Day 23: Slide Up Braid

It seems like mums always come to the rescue. Even if it's not my own mother. The mum who runs Cute Girl Hairstyles once again saved me. I mean, she sorta got me into trouble in the first place so it's really only fair that she should save me! I was trying to do a super fancy braid (and finish my entire booklet for class at the same time...) and it just wasn't working. It's a style that I have been hankering to do but I just don't have the skills/time. BUT it will appear on this site hopefully sooner rather than later.

Instead I found another one to try and once you see it, you'll see exactly why I was taken with it. Look how cute and perfect it is and you can find out exactly how to do it right here.

The real deal is a lot better than my stumpy attempt :) But my attempt makes me smile, so it's all good!
My version just looks like a braid gone wrong. I don't think the style is meant to be for a giant side braid like I did it. On the website, they'd done just a single much smaller braid... I think that'll be the way to go next time. And whilst trying to find pictures for this site, I found another braiding website!!!!!!!! I think I'm going to go out in a BRAID of glory... geddit... like BLAZE of glory?!?!? Yep, I'm pretty funny.

Not sure when my next post will be, as I'm pretty busy with work and will be doing family stuff dis weekend. On Friday night I will be working at the Animal Emergency Centre from 6pm til midnight. I'm actually really, really nervous! Surprise, surprise!! But also excited because I will have lots of cool stories and will get to see lots of cool things. I'm just worried about standing around like an awkward ninny and getting in the way whilst everyone is rushing around saving lives. But everyone's gotta start somewhere, right?!

Hope everyone has a story worth weekend. (Anyone else listen to The Moth? If not, it's a great podcast and definitely you should check it out!)

The plait looks fun, though. Very casual and carefree.

I hope your session at the Animal Emergency Centre goes well and that you come back with stories to tell us. :)
