Side Barrettes

I’ve been loving side barrettes lately.  Such an easy way to dress up an outfit – or just make your look feel different, which is always fun.  And it’s the perfect way to make your bed head look finished.  🙂 

(the above barrette is from  They come in a few colors.  So cute.  Here’s another cute glitter one, too.)

This is working nicely for me:

1.   Use a barrette on the larger side, so it can make a bold statement.

2.   Make a deep side part.

3.   Slightly smooth out the combed over hair and then fasten the barrette – near the temple or so. 

I got my barrette at H&M.

And even better than barrettes, want to REALLY put a spring in your step?

1.  Make this roasted chicken.

2.  Deliver to a new mom.

Yep, that will do it.  I gave that a try this week (my first roasted chicken ever) and it worked like a charm.

    You can also make that chicken by just throwing it in the crock pot. I'm doing that today and delivering to a family in our ward (weird psychic twin power!) It's like having a rotisserie chicken–super moist and falls off the bone. Once I take it out and pick all the meat off the bones I put all the bones, and stuff back in with a bunch of water for about 5 more hours and make my own chicken stock. Love doing this. Although roasted in a cast iron skillet is a bit more romantic… 🙂

    You look like a doll. Just the right touch for spring days ahead. Also, you gave me e very good idea to keep my bush looking not like a bush 🙂
    Have a sunny week guys!
