“Not So Basic” Ponytails: Hairstyles You Can Do In 10 Minutes Or Less!

Raise your hand if you love feeling put together, but hate how long it can take (raises both hands, plus feet for added emphasis).

If you are anything like me (and I’m going to guess you are since you’re reading this blog) having your hair down sounds nice in theory, but about 5 minutes in you are ready to put it up. I am running around all day, with a baby who LOVES to pull anything within his reach (e.g. my hair) and I can’t stand having things in my face. It drives me nuts. So I usually end up wearing my hair up in either the mom bun (you know the one you threw up without a mirror with an elastic band you found in the couch cushions) or a basic ponytail. Neither of these hairstyles make me feel good about how I look.

So I have compiled 3 of the quickest, easiest, most flattering, “not so basic” ways to wear your hair up so you can keep your hair out of your face and still feel dolled up!

My Favourite MAC Lipsticks For Fall

For as long as I can remember I have had a special place in my heart for MAC lipsticks. They’re kind of the OG’s in my mind. I’ve spent more than I’d like to admit on them but honestly, they are totally worth it.

One of the reasons I love fall so much, besides being a girl (sorry but we all know how much girls love fall), is the array of lipsticks which are on trend during the season. You’ve got nudes, browns, berries, dark colours, and reds. I really can’t think of another season that has that many colour choices!

Look Good, Feel Good: How to Look Put Together with Minimal Effort


I know we all want to look our best every day.

I also know that nobody wants to get up at 4 am to make this happen.

Do I want to go out everyday looking like I’ve just come back from the dead? Or do I suck it up and wake up even earlier than I already do to to put makeup on and look human again?
