No Fuss Hair - Waterfall Braid

I learned how to do a waterfall braid a few weeks ago and I've been loving the look lately. It looks like a somewhat complicated style, but it's super easy. These pictures are from my first attempt at the braid.

 You basically start with 2 sections of hair, twist it back, grab another piece and put it over the one of the original 2 strands and then twist again to lock it in. That piece just hangs down and you repeat the process...Ok, my instructions sound really confusing lol. I'll include the video I watched so you can get a better idea.
I watched the video again after I did my hair and mine didn't look as good as hers. I noticed that she twisted her's down whereas I twisted mine up. 

Video Instructions skip to 6:20 for the hair tut. 

What's your go to no fuss hairstyle?

Thanksgiving Eve Outing

For Thanksgiving Eve Jason and a Friend of mine thought we would check out a new place, Carousel Piano Bar and Lounge. It isn't exactly new, but the last time I've been there was about 8 years ago and they recently renovated it so we thought it would be the perfect time to check it out. It's located right in the Monteleone Hotel in New Orleans which is said to be the most haunted hotel in the city.

Canal St. all done up for the Holidays

This bar used to be a carousel which they converted to it's present state.. It actually spins too, hence the name. It moves very slowly so you don't really feel it. In fact you don't even realized it turned until you notice that your facing in a different direction lol.

 Did you notice my new phone? I really wanted a white one so Jason got me the Galaxy SII

 I've been wearing my hair like this a lot lately. I just pull back the front pieces, grab the middle to poof it and bit and pin it. It only takes like 30 seconds and looks like you actually spent time on it.
