Heidi Braids


A long time ago, I came across this picture on Flickr and fell in love with the hairstyle. Sadly, my hair was too short (or so I thought) and I'm kind of handicapped when it comes to fixing my hair. The other day it was like a tornado rolled through town or something. Winds were at a bajillion miles per hour and my hair was blowing everywhere. And then I remembered the Heidi braids. I found this tutorial and voila! I've been doing this three days in a row now. Ha. I've also been experimenting with other hairstyles. Yay for de-handicapping myself!

On a side note, I've been eyeing this chair from UO for forever. No one has anywhere to sit when they come over to my place, so I figured this would be perfect. Problem was, shipping was $25. Bah. So yesterday I went to the store, where it was double the online price, but they honored the online price for me! Heck yes. Too bad the online price went down another $10 today. Ugh.
Also, I want to add something to spice it up. A throw? A pillow? Suggestions?
