Another video coming your way.

I keep watching this LDR for H&M video. Its so strange and stylish and slightly silly. I love the typist with the curls, the girls on the sofa, and Lanas creepy long nails. Her hair basically never looks bad.

Silk Flower Crown (a childs btw)

I made this flower crown for Piper Jane a few years ago and have found myself wearing it randomly around the apartment when I clean or brush my teeth or lift weights. If you havent ever experienced what its like to live alone, I recommend you try it. You will soon find that you are a very weird person. Things like lifting weights while wearing a childs size flower crown are just things you do sometimes. Anyway, this crown is way too small for me. It looks funny when my hair is down, but I thought it might look pretty with the old grab and pin up do I sometimes do. If you dont know what the old grab and pin up do is, you are so missing out! You just grab and pin! Sometimes you do a pony tail first (like I did here), sometimes you curl first, but then you just grab and pin! Im not kiddinworks every time.


Anyway, I made this crown with a simple crafting wire, green tape for your silk flowers needs, and silk flowers from Michaels. I do think it looks like its made out of silk flowers, but its still pretty. Ive had a good crush on flower crowns for a long time, and dont know why I havent made one for myself. Little Piper is probably sick of me borrowing the one I made for her anyway. I wouldnt mind having one of my own that fits my adult sized head properly, and that would allow me to wear my hair down. Also, I wouldnt mind mastering the REAL flower crown. Silkies are nice, but the scent of real flowers in my hair would make for a very good day. Still inspired by these ones.

PS all this talk about flower crowns has me thinking Halloween costume thoughts. Its never too soon you know.

Lana Del Reys flowery headpieces.

I was recently introduced (well, my ears were) to Lana Del Rey by my friend Amanda Blair (you guys know her!)

Before I knew she had a pretty face and beautiful hair, I met her voice. She can sing so beautifully that all you can do is listen. Ive been listening to her for about a month now, and have started to become interested in who this girl actually is. So, yes, she has amazing hair and a gorgeous face (and dude, pouty mouth!)also, she calls herself a gangsta Nancy Sinatra which is important to me because These Boots Were Made For Walkin was the first song I ever memorized.But her flowery head pieces are the thing about her. They make me scream out loud and I want one in every color. And I want them to be made out of real flowers like hers.

See below.

Im always a little sad to find out that some musicians come from a lot of money. It seems like an unfair advantage in the art world. To me, musicians (or any artist) are supposed to struggle in the beginning, it makes their music more authentic. Lana came from millionaire parents who found the right people to create an image for her (her real name is elizabeth grant) including a good plastic surgeon, but at least the girl really can sing. Its just a little weird to find out that someone who seems so mysterious and interesting is kind of a fake. Despite all the controversy over her, her music is worth checking out. Give Video Games and Blue Jeans a listen!

Also, its pretty safe to say that Im basically in love with floral head pieces. I think I like the top one the best.
