What is Summer without a Lemonade Stand?

Stacie's youngest daughter loves having lemonade stands, so why not do it up right and take some pictures? She invited her best friend and cousin to join her and they had a lot of fun! The girls looked adorable and the Palo Verde trees were bloomimg beautifully! It was a little on the warm side, but it was worth it!

Enjoy! Happy Summer!

Summer Hair

We both have long hair, which we love most of the time.  However, with temps reaching 110 in Phoenix we are always looking for creative ways to get it out of our face.  We will be featuring some  ways to achieve that.  Dana's wearing the waterfall braid below...we could make another cheesy how-to video but youtube already has a million waterfall braid tutorials.

Here is a fun side-braid-twist.

A Fishtail Braid/Tuck below...simply done.  It doesn't have to be perfect.  In fact we do our own braids; so often times it's a messy look:)  

The below style is made with the top layers pulled into a small bun and fastened.   The lower section was french braided under the bun going sideways.  The end of the braid was wrapped around the bun and secured tightly with hair pins.

Now we need to see some ideas from the pretty brunette...what's next Stacie?
