Hair Wrap Bun Video Tutorial

Nicole here! Today I filmed this video showing you how to get Clarisse’s hair wrap bun look from our last post. I’ve been wanting to do more videos, and since many Instagrammers were interested in this look, I thought it would be a good place to start. Since this is my first attempt at doing a fully narrated video tutorial like this, if you have any thoughts or feedback to share, please leave a comment so I can keep it in mind for the next one!

*If you are watching this on a mobile device, you might notice I mistakenly said Annie has a #39 wig, when it is actually a #38 wig- I corrected myself with a caption, but they don’t show up on mobile devices. Sorry for any confusion!

-top and pants: KateLaurenDesigns on Etsy
-sandals: Bitty Baby Blossom Outfit

-top: TheElegantDoll on Etsy

Pippa and I spent the weekend visiting some friends, and decided to take some photos there since the weather was so glorious! Sunshine and mid-70’s, what more can you ask for on a June day? We finally broke out our summer wardrobe and put away our winter clothes last week, so as you can see we had fun accessorizing with our favorite summer items like my shell necklace and sandals and Pippa’s nautical bag and straw fedora. I’m also thinking the hair-wrap bun will be my new go-to ‘do this summer because it’s cute and simple and keeps my hair off my neck and out of the way. Would anyone like to see a tutorial for the style?

Hello NYC!

Back in April I had the chance to visit NYC and meet some friends who I’ve enjoyed getting to know via the blogging/Instagram world, and we had a blast visiting the AG store together and exploring the city! May was a very busy month as I finished up with my school program, but now I’m settling into summer mode and finally getting to post our fun meet-up pictures.

The whole gang! 

This is my friend Inky who has a fabulous blog, Super Inky

I had fun shopping at AG with my friend Reid, who I know through @AstoriaAvenueApparel on Instagram, who hosted the meet-up! We enjoyed some pastries with Grace, and got to hang out in the Personal Shopper lounge when we got tired from all the shopping 😉

I even won 2 of the awesome giveaways that were donated by some great shops! I let Elle and Tillie try them on when we got home- how cute are they?

This adorable flamingo dress is from Aunt Sissy Originals. It’s perfect for summer and fits right in with the popular flamingo trend this year!

This one is from Katherine’s Creations! It’s sooo perfect for Tillie and goes great with the silver headband from QTpie Doll Clothing.

I had such a great time and I hope to go to another meet-up soon so I can meet some more friends!
