Water Color French Macarons

French Macarons are just one of those must-have chic cookies that, without it, would make your wedding a bit incomplete. I say that because these things are EVERYWHERE! They're on Tumblr, Pinterest, in every wedding magazine, on the cover of catering trade publications. Trust me on this one, they are taking over!
With that said, if you wanted to do something a little different to make the trend all your own, you can get plain French Macarons and either water color them yourself, like you really have the time for that. Or, you could order them that way. With the price of these cookies going for $1.75 to $3.50 each, you're better off letting them do the artistry.
Have you figured out what you're going to do for your wedding reception sweet table? I've got some great cards that I've written about the subject, which you can see by clicking here. It could be exceedingly simple or outrageous and over the top. Make it all your own and stick to your budget.

How-To: Boho Braided Half Crown
The Beauty Department just published this super cute hair tutorial that I had to share with my gals and my brides on Vingle! As you can see, it's super easy and straight forward in the instructions. Try this out and let me know what you think! 1. Wave hair. 2. Gather and section off the top half of your hair (temple to temple) 3. Roll and clip this section up and away. 4. Next section off one inch sections on your right and left side from your hairline, near your temple (this is the area slightly above your ear). Braid this section vertically down. 5. Backcomb the braid instead of tying it off. Repeat on both sides. 6. Bring braids forward towards the face and unclip the top section of hair (step 3). Allow this section to fall and blend with the bottom half of your hair. 7. Take both braids from each side. 8. Bring these braids to the middle back of your head, cross them over each other. 9. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 10. Now make one inch sections below your first set of braids on each side. Repeat the first set of braids we did (Follow steps 4 and 5 ). Make sure the braid is directly under your last braids. 11. Once both sides are braided bring hair around to the middle back of your head and cross them over each other. 12. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 13. Once everything is fastened adjust your curls on the bottom half and style using a texture spray. 14. Finish off waves and look with a weightless protectant. 15. Make any further styling adjustments to your look. and Enjoy an easy DIY half up boho braided up-do. Photo & Post by Carachele Tyvan
