Happy Tuesday Loves, it's a rainy day here in Limoges and I'm enjoying my day indoors on Pinterest, so many great fashion, food and craft ideas, my little heart keeps pinning away. Below are a few pins that have really caught my attention over the last week. Also I am loving this week's Pinterest Challenge, mastering the Sock Bun!

Enjoy and Happy Pinning!

Pinterest Challenge: 

I have been in love with hair buns for quite some time, I love the sleek, ballerina like look but learning how to make the perfect bun a top my head, has proven difficult. That is until I found out how to do a sock bun. It's so easy to do, very clever, and makes for a perfectly, full bun. 

I found a great tutorial on Pinterest, which is pictured below. There are some also some awesome tutorials on YouTube. 

What you'll need: 
  • Brush
  • One Hair Elastic
  • One Tube Sock
  • Bobby Pins 
  • Scissors
How to:
  • Brush your hair back into a high ponytail, using hair elastic. 
  • Take your tube sock and cut the toe part off. 
  • From the top of the sock begin to roll down towards bottoms, about 1/2 inch. It will end up looking like #4 in the picture above. 
  • Take the donut like sock and put your ponytail through it. 
  • Bring sock to the tip of your ponytail and slowly roll your hair over your sock, try and make it as even as possible. 
  • Once you get to the bottom, secure with bobby pins and voila you have yourself a beautiful sock bun. 
Definitely easy to do and it looks super cute. Here's how mine came out.

Sock Bun Love.

You must have read my mind, I was trying to do a hairbun on a whim this morning. I gave up and put it in a boring ponytail. Thanks for the directions I'm trying again tomorrow! ntc
