  • Hello! I really want help in starting a blog, but I’m not very old e.g. under 18. So far, based on my reasearch, typepad seems the best way to go. I like the presentation, and it seems to be the simplest blogging site to use. What is your opinion, and can you give me some advice?
    xoxo Elise (the meerkat)
    P.S The blog will mainly be based around things I make, a sort of motivation for me to use my creative skills more often.

  • Love the first one!! Especially since my bangs are awkward while they’re growing out right now 😛
    xo Heather

  • I love both of these looks, but can never seem to pull them off. Oh well, at least there are plenty of pretty pictures for me to drool over.


  • I adore the first one! The volume of the second one is also so fun! 🙂

  • love these braids! Wish my hair could grow faster, so I could try out all of these!

  • The second way is rocking my world!!! Have to give it a try.

    xoxo –

  • Se me hace tan difícil hacerme las trenzas yo sola!!!

    Super feminine.
    I remember being a little girl, and my mom French braided my hair every day for school, and I hated it, and now I wish I had learned how to do it. 🙂
