We've been writing this blog for a little over six months and I would like to consider all of you friends. Can I call you friends? I feel like since I tell you random facts about my life at least twice a week, I am going to deem you as my friends - I hope you don't mind (and if you do mind, please don't tell me - thanks). Since we are now friends I feel like I can tell you about my addiction. It really is a problem.
I am addicted to hairbands. I have one with me at all times... seriously, all times. I've been known to have mild melt downs when I am somehow left without one, or even worse - one breaks. What's that? You think I'm exaggerating? You think I'm just being dramatic? Let me show you something that I recently came across:
In case you can't tell, this is a picture of me on my wedding day. I am laughing at the very odd plan to stuff to me in a garbage bag (another story for another day), but more importantly you can see my hair is clearly done and it is clearly NOT the occasion for a hairband and yet there it is. I have a problem.
Because of my problem, I've been trying to find new ways to keep my unruly hair out of my face. I've seen a bunch of pins for headbands and I am slowly working my way through them. I had seen a cute lace one forever ago and then I lost the pin (I hate when that happens). Yesterday I found it again - YAY!
I love a bunch of things from Elisa McLaughlin and this is no exception. She made her headband with some elastic but since I don't have some in the house for some reason, I used what I had --- a hairband.
I recently picked up some lace from Mindy Mae's Market (go check them out...love.) and this was the perfect use for it. I measured my head and then cut the lace an inch and a half smaller than the measurement. This was to account for the hairband and stretch. I overlayed all the lace and then folded it over the hairband and sewed it down on itself. After doing that for both sides -- I put it on. Yup, that easy!!
Notice my hair is still pulled back in a hairband, but I think I'm making progess on my addiction by adding the headband.
