Triple-y Twisted, the new DB?

So I was running out of the house today, ready to do my go-to double braid (the DB), when I thought, why not do three twists instead of two braids?  Both use three 2 in 1s, which were already on my head all ready to go!  So I tried it, and do I ever like it!  What do you think?  Do you think this will be the new DB?

Earthy Dreams

Rivka Malka recently talked me into getting this sari scarf… I was so unsure of it, but she had the foresight to see that it would match and pull together so much of what is in my wardrobe!  FYI ladies if Rivka Malka makes a fashion suggestion to you… listen!

I loved wearing this green, orange, grey (toldja the colours were weird!) sari scarf with this outfit yesterday.  It was a gorgeous day and my husband was more than willing to snap some photos for y’all!

Have you ever had some advise you or give you something that you weren’t sure about and then you ended up LOVING it?  It’s incredible how our friends can see potential in us that we don’t normally see!

Much love, Andrea xx

Shimmery Naomi Knot!

I’d never tried doing The Naomi Knot with a shimmery scarf before!  This just sparkled like nothing else!!  And whenever I do this wrap I can’t get over how intricate it looks… the tie is SO easy!

I heard that a few of your tried the Naomi knot and didn’t have perfect results; watch the tutorial and make sure that one side is MUCH longer than the other (the shorter ends can be as short as possible) and tie your knots loosely so they go over your head!  In this one pictured I actually had tons of scarf left over!  Let me know how it goes for you!

Hugs and love!

Sari Scarf Appreciation

This new sari.  The evening light.  The swishy skirt from Israel.  The lace.  The cowboy boots.  And cuddling with our kitty after being away for so long!  Bliss.

Here are some closeups of the wrap!  I would have never thought to put together purple and gray until I saw it in this sari scarf!  So soothing and rich!

And here you can see my fave clompin’ cowboy boots!

Wishing you all huge amounts of peace, understanding, beauty, love, and finding and giving light, wherever you may be.
Love, Andrea

 

 

My Candy Violin Friend!

Having an online hair wrapping blog means that I get the honour of meeting the coolest, wonderful-est people!  Mirjam and I have been in touch for a while through email… she is a Jewish violinist from France… and yesterday she send me the most gorgeous and happy photo that I just had to share with all of you!

Candy violine 1

She’s wearing the Candy Swirls kit (with an added purple Shimmery – genius!) while playing her beautiful violin!  There is so much kedusha (holiness) in this photo and I hope it moves you as much as it moved me.

Here is a picture of Mirjam without her violin but looking all the kiddush Hashem that she is:

Thank Gd for the miracles of email and online-ness for helping us meet so many special souls!  Remember to keep making music with everything that you do <3

Easy Breezy Style!

This outfit was so gorgeous and functional!!  When you put two colours together on your head, the outfit combinations are endless!  Featured here are olive green and light navy!

(Wearing an olive and navy 2 in 1 plus the lovely peacock pin my sis in law gifted me!)

Wishing you all a splendid week!  Can’t wait to hear how you’re doing!

Four-Strand Braid Rainbow!

This is one of my favourite outfits that I wore in Israel… the dress allows for so many tichel colour combinations!  This 4-strand braid always makes me so happy!!

… walking down the back streets in the neighbourhood of Geula:

And standing on the hill where my husband and I got married!  You can see the wall of the old city behind… such a holy place!

In these photos I’m wearing four 2 in 1s – I was out all day in the boiling heat and stayed quite cool!  I would, however, if I wanted it to be cooler, choose a style without so much hanging tail on the side… but it was super fun in the breeze!

Shabbat shalom, world!  (And Shavua Tov to those of you already in Shabbat that will see this afterward!)
Love, Andrea
