Stitch Fix: Version 2.0

I am almost due to get my next Stitch Fix box...so I guess it's 'bout time I reviewed my 2nd fix, huh?!

This fix wasn't quite as great as my first one...for a couple of reasons, but it was still "okay". Let me show you why:

The Tunic. I had asked for another tunic, because I loved August's tunic so much and it killed me to send it back! Again, my family loved this (I still felt it was a tad big, but maybe that's how it's supposed to fit?), and I agreed! Cute. Comfy. Work appropriate. And the color? LOVED IT! Verdict: Kept! (Duh.)

The Leggings. Confession: I peeked at my fix before it arrived. (Did you know you could do this? When you get notified that your box has shipped, you just go to "check out" and Google the items that are listed! Cheating. I know.) These leggings have a zipper on the back (rookie mistake in neglecting to take a picture of that detail) and screamed 1980 to me...I wanted to hate them. In fact...I hated them until I tried them on and then? Well...then I fell in love. But...they were WAY more money than I would ever spend on leggings (hello, $10 Old Navy leggings...I love you too) at $58 (I believe) there was no way I could justify them. So, my love/hate relationship with them ended very quickly. Verdict: Returned


This Dress: UGH. As in: UGHLY. :) I've seen this dress pop up in other reviews and I never did find it attractive or cute then...so when it showed up in my fix, I did an internal groan, but took one for the team and tried it on anyway. You guys, this dress is just as bad on as it is in pictures. The weird stitching/ruching thing it has going on was just bizarre and super unattractive. My husband looked at it, cocked his head, and asked what was wrong with that dress. Just...wrong. In so many ways. Verdict: Returned (totes, duh.)


This Shirt: When I saw and felt this shirt, I wanted to love it with all my heart and soul. It looked long enough to cover the wonky real estate that is my torso (I have a ridiculously long torso...and just as ridiculously short legs. Hey, we all have our cross to bear, right?!) and make it an appropriate shirt to wear with leggings. But...the slits. This shirt had side slits so high I felt like you could almost see my bra (okay, that's an exaggeration...but you could see the waistband of my pants). This shirt was like the leggings, but reverse...I wanted to love it, but I hated it! Verdict: Returned 


The Scarf. Since I knew I wasn't keeping all five things, I didn't even bother with the scarf. I liked it well enough, but I wasn't going to pay the sticker price on it...definitely would've loved it if I had gotten the "keep all 5" discount, but since I wasn't: Verdict: Returned 


And that wraps up my 2nd Stitch Fix! I continue to get so many compliments on the dress I kept from my first Stitch Fix, and have gotten a lot of compliments on my tunic from this fix...I can't wait to see what's in store for Stitch Fix #3!

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other day...my best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed braiding...watch the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!
Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, well...is the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
