Velvet Hair Bow Tutorial for the Happy Holidays!

 Hey Gals! I thought this velvet hair bow would be so pretty to wear around the holidays so I decided to share a tutorial on it! Making it was fun & only cost me $0.75! I found this velvet fabric at Hobby Lobby! My local JoAnn Fabrics only carried black velvet ribbon that doesn't show so much on my hair, but would be pretty on a blonde! Hobby Lobby carried multiple colors of velvet ribbon for even easier bows, but I also found some velvet ribbon online here! Hope you love!

Below are easier options for a perfect velvet hair bow! I love these because it makes a simple ponytail on-the-go more fun!!

This one is superrrr easy! For the pink ribbon, I just tied a bow and adjusted it how I liked and hot glued it to an alligator clip! This method worked best for this size ribbon. The black ribbon, I just tied around my hair! So easy, right? Adds a little girly-ness! Thanks for stopping by!!

Our Sunday Best 😂

Daylight savings has been nice on Sundays because we get up a little extra early to get ready for church. 9 am church is rough for me, I'm not really a morning person. Quick story, once my brother asked my dad why we have daylight savings and my dad's response while throwing his arm in the air was, "Because the government has nothing better to do!" If you knew him and us, you would die laughing. It's a constant inside joke we have.

This was the day after we picked Zach up from the airport on his return from his humanitarian trip to Ghana! We missed him so much, especially me. By day 6, I had a little cry because I just missed my best friend and partner I talk to about everything. But I was so happy to have him take this trip because it was special to all of us. I may do a separate blog post about it because it impacted me as well though I wasn't there (he was sponsored and we would have had to pay $10k for me to be there plus all the vaccinations and medicine while pregnant wasn't a good idea). Trust me, I searched flights when I got news he was going.

Anyway, I thought the boys looked so handsome kind of matching (often occurrence) and my handsome Zach is showcasing his tie souvenir, but this is the best we got with my wobbling around and the best energy I had after church! I'm at the end of my 29 weeks and I've been doing pretty well other than just having to slow it down a little. These guys sure are making time go speedy fast!

The best time to wear a dress with pockets is all the time...🎶

Does anyone else know that episode of SpongeBob that has that song about the striped sweater? K probably not, but if you do I love you. Anyway! This dress is super simple with a little feminine detail and I got a lot of compliments wearing it!! It has two best parts about it, 1. it's COMFY and 2. IT HAS POCKETS! Enough said. What is it about dresses with pockets that melts my heart?!? I got it at a warehouse sale that I went to with my best friend (I knew going would be dangerous #eyerolls #notreally) and got it for around 20 buckaroos. I would wait for a holiday or keep a look out for sales on insta because this shop has them frequently. The booties I also just love because it was what I pictured in my mind. I'll link above, but they were just $15.99 ordering over phone from the Orange, California store because I wanted that color. You save more than $10 ordering from the store and they are less expensive than online fyi! Thanks for stopping by lovies!
