Roaring 20's inspired Headband with Curls Hairstyle & Giveaway

Time:  20 minutes
Supplies:  brush/comb, curling iron/wand, headband
Difficulty:  medium

Giveaway Time!!!!
Woohoo!!!! (keep reading for details)

I was playing around with some
hairstyles a few months ago (because that's what I do in my spare time to keep bringing you fun styles) and I came up with this one.

I thought it was fabulous and came out to show the fam.

My dad said, "Hey, Great Gatsby. Nice hair-do."  

I had no idea what he meant.  Turns out it's a book.  My dad graduated college in English Literature.  He's always referencing something or other. (I've stopped asking questions.)

Now I know about the book, and the Roaring 20's (or at least the styles. The book sounded dull).  So in my house, this do is called the Great Gatsby.

You can use a knit headband, or what I love is a dressier headband.  So that's what we're giving away.

Lilla Rose is a fabulous website with lot of really pretty hair accessories.  In fact, they had so many cute things, I couldn't decide what I liked best.  So they're giving us three separate giveaways!  Today's is for a headband of your choice.  The next two giveaways are for accessories I will feature in the next few weeks.  So keep checking back and entering.

To enter for this one, all you have to do is leave me a suggestion for a book I would really, and I mean, REALLY love to read.  Not the Great Gatsby.  
I'm always looking for suggestions.  So if you can recommend me a good read, just leave me a comment below, and you're entered.  I'll post the winner on Thursday.  And that lucky gal will be able to browse Lilla Rose's website and select a headband.
Thanks for playing,

  9. Hey I love your headband and you too, your hair is gorgeous. One of my favorite series of all time is the Betsy-Tacy series by Maud Hart Lovelace. The books take place in the very late 19th and early 20th centuries and trace her life from when she was a little girl to after she's married. The first one of her in high school is Heaven to Betsy. Hope you enjoy them. They're the best!

  11. I just finished "Cinder" by Marissa Meyer. It's was great. Picture Cinderella science fiction.

  12. Jenni is right, the Mildred Keith series by Martha Finley is fabulous! However, I like the Elsie Dinsmore series by Martha Finley way more! Trust me, the first 9 books of the Elsie Dinsmore series are amazing!!! I liked the first 8 so much that I re-read them with my mom. :) I also just read To Have and to Hold by Mary Johnston for a book discussion. Everyone else that I've talked to that has read it really likes it. It has action, romance, and so much more! You can get it free on kindle and Project Gutenberg. Enjoy!

  13. I love this idea of posting your favorite reads. Now I have a whole bunch of ideas of what to read next. Awesome. Love the blog, Bella. Love the headband too. You have got to read the Matched series by Ally Condie. If you like dystopian books, you will love this.

  14. You guys are so awesome. Thanks for all the great book ideas. I'll be hitting the library for sure. I picked the winner and it was a random draw with names in a hat. And the winner is Andrea with her pitch for the Betsy Tacy series by Maud Hart Lovelace. Please email us to get your prize. The rest of you guys keep checking back.
