A Little Tutorial On How I Curl My Hair…

For a more relaxed look: Don’t hold the iron on your hair as long and avoid curling the tips. I also run a comb through it
For a more curled look: Leave the iron your hair longer, curl the tips and hair spray right after.

  40. Hi –
    I have a question for you. My clothing budget is very tight, as is my closet space. In the past if I had some clothing money I’d just buy something because it was VERY on sale and then hate it after a few wears. Now I’d prefer to save up my money and buy only some good pieces that I love, even if it means I will have very few clothes. Anyway, my question to you is if you were in my situation, what items would you HAVE to have in your closet. What are the workhorse pieces that you love that can be worn again and again in different ways? I am also curious about jewelry too, I can’t afford to always buy the trendy fun pieces, but what are a few classic pieces that I can wear with everything. Thanks!

  41. jules says:

    thanks for the tips!


  42. Every time I read your blog I want to dye my hair dark again. Cute tutorial!

  44. andrea grace says:

  45. love this look. I need to recreate it for my bridal shower, so I need to buy a curling rod soon!


  46. Luli says:

    Wow, this is great. Thank you! I think I learned something here…even though my hair is a bit shorter than yours, I think I will try the loose curls.

  47. Monica Gava says:

    I have short hair and never curled my hair… Maybe I should try it!

  65. The discount swiss rolex enhance a woman’s style quotient and their pricing comfortably fits into the catier jewellery budget. They being so low priced, people tend to buy more than one mens jackets
    at a given time. With the hoped for designer miu miu hobo bags being available at such an easy price no coco chanel online one can actually stay away from them. Therefore, if you are contemplating about whether to purchase hermes bag outlet or not, then you should go for them without any delay and buy handbags at will. With the availability of varied color and sassy designer louis vuitton wallets and that too at a cheap price, women can get the omega speedmaster watches according to their preference without any issues related to price.

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
