Sandy Hook Promise



Watching the news is something I really don't do anymore. 
Not since December 14th when the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary happened.
For anyone with a heart, it was horrible. For a mother, it was horrifying. My heart broke watching the news that day and when I had to run to my kids' school to take my son some medicine he forgot, I jumped at the opportunity to be able to go and hold him for a quick second.
 Today, I happened to watch the news for a minute and heard about the #1millionhearts campaign by the Sandy Hook Promise organization.
This Valentine's Day marks the two month anniversary of this terrible day. So, while we are filling out valentines with our kids for their classes or buying them a new stuffed animal for Valentine's Day, let's remember all of the lives that were lost at Sandy Hook. Join the #1millionhearts campaign and share a Valentine in love and support of Newtown and make the Sandy Hook Promise.

My Baby Boy

 
 
 
Hi everyone! I know I promised I'd be back blogging soon
 but I haven't been able to peel myself away from my new little guy. The last few weeks have been amazing. He is a wonderful baby and I feel so so blessed. If I can stop staring at him for a while I will be back. ;) I have some DIY ideas to share with you and hopefully will get to them soon. For now, I am still ooh-ing and ahh-ing over my lil' cutie. If I am not back before Christmas I wish you all the best, most blessed holidays with your families.
 
XXOO,
Monica

Party Hair Tutorials

There are so many things that go into a party
and of course other than just the party you can't forget yourself! ...your outfit, your makeup, your hair, etc.!!
So, I rounded up a few of my favorite hair ideas to share with you.
 
Party hair tutorials, Cara Loren, top knot bun
 
This first hair idea is a great top knot bun from Cara Loren.
I just recently discovered it and had to watch it over and over because it is seriously that quick! Buns are so easy and cute and most importantly fast. So when you are short on time, or even if you aren't, I think this is a great way to go!
 
party hair tutorials, cup of jo, braided crown
Next up is a beautiful braided crown from Joanna Goddard of A Cup of Jo.
 If you've never visited her blog you will definitely be there a while!
 
party hair tutorials, The Paper Mama, no heat curls
 
Lastly, I love this idea from The Paper Mama for no heat curls.
 I always curl my hair with a flat iron and love it because it is quick and stays without any product. But, to save your hair from all that heat, this is a great way to switch off every few days. Not to mention it's a different look. You're not going to get perfect curls but it is a nice curl/wave with body and I really like that you can wake up in the morning and pretty much be set. It's also great when doing other hairstyles where you don't wanna start off with straight hair - like a bun. AND, great for us Mamas for an everyday style just because our mornings are always so busy anyway!
 
Please visit these awesome links for the full tutorials. These are just a few ideas to get your wheels turning for the next party you're giving or attending, or even just for a different everyday look. You can also visit my Pinterest hair board for some more inspiration.
