Pull-Through Braids

Pull-through braids are super easy to do, even for those who do not know how to braid. 
1. I added one weft of IrresistibleMe hair extensions for a fuller look. Notice how I clip the weft in upside-down to my hair right above my ear line.
2. Tie your hair into a ponytail and take two strands from each side of the ponytail. Braid each strand. (These braided strands are going to be used later on to wrap around the pull-through braid, but you can also wrap them around without braiding them)

3. Clip the braids aside and start working with the remaining ponytail.
4. Separate the ponytail into two sections, a top section and a bottom section.

5. On the top section, slide down about two inches and add a hair elastic (create bubble)

6. Next make a hole in the middle of that two-inch segment, and reach through the hole pulling through the underneath hair section
7. Now move down another two inches on your new top strand

8. Add a hair elastic, repeat step 6 through 8 until you run out of hair…
9. Now, secure both sections, at the bottom of the braid, together with one final elastic.
10. Wrap your two braids you created in step #2 around your pull-through braid.
For better understanding below is a short video of another version of a pull-through braid I created.
Have fun braiding!

Layered Crop Top & Shirt Dress

I've wanted to talk about SNAPCHAT for a long time, so here we go...If you don't have it, then you're missing out. I have had Snapchat for about eight months, but never really used it till recently. I use to think that it's another boring social media button on my phone. I thought...why should I waste time posting anything if it disappears in 24 hours? What's the point? I suddenly fell in love with sharing a few seconds of each moment in my life. It's kind of YouTubeish without editing real moments. I love to share my family and what I eat. I'm a health nut, so if you're into healthy recipes and healthy lifestyle you may enjoy me on SNAPCHAT #FABULOUSTORTURE 
I'm also sharing moment's with my son (this is where you're going to see him all the time in his element) and transformation of my guest room into my closet/office room.

One of my favorite ways to layer is creating a faux two piece dress. I love pairing crop tops over a shirt dress.  It gives it a different dimension while being equally versatile as it separates. I paired this look with black over the knee boots, black bag and a black feather necklace for fun spin.

Suede Coat

If you read my blog on a regular basis, you may know that I truly think accessories make an outfit a bit more interesting! For example, today's look, a classic suede coat and ripped jeans get a touch of sharpness thanks to a pair of studded heels and a feather necklace.
On another note, I'm very excited that it's Friday.You guys know I'm obsessed with yoga, but I also joined a gym and finally went in this week, and my entire body is sore. I think I'm going to take this weekend easy. What about you guys? What are your plans for this weekend?

Beach

This embroidery blouse is one of my favorites from Chico's. I've only had it a couple of weeks and wear it quite a bit because I love the mix of denim and embroidery detailing, and it goes with so much!
On a different note, I've been wearing these ripped American Eagle denim so much lately...they are really comfortable and perfect for warmer weather.

Bag: MICHAEL KORS/ Jeans: AMERICAN EAGLE/ Shirt: CHICO'S/ Necklace: CHICO'S/ Pumps: CALVIN KLEIN/ Sunglasses: CHANEL

Afternoon With My Guys

Hello everyone! How was your weekend? It was a little crazy here on my side! First, my computer stopped reading pictures from my SD card, and then the cord from the camera to the computer broke. It took my husband and I a while to figure it out, but now it's all good.

Now, I have to tell you that my sweet pea likes to play photographer, and he's pretty good at it. He's only 5, but look at the pictures he took below ( 3, 4, and 8). Can you believe it? And he's pretty bossy at it, he tells me how to stand, where to look, where to place my hand...etc. Funny, isn't it? I love him so much, but these pictures took about 25min (normally each shot takes only a few minutes), but it was worth it and we had a great laugh! I think I'll pay him to do it next time, haha.
