5th Birthday Candyland Party

Yes another post that has nothing to do with hair... My other love Parties... I am nowhere near a proffessional, but i love them I hope you enjoy and maybe get inspired

A couple of weeks ago we celebrated my niece/ God Duagther's 5th Birthday Party. We had many things planned that didn't get done but its okay we still had a blast, even though we had to find a place to hold the party after the venue cancelled 3 days before the party. We ended up having it on the side of the house and didn't use half of the decorations we made. Below is a couple of Pictures, Most taken by new and my new camera.....

The invitation, we got froma love lady on Etsy.  You can find her store here, she has lots of goodies in her store and has really good prices.

This is the Tutu I made her. I wish I would have been able to make it a little bit longer, but oh well.

Wondering about the Bow? Well my Lovely Friend over at Bow-Issa, made it. Special order, and i must say I was very pleased.

and she also made these to go on her shoes. totally matched the invitations and her tutu, to a T.

Well I guess this small section could be about hair. This was my nieces first time getting her hair Pressed. We washed, detangled and blow dried her hair. ( her mommy learned it was better to wash and detangle in sections :o)), and procced to press it. In the morning I freshened up the edges and did a loose french braid across the top and attached with a Bow. This is the same style also used on this post

A Couple of more pictures of the Birthday Girl. All photos taken by me... :o)

What candyland party would be complete without candy. Lots and Lots of Candy!!!!! real and fake

Here is the Candy Buffet.

All of our Vip Guest recieved a Gumball Necklace. Ours was kinda trown togethere at the last minute.

candy necklaces used as napkin rings

Tye's Ponytails

We have our first Official Ponytail since he cut his hair back in November. To  be honest I am still devastated by it. to from this  to this in a mater of weeks it went from 



Going back down memory lane, lets me know that his hair will indeed grow back in time.

His first official  Ponytail at his 2nd bday party
5 months after his second birthday nice full ponytails

and his ponytail now, after almost 10 months we cut his hair


He would now stop for a picture

And this was his Ponytail at the end of the Day!!!

Easy Infant Hair Styles

 Do you have a little one, and just can't wait to try a style in her precious head of curls? Even though everyday styling maybe too much for her young strands to handle, there are a few styles that are simple and easy to accomplish

One Loosely Braided French Braid across the front of her head, and adorned with a bow or Barrette, and the rest of the hair out in its natural state, be it curly or a little fro.

Quick and Easy Back to School Styles part 1

Back to school, for some parents is all about the joy of seeing their children grew a little bit more, and others its the saddness of seeing their child grow another year old.... But for most others its Chaotic. Rushing to get kids ready, last minute school shopping, and trying to find a way to get everything done on your check list, while still have your child presentable for the first day of school......

First Style
The Afro, a classic, and i just love how it looks on my son :o)

Now on for a style, another simple and easy one 

Two Low Ponytails 

Model A has very Thick curly Hair, and I found that wot get a slick ponytail it was better to start towards the neck and work my way up towards the front of his hairline, giving the appearance of a smooth ponytail and no bumps   
Even though this picture is done on a boy, you can dress it up with bows, barrettes or ballies, to make it more girlie.

and the 123 Ballies are the perfect addition for the first day of school. 

and if your looking for something a little more complicated but not too much,

   Please excuse the placement of the pictures while i get used to blogger. But below is a quick favorite. I only used a brush, detangler and ponytail holders, and it took maybe 15 minutes.  

Staye tuned for in depth photo's and how to's
