1 inch vs 1 and 1/4 inch

Often times people ask me if there is really a difference in curling iron sizes, even if you are only going up a 1/4 of an inch. There is a BIG difference in the way your hair looks after it is curled with just a 1/4 inch difference in curling irons. I am going to show you what the curls look like from a 1 inch and a 1 and a 1/4 inch curling iron because those are my two favourite sizes.

First I always straighten my ends before I curl because I like the look of softer curls.

Next I spray my hair with Bumble and Bumble “Does it all” hairspray, which is a working spray so you can curl over it very easily without it getting crunchy. (Once I have curled it all I spray it again with Spray de Mode for more hold)

I start at the top of my hair strand and work my way down, and I always leave about an inch out of the bottom to keep it looking messier.

One Month Old!

Yesterday marked a month since Hendrix has been in our lives. I never realized how hard it would be for me to see my baby growing this fast. A month goes by so fast and our little boy has changed to much already. He is holding his head up very well, everyone can’t believe how strong and sturdy he is. At¬†his two week appointment he was 8 pounds 14 ounces so he is getting bigger, but not out of newborn clothing yet! We are so blessed with how he sleeps at night, usually 5 hour stints!

As much as I am excited for the future, I wish I could press pause on life right now. I want to cherish these cuddly moments with my son. These days have been the best days of my life so far.

These photos are some of the ones I have taken of his life so far. April222 copy April224 copy April227 copy April235 copy April241 copy April245 copy

One of my good friends daughters Rowyn and Hendrix! Rowyn was born two days before Hendrix. IMG_1228IMG_1219IMG_1215IMG_1206IMG_1197

He grabbed onto his owl all by himself, Steve was so proud of him. Funny how these little things bring such joy.


His face while getting burped always looks so concerned. 

Tough life!

And she loved a little boy very, very much ‚Äď even more than she loved herself.
