The Many Ways to Rock a Scarf!

I just love scarves! You can have a ball wearing them! They come in so many styles and you can do soooo much with them. It is one of the least expensive and easiet ways to dress up and outfit.

So with fall officially here, have fun and play dress up!

















Turbans are hot this fall! Learn how to tie one with your own scarf.

Turban-tied scarves were in this summer, and they are still in for the fall. The fashion runways were showing them in a multitude of forms. Even Beyonce is sporting them in a few of her more recent promotional pics. There’s nothing really new about them. Women and men have been tying their hair in scarves for centuries. Enjoy this trend! There’s so many ways to rock it!

Here’s the basic instrutions:

Before you start, tie your hair in a bun or ponytail. Fold a large square scarf in half into a triangle. Lay the scarf on your head with the center point of the triangle facing forward and the sides hanging down each of your shoulders. Making sure most of your hair is covered, grasp the length of each side and bring them to the top of your head, twisting twice to create a “knot”.

Once you’ve twisted the ends twice into a knot, bring both sides together to the back of your head and tie it tight. Tuck all your loose ends under the back and front of the turban.

Voila, you’ve just made a turban! You can also create a turban-like headband using a rectangular scarf by repeating the same steps without covering all of your hair. Don’t forget the double twist and happy wrapping!

Here’s a video of one of my favorite natural bloggers is showing you how she did it:

Rainwear: It Can Be Fashionable!

Rainwear: You can still be fashionable

Well, without a doubt, we are having quite a rainy spring in North America. However, that is not a reason to have a boring list of choices to choose from your closet. In fact, the trend of wearing wellies has made rainy weather a lot more fun for many women. I have personally have worn my black and white polka dot rainboots so much over the last ten years that I finally need a new pair.

Here are my suggestions for must-haves:

A Quality Umbrella
Yeah, there are a ton of umbrellas to choose from but it is important to dress how you live. After losing lots of umbrellas, I would strongly suggest owning more than one. Keep a big one in the car and put a small one in your purse. You just never know when you’re going to need it. I would also make a purchase from a reputable company who offers a warranty with their umbrella. For example, Calvin Klein will replace a broken umbrella.

A Classic Trench Coat/Rain Coat
Trench Coats never really go out of style. It just make sense to have one that goes with everything for a long time. Depending on where you live, you may only get to use one for a few months. If you do like something trendy, cool! But get it from some place like H&M or Target in some fun print.

Due to the popularity of these shoes, you can find them everywhere. A decent pair may only cost you $20.00. You may find lots of uses for them too like: gardening, snow and maybe cleaning.

Rain Scarves or Hats
I know how women are about their hair! And if you’re getting all dressed up to go to a formal event, keeping your hairstyle in tact is important. Your hair doesn’t always stay dry with an umbrella or hooded coat. Try a rain scarf instead.

Stay dry and look fabulous too!
