For the longest time I have had issues with my “adult” skin. You would think this crap would change as we get older, but it doesn’t. So aside from bills and jobs and kids, I have to worry about aging skin too, fantastic.

Spring is coming!
Isn’t that great! I love spring, after a long winter. Sadly around here, it hasn’t been even the tiniest bit wintery.
But amid all my non-winter woes, I still love spring. All the colors and flowers and flowing dresses in bright pastels! So I decided that I needed some extra pretty to wear in my hair, and a regular old bow or headband wasn’t going to suffice.
Enter, the DIY Flower Crown.
By now you should know how obsessed with felt I am! So of course today’s tutorial is made with felt! Duh!
I love all things hair and hair accessories. 14 years in the industry will do that to a girl… I always see cute hair bows and clips and headbands and think to myself, “Self! I can make that!” It’s ingrained in my brain!

Being a hair stylist, I can be pretty snobby about products, but being someone who blogs and reviews things I kind of have to be open to trying lots of things…
This is my conundrum…
