Helping Empower Women

I recently came across this website that has so many awesome products including the Zum Bar soaps, Facial Creams, Scrubs, and Cleansers, Multi-Purpose Mineral Eye Shadows and other mineral cosmetics by Mayha Cosmetics, Shampoos, Conditioners and many other bath and beauty related all natural items as well as all natural cleaners and laundry detergent . You can even make a gift basket! All this and the proceeds go to helping women, I think its a wonderful idea.

I want to try the  Lavender and Lotus Lotion by Acure Organics and when you purchase $60 or more you get a free Acure Organics lotion in addition to Soap Hope's commitment to invest 100% of profits to fight poverty, for each product sold Acure donates $1.00 to its partner charities to help fight breast cancer! So with all this said I hope you guys check out the site and lets make a difference :)

♥ Heart Headband for Valentine's Day♥


This just kinda popped into my head the other day and I tried it out, it's a good thing I took pics lol. I didn't use gel cause we were doing something that day and if it didn't turn out right I would have to take it down and it's easier with out the gel. This means there were some fuzzies lol. So I suggest you either use gel or pomade for this.
First I parted her bangs out, if your daughter doesn't have bangs you can skip this step

Then I parted the hair straight down the back.

Then I separated a band on each side.

Now make a small pony and do a pull through (you will be making 3 ponies on each side).

It will look like this.

 Now split the pulled through pony into two sections and twist them outward.
 Shape into a heart.
 Secure with an elastic and put to the side.
 Make the second pony and do the same thing except now you want to pull the end from the first heart in through the second heart.

 Attach the bottom of the second heart to the hair you pulled through from the first. It will look like this.
 Here is a closer pic doing this with the third heart.
 Now the left side is done.
 Just do the exact same thing on the right.
 Take the ends from the hearts and pull smoothly back.
 Attach an elastic.
 Top view.
 You can do a ribbon like this and attach it to the elastic you used or you could use a plastic craft needle and thread it through the pull trough's.

 I poofed it up a little and curled the ends just a bit.

We may have one more style before Valentine's so check back.
Have a Valentine's Day full of love!

It will look like this.

~♥~5 Heart Valentine's Day Hair Style~♥~

~♥~5 Heart Valentine's Day Hair Style~♥~

 First, apply gel to wet hair and part the hair down the middle, then separate a section of hair that is just behind the ear on each side and make a ponytail. Use either a piece of string, a topsy tail, or a rat tail comb, and pull the hair through the back and into the front.  
 Split that ponytail in half and braid each side like this.
 Make a third section of hair and secure with an elastic and then secure the braids with it like this or do like I ended up doing and just pull the braided pieces through going back where you do the next pull through. Hope this makes sense look at the picture after this one below. You can do it either way though.

 I ended up changing it and pulled the braids through like this.

 Now braid the second section like you did the first.
 Now just do the same with the other side.

 At this point it should look something like this.
 Now with the bottom half of the hair, make a ponytail adding the extra hair from the braids from the first heart (I didn't smooth it down so you can see it) Do a pull through going from the bottom, up. Then connect the left braid and right braid from the sides and pull through going from top to bottom so it comes out the bottom.
 Now with the hair you pulled through the top, split it in half and braid to make the heart.
 Connect it to the hair coming through the bottom and then just go through and place bobby pins where needed to support the hearts

Hope you like this style and we will be adding another soon. Thank you for reading :) !!!
