Hair TwoTangly ?!

I sure do!  My hair is thick and gets knotty so easily.  It's a daily battle and once I find products that help, I'm an excited girl and a devoted fan.  I wanted to share with you a great product I was recently introduced to,
the super cute and functional "twotangly"! 
  Well they just maybe the secret to no more tangling and no more annoying elastic indentations! You know- once your ponytail comes out and you want to rock the hair down!! Hooray!!

Just some of the stylish bands I'm loving...



My Fav- Angie's Green Envy

who doesn't love a little animal print
so perfect for the holidays

I'm happy to give away twotangly so you can love them also! One can be yours, just be one of the first two emails I receive, telling me why you'd love a set.  I know you'll be a fan and want to order more!  Great for little one's!

Be sure to check out all the fun styles~
Happy Monday!

Thanksgiving Prep~

 Thoughtful Decor~

Thankful Tree

 I love this idea and I've been planning on creating this tree for my Thanksgiving day table. My idea is slightly different by using acorns in the vase, which I recently had fun collecting with my sweet nephew Bryce. We also found three unique leaves to trace for the thankful messages, to go on the tree. So simple and a great tradition to incorporate each year!

 Unique Centerpiece Ideas~
