved his life. He's obsessed with chasing gophers although he can never catch them haha. We drove up to the look out { where we took these photos }. There were tons of mountain goats & we spotted a bear. I may or may not have been looking behind my back every 3 seconds to make sure some bear wasn't coming my way haha over paranoid I know! All & all it was a perfect day. Looking forward to our next trip. 

Enjoy the rest of your week!

may favourites / /

The month of May was so much fun! I made a trip back to my hometown for my best friends baby gender reveal, explored new restaurants in Calgary, went to the mountains, my parents came up to visit us from Ottawa & of course I started a blog!
I wanted a way to share my everyday life that can be seen through my Instagram account or my camera roll through my blog. I guess you could call this a monthly mashup :)
