Wedding Hair: Wrap-Around Braid

via pinterest
I love all the braided hairstyles I've been seeing this summer. Reminded me I never posted my wedding hair. It's basically a wrap around braid with the loose ends curled and pinned up. I made both my fascinator and birdcage veil with the help of this and this tutorial.

Happy Independence Day America!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth! The 4th of July is def my fave holiday! Grilling. Summer. Swimming. Fireworks. Family. Proposal. We got rained out this year so I didn't get to see an official fireworks display, but that's okay bc there were enough contraband [they are illegal in VA] fireworks going on in the neighborhoods, keeping me up until 12 am mind you. Basically spent the weekend swimming, grilling, roasting s'mores and spending QT time with family and friends. Need I say more why I love Independence Day? Home of the Free because of the Brave. Thanks to all our past and present military for keeping America Freeeeee!

my fam inadvertently dressed as the American flag :P
