Halo Wrapped Fishtail

I’ve been house busy. Yesterday I drove around looking at tile all day, some of you may have seen if you follow me on snapchat. If you don’t my username is (britanymarshall) :). 
I’m also almost done with my no heat challenge. If you didn’t know, I’ve been doing a no heat challenge for the whole month of July. Which hasn’t been as bad as I thought it would be. Mainly because it is sooooo hot and I don’t even want to pull my blow dryer out. Especially after running in the morning. Who thought training for a 1/2 marathon in July/August was a good idea… :/. It’s. so. hot. 
I put together a braid tutorial that I have been promising certain followers about. This is fun and looks fancier than just your normal fishtail. It can be worn casual and you can also dress it up like to a hot wedding in July ;). 
The voice over on this video is kind of crazy, I still haven’t figured out why it screams back at me while I’m trying to record. So if anyone knows how to fix this annoying screech…. help a sister out. 
I hope everyone is having a great summer. I can’t wait to tell you more about the house progress. I will try and shoot some pictures this weekend.

Pinterest Cabinet Roudup

This morning we are meeting with the cabinet guy and later meeting with the electrician. I have gathered some photos from my Pinterest board to show some ideas I am liking for our cabinets.
I like the glass windows in the tops of these cabinets. I am not sure I want glass though, pros – they are pretty.. cons – they could be hard to keep clean. 

 Good idea to keep all your utensils in. This would be a great way to stay organized instead of a canister sitting on the counter.
I just really love the layout of this laundry room.

Our island has our kitchen sink in it with the dishwasher as well. This is a great example of what I’m wanting for the drawers and cabinets on the island.

I love how the brick is behind the stove here.

Love! Love! Love! this for hair accessories, make up, etc.

This is a must right?

I just really loved this kitchen.

This vent hood.

Again, the glass doors on the very top.

  

This could keep all our keys and clutter off the countertops.

YES!

I also LOVED this kitchen. The brick again, and love this vent hood.

So the trash doesn’t have to be in the pantry.

Vent hood.
If you have any great ideas for a kitchen, laundry, or baths please share. 🙂 I love hearing everyone’s opinions and I am sure I am overlooking soo many things.
I hope everyone had a great weekend. Now back to our work week :).

Happy Fri-YAY!
If you have been following me on Instagram and Snapchat you have seen I have started a #noheatinjuly challenge on our hair. So for the whole month of July we are not blow drying, curling, straightening, zero, non, no heat applied to our hair. I will probably cheat once a week though, so don’t feel bad if you do too :). 
I am going to be doing a series of no heat styles with lots of braids! 
This little girlie is Sydney, the baby of my baby sisters haha! Look at her gorgeous hair! She seriously got blessed with the best hair out of the four of us. So thick, slightly wavy, and the prettiest shade of blonde. 
This look is easy to achieve. Follow the directions in the tutorial below. 🙂 


I hope you all have a great and safe 4th! What are you doing this weekend? I would love to hear. I will be posting pics of our house progress soon!
Thanks for reading!
