How To Re-Create My 1950's Bandanna Hairstyle


I get asked all the time HOW I pull my hair up into a bandanna like I do and honestly it's super easy. Actually, if you see me with my hair like this it is probably because I just didn't feel like flat ironing my hair that day. :)

So, I figured that the easiest way to tell you how to do this hairstyle is to actually show you. I hope you enjoy my little YouTube video and please be kind. . . It's not like I make video's like this everyday.

Have a wonderful weekend everybody!

I have gotten to the point where I am basically using dish soap to clean everything in my home. The more I find out what dish soap can do, the more I fall in love with it. Basically I have two main reasons why I like to use dish soap all around my home. Number one, it's tough on grease but soft on hands. I mean, seriously, some of the household cleaners I've used in the past are way too harsh. This is why I have switched to dish soap to wipe down my counter tops, clean my baseboards and scrub up everywhere around my home, even my outdoor furniture. I can easily just fill up the sink, plop in a wash rag and get to work. No gloves needed and my hands come out softer than before I even started cleaning! The second reason I love using dish soap to clean is because there are no harsh chemical smells. I have found that dish soap is able to clean and sanitize just the same as other more harsh cleaners however the dish soap smells SO much better.

When you take a look at all of the amazing things you can do with dish soap, there is no reason not to make it your number one household cleaner! So what exactly do I use dish soap for BESIDES washing dishes? Here are a few of my favorite dish soap uses that are actually awesome, plus one super cute and stylish way that I like to display my dish soap.

Adventure Bites: Wildlife Rehab Center {Howell, MI}

Sometimes you happen across things that you never knew existed, or things that you find to be really cool and unique somewhere along the back roads and interstates of travel. These small points of interest, while not an entire means for travel or destination, are still quite fun to visit on your way through anyways. I like to search out these small adventures, points of interest and quirky roadside finds.


Today I wanted to share with you a quaint, small town zoo found just on the border of Howell and Pinckney, Michigan. This zoo is unlike any other zoo I have ever been to because it hosts only animals which have been rescued and rehabilitated locally. When animals are found hurt or in distress, these are the people who take them in and nurse them back to health. When animals are found illegally owned, they are brought here to be cared for properly. Once the animals are healed, they are evaluated on whether or not they could be re-released into nature. The ones that can be safely re-released, are. The one's who can not, now find their homes among the natural forestry of the Wild Wonders Wildlife Park.
