De-tangle for a re-tangle. Take note in women’s hair history and get inspired by styles that have swept us away for centuries. Today’s modern day chick typically opts for the up do for special occasions, however that’s not the case anymore. Time to treat everyday as a special occasion!

Get inspired by these two trends and create style of your own, especially since the hair comb is making a comeback!
To create, Pick up hair combs from you local drug or beauty store. I’m a huge Goody fan, personally! Rip pieces of cotton material into 1” strips. Leave a little bit of a frayed edge will give you more texture. If you want a cleaner look, cut your fabric strips with scissors. P.S.- If you cant find fabric, cut up an old tee that may be lying around. Double knot two 12” strips on one end of a tooth. Weave the fabric in and out of the teeth, and repeat with the second piece. Double knot both pieces together on the last tooth, and snip the ends. You’re ready to rock the up do and adorn your hair with the ultimate DIY accessory. Get creative with your hair style using bobby pins, and other styling tools for various looks. P.S.- if you love to rock the high-bun, add a comb to the base of your top knot to top off!
I love Braids, but sometimes I cant figure out how to do them. This is a brief and simple diagram that should help.

DIY Bird’s Nest Necklace
This is such a cute necklace! Finally you can use those unmatched beads left behind in your craft box with this tutorial. All you need is jewelry wire, beads, necklace chain, jump rings, and a clasp. If you really want to save on jewelry try using aluminum wire found at the hardware store. I have discovered that it is easy to manipulate and is easy on your wallet.

that cup is made of chocolate. for real. I’ve yet to try this, but i’m sooooo gonna! here’s where you can find the recipe:
Irish Tiramisu Martini- Served in a Glass
Makes 2 servings
1/4 cup espresso
4 oz Baileys Original Irish Cream
1/3 cup sweet mascarpone cheese
2 scoops vanilla, chocolate or coffee ice cream
2 to 4 ice cubes
2 soft ladyfinger cookies sliced lengthwise
** you can use other sandwich cookies, or Milano’s shortbread cookies instead
2 tbsp Nutella or Chocolate spread
Blend together the espresso, Irish Cream, ice cream, mascarpone, and ice until smooth. Turn on the Froth/Whip setting on the blender and whisk for 5 seconds.
Drizzle chocolate syrup along inside edges of over-sized martini glasses using a squeeze bottle (as shown in the photo). If that seems hard, pour some chocolate sauce into a glass plate, then invert the glasses onto the plate to cover the rim with chocolate. Put the glasses in the freezer for 2-3 minutes so the chocolate sets a little.
Assembling the Drink
Now pour the mixture from the blender into the glasses. To serve the Irish Tiramisu Martini, take 2 sandwich cookies (you can use ladyfingers or Milano’s shortbread cookies), lather a generous helping of Nutella on the cookies and make a Nutella Cookie sandwich. Take a white serving plate, position the Tiramisu Martini in the center, and serve along with the sandwich cookies.
