Crimped.

 

 

IMG_8068I have an obsession with my Bed Head Little Tease Crimper. Let me tell ya why!

  1. It’s a great way to get a funky bohemian texture without the everyday beach wave.
  2. If you have fine hair it can instantly give you volume.
  3. It’s a great base for updos and braids.
  4. It’s an awesome anchor for you clip-in hair extensions.
  5. It’s like your mom’s crimper is back and ready to party!

For a half up Coachella, look I crimped my hair and braided the front sections. Then I gently pull the braids apart to make them a little thicker. Finally, you just tie the two braids in a knot and tuck the ends in!

For a mohawk vibe, take your crimped locks and put them into three ponytails. You can totally leave them like this for a hawk-style pony or put them in three messy buns for a mohawk updo! Super Easy and a little edgy. Check out below!

Anyone else diggin crimper right now?!

Hair Tutorial: Cowtail Braid

Warning: I’m a complete dork and can think of many puns for this post, but for your sake, I’ll allow myself two! MOOOVE over fishtail, pigtail, ponytail there is a new tail in town…the cowtail! I’ve got beef with the hair industry (2 puns and done) because cowtails have not been repped. Believe it or not, one summer I worked on a dairy farm for a couple of weeks and I have been in love with cows ever since! I am a lover of “next day hair” and dry shampoo. What’s not to love?! That’s how I started what I’m calling the cowtail braid. As usual I slept with my hair in a loose braid and woke up in a hurry so I did a braid but I stopped braiding about a quarter of the way down. Leaving the ends messy and wavy gave it a bohemian vibe and I realized it reminded me of a cow’s tail! I added a dutch braid with the tutorial to give it a little something extra! So here it is friends and I hope you love it! If you do love it or try any of my tutorials please #GoldiesArrow and #cowtailbraid 🙂 Thanks for following, I appreciate it! Stay Golden!

You never felt this way. Ya you never fall this far. You never believed in love at first sight until tonight when I walked in this bar.

Happy Weekend!! A few weeks back I mentioned that my song inspiration for a post was Light of Day from Aubrie Sellers and that I couldn’t get enough of that track… WELL I bought the album New City Blues and have been obsessed with it. It’s country with some serious edge to it, garage country! I love crankin it in the car and its perfect to pregame a girls night out! Last night Pat and I had a date night and went to 3S Artspace in Portsmouth to see The Felice Brothers w/ Aubrie Sellers. I honestly had no clue who the Felice Brothers were, sorry to any fans of their fans, but I had to see Aubrie Sellers performing so close to home! She put on such a great show and I even had the opportunity to chat with her! Not only does she sound amazing live, but she’s absolutely beautiful and equally as kind. I am so pumped about last night!! Make sure to check her out if she’s in your area, tour dates are here. Hope  your weekend is amazing and you have a Happy Easter tomorrow 🙂

Hair Tutorial: Crown Braid

Hey frands! Thought I would do a quick tutorial of the crown braid I was wearing at the flea market! All you need is  some bobby pins (these are my fave because there are so many, and like socks, my bobby pins are always missing haha and they are great for holding updos), clear elastics and some texturizing spray I like Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray $44 or Redken’s Windblown 05 $19. It’s the perfect style for next day hair and you’ll be sure to get compliments!!

Flea Market: Nashville Style

The Fourth weekend of every month The Fairgrounds Nashville is home to the Nashville Flea Market! It’s in the top 10 flea markets in the country with up to 2,000 booths with a range of antiques, clothing boutiques, hand crafted furniture…you name it! My favorite part of the flea market was discovering Southern Sap Woodworks, they had a dining room table and benches that knocked my socks off. If I lived in Tennessee I would have zero dollars left to my name! Here are a couple pics of an awesome day at the market with family, friends, gorgeous Nashville weather and a special appearance with my nephew, Indiana Bones!

 

Also: if you are like me and always wondered where the hell the name flea market came from?! I did a little googling for ya! Flea Markets origin came in “1917, especially in reference to the marché aux puces in Paris, so-called ‘because there are so many second-hand articles sold of all kinds that they are believed to gather fleas.’ ” Thank ya Dictionary.com!

 

Now I know why-y I’m feeling so high, high Cause I’m still drunk, drunk on your love, on your love

Hey y’all! I just got back from Nashville and it was such an amazing time catching up with my sister Brooke! I had missed her so much! Brooke brought us to the cute and trendy 12th Avenue South “12South” and visit Reese Witherspoon’s  Draper James. I had to snap a pic in front the adorable blue and white striped building!  White’s Mercantile was my favorite shop on 12South and I can’t wait for the next trip to visit more boutiques. Nashville has some AMAZING boutiques and everyone is just so damn nice!!

BaByliss Pro Curling Iron Tutorial

 

Hey All! Thought I would post a tutorial on curling your hair! There are actually dos and don’ts to curling and I wanted to share them with you. I’m going to be using a Bayliss Pro 1-1/4″ iron (Currently on sale here) to create two different looks. The picture above on the left is using alternate curl directions for a more tousled wave look, while the look on the right has curls all going in the same direction! I forgot to mention in the tutorial that my heat is set on med-hi and if your hair is very damaged or fragile feel free to turn it down! Make sure to follow me on instagram for more give-aways and tutorial notifications and #GoldiesArrow if you give it a go! I’d love to see your curls 🙂

We’ve had a very gracious winter in New England so far! While I’m enjoying the spring-like weather,  I still have GOT’s  “winter is coming” stuck in my mind and have been on the lookout for a winter parka to get me through the cold. On a side note: anyone else anxiously waiting the next Game of Thrones season?! I know I am! Anyways back to my cute parka…I don’t have many winter jackets because I will buy one I really like and use it for a couple of winter seasons. I really needed to refresh my winter coat situation this year and I had my eyes on this Fjallraven parka since the beginning of December. I finally found it on Amazon for 25% off! It’s not the exact color I wanted, but I couldn’t beat price! I am so happy with this jacket. It is so warm, covers your bum AND it has a cute waist…there is nothing worse than looking like your are floating in your man’s coat! The best part is it’s so durable and I know I’ll have this jacket for many years to come!

My mama don’t like you, and she likes everyone

I’m not sure if you have noticed yet, but each title of my style blogs are lyrics to a song I’m digging! This week, Love Yourself, has been stuck in my head. Damn you Bieber…I really want to not like you but you keep making songs I can’t get off replay! Anyone else having this problem?! Besides my fighting to not be a Belieber, I’ve been so excited about blogger Cara Loren starting the Cara Loren Shop! I’ve always admired her blog, style and love of family. The shop has some really cool pieces but I just loved this fringe faux leather jacket! I’m really particular about faux leather jackets, sometimes I find they smell like chemicals or look nothing like real leather. This jacket is so perfect. It has some weight to it, its buttery soft and the fringe really amps up an outfit from plain to badass! Hope you have a fantastic week and Stay Golden!
