SEXY BEACH WAVES | HOW I CURL MY HAIR

Sexy beach waves can be accomplished with a curling iron--no special curling wand needed! Here's my how-to hair tutorial for getting my signature wavy look, including lots of hair-curling tips. Beach waves or mermaid waves or loose waves--whatever you choose to call it, there's just something about that effortless wavy look.

MID-YEAR BOOK FREAKOUT TAG

I was tagged by Catriona of Little Book Owl to do this tag, and I'm so glad I did it. It made me realize I've had some great reads this year. It also made me realize I've got quite a few books on my to-be-read list that I've just got to get to before the year is out. How about you? Any books you're set on reading before we dance into 2017?
