The Boho Braided Bun

Perfect for mornings when your mane is looking (and acting) less than desirable, take a stab at the beauty world’s current must do: the braided bun. Easy enough to create on your own, this messy-chic style showcases the coveted “trying, but not trying too hard” appeal. Lacking the need to look perfect, and with an end-of-the-day bonus – hello, sexy tousled waves – Emily Schuman, creator of  the fabulous blog, Cupcakes & Cashmere, demonstrates the ins-and-outs of this polished-meets-relaxed look, here.

Four Things We Love // Fall 2013 Edit

Weekends are all about kicking back and taking a much needed breather. Whether you relax by running around town, meeting up with friends or simply curling up on the couch with a good book, hot drink and a comforting meal, we hope you enjoy every minute of it.

Breakfast in bed never tasted so good thanks to Oatmeal Pancakes with Maple-Glazed Roasted Apples.

There may not be a more fall-perfect maternity sweater – we love the cut, the color, the whole thing.

Put away that flat iron; a messy-chic low bun is just what the weekend calls for.

We’re reading the inspiring book, Words That Matter, because if Oprah tells you it’s a must-read, it is.
