Time Travelers Wife

So today I saw the new movie called The Time Travelers Wife. I have got to say that it is now one of my favorite chick flicks next to the notebook. I thought it was so adorable but yet heartbreaking. Its about a girl named Claire (Rachael McAdams) and when she was younger there was a "Time Traveler" that used to always somehow end up in her meadow where she played. Henry (Eric Bana), who is the time traveler, could not control his ability to travel. So it would happen at random times and when he would travel he would always show up naked at places. The little girl (Claire) became used to him showing up randomly. So, she started leaving clothes out for him so he wouldn't be naked. Over time he became her best friend. In real life Henry was actually traveling into the past, so in real time Claire is the same age as him. He works in a library and one day the bumped into each other. She remembers him but he doesn't remember her because he is visiting her in the future (I know hard to follow right?). So she asks him out to dinner and explains everything. He then realizes what is going on and after being with her he falls in love with her. Then they have a child and all the other events happen over time. I won't get too into the movie on my blog because I don't want to give away any special parts (: I highly recommend this movie! The only thing about the movie is you have to be into watching it. If you don't really care about the movie you won't be able to follow it very well and you could get very easily confused. Other than that I loved it, it makes me want to go and read the book very badly! This movie is a tad bit similar to The Notebook so if you liked that movie you'll LOVE this one! Plus it has the same actress that was in The Notebook, now I must say I love her acting. She is so real in all the films she's in and you can tell she's a hard working actress and really gets into her part!

An adorable Fall hairstyle.

So lately I've been playing around with my hair and I found a super cute hairstyle. Its using medium sized rollers and then braiding your bangs (or layer(s)) back or a few small braids around the head. I found that this is a super flirty look and I found that I get a lot of complements when I wear my hair this way. If you look at the picture to the right of Blake Lively (Serena from Gossip Girl) the hairstyle I do is pretty much identical. The reason you use the rollers instead of blow drying or straightening the hair is because the rollers give the hair more volume. The volume adds the beautiful bouncy texture, it also creates a cute flip out of the hair at the bottom. I'm going to explain how to do this hairstyle as well as I can online.

  1. First brush out any tangles you have in your hair.
  2. Then apply a heat protecting spray all over your hair and comb through.
  3. Once you have done that now section your hair out in fours.
  4. Clip back all but one section of hair, so the one section is easy to work with.
  5. Then take about 1 1/2 inches of hair from that section and put the roller in.
  6. Repeat until you finish all sections.
  7. Once your hair is all in the rollers lightly mist hairspray over the top of the rollers.
  8. Then sit about 10-15 minutes or until your rollers cool to spray it with hairspray once again and then take them out.
  9. When you have all of your hair down run your fingers lightly through it a couple times or if your hair is likely to get greasy by the end of the day then shake your hair out a few times.
  10. Once that is done you can spray it once more with hairspray just to settle the style.
  11. Then braid your bangs, layers, or pieces of your hair the way you want to braid the.
  12. Now your finished! Lightly mist a shine spray all over your finished style and your ready to go!
