2 Super Easy Hairstyles For Long Hair

As some of you know, I have a tendency to get in a hairstyle rut. I did a 30-day hairstyle challenge and failed. I tried it again. Failed one more time. Finally, I was able to handle a 5-day series of different hairstyles.

I really just don't have the patience to stand there in front of the mirror for more than 10 minutes to do my hair. I spent most of the summer putting my hair up in a bun because well, it's summer. If you have long hair, you end up putting it up in a messy bun four hours after you've spent 30 minutes curling or straightening and styling it.

So here we are in the fall season, and I can finally wear my hair down. But what are some easy hairstyles that I can do in less than 10 minutes?

Although I didn’t choose my own ring, which in retrospect was probably a good thing because really, how does one decide from all the different styles available these days?

Are Watches the New Arm Party?

There was a time when people didn't walk out of the house without putting on a watch, but since the advent of cell phones, we don't see these classic timepieces as often as we used to. Except for a few occasions, I personally haven't worn a watch since the late 90's. I do appreciate the beauty of a fashionable watch, and realize that watches serve as a reminder to appreciate every moment

According to this article on, watches may be the new arm party. I did a quick search on Instagram for the #watch hashtag, and over 6.8 million posts showed up. Who knew people loved their watches so much? Here are a few photos I like...
