My Favorite Pinterest Pin Ever!

by Christine@TheAums on March 22, 2012 · 21 comments

I couldn’t resist this week’s prompt for Mama Kat’s Pretty Much World Famous Writer’s WorkshopPinterest Challenge, find something you’ve pinned, TRY it and share it. Was it worth pinning?

First, this would probably be a good time to ask you to follow me on Pinterest, so if you’d be so inclined, please Follow Me on Pinterest. And if you don’t know or understand what Pinterest is, I always say it’s like this:

Only waaaaay better, you know, copyright controversy aside.

Now, if you’ve seen me recently, you’d know that my hair has achieved the coveted below boob status…which is saying a lot considering I’ve nursed 4 babies! It’s also achieved the not-so-coveted salt ‘n’ pepper look, but moving on…I came across one of Jenny on the Spot’s pins for this hair tutorial on hand blow dried curls, and well, I gave it a try and this is what I got on my first attempt:

I love how it draws attention away from the bags under my eyes.

As someone who knows exactly two hairstyles, up in a butterfly clip or down, just down, maybe with a hat, this was AMAZING! Like seriously life-changing! So, yes indeed, this pinterest challenge was well-worth pinning. And if I don’t exercise/sweat too hard, I can get a good 2 to 3 days out of this before I have to break out the dry hair shampoo.

And there you have it folks! If you’re new or visiting me from Mama Kat’s, thanks for stopping by and please consider following me on Facebook and twitter.

Absolutely fabulous! I mean the hair, not Eddie and Patsy.

Hahaha! If only I was brave enough to go red.

After you posted that photo on IG I followed the tutorial and have been successfully wearing my hair like that since. You changed my life with that pin. YOU AND JENNY are changing the world baby!!!

Bellisima, Stasha! Thanks for sharing!

You look amazing!!


Christine@TheAums March 22, 2012 at 3:43 pm

Thanks Elizabeth…you should try it!


Elizabeth March 22, 2012 at 9:00 pm

I’m thinking when my hair grows just a bit more…. it’s only to my shoulders, about an inch past! And by the way, I LOVE dry shampoo!! I only recently discovered it (thanks to sis-in-law) and it’s the BEST!


Christine@TheAums March 22, 2012 at 10:09 pm

You see, we’re really not that different at all ;)


Elizabeth March 23, 2012 at 8:35 pm

Hee hee!

Wow! I love Pinterest, and I love it when I pin something and actually use it ;)
Your hair is gorgeous, as are you…I see no bags.


Christine@TheAums March 22, 2012 at 10:08 pm

Thank you Jen…I know I searched through instagram filters until I found one that minimized the baggage.


Jessica March 23, 2012 at 9:52 am

You did a great job on this hair tutorial. Mine didn’t turn out as nice but I think that’s because I got lazy with the blow drying. My arms started to hurt.


Christine@TheAums March 23, 2012 at 5:16 pm

Thanks…I think I told you, but the trick for me is to wait til hair is more dry than wet. Definitely minimizes blow drying time. I thought your waves looked good!


Kat March 24, 2012 at 9:22 pm

Duuuude that would NEVER work on my hair. It can’t keep a curl if my life depended on it, but how I long for hair like YOURS. That worked so good!!!


Christine@TheAums March 27, 2012 at 9:36 pm

Thanks…I still think you should try it. I think the tutorial said something about spraying a salt spray before blow drying if your hair doesn’t usually keep a curl. I’m sure the result would be a cute beachy wave on you.


Jessica March 27, 2012 at 4:31 am

Love. Love. Love. You’re gorgeous. And, I don’t know what you’re talking about. I don’t see any bags under your eyes. Seriously.


Christine@TheAums March 27, 2012 at 9:37 pm

Thank you, Jessica…for the compliment and blurry vision ;)

gorgeous! Your hair always look beautiful. Mine breaks off and wont’ grow any longer. And it used to be thick, but now it’s so thin and sad. Thanks kids!

Thanks, Leah :) I used to thank the kids for thin hair and receding hair line (postpartum hair loss). Now I just thank them for the grays.
