Monday Mayhem

So I am getting ready to go back to college and the other night I decided to take down my handy dandy Peel & Stick Repositionable Dry Erase Wall Calender so I could take it with me....HAHAHAHAHA!

Did I mention that it is:
1) Reusable
2) Comes off cleanly without any damage &
3) Won't leave any sticky residue ...


No make that 


And you may be thinking "Well if she didn't Tasmanian Devil it off the wall it would have worked fine"...but no I sat there for 30 mins gently peeling a section at a time, taking the care of a Curator with a priceless artifact (In case you missed it the wall was the artifact not the calender). OY!

For those of you who haven't heard of it, our lovely Hosts - AlyxDaryl &  Cecila paired us off with another blogger so we could play Santa to each other. Click here for the DL...

Here is where the Christmas Colors stop, as I might have let on that I LOVE purple! My not-so-secret-Santa (the adorable Emily from Sweet Bella Roos) was more than happy to indulge me! We were supposed to list 5 things we liked to give our partner an idea of what we would enjoy. To be honest I can only remember putting that I loved Purple and I think I mentioned something about good smells - whatever I said she was spot on with absolutely everything and SO GENEROUS! Check out the awesome swag I got in my package:

Hair Bow Tutorial
1. Begin by taking one small section of hair from each side of your head. 
The bigger the sections, the bigger the bow.

2. Tie the two sections together with an elastic to create a half ponytail. 
 Don't pull the ends through the elastic the last time you wrap it to create a loop like the picture on the right.

3. Split the loop in half to create two smaller loops and clip one loop aside for later.

4. Use your fingers to spread out the loop and push it flat against your head into a bow shape. 
 Insert one bobby pin going from top to bottom and one going from bottom to top.

5. Repeat on the opposite side to finish the bow shape.

6. Pick up the remaining ends of the ponytail and wrap them up and around the elastic to hide it.
 Secure it with bobby pins underneath.
