I have been in a bit of a topknot funk for a while now, and the problem is that my topknot game is not strong.
My hair is very fine and prone to lots of flyaway so I end up with the worlds smallest topknot and a weird little mullet thing flying out. It's more sumo than than rockstar so I'm shaking it off. It's time to make some changes.
Firstly I'm going to brush it every so often, and secondly I'm going to remember to rock some of these tried and tested hairstyles on a day to day basis. But let's be realistic, I'm probably going to wear a topknot every second day still.
1) The Drew: Out with a random braid every now and then. God she's perfection.
FINALLY, only two months after Scout's Unicorn Picnic Party I have put together the tutorial for the Unicorn Piñata.
Better late than never right?
Now I know in a perfect world that a Piñata has tasseled paper on it but - who the hell has time for that?
This little unicorn piñata is something that anyone can make, like all of my craft tutorials, it takes no talent, minimal cash and as little time as possible. Not because I'm rough, (ok, maybe because I'm a bit rough) because I am realistic. You guys don't want masterpieces, you want cool shit that doesn't cost the earth in cash or time.
And I think this little lady is pretty cool, don't you?
It's been a while since I have done a Taking Stock post so I thought I would pop one together. I love looking back on them and because I do lots of tutorials and recipes on this blog sometimes I wonder if I will be sad that I didn't spend all this time just memory keeping.
It's hard to find a balance between writing for yourself and being helpful to others. Truth be told I actually love reading these type of personal posts on other people's blog, I mean, there is such a voyeuristic element to reading blogs, I love seeing into other peoples houses and minds. So maybe it's doesn't have to be two separate things.
But instead of talking about what I love to read, I wanted to ask you what you like to read here? I blog about so many different things and it's hard to know exactly why you guys come to visit. Please feel free to let me know in the comment. Anyway, below is the content of my head, and here are some other Taking Stock posts.
I have not been choosing happy lately. I'm so cranky #youalreadyknow.
But it's because I haven't been practicing what I preach.
I first talked about 'choosing happy' here, if you don't want to click over it basically a mind over matter, reaction over situation type ramble. It's a simplistic approach and I still think it's useful but since I wrote it I have done a lot more research on 'happiness' and my attitude has grown a bit. If you do want to click over, go for it. I'll see you back here in a minute or two.
Ok.. so if this is something I have been thinking about for a really long time, why am I such a crank right now? I'll try to choose to be happy but about ten minutes later I would be swearing about the laundry basket or getting frustrated about the fact that I have to microwave my tea AGAIN.
