Friday's Dose of Delight: It's a Knot Mess

*Cricket chirps*
Yep, I know it's been pretty quiet around here. Besides sharing my new porch chair I don't think I've had the sense to think enough clear thoughts all week to even think about writing a blog post.
And yes, I've been sober....I think.
It's just been a crazy busy week! I'm definately looking forward to unwinding this weekend & hopefully catching some rays
{seriously, am I the only one who still hasn't gotten her summer tan on?}

So any who what am I doing here again?
Oh yeah! This week's Dose of Delight....a mini-mini round-up of things that inspired, thrilled, or delighted me this week.

Okay, unless you've been living under the Brooklyn bridge then you know the top knot do has been thee "it" do of the season. I've been especially smitten with the look lately & was inspired by this tutorial from Running on Happiness 
{HELLO! Does Katie not just ooze gorgeousness from every pore on her darn pretty head???}
 But seriously it's like the older I get the more hair disabled I become
{In high school I don't think I ever wore the same style twice in a week! Sigh.....}.
My top knot just looks like a topknot pigeon.
Google it. It's a real thing.
Seriously peeps, this isn't a complicated style but the only
time I have been able to perfect it is at 12:47 am.
Perfect, I'm sure my pillow and dogs loved it.
Anyone else hair challenged like me too?

 This week my heart has been skipping a beat for Phillip Phillips single "Home".
I've never been an American Idol fan so until recently I hadn't even heard of this dude.
But the lyrics are so lovely & how can you
not envy someone who has the same last name as their first name?
Imagine how easy kindergarten must have been for this guy.
Yeah, sure....I would have gotten alot of star stickers too if I only had to learn how to spell one name!
His mother is a genius.

Have a delightful weekend!

Love it! I just figured out how to do the sock bun and I am pretty darn excited about it ha!

Regina of Live Delightfully said...

YES!!! I LOVE the top know! I tried doing sock buns when I had long hair and could never get it done without being able to see a lot of the sock. Frustrating! Now my hair is short and I keep seeing the top knot every where and I can't do anything about it. Oh woe is me!!! haha. But seriously, I'll be revisiting this style when my hair is long enough.

And LOVE that song! Never heard of him, or the song, but I'm digging it! I went on an iTunes shopping spree yesterday and might have to continue today with that little number.

Happy Friday (the 13th)! Here's to not running into any hockey-mask-wearing-killers today!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the top knot. I am pretty hair challenged though and for some reason I can never get my hair to poof. It just completely and totally refuses to do it, it also doesn't help that I hate teasing my hair because its so bad for it. But I love this style so much!

i have tried the top know and well it is a failure. i have so little hair and it is so thin, it makes about a 1/2 inch of the bun. I think it is so cute on everyone who wears it though!

Very cute topknot. I have never tried it...I think I am too lazy! Have a great weekend!!
