the blanket scarf & top bun

finally getting back into the swing of things. and first things first. i did a top bun. WHAT?! this took a few tries. the result was much hair loss.. and hairspray out the wazoo. seriously. if you noticed, i never do my hair because 1) you guessed it. i ain't got time for that, 2) i'm clueless when it comes to curling hair, and 3) my hair is so thick, it makes it even harder to style. don't get me wrong, i'm not complaining, my parents have blessed me with such good genes! i've tried doing a sock bun before and my sister and i laughed so hard afterwards because it looked like there was a tire sitting on top of my head! no joke. so i found this thing here in the Walmart isle, one lady must have noticed me contemplating because she immediately came to my rescue and told me how much she loved hers. SOLD. they sell these everywhere, Forever21, H&M.. it works great and I recommend it for people with thick hair. 

ok, onto the next item. this blanket scarf is everything! it was freezing cold when we shot these and the only thing that was warm was my neck, thanks to this blanket scarf. the thing about the blanket scarf is that it is huge. it adds some major fluff to your neck and shoulders (hence the warmness) so i believe it looks best with an updo (nothing fancy) -- high pony tail or top bun. blanket scarves are also great for traveling because of how many times you can wrap it around, and because it can also be used as a blanket. seriously. i love the neutral tones of this one in particular.
