Excited to share that I am a Theodora and Callum Spring Brand Ambassador

Do you remember this fab brand from Eat, Pray, Love?  They were one of Oprah's faves!  Well, I've been following the brand since then and loving that they are all about travel (something I LOVE to do).
I have shared a video from them before on how to tie scarves, but now that I've received a new one from the brand I have to show this video that I'm excited to try out with my new, fab scarf:)

Make sure and follow the brand on Facebook and Twitter because they are always having fun giveaways!

Just spotted this hat from the NYT "The Collection" app and had to share. Bill Cunningham was sharing how this hat was seen at Paris Fashion Week. It looks like something easy to make. You'll just need netting and a cotton beanie hat and voila.

Are braids making a comeback?

Solange Knowles thinks they are and I'm going to try them again soon.
After Brandy and Alicia Keys put a pause to their signature braids it seemed like no one was rocking them.
Recently, (since going au natural) Solange has been rocking long box braids that look so effortless and go with her boho/ethnic vibe. Plus, I love how she styles her braids...she doesn't just wear them down. She always changes it up. An up style or using a fab turban she creates herself! (DIY directions below) Solange's braids remind me of Janet Jackson in Poetic's funny how things always seem to come back around. Well, I will be trying this style soon...anyone else?

How to make a turban like Solange:
"I just buy fabric from the fabric store, cut it into a rectangle, twist it really tight around my head and tuck it either in the back or the front so it stays. The key is that the fabric has to be really stiff," she says.
